Getting Unstuck 

Returning to work after a career break?

Thinking about your next steps?

Facing some challenges in the year ahead?

Feeling a bit stuck?... Coaching may help

We all get a little stuck and coaching can help at all stages of your career, with immediate challenges, and with big life goals. With me as your coach, we work on a 1-1 basis to help you get unstuck and on track.

What is coaching?

Coaching is supported personal reflection and development. You set the goals, you decide what you want to achieve and how to get there.


These are some of the things coaching can help with:​

  • Building confidence

  • Setting boundaries

  • Getting a project or job started

  • Reflecting on career progress


Am I the right coach for you?

Finding the right coach is important – you need to find someone you can trust and be open with. I want to work with cultural leaders to help them find their confidence, vision and path. I like to challenge, use creativity and bring fun to sessions. I may use running analogies but I promise I won't make you run - unless you want to.

Please have a look below at some things people have said about working with me as a coach.


To find out if we can work well together, we have an initial, no obligation chat before we confirm a series of coaching sessions.


What happens in a coaching series?

Once we’ve decided to work together, I will send you a questionnaire in advance of our first coaching session.


The first session will be 75mins long and will focus on establishing what goals you want to achieve through the coaching series, and how we will work together. I will then send your agreed coaching goals in a simple contract. Follow-on sessions will last 60mins and the final session will be 75mins. I suggest at least four sessions in a series, one every 3-4 weeks.


I offer fully flexible contracts so if you feel it’s not working for you at any stage you can stop.


Is it expensive?

Investing in yourself is always a good choice and can often be funded by an employer or through grants. Please get in touch for details.


If you need consultancy rather than coaching then we can discuss that based on what you need; I have different rates.


For anyone earning national average wage or less (£30,800) paying directly (not through an organisation) I offer coaching sessions on a pay as you can basis. If cost is a barrier, please contact me to discuss and I will see what is possible.



It was such a positive experience! Reflecting on my life is something that I generally don't take the time to do. We worked on some small work-related stuff, but also some big potentially life-changing stuff. I'm getting my pensions in order, booking that adventurous holiday and even beginning to kick-start my non-existent love life! I achieved huge amounts in just 6 sessions.
I was able to speak openly and honestly in a safe space. I had time to reflect on the conversation after each session and as a result of the programme, I believe my perspective has changed for the better.
Mairead is a fantastic coach - positive, friendly, and felt like we were in the room together although it was entirely remote. Mairead challenged me to think for myself and celebrate my achievements, something we don't get to do in our fast-paced daily lives. I would recommend Mairead's coaching to anyone at a point of change in their life.
