Each client testimonial below has been emailed to me by my client either during or after we worked together; these are all written in their own words, and shows their own experience of the coaching process:
After initially being sceptical, I have found the sessions of great benefit. They have been invaluable in facilitating the transition from associate solicitor to partner.
I am a keen runner and Natalie has helped me gain a fresh perspective on work by relating work matters to a running context.
I feel more relaxed and confident.
Jane Wheeler, Partner, Hine Legal solicitors
I first saw Natalie in June 2012. I had never previously had life coaching before and to be honest I was quite sceptical as I didn’t think I would see any of the changes to my life that I was desperately seeking.
How wrong was I?!
In a nutshell, the end result has been that my life has moved on far more in the space of nine months than it has ever done. I no longer feel that I will never achieve any of my goals or be the person that I deserve to be.
The sessions gave me clarity, focus and crucially challenged the way I think about things.
Natalie couldn’t have come at a more needed time in my life. I was in absolute turmoil with my thoughts and emotions and had so much going on with health, home and work and couldn’t see a way around dealing with things and had practically given up on myself in a lot of ways. I felt like I was stuck in a big black hole and unable to crawl out… now with regular sessions I’ve started to live and more importantly feel ALIVE and have passion for life again rather than just feel as though I just ‘exist’ or plodding along in life, so to speak.
I have come a very long way and dealt with a lot of issues.
I am very shocked in a pleasant way at the changes in my life, better attitude and approach to dealing with issues, that have enabled me to not only get a better and calmer balance in life but in turn helped me move forward and be motivated to take steps closer to achieving goals and also having achieved these in short spaces of time.
I know that I wouldn’t be where I am now without the help and guidance from Natalie. Natalie is so easy to talk to and especially for someone like me who finds it difficult to want to communicate issues, Natalie made me feel at ease and open up naturally and comfortably. I can’t thank Natalie enough for getting me to where I am today. Six months ago I would never have imagined that I would have felt as positive about things as I do today.
I would very much recemmend anyone with ANY issue in any context of their lives to go and see Natalie. I never thought I would go and see a life coach or NLP practioneer and somehow I did and it’s the best thing I ever could have done for myself to get me to a better place. THANK YOU SO MUCH NATALIE!
Working with Natalie was an interesting and enriching experience.
In a handful of sessions we managed to alter some deep-rooted beliefs.
Having turned up with extremely low self esteem, I left feeling incredibly centred and ready for anything.
I found Natalie through Google and found her to be the most professional, sincere and straight forward Life Coach after some searching.
Natalie came and delivered a short group session to a class of my students, all of whom are either homeless or are in temporary accommodation and all have some serious barriers to finding work.
So I would like to thank Natalie for working hard in creating a tailored coaching session on confidence building and how we can all change the direction of our lives. She was really put to the test by people who have very little to lose yet she successfully challenged and questions some deeply entrenched assumptions.
From this experience we have all gained a lot and I really look forward to going back over Natalie’s advice with the students and seeing what effects it has over the coming months.
Professional, direct, clear and down-to-earth; Natalie engaged with the whole group and has made a lasting impression with us all.
Sam Curtis, WorkSkills Tutor, City of Westminster College, London
Natalie is a brilliant coach and mentor. Through our sessions I have found her to be warm, insightful and committed to creating a positive impact.
I decided to get coaching because of bullying I experienced at school which left me unsure of myself. Now having worked through my issues with Natalie, I have a lot more clarity and confidence.
As well as this, I feel better equipped to deal with whatever life throws at me in the future.
I would thoroughly recommend Natalie’s life coaching.
I am very grateful to Natalie for helping me deal with my fear of flying so quickly and painlessly.
I started this process thinking I would have to say good bye to holidays abroad after developing a fear of flying over the past year. With Natalie’s help I have just flown to Berlin and I can proudly report I enjoyed it – even the bumps!
I have also worked with Natalie to develop my professional career and I have found her ability to make me think more clearly extremely valuable. She is a great person to know and I will not hesitate to get back in touch.
Claire Bolton, Employment Solicitor, Hine Legal, London
I was put in contact with Natalie through a Leadership Skills and Training Initiative. Over the past 11 months with Natalie’s assistance and guidance I have examined not just my attitude about myself but also how I can relate and inter-react with staff and networking situations. The final aspect related to looking ahead to the future and beyond i.e. retirement.
