Jerry Gilpin


The first 25 years of my professional life was spent in education and Christian ministry, as a teacher, Church of England priest and Oxford University Chaplain. In each of these roles I began by thinking I had something important to tell others; but quickly learned that it was much better to ask and support than to tell. In 2004 I took and introductory course in using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to support my Chaplaincy work, and have gone on to qualify as a registered user of the MBTI, and obtained an Advanced Diploma in Professional Coach-Mentoring from the OCM in 2007, when I started my own business, Perception Personal and Professional Development. I am also a qualified Action-Learning Set facilitator, a graduate of the Wilsher Group Change Leadership and Coaching College, and in the process of accreditation to use professional 360 feedback instruments.

Coaching approach

My approach to coaching is founded on the conviction that people in all walks of life have huge untapped potential; it's my role to help them become more fully alive. Professional development is inextricably linked to the rest of life, so while I am comfortable working with clients in a strict performance-focussed contract, I am always alive to the whole-life context in which an individual exists, and committed to a holistic approach. Within the coaching encounter, progress is achieved through a mixture of a strongly supportive relationship, skilled questioning and listening and clear accountability. The responsibility for change and growth is always owned by the cleint; as is the success s/he achieves. Celebration and affirmation are vital constituent parts of almost every client meeting, and the relationship is designed to come to a clear end, usually within six to ten meetings.
