Career and Life Coaching


careerwinner2015What do I do as Coach?
As a Career, Business and Life Coaching specialist, I work with people to enable them to make effective decisions in their work or personal lives. Effective decisions are made when one has increased clarity and a deep understanding around all the factors that will influence that decision.

Coaching is of value because the ‘thinking’, ‘decisions’ and ‘doings’ are all the work of the client and the client only does what they feel is needed and appropriate to them at that particular time in their life.

My  style of coaching is to create trust which allows the client to work on deep and sensitive issues. Observers and clients have described this as being an ‘emotionally intelligent’ coach. Clients have described my work with them as empowering, grounding, creative and compassionate.  Statements such as ‘unblocking inner obstacles, ‘nurturing’ and ‘encouraging’ are regularly made by clients.

Clients have also described my work as challenging, thought provoking, empathetic, future focused and adaptable.  I use creative methodologies to explore thinking and beliefs and approach clients with the steadfast belief that they are capable and resourceful people with the ability to obtain clarity on their next step.  I aim to provide a secure, structured and safe coaching experience to allow this to happen.

As an accredited coach I am a member of the International Coaching Federation and am bound by its code of ethics.

I work with professionals who wish to increase their capacity and  effectiveness as Leaders and Managers,  clients experiencing Career Change and Transition as well as clients preparing for interview and job selection, focusing on the areas of personal strengths, body language and impact.

In December 2015 I was awarded ‘Career Coach of the Year’ at the ICF Irish Chapter Coaching Awards for my work with clients on the LIT/SECAD Time to Change Programme

I offer coaching to clients via Skype which allows the client to work effectively and reduce the need for travel and associated downtime.  These coaching sessions take place at prearranged times to suit the client and are also available to overseas clients.  Each session consists of a one hour session and I am currently offering a 4 session programme for 400 euro / 475 dollars.  If you wish to avail of this or to discuss it in more detail,  please email  info@purecoach.ie and we can arrange a time that suits.  You will need a Skype account and a good internet connection.

Coaching sessions by Skype require that the client is in a quiet area, undisturbed by others.  Skype or ‘remote’ coaching is a very effective way to experience coaching and allows for deep and meaningful engagement. Payment is in advance via PayPal.
