About Your Life Coach

Personal Leadership & Executive Life Coach 

Edel McConnell Profile Picture

Having lived with low self-esteem, I felt stuck in life and I wanted something to change but I didn’t know what that something was. I was working as a Primary School Teacher; I had a great social life and nothing to complain about in the grand scheme of things. A part of me thought that going back to college might give me some clarity, so I signed up for a diploma in Educational Leadership and Management. This diploma was eye-opening to say the least and if anything it confirmed my suspicions that I needed a break from teaching. But how could I leave a secure, pensionable job with all those amazing holidays and what would I do!?

As luck would have it, the Leadership and Management diploma actually introduced me to the world of Life Coaching. There was a module dedicated to the importance of Life Coaching in the workplace and I was hooked from the word go. To my disbelief, the books recommended by my lecturers were all books that I had read previously for pleasure. It turns out I had been coaching myself for years and I didn’t realise it. It was like a light bulb went off in my head! Life Coaching represents everything I believe in and how I try to live my life. Finally, I was feeling excited about something that I felt genuinely passionate about.

I decided to work on my self-esteem and figure out once and for all what was holding me back in life. I signed up to a four-week Life Coaching program with a Personal Life Coach and I have never looked back. Boosting my self-esteem and gaining clarity on what I really want in life led me to completing a diploma in Personal, Leadership and Executive Life Coaching.

As much as I loved my school in Dublin, I knew it was time for me to take a break from teaching and focus on establishing my own Life Coaching business. I specialise in self-esteem, confidence and positive body image coaching as these are areas of my life that I have worked on and developed over the past few years. I feel incredibly passionate about helping people change their mindset and ultimately changing their life. It is never too late for anyone to change how they think and feel about themselves. Trust me, if Life Coaching can work for me then it will work for you too!
