Welcome to Guildford Coaches Group

Where like minds meet to learn and grow

COVID-19 Update

We have been monitoring the ongoing coronavirus situation and want to minimise any risk to members.  We have moved to an on-line offer temporarily and these events are shorter and free of charge to members to provide as much support as we can at this time.  We will continue to monitor the situation on a regular basis and update members on any further planned changes.

The Guildford Coaches Group was founded in 2007 by Kim Gregory and Angela O'Connell and membership continues to grow and flourish today, with other 150 active members.

Our purpose is to act as a professional home to coaches who are seeking personal development and mutual support. We are known for our friendly relaxed atmosphere and sense of community. Not only are our events a source of learning but being part of our network affords building of new relationships and always provides not just contacts but friends.

Our purpose is to act as a professional home to local coaches who are seeking personal development and mutual support. We are known for our friendly relaxed atmosphere and sense of community. Not only are our events a source of learning but being part of our network affords building of new relationships and always provides not just contacts but friends.

We run events on Friday mornings (6 per year) in a wonderful room at The Trinity Centre Guildford.

Our speakers are professionals (sometimes even members) who are happy to share their expertise on specialist aspects of Coaching.

These sessions are interesting, interactive and usually great fun as we all work together to practise new skills and techniques.

Most of our events earn ICF Continuing Coach Education Certificates and they are a brilliant way of keeping up your CPD.

"I have been coming to the GCG for a few years now and it is always a welcome part of my month: an opportunity to meet like-minded people who are warm and generous. And an opportunity to learn something new or a refresher on something useful."

So why join? This is what our members say

  • I have heard more inspiring speakers at Guildford Coaches Group than anywhere. And I do not know a more creative or welcoming group, whether you are already an experienced coach, or just dipping your toe into the world of coaching for the first time.

  • I love being a member of Guildford Coaches Group for two reasons. First the social aspect of being able to meet with such a varied group of wonderful, experienced coaches; and Secondly the incredible education opportunities it’s presented.
