I have known Judith for a couple of years now and we have always got on really well because we both call a spade a shovel! I love being with Judith because she is great fun but also because she is so honest and upfront! I have never had any waffle from Judith, never has she told me something just because it was what I want to hear and I look forward to the conversations with her about business as well as life in general. When I was thinking about getting myself some professional business coaching, I didn’t even consider anyone else, it had to be Judith, not only because I know her but I trust her! We started our meetings and our conversations were seldom just about business, then again, business isn’t just about business is it! We have thrown many ideas into the pot, I’ve tried some of them and not tried others but I always come away thinking about new things to do to develop my business. One conversation we had was about the business networking group where we first met. I was saying how I missed networking and that I hadn’t really found one that I liked. Judith’s answer wasn’t that I should try another one, it was “Well set one up then!” Which is just what I did! If you want to hear a lot of fluffy waffle about what a fantastic person you are, how great your new hair-do is or how wonderful your business idea is don’t bother going to see Judith but if you want rigorous honesty, blunt truths and the odd kick up the backside, Judith is the best person for the job.Glynn Burrows, Norfolk Tours
Judith has been incredibly supportive and given me the space to think through issues. She always listens to what I have to say and is very perceptive in her comments. Her empathy is second to none and she is very intuitive. Working with Judith always makes a huge difference to me. Usually when I have a coaching session my mind is cluttered and I’m not sure what I want or how to go about it. Judith always asks the right questions so that my mind becomes clearer and I know which direction I want to go in. She gives me the confidence I need to trust my instincts and follow my path. Her questions are always on the button – she always knows exactly what to ask me so that I can start thinking about what is really important to me. I would definitely recommend Judith as a coach!Karen Field
Before I had coaching with Judith I was very sceptical about it. I had always felt uneasy talking about private issues and had felt it was an unnecessary self-indulgence. I had always coped with painful issues in my life by burying them deep inside. When Judith started coaching me I was really pleased to find that it was non-threatening and it didn’t make me feel critical of myself. Instead, it made me question the choices I had made in life, even though those choices weren’t making me happy. I really enjoyed the sessions but didn’t realise how much it would continue to benefit me even months afterwards. It was a bit like having a really honest conversation with myself! I found Judith to be encouraging and supportive and I gained a lot of clarity. I would definitely recommend Judith.Mrs W
Having recently split up with my wife I had no idea where to turn or what direction my life was going in. After a session with Judith she helped me realise that I have done some things on my own and I was on the right course to get things back on track. She has also instilled some much-needed confidence in myself, which has been lacking in my life for quite some time. It was the first time that I’ve had a session like that; it really helps – if only I had seen her years ago. Look forward to the next one. Thank you Judith.Mr Christopher Leggitt
Judith Flowerday (Dare To Fy) offers her customers a truly individualised service that digs below the surface of behaviour to identify real issues of need. She does this with kindness, patience and a sense of humour, supporting individuals to make real life changes.Alyson R
After 2 years of so called coaching with another business mentor where I felt it was more about the coach than it was about my business Judith has been a breath of fresh air. In just one session Judith made clear everything which before lacked focus and helped me design a plan which became an achievable timetable of things which needed doing in my business to get me going forward. Judith was quite happy to be accountable, gave me untold amounts of support and help when the mountain seemed impossible to climb and has continued to give me the essential leg up when I am faced with an obstacle. Judith’s questions, no matter how uncomfortable they are to answer, do find answers and rather than say I am going to do xyz in a certain time frame she helps to get to the crux of the matter and find the way in which to achieve the objectives. With Judith’s help my business is not just on the runway and ready to fly, it’s already flying.Ruth P
I had a coaching session with Judith Flowerday which was extremely helpful and supportive to me. She helped me to plan and organise achievable goals and helped me to see how to overcome problems which were holding me back. It was great to receive it in a written document which helps you to reflect and remember. She is very enthusiastic, friendly and has a professional approach, and I found her easy to talk to. She also makes you feel relaxed and has a great sense of humour. I would recommend Judith for coaching and wish her well in her business.Anastacia Tohill
Judith Flowerday is a gifted development coach, who works from the heart. Her understanding of the human personality is 'second to none.' After a session with Judith I felt more able to deal with past matters and had renewed confidence to deal with any future situations that may arise. I feel that Judith's coaching would be of great benefit to all, and would, therefore, heartily recommend her.V
