What They’re Saying
Kind words from My clients
My teenage son ran away from our home to go and live with relatives. We used to fight constantly, and we both felt unseen and misunderstood. He blocked me on his phone, and I didn’t have contact with him for months, as he refused to take my phone calls. Working with Enda has set me on a healing journey from my childhood trauma, and I am becoming the complete individual I need to be to better fulfil my roles as a mother, woman, and wife. My anger no longer consumes me. My son had now unblocked me, and we are exchanging messages, and he no longer rejects my calls. We’ve been able to meet up a couple of times for lunch or a drink after school, and I’ve curbed my urge to control everything and am very mindful of his feelings. We’re gently mending our relationships.
Enda’s warmth and understanding are felt through our conversations, though done virtually. She provides explanations for what is happening to both you and your teenager. With this clarity, you become more aware of what to do. She also provides action steps that will work, provided you do your part, and she supports you through it. She knows her stuff!
I am incredibly grateful for the support and guidance I received from Enda during a challenging time with my middle school daughter. As a first-time parent of a teenager, I felt overwhelmed and lost when my daughter started going through an identity crisis. She was desperately trying to fit in at school, which led to drastic changes in her behaviour and a decline in her grades. The communication between us had broken down, and she became defiant and distant.
Enda’s guidance helped me adopt a compassion-centred approach, understanding the immense pressure my daughter was under to fit in. With her coaching, I slowly started connecting with my daughter again. It’s incredible to witness the transformation – my daughter is gradually returning to her old self in class, engaging more positively, and showing a renewed dedication to her studies. She’s discovering her own self-worth and understanding that she doesn’t have to change who she is to belong.
The mending of the relationship between my daughter and me is a testament to Enda’s expertise and experience in working with teens. Thank you, Enda, for helping us navigate this challenging phase and become stronger as a family. You’ve paved the way for healing and growth.
My teenage son suffers from a global developmental delay, and parenting him presents many challenges that were draining me physically and emotionally because I didn’t know how to accommodate his needs without compromising our bonds. Physically he is developing, and I couldn’t answer all the questions he was asking me about the changes he was experiencing in his body and feelings. We constantly argued; he refused to attend school and demanded more independence. I was scared to let him go. I was clipping his wings, and his anger towards me was growing.
Enda is a God Sent! She made me see things through my son’s eyes, and this helped me to understand him. The strategies she gave me were practical, and together, we worked on a plan to build my confidence in addressing topics I was shying away from. I’m feeling more relaxed and slowly building my confidence to let my son explore the things he wants to do without me. Our ways of communicating with each other are more nurturing and supportive. I am getting hugs often now, and he includes me in conversations he used to have with his dad only.
Enda is patient, kind and very understanding. She works with you through every step along the way, and honestly, after live coaching with her, you feel lighter and relieved.
If you want to turn your overwhelm, fear, confusion, and stress into joy, clarity, purpose and inspired actions, then you need Enda in your corner.
Not only is her expertise in managing burnout second to none but what sets her apart is her compassion, calm, understanding and ability to listen attentively.
Before embarking on this journey, my relationship with my son was shaky, and I struggled to communicate with him. I was paralysed by fear. Fear to express my needs and to get out of my comfort zone. I was also overwhelmed and stressed from running my business alone while caring for my aging mother.
Since working with Enda, I am now more in control of my day, and I mindfully set my intention each day, not forgetting my me time. I feel energised, calmer, and achieving more. The mindset work around taking control of my fear was deep, but Enda supported me while I navigated this challenge. Whenever I feel fear taking control of me, the strategies become very handy. I’ve made tremendous progress in balancing work and my personal life. I am not afraid to voice out my needs and set healthy boundaries to manage my energy, and my relationship with my son is improving. I am hopeful.
To invest in a coach like Enda is invaluable. She will be your biggest cheerleader!
I did a one-off coaching session with Enda, “Reset-Intensive”, and I am writing this testimonial 3 months after working with her. WOW! I am blown away by how simple strategies can drastically change my life and relationships with my mother, son and husband. All the strategies and tools I was given in the session are working well for me and my family.
I am now calm and more understanding towards my son. I’ve learned how to validate his emotions, and I am no longer quick to dismiss them; I am now listening more and talking less. We’re friends, and I love where we are and looking forward to where we’re heading.
My mindset work with Enda was so powerful, and I can see how it’s positively impacting my work. I am using the pyramid of positive communication with my colleagues, and they are surprised at how well I handle difficult situations and patients. I used to be a slave to stress at home and work, but now I can prioritise things and have more confidence to deal with whatever comes my way.
I’m loving life as a professional working in a high-stress environment, a mother and partner. Thank you, Enda, for your professionalism and compassion.
My abusive childhood impacted how I showed up as a mother and partner. Since working with Enda, I’ve gained the strategies I needed to shift my mindset and get out of the self-sacrificer mode. The intense mindset sessions with Enda taught me how to let go of the baggage weighing me down and preventing me from living the life I meant to.
Enda guided and supported me in a safe space and led me out of victim mode, which has been liberating.
My bond with my teenage son is stronger. The other day he told me,
” I love the new mum”.
Self-care is now a priority; I don’t panic if the washing is not done for a day or the bathroom needs to be cleaned. I am more energetic and love life.
My husband and I have reignited our connection; we’re now spending quality time together, and he is back in the kitchen cooking for the family so that I can rest. We’re now sharing the load and loving being in each other’s presence.
I’ve set firm and loving boundaries with my friends and family, something I was scared to do. This has given me time and space to focus on myself and what matters.
Thank you, Enda, for bringing me back to life and reigniting all my passions and dreams. Your positive impact has shifted things around in my household.
