Working with Gayle has been life changing. In a few hours we worked through patterns of thought and behaviour that I have struggled with for decades. We made realistic, manageable plans together that felt completely unique and tailored to my circumstances. I'm already seeing benefits to my career and mental wellbeing. Working with Gayle has been like opening a window and letting fresh air into my mind and my life. She was calm, compassionate and has a great sense of humour. I can't recommend working with her highly enough.

Gayle has worked with Place2Be in two different capacities - one as a Business Development Consultant and secondly as a Coach. On both fronts Gayle has been brilliant to work with - a huge amount of energy, a determination to move things along and a shared passion in bringing out the best in people, be that the children and young people we support or our teams. We have progressed extensively in the areas Gayle has supported us in. Highly recommend Gayle!

        I have known Gayle since 2012 when she trained and qualified as part of the internal coaching network with the Open University. Over the following years, she has regularly coached managers in various roles across the university. She has played an active role in the coaching network, attending regular supervision and on-going training. I have consistently received excellent feedback from her ‘coachees’ and their line managers on the impact of her coaching. Gayle has been one of our high performing coaches. She is very adaptable and depending on the needs of the ‘coachees’, has worked with clients via face to face, Skype and telephone sessions. She has also worked successfully offering intensive one off sessions as well as under taking longer term contracts with clients. I have no hesitation in recommending

Gayle as a coach.

I enjoyed being challenged to think about things differently and thinking about why I might believe certain things/react in a certain way.

Gayle was very good. She was welcoming, informative, very well organised and good at drawing people out. There was a good mix of listening and participatory elements and it had a good level of 'coaching specific' material without getting bogged down in theory. She was very good at bringing the theory into the everyday reality.

         Over a period of around 6-8 months, Gayle worked with me to help identify barriers in my thinking and provided some useful tools to help boost my confidence and performance in the workplace. Gayle listened, challenged some of my assumptions and gently encouraged me to grow and push myself. As a direct result of her input and support I progressed to a senior manager role and I would thoroughly recommend her as an excellent coach.


I really enjoyed how the session made me look at coaching from a different perspective. There was a big mental shift in my outlook to working with my team. Really felt that Gayle was hugely engaging, she knew the content really well and the pace of the session was really well gauged. I enjoyed the mixture of breakout rooms and group discussion, really couldn't fault it.
