- It enables people to refocus and take a critical look at their approaches and style at work
- It helps people identify barriers that are preventing them from being more effective in their jobs
- It helps people commit to new performance goals
- It gives people someone to listen/talk to without judgement
- It helps to promote individual self-awareness and self-management
- It offers a flexible and tailored approach to self-development
- It demands individual responsibility for performance and development
I started coaching in northern Italy after I had moved there in 2009 to teach English - I was working on a one-to-one basis with CEO's and senior management in a variety of top international companies (e.g. Sabaf Spa, Pfizer, UBI Banca) and my initial language-focused role developed naturally into performance related coaching support.
When I returned to Northern Ireland in 2012, I completed a diploma in performance coaching with NLP and since then have coached and supported a huge variety of individuals to achieve success and move forward in their personal and professional lives.
I offer one-to-one confidential coaching sessions and group sessions in a personal as well as an organisational context.
