Meet Kathleen

I am a member of the International Coach Federation and was awarded a Professional Certified Coach credential (PCC). I am also an Educator with over 25 years teaching experience in Primary and Higher Education.

My journey has led me around the world and back to Ireland, where I am happy to be settled in Tipperary.

 

I am  excited to continue to develop my coaching practice where I have a strong track record providing coaching support for:

  • job issues
  • personal change
  • career growth.

Through my company, Invest in Yourself,  my desire is to support women in Higher Education who want to cope with – and overcome – their professional/personal struggles and challenges.

My initial training in Montessori formed my teaching and coaching style and values which are:

Follow the learner,
look for success rather than mistakes or slip ups
and the foundational belief that
People are ‘Naturally Creative, Resourceful and Whole’
The Co-Active© Model.

I work face to face here in Ireland or virtually anywhere in the world.

Feel free to make contact to chat
about the transformation that is possible for you!

Outside of my coaching, I love to hike, cook and spend quality time with my family and friends. Traveling this beautiful planet is important to me so I'm grateful that my work with my clients can happen online anywhere! ! 


I hugely value family and am delighted that two of my lovely nieces are supporting me with their talents.


Special thanks to:

who is on board supporting me with content

Denis M Murphy,
University of Limerick

"Kathleen is quite simply one of the nicest, kindest and most genuine people I have ever known. I came to know her while she was mentoring a programme I was on. It was a time of great change in my life and I was especially appreciative of the support Kathleen offered. When the opportunity came up to be coached by her I jumped at the chance."  Click here to keep reading

Josephine Lynch,
Graduate Entry Medical School, University of Limerick

"I worked with Kathleen at a transitional stage in my career, when my job was evolving into a more defined managerial role. I had to move from supervising people while still being a ‘doer’ to a role where I had to consciously manage people, their workloads and their personalities. She made me realise that I could make the transition and achieve my goals as well as achieve what I needed to achieve at work." Click here to keep reading
