About me

Are you looking for an inspiring life-coach, guide, or mentoring professional to support you? Someone experienced, whom it’s easy to talk to and who is trained to listen…?

Life is challenging. Often it can be useful to walk alongside someone who has got your back. Someone you can trust and who sees you clearly.

At 55 I know life to be a deep, rich tapestry. I started out in drama education, passionate about theatre and creativity. I led individuals through corridors of exciting learning and guided groups in deeply bonding experiences. Since then I’ve lived through some of life’s cycles. I’ve felt its joys, wonders and successes and I know of breakdowns, illness, heartbreaks and losses. When we start working together, the first and most important thing is, I’ll be inviting you to get curious about you. Then starts an exciting journey of personal discovery.

Coaching is a creative, powerful and transformative process. You’ll leave our sessions with greater self awareness and the capacity to take skilful actions and make wiser choices.

Our work will ground you in your body. This is a powerful way of understanding yourself. In a safe space, you’ll learn to work with your energy and handle challenging feelings. We’ll discover what’s really important for you and I’ll help you make embodied, sustainable changes. You’ll discover that you develop the inner resources you need to move forward with confidence.

I hold sessions with compassion, intuition, gentle humour and a deep honesty. And I will challenge you to dig deep when I see it. Whatever your reason is for finding a life-coach — whether in your personal, professional or spiritual life — I'll support you to show up in the world courageously with your feet firmly on the ground.

What people say having worked with me...

Through Duncan’s deeply intuitive and knowledgeable coaching he guided me through this work, holding a safe container for my otherwise frenetic energy. He would gently guide me back if I strayed from the path that led to the root of my issue. Yet he allowed me to make all of the discoveries about myself, by myself. It has been life-changing work for me and Duncan’s guidance and leadership fundamental. (Michael Corsale, Actor)

I came to Duncan at a time when I felt lost and out of sync with myself. The techniques he has taught me allow me to connect with the flow of a bigger picture and take positive action. The somatic approach centres me in my body and I've made real, practical changes to the way I do things. Duncan holds a fantastic space of calm, empathy and encouragement. The work we've done together has been absolutely fundamental in opening new possibilities for me. (Kaj Meerstadt, The Little Massage Company)

I've been coming to Duncan for a year now for embodied somatic coaching sessions. My life was in flux, and I knew I needed help to move into a more positive and confident space. Through the sessions, I have learnt about how my emotional self and my physical self can work together rather than fighting each other. Duncan taught me the tools to work with my anxiety and negative self-thoughts, and channel them into positive action rather than self-detrimental reaction and fear-induced inactivity. Duncan has provided a safe space to explore who I am, and who I want to be without fear, and I can honestly say that it has changed my life, and given me the tools to become a happier, healthier, more assured person. (Biba Hunjan, Freelance Creative Art-worker)

I went to Duncan wanting to take control of my life. I’d found myself in my early 30s wanting change, however a number of old patterns of behaviour have held me back. The sessions with Duncan have been a huge support, he’s a brilliantly positive and gentle man. His centring technique has given me so much more self awareness around my tendencies and I'm making more grounded choices than. before. It’s been so useful having a coach, having weekly commitments, check ins and feeling progress towards my wider goal. (Marlon Rose Tavares, Film-maker)

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
