This is a new look for my website and my business Cumhacht Coaching & Consulting – Cumhacht (prounanced Koo'ackt) means strength or power, it is Irish Gaelic from the land of my ancestors. I like the feeling it gives me, and I hope it is the same feeling you will get when you work with me! Hi I’m Maeve O’Byrne, MA, ACC, CEC (Certified Executive Coach). Principal, Coach & Founder, welcome to my website. I’m passionate about easing people through this journey we call life. I coach and mentor individuals and groups supporting people as they excel. I believe that work and personal lives are one and the same, I don’t distinguish what I do as one or the other! My background is varied, I come from the NGO world, having worked 30 years in different parts of the World. More recently I was the Founding President & CEO of a Hospital Foundation on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, and prior to that I worked as a development consultant in BC and Alberta. I believe I have a unique perspective on people and the values that drive them. I love connecting people and partners, and I have an appreciation for and of international culture and diversity after living and working in the Middle East, Switzerland, UK, Ireland and Canada. I provide leadership coaching and consulting services to business, individuals, non-profit and Aboriginal groups on Vancouver Island and around the Country. I also understands that each client is unique and from time to time may suggest, with a client’s permission, to call upon other professionals to consult with them. My training and experience also allows me to provide support to a number of local and international organizations on a pro-bono basis, which also feeds my soul and satisfies the call of being of service to those who have lost, or need a voice.
Why work with Cumhacht Coaching?
I believe we all need support. Coach training stated that we all need to be heard, seen and understood - today more than ever that rings true. I have experienced that need to be heard, I understand how difficult it can be to meet challenges and find clarity in the noise that surrounds us. Time with me and the space I provide is a gift you can give yourself.
