I had spent a long time looking at the possibility of going to see a life coach. After many hours of trawling through articles about coaching, looking at different coaches etc, I decided to go for it. I came across Jude Daunt’s Life Coaching and something immediately told me this was the start of a positive journey for me. From the first chat, I knew this was going to be life-changing for me. Having spent a number of years suffering from diagnosed depression and anxiety, I had many ups and downs. I’d reached a place where I felt like this was it for me, I was destined to just ‘plod on’ through life, not really enjoying it, just doing what I had to do. I was teaching and had lost every bit of spark for life which I had once had. Speaking with Jude, I was supported to focus on my goals and visions (this in itself was something I had lost sight of). Her patience and understanding made me feel at ease and we began focussing on how I could reach the goals. It was not easy for me, but Jude was able to support me and nurture my goals as well as help build me up little by little, something which I was unable to do for myself. By gaining confidence and knowing I had such a strong person in my corner I began to look at life as something which I could enjoy. I have now made a career change and I am in the process of setting up my own business, I go out and socialise more than I used to and the most important thing – I am happy. I am not on an easy road, but having Jude coaching me and supporting me has made it easier. I am, for once, excited for the future. If you’re wondering if this is for you, I say go for it. I promise, you will not look back and you will start a journey to a happier, healthy you.
I found the life coaching experience and working Jude really positive. I enjoyed the simplicity of some of the concepts and techniques she shared with me. Our sessions have helped me manage some of the complex problems I’ve faced over the last few months and on the whole I feel a lot stronger and confident.
I found Jude’s website one night when work issues were keeping me awake and I emailed her at three in the morning! Working with Jude has helped me think more carefully about what I want and what I can do to achieve it. I had lost my feeling of control and Jude has helped to empower me to speak up for myself and take control. Jude has fantastic people skills; she is warm and approachable and her enthusiasm is infectious. I would recommend life coaching to anyone and Jude is really prepared to go the extra mile to support you.
I was in my mid-20s, just got a new job, new car, new house, moved in with my boyfriend and everything seemed perfect on the outside. However, I felt deeply unstable and unhappy on the inside. Depression and anxiety really don’t come with warning signs and can affect anyone at any time! I feel lucky to have found Jude at the right time in my life. Jude has really helped me regain control of my career, personal & professional relationships and well-being. Its been a few months since my last session with Jude and I can really notice the long-term positivity in my life.
I decided to visit Jude when I felt I hit a brick wall in my life and couldn’t find a way around it. As you can imagine I was a little apprehensive at first, but Jude was extremely welcoming and after my first session I felt completely at ease with her. A few sessions later I could see a way of taking down that brick wall! It did take time, yet Jude helped me unravel my issues and I was able to find ways of dealing with them. Taking small steps and having goals slowly lifted my anxiety and made me realise I can do this. I couldn’t recommend Jude enough to help anyone who feels stuck in their life, no matter what the issue, she is a breath of fresh air and pleasure to be with. I still visit Jude on the odd occasion for what I call ‘my life booster’. It is easy to slip, yet she is happy to pass you a hand and help you back on your way. Thank you Jude! You have been amazing over the past months
Having come to a point in my life where I needed advice and guidance I found Jude at the wellbeing fair in Newcastle. I decided to make an appointment and have not looked back from making that decision. Jude helped me to have a clear view of my career hopes and dreams and from her calm and informed approach I was able to act decisively and as a consequence, my career path has changed and I am happy. She helped me to view life calmly and with clear thoughts. I am in a better place for having met Jude and working with her. She has been and will continue to be an inspiration. I recommend her without reservation.
I tried life coaching with Jude to help with stress when everyday life got too much/ hectic. A year on and I continue to use the coping strategies keeping stress levels under control. I can start focusing on goals now that I can deal with everyday stuff. I have the odd top up session every so often to make sure I’m sticking to focusing on me and not getting bogged down with day to day tasks.
Working with Jude was great. I particularly valued her positive and focused approach. We covered a lot of ground in seven sessions. The main benefits were helping me to clarify my medium-term career goals and developing a structured action plan to realise them. She combines positive thinking and encouragement to ‘think big’ with practical advice and support.
I decided to give life coaching a try as I was tired of just plodding on in my job, and never fulfilling what I really wanted to do. Trouble was I wasn’t sure what I really wanted to do, or how to get there. All I knew was that I was tired of ‘making do’. I had dreams of running my own business but wasn’t sure which direction to go in, and how to get started. I knew what my obstacles were (money, family life, fears of it not working etc) but just couldn’t seem to find a way around these obstacles. Jude changed all of that. Once we had established what my dreams and goals were and how I would get there, suddenly everything became so much clearer. I realised I was putting up the obstacles due to fear, and Jude helped quash my fears. I now feel so much more free of fear and figured if I want a better life, I was the one who could make it happen and I am now well on the way. Yes, my fears still creep back now and then, but I won’t let them stand in my way now. Thanks to Jude.
I have been so pleased with my sessions of Life Coaching. I was really mixed up when I went to see Jude. life coaching certainly makes you think differently, and approach your life in a different way. Once I had written my goals down I felt so much better, then I put to use the information I had learnt. It has certainly changed the way I look at life now and Miss Daunt was remarkable in helping me find what best to do to get to the bottom of my problems. I also found the sessions very calming. After session one I tried to put to work the goal setting techniques that we went through. Little by little, the problem started to be not a problem at all because I had conquered my demons. I certainly felt elated after my sessions because I could see light at the end of the tunnel. Really just talking to my Life Coach from the very first day, I started to feel a weight lifted off my head. I am certainly very pleased I embarked on the life coaching journey…
The Coaching sessions helped me to step back from problem situations and see the possibilities I had before me. It is helping me to rebuild my relationship and reassess my perceptions of where I was and where I was going. My relationship still has its problems but communication has improved dramatically. Having found this new direction I feel my life is turning a corner.
A massive thanks to Jude, she has helped me get my life back!! When I went to see Jude I felt lost and alone, I felt I had no choices in my life and everything felt a mess. With Jude’s help, I began to see my worth and that I had so many choices, she helped me see my potential and whilst it takes work and effort I’m now well on my way to achieving all I want from my life.Thanks Jude!!
