“I have worked with Louise over the course of several months. My goal was to increase my productivity at work, while at the same time to create a better life for myself outside of work. Louise is an excellent coach! She provided me with the tools and feedback to learn which directions I should go, and the best ways to achieve my goals. Louise's unique strength lies in her ability to elicit personal values and goals through creative exercises. Her coaching has been very effective, my goals have been reached and my life has been positively impacted. My recommendation: 5/5 stars.”

“I started working with Louise in November. As many people, I knew what I didn't want as a career but finding what it is that I want proved more challenging. Working with Louise, I was able to start focussing on what is important to me and which direction I want to take. She is very professional and can confidently arm someone with the tools needed to succeed at work and in life."
Eric Paquin - Program Manager at Microsoft

“Louise was recommended to me by a friend who has used her services repeatedly as a HR manager.
I went to Louise to improve upon my interview technique, but what I found was as well as improving my interview skills I also gained tools that have helped me not only in planning out interview answers but other methods for setting goals for my future career and making sure I am achieving those goals going forward. Louise is an excellent coach and aims to get the best out of you in a friendly relaxed environment. I would have no hesitation in recommending her for Career Coaching."
Alan Walsh - Project Manager IT sector

“Before coming to Louise I was struggling to face my fears of failure, to find my inspiration and believe in my own talents.  Louise’s coaching service came highly recommended from a friend who had taken the jump to self-employment and I wanted an independent voice to bounce off, outside of friends and family.  I enjoyed finding a non-judgemental space to discuss my thoughts, disclose my fears and share my achievements. Louise is encouraging and very positive, challenging me with work sheets that were thought-provoking and stimulating. I’m moving forward, being creative and know the future is brighter because of our sessions. The coaching exercises between sessions are very effective. I think about my day in a more constructive manner using any spare minutes in a thoughtful, productive way. Recognising what was holding me back was empowering and released me to move forward."
Audrey Vance - Business Owner/Entrepreneur at Wedding Dress Ink

“Finding Louise and doing three career coaching sessions with her has literally changed my life. It sounds dramatic but it’s true. It was a gradual process but I feel that the sessions with her gave me the tools to increase my confidence in my own abilities, which in turn gave me the confidence to make the changes I needed. I enjoyed changing one small thing a day, it gradually turned into big changes that have made a huge impact on my life. I also realised that I love networking, which I had never really done before the coaching, as I had never seen the benefit to me and now it’s a huge part of my new role! It certainly didn’t happen overnight, a lot of time and effort went into it but I am delighted with how things have turned out and am very grateful to Louise for her support, professionalism and wonderful coaching style."
Elaine - Recruitment Sector (Dublin)

“I knew that I had a sense of wanting to change things but had a lack of clarity about how to move forward. I did quite a bit of research and chose Louise's services as I was attracted to the creative angle. The work we did really gave me the space to talk about me and have somebody objective relay back what I was saying. When you hear yourself through others it can really give you clarity on where you want to go. The coaching tools & techniques do take a lot of time but I believe that this is necessary, as where I started out from to where I am now has only been achieved by spending the time to think, research, eliminate and then identify the right option for me. I am no longer stressed or anxious about the next steps as I know that it will happen and I am excited about the journey ahead. I am also clearer on some options that I had previously thought were suitable career options for me, I am not going for second best and am now much clearer on the direction."

“Louise has worked as an Associate Career & Executive Coach with Harmonics since 2012 delivering 1:1 Career Transition Programmes, Leadership Coaching Programmes and facilitating workshops with our clients. Louise has also contributed to the CV and Cover Letter sections of our Self-Marketing Manual. Thoroughly professional in her approach, the feedback we receive from clients on the work that Louise delivers on our behalf is consistently excellent. I can recommend Louise highly as an expert in her field"
Fiachra Driscoll- General Manager at Harmonics

“For some time I struggled to properly identify a career that would fulfil me and also utilise my skills and experience. Louise’s energy and knowledge instantly helped me to start a process of self-analysis, which has given me clear and actionable objectives and has helped give me some clarity with regards to what my career direction should be. Louise constantly provides constructive advice and guidance and she is non-judgemental and doesn’t “pigeon hole” you into set careers, she lets you look at yourself and helps you see the wood for the trees. I’d recommend Louise to any friend or colleague, no matter what stage they are in, in their careers, or what their professional or educational background."
Gareth - Higher Education Sector

“Before meeting with Louise I was pretty disillusioned about my career direction. I was sure I was on the wrong track and as I couldn't figure out what I wanted myself, I asked Louise to help. She helped me to focus on what was important to me, including my core values. By having our values met regularly through our work we will have a more fulfilling career. So simple but so true. What I liked most was the way Louise was able to make me think differently about things and approach things from different angles. There were numerous occasions where I simply said, “I never thought of it like that!” Although this is not a counselling service as Louise is keen to point out, the exercises were quite therapeutic and thought provoking and were great at getting your core values and principles out in the open. Since the sessions I am more focused on what I need to be doing to make sure I follow the right career path for me. Also, I love the mind-mapping. I mind map everything now and it’s so much better than making lists!"

“Through the Interview Preparation Coaching, Louise really helped me with my approach to interviews and with my confidence and ability to show my strengths to an interview panel. The session was much more than I expected - it helped me to think further into the future about what I want from my life and career. Louise's enthusiasm and her commitment to helping her clients is infectious - I definitely left feeling invigorated and more motivated than ever. As a new graduate in a tough employment market, her input was invaluable and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone. Thank you so much, Louise, for helping me to land my dream job!

