We can't wait to hear from you! Call us today and let us help you find what you're looking for.
I am Daisy, a Personal & Project Life Coach who works with a wide range of clients to help them live a more authentic and meaningful life. I do this through 1 to 1 sessions, short workshops and group programmes. I love working with my clients and seeing them transform and grow from the journey of Coaching. I trained and qualified in 2012 and have gone on to coach internationally over 500+ hours with personal clients, as well as support training courses with the Animas Centre of Coaching, and the alumni of Embercombes 'The Journey'.
My interest in coaching began when I started using coaching tools in my own life, at really difficult transition times of divorce, relocating, becoming self-employed and navigating parenting, to find a way forward to a more positive future and outlook. What I personally realised from those processes, and still do with my clients, was how it helped me to take ownership my life, create real positive change and enable me to fulfill my potential and live my life to the fullest. I was amazed at how simple questions and exercises of coaching can give you space to get perspective and notice the wisdom you hold within for new opportunities to emerge.
On a personal note.... I live in beautiful Sussex but work with people across the UK and world. I love travelling, having travelled extensively around the world, have 2 grown up kids, and also run a creative business called DaisyMay Sprays alongside my Coaching practice. I love connecting with nature, community gatherings, open fires, Hafiz poetry, my cat Martha and star studded nights!
To give you a context of my inspirations in life - I am an alumni of 'The Journey' at Embercombe, having visited since 2004, whose purpose is to be a powerful and innovative catalyst for the emergence of leaders and change agents who will take courageous action for a just, peaceful, and sustainable world. I'm also an initiate of the Women in Power programme, was main co-ordinator of the fantastic Pop Up Studio's art collective for 3 years and one of the 3 co-ordinators of the original Wildheart Gathering from 2009 - 2012 [running 6 events for 1,000's of participants]. I was also a core team member of the Buddhafield Family Retreat from 2007 - 2015 and am a contributor to the Buddhafield Festival since 2007 ongoingly. All these organisations have inspired me over the years in the work they do in the world and creating a more positive world for all.
It's an amazing honour to be a Coach supporting someones internal and external shift into the person or project they dream of, and then to see it manifest in the world! Again and again I've been part of this powerful journey alongside my clients, and working in teams, and its juicy, brilliant stuff!
Alongside coaching clients through transition times in their personal and work life I also get very excited about supporting projects that encourage environmental, social and community wellbeing and benefit the fast changing, progressive world we are stepping into. I'm a great fan of Gandi's quote...
"Be the change you want to see in the world"
Coaching is a very specific skill set and I'm pleased to share that I am a fully trained and certified Coach....
I am a fully qualified Personal Transformation Coach and Group Coach, having trained for a year with The Animas Institute, in London, and since qualifying have worked with a wide variety of clients on work and personal related themes over 100's of hours.
My coaching training is accredited and recognised by The International Coach Federation [ICF], The Association for Coaching [AC], The European Mentoring & Coaching Council [EMMC], with a European Quality Award [EQA]. Alongside ongoing coaching learning I also take time to be coached myself, and have done this with a variety of specialist coaches since 2007. This really keeps me focused and connected with what it feels like from the otherside as well as supporting me on a personal and business level to be the best I can be.
I honour the highest standards for ethics and confidentiality, in accordance with the International Coach Federation 'Code of Ethics'.
My past work is two-fold: I've been part of creating social and environmental projects for many years, particularly focused on projects that make an impact on communities and the world at large. Some of the projects I have been key in creating and involved in are: The WildHeart Gathering, Pop Up Studios, The Sacred Earth Project, Buddhafield Family Retreats, The Womens Mysteries Camp to name a few.
Since 1999 I have worked in the field of alternative health & self-care. Initially I worked as a multi-disciplined Massage Therapist & Healer, alongside teaching Yoga & Meditation for 14 years. This taught me a huge amount about how to create a safe, compassionate, sensitive space for honest, inspiring conversations to happen. In 2014 I retired from body work to create my Aromatherapy Spray company DaisyMay Sprays - focusing on nourishing the mind, body & spirit through aromatherapy, and now sell across the UK and at my online shop. My experience deeply informs my work in coaching and supporting other creative business's.
I also have been awarded an Honours degree from SOAS, University of London!