You gave us back the gifts of connection and presence. Thank you for embracing me with all my baggage and never judging me. I felt calm, confident, loved and respected in your presence.
Enda has been a God-sent. She literally turned my life around and has opened my eyes and heart to new possibilities. I am forever grateful for the tremendous support she gave me.
Before embarking on this journey with her, I felt burnout and disconnected from my kids. I was constantly lashing out at them and was angry. Most of the time, I was angry at myself, but I didn’t know how to control my emotions and express myself healthily.
Enda provided me with a safe and nurturing space to offload. She generously offered love and support, practical strategies (nothing fancy and complicated)to manage my day-to-day stress, build my resilience and confidence, let go of my tendency to control everything and reconnect with my children.
I’ve learned to identify my triggers and can now easily manage them to avoid escalation. I am calmer and more confident as a single mother.
My kids are closer to me than before, and our home has a shift of energy. We’re calmer.
Thank you, Enda, for your compassion and for leaving no stone unturned. I am now the love of my life😉!
“Before coaching, I struggle with work/life balance. I was feeling overwhelmed with assigned tasks and projects at work, and I was finding it hard to balance. As a result, I was always on edge, often resulting in poor communication with my husband and less quality time to spend with my family. Enda gave me a safe space to be fully seen and heard; she allowed me to express how I was feeling and then helped me with strategies to move forward in a gentle but accountable way. Enda gently pushed me to start creating healthy boundaries, prioritising tasks, feeling comfortable saying “no” and delegating tasks, being fully present, and owning who I am as a woman first above everything else. The most significant shift for me is that now I see myself as a priority. I no longer feel guilty to take time out alone, breathe, connect with myself, and simply love myself. I’ve learned to switch off totally from work, and I feel more present and connected when I am with my children. Now I know I am beyond capable of creating a sustainable work/life balance and have the confidence in myself that I will maintain a sustainable work/life balance. Enda gave me practical strategies and tools that I can use beyond coaching.
During my coaching sessions, I felt incredibly supported, encouraged & celebrated, even for my small wins. If you’re considering working with Enda, I highly recommend taking the leap and going for it! “
“Before I started working with Enda, I had very low self-esteem, poor time management, and zero time for myself. My life revolves around my family and work. I know I wanted to change, and I kept telling myself I deserved more, but I had no idea what to do or how to change. At first, I had no idea, what was the job of a life coach, so I was a bit anxious to start this journey, but Enda made me feel comfortable during our initial session, and I knew that I was in good hands. Her warm and caring nature made me feel special. Enda has a way with words, and she always sheds light on the darker topics and will guide and support me while I search for answers. I felt comfortable being my authentic self because she was genuine, honest and real.
My husband has been commenting on the change in my mood (no longer grumpy). My confidence has grown. Now I am not afraid to try new things and healthily speak my mind, which no longer comprise my relationships with my children and husband.
I feel like a different person, and I now plan time to spend with myself because I notice the shift in my energy when I take care of myself first. I fill my cup first, and the overflow pours on my children and husband.
Thank you, Enda, for your professionalism, for asking me the hard questions that got me to go within myself to find the answers. I found all the answers I was seeking externally inside of me. I am forever grateful to have worked with you. Thank you for opening my eyes!! “
When I started working with Enda, I felt lost and was trying to find my sense of purpose to live a wholehearted life. I wanted to create a sense of belonging; however, I found it challenging to communicate with others and open up to forming friendships. Enda listened closely to every word I said, and she was very understanding and at no point did I feel judged when sharing my weaknesses and struggles. The main thing I took away was the essence of releasing the idea that I have to live up to others’ ideas and expectations. So I now try to live in the present and constantly remind myself that my best is enough. If I had to describe my coaching experience with Enda in 3 words, it would be Honest, Objective and Non-judgemental.
My coaching experience with Enda was “Supportive and truly life-changing!”
Before coaching, I struggled with my self-worth and felt exhausted, stuck and overworked. I was finding it hard to decide what direction I wanted to go with my life and, most notably, my career. I felt lost, and I couldn’t find a way out. Procrastination and overthinking were my default, and I felt like I was not living to my full potential.
I was determined to achieve my goals, and I felt I could achieve anything knowing that I would have Enda in my corner for 3 months to guide and support me. Enda was very patient and asked me powerful questions, and she held me accountable for what I said I wanted to achieve. I’ve seen a significant shift in my life right after starting my coaching journey, my mental and physical resilience increased, and I no longer entertained negative thoughts. I’ve learned and understood the importance of guarding my energy, using my inner voice for positive comments and taming my inner critic. Being positive towards myself has increased my confidence and attracted positive energy.
Enda was tremendous support for me, and she has a true gift for life coaching. I never once felt judged by her and felt very safe to tell her anything. The support and love throughout and after the sessions were exceptional. I felt thoroughly inspired working with her. This has given me the self-belief and confidence I needed to make some life-changing decisions, like enrolling at university to pursue a degree in psychology, reigniting my love for painting and accepting myself for who I am. I no longer need external validation. I am ME!
Thank you, Enda, for being a fantastic life coach!
Enda was such a kind, supportive and impactful Life coach to work with. She asked me the right questions and was so patient with me. I remember there were days when I would get on to the Zoom call thinking I didn’t have much to talk about, but her deep, thoughtful questions helped me dive deeper into myself and the goals I wanted to achieve. She was always respectful of my answers and created a safe space for me to be vulnerable, which led to a lot of growth and learning. I felt very safe to show my truest self. We also had quite a few laughs in our sessions!
I would urge anyone who feels they need a cheerleader and champion to push them to the next step in life that will set you apart and make you live to your full potential, then Enda is your girl!
