Bio:

I am a Life Coach with Neuroscience. I am accredited with the World Association for Coaching with Neuroscience (WACN). Coaching with Neuroscience can help you to identify early warning signs of triggers or self-limiting beliefs that may be holding you back from taking desired actions. It helps people to learn about the neurochemicals that can be activated by our mental states, and about how we can self-regulate our emotions and build our self-confidence as a result of what we say to ourselves, by deep breathing and other coping mechanisms. It helps people to understand their values and to learn if they are living their lives aligned to their values. Coaching with neuroscience provides a solid base from which a client can explore their strengths and resources, their goals and aspirations.I am also a Counsellor and am accredited with the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP). I have over 25 years of experience working in the field of wellness and mental health in private practice.   My aim is to help people to build their confidence, to find their voice, achieve their goals and thrive personally and professionally. I live in Waterford and enjoy being in nature, listening to music and being with people. I work online and face-to-face.

Wrist-Assured
Bio:

A life-long passion for people and supporting them in times of need proved the catalyst for Sonia setting up her Wrist-Assured business. Following a successful career in sales and team management dating back to 2005, a family incident where a relative with dementia was lost for several hours finally prompted her to look at how she could put those special support skills to better use for those who needed it most.

In depth research and expert feedback indicated the clear need for a product and service to support families who have vulnerable loved ones with memory/health issues. That valuable knowledge coupled with Sonia’s personal experience resulted in the launch of an affordable, unique mechanism called Wrist-Assured in 2020. Wrist-Assured is a patented Awareness Medical ID bracelet connected to a 24/7 Emergency Helpline Service - when the Helpline is called by either the emergency services or a member of the public we immediately reach out to the Family/Carers/Nursing Home and take the necessary steps to ensure a swift reunion.

I can think of nothing more rewarding than contributing to making people’s lives better. A very personal life experience encouraged me to provide some level of solace to people affected by the day-to-day challenges presented by Dementia, Alzheimers, Autism and other memory or health related problems.

Sonia is based in Dundalk, has 3 grown-up children and 2 grandchildren.

Bio:

Mind Mommy Coaching helps Mothers get unstuck and achieve Mental Health Wellbeing.
I'm Laura a trained certified and accredited life coach, and most importantly a mommy.

Our self-care culture would make us believe that booking a spa day or taking a long bath is all you need to reset and feel “better”. However, as a mother I know it takes much more than that. No matter what stage they are at, mothers need support and an action plan to help them overcome the challenges (personal or professional) parenting has presented and in time pursue opportunities they now want to achieve given their new life position.

Becoming a mother is one of life’s greatest gift’s but it is also the greatest shift any human being will undertake. As you begin your motherhood journey, you are no longer the same person; your life is no longer your own. As your children grow, you face new challenges and opportunities in line with their growing needs.

Mind Mommy Coaching was set up to help mothers through this ever-evolving mental transition but most importantly to help mothers find themselves. Be it as a first-time mother in this new role, or a mother of teenagers, Mind Mommy Coaching can support you to overcome challenges, pursue opportunities and ultimately be the best version of yourself.

I help Mothers who are seeking change in their life to unlock their potential and convert that potential into an action plan that will enable them to achieve their goals.

My aim is to help you achieve the balance that is right for you, to find yourself again and bring your whole self to every aspect of your life x

The aim of Therapy and Training Corporate Workshops is to leave participants feeling energised and empowered about self-care and resilience as we continue to face into more unknowns in the future. Attendees will be left feeling that all human emotional responses to these abnormal times are completely normal, but they will also have the knowledge that there are things they can do to manage their thoughts and reactions and in turn prevent issues from escalating into more challenging mental health difficulties in the future.  
Customised events can be run online, inhouse or at a venue of your choice, government restrictions permitting.
Developing Self-Awareness, Resilience and Preventing Burnout are key aims of all workshops run by Therapy and Training.

Jane Buckley Writes
Bio:

A self-publishing author has just completed the second of four novels, Turmoil, Darkness (Light and Hope to follow 2022/23).  These novels detail the everyday realities of life from the early dark days of The Troubles in the '70s through to the Good Friday Peace Agreement in April 1998.

