Stephen Desborough is a Performance Coach and has been director of Performance Coach UK Ltd since 2006. It was whilst Stephen was working as a financial futures trader in the City he saw his performance and well being was being influenced by his state of mind and not as he thought by the outside world. Without realising it at the time his new career path began. It was then that he committed his new career/life to learn more about the human mind.

Stephen followed this interest, which led to him training as a hypnotherapist initially, progressing on to complete his qualification as a master practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) along with training in many other forms of Psychology along the way. In 2010 Stephen discovered the understanding of the Three Principles, (Mind, Consciousness and Thought) which is described as the foundation behind all human experience and the underpinning of all Psychology. In short, this provides the blueprint to how the human mind works.

He combines his understanding of the business world and his knowledge of the Three Principles to guide his clients toward seeing the magnificence that resides within.

Misunderstanding:

The situation causes me to feel stressed, anxious or depressed.

I am stuck with it or need to deal or cope with how I feel, and that’s exhausting.

The circumstance needs to change before I can feel better, and when it’s out of my control, I feel hopeless!

It might look like these are true, but that’s not the case; it’s a trick of the mind. Look deeper, and you’ll see how experience works moment to moment for all human beings; it is not inflicted upon us; it is a creation of the human mind and projected out into the world. Life has our back, yet at times, this isn’t easy to believe, which inspired this short session with Bec Sheffield. You have the power within to live the life you want to live, with freedom of mind, contentment, and joy. It will not always go the way you want it, but you can get insight into where to look for guidance, clarity and peace.

Eyes for Insight

As human life, you are built to withstand feelings. Sit back, get curious, heighten your awareness, notice how your experience changes and nothing else about the situation has changed. Take a breath, and listen to that inner voice guiding you through life. Know that you are always OK, and absolutely enough, life does not need to be earned; it is your birthright! You’ve got this; blindspots are temporary, the mind is designed to clear all by itself – let go!

What People Say About Working With Denise

Vicky Norman

Meeting Denise was perfect timing, written in the stars, foretold, whatever. My world was falling apart, my marriage had ended, my child was in serious trouble, and I was upping sticks and moving up North to run the biggest, most complex project of my career.
Four months later, my project is an astonishing success, my marriage is back on track, and best of all, my baby is coming back to me. I am different at work, at home, inside my head, and others can see it. The dark days aren’t dark any more because they don’t last, and the light days are far more frequent. Denise’s workj isn’t just amazing in the world of sport but any area of life.

I enjoyed speaking with Denise about the mind and performance. The conversations were very insightful and always had me challenging and questioning the status quo regarding mental performance. The critical pointer Denise gave was that our natural state is freedom of mind, clarity and potential. We don’t need to overexert the mind to find these states. Searching for them often leads us further into tension. I found this very relatable to direct experiences in life and sport.

I am so grateful to have worked with Denise, I used to float in and out of different moods and believed it was other things and situations causing them. Honestly, this understanding has changed my life.

I was fortunate enough to have a conversation with Denise when we met in America. It would be easy to accuse me of exaggeration or sensationalising by making the following statement, but I can only offer you the truth as I see it.

Denise has been instrumental in my evolving understanding of the Three Principles and how they specifically apply in high-performance sport. Her insightful and intuitive way of working has challenged and deepened my fundamental understanding of all human performance.

Charlie Harris

Before I took part in Denise’s Health and Well Being programme, I stressed in many situations; it would prevent me from taking part in different things. I now look at the situations holistically and not let thoughts prevent me from putting myself forward.

Jack Pransky

Denise Holland is one of my best “students.” She is one of the few students I have asked to teach with me, and I was and remain very impressed with her presence, her knowledge, her wisdom, her feeling and her responsiveness. I would say anyone who works with Denise is in excellent hands.

Hannah Salem

I used to struggle to remain calm and confident in stressful situations, what others think of me, what would happen if I did something wrong? We are all capable of achieving, no part of our abilities is lacking! This programme has truly changed me for the best and is perfect during my final year of University.

Mark Harris

I reached out to Denise when my world seemed to be falling apart. I had recently received a diagnosis of two different types of cancer; my son was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and had little time to live. I did not know how to process all of this, and my mental state spiralled! Within ten minutes of quiet time with Denise, I felt everything lifting from my shoulders and a feeling of calm settling in its place. Working with Denise has given me a deeper understanding and knowledge of the mind, it keeps me on a healthy path not only in general day-to-day life but as a life skill in my work environment and sport. Forever grateful to you, Denise.