I started seeing Judith after the breakdown of my marriage and a time of immense distress and uncertainty. Judith was patient and supportive and helped me sift through all the uncertainty to identify some really practical solutions to my problems. After only 4 sessions with Judith, I felt more confident, capable and able to cope.Mrs Owen
Judith is like a breath of fresh air. Feeling as though I was backed into a corner in various areas of my life, I sensed I was beginning to lose a sense of who I was, and as a result was failing to fulfil my full potential. I sought Judith's skills and expertise to help me identify and address the inner conflicts and beliefs that were hindering my ability to satisfy my inner values, and preventing me from daring to dream of a more rewarding life. After the first session, Judith made me realise that although I felt in a corner, there were also 'doors' and 'windows' of hope and opportunity, and I just needed to face my fears and find the confidence to venture through to the other side. I find that Judith's keen intuition, calm reassurance, and strong empathy allows me to explore and face my fears and limiting beliefs with support and guidance, in a relaxed and non-judgemental environment. I personally find that Judith's engaging personality and warm friendly approach enables me to talk through painful issues and challenge my inner beliefs, knowing that she will be honest with me and help me to focus on the areas that I need to work through and resolve. The assurance of knowing that Judith is 100% behind me has given me the ability to dare to dream again.Gail Pearson
Judith’s input over the last year or so has been invaluable to me, many of the things she has helped me see I've always known, but I just needed the permission to think and act on them. She has this empathy to know where you are at and the skills to know how to nudge you in the right direction. She has an honest, reliable and friendly approach and my coaching sessions with Judith were always encouraging and inspirational. Judith has been an invaluable input into my personal and business issues and I’ve already recommended her to others and seen the benefit in their lives too.Sarah F
I first became aware of Dare To Fly about two years ago when I had left the corporate world and joined the local business scene. Every networking event that I attended or spoke at always had business owners, who would talk about Judith and her coaching, her positive mentality and her straight talking ways, It was quite a while before I met the lady in the flesh, when I did it felt like meeting up with an old friend - within minutes I could feel myself unloading work issues onto her shoulders and in response Judith automatically unpicking them, she has an amazing ability to get me to answer the question I ask - thus giving me the confidence I need to trust my own instincts. It was a short while later that I came to a crossroads in my work and Judith was there for me, late on a Sunday evening (it was an emergency Skype), she gave me as much time as needed, without letting me talk for so long that I would end up going round in circles. She is a no nonsense kind of lady which I found helped immensely and her wisdom and techniques made me determined by the end of the Skype to trust my abilities. Since that day I haven't looked back, my confidence has been re-established and I have grown in leaps and bounds - so much so that now I don't wonder if I can or should do something, I do it and I go straight for the top. Thanks Dare To Fly, you helped me when I was at a crossroads, I couldn't have done it without you.Charlotte Ball, Director, The Little Business Consultant
I visited Dare To Fly in Norwich and had the pleasure of meeting Judith Flowerday, a life and business coach. I went there initially feeling low, lacking confidence etc. But since my appointment with Judith I have improved in my home and work life. I would recommend this service to anyone who is finding life and/or work a struggle. Judith is an amazingly positive, caring, inspirational person who has obviously worked hard to get where she is now in her life. I would like this opportunity to thank her for helping me.Kim
I liked Judith straight away, the initial phone call and then in person; she was warm, approachable and very straightforward. When we meet she creates an environment that allows me to feel comfortable to express myself honestly. She is responsive, recognising where I am at and allowing me to drive forward in a way that feels right for me, but don’t expect her to let you off the hook. She asks the difficult and often harder questions. I have worked through small, but incredibly thought-provoking exercises and used different techniques she has given to me. These have all helped clarify my thinking, my priorities and a way forward. Some eye-opening and truly honest moments! Judith has helped me take life-changing steps that I’ve been procrastinating over for years! I’m so glad someone recommended her to me.Jayne Frost
Ms Judith Flowerday acts as my personal coach for both business and personal affairs. I can vouch for her discretion, her ability to plan strategy and tactics, her warm personality, and her ability to recap our meetings and my stated goals as well as to help me remain accountable. I recommend her highly.Christine Lee
Judith is the most open-minded, comforting and reassuring human being I know. I had regular sessions with Judith and her knowledge, warmth and support - and generosity of it - has supported me greatly. I often recommend Dare To Fly to a lot of colleagues/friends. Judith first of all is a friendly warm person, then a life coach/advisor all wrapped in one.Joseph B
If you ever find yourself in a situation you don’t know how to handle, or are not sure what way to turn, or even just need pointing in the right direction with a plan - then you should get in contact with Judith at Dare To Fly. Judith is the most honest, personable coach you will come across, she works from the heart and genuinely cares about the people she is working with.Claire B