The first volume of Jane Buckley's Stones Corner Turmoil has garnered rave reviews following its February 2021 release. First-time author, Jane self-published after her manuscript was turned down by UK agents 'wary' of the subject matter.

Says Jane: "Some blatantly admitted, 'Never have, never will have anything to do with the Troubles in Northern Ireland, good luck!' I had to get published – somehow - and so I took a considerable risk. I cashed in some of my pension, ordered 2,000 copies of Turmoil, and developed my paperback ordering platform.  It allows me to sign my books and manage the whole printing and distribution process - which I love."

Jane adds: "Living in Derry in the ‘70s wasn't easy for any of us. It didn't get much better as an Irishwoman living in London in the 80s and ‘90s. One of my greatest frustrations was the lack of understanding from the people I met of why The Troubles began or continued over the decades. Some were particularly biased in their views by what they'd heard or read in the media – sadly, some still are."

Jane feels committed to helping readers from all over the globe learn more about The Troubles with her series of moving historically based novels.  As 'factional books', the stories cover many issues encountered by both sides of the sectarian divide, including conflict, cruelty, divided loyalties, strong family ties, gallow humour and star-crossed
lovers.

"I'd never written anything like it in my life, but I knew I had to see it in its completed form. I've received terrific reviews for Turmoil, and many readers have ordered the second volume, Darkness. My goal is to write stories that will inform not just the younger generation but people from all over the world through historically based fiction. I hope they read and gain a better understanding of what it was like to live through those difficult days from
both sides of the divide. I want everyone to know we are proud, not just as people, but as a country in the way we have evolved for the benefit of all following The Troubles."  

Jane is 'determined' to promote and spread the word of her novels to change the perception of Northern Ireland. "I’ve friends from England and other parts of the world, who'd never been to the North before and who admitted they were afraid to travel here, now visit. The problem is since they’ve been, they keep coming back! They love it!"

After researching and then writing Darkness, I found it challenging to remain objective. As a
result, Darkness, like Turmoil, has proved to be a realistic tale based on actual events.

A taste of Turmoil Reviews:

"I would highly recommend reading this book to anyone who lived through "The Troubles," in Northern Ireland, or whose parents did, or anyone else with interest in Irish History, or even anyone who also likes a GOOD THRILLER. Although the book is fictional, it is very historically accurate & an addictive read."

"Loved it! Shows what life in Derry at one of the worst times in its history was like for all who lived there.  I can't wait to read the follow-up!"

"Great read; enjoyed all the characters; it all felt so real descriptions of the people, places scenes totally fantastic. Can't wait for the second book to come out eagerly waiting to find out the next chapters. 10 out of 10"

"I would highly recommend this novel to anyone. It was absolutely thrilling, gripping and often hard-hitting. I have always loved visiting Ireland and Northern Ireland in particular. But as an English lady born and, bred I never really understood what the Troubles were all about. I really do believe that this novel has given me a much greater insight as to what was happening in Northern Ireland during that period. And my goodness, it was both shocking and brutal."

ABOUT STONES CORNER: TURMOIL Volume 1

A Catholic girl from the Bogside and the Protestant heir to a prominent local employer.

Meanwhile, Robert, newly recruited to British undercover forces, is closing in on a terrorist strike in the heart of the city centre. In the backdrop are two opposing psychopaths set on the same destructive and violent path and one that can only conclude in nothing but a tumultuous and fateful encounter.

ABOUT STONES CORNER: DARKNESS Volume 2

Darkness follows the next instalment from author Jane Buckley's Stones Corner, Turmoil. In the early '70s, considered the darkest years of the Troubles in Northern Ireland, it reveals the catastrophic fall-out from the doomed Derry City Hotel meeting.

The impact of the disaster follows the lives of so many, from the wealthy, vibrant James Henderson to the love-struck factory girl Caitlin McLaughlin and her family.

The guerrilla war in the province rages as it extends to mainland Britain and the Irish Republic.  Darkness takes us from the dank hellhole of the overpopulated Victorian Armagh Women's Gaol to London's lavish, opulent private clubs.

