Based in Anglesey, North Wales, I work with individuals and organisations to enable them to identify their goals; achieve their best performance and live their best life. I am a warm, incisive and direct coach and I'm at ease working with leadership challenges and personal transformation.
During a successful career in the cultural and arts sector I became convinced of the effectiveness of coaching through my work managing a team of employees and freelancers and producing artists. I honed my skills over 17 years leading organisations and people through change.
I offer coaching across North Wales in person, or via zoom an online video service or the telephone.
If you haven't been coached before its a process that involves me questioning and reflecting back your words, I will be using techniques to help you gain clarity about your goals and to identify the best routes to achieving them. Although it sounds simple it can be totally transformative. Everything you tell a coach is totally confidential and I work from a non judgemental place which can feel light, refreshing and safe.
If you feel ready to make some changes or to gain some clarity if you are feeling 'stuck' do get in touch.
“Mairead is a brilliant coach. She helped me refocus my priorities in ways that were so positive and empowering - challenging but always supportive and encouraging, with a clarity of purpose that was renewing and energising. She gave me the confidence to change direction, reshape that perennially difficult work/life balance in a way that felt both aspirational and achievable. I am still reaping the benefits of her sessions several years on, and without her support I don't believe I would have had the courage to take some difficult but rewarding decisions. I find myself inwardly thanking her again and again."
Writer and Producer.
'Having reached turning points in my career and personal life, Mairead's coaching sessions enabled me to recognise repetitive behaviour patterns that have categorised the past few years. I look forward to the sessions, and have made significant changes for the better since I started coaching. I feel refreshed and invigorated. It's been like giving my mind a very thorough spring clean!.
