About Your Coach - Gillian McDonagh

Gillian McDonagh

My coaching style

My coaching style has been described as intelligent and insightful as well as challenging, encouraging, and supportive. I expect a high level of energy, focus, and commitment from my clients and aim to give an equal amount in return.

About Me

Before training as a coach I spent over 20 years working in the music industry, performing with some of the best orchestras, ensembles and artists worldwide.

Coaching has given me the opportunity to develop my interest in people – what makes them tick and what separates average from outstanding. I believe that we’re all capable of far more than we dare to perceive.

What I Offer

I provide tailor-made one-to-one coaching; I enjoy delivering training around areas of coaching, developing Emotional Intelligence, NLP and leadership development; and welcome the opportunity to be part of an integrated training strategy.

Accreditation, Training and Qualifications      

I am an accredited executive coach, an active member of the Association for Coaching, a certified Personal Performance Coach and a Master NLP Practitioner and Sports Practitioner and hold certification in NLP Hypnosis and Applied Neuro Science.

I am a licensed practitioner of the Emotional Capital Report [developing EQ & Leadership] and the Firework Career Transition Programme as well as having a working knowledge of MBTI and DISC profiling tools.

I follow an ongoing programme of CPD with interests ranging from Mindfulness Coaching and The Thinking Environment to Challenging Coaching and sports psychology.

I adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and above all respect my clients' complete confidentiality.

Personal Philosophy

In a lifetime we access only a small portion of our true potential. My aim as a coach is to support and encourage those who are brave enough to explore this and to use it towards the benefit of themselves and others.

Human beings are amazing creatures - but we all need the space, time and opportunity to discover this for ourselves and the courage and support to use it.

My Mission

Is to help my clients realise and develop their potential in order to enjoy success in work and fulfillment in life.