An unmerciful and harrowing tale, it endeavours to illustrate what life was like for Ulster's war-torn, sectarian communities. It captures a story of conflict, survival of the fittest, and victims who attempt to live and love against a background of chaos and carnage.

Hope is deemed lost and forgotten until the power of love, truth, and justice steps in to create Light and a new beginning.

ABOUT JANE

Jane Buckley was born in Derry/ Londonderry, Northern Ireland, in the late 60s and is the author of the Stones Corner Volume 1, Turmoil. Like many of her generation, she had to leave to find work elsewhere. At the naïve age of 17, she moved to London, where she lived and worked for over twenty-five years before moving to Nice, France.

Along with her husband John (born in Cork, Ireland), they finally returned home in 2017 and lived in Donegal. They love it but had forgotten how unpredictable the weather is!

Since Jane lived predominantly in London throughout the awful time that is known as "The Troubles", it was apparent then – and still is today – that not all the facts of the horrific events in Ulster – perpetrated on every side by the warring factions – were presented in an accurate and unbiased way. This was especially true in mainland Britain.

Over recent years, the couple recognised that many of the people they'd been fortunate enough to meet on their travels worldwide didn't understand why or how the conflict here in the North of Ireland began and why it continued for three decades. Jane found this particularly frustrating and decided to take it upon herself to inform them and others by writing a historical fiction series based on her own childhood experiences and around events from this horrific period in Ireland's history.

She says writing was a frightening project at first, given she'd never written anything substantial before but, being Jane, she'd write not just one novel, but a quartet, hence Turmoil, Darkness, Light and Hope!

Jane believes that we need to move on from "The Troubles" as a country while never forgetting how and why they occurred. In recognition of the hardship and suffering endured by so many of our friends, family, and neighbours, we should continue to embrace the healing and reconciliation process.

BIOGRAPHY BY JENNIFER GOFF, B.A., M.A.
ART & DESIGN HISTORIAN
NATIONAL MUSEUM OF IRELAND

Jenny McCarthy is an established contemporary Irish artist who lives and works in the remote west Kerry village of Ventry on the very edge of Ireland’s west coast.  Jennys’ paintings are oil on canvas and her works include the dramatic scenery where she lives.  More technical works such as the Navigator series feature detailed paintings of sailboats and navigational instruments.  She employs a limited palette to create a purer result and is influenced by Monet for colour and by Turner, for light.

Throughout her career, Jenny McCarthy has remained faithful to the classical tradition of landscape painting – but with a twist. Her animated nimbus skies, low horizon, and stripes of equanimous sands are her signature style. Her work is informed by naturalism and optical verisimilitude – interwoven with touches of cubist brilliance. Illuminate reveals a collection of work where the less hermetic world of West Kerry opens up before us.

The frenetic energy and constraints of our daily lives are resolved in the harmony of McCarthy’s creations. The luminous reflection and illumination of a purer world is the dominant notion in these wonderful crystalline paintings. In their colours and forms they delicately linger between abstraction and objectivity.

A traditionalist and an avant gardist in one, her paintings invoke a distant past, yet in their artistic sensibility they are firmly rooted in the contemporary. Touched with classical undertones her unique style displays knowledge of colour theories through her limitation of the palette. At times her methodology changes from Abstraction to Cubism, through the distillation of form as in Skellig Diptych and the fragmentation of shapes seen in Ventry Beach Night Storm. The former painting is the first diptych McCarthy completed. Concerned that the physical division of the painting would break the visual continuity of the theme, McCarthy abstracts the rock face.

Through her treatment of the low horizon and the overall silver gray tonality of the light, unified by the whiteness of the sky, she subtlety interacts the islands. This pictorial device successfully secures the subject matter of the paintings, integrating them as one.  In Ventry Beach and Approaching Rain McCarthy foregoes description in favour of pure effect where the paintings are visually framed by the animated blackness of the sinister skies. This is pictorial architecture at its best.

My study of Neuroscience Coaching and Leadership from, The Optimind Institute, underpins everything I do. My specialisms included Neuro Spirituality, Neuro Health, Neuro Relationships, and Neuro Entrepreneurship.

