Something big is happening in the world today. We’re living at a time of unprecedented change – politically, socially, economically, environmentally. The old systems that have managed our lives are no longer working, we’ve lost trust in our leaders and lost touch with our certainty. Faced with all this confusion its easy to feel lost, stuck and like you don’t matter.
BUT YOU DO
Each one of us has something unique to offer the world – a vital, personal piece of the puzzle to contribute to the global transformation that’s taking place around us. You just need to find it, define it and let it out.
As US President Barak Obama famously said:
“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”.
I’m a coach, therapist, trainer and edupreneur, creating new models for social change based around education, culture and personal development.
My mission is to create a more connected, collaborative world in which everyone – regardless of race, gender, age, ability, sexual orientation or religion – can contribute the best of themselves to build a brighter future for our planet.
To do that I work with people and organisations to help them find out who they are and how they fit in the world so they can flourish and reach their true potential.
Potential is relative and personal – we may be equal but we are not the same. I’ll help you define success for yourself, clear the blocks that stand in your way and work with you to build an action plan to get you there.Find Out More
You are a Change Maker.
You believe in making the world a better place, supporting those in need, inspiring those who could and reminding those who can that there is a different way to do business.
You’re an artist, a teacher, a carer, an entrepreneur. You see the world differently to others and have a vision to create something that will enhance the lives of those around you.
You make beautiful things.
You tell stories.
You educate. You coach. You innovate.
You don’t easily conform, and would prefer to do things your way.
You work alone, in groups or as an organisation.
You’re young, middle aged and senior, male and female, able bodied and disabled, black, white, brown, gay, straight, follow all religions and none and from all the countries on Earth.
You respect others, live kindly and see our commonalities as well as our uniqueness.
You see the long view, respect our planet and care about the lives of all our children.
You’re just starting out, unsure of what to do.
You’re on your path and looking to maintain what you have.
You’re due a change and ready to expand.
You’re a leader, even if only of yourself.
You know in your heart that changing the world doesn’t have to mean abandoning yourself. You want to live with principles and also have the abundance to enjoy what this world has to offer. You want to make money, but not at anyone or everyone else’s expense. You know that really making a difference, singing your song and caring for others needs to be sustainable or the changes you make will fall by the wayside.
Without you – in it for the long haul, growing, evolving and flourishing – there is no change.
To be really effective in life you need to connect with yourself first. 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.
Whether you’re an individual or an organisation I believe the answer to this lies inside of you – in the aspects of your personality or the people in your team. 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.
Because we’re all at different stages I divide my work into four areas.
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.Work With Me
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 Darren.
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.
