“Being coached by Darren has been a journey where so much positive has happened to me. When I started my conversation with Darren, I had been exhausted for a long period, and I also was stuck in several ways in my life. Darren saw and captured that, which resulted that he coaching me to create better habits when it came to my diet, my health, my feelings, my thoughts, and my business…
For me, it was a must to change my life in several areas. Without having good habits when it comes to my diet, my physique, my health, it is difficult or rather impossible to run my own business. I’m impressed that Darren saw so quickly what areas of my life I needed to change to feel good.
What I appreciate about Darren is that he has the broad knowledge that makes him see the whole of me as a person, and what I need to work on. Not what I want – but what I need, it’s important. I would not have the progress I have made during these weeks if I had been coached in only one area.
Everything in life, in everyday life, is interconnected and I am incredibly grateful for all the tools, all the insights I gained through Darren and his coaching. Big Thanks, Darren!”
“I’m usually quite a strong and grounded person but when I went to see Darren I was feeling off course and vulnerable and couldn’t identify what was at the heart of it. Within a couple of sessions Darren helped me gain clarity on what was troubling me, the steps I needed to take to resolve it and the momentum and self belief to see them through to make the change I needed. Darren was amazing throughout – full of energy, humour and 100% commitment to help me with my shift. I really can’t recommend him highly enough to anyone feeling stuck in their life, who feels as though they need to press the “refresh” button but doesn’t quite know how to go about it.”
“I was recommended Darren’s help when I needed life coaching. From start to finish Darren offered thoughtful, insightful guidance. On meeting he was immediately easy to get along with and listened intently whilst I explained my situation. Talking to him provided me with focus; enabling me to clarify my objectives and believe that I’m able to overcome past issues in order to realise my potential. Darren genuinely cares about the people he works with and I definitely recommend his service.”
“Joined two group coaching sessions led by Darren and it was probably one of the best things I’ve done for my life and career. Darren asks difficult questions and give you the tools to answer them for yourself instilling the confidence in you to trust yourself and your answers. He sees each person for who they are and even in a group setting, takes the time to support each person individually.
In the first session we focused on addressing the personal experiences and thoughts that hold us back and techniques to change that and in the second session we focused on setting goals and being focused on achieving them. The encouragement, the focus, the techniques used to dig deeper and find what truly makes me happy and the how to battle my fears and be more confident in myself have helped me change the way I treat my professional life in the space of a few weeks!
And not only does he do an amazing job but it’s clear that he genuinely cares – and that makes all the difference.
I couldn’t recommend Darren highly enough.”
“Darren very kindly offered to provide his life coaching services to my organisation to help our staff with their health and well-being. The session Darren held was both enjoyable and informative and gave us all some useful tools to help us to improve our health and to challenge our pre-programmed thinking.
I would recommend Darren as a life coach and I believe that he can definitely help people to achieve their individual goals.”
“Heathbank met Darren through a friend who was a supporter of our charity and he knew that we support adults with learning disabilities in day centre environment. On our first meeting i was inspired to see how Darren could help our team. We spoke at length about the benefits to the team and how positive thinking could help towards greater communication. On our team building day Darren worked on strategies that work for Heathbank and he invited staff to share ideas, tools and plan for our future. Some staff where slow to start but eventually with some encouragement from Darren it started to flow and ideas where being created. I feel it has helped my team to build on there confidence and approach to others in the work place. Thank you Darren.”
“DCR delivered a fantastic workshop on improving management skills for a group of our Project Managers. They all found it extremely beneficial and have since been putting the skills and advice learnt in the workshop into practice.”
“Darren was recommended to me after I was searching for coaching with my body weight problem. I was impressed with the way he looked after me from the very beginning. With Darren’s Coaching I have been able to shed 3.5 stone now in 6 months. I still have 2 stone to go and am continuing to receive Darren’s help. What I wanted to say is that this approach is very different to what I have done or heard before, I was a little sceptical at first but I was sold on it after my first week. I lost 7 lb in 7 days and actually felt more energised which was something I was not expecting. Thank you Darren, your a star”.

