Executive Coach & Mindfulness Teacher
Justin spent more than 30 years in software development - starting, building and eventually exiting a market-leading software business. He holds a post-graduate Diploma in Executive Coaching from the Irish Management Institute/UCC and trained as a Mindfulness teacher with The Mindfulness Exchange in the UK.
With a particular interest in increasing psychological flexibility, Justin coaches extensively at all levels of organisations alongside personal coaching and mindfulness teaching.
We are both professional coaches. We met on an advanced coaching development course. Over a coffee, we discussed how fortunate we were to be exposed to what we were learning, and indeed all of the other learning and research we had been exposed to in our coach training.
Wondering why all this information isn't widely known, we decided to see if there was an appetite for it among the general public. So we ran a pilot course in Leixlip.
We were delighted with the participation, engagement, response and feedback we got.
