Experience in one to one coaching (Max. 300 words)

I have been a coach practitioner exclusively within the Education sector in N. Ireland since 2010, responsible for the implementation of coaching and mentoring provision within professional learning programmes for aspiring head teachers and first time Principals. As well as providing training courses in coaching skills for school Principals and their senior leaders I have also coached individual Principals from all phases and other senior leaders within schools and the Education bodies as well as Principals who act as Mentor/Coaches to Principals and trainee head teachers. In doing so I have accrued approximately 500 hours of individual coaching hours. I would describe myself as a leadership coach with the main influences on my coaching coming from the fields of humanistic psychology and adult learning.
