Coaching, Classes & Community
Welcome to our Portfolio
Stone Changes has a social change mission to support greater diversity into senior leadership positions. Through our programmes we support women, ethnic minorities and those from disadvantaged backgrounds to thrive amidst uncertainty and prevent workplace change undermining their professional and economical progress.
Jay has a truly mesmerising way of delivering her expertise in "Thriving in Uncertainty". Jay is able to provide tangible tools, grounded in years of scientific and change management research, that you can implement in your own life. It's given me the motivation to figure out my "North Star" and achieve it!
The world needs Jay and her teachings right now, more than ever. She gave us practical things to help us deal with change. Jay was open, compassionate, and shared her own vulnerabilities enabling us to have a safe space to share ours too & empower us to come through this period of change.
Having Jay to challenge me has made me realise that nothing is impossible - it made me realise how resilient I am already. Coaching with Jay has allowed me the time and space to challenge my current way of thinking. I felt so comfortable working with Jay as she empathises and listens with interest.
Pooja is a Sub Agent in the Construction industry and grew up in a deprived area of Luton. With recent changes being made, brought about by COVID, and the fact that Pooja is one of the very few women in her company, Pooja was working herself into the ground on her way to burnout trying to prove herself. She was looking for a way to create a better balance in her life and develop the interpersonal and leadership skills to navigate tricky work relationships.

"We were extremely fortunate to find Jay who was flexible, helped develop the programme content and was also able to provide extensive coaching & pastoral support for participants, some of whom, struggled significantly with the personal reflection aspects of the programme."
Emma is an Events Manager and was made redundant as a result of COVID19. As the events industry was one of the first to shut down and is likely to be one of the last to be reinstated, she has struggled to find employment. She was looking for a way to improve her confidence and mindset in finding a new role. Emma participated in one of Stone Changes 6-week coaching, career development, and leadership programmes.
"This was an excellent session. I found the info about the 'chimp mind' or our amygdala hijacking our emotions and ability to make decisions, very useful"
Mariana Vieira da Rocha
Mariana, a Volunteer Manager originally from Portugal, felt confused about her career direction and isolated due to the COVID situation being away from her family and friends. Having experienced depression before, Mariana wanted to find a proactive path through this pandemic and gain a renewed sense of motivation for her role. As a result of being on the programme she gained clarity, a sense of community, and healthy coping mechanisms.
Raleigh for Change.

The Art/Science to Thrive Amidst Uncertainty
We delivered The Art/Science to Thrive Amidst Uncertainty Mini-course virtually as an immediate response to the COVID situation. The course provided practical techniques on how to cope amidst uncertainty, push pass internal barriers, and support personal well-being.
So far, I’ve felt like I’ve been sleepwalking through my career and I lost who I was. I’m on a journey to find out what is important to me. The course with Jay was brilliant!!! It was in bitesize challenges which each time pushed me slightly out of my comfort zone but also feel supported and energised. Her style is to provide information and context to each challenge and take you through a journey.
I have recently took a short 3 week course The Art/Science to Thrive Amidst Uncertainty and found it incredibly insightful and useful. Jay's course stood out from other coaching experiences by being extremely well based on science and yet so warm and personal at the same time! Jay's support was constant, attentive and incredibly professional throughout. Cannot recommend enough.