Having been set a challenging business objective for 2012, which required me to perform outside of my comfort zone, and not knowing quite how to step up to the challenge, Judith not only assisted me in the setting clear and achievable ‘baby-step’ targets but also provided mechanisms to enable me to move forward with confidence. 2012 is now shaping up to be my best year in business! Thank you, Judith.John Wallis
Judith has changed my life. Where I initially went to address my assertive abilities on a personal level, my session soon developed into work that involved my business and professional life as well. Before I started seeing Judith I was lost. I had my goals but I simply didn't know how to fully achieve them, or even begin to reach for them. She has helped me with both my personal and business life, giving me confidence and faith in everything I do. She sets realistic goals and applies specific techniques in which to aid your development. In short, she has unlocked my potential and helped me in realising my future. I would recommend her to anyone needing professional support within either personal or business lives. I can't express enough how my time with Judith has clarified my ambitions and enthused my creativity again... thank you Judith for showing me the way.Sam Reece
Coaching with Judith has had such a positive impact on my life. I feel I have moved forward rather than going round in circles and have actioned items that I have been putting off for years. Judith has a very natural approach to coaching, listens and picks up on what is really being said - thanks Judith.Caroline Marshall
I was quite sceptical about coaching before I met Judith. I didn't think it really related to me. But after a session of identifying what was important to me in my life I discovered why some things weren't working and making me happy. I have been, and am continuing, to go through a difficult time personally but Judith is helping me to find something constructive out of all the mess and discover that I am doing ok and everything will eventually be fine. It has all been made so much easier by how lovely Judith is and very easy to talk to. Her guidance is always very common sense and based on life experience so you can feel confident about putting changes into place and at the very least giving it a try. A year on...it wasn't as scary or as difficult as I imagined it might be to talk over all my problems and I also got reassurance that I wasn't completely mad. I have realised that not everything bad that happened was my fault. I learned that I couldn't control everything and that other people made decisions by themselves not based on sound reasoning and there was nothing I could do about it. I was able to let go of lots of old baggage as that would hold me back from moving forward and moving forward was very important from the place where I was. It was ok to feel bad and to allow myself that luxury as all the feelings were normal, but to put a time limit on it so I could concentrate on more productive things. I stopped beating myself up about any of my emotions and I learned that no matter how bad you think it is, it can get better!
I highly recommend a few sessions with Judith for anyone who feels a bit lacklustre about themselves or their life. Judith made me realise that getting back on track does not have to be complicated or scary. As far as the peaks and pitfalls of being human go, she is a wonderful guide and, more so than anything, I always feel like we are in it together. I am now proud of myself and my life and on the foundations of this calm confidence I can build with enthusiasm and joy for life. I feel that everyone could gain something by seeing Judith.P Lewis
During our consultation Judith's relaxed and friendly manner enabled me to open up about various issues in my life. She is very easy to talk to and highly perceptive, which helped me to address aspects of my life and attitude. All in all it was a very thought provoking and useful session. I would highly recommend her to others.G Scotting
The limiting beliefs I held in the past no longer control me and I feel capable and able to achieve all of my hopes and dreams. This I believe is due to the fantastic support, encouragement and potential that Judith was able to see in me and this is what makes her a great coach. If you are serious about wanting to improved the quality of your life then what are you waiting for?Lewis Tuttle
I went to my first coaching session with Judith wondering what on earth I was doing there! I was very sceptical that it would be of any real benefit to me. What an eye-opener! From my first session with Judith I was able to identify the issues that were causing me stress and worry and start to address them. Gradually, with Judith's help and support, and her wonderful insight into people, I began to turn the situation around. Judith helped me identify my fundamental values both in my private life and also my business and guided me towards achieving and maintaining these. Judith is so friendly and easy to talk to, never pushy, allowing you to reach the goals that you want at your own pace. I would recommend her in a heartbeat and know that if I ever reach bumpy ground again I can return to her where I am certain she will gently and patiently guide me back on course.Teresa A
I am so glad that I had the chance to work with Judith. She helped me so much by understanding my situation and believing in me which enabled me to see through the clouds and make progress by setting the right goals that I could manage comfortably and at my own pace. It was lovely to know that Judith was always there for me, right by my side giving me support. Without Judith's patience and collaborative way of working, I would not have the confidence that I have now and I thank you Judith for helping me to move on in my life in such a positive way.LC