Has it been successful? In part, without a doubt, an immediate success. By making me take a long hard look at myself, concentrating on the positives and transferring those aspects to the negative side the improvement in temper and greater confidence gained as a result unquestionably.
In terms of the attitude to staff in terms of empowering and building their confidence a longer period of evaluation is needed to be sure but already I feel I can see signs of progress.
Would I recommend Natalie? An unqualified yes.
Simon Hildebrand, Partner, Sandrove Brahams, London
I could not thank Natalie enough for the support that she has provided me in the past 3 months.
With Natalie by my side, we’ve navigated through my frustrations, anger and resentment. The end of each session positions me back on the bike, wanting to take action and improve aspects of my life and my relationships.
Natalie’s ability to make me feel at ease when talking about difficult experiences made the coaching just that more personable. I feel like I’ve gained a friend for life.
I wanted to thank you sincerely for the great support you have offered me through these 8 sessions. I appreciate your style and mode of interacting and I think you are very competent and qualified in your field.
I wish I could converse with you on a daily base, imagine the luxury! Your friends are lucky.
I will see how everything looks like after summer and will get back with you for a continuation of some sort.
Thanks for all your help and if I ever feel I’m getting a bit lost again then I won’t hesitate to get back in touch.
I was in an unhappy relationship and was very confused about what to do and which path to take. I came to see Natalie for some clarity and professional, unbiased advice. I got both, in spades! I truly found working with Natalie a life changing experience – I’m in a much happier place from when we started working together. I would totally recommend Natalie to anyone looking for non judgmental advice on any aspect of their life that it making them unhappy.
You were a great help – I changed my weight from being overweight on the bmi charts to towards the middle of the healthy weight range, stopped smoking and got to the route of why I feel the urge to overeat when at home alone, something that baffled me and many therapists for years.
I also got some material recorded with my music and I’m really looking forward to rehearsing and playing with the full band. And I have some new plans for the new year which includes returning to my dance classes at Pineapple which is something I’ve really missed.
So yes, thanks for all your help and if I ever feel I’m getting a bit lost again then I won’t hesitate to get back in touch.
I have been truly amazed at how much more relaxed I have felt around people and in general the last few days, compared to how I would normally feel. For example, I was initially very anxious to go in to work on Friday because of how much I needed to accomplish that day. After I got off the call with you on Friday I felt so relaxed going when I was at work that I actually began to feel worried because it was so unlike me. I didn’t feel like myself at all. I even told my boss that I would be 5-10 minutes late to our meeting at 9:00am. I didn’t really have to do this, but I wanted to get a few other things done first that were a higher priority before we met.
Later in the day, I left another meeting 30 minutes early with my boss and a few others, even when I didn’t really have to. I just said I had to go because I realized half way through the meeting I was not going to be able to provide any more value and didn’t really need to be there. There were other things that I had to do, but I didn’t have to leave right then, I just knew my time could be better spent elsewhere.
My point is, I honestly never would have even thought about doing either of these things in the past. Mainly because I am so concerned about what others think, particularly my boss. These aren’t the only examples either. I feel like I have been hypnotized, and I have never experienced such a rapid change in the way I think and feel before. It almost doesn’t feel real in some ways, like it’s almost too good to be true. I just hope the change sticks.
I wanted to let you know because I was so excited.
Chris, San Diego
I feel as though I now have a different and more positive outlook in several aspects of my life and I am looking forward to continuing the journey over the coming months.
After I found myself unemployed during the recession, I decided to contact Natalie to see if she could help with my confidence in interviews.
I was not sure what to expect but found she had a real knack of getting to the root of a problem. After just a few sessions I became a much more confident speaker, able to cope under pressure and more comfortable in a professional environment.
I have now landed myself a job with excellent prospects.
The work we did will be invaluable throughout my career in terms of progression and promotion opportunities and I will not hesitate to contact her again when I have my next make or break presentation!
As an individual, I am not a big fan of talking about myself or asking for help but I found Natalie to be extremely knowledgeable and approachable.
I would recommend Natalie for any personal difficulties as well as professional issues as she is sensitive, highly intuitive and clearly an expert in her field.
