The Coaching Project is founded and run by Theresa Coligan.
Theresa spent 18 successful years in the advertising, media and publishing industries, including more than 10 years at board level. Her last role was as Sales Director of Emap Magazines running a large department with a budget of £150m and a place on the Executive Board.
After 18 years in the corporate world, Theresa decided it was time for a new challenge. As the people-side of the business had always been her passion, she re-trained as a Coach and NLP Master Practitioner before launching her own Coaching consultancy in 2006.
Much of Theresa's coaching has been in the media industry with senior executives at The Guardian, MTV, Sony, the Comedy Channel, National Magazines and Vibrant Media to name a few. She also has a breadth of experience in other market sectors including finance, marketing, organisational psychology, training companies and OD consultancies etc.
Theresa is a certified coach accredited by the AC (Association for Coaching) and following their coaching standards and code of ethics. She is a Master Practitioner in NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and a member of the ANLP (Association for Neuro-Linguistic Programming). She is also a member of ISMA (the International Stress Management Association).
Her business experience means she understands the challenges of working in fast-paced, highly dynamic industries and can work at all levels from CEOs through to managers.
She is passionate about learning and personal development, undertakes regular CPD and has frequent quality assurance coaching supervision.
