My Coaching Story

"A lover of people and helping them find their inner strengths and abilities."


An Executive Coach, I work with people to bring out and sharpen their abilities in business and career.  Working closely with them to assess how they perform on a daily basis, and with them putting in place strategies to improve and realise potential they have not yet tapped into, by building their inner capacity and resilience to be effective within this increasingly complex world.


Often people feel stuck or overwhelmed and are not sure what to do or which way to go and that's where I come in - through the power of coaching I help them manage change and challenge in their career and personal life.


I work with them to figure out exactly where they are, where they want to be, and how they're going to get there..........moving them from 'stuck' to 'enabled' with the ability to lead as fulfilled a life as possible, realising their true potential and enjoying life and work in the process.


The results are greater self-belief, improved confidence, better work performance, the knowledge that you can face challenge and work through it, and much more.


I use all my skills and my own quirky personality to help clients achieve this, and they can be guaranteed to have me in their corner, working with and for them, in a supportive and confidential relationship.


I have a Diploma in Business, Executive and Personal  Coaching  (Coach Institute of Ireland), I am a Fetac Accredited Trainer  and am certified in the use of the Emotional Intelligence EQ-I 2.0  and Thomas DISC PPA assessments, also a certified practitioner of NLP. My background is in business with over 30 years experience in management, purchasing, sales, customer service and planning. I am a Fellow of the Institute of Leadership & Management, London, and a Full Member of the Association of Coaching.


I am also an Executive Coach with Ignite Executive Coaching in Galway www.ignitecoach.com


This all makes me sound very serious which is far from the truth. I adore life and love to laugh. I see the best in people even when they cannot.


I love dogs and the great outdoors, good food with wonderful people, and I'm married to a wonderful guy - and boy have we been on a journey together. Health and vitality is a must, and if I have to own up to a failing........I can be over-enthusiastic which wears me out sometimes, but then we are all a work in progress......!
