Moyra Mackie is an experienced and accredited executive coach and organisational
consultant. A Master Practitioner recognised by the European Mentoring and Coaching
Council, Moyra’s training draws from experience and research in therapy, counselling and
relational coaching developing a style that is both mindful and relational.
Her holistic approach focuses on helping people with connection. In a world where people
frequently feel disconnected, she helps others (re) connect with themselves, with their
partners, family, loved ones and teams. Moyra works from the inside out to help people
discover who they are and how they are really feeling. This then gives them the clarity and
tools to deal with life’s challenges such as stress, crises and change. In an increasingly
volatile, and uncertain world, she helps busy, successful and ambitious managers and teams to measurably and sustainably develop their leadership

journaling as providing a reflective practice which has an immediate and long-term
impact on emotional well-being and mental clarity, professionally and personally.

clients through the process of writing down their thoughts and feelings and working towards
setting life goals. Alongside this, she also created the Inner Circle ; a private online journaling community and membership where members can access weekly guided

including a decade as senior partner of a learning and development consultancy, running a
global team of consultants and trainers. During this time she recognised that genuine, trustful communication lies at the heart of good leadership, effective team work and successful organisations.
Moyra’s move into coaching was gradual.

She has gone on to become a leading career and leadership coach and consultant forming her own business to work with entrepreneurs, start-ups and multinationals.
Moyra initially experimented with journaling during her studies for her Masters, however, it was when she made the decision to leave a decades-long marriage, that she really engaged with regularly putting pen to paper; discovering that journaling is a powerful form of self-coaching.
By using journaling, Moyra helps clients carve out time for quality thinking; working out what
their personal values are and setting life goals that align with these values. It is her Mission to help people move from constant busyness and survival thinking to thriving at home and work.
Born in Zimbabwe and moving to the UK when 11 years old, and with residency in both Italy
and the USA; Moyra is familiar with navigating difference, change and transition. She has
used her real-life experiences to help clients on a genuine path of positive change.
