About me

For me, as a Life and Leadership Coach, there is nothing more powerful than seeing someone discover that they can do it, then start to live life differently and feel so fulfilled as a result.  Life is simply to short not to live it authentically and be true to yourself, your values and your dreams.  In looking at life coaching, if any of these questions below echo some of the things you have been thinking about, coaching is definitely for you.

  • Achieve something important to you trying new approaches?

  • Adapt to a major life event or change and look forward again feeling resilient?

  • Feel excited to explore different directions in your life or work without judgement?

  • Tame self-limiting thoughts, increase confidence and start feeling true to yourself?

I am here to work with you and let's make a meaningful difference. People are innately and fantastically resourceful and with an openness to coaching, anyone can achieve real and positive change. My aim is that when we complete our coaching you will feel excited, ready, resilient and revitalised for moving forward!  If that sounds like where you want to be, get in touch, I would love to hear from you!

See what other clients have thought about their coaching experience with me in FutureSpark Coaching:

'Before attending a series of coaching sessions with Maire, I felt dissatisfied with where I was in my life, and in my career. I am so glad I decided to make the investment in the sessions because in a short time, and through Maire's expert coaching, I began to realise why I had gotten into a pattern of negative thinking and self-doubt. This led to insecurities about changing jobs and progressing in my career. I have started the new year with a new outlook and positive commitment to changing myself for the better. Thank you Maire for enabling me to see things in a brand new light!'

'I am truly grateful to Maire for the coaching sessions we had. Maire provided a confidential and constructive space for me to talk through the challenges I was facing. She was able to help me identify that there were opportunities in these challenges. I always came out of each one of our sessions feeling that I had acquired practical tools for moving forward in my profession and achieving my goals. She is smart, wise, attentive and genuine. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Maire to anyone who wants coaching.'

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified life, business and executive coach trained by the Coach Institute of Ireland.  I am a member of the Association for Coaching. I hold a MSc in Development Management and a Certificate in Advanced Group Facilitation Skills.  I am an avid life-long learner and totally committed to continued professional development.

I savour working with a wide range of individual clients in life coaching and organisations (business, non-profit and public sector) for leadership development. I also work with groups and agencies using coaching, positive psychology and strengths based approaches to develop projects, co-design services and new ways of engaging with communities.

I have loved the diversity of my professional life to date working as a CEO and in other senior leadership roles in the fields of mental health, international humanitarian development, age sector, economic regeneration and employability. 

Other areas of coaching I deal with



I offer everyone a free, short introductory meeting where we can talk about you and coaching.  In our introductory meeting, we will look at what you want coaching to focus on and how I work so that you can be sure that it's right for you. From there, we can plan coaching sessions to suit you. I provide a discount for four or more sessions booked to ensure advance coaching availability.

Other workshop and coaching packages

  • Emerging Leaders is a six-session one-to-one coaching package.

  • Motivational Spark Workshops are provided for full-day and half-day session rates.

  • Group coaching session packages are structured according to client requirements (duration etc.)

Further information

I work across Northern Ireland and ROI.  One-to-coaching can be provided by face-to-face meetings, telephone or Skype.  I work to suit your schedule so coaching hours can be very flexible.

One of the most fulfilling things for me is encouraging the personal and professional development of others. I believe we can never cease to surprise ourselves in what we can achieve.  That's why FutureSpark Coaching is here!
