What clients say:


“I was called to the Bar in 1998 and specialise in clinical negligence and personal injury claims.

When I started working with Diana I had some terrible work habits. I would generally work late every week night and always worked at least one day each weekend. Working late meant that I would eat late and therefore I would go to bed late, as a result of which I was chronically sleep deprived and hopelessly inefficient. With Diana, I have gradually replaced each time wasting or procrastinating habit with new tools and techniques that have given me a social life and the time to achieve other personal goals. I know that I am not alone in this.

The bar is full of stressed, tired, individuals, struggling to work efficiently in an environment that is largely without structure. Unfortunately, this often means working long hours, inefficiently, and losing all control over work/life balance. In short, this is a profession in real need of Diana’s help”.

Barrister, Hardwicke, Lincoln’s Inn,

We were extremely impressed with the content of Diana’s seminar and subsequently invested in 5 sessions so that every company member could reap the benefits, and are offering the whole team a follow-up session. Since the workshops encouraging changes have been made and project teams have been created to address other issues that were identified. Mixing the groups up was beneficial to mutual understanding.

Diana helped me get an extra hour a day, which I spend with my wife and my family and now my kids know who I am and my wife is actually talking to me!

After just the first 2 phone coaching sessions, my Head of Project Management complimented me on my new ways of working: not only was she impressed with me scheduling all my ‘must-dos’ to eliminate the risk of forgetting anything, but she has noticed I’m rushing less and more in control thanks to my new organisational skills. After 4 weeks I noticed how much more I’m fitting into each day.

Tom Kelly, Project Manager


Diana’s perceptive questioning and exercises enabled me to discover what was draining me and to rewrite my day to achieve as much but have more personal time. This restored my work life balance, which in turn increased my productivity and eliminated my feelings of stress.

Excellent, enjoyable and relaxed session, which offered us tangible tasks and tools that will make a big difference to our effectiveness, which is why we have committed to rolling out the sessions for the whole 60+ workforce.

“Diana’s mentoring has been critical to the rapid expansion of my business. She has greatly improved my communications with clients and colleagues and motivated me to convert procrastination into making and finding time for prioritised actions”.

Mark Parkin FIDTA, Dance Teacher

“Ironically enough, I even found it hard to find the time to sit down with Diana, however once I did it really changed my life. The session enabled me to look at my work life balance and realise that I am not superwoman and that something had to be done to create a balance. Since our session I have put the discussed criteria into place and have seen a huge change. I feel more in control, I have expanded my horizons and realised ambitions, and all those around me seem happier – husband and children included. I highly recommend going through such a process, it is truly enlightening.”

Melanie Morton, Director
Clarion Communications


“Diana helped me identify my key areas of work and ascertain whether I had what was important to me. She helped me identify solutions to problems and plan how to achieve those solutions. Her methods guided my own thought process to make me understand why I needed to address certain issues to make my work life better”.

Helen Jenkins, Senior Legal Counsel
Japan Tobacco International


I was looking for a promotion but I was told unless I could manage my time more effectively it would never happen. By implementing 7 of Diana’s strategies I got the promotion I wanted and now I finish work on time".
