About me

Whether you want to change one thing or your whole life then I can help, just the fact that you want to change something is enough to get started.

If you choose to work with me I promise you that there is no ‘one size fits all’, your sessions and the length of time that we work together will be bespoke for you.

Hello and welcome to my page, I am passionate about empowering people to take back control of their lives by understanding how they can improve their mental and emotional health. Coaching and therapy can be a confusing world and my approach is to keep things simple by offering fast, effective coaching that works.

It's a forward-looking, solution-focused approach that helps you explore the issues that are blocking you, re-connect with the resources you already have and then focus on the changes you want to make. During our work together you will learn the vital tools, skills and strategies which will allow you to focus on the future, set your goals and get on with your life.

After many years working in the music industry, where I regularly saw and personally experienced the effects of living a life out of balance I made the decision to follow my passion for helping others by studying counselling, coaching, trauma therapy, yoga therapy and mindfulness.

As somebody who has enjoyed several careers and built, run and sold her own small business I know how tough the decisions and challenges can be. I love to work with people looking to grow or change their career or start or grow their small business but still have a life outside of work. Those decisions can be daunting and it can feel very lonely sometimes but I am here to guide and support you.

If you are feeling stuck and frustrated but are now ready to move forward and would like to work with somebody who has been there then I look forward to meeting and working with you.

Regularly invited to comment by the media, I have appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Lorraine, ITV News, BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme, Channel 5 News and numerous radio programmes including Radio 5 Live & Radio 4 Woman’s Hour.

My other professional passions include working with clients struggling with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) contrary to what you might have read in the press PTSD can be treated in a very non-invasive way in a few short sessions. I have been incredibly impressed by the results of working with the rewind technique and have seen clients take significant steps forward in just one session. I absolutely love horses and have spent many years as an equine therapist so often combine my equine experience to work with riders who have lost confidence or stopped riding completely due to a bad experience.

I am passionate about lots of things and one of those is menopause. All too often I see women in my private practice who have been diagnosed as depressed when in fact they are peri menopausal. Hormonal fluctuation can have a huge effect on our mental capacity and emotional health and I am determined to change the way women are being failed. menopausesupport.co.uk is my website dedicated to supporting women, couples and employers. I have completed the menopause foundations course for nurses and I am the media lay spokesperson for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and a member of the RCOG women’s voices involvement panel.

I have spent time coaching young people both in school and privately and particularly enjoy working with teenagers.

I love to teach workshops and run several emotional intelligence workshops every year.

Along with my therapeutic coaching and trauma work I also teach well woman yoga, yoga nidra (sleep yoga) and mindfulness and sometimes combine these modalities in my work.

I regularly teach wellbeing workshops in businesses and organisations and provide one to one consultations for individual staff members.

Further information

"Talking stuff out really helped me, understanding and learning how I could control what I was feeling has made me feel so much more at ease. Our sessions have turned my life around, they made me realise that only I could take control. I have got a new job, a new home and got engaged. Thank you" 

I needed someone to listen, someone to see that I was an alright person. Someone to not just simply agree and pity me and join in with my drowning grief and no confidence state of mind. Someone who would not interrupt. Someone who realised my needs of simply identifying in order how to prioritise the heap of negative I carried around daily, weekly, monthly, yearly. Someone who gave me direction at last, someone who simply said Yes you can. If failure wasn't an option where would you like to be in your life? I replied Right here Di. You showed me how to be happy again in a short time. It was that I just needed someone to talk to. Thank you"

"I have discovered that deep down I have always known what I wanted but my sessions with Di have allowed me the time and space to reconnect with what I know is right for me. Di has helped me identify both short and long term goals and I now feel that I have been able to clear my mind and can focus on what I want from my life. The sessions have helped me relax and reminded me of the importance of positive thinking. I now have direction in my life again, It’s been so good to talk."

"I have been blown away by working with Diane. I had been struggling to get my head around enjoying horse riding, following a serious horse riding accident four years ago. I started riding again eighteen months after my accident but I had been gradually getting more fearful and very anxious with very scary, vivid flashbacks! Since starting to work with Diane I have overcome so many obstacles in my mind that were holding me back, such as being able to ride unknown horses, riding on my own without supervision, no more flashbacks and generally enjoying my passion for horse riding again, which I never thought would be possible. I really feel that I can now start moving on and not let my past hold me back!" Liz

"I have been a confident rider all my life, evented to British eventing pre novice level. I have backed and hacked many young horses and willingly ridden tricky horses. September 28th 2009 saw an end to all of that following a very nasty accident which shattered my left knee. The accident was a total freak one and happened when mounting a young horse. I returned to riding as soon as I was physically able to but soon discovered I was feeling on edge all the time and especially so when mounting. I decided it was time to seek help as it was beginning to spoil the enjoyment of my lovely 5 year old Jazz. I spoke to Diane and she explained how she could help me. After my first appointment with Diane I didn't feel any different and almost felt disappointment!! Then a few days later I found myself mounting with no one holding my horse even though he was moving around, since that day everything has changed, I feel much more like the old me and can honestly say it feels amazing!! I can't recommend Diane enough and just wish more people would seek the help I have received, it has given me back my freedom of riding. Thank you Diane, Nina (and jazz ) xxx

Thank you Di, after seeing you and talking to you I started to look at myself differently.  I decided to make some changes in my life including starting a diet. I am now seeing my old friends again and making new friends. The biggest change for me has been having the courage to say no to people who I feel have taken advantage of me, no more bullies! I feel a lot stronger in myself and can stand up for myself now. I no longer let things build up, I feel stronger about discussing things and finding the way forward. When I first came to see you I was so unhappy trying to keep everyone around me happy that I had lost myself. Thank you for helping me find myself again, life can be so mad but now I know that I am going to be alright. You are the best."
