A New Dawn in Ireland Movers! Coaching you home

Join us and save time, energy and money and create your new life in Ireland, stress-free.

The comprehensive step-by-step method to create your new life in Ireland.

A Guide for Emigrants By Returned Emigrants.

With your own ICF-certified personal and business coach.

We get it. You are thinking about coming to Ireland or have already made your big decision. You want the step-by-step details. You want the actionable tips and friendly advice that your fellow emigrants have used to successfully create your new life in Ireland over the next few weeks and months.

Returning home or emigrating to Ireland is as much, if not more, a mental and emotional life-changing experience than it is a geographical move or logistical exercise.

I created this course because I want you to overcome the challenges and embrace your new life in an easier way than I and many of your fellow returnees did. We’ll take you by the hand and show you the exact process that thousands of your fellow emigrants have used to settle in Ireland and to navigate their way through the stages of recreating a new life with minimal stress.

But first, let us explain how this course will help you and why we're so excited by it.

Programme begins Feb 2023.

This programme is only for you if you have already decided to move. If you have not yet decided then check out our shorter sister programme A New Dawn in Ireland - The Decision.

OKAY, so this course looks exactly what I need. What will we be covering in the course each week?

This course is a self-paced online course with a live coaching element. (Yes, you’ll get in-person help from myself and other experts as required).

You can complete the programme in weeks or if you wish to take longer as you plan your move then we will provide you inspirationa and information when you need it.

Each module is designed to coincide with a particular step in your epic journey home.

Each week you’ll go through the course module online in the private members area, and you can schedule your 1-1 coaching calls for more hands-on help to ask questions and get amazing guidance and coaching from myself.

The NEW DAWN Programme is based on our unique ADAPTORS model. It represents the path through all major stages in your emigration journey.


James is an authentic, real and positive leader who helps other emigrants to make the move successfully. This is an excellent course — definitely worth checking out!

James writes with honesty and positivity. He is also a master planner and organiser - and this course reflects that.
