I’m committed to continuing professional development and am accredited by both the International Coaching Federation (ACC level) and European Coaching and Mentoring Council (Senior Practitioner). In addition to my core coaching qualifications, I’ve niche certification in Executive, Wellbeing and Career Coaching. 

I bring all my experience, education and personality to my work as a coach. My style and approach reflect who I am as a person and a professional: warm, curious, solution-focussed and honest. If you work with me, I’ll guide, support and challenge you in your coaching journey, with unwavering belief in your power to succeed. 

When not working, I enjoy walking, recreational running, music festivals and family-time.

Seanie Meyler

People have within themselves the ability to achieve what they want to achieve. My role as a Coach is to both challenge them and then support them in taking the steps forward that may involve changing some behaviours, attitudes and perspectives. Working with people, either 1-1 or in a team, to help them set goals, guide actions, keep them on track and achieve top performance. As a former Tyrone County footballer and current Northern Ireland Masters athlete, I understand the importance of motivation as your desire to change must be greater than your desire to stay the same.

Seanie is an EMCC Accredited Coach. Advanced Diploma in Personal, Executive and Leadership Coaching, Advanced Diploma in Mental Health and Well Being Coaching, Certificate in Team Coaching, Introduction to Motivational Interviewing, Tutor with Kingstown College Dublin delivering their Advanced Diploma in Personal, Executive and Leadership Coaching
Coaching Focus
  • Providing leaders with the skills to be more coach-like in their day to day role with their staff.
  • “Change is external, Transition is internal” Supporting leaders with managing transition, building trust, handling conflict, gaining commitment, accepting accountability and ultimately achieving the results needed.
  • Challenging the belief systems of those who have experience and knowledge but are failing to take action themselves to grow their career.
  • Raising self-awareness in how they see the world and how this may be helping or hindering them in both work and life. Every experience changes the way we see ourselves and the world around us.
  • Supporting leaders on a journey of transformation by encouraging them to see alternative solutions
