About me

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to read my profile. 

Welcome to Coaching with Deirdre. Personal and professional coaching to clients in a safe and positive space.

My mission is to to help you achieve your own personal, financial and professional satisfaction.  Working alongside me, will  help you explore what is stopping you from achieving your full potential.  Once the barriers and the blockages are identified, we can use tried and tested tools and techniques, making it possible for you to reach personal, financial and professional success.  I can also integrate particular techniques  including meditation and visualisation into our programme. 

All of my coaching starts with a complimentary discovery conversation. Together we work in a client centred way to  explore your motivation for coaching, what you wish to achieve and how we can work together. Because I believe every person is unique, our sessions  will be bespoke to you.

Achieving your goal, enabling you to grow and improve your life, is my purpose.  I want you to visibly see and physically feel the difference that coaching with me, will have on you. 

Feedback and evaluation help us to review whether we are meeting your need and delivering results. As part of our contracting we will agree how to measure the impact of coaching for you.  We will review mid-way and and at the end of our contract. 

I offer the following coaching programmes: 

RESET- one on one coaching, for 90 minutes, typically 4 - 6 sessions. Our sessions are set around client need. For example, you may have a goal you want to achieve which needs planning and transition time, or you may face a specific challenge that needs only 2 - 3 sessions. In partnership we decide on the programme and schedule which suits you best. 

LeadHer - UK& Ireland 

I am excited to offer this 12 week one on one coaching and training programme specifically for women.  Sessions last 1 hour and are typically weekly, however flexibility is key to all of my programmes so a schedule that suits you is always available.   

There are so many women who are dissatisfied with  the role or career that they are in.  Statistics show that some groups of women are less happy than they were 40 years, and women on average are more likely to suffer job stress and burnout than men. If you recognise this then LeadHer UK&Ireland is for you.   We will work with 5 Women's Powertypes™  feminine and strong to discover your  own authentic power. By recognising and exploring masculine and feminine energy and soft power, we will build a life changing programme that gives you the confidence  and resilience to trust your own thoughts and beliefs. 

Coaching with Deirdre is available  In Person, Online or by Telephone.  

Coaching Outdoors 

I offer every client the experience of coaching outdoors if they wish.  Outdoor coaching is a unique experience providing  new perspectives for exploring thoughts, feelings and challenges.   I live in county Down, Northern Ireland, clients who book for In person coaching will have the choice of a number of risk assessed locations to choose from.  If clients book online or by telephone sessions, we can discuss how they can experience outdoor coaching in a location that suits and is near them e.g. their own outdoor space or park.

Further information

This is what some of my clients have said about working with me:

Deirdre is very approachable, it felt easy/ comfortable talking to her. Before coaching I don’t think I realised how much was weighing over me. Coaching with Deirdre definitely helped me let go of things I didn’t realise I was carrying, and made me realise what was holding me back from moving forwards.  Vicky, Artist 

Deirdre was excellent. She listened really carefully and encouraged me to deepen my thinking. She was supportive and encouraging. Noelle, Programme Manager in Higher Education. 

Coaching with Deirdre helped me to keep an awareness of vision and not just everyday fire-fighting.  James, Senior Lecturer

The 12 week programme continues its positive impact. I continually reflect on what motivates me. What I want to change and how I can practically achieve it. Liz, Art Therapist

I am more self–aware personally and professionally. Working with Deirdre has enabled me to develop a toolbox to overcome insecurities, concerns and worries.  Ellen, Final Year student.
