Experience in one to one coaching


I have been privileged to be the trusted confidante, support and executive coach, to leaders from all walks of life, for around 18 years. Originally from Belfast, I lived and worked in London and Scotland, in the field of leadership development and skills training, for many years, before returning to Ireland a few years ago, and heading up a coaching business here. I feel very fortunate to live in west Cork, and enjoy coaching managers and leaders across Ireland and the UK, and indeed, further afield via the use of skype and other virtual technologies.
I started coaching in the late 1990’s when I worked as an organisational psychologist in the Scottish Prison Service. Since then, coaching clients have included CEO’s, Directors, and leaders in different fields from SME’s to global corporations, public sector and not-for-profit. I have some consulting/training experience with Teachers and School Principals.
Client Examples:
• Universities e.g. Queens University Belfast, and the University of Glasgow
• Government, Semi-States and Agencies e.g. Ervia, various Health Services and Social Work Services, National Museums of Scotland, UK Foreign Office, Scottish Government
• Local Government e.g. N Ayrshire, City of Armagh
• Energy: e.g. SSE Airtricity, EirGrid, Wood Group
• Technology: e.g. Wolfson Microelectronics

I receive feedback, that I am a great listener, and that I create a very safe space for leaders to share what is truly troubling them. I believe that humour and some levity is important in coaching! I understand the pressures on managers and leaders in today’s organisations, and help them make sense of competing priorities, and seemingly unsolvable, intractable problems. I work a lot with the following topics:
• Leading change
• Resilience as a leader/coping with stress
• Authentic leadership and Presence
• Managing people and leading teams
• Conflict and difficult conversations
• Emotional Intelligence and understanding different personality types
