Denise has more than 10 years’ experience as a Professional Certified Coach and Leadership Development Specialist and a 20-year corporate background developing talent and managing people performance. She is a member of the ICF and works to the ICF Code of Ethics to ensure her training is of the highest standard.

Who is Coaching Skills Training for?

Coaching Skills Training is ideal for:


  • Managers
  • HR Business Partners
  • L&D Business Partners
  • Team Leaders
  • Individuals interested in self-development

Why is Coaching Skills Training needed?

More and more organisations are relying on line managers to use coaching to develop individuals and manage the performance of others. In addition, HR and L&D business partners are expected to demonstrate coaching capability when supporting business leaders to identify and solve business challenges.


Coaching enables managers to have a different type of conversation, one in which individuals are empowered to come up with the solutions to their own challenges and encouraged to play to their strengths.


A coaching approach shifts awareness from ‘the problem’ to the person; their experience and the possibilities open to them. It results in new ways of working, productive meetings and encourages honest and meaningful feedback.

What are the outcomes of Coaching Skills Training?

The Coaching Skills Training is informal, informative and inclusive. A mix of proven techniques and activities are included to suit all learning styles. By the end of the day participants will:


  • Understand more about coaching and coaching principles and how it differs from mentoring
  • Be introduced to a range of coaching skills
  • Have had the opportunity to try out some practical coaching techniques
  • Develop awareness about their own management behaviours and style
  • Feel more confident when using both coaching and mentoring as an approach to develop their people.


Participants will be able to apply coaching skills to:


  • Help people to recognise their skills and capabilities
  • Unlock potential
  • Increase performance
  • Encourage others to find their own solutions to problems
  • Provide feedback
  • Manage tricky conversations
  • Motivate others


Coaching Skills Training sessions can be designed to meet any specific needs of your organisation.

    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.
