Helping you develop your skills
Main services provided include:
I work with organisations in the private, public and charity sectors. I also work with private individuals. You can read more about my clients and what they say about working with me here.
I develop and deliver training courses on the topics of people management and leadership, interview skills, soft skills (including presentation skills, problem solving and communications) and training (training other trainers). I receive consistently high ratings from participants and am regularly asked to re-deliver courses. Client feedback about training frequently mentions the words "experienced", "informative", "practical", "engaging" and "fun".
I have a successful track record in coaching clients to success at interviews, helping them to get their desired promotion or job. I coach candidates and help them complete application forms, CVs and prepare for interview. I have extensive experience as an external interview board member and am involved in both shortlisting and interviewing on behalf of several public sector organisations. I have trained hundreds of interview board members in the civil service, local authorities and public sector agencies. I also deliver training courses to public sector candidates in interview preparation and writing application forms.
I also coach managers at all levels in both public and private sector organisations. Topics addressed include clarifying career goals, improving team motivation, adapting to a new level of management, exploring leadership strengths, performance management, providing feedback, networking and managing relationships. I use psychometrics and 360 feedback to support the coaching process when appropriate.
I have a wide range of business experience having worked in management, sales, operations, consulting, technical and communications roles before re-training as a psychologist and starting my own business in 2008. My management experience includes five years on the senior management team of Microsoft Ireland. My previous consulting and training experience includes working for organisations internationally and in Ireland on behalf of IBM and Microsoft.
I have a Masters in Organisational (or Business) Psychology and am accredited to use a range of Psychometrics, including the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, TalentQ, Strengthscope, 15FQ+ and Emotional Intelligence (EQ-i 2.0/EQ 360). I am a member of the Psychological Society of Ireland (including their Division of Work & Organisational Psychology and the Coaching Psychology Group) and a member of CIPD.
