Gwen is a coach rooted in the person-centred approach. She starts with where her clients are, adapting to their needs. She challenges and supports them to find creative solutions and build their resourcefulness, to achieve the change and growth they want.
Her work is neurodiversity-inclusive, trauma informed, anti-racist and LGBTQIA+ affirmative.
Her professional background is in the creative and cultural sector, third sector, and Higher Education. She is also a qualified integrative counsellor-coach and regularly works therapeutically with autistic clients and those with ADHD.
Gwen’s coaching approach draws on Egan’s Skilled Helper and Kline’s Thinking Environment. She is a particular fan of Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication. Gwen also coaches in German.
Gwen trained as a coach after having workplace coaching herself. She experienced the huge feeling of empowerment that came from finding her own answers in a non-judgmental space. This is something she wants to share with others.
Gwen has worked as a coach since 2016. Her clients include people juggling multiple jobs and complex partnerships, those transitioning from study to paid work, those taking on leadership roles for the first time, and those returning to work after a break.
She also devises and delivers workshops on coaching and communication skills.
Gwen is especially interested in working with early-career creatives from underrepresented backgrounds, coaching outdoors in green spaces, and supporting people navigating diverse languages and cultures.
