Career Coaching can help if you are looking for purpose, motivation or fulfilment at work or in your career. Denise has over 15 years’ corporate experience and another 10 years’ experience as a Professional Certified Coach. Her clients have clients left jobs, found new ones, started businesses and grown businesses. They have been promoted, survived redundancy, improved their working relationships and feel more skilled at working strategically.

Who is Career Coaching for?

Career Coaching is ideal for people who:


  • Reached a crossroads in their career
  • Feeling “stuck” or unfulfilled in their current role
  • Disappointed that they aren’t where they hoped they would be professionally
  • Hate their job and need an escape plan


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

What is Career Coaching for?

Career Coaching can help you to:


  • Gain a different perspective on your career options
  • Align your vision with your values to help you make decisions that fulfil you
  • Create a plan to help you get a new job or change your career direction
  • Feel like you are in control of your career and choices
  • Gain clarity on your transferable skills and strengths
  • Remain calm and be the best you can at interview
  • Feel more confident about career advancement in your current organisation


The sessions will help you to understand more about yourself, who you are and what is important to you. It is a space which allows for new ways of thinking and creates options and possibilities to help you improve your situation or simply appreciate what you have.

When does Career Coaching happen?

Career Coaching is available as a three or six-month package.


The first session is a 90-minute Coaching Discovery session and is used for establishing objectives, designing a way to work together and defining what success will look like for you.


All following sessions are 60-minutes long. The frequency of sessions is agreed during the Coaching Discovery but you should be able to commit to a minimum of one session per month. This enables the coaching to gather some momentum and allows the coaching relationship to develop and be powerful. So if the going gets tough, as it sometimes does, you stay working together through to the other side.


On completion, you and Denise will review where you are and look at the options that will serve you best going forward. “Top Up” Coaching sessions, which keep you moving forward, are available for individuals who have completed a three or six-month coaching programme.

Why is Career Coaching needed?

In the sports world, every athlete has a coach. The athlete has the skill and fitness level to achieve their goals but needs some extra guidance from a coach to help them stay on the right path and perform at their best. Denise plays the same role for people:


  • Supporting you to get clear on what you really want from your career
  • Encouraging and motivating you to accomplish your professional goals
  • Offering a different perspective to help you get clarity
  • Identify thoughts and beliefs that are holding you back and helping you to overcome them
  • Believing in you and your potential until you are ready to do that for yourself
  • Helping you to build your confidence and self belief
  • Supporting you to get back up after a setback
  • Helping you to get the career you want – not the one someone else wants for you

How does Career Coaching work?

Coaching is about making changes and sometimes that can feel quite scary so you will set the pace. You will also set the agenda for the sessions and decide on what you would like to focus on.


Then, Denise provides creates a safe non-judgemental space for you to explore and reflect, offers a different perspective and challenges assumptions. Her role as coach is to listen and ask the right questions so you can come up with your own solutions.

    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.
