I am Emma Dempsey, I’m a change maker and always have been. For two decades I worked in Social Development focusing on empowering others to create change. I have a Masters Degree in Social Development and have always been fascinated by the interplay between individuals, their communities and the world around them.

Initially a sceptic, I came to coaching myself through my own mid life awakening and from the first transformational conversation I had, I was hooked. Coaching is an amazing thing, I love seeing it’s power and watching as my clients transform themselves and their businesses. They do this mostly through shifting their thoughts and finding clarity on who they are and what they want.

Through coaching I have changed my own life, leaving a “secure job” in Public Health at the NHS, to set up a successful coaching practice that is led by my values and works around my children. I now work alongside people who want to create change for themselves and want a hand to do that. 

I am honoured to work with amazing humans and absolutely love my work. I work one to one with a limited number of clients (see work with me page) and also offer group coaching and courses for trainee and qualified coaches.

I work part time as a trainer at the very brilliant Animas Centre for Coaching (www.animascoaching.com) for the Diploma in Transformational Coaching and the Kickstart your Coaching Practice workshops in Edinburgh and Berlin.

Coaching is my thing and my track record is excellent. Have a read of what my clients are saying and book an intro call on the following page so we can explore working together. 

I look forward to hearing from you.



Emma has been coaching me in relation to getting my new career off the ground.  She has allowed me to get clarity and focus on what I was trying to achieve. She has helped me understand what was holding me back and as a result, to overcome those obstacles. The boost in clarity and confidence that I have gained has got me to a place where I am now feeling that it is "all starting to happen". Emma is a kind, compassionate coach with a real insight for asking the right questions to help me move forward."
