My approach

I offer one-on-one career coaching sessions, either in person or by video call. Every client is unique, and every client's situation is unique.

I tailor my approach to career coaching, usually starting with a chemistry session, and then using an appropriate framework and guidance.

I typically work with clients who face:

  • Transitions from university to work,

  • Career changes,

  • Mid-life exploration.

My Story

WhatsApp Image 2023-07-17 at 17.20.05.jpeg

My early industry experience includes working in the electronics and

pharmaceutical sectors in various supply chain roles. Having graduated

with a Master’s degree in economics in 2000, I decided to return to full-time

education and completed a PhD in 2011 (UCD) on career mentoring in multinationals versus SMEs.  


Throughout my subsequent academic career, initially at Dublin City University (DCU) and currently at University College Cork (UCC), I have continued to research and publish on career development, with a particular interest in project management careers. I regularly work with large and medium-sized companies, both through training and research. I have an in-depth understanding of contemporary careers and dynamics. I have successfully guided many people through career transitions over the last 10 years.

What is coaching?

Coaching is person-centred, meaning the client is more than the situation they present with, and that to be useful, coaching adapts to the needs of the client.

How does coaching work?

Coaching is a dialogic process that involves discovering a path or route to move the client forward. Typically, I work with clients who face a major career transition, using various tool sets that best meet the needs of the client.
