The Route to Enhanced Performance in Life and Work

Thrive Rather Than Survive These Changing Times

A transformative coaching program to help you

take power back over your mind

Desperate for your life to change but don’t know how to make it happen?

Whatever your inspirations; get over the loss of a loved one, manage financial uncertainty, resolve a conflict, get that promotion or fulfil a lifelong ambition; it involves the human mind, which at times can be tricky!

As a former national athlete and coach, I have seen the power of the human mind to either smash a result out of the park or fail miserably at the first hurdle. Intense emotions steal your clarity, ruin your enjoyment, and sabotage your results, and it doesn’t have to be that way!

Optimal functioning in every part of your life begins with understanding how human beings operate; the system governs every aspect of your perception, decisions, and behaviours.

When you feel down, you don’t do very well; your energy drops, your mood gets low, and your aches and pains more apparent. You can’t change out there or the past, but you can learn about your internal landscape, how to free your psychology and live with a beautiful sense of presence and joy.

As you embrace our changing world, don’t let lack of direction or motivation get in the way of you leading your best life – I can help you!

How I help you?

As a National Coach, I realised the ultimate jewel of human performance is not to give advice based on my knowledge and experience but to unlock your unique potential and genius inside. I will help you to:

  • Learn to manage your mind, emotions, energy and body in a way that serves you and those you love.
  • Heighten your self-awareness that you catch yourself before causing suffering that you might later regret.
  • Understand your tendencies for reactions in specific situations, break the cycle of limiting habitual behaviours.
  • Know that it is OK to feel anxiety, without meaning it has no power to stop you from stepping up!
  • Realise the power of being present to each moment, free of memories and future projections.

Which of these following perspectives do you most resonate and how often is your mind pre-occupied, stealing your clarity and joy?

  • Stop, don’t ruminate about something that hasn’t happened yet.

  • Someone has wronged you, and it feels impossible to move on.

  • Grief and loss are painful feelings, which steal your energy.

  • When things don’t happen the way, you want it!

  • You convince yourself you are right, yet others don’t agree with you!

  • You feel alone not having a significant other to share your path.

  • Your relationship is in tatters, but you think it isn’t your fault.

  • Your mood swings are intense, fuelled by regrets and feeling undeserving.

  • You’re concerned about your daily function and reliance on substances or other distractions.

If we can get together and help the youth see the simplicity of life, see that they have this beauty inside of them, to see they have this power within them, the youth will grow up very very wise, and this world will change and become a far far better place to live in.

What People Say About Working With Denise

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.

I appreciate the support Denise gave me when I was transitioning into my new role at Leinster and helping me understand how to ‘free my mind!

Denise has a tremendous understanding of how to achieve elite performance in sport. Her contagious enthusiasm is motivating and inspires you to the next level

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.

Denise’s new approach is great for teamwork, we don’t get upset with each other anywhere near as much, and get over disappointments quickly.

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.

Richard Pybus

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. I’ll always be appreciative of her significant role in my development as a performance director and coach.

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.

Denise has the skills and experience to wake people up to deeper knowledge about themselves. In the sporting arena, this knowledge happens to be crucially important.

Denise is impressive in her abilities by any standard. Her ability to teach and develop those around her, mark her out as someone with exceptional leadership and coaching skills. I constantly seek advice and counsel from her and trust her implicitly.

I enjoyed this course very much as it improved my shooting technique and accuracy dramatically. I learned that you do not have to be controlled by your negative thoughts because they are not you.

Grayson Hart

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 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.

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.

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.
