Hi, I'm Mary Harker
If you're reading this, I'd first like to acknowledge you for taking this step forward for yourself. It takes courage to reach out for support or help with issues in your work, life or relationships.
When I work with clients I hear what a relief it is to have someone relatable and supportive that they can talk to about things.
A bit about me
I grew up in rural Ireland and the challenges I faced there set me on a path for understanding human behavior, relationships and our capacity for change. It's a genuine passion of mine.
There's nothing more exciting to me than seeing clients grow and learn new skills for the real world.
I have a Diploma in Life Coaching, I've studied Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) through the Beck Institute - the founders of CBT, have a BA(hons) in Communication studies, and have been a facilitator for teens, I'm also a qualified EFT practitioner. I've also volunteered for community organisations in New Zealand and abroad.
Growing up in a challenging family environment has set me on a path of personal growth that has lead me to doing the work I do today. It's inspired me to learn great communication and assertiveness skills, given me a lot of compassion for others, combined with a very down to earth, practical approach to change.
I love getting to know people and hearing their unique life stories.
There's nothing I enjoy more than seeing clients grow in confidence and finding their voices so they can express themselves more authentically in their lives and relationships.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
I came across Cognitive behavioral therapy when I was looking for a way to help clients to break free of unhealthy thinking patterns.
CBT is a fantastic way of being able to do that, giving you new ways of responding to life's challenges while building resilience.
I'm very excited to be able to share this and other modalities with my clients. For me it's about sharing with my clients practical tools and skills to transform their daily lives.
Real change happens from the inside out
I believe that real change happens from the inside out. I hope I have the opportunity to connect with you and help you make the changes you want in your life and relationships.
