About this Speaker
I am Mary MacRory, a Life Coach and Business Coach who has a solid, financial, accounting and business background. I provide effective coaching, both in life and in business (including at executive level) combined with using holistic therapies. I enable clients to see more clearly and to then create a practical, feasible and effective plan to attain goals in any sphere of career, business, or personal life. I am married, have two adult children, love nature and animals - most especially my 4 cats and my shared dog!
To help you, I like to use humour, empathy, compassion, and inspiration, backed up by my professional experience, qualifications, and education. This is particularly so in business (as a qualified accountant having worked at a senior director level in SMEs and in US MNCs e.g. GE, Alcoa and in several business start-up roles). I can enable you to get to where you want to be and you will benefit from the practical, sound business experience and proven track record that I can share with you. I have walked that walk, successfully!
The whole coaching process can be easier and more fun than people imagine. A first step is often, releasing the emotional blocks that may be holding you back personally or professionally. There is no need to struggle. You have nothing to lose except your current dissatisfaction.
To practically enable people, especially women, to find more success and joy in their personal and professional lives, I recently wrote a book called "Women, Work and Wellness" (published Dec 2018). It combines practical tips, tools and techniques based upon my own experience of personal and working life, combined with my coaching and mentoring knowledge and that of several reputable research studies e.g. the scientifically proven benefits of meditation.
I am a joint Honours B Sc. graduate and a senior level accountant of 40 years – so possess a wealth of sound, proven and practical business, management, and financial experience. I changed direction and qualified as a coach in 3 modalities in 2016 (Life Coaching, NLP and QTT) and in 2018, continuing upon my holistic learning path, I attained Reiki Master status. I originally started on this journey purely for myself but the encouragement from fellow therapists and my ongoing success with ex-work colleagues and other people who benefited from my guidance, made me realise, I could help others still stuck in the same rut that I too, had been in. I am a firm believer in the power of positive thinking, mindfulness, and the therapeutic effects of nature. You can always live presently whilst still visualising dreams, goals, and future. This philosophy aligns with my talk " Connection with Self and Nature". These connections are good for you and for business! Especially in these difficult COVID times.
