I have spent decades looking into the question of what gives life meaning. It has taken me down many paths, and into many processes and methods. I coach from the experience of what has worked for me.
I was drawn to coaching because it is a partnership, a co-creation, an open and honest exploration that can bring about profound insights and lasting change for those willing to do the work.
I believe everyone can benefit from the support and undivided attention of an experienced coach.
I also use the Enneagram, a system of personality typology, that is extremely effective as a tool for self knowledge, as well as a great way to understand the world view of colleagues, family members and life partners. Together the client and I unpack what's really important to them, what they want to achieve, and what is in the way. We examine their values and beliefs, and work out what is serving them and what needs to be let go.
We design a path forward that meets their objectives at a pace that is sustainable and enjoyable. The client has the freedom in the coaching relationship to try out ideas and use the coach as a sounding board in the process. It is rewarding and humbling for me to work with individuals who are dedicated to their own success, and to be a part of their journey.

I love working with Gwen - her loving, gentle presence helps me lean into the places of my life and heart that I'm working hard to listen to. She listens well and her guided meditative practices are a gift to my personal exploration and a grounding for my own spiritual practices.L. Robinson
Gwen is great. I love working with her. She has a deep compassion for the human experience. Her vast wealth of knowledge and life experience, as well as her sweetness is a real comfort. Going through stuff which is particularly sensitive and touching on painful memories is not an easy process but she make the journey about as easy as it could be. I always feel better after we talk.Delsing Van Kampen
Gwen joins coaching practice with potent intuition; this combination creates a shared field of insight and comprehension about any task at hand. In our sessions, not only did she help clarify and resolve the particular task, but the reflections and understanding radiated out into more self-understanding and clarity about the future.Carol Ferris