Coaching is a one-to one relationship. It is a way of supporting the individual in a non-directive way. Coaching supports you to identify your goals, explore the options and the actions to take to reach those goals.
A NeuroCoach is a coach who has in-depth knowledge on brain science training that can be used to explain and/or enhance coaching strategies.
By understanding your brain and mind, you can improve your brain health, thought patterns, habits, decision-making, relationships, emotional brain, productivity and presence.

Coaching will:

*Help you to clarify exactly what it is that you want to achieve
*Evaluate how possible it is to achieve it
*Help you to identify any obstacles you may have to overcome along the way
*Look at all your options and support you to take action to achieve those
 important goals

Leaving home several years later, with my 7 children as we left a physically and emotionally abusive environment to become homeless for two months, was one of the hardest things that I ever did. During this time, I used my craft and creativity to get through a very stressful situation.

Today I teach social media skills in a stress free way to help other creative business owners - drawing on my own experiences  - both successful and not so successful!
I teach a simple 6-step framework to keep your creative business and your social media simple and stress-free, and I am dedicated to creating communities that help, support and lift each other.

I work from home as a busy mum of 7, also caring for one of my children who is disabled and currently home educated.

Creativity is Spirituality
Bio:

I am an artist, musician, writer, and business development consultant residing in beautiful West Waterford. My career spans over 20 years in media, marketing, and sales, and now I am focused on bringing deep spiritual presence into my life and the lives of those I touch.

If I had to sum up myself in one word, I would tell you that I am an activator.

Throughout my career, I have had a front row seat to the transformative energy available to us all in the creative process. I have seen homeless people use their artistic abilities to get off the streets. I have seen whole movements arise from conversations between artists and caring people who are passionate about making an impact on their community.

The greatest miracles I’ve ever witnessed, however, were when individuals in my life have made a conscious choice to take responsibility for their own evolution. In my own journey, I have lovingly collected the necessary knowledge and tools to make this transformation available to anyone who is ready.

Life is precious - let's make the most of it!

I love my life and wish everyone felt that way.  Knowing this led me to become a Life Coach, so I can help people to find their way to a life they truly love.

I support my clients without judgment, so they can speak openly and confidentially as I help them to understand what they want from life, how to get what they want and importantly develop a better understanding of themselves.  

One of the things I love to help people with is their self-esteem.  It has a huge impact on how we see ourselves and the world around us.  The more people I can help to feel truly happy being themselves, the better.  No more caring too much about what others think of you; no more comparing yourself to others and feeling inferior; and instead feeling happy being you.  This increases our ability to be kinder to others, try things even if they're scary, be confident in yourself and say 'no' when that's what feels right.  This is a journey I've experienced personally over many years and coaching is a way of helping others to get there quicker.

We spend a lot of time at work - let's enjoy what we do!

Having noticed some of my early clients finding a new perspective and making changes in their careers, I added career coaching to my offer.  This includes planning your career; getting off to a great start in your new role; and my 6-week Positive Career Habits group programme.  For my group sessions, I'm able to draw on my (almost) 20 years of experience in management and leadership roles and my passion for continuous learning and development, as well as my coaching expertise (accredited by the International Coaching Federation).

I live in North West England with my wonderful husband Rich and our amazing son Jack.  Some of the things I do for fun are Metafit, dancing, holidays (I'm looking forward to having those again) and spending time with friends and family.

Hi, My name is Elaine Dowling and I teach facial exercises.  My web site is www.facefit.ie.  I work from my home in Rosslare, Wexford and  the classes that I currently offer are on zoom. These classes take the form of 1:1 classes and weekly  group classes. I studied facial  exercises with Eve Fraser in London in 2013 and I teach all four levels of the Eve Fraser method. I have found facial exercises to be very  helpful in keeping the face and neck vital and alive as the body grows older. Practicing  facial exercises regularly helps to remove some of the stress and strain that accumulates in our faces, it keeps the facial muscles strong and lifted, keeps the eyes more open and improves the jaw line.

