Truly focus on yourself and your business skills and competencies. Expand your know-how and resourcefulness to promote yourself effectively, grow your business and achieve an optimal work/life balance.
How I can help you with Your Business
I offer private business coaching and deliver professional development events for freelancers and self-employed individuals.
Working for yourself can be both immensely satisfying but also highly stressful and at times you are bound to feel somewhat overwhelmed and overstretched.
Working together we will make things easier for you to improve your business performance and clarify exactly what it is you need to do. I will help you feel in control, rather than overstretched, and develop a sound structure, an achievable plan and practical guidance to take things forward.
What to expect
Business Coaching is a confidential relationship in which we work together to deepen your learning about yourself and your business, moving you forward into action.
First we focus on gaining clarity on what matters to you and what exactly is required to strengthen your business.
Then we organise those multiple to-do lists, identify which conflicting work priorities you need to focus on next. I will support you in making those daunting decisions and tackling those tasks, to keep you on track in transforming your ideas into actions.
We will regularly review your business progress and provide clear direction by analysing your choices and setting tangible goals.
Together we address any obstacles or self-limiting beliefs that may be holding you back from achieving success and fulfilment.
After an initial discovery call exploring your current business situation and where you would like to take it, we will create a tailored option that would best support your business.
Generally, I recommend that we kick off with a high energy workshop which we will do in person. This will help you gain clarity, create a sound structure and a workable plan. Workshop duration can be: 90 minutes; two hours; or a half-day (3-hour) session.
Thereafter we can meet fortnightly for either half an hour or an hour to review your business progress, reassess your choices and reset tangible goals. These meetings will take place virtually via Skype/Zoom.
Like a personal trainer, a coach doesn’t do the work for you – I will support, encourage and challenge you. I will work with you to set goals based on your professional requirements and I will hold you accountable to achieve these goals which you will work on in-between the coaching sessions.
To fully experience the benefits of coaching and make substantial, visible progress, I recommend you commit to three months of coaching. We can discuss tailored options that would best support your business.

What my clients say...
"Danielle has been coaching our company since 2015. She is very effective, professional and has a personable manner.
She has helped to clarify short-mid- and long-term goals and supported us in a bespoke and individual way.
When necessary we ask for very intense support to help guide us through critical and timely milestones. Danielle has worked with us to see the bigger picture and develop the required steps to go from one achievement to the next".
"Danielle has performed an incredible job as a business coach for Chirovet. Her professional expertise yet personal feel has
made her an incredible help to me to find answers to difficult questions. Being a sole trader, strategic and tactical
management is key at all levels particularly for a small but very busy business. Danielle has provided valuable tools
across the field and helped to prioritise to make the business run smoothly, effectively and to the highest quality
for clients and myself . Thank you for all your help!"
"Danielle has put into place the structure around my Dream that ensures it will exceed my expectations, be well-grounded
and outlast me. We have been on an incredible journey together in developing a sustainable and profitable business
with The Georgian House Wellbeing Centre Ltd. Her phenomenal organisational skills and experience, coupled
with a tremendous sense of humour, have provided a safe place for me to land. As someone with a pioneering spirit my
visions and enthusiasm have a way of moving at a pace that requires a more level headed-person to help make them a
feasible reality. Danielle is that person who will literally help you reach for the stars whilst being firmly rooted in solid ground.
Professional Development Events
Co-hosted and co-presented with Liz Goodfellow of Wonder Women Network , together we run networking and professional development workshops designed for women who work for themselves.
Together we have created a collaboration called Fit for Business which is a fun, friendly supportive group for ambitious women who want more from the networking experience.
Our programme is designed to build business strength and improve freelance flexibility. We have a real passion for wellbeing and believe that nutrition, self-nurture and exercise are critical to being your best self as well as an essential part of your personal and business success.
During the events you will learn key competencies to boost your entrepreneurial endurance and provide a solid foundation for your business stability.
What our attendees say...
“I attend a number of networking events and this is unique in that there is also an opportunity for you to
reflect and grow as a business owner with support from Liz, Danielle and the other wonderful women in the group.
I learned so much from the ‘business wheel’ exercise about me and my business and I am eager
to continue to learn in the next sessions."
“Liz and Danielle have hit on something fairly unique for business women in Kent. The energy in the room was palpable,
without any pressure to network uncomfortably, you could see the room responding to the activity
Danielle and Liz had designed and applying it to their business aims.”
“This is networking with a difference. The energy of Liz and Danielle is so contagious and I left feeling energised
and enthusiastic about my business. So many networking groups are just about handing out business cards
and standing up to do your pitch. This offers something gentler but, at the same time, far more powerful - the chance
to build real relationships with like-minded women, whilst also learning something that will grow your business.”
