1:1 Life Coaching

Life coaching on a One to One basis.

Helping you to gain confidence and self-esteem, to get unstuck and live your life outside of your fears and limiting beliefs so that you can move forward with the goals you set yourself in life with a winner’s mindset.  Life coaching helps you to stop saying “I Can’t” and start shouting, “Hell yes I can“. You set your goal and together we will design an action plan to take those steps you have always wanted to take. Life Coaching is Investing in yourself.

1:1 Coaching with EFT

EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique to give its full name is also known as tapping.  Our bodies are made up of energy and there are several pathways throughout the body. Negative emotions can block some of these pathways and so energy does not flow freely.  EFT is tapping on acupressure points on the face and body to clear these emotions. EFT can really compliment coaching where negative thoughts and feelings are being addressed during a coaching session.

Telephone Coaching

Telephone coaching is as beneficial as face to face coaching and especially in these times when you may feel safer than meeting face to face.

Zoom Coaching

All the above coaching can be done over the zoom or whatsapp platform, with the same results as a face to face coaching session.

About Me

Mary Dunne

Mary Dunne

Life Coach

I am an accredited Life, Confidence, and Mindset coach. I help people to take a holistic look at their life, identify areas that you are not satisfied with, and set goals for improvement.  I work on your mindset, the beliefs, doubts, and fears that are holding you back. I help you to step out of your comfort zone and change the stories you have been telling yourself up until now.

I can tell you with 100% confidence that Life coaching does work, because I am proof of that.

I suffered most of my life with confidence and self-esteem issues because of life events. My mindset was not great, and I didn’t feel happy for a very long time. I searched for years for something that would make me happy. If only I had known, then that happiness does not come from outside you but within you.

After getting my Life and Executive coach accreditation with the LBCAI, and My QQI certificate in the Professional Practice and Ethics of coaching, I continued with my continuous professional development and have accreditation in NLP, CBT, EFT, and Solution based counselling with the CTAA.

I blend all of my knowledge from these courses into my coaching and the results speak for themselves. (Please see my reviews section)

If you are feeling like life is a bit stagnant, you are stuck in a rut, you want to try new things but confidence is holding you back, you feel uncomfortable in public settings so you hide away, you have a goal but are not taking the steps required to achieve it, you are in a job you are not happy in, but feel you have no way out, you are feeling anxious about trying new things but you also know something needs to change, you now have an empty nest since your family have grown and now you feel lost. If any of this resonates with you, You Are Not Alone because this was my life.

Consider giving yourself the gift of Life, Confidence & Mindset Coaching.

Life coaching is for any age so don’t allow age to be your excuse for not investing in yourself. I was 48 when I started studying coaching, 49 when I got my accreditation, 50 when I started coaching clients. 52 when I ran my first live workshop and left a job, I was so overworked, undervalued and stressed out, which I held for 14 years, and so again proof that you are never too old, and it is certainly never too late to change your life.

You have absolutely no need to feel nervous or anxious when meeting me. I am friendly, down to earth, compassionate, trustworthy, empathetic, good fun, honest, kind, non-judgemental, and solution focused. I absolutely love being a Life coach and helping others to live happier lives, and become the best version of yourself, whatever that means to you.

Questions commonly asked about Life Coaching

What is a life coach?

A life coach is someone who helps their clients to see their full potential. They help them to break free of the beliefs, doubts, fears and worries that keep them from going after what they want in life. They can help individuals in different areas of their life. Because each human being is different, so are their goals. A Life Coach will guide their clients to reach their true potential and achieve personal, relationship or professional goals with confidence.

How does Life Coaching work?

Coaching typically consists of a series of one-on-one sessions, and the sessions usually last for 1 hour. You will meet with me weekly, fortnightly, or monthly depending on your needs and how well the coaching process is going. Coaches use several tools, techniques, and processes designed to help the client find what drives them, where they want to go, and the best way to get there. The relationship builds on the foundation of trust and grows through various stages. 

Can Life Coaches help with stress or anxiety?

Coaching focuses on clients taking ownership to help improve their future behaviours. It focuses on goal setting and shifting individual viewpoints. 

Coaching can be an effective tool in helping some individuals manage stress and anxiety. 

Is Life Coaching the same as Counselling?

Both coaches and counsellors work on specific goals and changes.

However, some say that counsellors work on the “why” of the problem, whereas coaching focuses on the “how” to get out of the problem.  They also say that counsellors look at past issues and will help you move forward, coaches will look at the present and establish achievable goals for the future. Although both have different processes, goals and positive change for their clients are the result.

Can Life Coaches help with Confidence and Self-esteem issues?

Yes, we help clients to acknowledge their personal strengths and talents. To see their potential. To address and get rid of any negative self-talk. To set goals and take steps out of their comfort zone. When you have a true sense of self, a new positive you emerges.

Why is Life Coaching becoming so popular?

Today people are seeking to take responsibility for their lives. They admit in needing help to navigate through personal challenges or to get clarity about their next steps.  

Clients look for guidance in confidence, career change, self-worth and self-esteem, work-life balance, relationships, finding their purpose, health, and much more. People are no longer accepting the life they have been dealt, they are creating their life.

I would highly recommend Mary from YANA to anyone looking for a life coach. I completed a session of life coaching and also a happiness workshop with Mary. She is not only great at her job but is also a lovely person who you instantly feel comfortable with. I found it very easy to open up with her. You feel like you’re talking to a friend as she is sharing her experiences also. I have gained so much from Mary’s service, such as making positive changes in my life, an increase in my self-confidence, belief in myself and my abilities, stepping out of my comfort zone, setting new goals, giving me more focus about what I want out of life, appreciating all that I have in life..I think everyone would benefit from some form of life coaching. Highly recommend YANA.

Mary is very encouraging and fills you with confidence. I feel she can help people overcome any hurdle life throws, at both young and older people no matter how small. For me, she helped tremendously with presentations in college and handling exam stress. A real mammy figure !

Mary has facilitated 2 six week programmes to groups in Southend Family Resource Centre. The content was amazing and all the participates got so much out of it. Mary is a total pleasure to work with. and I look forward to working with her again

Siobhan H

I met Mary during a very dark time in my life and she honestly was the one to help me turn my life completely around. I have changed my mindset on things, learned a lot about myself and I now view the world in a different perspective. Mary has supported me while I have achieved my goals. I am a very different person now compared to the person I was when she first met me. She has been my cheerleader from the side-lines. Mary is person centred, kind and compassionate. More like a friend than a coach. She is real and relates to how you are feeling and your experiences. I would highly recommend for anyone to see Mary if they need some guidance. Thank you for everything Mary, you are an angel in disguise x

N ‘O B

Mary is a very good life coach. She listens very attentively and helps her clients build confidence. She helps them to keep moving forward. She’s an inspiration. I would highly recommend her.
