I’m obsessed with achieving the perfect work life balance for me, and I want to retire when I’m 50; not to be rich but so I can spend time doing the things I love.
I work with people who know that theres more, they just can’t see what. We find out what more is, then we make a plan. Its my favourite thing to do
I have been practising Coaching since 2012. I started off as a Life Coach, then I trained as a Career Coach and most recently I talk about money a lot.
So it doesn’t really matter what your issue is, all you need to know is I’m really good at picking apart a problem. And I’m also really good at working on a plan.

I have been delivering Training and Workshops in one form or another for over ten-years now.
I help tailor bespoke sessions for organisations as well as designing workshops based on feedback I get from working with my Coaching Clients.

I’ve been invited to speak by a number of organisations to their members and staff. I’ve spoken on a variety of topics I’m interested in including Coaching, Managing Anxiety, Engaging Volunteers, Work-Life Balance to name a few; as well as engaging in panel discussions.
If you have an event coming up and you are wondering if I might be a good fit, here is some feedback from people I have worked with.
It was an absolute pleasure to have Sharon in to provide a workshop to our team on self-care and personal well-being. Her evidence informed approach to the topic was engaging which she rounded out with her many years of professional experience as a coach and mentor. Her style of facilitating the workshop was inclusive and allowed each participant to share and reflect on their own self-care and personal well-being plans and how to make practical improvements.
‘Sharon was a pleasure to work with. I asked her to speak at an event being held during National Volunteer Week and she brilliantly tailored her content to support the topic at hand – ‘The Benefits of Volunteering on Mental Well-Being’. She was easy to communicate with and her sense of humour came through from our initial communication and throughout her presentation. She has a very likeable, bubbly personality and brought her own experiences into her presentation which was appreciated by those attending. She is an enthusiastic, intelligent professional who I would hire again in an instant.’
“Sharon worked incredibly well with our speakers, encouraging them to really interrogate their content and find the story within that would capture an audiences attention. Her inclusive and no nonsense attitude was well received and helped to level the room between very experienced speakers and novices”
“Sharon was extremely informative, clear and professional. Her workshop was inspiring for all involved and there was an approachable atmosphere where interaction was inspired throughout. The concept of Sharons classes got great interest from the student body and she was able confident on working with the crowd on the day. The talk was well thought out and well organised and DCU would recommend Sharon and her coaching services to anyone in need of motivation and organisation in their personal lives or careers.”
“Sharon worked with WFE since 2013. In that time she has been heavily involved in the design, promotion and implementation of a programme aimed at encouraging more women to participate in Leadership roles. Sharons training style is energetic and enthusiastic and her modules received a great response from participants. We look forward to working with her again in the future.”
“Sharon Hughes volunteered her time willingly to take part in two leadership events with The Wheel during 2018. Sharon’s personal stories, insight and practicality on the topic of coaching and mentoring was hugely appreciated by the participants , many of whom are struggling with the responsibilities of managing people. The honest insights expressed by Sharon and the reinforcement that we all need mentoring at different stages of career, life and around specific events, was significant for The Wheel members. I have very much enjoyed working with Sharon on these events and look forward to working more with her in the future.”
Sharon changed my life! I worked with Sharon for a series of life coaching sessions to help me make a shift in my career to a role more in line with my true self and skills. Before I met Sharon, I was having no luck getting interviews. After our first session I had an interview, after the third session I had a second interview and by the time our coaching was finished I was offered the job! Sharon taught me useful techniques that I still use to this day. Sharon is an excellent coach, with a practical approach, supportive methodology and she always pushed me outside my comfort zone. She cares deeply about you on an individual level and knows how you can get the most out of your life. I would recommend (and have already done so!) Sharon to anyone who's looking to make a change in their life. She's simply an incredible, inspiring coach and she's helped me get to where I am today, in an extremely fulfilling career!
“Sharon coached me through a tricky career shift, giving me the perspective I needed to reshape my work situation. Her no-nonsense practicality combined with genuine enthusiasm and moxy delivers results. I came home from a 1-hour session with 15 new strategies and exercises to implement. In 60 minutes I felt a new sense of agency over my life direction. A month later, as I work my way through each of her suggestions, I’m seeing new opportunities emerge from each action I take. I have been singing her praises to everyone I meet. She’s the real deal!”
“Working with Sharon was a breath of fresh air. She provided public speaking training and content feedback for the TEDx event I was a speaker at. I found her no-nonsense approach to be the right balance of direct, practical and encouraging. She is energetic and enthusiastic and really believes in the people she is working, I felt she really “got me” and would welcome the opportunity to work with her again. If you need a positive, helpful good old kick-up-the-bum to make changes in your personal and/or professional life then I would highly recommend working with Sharon!”
This blog is my own creative outlet because I enjoy writing. I am interested in lots of different things so I write about whatever takes my fancy.
I write about my own lifestyle experiences. DIY, up-cycling, limited parenting experience, gardening, self-care and whatever else crosses my mind.
I have a theory of trying everything once before I rule it out, or in, as the case may be.
