Previous clients have described their experience of a coaching retreat at Fuchsia Lane Farm as:

In choosing to work with Niall was one of the wisest, most empowering decisions I have ever made. From our initial phone call Niall offered a supportive reflective strength that established a manner of working which ensured I was able to move forward in a way that I was secure with. Niall’s ability to “hold” my sense of “not knowing” what direction my personal and professional life was going offered me the freedom to safely explore as many possibilities as I wanted, safe in the knowledge that what I came in with would not be damaged or broken further but that the hope of change would be created in the meeting. Niall’s skill of allowing the client set the pace, set the agenda and explore their own world, truly nurtures a person to reach their full potential. … a little over a year has passed and I have rediscovered what it means to be me. I have a strong sense of direction. I am proud of the work that I do and I am confident in who I am as a person  Emer Meighan – Programme Manager Disabilities NGO

I decided to work with Niall for a full day and it was one of the best decisions I have made for myself and the business in seven years. Niall is … a master at nurturing, encouraging and expecting you to direct and lead the agenda. The result of this “Pure” Coaching approach was that I experienced profound learning’s and insights, crystalised intentionality around my business purpose and goals, unblocked inner obstacles, built up my own internal resources and had fun doing all of that too.

Another unique facet of Niall’s work is the dimension of landscape and environment that he brings in to his work through the opportunity to be coached at the rural location he has created in Tipperary. We worked together in nature at various intervals throughout the day, and the tranquil and beautiful setting added a cathartic and transformative quality to the work.   Nadine McCarthy – Leadership Development & Executive Coach

After the sale of my business I realized I needed career coaching to re-establish my entrepreneurial spirit and get me headed back on a clear path again. I knew I wanted a calm setting far away from the stress and daily pressures of Germany including an English speaking coach who would listen emphatically and make me find my own answers. And in my search I discovered Niall Heenan in Terryglass, Ireland who filled all of these criteria. I stayed in one of his cottages and he coached me on my business ideas while I continued my writing and walked through the rural countryside.

Niall’s approach is “ non- invasive” – meaning, he allowed me to choose my own topic, set my own pace and discover my own answers. He guides; he doesn’t direct and that is what made our sessions so productive.  Kim Moke Stage Consult Limited, Germany



Guests staying at our cottages can avail of a coaching experience over a weekend or longer stay. Niall Heenan is a qualified, award winning coach who works with people in the areas of career and personal change, increased effectiveness and business planning.

Niall’s philosophy of coaching is to create trust which allows the client to work on deep and sensitive issues. Observers and clients have described this as being an ’emotionally intelligent’ coach.

Coaching can help people create deeper understandings for themselves, their businesses or families. This occurs through allowing clients, when they wish, to explore deep and sensitive issues in a very safe and secure manner. This results in clarity for the client and they use this clarity to progress and take action.

The coaching experience takes place at prearranged times over the weekend or week and provides for time for the client to have the time to reflect, consider and journal their experiences. A typical weekend would consist of two sessions of about 1.5 hours each while a week long stay would allow for increased engagement.
