Performance Coach - Suffolk, Essex and London

Did you know that 82% of managers who enter management positions have not had any formal management and leadership training?

“These are individuals who are promoted to run a team simply because they are popular, good at their job, or happen to be available to take charge. We know what can happen next. Within weeks, productivity and team spirit plummet as the new boss finds themselves out of their depth.... They are accidental managers” says a CMI Report: ‘Taking Responsibility - why UK plc needs better managers.’ October 2023

Does this sound familiar?

Do you have managers in your company or organisation needing support to cope with the messy day to day reality of managing the people who now report to them?

If so you’ve come to the right place. I was once thrown in at the deep end, and now have over 20 years' experience of coaching others to bridge the gap between HR policy and everyday operational performance. Please see my LinkedIn profile to learn more about how I can help. I’d love to hear from you.

Do get in touch to discuss your requirements. You can email me at or book a complimentary call from this page.

Write a review

I learnt that there are strategies available to help me to cope with stress, such as tapping, breathing exercises and also using art to channel my feelings. I also learnt that a lot of the time, I have the answers to my own problems but that it is helpful to have a supportive person there such as Diana to help guide you through your thoughts and feelings. I learnt that I am a smart and capable person who knows myself quite well, and that I can take a step back to think about what strategies I have subconciously put in place for myself already, and use those to build more helpful routines both in and out of work. I learnt new ways of thinking about communicating. Diana is such a friendly, understanding and supportive person who truly made me feel it was okay to be honest and forthcoming. She was able to see the truth behind my words, and encouraged me to use my creative side to better 'put thoughts to paper' so to speak, which was very interesting and helpful for me. Diana didn't hesitate to make me aware when I was being stubborn or only thinking about things from my own point of view, which I appreciate and think is important. She is enthusiastic and came across as having a genuine interest in me, I felt properly heard and didn't have to worry about being misunderstood or overlooked. A really fantastic coach, the best I have had in a slew of therapists / councillors etc.


Working with Diana is inspirational. She cuts through the noise, and gets to the heart of the matter safely and empathically. She provides the framework within which you do the work - and she holds you to account! Working with Diana is challenging, rewarding and fun. JL (IT consultant and Transactional Analyst)
