Clients & Their Experiences
"My experience with coaching has been fantastic. I cannot say enough good things. I feel that I am being listened to by a real person and not a robot. With you, there is more than just me talking, it is a discussion of our experiences and that is something crucial.
You are always very quick to decipher my thoughts even when I cannot figure them out myself & then you explain it back to be in a way I am able to understand straight away. Most of the time I don’t understand how you do that because it’s genius.
You give really really good exercises for me to complete in my own time (i.e the Giving Exercise, journaling) as well as giving me examples of the psychological theories / diagrams ( i.e Drama Triangle). For me personally, I find that I benefit from these visual aids because they help me to understand the situation better as well as learn how to improve the situation.
You are really encouraging. It is practically because of you that I signed up to an MA & a summer camp in USA. I didn’t have enough confidence for that yet the career-guided session made all the difference."
Going to each session was like meeting up with a friend. I was always comfortable talking about any challenges and I always left every session felling empowered. I could feel my stress disappear. Coaching really helped me thru a very difficult situation and Sile was at the end of the phone when I needed help.
As I embarked my first coaching session with Sile - I must admit i was a little nervous. Although I've done development work already, it's never easy over-coming, let alone becoming aware of barriers.
I had an idea what i needed help with but not sure of where to begin to explain. Sile helped me feel at ease straight away and so understanding throughout.
Through our coaching sessions, Sile helped me identify where I was feeling "stuck" and helped me see alternatives. Sile is a great listener and has an amazing ability to pick up on what's not said as well.
I found coaching with Sile to be life changing. It has been a whole new journey of self discovery. After finding my obtastacles, life now holds no bounds for me.
Something within me has changed, I can live in the moment and I feel more like me. There's a spring in my step when I get up in the morning that wasn't there before.
I would recommend Sile to anybody who feels they are not living their life to the max.
Thank you so much Sile, I am infinitely grateful.
“What I wanted was to be a more confident person and more assured of myself. Less worried about what other people thought of me and to be not afraid to try new things especially in academic or test circumstances and to not be worried about the result. Having been to Counselling and it not particularly working I was dubious that I could change or how I could change. Sile made a lot of sense and explained it very simply.”
“I was very stressed and overwhelmed with emotions that I felt I could no longer handle on my own. I thought/assumed that any steps or recommendations would be to hard for me to go through with. Sile showed me how to look at things in a way that that helps me grow from them instead of letting them get to me.”
"I was really struggling and I was fed up of the life I was living. When I met Sile she made me feel very comfortable. I got more than what I wanted or expected.
I had a major breakthrough in understanding myself and I’m achieving a happier lifestyle and building my confidence. I just loved how everything came together and everything made sense.
No matter what is on your mind or how silly you think it sounds, she helps you understand it. My family has definitely noticed a change in me. I am more independent and have more energy to do everyday life things”
“I went to Sile as i wanted to upscale in my employment but was unsure of what kind of job or sector to apply for and was looking for guidance. Sile helped me to identify what I wanted from a job and what type of job would suit my personality. She helped me with my CV as well as with tips for interviews. This advice helped me massively. It gave me direction and a goal. It helped me to be confident going for interviews and as a result I have now gained new employment in a position i am very happy with. Sile guidance and support have been a massive boost to me and i recommend her services to anyone looking for help in there life and career”
I wanted to gain fresh insights into myself, my approach to relationships and life and how I make my way in this world, and thereby be able to change where necessary and be the very best version of myself that I can be. Now my family see me as calmer and more assertive and happier!
I found Sile really easy to listen to and to talk to. I felt comfortable and at ease from the very beginning of the workshop. With advice and skills to use to help to combat my problem , I now know what the root of it is “
Career Coaching Cork
I choose to work with Sile because I was tired of feeling stuck in a job rut. I was struggling to identify a career that would fulfil me and also utilise my skills and experience. Any job search I pursued made me feel worse because I was afraid to take a chance or run the risk of rejection. However, working with Sile helped me to change my mindset, instead of just scratching the surface, Sile helped me to realize more deeply my own unique strengths, skills and experiences. As a result, I developed a CV that reflected my true abilities and also, gave me the confidence to present myself in an authentic manner at interviews.
Anxiety had been a major factor in me seeking help, how it impacted my life and relationships! Since working with Sile I have gained a lot of knowledge and have felt very empowered especially when it comes to relationships and how I can improve my contribution to reflect who I am as a person.
I had been feeling frustrated with many aspects of my life for a while; my sense of direction and focus, my level of comfort with my identity, a lack of motivation and sense of achievement overall. I was probably a little sceptical about whether or not the coaching would help at the start, but working with Sile helped me feeling more accomplished, more confident and less critical of myself. I would certainly recommend working with Sile and have already to a close friend.
