Colette’s values are based on mutual respect and a sense of integrity, in a confidential, non-judgmental environment. To observe a coachee moving forward and flourishing is hugely rewarding for Colette, and she finds it a privilege that a coachee trusts her and shares their story with her. To date, Colette has successfully coached a number of UCC staff.

“From acorns to mighty oaks, coaching can be transformative, I’m here to enable you to unlock your potential and become the best version of yourself”. Colette O’Sullivan, ACE.
