Business Coaching is ideal for people who are looking to start a business, develop a business or feel more confident about the world of self-employment. As an entrepreneur and business owner with over 10 years’ experience supporting people to start and grow profitable businesses, Denise fully understands the challenges (and rewards) of running a business. Plus, she is happy to share her mistakes so you don’t make them too!

Business Coaching is ideal for:


  • Aspiring entrepreneurs with a business idea
  • Individuals in pre and early stage start up
  • Business owners facing a challenge
  • Business owners with an important decision to make
  • Individuals going through a career transition who are curious about the world of self-employment
  • Coaches wanting to set up their own coaching business


Business Coaching can take place face-to-face in a mutually agreed location, delivered by telephone or virtually by Facetime, Skype or Zoom.

What is Business Coaching for?

Business Coaching can help you to:


  • Develop your business idea
  • Get you and your business up and running
  • Find solutions to your current business challenges
  • Take your business to the next level
  • Build your confidence and unlock your leadership potential as a business owner

When does Business Coaching happen?

Business Coaching is available as a three- and six-month package.


The first session is a 90-minute Coaching Discovery session. It is used to establish objectives, design a way you will work together with Denise and define what success looks like. Typically, the 90-minute Business Coaching sessions will then take place every 4 to 6 weeks.

Why is Business Coaching needed?

Whether you are thinking of starting a business, building a start-up business or own an established business, spending time formulating a business plan is crucial to your success.


As your business continues to evolve, the insight and perspective offered by a Business Coach like Denise can help you to:


  • Set exciting goals for you and your business
  • Create a realistic plan of action for all aspects of your business
  • Get clear on your priorities and move forward into action
  • Create accountability and commitment
  • Build your confidence and self-belief
  • Reflect and learn by offering an objective sounding board
  • Keep sight of the bigger picture
  • Develop leadership skills fitting for a business owner
  • Manage your time effectively

How does Business Coaching work?

There are two key elements when it comes to starting a business. The first is what you need to do. The second is who you need to be.


The do-ing

These are the practical parts of starting and developing the business. They include business planning, formulating creative marketing techniques, getting clear on who your customer is and building the right network around you.


The be-ing

Developing your mindset to think and behaviour like a business owner is essential to success. Exploring your relationship with risk and uncertainty, building confidence, resilience and influencing are all leadership skills that can be developed to ensure that you are the best you can possibly be.


You will:

  • Gain clarity on your goals and how to achieve them
  • Identify your strengths and areas you can improve on to achieve your goals
  • Build your confidence
  • Feel able to embrace change and new challenges
  • Receive support when the going gets tough

    Yes, I would like to receive coaching news, advice and guidance from Denise in my inbox.


    Denise is an amazing coach who has gained my total respect and trust. I tried for a long time to find a coach that challenged me professionally and whom I trusted to challenge and coach me personally. Denise is intuitive and creative in her coaching and pushes me in a way that no other professional has done before. I admire and respect her ability to tune in to the issues in hand and to apply the right amount of questioning and support to enable me to find answers that address today’s challenges. I highly recommend Denise.

    Lesley Roberts, Director of LR Consultancy Ltd

    I have experienced Denise’s coaching and training, at a one to one session, and also a formal training session at Mersey Maritime Ltd. As well as incisive coaching expertise, Denise provides very practical tools for personal development, which proved invaluable to me during a time of significant career transition. I have one of Denise’s strategic planning techniques drawn on my office noticeboard, and use it regularly. Denise has a unique and highly effective approach. No jargon. No loud, over-demonstrative presentations. Just solid and insightful training and coaching.

    Rachel Mulhearn, Director of Rachel Mulhearn Associates Ltd

    Coaching supported me through a career change. I now work for a much bigger company in a completely different sector and I am receiving some great feedback. The scope of the role is bigger, the salary is bigger, the package is better and my whole standard of living has improved. 

    Tracey, Head of Organisational Development

    The biggest benefit of coaching to me professionally was the ability to prioritise the strategic and operational goals needed to take our charity forwards and to bring coaching in to help others. We have now started to roll out coaching to everyone within the organisation. 

    Alasdair Jackson, Director at Recycling Lives

    Denise helped me to take my business to the next level. Anybody wishing to develop themselves should really take the time to speak with Denise. She is highly inspirational, immensely personable and has the skills and attitude to make a substantial difference to her clients.

    Martin Craven, Managing Partner Crestcom International

    Working with Denise has helped me to see how much I have achieved in my role and how much Irish Community Care have grown in my time there. But I have also realised that there is still more work that I can do, so it reaffirmed my passion for my job and allowed me to refocus my energy. I also understand myself so much better now. Denise has helped me to reaffirm my self-confidence. I can recognise that I have strong leadership skills and a good vision where I couldn’t before.
