The Personal Bio

Dearbhalla is a busy mum of four – running her own business, being a mum, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, and everything else! People often ask her how does she do it all. Her answer is purpose and passion. And a good five year plan to keep her on track.


Never has the pace of change and demands on our time been as intense. Dearbhalla is passionate about making a difference, about helping people to find the clarity and perspective that allows them to step up, step back and sometimes slow down. Creating space to stop, reflect and re-focus is at the core how Dearbhalla lives, loves and works.


She loves planning and organising, bringing clarity and structure and she is never far from a flip chart, post-its or a white board – even in the kitchen! 


She loves the power of the random conversation and particularly enjoys connecting with and connecting people, often women, who are striving to succeed, on their terms, every day
