“I highly recommend coaching with Fay. I knew I wanted to make changes to my job but wasn't sure where to start or even what exactly to change. The coaching process itself helped me clarify my priorities and then start to think about how to achieve them. Fay is very experienced at what she does and has a reassuring, calm, reflective style.”

Orla, Practice Manager, Children's Services

“I had career advise and interview preparation with Fay which was fantastic. Fay helped me to understand interview strategies in more detail and equipped me with the tool kit to be able to answer any question by following a particular model. She gave me confidence in my abilities to deliver a good interview.

I now have a new role and feel equipped to tackle my next promotion interview when it arises. I will certainly return for advise and guidance again.

A very knowledgeable lady who connected with me well and took time to understanding my background and where I want to go in order to consult with me thoroughly.”

Georgie, Recruitment Adviser