I also teach Pilates, offering a wide variety of classes to both young and old with an emphasis on keeping the body strong and healthy as we grow older.
I especially enjoy facilitating Mummy and Baby classes and helping young mums to come together and share their experiences.

I am also a keen writer with a host of unpublished works at home.

Hi, My name is Mairead Molloy. I am originally from Wexford. I have lived in Cannes France for the last 25 years and work as a relationship Psychologist.

I originally moved to Cannes, as I bought a hotel here having studied Hotel Mgmt in Dublin. After I sold the hotel, I went to London where I studied Psychology and International Criminal Law and then begin to work with relationships, ( no connections with law and relationships - I just enjoy the work) I continued my studies and trained as a Master Practitioner in Eating Disorders as I found a correlation within our personal relationships, diet and nutrition and how they are affected by our lifestyle choices.

About my work..

I have expert knowledge in human relationships, in particular the know-how and skills to ask the right questions, hear the answers and so get to the heart of each person I see.

If things go wrong and you need a helping hand and a sympathetic ear, or you simply need to share, then that is where I come in. I will talk to you one-on-one, in complete confidence, and I will listen to what you say. More important, I will hear what you don’t say too. That is the benefit of experience.

I help all kinds of people in all kinds of situations. If you are in a new relationship, a long-term relationship, or not in a relationship at the moment, have a family issue etc, I can support you through the journey, from major relationship crisis to smaller issues that are holding you back or making you unhappy.

Business:
Lovely Things
Bio:

Hello! This is Laura from ‘Lovely Things’ here.
So, I am originally from Waterford, living in Dublin and am a parent of 3 young kids who are always on the go and growing far too fast.  When our youngest, Grace, was born nearly 3 years ago, I was feeding her early into the morning when I half watched a horrible video of waves of plastic washing up on the shore of a faraway beach. The next day, I was sure it was a sleep deprived dream but I checked my phone and, sure enough, it was real. It was in that moment, looking at my new baby, that I decided that I would try and figure out what changes I could make to do my small part to help in the challenges in the environment all around us.

At the start, I felt totally overwhelmed. I didn’t know where to start. Then I had a real light bulb moment as I tried to wedge yet another lovely new outfit into my kids’ wardrobes. I realised that so many of these clothes were not worn at all or worn once, twice or maybe a handful of times and thought, ‘what am I doing?’ These could be passed on to other kids who would could wear them and look cute, cool, adorable, awesome or amazing and have a real impact on the world around my family and community by reducing our waste and our environmental footprint.
I started to buy preloved clothes from other parents and they were such lovely things! The quality, range and value were brilliant but I found it very time consuming. Selling our preloved kid’s clothes was a lot of work but I loved sending the packages off to other parents where our preloved would be re-loved and be enjoyed again (and again).

I just wished that sustainable clothes shopping was easier and the idea of ‘Lovely Things’ was born. ‘Lovely Things’ is just that - an ethical, quality focussed, reliable, Irish family business who would not sell clothes that they would not dress their own kids in. Lovely Things takes the hassle out of a more sustainable way of dressing our kids in beautiful quality clothes.

Check out our website www.lovelythings.ie, find us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Lovely-Things-109636847522201 on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/lovelythingsbylaura/ and on Twitter @LovelyThings_ie

Who are we?
Lovely Things is a new family business who are passionate about sustainability, quality and service. As parents ourselves, we want to create a hassle-free way to buy beautiful, quality preloved clothes for kids aged 0-12 in Ireland.

Lovely Things is quality focussed, reliable and ethical. If we wouldn’t dress our own kids in it, we won’t sell it, if it creates waste, we won’t do it and we will never, ever use plastic to send anything to you.

What do we do?
Lovely Things offer a 'one stop shop' selling excellent quality and brilliant value preloved clothes from all your favourite kids’ brands. Everything is sustainably sourced in Ireland.

Lovely Things provide a hassle-free service to purchase your great quality kids' clothes. This offers a return on your investment and frees up your valuable space. By selling to Lovely Things you know you are part of a circular economy to extend the life of kids’ clothing, reduce its carbon footprint and support an Irish business.

