“Coaching has been hugely beneficial over my career. The insights, knowledge and skills I have gained as a client and a coach have ignited my courage to change focus and direction twice.

As a client, coaching provided a safe space and a structure to review my career, understand my values, strengths and interests, recognise the size of the gap, and make significant changes to move into more rewarding career and work.”

Mary O’Driscoll 

Director, Mary O’Driscoll Strategic Consulting and 
Lecturer, Griffith College Dublin

“I really appreciated the programmes’ focus on the development of skills such as self-awareness (during and outside of coaching sessions), presence, active listening, and attentiveness to one’s intuitions. This is in addition to the basic frameworks, tools, techniques, coaching communication styles and approaches, and ethical considerations that are important to know as a new coach.”

“All the staff are very respectful and show great communication skills. In the Bailey Balfour Training you not only learn and improve essential skills, but you furthermore connect with other like-minded people. Bailey Balfour offers ethical, respectful quality Coaching Training!

A factor that especially stood out to me is the amount of experience and wisdom all the Mentor Coaches share with the attending coaches.”
