"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."
Peter - ICT Sector

 


“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



 
“I was at a crossroads in terms of my career direction and felt that some executive and life coaching would be very beneficial for me. I am very glad I found Louise in my online search and a colleague of mine had also recommended Louise to me subsequent to this. What benefited me most was the approach Louise used to our sessions, she very much helped me understand how I can get clarity on what direction I would like to take through the coaching tools and in between session exercises I undertook. This really helped me to take the time out to think about a lot of significant improvements I wanted to make and gave me the tools and confidence in terms of leadership and aligning my values and career direction. I also improved upon my CV and interview preparation skills. My confidence improved a lot throughout our sessions and I would very much like to work with Louise again in the future . I would recommend to anyone that is in a similar situation to have a chat with Louise as taking the first few steps can really help you understand where you want to go on this journey."
Ken Walsh - Senior Commercial Accountant



“I booked coaching sessions with Louise when I was at a crossroads in my career and needed to get some clarity and guidance on my next steps. Working through the exercises and giving myself time to reflect and question my values whilst also having to reach out to friends and family for their opinions was a worthwhile and motivating experience. I gained confidence and insight into what is important to me, my career and my work life balance and the sessions allowed me to identify roles and industries that would enhance that area of my life. I continued the sessions to include the CV Review and Interview skills which was hugely beneficial. All the sessions were confidence building and gave me the skills needed to successfully apply and interview for a new role which I start soon. I can highly recommend Louise for her passion for her work and you as an individual when you are in her company but also in the follow up emails she sends you. She will bring out the best you, but you must be willing to put the time in! It is a worthwhile investment on yourself and I know will stand to me for many years. Thank you Louise!
Ciara Buckley - Senior Client Services Manager at Novartis

 

 
“The interview is the best way for a person to shine and demonstrate the strengths, passion and experience. Easier said than done especially if your interviewed by the CEO or CMO or CCO or all of them!!! So Louise is absolutely amazing as she puts herself in the shoes of the interviewer and asks you all the challenging questions you are about to face! She studies your case in advance, she provides extremely relevant feedback and coaches you how to excel and shine at the interview. So I passed 6 virtual interviews with all of the people I mentioned above... And I got the job! Truly appreciate Louise coaching and support - it gave me so much confidence and self-belief, helped me overcome any fears and I kept my focus on my passion and strengths."
Villy Valcheva - VP Medical Affairs Europe at Albireo Pharma, Inc.
 


"Louise I nearly booked you last year but decided to wait and apply for jobs as I thought I could try it on my own. Looking back really I should have booked you last year! I went for lots of interviews and didn’t get placed on a panel! My confidence was almost gone and I really thought there was no hope left. I came back to asking you to help and booked the interview package and today I am delighted to have gotten my new dream job and its all thanks to you Louise."
David - Senior Manager Public Service (HSE)

 

 


“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."
Sarah Hogan - Senior HR Manager



 
“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


 
“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 - Manager at Virgin Media

 


“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



 
"As my fear for interviews more often than not led me to poor performances, I decided to work with a coach. I contacted Louise and after our first session I felt transformed. She gave me not only the right tools to tackle my coming interview but also the confidence I needed to face an interview panel. I was the reserve candidate but got a much better offer than expected. I know I have to continue working to further improve my interview skills, but the improvement I made in my interview performance after working with Louise was really noteworthy. I have no doubt I will go back to Louise when the next opportunity arrives."  
M.V. - Higher Education Sector


 
“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 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!"
John - Project Manager



 
“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."
Louise Branagan - career transition from Financial Services to Beauty Industry

 
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!
Sinead - Solicitor

 


“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



 
“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 Harmonics


 
“I found Louise Nevin's coaching sessions absolutely fantastic in helping me to identify and get on the road to what I really want to do in life and I found her attitude so enthusiastic. I would have no hesitation in recommending Louise's coaching sessions to anyone”.
Ruairi Mc Sharry - Web Designer


 


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!"
Ida Young - Legal Secretary

 
Louise was very engaging and managed even on days when I was extremely de-motivated to keep me engaged. No mean feat!. Coaching has added new structures to the methods I needed to practice around time-management and concentration. I am much more conscious of how much I control in terms of allowing people to hijack my time. I am now planning better. We moved from my professional situation to my personal situation and Louise demonstrated strategies for both. Louise has a depth of knowledge and she got me working towards my goals whether I was in the form or not. I would say, do not expect Louise to do the work for you, she's there to guide and faciliate you. Coaching was a very positive experience and I need to continue the strategies that Louise has introduced."
HR Manager - Retail Sector



 


"Just a short note to let you know that I have been offered the role of CIO. I'd like to thank you for your advice and support to help me to achieve this outcome. Best wishes for the future."”
Gerry - Senior Manager - ICT Sector



 
“I came to Louise looking for clarity and direction - and she absolutely delivered. I found her to be very professional, easy to connect with and most importantly her coaching made me feel empowered and inspired to take immediate action. Louise is an excellent coach and I would highly recommend her services."
Conor - Health & Fitness Sector/Self-Employed


 
"I really enjoyed my sessions with Louise. It was lovely to be around someone so positive and inspiring. I have been busy trying to do the follow up work and reading what she set me and I am now really looking forward to what the future holds as opposed to being nervous and anxious. Louise is a joy to work with and I would highly recommend her sessions."
N.O'S - 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!"
Carly Keegan - Art & Design teacher with Institute of Further Education



 
“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."
A.S. Media & Communications



 


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."

J.O - Financial Services Sector




 


“Neither my sporty nor my arty talents were being maximised and now I have goals in place that I know I can and will achieve in both. Anyone who finds Louise on their road will be very lucky and she will definitely enlighten their lives. She is such a lovely, warm person that she can only bring positivity to the lives of others.”
Lucianne White - Presenter



 
“Got it!!! I wanted to let you know that I got the job. I'm delighted. Thanks so much for all your help in getting the most out of me. You are extremely professional, well-prepared and motivating and great to work with."

Colin - Head of Department- Educational Sector


 
“Just a quick few words to say thank you very much for the excellent coaching this morning. I feel a million times better already knowing more clearly where I am going and where to start and a great feeling of being in those roles already. Its lifted my energy to a mighty level and its all 'action' from here on. I am more than pleased with the results of my coaching session with you, you were perfect. Brilliant!! I will keep you posted on my success:-).. in achieving my goal:-)"
Catherine Christie - Business Owner/Entrepreneur


 


“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."
Majella - Post-Primary Teacher



 
“Working with Louise while preparing for an interview for a leadership position was beneficial both in terms of boosting my confidence and helping me feel prepared, and also in providing some much-needed direction in how to approach the interview strategically. After two sessions focusing on interview preparation I went into the interview armed with knowledge of my strengths and how to ameliorate for perceived weaknesses, feeling that I had done everything within my power to achieve my goal. I got the job and highly recommend Louise as a coach for anyone who needs a steer from a friendly, experienced and expert coach.”
Head of Library Services - Higher Education

 


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!"
H.A. - Public Sector




 


“I am very, very happy to inform you that it went extremely well and I got the job!!!!!
Once again thank you very much for your professional help and your kindness and support.
You are part of my success!!"”
G.V. - Senior Consultant - Health Service Executive



 


“Many thanks for all of your assistance last week with the Interview Preparation. The coaching was invaluable in getting me more prepared for my interview and seemed to work out well as I was offered the role just today!. Appreciate your help and will have no hesitation in pointing anyone else in your direction for any similar coaching in the future."
