About Bernie

Bernie Delaney BA Tr & Ed. MIASC. DIPSC. RGN, RNMH, Dip Reflexology

Bernie has been helping people to feel better about themselves,  improving many aspects of their physical and emotional wellbeing for over 20 years.

Bernie is 40 years old, and is a mother to her two children aged 9 and 7.

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 complimentary medicine and 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; from those who have suffered minor depression, anxiety, stress, and other emotional challenges, to those with physical conditions such as Asthma and infertility. Through her work, Bernie became further intrigued by the mind / body link and the feedback she received served to energise her passion.

In her Health sector career, Bernie has held the position of Manual Handling Advisor for the Health Service Executive for over ten years, and in that time has developed extensive experience in delivering and designing training workshops to staff at all levels of the HSE, and providing mentoring and motivational assistance to the course participants. Through this role, Bernie rediscovered her first love of teaching, and in 2001 decided to further her expertise by embarking on a four year BA degree in Training and Education. 

Bernie later enrolled on the Style Coaching™ Diploma Programme and from the perspective of her past experiences, Bernie instantly recognised the intrinsic value of Style Coaching™ 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’s work has varied extensively from one-to-one coaching, to delivering talks to adolescents in schools, to delivering large workshops and she often hosts large Style Coaching™ events often to raise money for well-deserving Irish charities.

Bernie and a fellow Style Coach™, Grainne, together established "xmakeover.ie", a competition which is held in one county at a time over a six-eight week period. Four contestants were transformed "inside and out" and a Grand Finale was held to decide the winner as voted for by the audience. The first of seven Grand Finale shows was a huge success, with an audience of over 600 people. "xmakeover.ie" has received incredible media interest over the past couple of years, with Bernie featuring on many radio stations throughout Ireland and receiving widespread newspaper coverage. In September 2008, the Style Coaching™ duo made their debut television appearance on Ireland’s premier television station, RTE, when a recording of one of their county (Laois/Offaly) competitions was broadcasted nationwide. The pair took their transformational contest to seven counties in Ireland!

In addition to her private work as a successfully practicing Style Coach™, Bernie has become a fantastic member of the Style Coaching Institute™ training team and facilitates courses in Dublin and London. She loves interacting with her students, sharing her knowledge and her extensive experience of Style Coaching™ in action! Bernie has a natural ability to build rapport, 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.
