Testimonials

Thank you Danielle - you should know that you are just incredible at what you do.  I cannot tell you how  empowering and eye-opening the whole experience was.  I honestly had no idea what to expect and I left feeling uplifted, re-energised, supported and loved! You made a room of (mostly) strangers into a room abundant with trust, support, energy, passion and new friendships. Wow . . . Lionesses ROCK!!

Ellie Brown


Danielle, it was a pleasure to meet you  in the true sense of the word. You are a beautiful, sincere, knowledgeable woman and allowed us to express ourselves yet calmly guided us along.  I found the experience very meaningful and exactly what I needed as I feel stronger and more like my real self today - so thank you.  I will definitely recommend you and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Clearly this is your calling in life, you should be so proud of yourself. It takes a special person to allow people (especially ones that aren't familiar with each other) to open up and feel comfortable which you absolutely achieved.  So well done, you smashed it!

Stephanie Humphries


You have a real gift.  To be able to bring a group of strangers together; to encourage openness and foster empathy and empowerment, is a real gift.  Tonight was reflective, positive and inspiring.  I went to places in my mind that I had never really been before - I simply never have the time to stop and be still.  Thank you for allowing me the time and space to find myself again.  Learning to love oneself, accepting compliments and silencing your inner critic isn't hard when you have someone like you there who lights the way.

Laura Miller


Rather synchronistically, the universe sent me Danielle in the aftermath of the biggest heartbreak of my life.  I was low, directionless and lacking in confidence, locked in a negative, past focused mindset. Danielle is the ultimate cheerleader, much more than a coach really, a girlfriend who can see strengths, empower and celebrate all of the positives.  She is also highly sensitive and intuitive at unpicking difficulties, finding new ways to silence the inner critic and unlock dormant potential.  She is also a staunch advocate for self care - such a relief to be set this as homework! Our coaching sessions were fun, tearful, nurturing, thought provoking, but most of all . . . liberating.  She has been a beautiful, strong and needed voice in my life, reminding me of my gifts, coaching me with new tools and encouraging me to step boldly in the direction of my dreams.  Needless to say, I now have new vision and vigour, with fresh ideas and opportunities unfolding in ways I could never have previously imagined.

Thank you for last night, its hard to describe what happnened.  It certainly was an emotional rollercoaster - thankfully it was being carefully, thoughtfully, kindly and professionally steered by you.  I think I can speak for everyone when I say this was all down to you; that we felt we could open up.  Did you sprinkle magic dust on us all as we walked in?!  I feel like we all shared something special last night.  I am touched beyond belief by the ladies   in the room.  AMAZING.  Thank you for allowing me to be part of something extraordinary.

Laura Ferry


You have a wonderful talent.  In a short space of time, you gained trust and fostered a safe environment for us to tap into personal feelings and emotions.  It was a very tough, but equally, a very reassuring experience.  An excellent reminder to be kinder to those around us and to ourselves too.

Attending the 225 gym was a unique and rewarding experience this week.  The Inner Critic talk enabled me to meet a whole new group of people from the local community and enabled a space where I could get to know and undertand my inner critic.  It was a really interactive and fun evening that left me feeling in control of what I might now allow (or not allow) my inner critic to tell me.  It was a friendly, welcoming and well managed evening.  Thank you

Rebecca Williamson


Thank you, it was a lovely evening. I really enjoyed the experiential process to connect with my inner critics and to remind myself of how I can shut them down. I found your approach really respectful of how vulnerable this makes one feel.  You did a great job of making us feel safe and comfortable and were willing to take part yourselves, rather than just being the experts. I would certainly recommend your talks.

Liz Cappetta


Danielle has this wonderful skill of putting you at ease but also getting you to look inwards and with that, wonderful realisations happen and the true journey of self-discovery and improvement takes place.  In a course of telephone sessions I learnt so much about myself and my pattern and was able to take away from every session practical help.  Her homework was challenging but well worth it and her contact and marvellous after care made me feel safe and actually rather special.  I couldn't recommend Danielle highly enough and I've never in my life been so kind to myself which is having an amazing knock on effect daily! Thank you Danielle, you have a true gift of helping others to help themselves.

I attended a group workshop with Danielle entitled 'Claiming Your Leader Within.' Most of us have that little gremlin saying unkind things in our ears from time to time and the evening focused on ways to silence negative self talk and be kinder to ourselves.  Danielle has a very natural affinity with people, is emotionally intelligent and encouraging, I felt completely at ease in her company.  Through a range of exercises we had the opportunity to look within ourselves and analyse which areas of our lives we wanted to make improvements.  I left feeling more confident and empowered to make positive change. 

Helen Ray


Danielle has a beautiful coaching style that brings warmth and safety to the space she creates.  Danielle also has a real gift to 'see you,' often in a way that you cannot see yourself, and this, coupled with the most amazing intuition, really helps to unlock your thinking and release hidden inner wisdom and potential.

Michael Harris


Danielle coaches with warmth and love but also with a fierce courage to speak the truth and push you to reach your potential.  Her coaching enables you to love yourself and live the life you really want.  I wholeheartedly recommend her.

Louise Puddifoot


I came to Danielle at a very important time in my life.  I was facing more than one change and needed an anchor and someone to be held accountable to.  When I arrived  I was unclear, confused and frustrated.  After 2 sessions my clarity became better.  After another two, I became completely self aware, and after three months of team work on the 'journey of me,' I'm feeling more connected to the world around me than ever.  Thank you Danielle you have been a joy to work with.

FAQ's

What is the difference between coaching and therapy?

image55

As a Co-Active coach it is my job to bring awareness and curiosity to the emotions and actions of my clients so that they can make better choices in their life plan. Together we focus on the present and and how we can improve your future.  I do not deal with the psychological antecedent to the emotion — that is the realm of therapy.


If profound sadness or depression ensues over our time together, I will absolutely bring this to the attention of my client and ensure they receive the help they need.


Coaching can work beautifully alongside therapy or counselling but must never be viewed as a replacement.

Coaching - The Process?

image56

I ask that each of my clients commit to three months worth of sessions with me.   Lasting change in our thought process can only be achieved over a course of time.


During the first month we plan a Discovery Session, followed by a coaching session once a week and then fortnightly sessions for the following two months.


After every session you are set homework and accountability is essential to our relationship.  Contact between sessions is expected as we celebrate your 'wins.'

Where and how does coaching take place?

image57

The majority of my hourly coaching sessions takes place over the phone.  This makes it very easy logistically for my clients.  


When working with teams and corporates, I frequently travel throughout London to see clients. For clients who prefer face to face coaching I have a practise room located in Cobham, Surrey.


My only stipulation is that I never coach in my clients home or my own home.

What is the pricing structure?

image58

This is very much depending on what you are looking for from coaching and how long you want to commit.


The pricing structure is bespoke to the individual and their needs. In order to asses how I can help I offer a free 30 min sample session.  This enables me to create a plan of how we can work together.

If you have a moment please take the time to read the below passage by Marianne Williamson.  I hope it resonates with you as much as it resonates with me.



Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?  Actually who are you not to be? 


YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to manifest the glory that is within us. And as we let our light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. 


Marianne Williamson 

(Nelson Mandela used this passage in his 1994 Inaugural Speech.)
