Experience in One-To-One Coaching

My coaching experience has primarily been within and across the wider education sector.  Consequently, this has included coaching principals, senior leaders, middle leaders and class teachers within nursery, primary and post-primary schools as well as more recently within a further education college.  In addition, I have coached leaders and managers within the business and private sector.

Training and Approaches

As a result of my advanced training in executive coaching at master’s level and my Level 7 qualification for coaching leaders and managers coupled with my coaching experiences, I am able to draw upon the necessary coaching skills, strategies and approaches needed to meet the needs of the individual being coached. 

These strategies, techniques and approaches are drawn from a wide variety of theoretical and research-based coaching methods enabling the coaching process to become a cycle whereby the person being coached can reflect, analyse and determine desired outcomes and the action needed to achieve these.  Most particularly the coaching process facilitates learning, problem-solving, decision making, abilities to manage change and make choices as well as promoting personal growth. 

The coaching I employ is always grounded upon respect, concern, compassion and understanding with a desire to support and help the person being coached. My coaching style ensures open and trusting relationships and partnerships are established where both parties feel safe, secure and trust one another.

In particular, I hold a belief that everyone has the desire and ability to problem solve for themselves and that coaching is a tool to facilitate this. I therefore promote a belief in the client’s own abilities to problem solve, develop and achieve their work-related outcomes through the coaching process.

Finally coaching is transformational and powerful with tremendous benefits to the person being coached.   Owing to my high-level coaching qualifications, professional background coupled with my personal qualities I believe I am able to facilitate excellent, beneficial and transformational coaching.