I was fortunate to have a session with Judith through Shaw Trust. I found Judith to be patient and the discussion thought provoking. I particularly enjoyed the Core Values activity and have used this when assessing whether or not to apply for employment. For the first time ever I am matching my values to the employment I seek and know that this will support my well-being and enjoyment of the role I finally embark upon.Rosie Smith
I first came to work with Judith Flowerday from Dare to Fly in July 2012 when I asked to be referred to her through the Shaw Trust. I was looking for a way to move forward with my life and career. I wanted to work on building confidence and to look at issues that I felt were impeding my progress in achieving my goals. I found Judith to have a positive, friendly, compassionate and understanding approach to coaching. Judith created a relaxing atmosphere for the sessions, and I found it easy to talk to Judith even when dealing with difficult or sensitive issues. Judith works to help you in a proactive manner to work out your real goals and address any issues. The sessions give you a new perspective, and a useful step by step programme of achievable targets to be able to move forward constructively in your own time. I have found the coaching sessions of a great benefit to me and I would highly recommend Dare to Fly to anyone who is looking for a refreshing and positive approach to Life or Career Coaching.CS
Judith has been my personal coach and business mentor for the last 7 months, during which time she has given me the encouragement and motivation to make some great improvements in both my personal life and my own coaching skills. She has been talented in providing me with an objective perspective, and has challenged me to push myself, overcome my boundaries and reach my goals.Through my coaching with Judith, I have accomplished a higher level of organisation within my personal life and business planning, developed a better understanding of my barriers, challenged my own beliefs and achieved far more than I would have without her support and skill.Judith will remain my mentor for the foreseeable future, and I know that her skills will continue to elicit the information which I need to reach my future goals.A Dack
Judith helped me to find the right career path very quickly and effectively. This was a problem I had been battling with for some time, but her methods, empathy and intuitive approach have set me on a very exciting course career wise! Judith is genuinely interested in making the coaching work and brings a lot of energy to the sessions. I completely recommend her as a coach. Thank you Judith!Elizabeth Stone
I have only seen Judith for one session, but during that hour she managed to break down a huge number of issues and identify what was really important to me - right now. Thanks to Judith I have stopped burying my head in the sand and now deal with one thing at a time. As a result I have achieved the first goal I set out for myself and will be returning for another session soon to set myself more goals and hopefully receive more of Judith's wonderful words of wisdom.S.H.
Having life coaching helped me to change the way I was thinking. By working with Judith I was able to look at parts of my life in a completely different way. By doing this I was able to think more positively about myself and with guidance from Judith I was able to set and achieve goals I previously thought were impossible. My time with Judith has been life changing.A. Revell.
Life coaching has given me the ability to focus and clearly determine my priorities and then deal with them in a realistic and methodical way. As a busy full time worker and single mother I needed to stop juggling and waiting for the next crisis to fall into my lap. I needed to take control of my life and live it, not just exist. Judith has enabled me to grab the bull by the horns and face up to reality and therefore reconnect with me. Not the mummy, daughter or manager, me, just me...and I like me!C. Thompson.
I would like to thank Judith for helping me to regain my confidence and making me realise that I am the person I am and that I should appreciate myself and realise all that I have achieved in my life.I sought Judith’s help at a time when I was at the bottom in my professional life and my personal relationship was not far behind. Judith helped me to realise that the problems I was encountering at work were not because of me but because of the situation I was in. My self-esteem was rock bottom and I could not really go any lower. Judith helped me to build my confidence step-by-step, gradually build my relationships again with my colleagues and become stronger in my personal relationship. This has not happened overnight but has taken nearly ten months of constantly being appreciated by Judith and encouraging me to view things in a different manner when dealing with other members of my staff.Instead of the stress of the situation spilling out into frustration with the staff she made me realise that I was the person who could make things right for everyone involved in the process we were going through at that time. I now have a partner who does appreciate me and does show it now, which was something that did not happen very often previously, and a really good team of staff who I can now approach in a different manner and achieve some good results for the good of the company and the staff. I have come a long way and I hope to continue to grow into the person I am and continue to appreciate myself. Thank you Judith, I could not have done it without you!Sue G
Judith's coaching has given me the confidence I needed to turn my dreams into plans and put the much needed legs on my ideas. As well as being a lovely lady, Judith knows how to draw the best out of you and never, ever passes judgement on what you say. I would recommend her to anyone for business and life coaching. Since meeting with Judith, I have dared to fly!S.W.
