Our Approach

Dúchas Approach

The Dúchas mission is to see clients move powerfully forward with renewed focus, clarity and confidence making the changes that they want with excitement and ease. We seek to create sessions that are engaging, dynamic, challenging but enjoyable; structured to suit the individual and taking place face to face at a convenient location. Coaching begins with assessment to clarify the individual’s needs and goals. Having agreed the objectives, a variety of methods and techniques are used (the process can depend on the Coach and on the situation) to draw out a strategy for the individual to move in the chosen direction.

Ongoing feedback, our three critical steps to success together with post coaching evaluation ensures that Dúchas personal coaching has a desired and lasting positive impact. In this way both individual and organisations benefit from removing personal barriers to excellence.

Patricia Ryall – Principal
“I am comfortable and effective in working at depth with clients resolving inner conflict while working with limiting beliefs to built on potential and create positive future growth. While the client primarily leads the agenda, I may notice patterns and blocks to progression and achievement and will challenge or enquire about these in order to change behaviours and achieve goals. Normally I use several coaching models where relevant and applicable including the ‘inner game’, ‘Grow’, the more behavioural approach of Skiffington and Zeus and psychological models such as Gestalt. However I regard models as coaching tools only and while useful remain aware that the key to effective coaching is developing a strong relationship with the client, listening with empathy and asking effective questions whilst also measuring results.”


Organisations benefit through a skilfully constructed program tailored to individual needs but carefully aligned to the global strategic objectives of the company achieving real and tangible results for both individual and company.
