Ronan Kennedy specializes in various aspects essential to business, such as employment and interview preparation. What stood out for us the most, was that his services were excellently laid out in terms of steps and guidance.

He has a background in international business, psychotherapy, neuro-linguistic programming, and emotional intelligence. He has since worked with over thousands of professionals at different levels of their careers, so his programs can apply to many types of career situations.

We greatly appreciate how his process leads you to produce concrete applications. After identifying your needs he will guide you to producing outputs such as CV’s and cover letters.

His business mentorship involves a similar process of identifying needs but this time assists the client in business plans, goals, and key performance indicators. We think that those looking to start a business or are new in the industry, would appreciate how well spaced his processes are. 

For those looking to develop more specific skills, he does have workshops in business writing, career development and changing jobs.

Another aspect we appreciate is that he has packages prepared for customers at different stages in their career such as those looking to change jobs or prepare for interviews.

Some of these packages can be quite pricey so make sure to check the prices and content in advance.

Pros

  • Distinct and clear steps for each program
  • Offers career counseling, coaching courses and business consultancy
  • Solid background and experience
  • Offers different packages and booking

Cons

  • Operating hours limited to weekdays
  • Packages can be pricey

Customer Reviews

Went the Extra Mile

Ronan was incredible during my phase of job search. He so easily ‘made me figure out’ what I needed to focus on and what needed change. He was brilliant in making me understand the nuances of an interview conversation and gave me the much needed confidence. He went the extra mile in noting down the conversations for later reference. He is very intuitive, thoughtful and knows just the tone and message you need to hear while guiding you on your journey. -Indira Priyadarshini Gopalan Nair

Very Helpful for Interview Preparation

Ronan was very helpful and patient in preparing me for my job interview. He was conscious of our time and wrote up notes of our sessions afterwards which was really helpful when preparing for interview on my own. I got the job I applied for so he was definitely successful! – Jean Doyle

Mark Fennell’s background includes working with big namesakes in radio and media such as FM 104, Ireland: AM, Virgin Media, and newstalk to list a few. 

His journey as a life coach began when he was facing anxiety running a business but now he is able to provide people with resources targeting the very same problems he faced.

He also runs a podcast and writes articles talking about topics like emotions, phobias, habits and anxieties. We like that he is able to provide these resources for customers who want to discuss or learn more.

One of his primary services is coaching, including one-on-one coaching and business coaching. For individual coaching, he has options for different durations of subscription, from one session to a year-long program.

He will work with you in identifying your hurdles and setting a corresponding strategy. His business and corporate coaching services address leadership, entrepreneurship, team building and productivity.

We like that he also has a “tribe” program which is a  more affordable approach to develop  the same goals through a more social environment. It gives clients an opportunity to choose a more individual or socially focused setting.

We did notice however that some of his classes do become fully booked and sold out, so make sure to check his website for the availability of his programs.

Pros

  • Offers different formats for one to one coaching
  • Has online courses tackling different subject matters
  • Customer reception and response praises the experience
  • Provides a tribe program as a cheaper alternative

Cons

  • Mastery Course can be quite costly
  • Some of his courses are sold out or fully booked

Convenience is key, and the guys at Revive Renew know it. From virtual sessions to flexible scheduling, Revive Renew is all about making your life coaching experience as smooth as a jazz saxophone solo.

No more rushing through traffic or dealing with awkward waiting rooms — our sessions went down right from the comfort of our couch.

Their team of coaches is like a squad of personal cheerleaders, pumping you up and helping you smash those goals like a boss. Plus, they’ve got the credentials to back it up, making us feel like we were in the hands of the life coach version of a superhero.

But hey, we’re not just here for the pep talks; we want to know what it’ll cost us. And guess what?

Revive Renew won’t drain your bank account faster than a kid in a candy store. Their prices are surprisingly reasonable, considering the quality of service. It’s like finding a diamond necklace on sale at a thrift store — rare and totally worth it.

