I specialise in supporting professionals either at work or returning to work after an extended absence.
After graduating from the National University of Ireland, I became a geologist. What does that have to do with coaching? Well, I was lucky enough to have an amazing boss who supported me as I continued my studies, adding Human Resources to my repertoire.
When the 2009 economic crash hit, I moved to London, where I was again blessed with an amazing boss – this time in Architecture. During this marvellous time I met my partner, became pregnant with our beautiful son and qualified with the CIPD in Human Resource Management.
It’s a funny thing getting what you think you want, then realising that it’s not. I suddenly felt the stress of being in the wrong job, that familiar Sunday night knot and Monday morning dread. Clearly, a change was needed.
Fast forward to today: I was already an HR coach of sorts, but during my professional coaching studies I met people completely different to me who all had the same dream – to do something meaningful.
Coaching has changed my life and I feel privileged to witness and support that change in others. By having faith in you, I will restore your confidence.
My only agenda is your success and happiness. All too often we think we must go it alone, but most top CEO’s and successful athletes have coaches (some have several!)
Now is the time to invest in yourself.
Thought for today
“You may try and fail, but don’t fail to try!”
What People are saying about me
Highly recommended. I was completely lost and frustrated . Orla’s CV attracts plenty of attention from future employers. One of the first employers I sent my cv too quickly contacted me and hired me.

As a mum of two having taken an extended career break, I was severely lacking in confidence . I was a bit of an emotional wreck. Orla Cahill is simply brilliant. If any of this resonates with you then I 110% urge you to do yourself the biggest favour and reach out to her. She’s warm, funny, non-judgemental and she will absolutely give you the tools you need and get you seeing your clear path ahead for yourself. Something I struggled to believe possible for so long. I only regret not seeing her sooner.
I decided to work with Orla on finding a new career path after a longer maternity break. This self-discovery journey not only gave me a clear idea of what I need and what is important to me, also showed me how to achieve it with confidence. Her relaxed and friendly, yet professional style made the whole coaching a truly enjoyable experience.
