After the sale of my business I realized I needed career coaching to re-establish my entrepreneurial spirit and get me headed back on a clear path again. I knew I wanted a calm setting far away from the stress and daily pressures of Germany including an English speaking coach who would listen emphatically and make me find my own answers. And in my search I discovered Niall Heenan in Terryglass, Ireland who filled all of these criteria. I stayed in one of his cottages and he coached me on my business ideas while I continued my writing and walked through the rural countryside.
Niall’s approach is “ non- invasive” – meaning, he allowed me to choose my own topic, set my own pace and discover my own answers. He guides; he doesn’t direct and that is what made our sessions so productive. Taking responsibility for one’s life and career was the basis of our work together and his use of creative art as non-verbal expression was especially useful for my awareness. Although our time together was limited, I made noticeable progress in my development.
Since I was in Ireland a my new theatre consulting business has taken me to Italy, Austria, America and China.