I have been through a lot of ups and downs in my life and I decided it was time to find someone who could help me move forward in the right direction. I searched on the internet for a life coach and at first it was the name 'Dare to Fly' that caught my attention. When I first met Judith I had lost my path in life and lost my confidence in myself.Judith has helped me to restore my faith in myself and made me see the light in the dark. Sometimes we all need a bit of help to find our path in this life and Judith is the person I would recommend when looking for a life coach as she is very honest and supportive.Emily Lawrence
I feel a lot more positive within myself. It was a very interesting workshop and my mind was occupied. It was a lot of help.Mr. E. Holt
Judith is really friendly and I felt like I could really open up to her. She has helped me boost my confidence. I would really recommend her to anyone who wants to see a life coach.Becky Heard
When Shaw Trust suggested seeing Judith I was a bit cynical. There seemed little point in discussing what I wanted from a career when I wasn't coping with my chronic ill health. Judith provided the space to re-evaluate my values, and looked at smaller, realistic goals as stepping stones towards where I wanted to be, rather than wasting energy on frustration at what seemed impossibly far off. Talking things through with someone who was not emotionally connected to me, or affected by my struggles really helped. Life coaching restored my confidence, and enabled me to make peace with who I am now, rather than continue to mourn who I once was.Amanda Chapman
My coaching sessions with Judith have been very beneficial because they gave me a lifeline to look at where I was and where I wanted to be. Although I was initially very scared about setting goals they were tailored to suit my individual needs and at a pace I could cope with. I began to realise that with 'baby steps' things I wanted were possible. My confidence increased by achieving new things as well as having the benefit of having someone support you through the process. During my meetings with her I realised that even with my health difficulties I could make good progress at a pace that I could cope with. I would recommend life coaching. Give it a go - after all, what have you got to lose?!Julie Porter
Before going to Judith I was going through phases of being very depressed for weeks at a time. I had been cheated on multiple times by my previous girlfriend and, as a result, was finding it hard to trust anyone. I also had a lot of issues with my self confidence; blaming the way I looked for being one of the reasons I had been cheated on. After just a short time with Judith I am back to my old, happy, confident self! She helped me see things from perspectives that I might not have seen before and much more. One of the main reasons I started to see Judith was because I had just entered a new relationship, and the betrayal I had felt in the past relationship was affecting my current one. Thanks to Judith I am over these issues now and can focus on having a happy and healthy relationship whilst feeling confident and happy with myself too. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone.Lee Manning
Despite the fact that I only met Judith on 2 occasions, I found her very approachable and easy to get on with. She was very accepting and affirming and I found it extremely helpful that she shared a little of her own life experience. I liked Judith's method of working and the very quick and efficient way that she sent feedback to me. I felt that she was very perceptive and made an accurate judgement of me.Since having my session where Judith helped me identify my career core values, I have felt empowered to be the person I have always wanted to be. Judith's affirmation/validation of my core values has set me free to move on and feel more comfortable being the real me. I have to say that the fact that 'integrity' was my number 1 core value was quickly tested! I am very glad to say that I passed the test!Lynn Glover
During the coaching session with Judith it gave me a chance to think outside the box and really consider all of my options. Therefore, when all of these options were listed and a timescale placed on each one, this helped me focus and made sure I carried everything out rather than becoming complacent. Through having a structure to my process of looking for a job I have managed to make a lot of contacts which I am extremely pleased about. Thanks for helping me Judith.Emma Green
What I did appreciate from my coaching with Judith was the opportunity to take time out in an open and confidential setting to discuss issues personal to me and constructively take steps to deal with them. This was aided in no uncertain terms by someone who was honest, supportive and at times, downright firm - just what I needed! And finally, let's not forget that each session was always 'topped and tailed' by a healthy dose of laughter - definitely the best medicine!J.P.
Spending an hour with life coach Judith Flowerday is better than any tonic. It is like sharing a glass of fine champagne. There is lots of sparkle and fizz and when the cork goes pop you know you have had a life affirming, aha moment, thanks to Judith’s visionary skills.Having undertaken a course of sessions with Judith, I can’t vouch highly enough for Judith’s indomitable, life coaching skills. From her easy manner and wicked sense of humour to her in depth knowledge of what makes us all tick and her subtle techniques for stimulating the psyche, you know you have picked a winner.Judith exudes warmth, understanding and kindness making her clients instantly feel at ease. She has an aura of positivity that brushes off on all around her. Her strength is in her ability to open a client’s eyes to their innermost thoughts and feelings and transform those into a list of objectives and goals for living a happier and more fulfilled life.As a client, you never doubt for one minute that she is not on your side and holding close to her, some of your most personal and treasured thoughts. Long may she continue to work in the vocation that so clearly suits her and enables her to sprinkle her special, magic dust. Go on, Dare To Fly and uncork a bottle today!Sheree Hanna