Now, we’re not going to sugarcoat it. Life coaching isn’t for everyone.

Some people might find it as useful as a chocolate teapot. But if you’re willing to give it a shot and embrace the power of positive change, Revive Renew is a solid choice. 

They’ll guide you through the murky waters of life with the grace of a synchronized swimmer, leaving you feeling empowered and ready to conquer the world.

Customer Reviews

“I have just completed an amazing journey on the Camino with Joss and Bob. We walked from Sarria to Santiago over 5 days. Joss and Bob looked after us all so well, from motivation and encouragement to organising all the practical stuff. We couldn’t ask for better hosts. I met a fantastic group of people and made new friends on this trip whilst having a bit of craic too. Hope to stay part of this Camino Familia.” — Catherine Dolan

“Just had an amazing weekend in Wicklow. Hiking, aromatherapy, reiki and life coaching it was a life changing adventure. The hosts spoiled us rotten we got five star treatment for whole weekend. The food was so healthy and tasty from homemade granola and compote to lasagne, fresh soups and wraps. I’ve met so many lovely new and like minded friends. I cannot recommend ReViveReNew enough.” — Sarah Byrne

iMindCoach helps provide people with practices and habits to face several problems such as relationships, anger, anxiety, public speaking, and communication.
Their emotional intelligence specialists particularly target inner worriers, inner critics, and negative social environments to help clients in both personal and interpersonal areas.

We were impressed by the range of issues that iMindCoach covers. For mental-emotional areas, they can help clients face different situations such as grief, obsessive-compulsive disorders, low-moods and stress management. 

On the other end of the spectrum, they also cover personal development areas. These include parenting, communication, relationships, developing leadership, public speaking, just to name a few.

We like that with their range in services, numerous clients can tackle different areas of issues and improvement as there is rarely only one in a single person.

For more issues that they don’t have listed, they are flexible to discuss if their services are still applicable. We especially like that compared to other coaching services they have multiple channels of contact.

If this seems a little overwhelming, fret not! They offer a courtesy phone consultation to help clients figure out where to start.

Pros

  • Wide range of issues covered
  • Provide numerous channels for contact
  • Free phone consultation

Cons

  • Closes at 5:30 PM on certain weekdays
  • Should be supplemented with more professional help

Techniques that were Helpful

I could not recommend Mark more. I was suffering from severe anxiety & depression. From the very first session his coaching techniques have helped me to deal with my worst moments, with almost ease. Over the six sessions, being able to shake off those shackles, has helped me to turn my life around. In every aspect; social, health and career.

If you need help at all you’re doing yourself a disservice to not least take the consultation. You won’t regret it. Thank you again Mark. -Neil Coakley

Powerful and Effective

We decided to give Erica a whirl because let’s face it, life can be as unpredictable as an Irish summer. She helped us navigate our way through the chaos.

She knows life happens, and she’s flexible with her sessions. Whether we want to meet in person or prefer the convenience of video calls, she’s got us covered.

Erica is the real deal when it comes to quality. She’s got the experience, the knowledge, and the empathy to guide you through life’s hurdles.

With her by our side, we felt like we got our very own personal cheerleader, except she won’t break into song and dance routines.

Her rates are also as refreshing as an ice-cold pint of Guinness on a summer’s day. She genuinely cares about helping people like us, so she won’t leave you penniless.

In fact, we got more bang for our bucks than a fireworks display on St. Patrick’s Day.

Because a lot of people believe in her, Erica is always booked. If you want to secure an appointment with her, visit her physical shop yourself and book a session there.

Pros

Orla Dempsey is a great choice as a career and life coach for all types of teachers out there. She is a primary school teacher that can help you think through your career and interview scenarios.

She has purchasable PDF guides on her site that can help readers form strategies to face certain job  situations. These include a guide to succeeding at interviews as well as a guide for job applications.

