Dr. Jennifer Napier
DIRECTOR OF CONTEXTUALYSE
DOCTOR, EXECUTIVE COACH, FACILITATOR, ORGANISATIONAL CONSULTANT, SPEAKER
I’m a practising doctor, coach and organisational consultant with a passion for helping executives and teams achieve optimal health and wellbeing.
I've been coaching across sectors since 2012, working with teams and individuals. I take a rigorous approach to enable flourishing, reconnecting people with their ‘why’ and helping them create their energising ‘how’. I aim for transformational work by creating robust, trusting relationships in my coaching, training and consulting work. I work with leaders and teams to develop healthy, resilient ways of embedding values in the work and life, thus enhancing their vitality, and helping them create collaborative, satisfying and effective human ecosystems.
As a doctor with years of medical experience in hospitals, public health and general practice, I ground my approach in a robust empirical base, and years’ of experience of working with people to improve their health. I've trained in psychotherapy, hold a Masters degree in Consulting and Leading in Organisations, and have published academic research on wellbeing and resilience at work. I also integrate key insights offered by modern neuroscience and positive psychology.
I also share my passion for wellbeing at work by training and speaking on human wellbeing and the workplace.

Dr. HELEN BARNABY
DOCTOR, COACH, FACILITATOR
I’ve got 25 years experience as a GP, and really enjoy helping people reach their full potential. I love facilitating their understanding of themselves, and their capacity to change.
I’m trained in coaching and Transactional Analysis, both of which are powerful tools for working with people. They have confirmed for me how invaluable a supportive relationship is in helping people grow. Good communication is central to my work as this is the means to establishing a good working relationship, but also to clarifying issues and goals. And so I strive to keep evolving my own communication skills to build rapport and help my clients. As well as working with individuals, I am energised by teaching and training.

Dr. DAVID GWYNNE
I am a GP partner in Devon. On a daily basis I am privileged to witness the impact of effective communication and the change it can inspire. Using the coaching approach - hand in hand with positive psychology - generates a powerful environment to enhance personal understanding and facilitate transformation. Coaching is an empowering, liberating and positive process which engages individuals with their own resilience to meet their goals, and navigate their own change journey.
As well as being a GP, I run a medical education and lecturing business for clinicians, I am a clinical lecturer at our medical school and I also own and run a farm. As you may have guessed, I enjoy diversity and love meeting challenges!
Dr. CLARE HARRIS
I am a coach with 17 years’ experience of working with people on improving their health in general practice. How do you make those sustainable lifestyle changes that will have a huge positive impact on your health? This is the arena of health coaching. With effective coaching you can achieve your potential.
I love combining coaching with scientific medical expertise to support individuals make the changes they may have been struggling with for years. I am inspired by the huge benefits that coaching can bring to a person’s health and wellbeing.
