Nina Byrne, Dandelion Coaching | Life coaching in Whitley Bay

Life, Career, Executive & Organisational Coaching

I coach individuals and organisations. I work with people from all walks of life to help them overcome challenges in their personal or professional life, to help them find purpose, ease and joy.

Coaching offers a unique way to reconnect with yourself, discover what may be holding you back and get you to where you want to be.

If you’re curious about what I can offer you, get in touch for a free 30 minute consultation.

I’m based in Whitley Bay and coach face to face (in and around Newcastle, North Tyneside and the wider north east) and via Zoom or phone if you prefer or live further away. Sessions can also be arranged outdoors, including along the beautiful north east coastline.

Life Coaching

Find a way forward in an area of your personal life in which you feel stuck. Everyone experiences times of change and transition, perhaps you’re at the beginning a new life chapter. Coaching can help you work out where you want to be, and how best to get there.

Executive Coaching

Leaders and senior executives really benefit from the confidential and thought-provoking space that coaching provides. You may discover what kind of leader you are, uncover your strengths or overcome a current challenge. I specialise in working with leaders in the creative and charitable sectors.

Career Coaching

You may be looking for a change in direction or working out your next move within an existing role or organisation. We’ll look at where you are now, where you want to be and work out the steps you’ll take to get there.

Organisational Coaching

Highly personalised coaching packages provide teams and individuals with a reflective space to identify and work towards individual and shared goals supporting the aims, efficacy and wellbeing of the organisation and its people. A former Head of Marketing in the north east arts sector, I specialise in working with creative and charitable organisations.

New Chapters

Do you want your next life chapter to be your best yet? During this longer-term coaching relationship, we’ll work together across 10 sessions to shine a light on some of life’s bigger questions. What is it that you want to do next with your one precious life? Is there something you’ve always wanted to do, and if so, what’s holding you back? Get more in-tune with yourself, uncover your values and use your unique strengths to design your future.

Fresh Perspectives

The Fresh Perspectives package is a great way to gain clarity and a new perspective on a current challenge, where you may feel stuck at work or home. I’ll work with you over four sessions, to understand your current dilemma, explore your options and put a plan in place to move forward confidently.

Coaching For Organisations

I offer support to organisations, through tailor-made group sessions and 1:1 coaching. I’ll work with you to design a bespoke solution, including bringing in other coaches with different specialisms to co-design and co-deliver creative and inspiring coaching for you and your team. Coaching supports the creation of positive workplace cultures, underpinning successful and thriving organisations of the future.

Artists & Creative Practitioners

If you are an artist or creative practitioner on a low income, please get in touch if you feel coaching could support you in your work or life. Having worked in the arts for over 25 years, I believe in the huge potential of the creative sector to empower communities, help us to see the things in new and different ways and make the world a better place. Get in touch to find out how I can support you in your creative journey.

Navigating Change

Over six sessions Navigating Change gives you the support you need to overcome a current obstacle or dilemma. You’ll come away with a clearer view of your options having identified changes you wish to make to your home or work life and the steps to get there. I’ll support you to work out what’s been holding you back as you explore and develop positive new ways to understand yourself and move forwards.

Coaching Conversations

This two-hour, focussed, goal oriented in-person coaching conversation is a great way to dip your toe into coaching, and come up with options and solutions to a current dilemma. We may use a model such as GROW or the life-wheel to give structure to this fast-paced session.

Executive Coaching For Leaders

Whether you’re a Director, CEO or Senior Manager, 1:1 coaching is a great way to support you to lead with confidence. I’ll work with you to uncover your unique strengths and values and learn how these underpin your authentic leadership style. During our sessions you’ll grow in confidence and self-awareness and create vital space and time for reflection. You’ll gain fresh inspiration which will in turn help to inspire and excite those around you.

Reset & Revive

This unique day-long retreat is designed for women, who wish to create space and time in their busy lives to pause, reflect and re-find focus.

What is Coaching, and why might seeking it out be one of the most powerful things you ever decide to do?

To understand how Coaching can enrich your life, help you to identify and remove the barriers that are holding you back and potentially be one of the most powerful things you ever decide to do, you’ll need an understanding of what it actually is.

Running to ignite thinking (& the joy of unexpected tea & cake)

How running helps me think better, the process of finding my authentic voice and how the Coach’s own lived experience and ongoing self-enquiry enables them to serve clients and help them reach their potential from a place of understanding, empathy and authenticity.

About me

Coaching has been both life-affirming and life-changing for me – it’s not only something I’m passionate about but as a philosophy it’s something I do my best to live by. Coaching is about having belief in people – it assumes that everyone has potential and is inherently resourceful, that with the right support they can find their own best solutions and ultimately be the author of their own story, consciously creating a life that they want to live.

Through being the recipient of coaching over a number of years, working with some brilliant coaches, I have become more self-aware, more connected to my own thoughts and feelings, and have a good understanding of my own values, beliefs and strengths. I have discovered many tools which I regularly use to stay happy, healthy and motivated. Coaching can help to find happiness from within, rather than from things which may be outside of your control.

Through my practice I continue to learn about myself, others and the world around me. I continually develop and improve my skills to serve others and regularly take part in CPD events and opportunities.

The positive impact that coaching has had on me, is what motivates me to share this gift with others. It’s a privilege and an honour to be invited into people’s lives, to share their hopes and dreams and to support them in their own personal journey to finding fulfilment. I would love to help you find yours.

If you’re curious about how I can help support your journey, please get in touch for a free 30 minute consultation.

Testimonials
“Coaching has completely changed my approach to work and has also had some knock-on benefits for my personal life too. I am more self-aware, able to take criticism and I make time for reflection. The way in which I communicate has transformed, I feel like there is more clarity in my life and things are just a bit calmer. I have discovered who I am as a leader and I am comfortable with that which has increased my confidence and is pushing me to do more and go further.”
Lucy, Charity CEO
“Nina’s coaching sessions help me to work through challenges in a way that takes them from being quite overwhelming, to lots of smaller, manageable steps that get me to where I want to be. She always asks just the right question when I’m feeling stuck. She has a genuine, enthusiastic style that makes her a great coach!”
Michelle, Business Relationship Manager
“The sessions I have had with Nina have seen me through quite a turbulent time; quitting a job, then interviewing for and starting in a new one whilst also deciding to move house. These things would have previously overwhelmed me but Nina’s coaching enabled me to unpick some of my long-held beliefs and enabled me to face them. I have finished my sessions with a sense of calmness and confidence that I didn’t think I had in me.”
