What people say about coaching with Patricia:
Carol Leland, Johnson & Johnson, August 30, 2012
Great Results, Expert, High Integrity. I would highly recommend Dúchas Coaching and Training to any business wishing to optimize the leadership and professional potential of its workforce. I recently worked with Dúchas Coaching and Training as part of a European department wide executive coaching initiative. Through a skilfully constructed program tailored to individual needs but carefully aligned to the global strategic objectives of the company, Patricia Ryall helped me to successfully navigate the personal and professional challenge of a transition from legal advisor to global business partner and to develop the confidence and self awareness to continue to grow and develop in that role (and to enjoy it more!). Patricia’s skill, enthusiasm and commitment to achieving real and tangible results for both individual and company is inspiring and I would expect that any company small or large, local or international (including law firms!) would benefit from an executive coaching program with Dúchas Coaching and Training.

Patricia is an extremely sharp and observant coach. Her approach helped to open a few doors in my head and showed me that it is possible to do things my own way. I currently look forward to seeking new business with some of her instruction in mind.

Cross Cultural coaching
Patricia is a knowledgeable coach, being able to understand you in a very short period. She finds the right balance between questioning as a coach and helping you to find your own advice. This makes you not only realize the reason why you encounter certain issues, but also drives you to do something about it and change your behaviour.
Nora Kaye, Senior Executive Officer
I have participated in a number of coaching sessions with Ms. Patricia Ryall of Dúchas Coaching and Training and can confirm that I found these sessions to be of immense benefit, particularly in focusing my career and providing me with a framework on which to build and develop my competencies. Of particular interest was the skillful way Ms. Ryall used to focus my thoughts and by probing certain issues, identified gaps and weaker areas which we then addressed. By working on these weaker areas through an agreed framework, my confidence in decision making, leadership and change management at a senior level in a complex environment improved immensely. I would highly recommend the expertise of Ms. Ryall to people who are seeking direction in their careers and more effectiveness in developing their
Gail Sussman Miller, Chicago, Illinois U.S.A.
Patricia is a great coach, talented at listening carefully, picking up signals, staying with me even when I get slippery, and finding ways to call me forth to step into more and more of my power. Patricia is gentle but skilled at holding me to my best effort of self-care, forward action, and commitment. She has bridged the gap in distance from her office in Ireland to my office in the United States with an appreciation for our great distance and our time and cultural differences so smoothly. I highly recommend Patricia as an inspiring coach.
Through coaching, Patricia helped me to become re-acquainted with a former self, a more dynamic confident me. Coaching reached the fun-loving tall poppy in me; I learnt that creating an energized zone around me was powerful and empowering for both me and my family and friends. I am stronger by recognizing and trusting the strength in others, letting go to achieve more.
Karen Reynolds, IT specialist, Career Coaching
Coaching helped me to see life differently, to appreciate myself more and to look into the future with pride. I’ll use it every moment of the day for the rest of my life because it’s more about how I feel inside that anything outwardly
Laura Regan, Sales Rep, Career Changer
This particular opportunity was too good to pass up, and I am so happy that I have done it. To anyone else, my life looks very similar to how it looked six weeks ago, but the changes in my attitude have been phenomenal. I have come from being very confused and directionless about my career to having much more clarity and positivism, and having a specific direction to go in. This positivism has rubbed off in other areas of my life as well, and I feel in such a strong position, as I know what changes I need to make and I now have all the skills to see those changes through.
Amy O’Connell, Nutritionist
Coaching gave me deadlines that I had to get things done by, and as I was doing things for my coach, as well as myself, I did things that I would possibly have put off indefinitely had I not been coached.
Patricia Ryall is a great coach and a great person. Her warmth and empathy get right to the heart of her clients’ desires. Her direct and caring feedback help her clients build plans that work and her passionate and unwavering belief in her clients sustains and nurtures their transformation.
