Hi everyone, welcome to In Essence. My name is Ciara Heneghan and I am so happy you have found your way here. I hope that you are ready to go on the journey of your lifetime and I will be here with you for whatever YOU need.

When you decide that you are ready to become the very best version of yourself and if you are wondering exactly how you do that, then that is where I come in.

I help busy moms and professional women through mind-set coaching, movement and mentoring. I use breakthrough techniques to:

  1. Help you find a starting point to grow from
  2. Teach you how to be your most well, healthy, fit and mobile self, inside and outside
  3. Help you to be open to the ideas in your head that you may be a little nervous to start or maybe to finish
  4. Help with the misconceptions surrounding health and wellness by getting you to learn what works for YOU.... trial and error is not a bad thing because it leads to SUCCESS!
  5. Help you to be STRONG. Not to fear strength as something not feminine, to lift weights and build beautiful lean muscle which will give you a strong healthy body, strong healthy bones and a strong core and inner self.
  6. Work with you from exactly where you are, teach you how to like who you are now while working on being stronger, healthier, fitter and happier.
  7. Allow you to flourish in every area of your life as you step outside your comfort zone and into the life you were born to live...... 'life begins at the end of your comfort zone'

I have worked in the Health and Wellness Industry in one way or another for the past 18 years. From starting as a fitness instructor, lecturing on 3 sports courses, managing gyms and leisure centres, working in sales, setting up a gym, working in PR, hosting events, teaching dance, dancing professionally and COACHING women to great success. I have loved every minute of the journey and I always knew that I wanted to open my own place where I could connect with people on a more personal level and do what I do from my own capacity.

In Essence was born out of a dream which I put down on paper and then worked on until there was only one thing left to get and when that came it was such a logical step to take to open this space and on February 27th 2018... the dream became a reality.

So many things have happened in my life that bring me to where I am today. I have vast life experience and use that experience daily to help whoever I can, however that help is needed. My mission in life is to help, to empower, to instil confidence, to nurture and to help others be as successful as possible because while you are on this journey to success, so am I, and TOGETHER WE RISE.

Helping you become YOU is about giving you the space and teaching you the tools you need to really BE who you are on the inside but may be a little scared to find. I help women realise that where we can be in our lives, through our thoughts, our beliefs, our knowledge is so much more than where we are right now and that all we need to do to get there is trust in ourselves, question what we have learned to be true or fact, and open our minds to the limitless possibilities there are for every one of us.

I can’t wait to meet you, work with you and see you SUCCEED!
