Here's What My Clients Are Saying

"Mary exudes serenity and calmness and I...seem to pick up on this which has helped me in turn to find that stillness which I needed so badly. 

I was in a very bad place when I joined your class...

You have helped me to slow down my thoughts and find the calm and relax...for that I will forever thank you..."  Emer.

"Mary O'Connor helped me by...Being gentle with myself.  Taking care of myself.  Accepting myself. 

The result is ongoing...I found the experience very helpful and easy to follow with no pressure and to be patient with myself. 

I would recommend Mary O'Connor to people who need tools to help themselves relax and accept themselves as they are."  Fintan.

Who Is Addiction Recovery
Mentoring For?  


My mentoring program is for lawyers who have been in recovery for a year or more. Below I give some
of lawyers who can benefit, but each attorney's triggers and recovery journey from
alcohol and 
substances are unique.  My service is confidential, respectful, and compassionate.

Here's What My Clients Are Saying

"The coaching with Mary O'Connor has helped me by showing me how empowered I am. 

It quickly resulted in my realizing what a very capable person I am.

  It also resulted in my realizing that I have the inner strength to deal with anything that comes down the line to me. 

I now know that I have a lot of inner resources that I wasn't aware of. 

As a result of the coaching with Mary, I'm going to go forward with a much lighter step. 

I feel more alive and see things more clearly now. 

Mary has the gift of being able to draw things out from people. 

I felt very comfortable with Mary because she had an easy and comfortable way of talking with me. 

I recommend this coaching with Mary to anyone, particulary anyone who needs to feel more empowered in their lives or who needs more clarity in how to move forward in their lives. 

It has been a very good lesson for me."  Christine.
