About me

Supporting individuals, organisations, communities and good causes through coaching.

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

I offer accessible, affordable and flexible one-to-one sessions. From £58 per session, you decide whether we meet weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Cancel any time.

Clients are often looking for help with, for example:

  • Increase confidence and self esteem
  • Personal development or considering a career change
  • Increase motivation and energy
  • Effective leadership and improved communication at work 
  • Time management, prioritising, efficiency and work/life balance
  • Small business owners and entrepreneurs looking for support

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

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

I have benefitted personally and professionally from coaching for more than 10 years, and this inspired me to become a professional coach.

As a professional coach 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.

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."

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."