We invited Judith to work with our field sales staff with a view to improving their sales results. Judith provided interactive group coaching that encouraged all to explore the benefits of improving rapport building skills, which would in turn produce a greater ratio of conversions. Staff were able to identify any weaknesses that they may have in this area and were able to develop individual plans to deal effectively and proactively with any lack of confidence and results related negativity.Additionally, they learned valuable tools to support their interpersonal skills moving forward. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Judith for business coaching and will be continuing to use Dare To Fly in the future.Jamie Challenger
Judith is a genuine, very positive person and an exceptional coach. She has helped me to find clarity and confidence through a very challenging time. Having reached an unhappy stage with my work I was eager to make a change. Judith helped me to realize what I really want and what I don’t want, and gave me a confidence to move forward. Most importantly, she inspired me to become a life coach myself! Thank you!Magda Opanowicz
I saw Judith last year for a period of 6 months. I was 24 and had really hit a low point in my life. I was in a bad relationship and felt very insecure. Before Judith I had tried 2 therapists both were ok but for me it wasn't helping in the way I was hoping.Judith came to my house which was great for me. She’s the complete opposite to a therapist, I found therapy very negative and was mainly focusing on the past which I did need but after so long I decided to try life coaching. I needed help in how to move forward and to change my life in a positive way. Judith has many different techniques and stories to help anyone in any situation.Judith as a person is very funny, completely non judgmental and very easy to get on with. I'd recommend Judith to anyone that's feeling low or needing a shoulder to cry on. She really was a great help to me and nearly a year on I still use the same techniques she gave me.Clare R
Having been through a difficult divorce I was encouraged to entertain counselling. This I did and with two different counsellors. Whilst to a degree it was slightly helpful, it did not provide me with the answers I was seeking, or identify what it was that I needed to tackle and fulfil. A solicitor friend from the West Country, having also been through a difficult divorce, kept badgering me to visit a life coach since he had seen one local to him and they had helped him identify his real wishes and goals in life, suggesting ways they could be achieved.About a year or so later I searched for a life coach on the Internet and I found Judith by luck, primarily due to her location. I turned up for the first session not really knowing what to expect but Judith's charm and personality made it so relaxing. I felt as though I talked a great deal in the first session and it probably took two or three sessions before we worked out my main areas that needed to be improved, to help me reach my goals in life.I am still fairly early in the process but now learning to concentrate on the areas that I feel will help me and not to dwell on those that will not aided by the written summary and action plan that is sent after the session, providing a working document upon which to refer.From my experience, counselling and life coaching are a 'one on one' programme where you need to respect your coach, trust them and have an excellent rapport. I found all those attributes with Judith and having built the trust, found any subject could be discussed in detail, without her passing judgement. She is a lady with 'life' experience herself and it is probably this and her personality that have made my sessions both beneficial and enjoyable.N.W.
Judith has an excellent ability to listen closely and ask well placed questions that support you in moving forward. I have had two business coaching sessions where I have examined business opportunities with Judith. Sharing that process with someone you trust enables you to explore your concerns and clarify your thinking. On both occasions I have taken something valuable away that has accelerated my progression.S.G.
Judith is the most open-minded, comforting and reassuring human being I know. I had regular sessions with Judith and her knowledge, warmth and support - and generosity of it - has supported me greatly. I often recommend Dare to Fly to a lot of colleagues/friends. Judith first of all is a friendly warm person, then a life coach/advisor all wrapped in one.Judith has always demonstrated a knowledgeable and valuable approach to supporting me with my new business. By setting and identifying manageable goals and targets within our one-to-one sessions, using set agendas and task lists has helped keep me focused through an important time for setting up my business and its development.I have considered my groundings, my inspiration for and most importantly my vision for developing Headless Entertainment. The sessions and tasks set with Judith have proved invaluable for establishing and getting comfortable with the vision for my business which has in turn, allowed me to forge new relationships and initiatives upheld by a robust plan.My experience with Dare to Fly has given me the opportunity and the confidence to progress with my business, knowing that I’m on the right track for my personal journey. I have now officially set up my new business with a keen and admired advocate and I look forward to new adventures with Headless Entertainment.Joseph Ballard
On first meeting Judith I felt at ease straight away. She listened to my concerns of writing a business plan as I struggled with putting pen to paper. I spent 2 hours on the phone with Judith and she went through my business plan thoroughly with me and in great depth where needed. I very much appreciate the fantastic service she gave me and would highly recommend her in the future.H.Ellis
When I first went to see Judith I felt lost, I did not know what I wanted in my life or how to get the things I did want, I couldn't prioritise what was important to me and so felt torn, confused and unfulfilled. The life coaching sessions I have had with Judith have turned my life around; she has given me the confidence to reach for opportunities I never thought were possible and enabled me to live my life to the fullest.I thought she was a lovely lady, who could make a clear concise judgement of who you are and what is important to you. She is honest, supportive and to the point when needed! I will be ever grateful to her and would strongly recommend her to anyone who wants to start living!VB
Great advice and support just when I need it! Judith puts me back on the right track when I start to wonder.Martyn O.
