About Us

John Gray and Penny Kay are two experienced, qualified and valued coaches. They take a pragmatic and solutions focused approach to every session of coaching and supervision. Clients have included CEOs and Chairs of several national charities, managers and leaders, other self-employed consultants, coaches and trainers and individuals wishing to resolve conflicts and plan for a major change in their lives. As well as focussing on work based issues, (known as executive coaching) and regular work based support (often known as non-managerial supervision), Penny also offers wellness coaching.

Coaching is an integrative method of problem solving, resolving dilemmas and discovering a way forward. Here is a summary from ILM that shows how  the development of a ‘coaching culture’ in an organisation can be beneficial. But coaching can also be very useful for individuals who want to make positive changes, including their wish to improve their overall health. This is where Penny’s knowledge of wellness approaches coincides with coaching and clients may want to combine the two in a period or growth.

If you don’t know much about a coaching approach – another helpful definition is:

Coaching is a professional relationship between a trained coach and a client (who may be an individual or a group) with the goal to enhance the client’s work or home life, their leadership or management or their health, personal and professional development.

In summary the benefits of a coaching approach include::

  • Clarity about what you want, why you want it and how you can get it
  • Bridging the gap between where you are now and where you want to be
  • Strategies and techniques which facilitate you to reach your goal faster
  • Overcome obstacles, low confidence and insecurities
  • Explore and evaluate all possible options available
  • Dedicated time, support, encouragement and motivation
  • Wellness support during transition periods.
