Coaching one on one

We all have moments in our lives when we realise we need support, guidance and help to achieve our goals and dreams. I help people, just like you, who are looking for that guidance to help them shine with confidence from within.

Hi, I’m Dawn, and I know exactly how you feel right now.

When I was 14 years old, I competed in the local festival and I was so nervous and scared. With the help of speech and drama training, I would regularly take part in festivals and events like this one, I even achieved a Guildhall School of Speech and Drama Grade 8 qualification – so why did this feeling overwhelm me?

Thanks to this defining moment I began to teach myself new ways to calm my body, my mind, and my soul. To build my confidence from within, so that, even if my mind felt a little nervous (we all do, no matter how big a name you are and how long you have been doing it for!) I know exactly how to get my mind into that calm and excited moment so that the presentation I am making, or the new person I am meeting, sees the real me.

About 15 years ago, I embarked on a voyage of discovery that started with reading self-help books and developed through participating in training as a subject learning coach, a personal coach, an NLP coach and Hypnotherapist. That coaching journey has left me with a deep desire to help others in the way that being coached has helped me. I’ve developed a true sense of confidence and resilience now in many aspects of my life, which I would like to share with you.

Confidence for a speaking event

If you are due to speak in a public event, or run a business in which you regularly need to have the confidence to sell your story, your offering or yourself, and feel nervous about taking the stand.

Perhaps you are due to speak at an important event such as a wedding, a charity event, or in front of work colleagues, and want to build your confidence and plan your talk before taking the stage.

Then I would love to speak with you. I help my 1-1 confidence coaching clients prepare for events in which they are due to speak, and put them at ease with skills, techniques and a supportive and determined coaching approach. Let’s chat, and arrange a quick call or a coffee to see if I can help. 

Mark Twain once said “There are two kinds of speakers: those that are nervous and those that are liars.” That’s so true. Over the years I’ve given presentations, talks and training to groups of parents, students, local politicians and colleagues on a variety if different topics and always feel nervous beforehand. I look on some nerves as a positive sign as if I didn’t care about what I was doing then the nerves wouldn’t appear.
So if you’ve been asked to give a presentation and you feel stressed, anxious, sick, overwhelmed, and maybe weak at the knees at the thought of it, help is at hand. I can give you guidance to help diminish those presentation fears and help you develop a beautiful new confidence. No matter whom you are speaking to or where you are speaking, I can give you the tools which will make presentation panic a thing of the past.

Start your journey to speaking with confidence

Unlocking your confidence within

Confidence Coaching with me is right for you if:
◊ You know that confidence or anxiety issues are holding you back but you don’t know how to move forward
◊ You know that you are an intelligent and capable person but a lack of confidence stops you showing this to others.
◊ You feel paralysed by indecision, but you know something needs to change.
◊ You would love to be more confident, even though you don’t want to be brash and over the top.
◊ You know you deserve more
◊ You sometimes feel ‘shouted down’ or undervalued. You’d appreciate the support and listening skills from someone who is non-judgmental and totally on your side.
◊ You know that you’re the kind of person who will talk yourself out of going for your dream, even if you get partway there.
So what if you’d like to call me but lack of confidence is stopping you from actually doing it.  What should you do? 
If confidence is really stopping you from making even the first step, how about sending an email or a text?  It’s natural to be nervous about trying something new but I always aim to treat you, as I’d like to be treated myself, with warmth, kindness and respect.
What will you get out of confidence coaching?
As with everything in life, you’ll get out what you put in.  Coaching requires determination and dedication on your part. However, there are a number of benefits to having confidence coaching with me. As a result of coaching you will:
◊ Be more in control of life and have the confidence to freely express yourself;
◊ Have the confidence to explore and discover beautiful new ways of living and working;
◊ Have increased self-esteem
◊ You will have the space and the peace to explore what you need to do to fulfill your dreams;
◊ You will develop more resilience to help you face the challenges life brings you.
Always remember you are investing in yourself, sending a clear message “I am worth this!”  Confidence coaching aims to give you skills that you can use for life, in all areas of life. How much would you pay for a holiday? Coaching techniques will stay with you long after the holiday has been and gone.  Life really isn’t a dress rehearsal, and important things are worth investing in.
Personal Coaching sessions are bespoke and designed to suit your needs. The agenda belongs entirely to you, so the coaching sessions will be tailored to your own needs and each coaching programme created will be unique for you.
I offer coaching on a one-to-one basis, either face-to-face (dependent on location), via Skype or on the telephone. Please do get in touch to see if I can help you unlock your confident self, to help you achieve what you deserve.
