Theresa Coligan

Theresa has worked as an Executive Coach for over a decade and set up her latest venture, The Coaching Project, in 2013. Prior to this she spent 18 years in the advertising industry with many of those at Board and Executive Board level.

Her main passion is one-to-one Executive Coaching and she specialises in Leadership Development, Resilience & Stress Management and Emotional Intelligence. She also enjoys working with founders and directors of SMEs and start-ups in a coaching/mentoring capacity to help them grow their businesses and deal with the inevitable challenges and pressures that come from operating at this level.

Theresa is a highly collaborative, outcome-driven coach who quickly establishes rapport with her clients due to her warmth, openness and honesty. She is very supportive but can also be direct when appropriate challenging clients’ thinking and behaviour and holding them to account on their commitments. Her natural sense of humour is used to good effect in these circumstances.

Theresa is an accredited Coach with the Association for Coaching and a Master Practitioner in NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming). She is also a certified Emotional Intelligence assessor (EQ-i 2.0/EQ360), an accredited practitioner in the thinking styles diagnostic, the HBDI (Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument) and a certified Wraw practitioner, a psychometric analysing Workplace Resilience and Wellbeing. Last, but not least, she is certified in Judith Glasier’s Conversational Intelligence®.
