I am one of Ireland’s first and most experienced coaches, coach mentors and Supervisor with over 13 years full-time in the profession since I qualified with the LBCAI in Ireland and Coachville, USA in 2001. I specialise in executive transition and career management: from high potential career development and stepping into new roles through to mid-life career change, breaking the glass ceiling and retirement planning. I have graduated as a supervisor for coaches in Advanced Supervision from the University of Middlesex.
I have two core passions that define my professional life
- Passion for helping people “move from great to brilliant” – whatever your background, and from powerlessness to powerfulness – complemented by a jargon-free, down to earth approach.
- Passion for the profession of coaching – as the founder of the Coach Centre in Dublin and co-founder of the Life and Business Coaches Association of Ireland, I have been responsible for mentoring and training many of Ireland’s best coaches and positively impacting the careers and businesses of hundreds of individuals through coaching.
