Colum - Accountant – Co Clare
Connie’s coaching has been a real help to me during a time of major transition in my career. I was drawn to Connie because of her authentic values and extensive experience of multi-national industry. She helped me make redefine my priorities in a thought provoking and non-judgemental manner, creating the space to help me get a clearer sense of what I want to do.
As a director of strategy working in the pharmaceutical industry and based in the US I found my journey with Connie to be very rewarding. Connie has a great style in facilitating self-exploration of challenges to get to an answer on your own. Her structured approach and the trust she builds from the start is very effective. Connie supported me with a number of challenging topics and gave me the clarity and confidence to overcome them. I would highly recommend Connie for those looking to grow and develop in their careers.

I had three one-hour sessions with Connie and I found each and every one tremendously valuable. I would give Connie 5 Stars! Having never engaged with a professional coach in the past I was not sure what to expect. I had recently started a new role in a new industry and was finding it difficult to even give of my time. Having started a new role my head was swimming. The session allowed me the time and space to declutter, to think, to prioritise and to begin to see ahead. During our further sessions we looked at personality traits. It was very interesting to complete the exercise and reflect of the type of persona I had, how that influenced my day to day activities and how other personality traits, if adopted, could add real value to my career. Again, a worthwhile exercise, reflecting on persona, applying it to business and building a personal brand. We rounded off our sessions by going back over what we had achieved- taking what I had learned about myself, my business style, my objectives and then projecting this into the future. There are lots of analogies – “Seeing the wood for the trees”, “The fog clearing” etc but they are all appropriate. I came away with a clearer understanding of myself, of how I work, how I interact with others, where I want to be and how to get there. My sessions gave me time to really think, I forgot about the pressing deadlines, the emails. I recommend it. Spend the time with Connie and then take what you have learned to focus on you for a while.

Connie very kindly worked with some of our Medical Representative Institute members who fed back very positively on their coaching sessions. They were grateful to have the opportunity to become aware of their strengths, working styles and thinking and to take time to declutter and prioritise to look from current situations to looking more clearly ahead.
It was easy to establish a relationship with Connie. Connie created a lovely safe environment for me to be myself and explore my situation. Connie was professional at all times and quickly thought of a tool to use that would help me. It was the first time using the tool virtually and Connie did so with confidence and the tool proved to be extremely valuable. i am very happy with the outcome I achieved through my coaching sessions.
Connie has coached me on a few occasions with a view to processing thoughts and unlocking feelings about issues close to me these last few months, but also to build a greater sense of awareness leading to a more rounded version of myself. Connie has an aura of calm and ease about her which naturally facilitated this process. She has wonderful energy and a great ability to communicate.

Over the past decade, the field of Neuroscience has confirmed we have complex, adaptive and functional neural networks - or “brains”- in our heart and gut. In conjunction with our head brain, these multiple brains exhibit intelligences and wisdom. This theory has already been mooted by many ancient philosophers. How our multiple brains communicate and operate with each other is vital for generating wiser decision-making as we align our compassionate, creative and courageous intelligences. Tapping into these multiple “brains” is called mBraining and it is a powerful process of aligning and integrating your multiple brains for specific outcomes.
mBIT (multiple Brian Integration Techniques) is a suite of practical techniques for communicating with, aligning and harnessing the intelligence of your multiple intelligences.
As a Certified mBIT Coach I can work with you to integrate your head-based knowledge with heart- felt knowledge and deep intuitions, getting to a place of calm alertness where we can discover clarity and wisdom in all aspects of life.“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift” – Albert Einstein
