Welcome to Myndful Dublin Life Coaching & Training Centre, My name is Ray Kinsella and I am delighted you are here! Feel free to check out my LinkedIn profile.
My coaching history & qualifications
I am a certified Coach, Trainer & Facilitator. I am educated in Coaching Psychology (MSc.), Personal & Executive Coaching (Dip.), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (Certified), Training and Group Facilitation. I also hold a BSc. in Computing Science.
I am an experienced in Life Coaching, Trainer and Change Consultant with over 20 years real world experience. I combine powerful coaching psychological approaches with change expertise to deliver successful change outcomes.
I coach & train everyone from high potential intern developers to executives to c-suite leaders, within start-ups, established fintechs and public sector, to name a few.
I began my career in change management within the technology consulting industry. From the earliest point in my career I was acutely aware that change was ever present in life and business. However it is often avoided, delayed or even feared by organisations and the people they employ.
My approach to coaching
The traditional approach to dealing with change is the ‘carrot and stick’ approach. Originally popularised during the industrial revolution to motivate employees into an action that they know must to performed, but may not be naturally inclined to do so.
A Carrot (positive pressure) of a promotion if you work long hours to get the latest ‘big project’ delivered. A stick (negative pressure) of sacking if you do not work long hours to get the latest ‘big project’ delivered.
As a life coach, my role is not ‘command and control’ and use of the ‘carrot and stick’ approach to implementing change. I can not force people to change, even if they know it is necessary. Instead, through coaching, I find effective ways to tap into people’s intrinsic desire for change.
Tap into your true motivations
Human adults are fascinating creatures. To ignite change, we must learn new behaviours. In order to learn, we must to be personally motivated to do so.
According to Malcolm Knowles (the father of adult learning theory) adults are motivated towards change by intrinsic motivation as they grow and mature. Meaning adults prefer to do an activity for its inherent satisfaction rather than for some separable (positive or negative) consequence.
Life Coaching is the key to tapping into our intrinsic motivations to learn. And with that learning comes desired change. Renowned psychologist Carl Rogers popularised the person-centred approach to therapy. He argued that all human adults possess within themselves the capacity to reach their own potential. It is that concept that underpins my approach to life coaching.
Let Life Coaching work for you
From that first gulp of oxygen we inhale at birth, our arms are open to a new world of possibilities ahead of us. Dreams and reality are interchangeable and impossible is nothing. Our potential is limitless.
However, along our life journey we can sometimes learn to limit ourselves and forget about our endless potential, distracted by limiting beliefs and self sabotage. That’s where the power life coaching comes in!
Life coaching will help you answer:
- What you value most in your life?
- What in your current reality you want to change for the better?
- What obstacles exist that have proven too high to climb in the past alone?
- Working with me, what new ways of thinking can you adopt to support the changes you want to make in your life?
At Myndful Life Coaching we are dedicated to partnering with you on your journey to achieving the goals that are most important to you.