Just wanted to thank you for yet another truly inspirational session this morning – you have really helped me re-evaluate my strength and position.
Vicki Edgson, Nutritionist, London
Natalie is unique in the sense that she is able to find the crux of the problem very fast and with an uncanny type of intuition that can possibly only come from experience and someone who is passionate about what she does. She has good insight and an ability to understand exactly what you need as a client.
I really liked that there was no time wasting and she uses many different techniques to challenge your thinking through a number of different methods.
As someone who is quite analytical, I found Natalies techniques very helpful and they definitely did challenge the way that I thought and therefore the way that I was responding to situations. I found that some of the exercises she gave me to do at home made me think differently … and not just the problem I had come to her with…
I would definitely recommend Natalie and would definitely come back to her if there were any other ”glitches” that I need help with! She is a talented and natural coach.
Thanks Natalie for your hard work!
I have only seen Natalie for a few sessions and already I feel really different. I have always worried about every small thing and lacked confidence in myself.
Since I have started to see Natalie I have taken a different approach to the way I interpret events and I no longer let negative thoughts take over my mind.
I think more positively about myself now and I can see others are already beginning to respond to me in a different way.
I’m very excited about all the changes and I am now beginning to see that I can be relaxed and in control of my life.
It has been a pleasure to be coached by Natalie for the past year. Viveka is an integrated healthcare practice and Natalie coached the directors of the company.
Her coaching was incredibly broad and she helped us with the nitty gritty of day to day organisation of Viveka, as well as looking at some of the difficult emotional areas we were experiencing.
Natalie is a marvelous team builder and she is not phased when the team in general or individual members of the team feel stuck or upset, angry or depressed. Natalie’s emotional insights were striking and very helpful and she helped the Viveka directors to unravel some of the organisational difficulties that had been present for many years.
We, the directors, now feel more confident and freer and coming to work is much easier and more optimistic. Viveka works well now financially and is profitable.
This, to a large measure, is due to Natalie and to the reorganisation that she helped create within Viveka. We intend to continue consulting Natalie during 2011.
Yehudi Gordon, Director, Viveka Integrated Health Centre, London
I have found my sessions with Natalie to be valuable helping me to focus on the challenges and difficult decisions I have had to make.
I have been able to use the sessions to work through situations and help to build my own confidence to achieve my goals. Being able to have sessions with Natalie has greatly improved my working life.
Megan Turner, Office Manager, Viveka Integrated Health Centre, London
An extremely intelligent and perceptive coach, Natalie’s expertise was invaluable during a difficult time for me.
Over three sessions Natalie gave me much needed perspective on challenges I had been facing in both my personal life and career along with a range of useful tools to help me build confidence and a positive outlook.
In May 2006 you helped with my career/life goals. Following the session with you I felt both relaxed and strangely at peace with myself. What I did not expect was what has been going on in my life since then.
1) I have given up smoking and drinking (other than the odd social drink)
2) In October 2006 I enrolled at Birkbeck College and 2 weeks ago I was awarded a Bachelor of Law Degree with First Class Honours
3) In August 2007 I received a call from Switzerland and this led to a retained contract with a Swiss software house
I know that at the end of the day success lies within the individual but sometimes even the best of us need help, thanks Natalie.
Thank you for providing some kind of catalyst that let me take these risks and the confidence to go with it. I am spreading some of your positive thinking to those around me.
Simon Howard, Partner, Morley & Scott, Hampshire
I had undertaken counselling for a year and I feel that it had made no difference in changing my life. I was desperate for changes in my life and had heard from a friend that coaching was very different and could work for me.
I found Natalie’s name on the Internet. Though I had other coaches ring me back when I made an enquiry when I spoke to Natalie I knew she was the right person. She was really friendly and flexible and I really appreciated that as I was short of time.
I was extremely sceptical that coaching would work and even more sceptical that my life could changing in 6 sessions but I can honestly say it was the best money I ever spent. My life has changed.
My outlook on life was holding me back and Natalie really helped me deal with that. I had been depressed for a long time but though I have not got the things that I thought would make me happy, I am so much happier than I have ever been without those things. At the same time my life is finally moving on.
