Professional Biography Life and Executive Coach BSc (Hons) in Accountancy Economics and Law, Birmingham Uni. MSc (Distinction) in Organisation and Management (2012) at QUB TEFL (Distinction) (2016) – I tutor Italian business people in Belfast. QQI level 6 (Distinction) with Dublin Business School (2018) My first career was in Business and Finance for 22 years in all sectors of the economy, finishing as Group Finance Operations Manager for NMNI (National Museums Northern Ireland) for 11 years. After leaving the corporate world I re-trained as a Life and Executive Coach and started the business in early 2019. Along the way I studied Italian in Florence, Italy.
Testimonials I went into this process with Doreen feeling like life coaching was rather an indulgent way to spend my time, but hoping to gain some new perspective on things. While I dont have “trauma” as such, there were various situations in my everyday life that I would find incredibly hard to navigate, and through the process of working on myself I’ve seen a totally new perspective and have started thinking much more rationally about situations and my reactions to them. I would recommend (the process of) Doreen’s life coaching to anyone, not as a quick fix but as a total reprogramming of thought process. Doreen’s support has been invaluable, and I couldn’t rate her any higher if I tried. I’m so excited to see what improvements I can make in my personal and professional life, and have already begun to see great new opportunities arising just from changing my thought process.

I met with Doreen this morning as part of a 1:1 session for a networking group we both belong to. The 1:1 was initially meant to allow Doreen and I to get to know each other a bit better and to share some info about our own businesses and what we want to achieve. However, without realising it Doreen was in coaching mode and I have to say I couldn’t recommend her enough. Doreen has a wonderful way of understanding what makes people tick, understanding root causes of issues and actually helping people believe in themselves. I am not a person short of confidence, but to find someone, in a professional capacity that thinks along the same lines I do is most refreshing. I can happily recommend Doreen as a coach to any of my network and think she would be an asset to anyone that spends time with her!

Having spent decades avoiding dealing with issues affecting my work life, health, and family life, Doreen helped me to navigate through these issues to help redress the balance. Doreen has a very natural way of talking to you to draw the issues out, carefully going into difficult areas but encouraging you to talk about such matters by making you feel safe. Doreen has left me with useful techniques, some of which I use daily, to help keep me focused and avoiding slipping back into old habits. I can’t recommend Doreen highly enough and so please give her a call for a chat, you’ll not regret it.

I contacted Doreen after seeing a few of her Linkedin videos and was immediately taken by her warmth and pragmatic approach. I knew I was looking for something to help me realise my full potential. The journey we ended up taking was of self-discovery and self-perception. Doreen’s sessions have left me with feelings of contentment and worthiness in who I am. I understand it is an ever evolving process however I feel equipped with the knowledge that whatever life throws at you it always come back to self and how you chose to handle it.

Doreen has an exceptional gift that allows her to see right through the crap and fog in your life and get straight to the real issue(s) at play. Doreen provides you with guidance, practical and reasonable tools to that help you be the best version of you, helping towards you being more successful, confident, mindful, etc in all areas of your life. Doreen has the life experience to back her up too – she has been the overworked executive juggling home life and career, she has been in the stressful positions of managing teams, budgets and meeting strict deadlines. I had had a couple tough years with my work/life blend and finally took the time to invest in me – best investment ever! Inspiring, revealing, life changing.

I have had the pleasure to have some 1-on-1 time with Doreen and also listen to her deliver a presentation on the power of your thoughts. Honestly, this presentation was so powerful. Doreen has a way of taking something that others overly complicate and translate it in a way that is easy to understand but ever so impactful. There is no fluff and faff with Doreen, she is straight-talking but with a generous heart. If you get an opportunity to work with Doreen or see her in action I would jump at the chance.
Michelle Brand
“Deciding to find a life coach has been one of the best decisions I have ever made and choosing Doreen was an even better one. I had come to the point in my career where I had come up against a hurdle and I couldn’t get over it. The more I tried the more tired I became. Way down deep tired! Filling my head with negative thoughts and believing I was the problem. My confidence dropped and I was not happy. Doreen made me feel really welcomed. Her approach was warm and personal. She was genuinely interested in helping me. She was confident in her own skills that she could make a difference. She then empowered me with skills and tools so that I could help myself. She opened my eyes so that I can see my own value and potential. You could say she helped broaden my horizon so that I can look forward to a bright future filled with hope and opportunities. Thank you Doreen, I will always value and appreciate what you have done for me.”

I have just finished a series of coaching sessions with Doreen and I can honestly say that I feel like a different person. Doreen has helped me with a number of problem areas in my life – she helped me identify my self-defeating thoughts and behaviours that had given rise to these situations and gave me practical advice and solutions on how to deal with them. In the sessions, Doreen provided a calm, safe and supportive environment in which I felt comfortable discussing my difficulties and where I wanted my life to improve. I am still a work in progress but with Doreen’s help I am now facing my future with confidence and the changes I need to happen in my life are starting to materialise. I wish I had had Doreen’s help 30 years ago but you are never too old to change your life!
Alison
Not only was the life coaching course both fun and challenging but Doreen’s direct feedback for improving my self belief, esteem and confidence was invaluable. Doreen has a calm and logical method of coaching that truly connected and inspired me, I cannot speak highly enough of Doreen’s life coaching course!
Sonia
Doreen is magic! Hard to believe I went from someone who rarely looked at bank statements and actively avoided all money matters, to someone who is now in charge of the family finances. I’ve switched bank accounts, negotiated a mortgage and hunted down the best value ISA’s for us. More than that I finally feel in control and this has spilled into all areas of my life. It was easy too! Thanks to Doreen’s supportive coaching I feel empowered. I can highly recommend her!”