“I met DCR at one of his events in London and was impressed enough that I took coaching 1-2-1 with him afterwards. I had issues with my money situation in that I did not have any plan whatsoever for the future and it worried me. I worked with DCR for 2 months and that was last year, in writing this testimonial I am now not only earning more money than before I met him but I also have a plan or strategy as he calls it in place for the next 15 years and I feel very confident and relaxed now about my future”.
David. Age 38. Bethnal Green
“Our son had been repeatedly bullied at school and had become a bit reclusive and we worried enough that we searched for someone to help our son. We tried a few different so called therapists but no one really sorted the problem for our son Pryian. Then we were recommended to Darren’s services by a work colleague of my wife. We met him and explained the problem, he spent a total of just over 3 hours with Pryian and told us to contact him again if we needed any more help. We were not sure if he had actually helped our son after he had left, our son said he felt better about going back to school but we were still apprehensive. It has now been 3 months and Pryian is back to being his usual self again. He is not afraid to go to school and seems to have gotten over his past. We are very impressed with how Darren helped our son so easily and quickly”.

“Darren was just fantastic at supporting us during our crisis time in our business. I hired him to come in and shake up the work force of 50 people we had in order to inject some improved work performance. And I am happy to say it worked. We did a catch up with Darren 3 months later to cross check and the difference in income was a measurable one. We continue to use Darren’s services on a on going basis. We would recommend his service unequivocally”.

“My problem was that my partner and I had grown apart and we wanted to rekindle the flame between us. Someone we know recommended Darren and so we approached him for his advice. Me and my partner met with him and it felt very easy to talk to him about our difficulties. We had approximately 5 sessions with him because every time we had a session we found another something that seemed to come up. I can happily say that now my partner and I are enjoying a mini honeymoon period. My partner was not sure he wanted us to have outside help but even he says now it was a very good decision”.
“Hello my name is Timothy and I want to say that I used Darren for his career coaching service about 5 months back. I was debating what to do after leaving University and I just could not make up my mind, my parents could not help me so they hired Darren to come and see me. It was very revealing and I had no idea how much it would help me to understand what I wanted in life, after the 4 sessions i had i honestly felt better and clear on what to do. Since then I have taken Darren’s advice and am now in a job i am loving to bits. Darren is very good and has become a friend”.
Timothy. Age 19. Stratford
“As a Doctor I spend very long hours at hospital 6 days a week, I live off cigarettes and coffee mostly, I knew this was bad but continued to do until I got a rude awakening a few months back, I had a minor black out period on duty and it made me search for a solution. I came across Darren on a health search on the web and liked what I read. I talked to him not knowing quite what to do or how I could be helped. He basically redesigned my days, showed me ‘I’ was in charge and gave me very specific nutritional and exercise advise that I put in to action. My energy has now increased, I am more emotionally balanced than previous and my body weigh has even gone down a size. I have been very impressed with his expertise in this area”.

“Darren is just on a different level to all the other coaches i have used, he delivered as promised which is rare in my experience and he gave my fee to a Charity which is so strangely good”!
Nadine. Age 38. Stoke Newington
“I saw DCR advertised on google and really liked his way of handling problems so i got in touch and we met up to discuss my situation. I have been scared of closed spaces all my life and now being 34 i wanted to get over this fear and move on. DCR worked with me and all i can tell you is that i no longer have the fear! i am continually pinching myself to check i am not dreaming as i am still getting use to being free. but anyway he is simply marvellous and such a cool guy too”!
Jessica. Age 34. Harrow
“Thanks to Darren’s help our daughter has recovered remarkably well after her illness and we attribute that mostly to the advice given to us by Darren, we were unsure exactly how he would be able to help our daughter after her operations but we can happily say the his guidance and continued interest has been one of the major factors in her recovery. Darren is considered more than just a Coach to us, he is our friend”.
Michael. Age 62. Wimbledon
“Hello I’m Daniel from Chigwell. I hired DCR to help me with my problem to do with my relationship with my parents. I have always had a poor connection with them and have always felt overpowered and controlled by them. I wanted to be able to stand up for myself and have more independence. He made me realise that I am the one actually letting them do this, which was very insightful for me as i always thought they were the problem. I now understand the whole situation a lot better and can report that since working with DCR i have developed greater confidence in myself, i have also started standing up more to my parents and it is so liberating”!
Daniel. Age 23. Chigwell
“I needed more confidence in my self. I have always been a relatively shy individual but my new job meant I would be around a lot more people so i felt it was time to overcome this. My problem started years back when my husband left me for someone else and I became a recluse and had severe depression. I eventually got over that but have been afraid and un-confident since then. DCR was simply fantastic, he made me feel so relaxed and comfortable. He helped me over several meetings to come out of the shyness and be more assertive. I now am much more relaxed in public and even enjoyed a social night out recently, the first in a long time. Thank you so much Darren”.
