About me

You might be looking for a career coach, an executive coach, business coach, or a life coach to help you to increase confidence and self esteem. Maybe you are considering a career change or personal development.

Do you want to increase your motivation and energy levels or be a more effective leader and improve communication at work? Perhaps improve your time management, prioritising, efficiency and work/life balance?

I'm an experienced, accredited coach supporting individuals, organisations, communities and good causes through coaching. I have a particular interest in personal, leadership and career coaching, working with individuals on a one-to-one basis to support their development both personally and professionally.

Through one-to-one coaching programmes, I encourage you to pause. To give yourself time to think. To pursue and achieve your goals.

​My role is to listen and support you towards positive solutions for whatever it is you would like to achieve.

I have successfully helped my clients to get the most out of their current role, maximise opportunities within their organisations, find and obtain a new job / career change. I have coached people, leading them to an improved quality of life, a better work/life balance, improved motivation and confidence!

My coaching practice is committed to having a positive influence on society and to make a meaningful impact through personal and leadership development.

I offer accessible and flexible one-to-one sessions. You decide whether we meet weekly, fortnightly or monthly. And you can cancel any time.

Client Testimonials:

Career Coaching:

"Coaching sessions with Dan helped me to identify both personal and professional goals that would have the biggest impact in terms of bringing about positive change. He was very understanding and supportive. While holding me accountable to the actions I had decided would help me to reach my goals, there was also a level of flexibility. Dan helped me to adapt my approach when necessary, while still holding my goals in mind. His approach made my long term professional goals feel realistic and his support was integral to me meeting them. I would really recommend his service."

Business coaching:

Daniel is a really friendly and very professional coach. He has already in just a month helped me to see the obvious flaws in my business that I was to stuck on my path to see.

I would recommend Daniel to anyone (and I have already done). 

Executive coaching:

"I was looking for a coach to help me get out of a professional rut I found myself in, and after a call with Daniel I knew I wanted to work with him. He didn’t try the hard sell like some others people I’ve spoken to, he truly just wants what’s best for you. He’s a friendly, calm and supportive presence.

He quickly helped me identify what was most important and in alignment for me. He was the thinking partner I needed, bringing out the real issues and beliefs that were holding me back, in terms of my professional and business goals. I feel much more confident moving forward in my business after Daniel’s coaching because he really helped me simplify and think about my own strengths and experiences so far. I couldn’t have done that process alone. Highly recommend Daniel for professionals or business owners.

Life coaching:

"Believing in my abilities and originating from a background of failure caused me to have many limiting beliefs and I embraced procrastination instead of pro-actively taking the lead.

However working with Daniel made a difference! He made me realise how easy it is to be locked in our own circle of thoughts and how important it is to share with others. His calm persona and style of coaching disentangled my negative thoughts and enabled me to understand different perspectives on how I can go forward. His questions 'pushed’ me to think of other options and enabled me to be open and honest on my feelings."
