Hi, my name is Tracey!
I come from from Co. Wicklow, currently living in Kildare with my lovely husband Colin. I have 2 amazing children, my daughter Kayleigh is in her late twenties. We are great friends & we spend time together whenever we can. My son Conor is forever 9 years old, he passed away in 2008 and even though we can't see him any more he is still a huge part of our lives .
A little bit about me
I have been working with children every day for more than 20 years. As well as being a life coach, I am passionate about children's yoga, building strong bodies & calm minds. I teach children's after school yoga classes in Blessington, Co. Wicklow. I am a child & teen life coach/mentor, I really love helping a child or teen who is struggling to believe in themselves by showing them how a positive mindset can change their lives. I also love running Confidence Clinic Best Life Camps at Easter, Summer & Hallowe'en, where we mix fun & friendship with building social skills and self confidence. When I'm not working I spend lots of time cooking & baking. I am happiest when I'm with my family and my friends, sitting around a table sharing food & spending time together.
My favourite hobby is travelling, especially going to my little house in France and on walking holidays. Walking & talking are two of my favourite things. I really enjoy going to lots of music concerts & festivals. I keep my body healthy by running ( slowly! ), hiking in the Wicklow Mountains and spending as much time outdoors as I can. I keep my mind happy by spending time with people I love, by reading a lot and listening to good podcasts. I am constantly learning & I love studying, you will always find me in the middle of a course ( or two )
I work as a special needs assistant at a mainstream National School, the hours I work allow me to work part time as a children's yoga teacher (I trained at The Elbow Room Yoga Hub in Dublin) and to run camps during the school holidays. I am a qualified personal life coach ( Dip. Personal Development & Business Coach, Irish Life Institute )
I really enjoy coaching and mentoring children, and love running Best Life Easter & summer camps for children aged 6-12. I also really enjoy coaching teens & young adults through some difficult and challenging issues. I recently presented the Teen Talk Workshop, a series of on-line sessions developed for secondary school students, to help them look after themselves, physically and mentally. The feedback was really positive & quite a few of the students who took part came back for to me for some one to one coaching afterwards.
I have studied Emotional Regulation Intervention, Anxiety Intervention, Loss & Bereavement and N.L.P. I have enrolled to begin my studies in counselling & psychotherapy in 2021. I also run my own adult coaching business, Laochra Coaching, where I offer Parent Coaching, www.laochracoaching.ie.
