Experience in one to one coaching
Having first qualified as a nurse and subsequently as a midwife, Lisa has worked in a diverse range of clinical settings including general hospitals, healthcare Centres of Excellence, street clinics in Calcutta, private hospitals in London, the world-renowned Royal Marsden Clinic and GP Practices in Dublin. A move to the administrative side of healthcare brought her into managerial roles in private clinics and practices, and the non-profit sector where she supported, mentored and coached rotating Board Members into their new roles and responsibilities.
Since qualifying as a coach, Lisa has provided life and leadership coaching to healthcare professionals, managers, parents and individuals. With years of experience in guiding patients through healthcare challenges and crises, as well as steering Board Members through times of change in the charities sector, Lisa also draws on her deep knowledge of human physiology, and how physical and mental health is woven into every aspect of our personal and working lives. This combination enables her to help her clients recognise and manage stress, make their health and wellbeing the cornerstone of every aspect of their lives, ground themselves and their leadership practices in their core values, reacquaint themselves with their life purpose, reawaken their love for their work, and implement meaningful changes that will last long after the coaching process has ended. She has a special interest in health literacy and is a regular contributor to nursing and medical journals, websites and blogs, writing about new approaches and technology that enhance health literacy and inspire the motivation that’s needed to self-manage one’s health.
Her Leadership Development Coaching Programme for Nurses and Midwives has been accredited for 10 CEUs from the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland and she co-facilitates peer group supervision sessions with coach colleagues. Lisa is also Programme Manager for Grace Consulting.