Who are our clients?
You! Anyone who buys great quality clothes for kids aged 0-12 in Ireland. That means parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles, friends of anyone who has had a baby – basically anyone!

Do Lovely Things accept donations as well as buying clothes from you?
Yes! We are delighted to accept donations of great quality kids’ clothing. We will have a full Social Responsibility Programme. Lovely Things support 3 great Irish charities and voluntary groups in respect of donated items sold by us through our donation commitment. We will be announcing the full details of our programme and donation commitment later in 2020. If you would like to be added to our mailing list or have a query about selling your great quality kids’ clothes, please complete the contact form and we will be in touch with you.

Hoopla Focal
Bio:

I launched Hoopla Focal to help people celebrate and express themselves through our beautiful Irish language. I hand-embroider cúpla focal in Irish on to sustainably and ethically made sweatshirts and bags. Customers can customise one of my designs, or I can work with them to create a completely bespoke piece that is unique to them.

I've taken great care to chose the sustainable and ethical option at every stage of my business. All the sweatshirts and bags I embroider are made from 100% recycled organic cotton and recycled polyester. There are 12 recycled plastic bottles in every sweatshirt! The factory in which they are manufactured is powered by renewable energy, and the cotton farming and recycling take place locally, to reduce the carbon footprint. The cotton is organically grown, and the farmers forgo the use of pesticides in favour of more traditional and eco-friendly methods. 95% of the water used for irrigation is supplied naturally by monsoon rainfall. The sweatshirts and bags are also certified by the Fair Wear Foundation, which guarantees that factory workers earn and fair wage and work in safe conditions. All my packaging is made from recycled materials, and is biodegradable.

My initial years while studying were spent learning all aspects of business from my dad who was self employed with a staff of over 300. I always say everyone has a story, my dad died at 69 on the operating table while under going a triple bypass. Yes he was stressed but it was a tablet for a tablet etc. My qualifications are in business development, strength and conditioning and nutrition and health. Preventative, proactive healthcare is the way of the future through digi-health platforms, health screening and education and empowerment. Health and Fitness Ireland was established 4 months after dad died.

Health and Fitness Ireland is now Ireland's leading mental and physical health education company in schools and clubs. Health and Wellness International was established last year as many of the corporates we are partnered with have a large number of staff working globally. HAWI is a Global Proactive Corporate Health and Wellness Company. We now have a team of 30 highly qualified and experienced staff that include psychotherapists, psychologists, doctors, nurses, sports scientists, nutritionists, neuromuscular therapists and metabolic health technicians. At HAWI we protect the health of your company i.e. Structural Health, (company) Physical Health (company & employee) Mental Health (employee)

To say we are passionate about the world of proactive health is an understatement. The HAWI/HFI world is an amazing one that creates and supports realistic change to the mental and physical health of people of all ages. This in turn makes people more present at work, school, home or in sport, thus of course making their world and yours more productive and profitable in many ways.

Bio:

I am a Life Coach based in Donegal and offer a space where clients can explore their life, identify the changes they want to make to make their life more happy and fulfilling, clarity goals, and work towards creating the life that they want. I have been involved in personal development and growth for three decades and learnt so much from wonderful wise teachers, training, authors and then over time developed my own realisations and insights.

I am a tapping coach, I use EFT, a tapping process, in my coaching sessions. It is a powerful way to shift thoughts, beliefs and behaviours that may be holding someone back. It can really go to the core of issues causing clients' stress. At the core of my work is empathy and compassion.  I have had depression for a lot of my adult life,  and self compassion was what really made a difference in my healing. I am passionate about raising awareness about the benefits of self compassion and encouraging people to be kind and loving to themselves. If people are kinder to themselves, they then  find relationships with others easier and life in general more sweeter. They also are more inclined to feel able to share their talents and skills with the world. "As we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fears, our presence automatically liberates other". ( Marianne Williamson)


Over a series of sessions, I want my clients to leave feeling happier and more relaxed in themselves, empowered to go out into the world, reach their potential and be their best self. I am also available for personal development workshops and courses. I can offer specific courses and then also tailor a course to meet the needs of a group or project.
