Hi Frances here!

And here is a little bit about me and why I started Your Coaching Space.

When I finished university with my shiny new MSc I couldn't wait to earn money so I could finally travel around the globe. So I lectured in psychology, worked in recruitment and even did a bit of banking! Eventually the funds were made and off I went on one of the most amazing times of my life travelling through India, Asia, Australia, USA and Mexico. This gave me my life long travel bug and I have been back to my favourite part of the world, South East Asia many times since.

When I eventually returned to Ireland I jumped at the chance to work in the exciting Multinational Corporate sector here in Dublin. And here I stayed very happily for over 18yrs as an Operations Manager leading some amazing multi locations teams across Europe. But what was exciting earlier in my career, long hours across different time zones manging people and business travel, all began to take their toll. I over stretched myself, didn't respect my own boundaries and put my teams and clients before myself. Like so many of us work-related stress became my badge of honour. I was successful and was rewarded well for it but its not a sustainable strategy.

My performance blunted and I stated to physically get sick more often. Having always drawn heavily on my fascination with what makes us perform at our best and looking for ways to sharpen my resilience again I turned as always to science. Well, given I'm here now with you I obviously found ways to build my resilience again and be my best. And that's exactly why I founded Your Coaching Space to support you to be able to give it your best.

Underpinned by one to one coaching and the highest Professional and Ethical Standards of the Psychological Society of Ireland Code of Professional Ethics, I hope you enjoy the performance boost we all deserve!
