Hi, I’m Darren, The Self-Doubt Coach. I’m a geek, mindset coach, lover of laughing, ex British archery champion and holder of 9 national records. I’ve had 3 careers, electronics engineer, IT support (+ video and audio editing, theatre tech), and now I’ve finally found my true path.

Although I started out in a technical career, I’ve always been someone who people come to to talk, for advice and for help. It was a natural progression and a following of my true path that I studied to become a coach.

So here I am, The Self-Doubt Coach helping you to break through your limits, go for those dreams that have been such a big part of your heart and transform your life. Those goals and desires you have are indeed achievable but many of us either don’t know how to get there or are too scared to make the leap.

I know those thoughts, I’ve been there myself.

Do you recognise any of these?

  • You dread going to work each day
  • You feel stuck in life
  • You want to make a change but yo’re scared
  • You want to make a change but don’t know how
  • You know in your heart there’s more to this life
  • You feel like something is holding you back
  • You want to scream out “I NEED MORE!”

Just a few short years ago I resonated with ever single one of those! I don’t use the word hate but I actually hated going into work each day and I couldn’t see any light at the end of the tunnel.

I made the conscious decision to change my situation, to follow the path of my dreams. I was already a certified coach and it was time to do what I’d been doing all of my life, help people and change lives.

The list above isn’t a life sentence, it doesn’t define your future! The list above is a starting point that you will see drift into the distance as you begin making the changes you never thought you could.

All that starts when we work together!

Self Worth

We seem to be constantly told we’re not good enough, not skinny enough, not beautiful enough. Let me tell you, you ARE good enough and together we will prove that.

Low Confidence?

We all have those dreams of us going out there with confidence, living the life you desire. There are many things around us that try to push our confidence down but they can be overcome and we can step into our spotlight once more.

Lacking Motivation

We’ve all had those times where we know what we need to do but lack the motivation to actually go do it. Together we can find that drive again.


Darren has been a great coach and a friend, he got me at a pretty sensitive time and he gave me the space and time I needed,now looking back it was so vital. Darren makes you look a little bit deeper at yourself but is always there to support you, even when I was about to throw in the towel he made me see what I could do and encouraged me. I know I would not have made it through last year if I hadn't of had Darren there. I am so grateful and thankful that I was brave enough to step outside my comfort zone at that time and get in contact with Darren, best choice ever. I can say you are in saf hands with Coach Darren.


Darren is a refreshing light and energy that gently yet purposefully kept bringing me back to my goals and breaking down barriers I had put in my way. I would recommend Darren to my friends. His passion and personal story are an inspirational testimony of the human spirit in action!!! I would recommend Darren to fellow coaches who need a positive supporter as they stretch and grow in their profession. Darren's support as a coach and study group leader were off the charts... he leads by example in all he does!!


I would describe Darren and a positive role model who has become a very special friend to me. He is an amazing coach who knows how to get the best out of people so that they can move past their obstacles. The sessions are so relaxed and Darren is so friendly and approachable. Each session with Darren flew by and I always looked forward to my next session. He always gave me small action steps to implement at the end of each session and each of those small steps has added up to me feeling so much better about my abilities to help others. I would recommend Darren to anyone who wants to improve their confidence.
