Gerrie is an insightful facilitator who seeks to create an environment of trust, enabling people and teams to step into new possibilities. ‘I have discovered how to listen for when the world talks back to me, learning about the power of the dynamics present in a situation and how to notice them and take them into account, so bringing a deeper knowledge into the moment.’

Stewart Greenwell's background, until May 2013, was mainly in local authority social services, finishing up as Strategic Director, People with Newport City Council and that included the role of Director of social services, as well of responsibility for education. He has always been keen to listen to what it feels like to be on the receiving end of social services and has learned a lot, from understanding what gets in the way of people taking control of their own lives. Since 2013, he has worked in a variety of roles trying to bring social services and the NHS closer together, since that offers greater likelihood of not giving people the 'runaround'. He trained as a coach in 2015 and enjoys using that model of working in almost all of his current work, since, at its heart, it helps people to make choices that improve their personal and professional lives.
