I am Emma Dempsey, Iā€™m a change maker and always have been. I love working with people around change and improvement, and have done for over two decades working in development.

I have a Masters Degree in Social Development and have always been fascinated by the interplay between individuals and the world around us and by human behaviour.

As a qualified Transformational Coach (accredited by the International Coaching Federation) I now work alongside people who want to create change for themselves in life or business and want a hand to do that. 

I am honoured to work with amazing humans including creatives, writers, leaders, speakers and coaches.

I work one to one with a limited number of clients (see work with me page) and also offer coaching and mentoring for qualified coaches. .

I also work part time as a trainer at the 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.

Lastly and possibly most importantly, I am a down to earth, straight talking kind of coach. I work in a collaborative and relaxed way but I will ask you questions that can be both direct and challenging. 

Sessions are open and honest to allow for growth, they are not always easy but growth will happen, sometimes in just a few sessions.  

Coaching can be a truly empowering 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."
