Our simple idea- People who brave their day, their way, can inspire the rest of us to lead braver lives, in uncertain times.
Hello we are the Gavigans.
We are Charley and Colin.
We set up our International bravery coaching business to lead our bravest lives in our own uncertain times. We are adding life to our years.
Together we bring 65 years of therapeutic and leadership practice and 118 years lived experience.
Our intention is to support individuals, social and private business in Scotland and the USA to manage their imagined and real fears, at work and in their own lives.
We do this in three ways:
- Hands-on masterclasses
- 1:1 & Peer Coaching
- Bravery Storytelling
I’m a hope-a-holic who is learning every day to ditch my terrifying fears, anxieties and self-defeating beliefs in order to practice living and leading my bravest life.
Colin has spent over 30 years working in leadership, managerial and therapeutic roles within Glasgow homelessness and community based addiction services.
Bravery in Action
This followed a 2 year Scottish Government funded project to increase resilience, build a bravery culture and practice with social care leaders. Together we shared reflections and demonstrated the experiential methods and approaches used.
We’ve also added an example of a Bravery coaching session in action !
Thanks go to Dr Jennifer M Jones of Media for Communities for the filming & edits.
