Executive Coach and Mentor

Helping decision makers find clarity and calm

As an Executive and Senior Level Coach and Mentor (trained and supervised by the British School of Coaching), I use coaching and mentoring tools to help unlock and develop my clients’ thinking and decision making.

With significant leadership experience, including as CEO of a renowned international organisation in The Hague, my career has focused on developing people.

Working with

clients to get

them over,


or around

their obstacles…

My clients are often facing career transition, want to develop their roles or wish to get promoted positions within their organisations.

The BSC subscribes to the Association for Coaching and has a clear code of professional conduct. These accredited standards ensure a professional, purposeful and measurable return on investment.

Clients tell me that I build trust and form a warm rapport quickly and that outcomes provide both clarity of purpose and value for money.

Mentoring and appraisal support for Executive Education leadership is also an area of expertise.


I have known Kieran since 2016.  He is an outstanding and inspiring school leader and an accessible, supportive and challenging coach.  In 2020 I started my first CEO position.  Kieran supported me as an executive coach as I progressed through my first year in the role.  He created a safe space where he would mirror back to me and ask thought provoking and challenging questions that helped me to prioritise my activity and time, and also to clarify my thinking in the midst of significant change in my school. Leading through a global pandemic alongside the ever present challenges in leading a school community, can be a lonely place at times.  With Kieran’s experience, having walked the walk himself leading schools alongside his executive coaching credentials, he is a trusted, knowledgeable, supportive and much-needed professional sounding board.  His time and expertise was instrumental in my progress for my first year and in defining the pathway ahead.  Thank you Kieran!

My work with Kieran was invaluable in helping me to take forward my goals; Kieran’s experience, knowledge and insightful questioning helped me to both self-reflect and develop my practice, whilst opening up lots of ideas for me to explore and take forward with my line manager. I came out of the sessions more confident in both what I already know and what I need to do next; and have recommended his coaching skills to other colleagues aspiring towards career or personal development.

My coaching experience with Kieran has encouraged me to reflect on what I value, both personally and professionally, which has enabled me to consider my priorities; my next career steps and simultaneously improve my work-life balance. The sessions were a good balance of support and challenge and I always came away from each session with actions and questions to ponder over a little bit more, enabling me to make my own connections and move forward. Naturally I try to avoid talking about myself and therefore the trust that was developed from the support within and between sessions, was vital for me achieving my goals.