Dare to Fly made me feel relaxed and ready to meet the world head on. I found the relaxation and meditation great tools and I feel that many other people could find themselves if they went to see Judith.Caroline E.
I made contact with Judith following discussions with my boss on how I could further my role as manager within our organisation. I struggled on occasions with confidence, self belief and assertiveness issues. I was also battling with authority issues from certain members of staff so we set to work. We worked through a number of personal and work related issues using different techniques on the right way of asking for information from someone and the tools needed to get the desired outcome from difficult situations. By using a tool called “anchoring” I learnt how to stay calm in stressful situations without worrying that I was going to blush or get my words muddled.Within the first couple of sessions I started to get my head around the fact that I was a GREAT manager and that I had been dealing efficiently with all tasks asked of me in the correct manner and I did in fact know what I was talking about. I was also able to offload my niggling worries like the office not being tidy and the staff kitchen always being my responsibility to clean up – Judith made me realise that not everyone thinks about things the way that I do and that just because it wasn't up to my standards it didn't make it wrong – I now clean the kitchen because I want it to look good not because I need to clear up after everyone else – this one small issue has made me re-address a number of other personal issues that I often battle with on a regular basis.In total I met with Judith for 5 sessions and in that short space of time I am more confident, I believe in myself, am more authoritative with members of staff and I am in full control of all of my decisions and actions. My boss and colleagues have seen and noted a change in my mannerisms for the better which is having a huge impact on the business, staff morale and staff relations.Miss B.
OK, OK I admit it, I was wrong. In my defence, when my work colleague suggested a chat with his "life coach friend" when I asked if he had any ideas on how to keep my nerves under control for my motorbike test I could not stop images of BARRY from WATFORD (BBC R2) springing to mind. "Don't worry" he said, "She's not a shrink, she tells me off if I call her that. I'll get her to give you a call. " Oh, OK" I said, not over enthusiastically and thinking what have I let myself in for. By gum am I pleased she did call me. I told her about the bike test I had already failed due to my uncontrollable nerves and how like jelly my legs feel on the day, being physically sick and my heart pounding and generally wanting to run in the opposite direction. Well, we had a good chat and she pin points some of my problems and helps me by explaining ways to divert my thoughts and how to retrain the brain and other helpful tips to keep me calm and positive on the day.Well, I can't keep the big grin off my face since I PASSED my TEST...and I passed it with ease and I was not sick on the day either. Yes, my legs had a little wobble to them, but not total jelly. So thank you Judith for all your help and support. Sorry I thought you were a Barry from Watford but we all get things wrong sometimes and I fully admit that I was.Jane Bennett
Since the age of 13 I suffered with depression, and I can't remember a time when I didn't feel low; I got into the habit of self-harming and I damaged important relationships with family and friends due to the way I was feeling, and how I acted because of this. My self-confidence was one of my main issues, and I found it difficult to even look in a mirror without feeling repulsed by what I saw.This self-loathing came from being rejected by my aggressive, alcoholic step father, being bullied at school, and then a friend sexually assaulting me at the age of 16. I believed that everything was my fault, and my confidence was non-existent. A friend recommended Judith to me, and after seeing numerous counsellors before I was sceptical, but I thought I’d give it a go. It was difficult to talk about the way I felt about myself, however Judith was incredibly supportive, and I found after a few sessions her positive outlook was starting to take effect. She taught me to think differently, and showed me how to get rid of my negativity. I would recommend Judith to anyone. I never thought I would feel happy, but after seeing her I do. She has absolutely changed my life, and I can't thank her enough.Amy Vincent
Following my coaching session I got all my stuff sorted, which I'm relieved about. My marriage is now better and more solid than ever. I took a full-time job in London, so I live away from home during the week, which sounds like a recipe for disaster but actually works out great. We no longer worry or argue about money and the time we spend together is quality.Thank you for your help and advice and in the short time we met I found it very useful. I'm now much happier and content with just being 'me'.ER
After seeing Judith a few times, I am no longer trapped by negative self-beliefs. I am much more aware of other people, less 'down' on myself and less inhibited by unnecessary worry about social gaffes in situations where I know few if anyone present. Life coaching is odd - after all you expect being alive to be easy, but if you've had your confidence savaged and are retreating into yourself, it may do the power of good.Six months on...I've got the various monkeys off my shoulder in terms of being concerned about social faux pas in gatherings of relatively large groups, most of whom I would be able to join in the conversation, rather than just largely assuming that would be impolite, as the safest assumption. For obvious reasons I am unlikely to go round thinking no women are ever likely to find me attractive, since clearly at least one does and has managed to maintain that opinion through several dates and for a couple of months, and yes, it is enjoyable - we're definitely on the same wavelength I think. That's something of a weight off my shoulders.Mr. S