I can’t recommend Natalie enough. She made a real difference in my life.
Natalie has been an invaluable help to me in clarifying my goals as I face some major life changes. Her practical advice enabled me to develop workable strategies for implementing longer term ambitions in manageable chunks.
Thanks to Natalie’s coaching, I soon found myself well underway with a project that had at first seemed overwhelming and impossible.
Natalie’s structured approach to the sessions meant that we were able to efficiently cover a lot of ground in each hour.
Natalie was consistenly supportive while at the same time always prompting me to move forward with my plans.
I warmly recommend Natalie as a Life Coach.
Katherine, London / Toronto
I was on the internet looking at hypnosis techniques when I came across Natalie Dee’s website and downloaded her free relaxation and empowerment mp3 and determined to listen to it to see if it had any effect on me.
I sat back, put the headphones on and then realised that I had finished listening to the download and felt strangely better. I had listened to other cds and none had affected me in any great way but Natalie’s had.
This intrigued me and I wondered if she could help me with some problems I had had from my childhood resulting from a bullying father and not having a mother to bring me up.
There was only one real problem to this: I live in Yorkshire and Natalie in North London. No problem apparently – it can be done over the telephone!! So – I arranged a session and waited for the phone call.
It came and I settled back and listened to Natalie and then realised that it was nearly an hour later. The same thing happened at our next session.
It is really strange – I used to have a problem with authority figures and think I was inferior to them – I don’t now. I mentally know that my childhood was unhappy but emotionally I feel it was a happy one and you need to know how comforting that is.
If you have a problem in your mind that affects your life, tell Natalie. Like Bob the Builder – she can fix it!
Roger Mariner, Yorkshire
My sessions with Natalie were both enjoyable and rewarding. Natalie has a talent for guiding the sessions in to areas that lead to a goal or objective being attained. I felt comfortable (ish!) discussing my personal strengths and weaknesses, which helped me appreciate how it’s easy to undervalue various elements of my life. All in all a very worthwhile experience and I’d recommend for anyone looking for a reality check on life.
Natalie is very skilled at coaching.
Not knowing what to expect she set me at ease quickly.
Results in my case were almost instantaneous (within minutes, not days, weeks or onths) and was enabled sensitively and with utmost discrection.
I heartily recommend her to anyone seeking guidance on their journey.
Spending time working together with Natalie gave me in a very short space of time a greater sense of empowerment in both the actions and decisions I needed to make both my professional and personal life.
The results were both immediate and positive but of even greater significance is the longer term value. This being written nearly two months after the last session finished, the impact is a continued sense of understanding, and wherever possible, application of the details important to my life.
When I first came to Natalie I knew that there was something I needed to change in my life but wasn’t sure what it was or how to do it. I had spent my time floating, frustrated at my own lack of action, lack of clarity and self doubts. When I now look back through the journal I kept and see the changes that have taken place over our time together I am truly amazed. This progress is a combination of her professional technique, tolerant nature and diversity of experience. Natalie draws upon a range of skills to help you get to where you want to be. While she won’t do the work for you, she’ll equip you one hell of a toolkit to help you get the job done.
With Natalie’s help I’ve managed to really identify what is important to me and in the process I have matured into the person I wanted to be. In our time together, I pulled my finances into order, put some old insecurities to bed and put a plan into action which leaves me ready to embark upon my dream trip.
Life without a coach can be great, but imagine how much better it could be with an impartial, informed guide to help you when the chips are down or the when the road seems blocked.
After only 3 meetings, we had overcome my initial scepticism and were seeing positive benefits. Natalie helped me to achieve success at work, and improved my confidence in social situations. I value the contribution that Natalie can make, and wish that I had met her 10 years earlier.
Being coached by Natalie is like talking to a long-trusted confidante who has instinctive and accurate insights in to my character, motivations and aspirations, informed by a comfortable but nonetheless challenging style of conversation to enable me to quickly gain a good, if not deep, understanding of where I want to get to with my life and work. She has help me clarify my dream, exemplify it through my actions and helped me to sustain my drive to realise it, tough though that is proving to be.
Malcolm Allan, Founding Director, Placebrands
Natalie provides a very holistic approach to her coaching by working with you on your attitude, energy, language, and overall actions.
