Your life is your choice. At work or at play the decisions you make shape who you are and affect the lives of those around you. Your choices can either keep you stuck going over old ground or take you forward to pastures new.
Your feet are the key to which way you go. Here’s why…
Last weekend the Royal Opera House hosted an open space forum discussion about the future of opera. Phelim McDermott, Artistic Director of Improbable Theatre Company and Director of the memorable ENO production of Satyagraha, has been running these events for 8 years and has wanted to ask this very question to the opera world for […]Continue Reading View All Posts
My personal experience has shown me that people live best when they know who they are and how they fit into the world around them. I believe that the answer to this lies inside each one of us. But because life can get in the way, you sometimes need someone else to come along and shine a light on what you already know, by asking the right questions and making the right connections.
I think of myself as a guide. You have the map. I’m here with a torch and a swiss army knife to get you where you want to go.
Working with Darren has enabled us to clarify our vision and take bold steps towards our goals. While sensitively guiding us towards clearer thinking, his positive energy and can-do attitude ensure a thoroughly worthwhile and enjoyable experience. I would not hesitate to recommend Feet First.
High Performance Coaching has been honestly life changing. Your boundless patience, forbearance and empathy (coupled with extraordinary expertise), blasted through pockets of hidden resistance to galvanise me into staking a path, in line with a clear purpose, resulting in all three aspects of my work to actually get up and running. Accolades Darren. You are a marvel. Thank you.
Darren was an amazing coach who helped me clarify my professional direction and help me build strategies to become more resourceful in times of uncertainty and stress. I will most certainly return to Darren for regular top-ups and refresh of my personal and professional goals and my direction
Darren helped me unlock what was bubbling inside me, trying to get out. He managed to wonderfully balance his listening, reflecting, coaching, knowing when to push me and knowing when to let me lead. Thank you.
The session with Darren was an important moment for our company. It not only gave us the room to think about our wider goals, but created a comfortable space for us to honestly share our issues and ambitions with the rest of the team. As a direct result, we feel refreshed and ready to make the world a better place! Would highly recommend Darren's coaching style to any new or seasoned company, it was warm, holistic and grounded in common sense.
Essentially you helped me view myself, my skills and my career in a new, clearer light, and I feel incredibly liberated from that terrible, misplaced need to define my "success" by how many singing jobs I'm being asked to do. Thank you for helping me see things so much more clearly! I am so very grateful!
As humans, we pride ourselves on our ability to reason getting so caught up in our heads we both fail to listen to our bodies and acknowledge how our personal history is imprinted within them and the effects this has. Darren’s method turns the volume up on what the body is trying to tell us so that a truly holistic healing process can take place.
My work with Darren has completely changed my world view. Through his guidance, questions and perceptive observations, he has helped me to become more generous, open and aware of the motivations behind my thoughts and actions both in my private and professional relationships. My focus and gaze have lifted and I am gradually learning how to live with, through and without the anxiety and stress which was pinning me down.
Working with Darren and his indescribable work is like holding a 3D mirror that has special features. A 3D mirror that shows you what’s going on for yourself from as many angles as you can imagine. Like normal mirrors, that clarity can be unpleasant and surprising, unexpected and delightful, but essentially without it you wouldn't have been able to work out what was actually happening.
