Catherine Gray

Catherine is accredited by the ICF and has been coaching since 2016. She also has an

Applied Neuroscience and Brain Health​ Certification through The Neuroscience Academy and Strengths Based Coaching through the Professional Christian Coaching Institute. 
Her background has been in admin and learning support roles which fueled a passion for enabling people to find their giftings and strengths and to be able to confidently use those in any job / situation they might find themselves in. She was also on staff at the church she attends for a time before wanting to focus more on coaching and her other role as a foster carer.

She primarily offers 3 types of coaching:

  • Strengths Alignment – you take the CliftonStrengths Assessment and then have 5+ hours with Catherine, unpacking what you are uniquely talented in and how to maximise your growth and joy both in the work place and beyond.

  • Clarity on your calling and purpose – 6+ sessions on finding out more about who you are and how your dreams, calling and purpose fit in with your current situation and future plans. This type of coaching also involves lots of chatting to God!

  • General life coaching as and when you need it on anything and everything you may feel stuck with or challenged by. This may be more suitable for you if you like the idea of the options above but would rather not include such a spiritual element to the sessions.

 Catherine is based in Bristol and offers 1:1 coaching face to face, on the phone or online.

Shelagh Windsor-Richard

Shelagh  has had a varied career which has included running a hotel, a restaurant and a post office. She has worked in HR since 1999, first in the corporate sector and then for charities (including Latin Link and All Nations Christian College).

She has been a committed Christian since 1974. Shelagh has always been passionate about supporting people to grow into the fullness of God’s plan and purpose for their life. She trained as a coach with The Coaches Institute in London in 2008 after completing a Masters Degree at Bath University. More recently she has trained to be a spiritual director.

When Shelagh is not journeying with people in coaching and spiritual direction or helping with church ministries, you will most often find her in the garden. Her eldest granddaughter, when about 5 years old, said to her - as they were gardening together - “Granny, you like to make things grow don’t you?” Shelagh loves to see new growth - in her garden and in the people who want a coach to support them as they discern purpose and actions to take them forward.
