Emma Dempsey

Coach Trainer - Edinburgh

Emma has worked in social development for over twenty years with a focus on empowering individuals and communities. This has included working in community projects, training individuals, leading behaviour change programmes, guest lecturing at university and influencing policy.

Emma has contributed to academic articles, bestselling books and several podcasts. She has worked with children and illustrators in publishing a book that was featured in the Edinburgh Book Festival.

Despite the rich variety, Emma’s work has always been about empowering individuals and this is also what drives her in her own life, making her role as Animas trainer a perfect fit!

In her coaching, Emma works with people who want to create change and those who want to enhance the world somehow. She works with “amazing humans” including creatives, authors, leaders, speakers, entrepreneurs and coaches, and people who are driven by making the world a better place.

Ultimately, Emma firmly believes in empowerment, and feels that it is an important part of the coaching space. She is passionate about men’s health and men’s wellbeing, running frequent workshops on celebrating boys, and also runs a Facebook group for mums with sons to connect with one another.

Emma brings herself and all of her experience to the training room along with a genuine belief in people and a passion for learning. She loves facilitating people to flourish in the training space. With a background very much rooted in enabling others, Emma gets a real energy from being around people and being part of the whole learning process.

Approachable, inspiring, and down-to-earth, Emma’s warmth allows people to really relate to her story. She builds trust and rapport quickly through the sharing of her experiences, insights and anecdotes from her journey thus far.
