Experience in one to one coaching
I have been coaching Principals through CSL since the inception of the scheme. Partnership and authenticity are the hallmarks of my coaching style. I seek to create an empowering space where you determine the direction of your growth and set your own level of challenge. I adopt a systemic view, helping you to see the bigger picture, recognising how you are impacted by, and impact on, those around you and how to build greater consensus and influence. I use appreciative enquiry, identifying what is already working, what can be improved and what insights can be discovered.
Drawing on my extensive experience in the field of embodied practices and energy psychology, I will support you to connect to a deep sense of purpose. Using simple somatic exercises you will gain greater awareness, develop alignment with your own values and discover how to handle internal and external resistance. Through practices of mindfulness you can increase your capacity for remaining centred and resourceful in challenging situations.
My background before becoming a coach was in the field of education, initially administrative roles in UCC, subsequently secondary school and language schools and eventually providing language and communication training to organizations.
As a Coach I work within Ireland and internationally. My client work is predominantly 1-1 and I also work with small and large groups, running webinars on Resilience, Executive Presence and Impact, Leader’s Use of Self as Instrument. I have run programmes in Embodied Leadership in Spain, Dubai, Sweden and Lithuania in recent years. Clients include CEOs, Entrepreneurs, Leaders in the Irish University Sector, Private and Semi State bodies, Executives in Global Organizations, Teachers, Senior Health Executives, Leaders in the field of Midwifery, Business Owners, Trainers, Consultants and Senior Executive Coaches in the U.S., Europe, Scandinavia and UAE
