Gemma Halliday


Hi, I’m Gemma Halliday and I’m 25. I’ve been working at River Aesthetics for 2 and half years. I am the Lead Aesthetician at the clinic. This year I have spoken at FACE and CCR conferences. River Aesthetics has made me fall in love with my career choice. Aesthetics to me is confidence and growth in self esteem. I am so passionate about finding a treatment plan which the patient is just as excited about.

Out of work you will find me outdoors or in the water and most probably brunching with friends on Sunday.

Jasmine Kneale

Patient Coordinator

My name is Jasmine Kneale and I am 26 years old. I joined the River Aesthetics Team in July as a Patient Coordinator.

Having always had a passion for the beauty industry and thriving for a career in the health industry River Aesthetics has given me the perfect blend and balance for both!

Prior to River Aesthetics I completed my Beauty Industry NVQ levels 1 & 2 where I started my career as a aesthetician which led to working for a luxury make-up brand. What I love most about this industry is the science behind each treatment is always improving and I still find myself fascinated by what we can accomplish. Also, I love the rewarding side of my job role seeing patients’ confidence grow as they go through their journeys with us.
It is such pleasure to be part of our patients’ journey and assist them throughout this. I look forward to many more years being part of River Aesthetics.

Jessica Sedgwick

Aesthetic Practitioner

Hi, I’m Jessica Sedgwick, I’m 23 and I am the newest member of the River Aesthetics team. I work as an Aesthetic Practitioner.

Originally from West Sussex, I am just settling into Bournemouth life. I started in beauty therapy and have been in the industry for 4 years. I worked in salons and spas before but now working in Aesthetics is the ultimate dream job and just over a month in I’m loving it already!

There’s so much to explore and learn and to be able to give back the knowledge we know and gain along the way to our patients is really exciting. I’ve loved meeting everyone so far, providing hydrafacials and CoolSculpting and I’m excited to see what’s next and what the future holds for me at River Aesthetics.

Out of work I enjoy travelling, going to the beach and spending time with my lovely boyfriend.