When we first went to Judith we went to learn how to communicate effectively, how to share our lives and become equal as a couple. What she did was teach us how to grow as individuals and in this, become better and stronger in our relationship. A few years ago I would have questioned a future together but now we are busy planning our next great venture. Without Judith's support and time this may have not been possible. Thank you for everything Judith!Vicki
Judith has the ability to guide you in the right direction, telling you how it is and showing you that your worries really are nothing to be worried about. She has also helped me cope with extra pressure in my job and shown me ways to handle stressful situations.I have always been the type of person to worry about what people think of me – well more to the point worry about what I think people think of me, I have also taken on more at work and at some points found it hard to cope with all the new jobs – Judith has helped me so much to first of all build my confidence and make me realise that if I go into something with negative thoughts the only outcome will be negative. Judith has also given me some great points and techniques to help me deal with stressful situations. Judith has defiantly made me feel better within myself which has helped with my personal and professional development.JB
I first came to use the guided meditation/self-hypnosis CDs after a coaching session with Judith. I was looking for a new way to help me relax, and also to boost confidence, so decided to purchase them and give them a go.I found the CDs were easy to use as 20 minutes fit easily into my schedule. The content was very pleasant and relaxing. I found after several uses, that these CDs were having a positive effect on my mentality and I naturally found myself to be more positive, less stressed and more relaxed.I would highly recommend the 'Be Confident' and 'Be Calm and Happy' CDs to anyone who is looking to try something new and refreshing in regards to relaxation tools.CS
I've recently started to revisit my CDs after a breakup in a relationship and quite quickly I've seen an improvement in my ability to relax and sleep a little better.M
I purchased 'Be Calm and Happy". It really helped. I couldn't sleep because of tension in my neck and I dropped off and the CD was still running, so it definitely helped me.K
I decided to contact Judith even though I was not really convinced about personal coaching. Today I can say that it was one of the best decisions I have made. Two sessions with her were enough to understand how unhealthy my relationships were over last ten years and how easy it is to change it. Now, when I talk to my friends, I say that I am new born. Judith is a very professional and understanding person. She is never judging but always asking questions. On the top of all of that, spending time with her is simply fun. I would definitely come back to her if I would need help in the future and I would recommend her to my friends.ja
I am recovering from a serious illness which totally knocked my confidence and left me unable to work for the past 2 years. Judith’s wonderful words of wisdom are helping me put my life back together again.Sally C
Hi Judith. Just to say thank-you for your help in getting my life on track I often look back at my visioning statement and I am on track, finally finished my Masters, start a job with a fab children's charity soon and got married this year. Thanks again for your help, good luck with future plans, take care.Miss W
Thank you for your life coaching skills to help me with my speech in London. It went really well, my husband said I was brilliant and even though he is biased I am happy to accept the compliment. I will continue with the positive affirmations and am still using the relaxation guide. Thank you again.Denise
Hi Judith I just wanted to let you know I start work tomorrow!!!! I know I couldn't have got this far without your help, so thank you Judith!Linda B
I've been taking stock today and looking at old emails etc. I want to say how glad I am that I came to see you and how you were the catalyst for change. Everything I asked for has become a reality, it is quite remarkable. One of the best things to have happened is a change in my attitude, whereas before I might suffer a bit of anger if I felt wronged in some way, now its a passing inconvenience and that is all! I really can shrug my shoulders and move on! I do not need to come and see you at the moment but I will not hesitate to ring you or recommend you to everyone I meet who needs a bit of direction. I wish you all the happiness and success in the world.Susanne
I was introduced to Jude about 4 years ago after my husband carried out some TV installation work in her home. He told me what she did for a living and I promptly made a coaching appointment with her. I am 46 years old and have suffered with various mental health issues all my life such as depression, anxiety, self harm, alcohol misuse, low self esteem and insecurities to name some. Over the years I have seen dozens of counsellors, therapists, psychiatrists and psychologists, who have helped me somewhat for short periods of time, but Jude is by far and away the best professional I have ever seen, and her techniques are long lasting and suggested for me as an individual rather than it feeling like they come straight from a textbook! Jude is warm, intuitive, calming and exceptionally good at what she does. She instantly builds a rapport and makes you feel very comfortable talking to her. I know that I can discuss anything I want without feeling embarrassed, ashamed or judged. When I am having difficulties she is my first port of call as I know I will get the help I need. I am so grateful that I have Jude to help me cope with life and manage my various problems and am certain I will carry on seeing her for as long as she is doing what she does!Pip Thompson
