Experience in one to one coaching

Hannah has been a practicing executive coach since 2001; when she transitioned from being a Partner in a major Dublin law firm practicing in the area of dispute resolution, to focus on ‘the people side’ of the firm’s business. In her role, she led out the development and integration of initiatives, approaches and strategies to actively encourage talent, skills and practice group team thinking and performance.

As an independent executive coach, mentor, facilitator and practicing mediator since 2008; Hannah has a particular interest in listening well to understand situations for leaders in their roles and situational context. Her aim is always to encourage and facilitate a leader’s best independent thinking; in a manner that creates possibilities for progress, and learning. Hannah’s team approach also puts the creation of possibilities at the centre - with a focus on relationships, respecting and utilising difference and communicating effectively for best outcomes – and progress.

In her work with individuals and teams across a range of industry sectors, Hannah has built a reputation for creating connection and understanding with her clients quickly, to enable them to best position their own strengths and potential. She encourages her clients to develop their own capability to think creatively, to listen deeply to generate possibilities and to trust the combination effect of collective thinking – and activities.

Hannah’s coaching style is warm, realistic and practical. She partners with her clients to enable a shared understanding of the human responses to change that present, in both thinking and behaviours. Once understanding is created – ideas and fresh thinking emerge.

Hannah’s clients range across professional services; legal, financial and consulting, healthcare, the not for profit and creative arts sectors. She is very much looking forward to learning about the education sector and contributing, in service of the development of leadership and team potential.
