Hi, I’m Darren and I’m The Self-Doubt Coach.
I’m a geek who cares about people; I work with people who doubt themselves, hold themselves back and who want to transform their life. My mission is to help you get there.
But why should I be the one to help you do that? Good question!
Well, ever since I left education and started out into my working life, I’ve had to do it with very little support, encouragement and praise. It was like being the really weird member of the family nobody talks to because they have 2 heads and 6 eyes! One day though, all of that changed.
Here’s my story
I started as an electronics engineer but after 16 years I realised I wasn’t following my heart, so, I studied and moved into IT. I went back to studying and again the lack of support continued; even when I graduated my IT studies, I had almost zero congratulations. It was emotionally tough and lead me to doubt myself and my abilities. If others couldn’t see what I could do and how good I was then maybe my abilities were a myth.
During these times I trained hard and became British archery champion (twice), I held 9 national records and became a qualified archery coach. I’ve shot through sun and rain, got stuck in mud, and it was this time in archery that helped me with my self-confidence. Even after winning my first British championships, any compliment I received, I found myself answering awkwardly as I didn’t know how to take praise. One day I had an epiphany — I decided that the next compliment I received, instead of shying away from it, I would reply with “Thank you”. It was difficult, it felt very strange, but I did it. That was the beginning my self-confidence awakening.
It was time to make changes, and I started with my health. In 2013, I lost 95lbs, eliminated Type 2 Diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. All in just 7 months! I was reborn and I felt I wanted to help others make life changes too. I studied for a year and graduated in 2015 as a Certified Health Coach. Soon I realised that working on health wasn’t enough as mindset creates much more powerful transformations, so I learned the tools to help myself and others. These tools combined with my own intuition and life experiences allowed me to help others around the world.
But that still wasn’t enough! After much research it is evident that people doubt themselves more than is realised. They need help pushing through this. I rarely use the word “hate” but I hate seeing people holding themselves back from the life they desire because they don’t believe they can achieve their dreams. It hurts my heart and that’s why my mission is to help as many as possible to begin living life without limits.
I have helped people from the UK, France, USA, Canada, India and Australia to change their lives and now I’m expanding that!