Customer feedback on these guides have been quite positive, especially with helping people come up with concrete action plans and steps with regards to their career.

The Teacher’s Promotion Club is a great alternative she offers for those looking for more monthly tips and tricks discussing similar topics of leadership, techniques, and job applications.

Orla Dempsey also has programs for mock interviews such as leadership interviews as well as newly qualified teachers interviews. These practices usually last an hour to 90 minutes and we appreciate how she provides clients with specific strategies to frame interview responses.

Additionally, she has CV and SAF preparation service which is especially helpful for individuals seeking feedback on document specifics. Alongside this, she can help clients thinking of leaving the teaching position, making the process less overwhelming.

Helpful PDF Guides

I feel so much more confident in my interview preparation after reading & using it. What a brilliant interview guide for teachers! I particularly liked the strategies suggested for framing interview answers, as well as the extensive sample questions and the included interview marking criteria. It gave me a great insight into the whole interview process and it also helped me to develop my confidence further. I loved that the guide is written from Orla’s vast experience in this area and her invaluable expertise really comes through in the guide. – Sandra

A Program that Helped Me with Techniques

I recently completed Orla’s ‘Knock Their Socks Off – Interview Confidence Skills For Teachers’ and I learned so much from it! Orla really simplified everything in the course and didn’t give any unnecessary information she just kept it to the point which I found amazing! I loved how she went through the STAR technique and how to use it in an interview. I always found the ‘tell me about yourself’ question in an interview tricky but with Orla’s help and her idea of the PAWS technique, I feel so much more comfortable. Thank you so much Orla, I really feel I have a structure for interviews now and I can’t wait to try out the new techniques – Ciara Finn

Customer Reviews

Now with the arrival of our 3rd child I am cool, calm and collected”

“On meeting Shane I found that I could connect with his personality and I was able to build up trust very quickly. Shane provided methods for me to challenge stressful situations that I had in my life. This included balancing a stressful job with home life and enhancing relationships with family members. The most important part of the coaching for me was that Shane insured that I was accountable for any actions out of our meetings. Now with the arrival of our 3rd child I am cool, calm and collected” – Richard

Big thank you Shane from Delighted Parents and a very happy little boy”

“Without Shane’s help we thought there was no light at the end of the tunnel.  Our 10 yr old son was having eating difficulties (phobia of certain foods) and just one session with Shane turned him around. Shane gave him the help and technique to over come his fear.  And now thanks to Shane our son is now trying out foods we have never seen him eat such foods as simple as an “Apple and Cashew nuts” which are huge milestones to us.  Shane showed him a tapping technique which he does when he has a fear of trying new foods and it works? Big thank you Shane from Delighted Parents and a very happy little boy”  – Siobhan (for her son Nathan)

Customer Reviews

I am reassured knowing that I can count on his support to continue my journey 

“I have been working with Rob for nearly a year now and and I can honestly say that the experience has been life changing. In addition to some ad-hoc sessions i did the mapping your mastery programme which gave a formal structure and Rob’s guidance for really auditing myself, seeing who I was at this point in my life and asking myself the question, is this the person I want to be? As a result of working with Rob I have made some major life changes which I believe are  moving me closer to becoming a better, higher performing and more authentic version of myself. He has given me the tools that I needed to better navigate life and career. If you have any interest in self development I would strongly recommend making the investment in yourself and working with Rob. I am reassured knowing that I can count on his support to continue my journey of self improvement.” – Daniel Kavanagh

Rob’s coaching has been invaluable during a period of significant personal and professional change

“Over the past six months Rob’s coaching has been invaluable during a period of significant personal and professional change. With Rob in my corner, I’ve been able to take what would otherwise have been quite disruptive changes not only in my stride but as stimuli for growth and development. To anyone considering coaching I can’t recommend Rob enough. His approach is supportive, sympathetic but he is also brilliant at holding you accountable to your goals. You’ll kick yourself for not booking a session with him sooner. ”  – Henry Warner
