“Having recently left my previous professional position to relocate to Brunei with my husband, I was considering starting a Masters degree in Anthropology. At the time, I was not confident in my ability to manage the research – I could only see obstacles and potential problems.Through coaching with Dana, I discovered that there was a solution to each issue. Instead of focusing on problems, we concentrated on my strengths and drew up a schedule in terms of goals, priorities and actions. I even identified and was energized to achieve related goals which were important to me at that time.”

“Partnering with Dana has been an amazing experience. She helped me transform the vision of my business into reality using techniques that were appropriate to my learning style. Dana pushed me outside my comfort zone and I now realize that moving through the fear and telling my story will serve a higher good – to motivate others to be the best that they can be no matter what. The acknowledgement, courage, and strength provided during our coaching sessions have generated enormous personal growth and enabled me to perform at my peak.”

“Although I didn’t have a specific goal at the beginning of our coaching relationship, it quickly became evident that working on developing my interpersonal skills would be beneficial.

Not only did coaching with Dana help improve my communication with others, but it also helped uncover some underlying beliefs and self-imposed limitations which were holding me back from leading a fulfilling life.

My eyes were opened to professional opportunities that were staring me in the face. The process has given me the courage to listen to my inner wisdom, the clarity to design an efficient path to my ultimate goals, and the confidence to execute right actions with conviction.”