“Louise has assisted me greatly in making the scary transition from a full time management role to the new world of redundancy and self employment. Louise has supported me over the bumps in the road as I move forward. She has given me a roadmap and a structure and has helped me to appreciate the progress and the wins along the way. It's great to have the help of such an experienced coach. Louise shows empathy and understanding and I really appreciate her objectivity. She knows the business world so draws from personal experience.”

D.M - Senior Consultant

Before meeting Louise I was feeling very ‘lost’ in my current position and severely lacking in confidence. Over the course of our career coaching sessions, Louise provided me with excellent guidance and helped me dissect and address what I thought was an overwhelming situation, into bite-sized pieces. Louise helped me to focus on my positive attributes as all I could see at the time were my weaknesses and failings. With her help, I realised that I didn’t necessarily have to change my career; instead I focused on a specialty within my profession that interested me. As a result, I have not changed my position, but I now have the confidence to put myself forward for tasks that I would previously have shied away from. Overall, I feel more positive and re-invigorated in my area of expertise, and most importantly believe in myself again. 
I would highly recommend Louise’s career coaching sessions to friends and colleagues. It was the best decision I made."

S.H - Project Manager

“When I first met Louise I was lacking motivation due to dissatisfaction in work. She helped me to find out what areas interested me, not just to motivate me to find a new job, but to find a new job that I could be happy with. Like Louise says "There's a difference between having a job and having a career". Together we also highligted my skills, and she made me think about things I would never have thought of before. Both during and after my sessions I stayed motivated and took small, but significant steps, and now less than 2 months after I had my first session, I have a new job. I couldn't be happier that I decided to try Louise's career coaching, it really works!"

"I really want to thank you for all your help. I am now working in the same salon I secured my work experience in and for the first time in many years I'm enjoying my job and I'm happy. Also, it's funny how many of my friends have since followed my footsteps. I felt so positive and motivated after meeting with you. Usually after attending something like this I would feel deflated again after a few days but not this time. I really feel you taught me life skills that I will forever use."

"Before meeting with Louise I was lacking confidence in my ability to perform in interview settings. Louise provided me with excellent guidance and insight on how to answer interview questions in a structred and effective manner. She also helped me to highlight my key qualities and how to communicate them in an interview situation. I would highly recommend Louise's Interview Preparation Sessions to my friends and colleagues. Louise is an excellent coach and a joy to work with, she is so enthusiastic and takes a real interest in her clients.I'm so delighted I got the job, Louise's advice and guidance really did help me and I was a lot more confident after our interview session, which showed at interview. Thanks for all the help."

"Louise is a fantastic coach! She is open and honest and full of positive energy. Louise helped me realise how all aspects of our lives can in a positive or negative way affect our work. Louise helped me to deal with my fears about the career change by showing me how to set realistic goals and how everyday small steps, without overwhelming feeling and pressure, can lead to fantastic new future. I would highly recommend Louise to anybody who is thinking about career change and has doubt or doesn't know where to start. Thank you Louise!"

“Just wanted to let you know I had the interview. I felt more confident and less nervous at the interview. That was because I felt that due to the preparation I knew better what they were looking for. I feel happy that I did enough and well enough, which is great. And I feel that even if I need to do more interviews I am so much better equipped and have a much different approach to interviews now. I never did much preparation for them before. Thank you so much! The session was definitely worth it and it is great how beneficial just an hour and a half could be. You are great!"

“Louise helped me to regain some of my self confidence and to remember what I was good at. She also gave me techniques to enable me to make some decisions as regards the future direction of my career. The ‘homework’ encouraged me to continue to work on the things we had discussed in between sessions and further develop what we had discussed in the sessions. I had a lot of the ideas in my head but she was able to help me organise the ideas, think of a few more, to make some decisions and identify contingencies in the event things didn’t work out as planned. The sessions motivated me to make positive changes which should help me to move forward in my career."
R.T - Senior Manager-Financial Services Sector

“I found the coaching experience extremely valuable and believe that this marks the beginning of a new career path. Coaching has given me tools and methods that I can use on a regular basis to remind me of what is important and how to really plan your goals! Through the coaching process I was able to highlight the most important things to address in my life right now and realize the importance of always honouring your values. Coaching has now provided me with an effective way to plan out my career map in a creative way. Louise is incredibly supportive and I would highly recommend Louise's coaching services. Her coaching has taught me to write things in such a way that I can plan a course of action suited to my needs. Great experience!"

“I thought I hated my job and sought Louise's help to 'get a new life'. How wrong was I?! Initially sceptical of her mantra that 'I would be the one with all the answers', I quickly realised that trusting in her was the right thing to do. Louise has helped me to turn a dial in my brain which has eliminated so many negatives and turned them into positives. My journey continues but I have actually realised that there are many aspects of my job that I love and I think I have accepted for the first time in a 20 year long career that I am actually really good at what I do."

"The whole interview process was quite drawn out but eventually found out last week that I was sucessful in my interview. I wanted to say thank you for your help. Your tip about talking outloud into the mirror was great because I picked up on my bad habbits and eradicated them before the big day.
Thank you again."

“Before I met Louise I was anxious about coaching and what it means, but within minutes of the session, I was made feel completely comfortable and at ease to talk about any angle of my life. Whether it is career, family, priorities, money or the future, Louise opened my way of thinking to let me find the answers myself. These answers turned to short term and long term objectives and a plan was formed to achieve these goals. Ever since the sessions, I’ve been charged with motivation, self awareness and a belief in reaching realistic goals.”
Richard - Film-maker
