Why choose
Courage Coaching?

Our clients often describe our coaches as warm and insightful, gentle but focused, with great practical business experience and an ability to ask insightful questions that rekindle awareness. Integrity. Period.

No hype or big sales pitches. We believe good coaching sells itself and we stand behind our work.

Behind the name

Like a lighthouse navigates the way for ships and encourages them to carry on with their journey, business coaching keeps you on track in your career and guides you on your path.

Sometimes ships can get lost at sea or not realise they are lost as we do in our careers. A lighthouse ensures they are back on the right course and gives them the courage to carry on.

A lighthouse, like coaching provides clarity to the journey or career, alleviates any of the client’s fears and encourages them to continue in their career with courage and confidence to become great leaders.

Making meaningful changes in our lives can be tough when
we try to do it all by ourselves.

We can help.

to build business acumen and organisational insight.

We start with introductory 30 minute session to get a sense if the chemistry is right between the coach and the client as trust is the most important element of any coaching arrangement and needs to be there for both the coach and the client. Normally this session is over the phone or via Skype or Zoom.

Once we agree to proceed with the coaching we will ask the client to sign a small coaching agreement outlining the responsibilities of the coach and the client, ethical guidelines and all legal data requirements such as GDPR.

Normally we would have between 4 – 6 sessions for an hour but we are flexible on time and will always meet the clients needs. These sessions may be in person over the phone or video link. What ever is most comfortable for the client. However we personally prefer to meet in person…

Coaching is an active partnership that you control. It is always focused on what’s most important to you, and we find the most natural way to help you make the breakthroughs you want. We work quickly to help you get clear on the best outcome, create a plan, develop priorities, and then begin to close the gap.

We charge €175 for a one hour session for our personal clients. But we also offer a competitive priced 4 session pack for €600.

For business owners, professionals, entrepreneurs, and executives who benefit from more frequent or longer calls – and specific business, management and leadership support including team building and full day events are quoted individually.

All our pricing is exclusive of vat.
