Jen Gash BSc Hons OT, HCPC, FRSA
Coach, Occupational Therapist & Artist
I am a highly qualified, experienced coach and therapist, who has worked for over twenty years with individuals and teams. I work with a wide range of clients including those in large statutory organisations, through to individuals starting new businesses, ventures and personal projects.
As a coach, I work with a variety of tools, developmental frameworks and theoretical models. I am a visiting lecturer at Worcester University and regularly teach coaching skills to various groups. I am also a practicing visual artist.
My varied and extensive background leads me to work powerfully with individuals, who may have hidden challenges that are impacting on relationships and performance at work, including:
– Highly creative people who struggle to harness and integrate their strengths at work
– People with hidden problems e.g. neurodiversity, sensory integration issues & mental health challenges.
– People with a complex mix of physical and psycho-social health problems. These may result in frequent, unexplained absences, long term sickness or a mixture of pain, anxiety, depression and fatigue.
– Individuals who need to make a radical shift
– teams and at an organisational level, especially where radical creativity and systemic change is required.
