Further information

A small selection of my client testimonials:


Working with Diane is such a positive and rewarding experience; I overcame a [20 year] fear of driving. Within a very short time I am now able to drive confidently and calmly on a daily basis and my life has changed for the better. The pre-session tasks were simple and very effective. The session itself was quite easy, relaxed and insightful and the post-session support was of great help.

Motivation & Negative Emotions

I have a different perspective on life and can look at things objectively The session has made me a much happier more content person who can finally think about people and the past in a different light.

[The work I completed with Diane] was aimed at improving my happiness at work. One thing I found very useful was the directness and speed with which the issues were addressed. Also, the precision Diane was able to focus on very specific experiences and change the way I think about them. I visited Diane twice in the space of a few days. In that short time, the work we did changed the way I think about a number of difficult experiences. The work I completed with Diane has completely removed these difficulties and has been a real benefit to me.

I have a better understanding of myself and what I want to achieve with my life, I am far more positive and I actually like myself, I feel good and have more energy. My friends and family can also see the change and cannot believe the difference I would certainly recommend you to others.

Diane Oxborough is an exceptional coach. She has the ability to put you at your ease and free you to tackle your greatest challenges. She had the intuitive knack of asking me exactly the right question with precision timing. Throughout the time we worked together, she has enabled me to push the limits I thought I had on my capabilities and to achieve things I formerly thought were unattainable. My business productivity has increased, alongside a phenomenal confidence to succeed. The effects of Diane's coaching have stretched well beyond the time we worked together and beyond the scope of the coaching focus we had. I didn't realize just how much I needed coaching until I had it. The best decision I have ever made, and I am receiving her fee back time and again with the new business that I have generated. In addition there are a range of intangibles associated with a greater sense of purpose and a heightened decision-making capability.

Panic Attacks

When I contacted Diane I was at my lowest. I had no life; I couldnt go out, couldnt do things with my family. I couldnt even take my daughter to school. As soon as I spoke to Diane I knew she understood and would help me. I must admit, I felt so bad I didnt think it would work. I trusted Diane and she gave me my life back. The first day I walked my daughter to school I felt on top of the world, she was so happy! I am more positive than ever before. [The Breakthrough Session] was the best thing Ive ever done. Thank you, Diane, it will never be enough for what you did for me.

Anxiety & Self-Esteem

[Working with Diane] was eye opening! The work was thorough and at times, challenging. The results were quicker than I expected. As a result of the sessions, I believe I do deserve the position I am in at work and Im able to work with confidence. Im in control and I feel better!

High Blood Pressure & Stress

I consulted my GP because I was having problems with chest pains and breathlessness. His diagnosis was stress and I tried anti-depressants but they caused terrible problems with side effects. My GP provided your contact details. I must confess that I had doubts about hypnotherapy, but the first consultation dispelled these. I found that I could relax. The technique was simple but very effective. I felt so good and I found later that I would enjoy equally good results at home. I am much clearer and have become more positive in my thinking and outlook on life.

Smoking Cessation

After several failed attempts [to stop smoking] I decided to go and see Diane. Throughout the session I felt completely in control. [The session] enabled me to think differently towards smoking and I havent touched a cigarette and have had no cravings since that day. The stress management techniques have also been a great help. I feel happy, energetic and motivated, especially as I was able to maintain my diet and even increase the amount of exercise Im doing. Thanks so much, I really dont feel I could have done this on my own and I highly recommend Diane to anyone who is serious about quitting smoking.
