Bernie Delaney BA Tr & Ed. MIASC. DIPSC.
Facilitator for our Tutored Courses in the UK & Ireland.
Bernie has been helping people to improve many aspects of their physical and emotional wellbeing for almost 20 years. Her initial years were spent as a Nurse, and although her work was truly rewarding, at times Bernie felt disillusioned with general medicine, believing in the wonderful power of holistic therapies. Bernie’s belief in a holistic approach to general wellbeing led to her studying Reflexology, and over the years she helped many clients to experience a better quality of life. Through her work, Bernie became further intrigued by the mind/body link and the feedback she received served to energise her passion for holistic therapies further.
In her health sector career, Bernie also held the position of Manual Handling Advisor for the Health Service Executive for six years, and in that time developed extensive experience in delivering and designing training workshops to staff at all levels, and providing mentoring and motivational assistance to course participants. Through this role, Bernie rediscovered her first love of teaching, and decided to further her expertise by embarking on a four year BA degree in Training and Education.
When Bernie discovered the Style Coaching™ Diploma Course she instantly recognised the intrinsic value of the Style Coaching™ process and was fascinated with its light-hearted but highly effective holistic philosophies. In her work as a Style Coach™, Bernie has gained a wealth of experience dealing with clients of all age groups and from all walks of life. Bernie delivers large workshops and often presents large Style Coaching™ events to raise money for well-deserving charities.
Bernie and fellow Style Coach™, Grainne Smith, together established xmakeover.ie, a six week makeover program for charity where a number of clients are Style Coached and a high-profile competition is then held for the best ‘inside and out’ makeover. The first of many reveal shows was a huge success, with an audience of over 600 people. All monies raised through xmakeover.ie are donated to charity with four shows hosted in different locations each year. xmakeover.ie continues to receive incredible media interest from newspapers and magazines, and Bernie has regular nationwide radio interviews. This year saw Bernie, and her partner Grainne, make their television network debut hosting their life-changing show.
Bernie has become a fantastic member of the Style Coaching™ team and facilitates courses in Dublin and London. She loves interacting with her students, sharing her knowledge and her extensive experience! Bernie has a natural ability to build rapport with people of all ages and from all walks of live, and is praised by her students for her engaging manner, contagious enthusiasm and passion, warm sense of humour, her empathetic nature and her down to earth approach. Bernie is passionate about sharing all of her experiences with Style Coaches™ in training, so that they too can experience the benefits and amazing rewards that Style Coaching™ can bring to peoples’ lives.