Rather than just focusing on the activities and initiatives, we spent a fair amount of time reviewing my situation from “above”, to include all of the areas that make-up my personal environment. It’s no coincidence that I’ve recently made a significant career and personal life transition during our time together.
As a business leader who spends a significant amount of time coaching people in the workplace, it was a very inspiring experience for me to collaborate with someone of Natalie’s caliber, who has an incredibly unique approach to this craft!
Ross Dabrow, Vice President of Sales, Thought Equity Motion
Life coaching – sounds grand and something only available to top executives. Wrong – it should be available on the NHS! Natalie has made me realise that I already have many of the skills and methods required to make change happen.
The sessions made me think, at a much deeper level, about what is important to me and what would make me happier.
Making these changes happen was actually pretty simple after I stopped thinking that it was going to be difficult.
And the bonus – making a small change in one area of my life has had major positive affects on other areas.
Go on – treat yourself, it’s your life – get more out of it – see Natalie.
I started working with Natalie Dee at a stage when I felt a number of business issues were blocking progress for my company and for me personally. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but I went with an open mind and I found the whole experience not only enjoyable but highly effective.
Subtle changes in me were probably imperceptible to my colleagues, or even to me at a conscious level, yet the amazing improvement in the company’s fortunes in only a matter of a few months, is testimony to the work I did with Natalie which enabled me to reinvigorate the business from the top down. I couldn’t recommend Natalie’s coaching skills highly enough.
Tony Hewett, Managing Director, Lease UK Limited
Natalie has helped me to discover my true self. Through her gentle yet incisive guidance she has provided me with insight and understanding of who I am.
She has helped me to unlock my mind allowing me to use the tools I possess to maximise my potential.
Everyone needs a coach like Natalie. Those who are fortunate enough to have her as a coach will benefit tremendously from her expertise. Do yourself a favour and contact Natalie today… and soon you will be writing a testimonial like this!
Natalie’s coaching sessions provide a framework that help identify and attain goals that really mean something. The course of sessions has helped me to take more active responsibility for the direction of my life both at a business and personal level.
On the whole, I am very pleased with our sessions. We have come a long way, and your expertise and methods have been extremely beneficial.
You, personally, should receive a reward for being caring and understanding; not wasting any unnecessary time when I go off track. You care about others – their feelings and their financial predicaments. Simply put, you are fantastic.
What encouraged me to seek out a Life Coach for myself was that I felt as though there was something that I hadn’t learnt, a secret in life or something that would stop me feeling as though I was always second best, or the runner up prize. Something in me just kind of said “now is the time to get help”. I don’t really know where is came from but it was deffinatley there.
The three key benefits that I believe I received through the Life Coaching sessions were:
- Building up self-confidence
- Working on past beliefs that aren’t true
- Gaining control over negative emotions and learning to let go of them.
Would you be happy to recommend Natalie Dee to anyone else you know who would benefit from Life Coaching? OF COURSE!!!!!! I think that EVERYONE should see Natalie!”
This is only my third week of working with Natalie and the NLP techniques.
In this short space of time we had changed so many of my old habits and limiting beliefs, it is quite remarkable.
The changes within me have been instantly noticeable and very dramatic in the most positive of ways.
I would not hesitate in recommending Natalie and the help she can give to anyone.
Natalie has helped me to really focus on my life and business. I am now in a position where I know exactly what I want, when I want it and how to get it, all I have to do now is slow down and not to expect it all tomorrow.
I came to work with Natalie trying to resolve a problem that was bothering me for a long time, from our first session Natalie showed me different perspectives and new tools which helped me to move forward.
Natalie has a natural talent in understanding the main reasons for limiting behaviour and combined with her NLP practice, the sessions’ positive impact for me was invaluable and is still paying off in other aspects of my life.
I thought last night was an excellent session, definitely hitting the mark of what is important in my life at the moment.
On a number of issues, both work and personal, Natalie’s coaching and NLP techniques have had a dramatic effect on my life. I now have tools to overcome any problem and what’s more amazing is that these can be used at any time.
You can choose to change your life, so start by choosing Natalie Dee right now.
Natalie’s NLP sessions are enjoyable and get my brain working in a very different way. The result being that I feel invigorated at the end of a session.
