Confidence Building VIP Coaching and Training Programme

“Managers, Professionals and Business Owners…

Are You Frustrated by Your Lack of Confidence? 

Then this VIP ‘360 Days to Total Confidence Programme’ is for You”

 93% of people lack confidence in some area of their life, at some point in their life.

Many high achievers have told me they secretly fear that someday people are going to find out they’re not that talented.

Often confidence deserts you when you need it most – when it’s time to get out of your comfort zone and make your next leap.

“Are more confident people than you enjoying better relationships, more influence, bigger opportunities, more money and more fun?”

 Do you want to stop feeling… 

  • You’re stuck because the next step might be a mistake
  • You’re holding yourself back from more personal, career and financial success
  • Your people skills socially, in meetings and presentations let you down
  • the business world is robbing your fulfilment, individuality and freedom
  • dealing with difficult personal and work relationships is stealing your time and energy
  • you’re succeeding at work but losing in life – you have no time to have fun and your personal relationships are suffering
  • you’ve tried making changes but you fall back into old negative habits
  • you’re in an uncomfortable comfort zone
  • you’re surrounded by negative or critical people
  • you’ve lost your sense of direction and life seems to be driving you
  • You’re battling with the recession and you might lose
  • More confident people than you are enjoying better relationships ,more influence, bigger opportunities, more money and more fun 

By Now, You’re Probably Wondering What Keeps You in the

Low-Confidence Trap?

You can’t logic yourself out of a lack of confidence

Have you notice how low-confidence seems so illogical? It doesn’t matter how often you tell yourself not to worry, ‘I’ve prepared’, ‘I’ve done this before and so it will be okay’, ‘What’s the worst thing that can happen – I won’t die if it goes wrong!’ ‘They can only say, No’.

 The doubtful, exhausting, irritating voice inside your head asks, “What if it goes wrong?” “What if I make a mistake?” “What will they think of me?” “What if I haven’t prepared enough?” “What if I say the wrong thing?”

 Then when you give in to feeling nervous and stressed you don’t say what you think and you miss the opportunity to act. Afterwards you feel frustrated and stupid for feeling nervous, especially when someone else has grabbed the rewards for acting more courageously – they’ve got the partner, the promotion, the credibility, the experience, the wealth.

 You wonder, “Why can’t I do a simple thing like manage my nerves?”

 Why does that happen over and over again? Because…

 It’s difficult to feel more confident when you haven’t been shown HOW.

 You were taught how to manage your emotions by parents, teachers and others who didn’t have a clue how to do that properly. Nor did their parents and teachers…


Things which really hold us back are invisible to us.

Or rather, they leave clues that we need to learn to read before we can overcome them. For instance stress is often really a lack of confidence.

 You might be wondering whether it’s possible to change if you’ve been the same way most of your life.

 Read on to hear about my personal experience…

“So, How Can You Escape the Low-Confidence Trap?”

These days I run a successful business doing what I love, I feel confident taking on new challenges and speaking in public. I enjoy my relationships with my husband, family and friends.

 But it wasn’t always that way. There was a time in my life when I was stuck in a relationship rut and I didn’t have the courage to change it. I was in a job where my senior manager was holding me back but I didn’t challenge him. I was underpaid for what I contributed but I didn’t have the confidence to ask for more. I was shy with new people and easily intimidated by more assertive and aggressive ones. Sometimes I would hide my lack of confidence by being aloof, angry or defensive.

 Then I discovered personal development books and audio programmes. I started to do more adventurous things. I went to work abroad, learned to SCUBA dive (and teach others to dive too, in my spare time), made new friends from all over the world and met my husband.

 The only trouble was, I did all those things and still lacked confidence. I felt the fear and did those things anyway. My life had got more interesting but the anxiety was still there.

 Then I tried those intensive 3-7 day workshops where highly motivational speakers took 100s or 1000s of people on emotional roller coaster journeys of self discovery. I definitely experienced some break-throughs and had great fun. But I came down to earth with a bump once I got back to my own life and the supportive and energised atmosphere had gone.

 I wondered, ‘How can I get out of the low-confidence trap once and for all?’ 

 I’ve been on a long quest to discover the real secrets of natural confidence. I’ve easily invested more than £67K in the last 15 years to learn and experience more and more of these personal, business and professional development tools that I’ve used to help me make big changes in my life and the lives of my 893 clients.

 I’ve been thinking…

 Many clients expect coaching programmes to be 6-12 sessions long. But the clients who experience greater benefits stay longer. There’s a limit to what I can help you achieve in just 6-12 hours especially in these difficult times.

You tend to fall back into old, stressful ways of coping when there’s lots of bad news, people are feeling worried, you’re fighting fires at work and family life is very demanding.

 These days many successful coaches are reducing the time they spend on labour intensive 1-2-1 coaching and running group coaching instead. My business coach has been telling me to go that way too. But I know 1-2-1 is a better way for my clients.

 I want to offer a programme for professionals, managers and business owners, like you, who really want to stop short-changing yourself, get out of the ‘low-confidence’ trap and achieve your potential… and are willing to invest in yourself to do it.

 Then I asked myself, ‘What would be a complete package that would help you create your best years forever?’

“What Would Your Life Look, Sound and Feel Like if You Knew How to Create Your Best Years…Forever?”

 What if you could:

  • Feel comfortable in your own skin
  • Love, lead and live courageously
  • Enjoy career and business success on your own terms
  • Create the solutions others wish they’d thought of
  • Deal with difficult work and personal challenges confidently and skilfully
  • Get the financial rewards and recognition you deserve
  • Wake up feeling full of energy and vitality?

“With the Recession it has never been more important to give yourself the emotional, mental and skill advantage that this coaching programme can give you.”

 In these challenging times you need something special.

"Madeleine is an exceptional coach. Very quickly she expanded my thinking way beyond the limits I had set for myself and not only gave me practical step-by-step advice that moved me forward in my career, my business and my personal development. She also revealed to me the things I was doing in my head that were preventing me from enjoying the success I'd already achieved. In a very short time, and as a direct result of Madeleine's coaching

- My confidence soared

- I secured an interview for the job of my dreams

- I got really clear on a part-time business I wanted to build

On top of all this, the process, wisdom and expertise she brought to the coaching allowed me to make changes in myself that deepened my relationship with my girlfriend, improved my interpersonal skills with colleagues at work and most important of all, given me an ongoing realisation that this whole journey is exciting and enjoyable.”

Ben Green, Marketing Manager


'I wanted to leave my job as I felt my career was going nowhere. Madeleine helped me take back control. First we clarified what I really wanted to do. Then, we worked on strategies to build confidence, unlock my creativity and develop leadership and communication skills. Now I've got a great new job and I honestly believe I wouldn't have done it half so well without my Life Coach.'

Joan Herbert, PhD, Business Development Manager, Cambridge

 “I’ve experienced so many benefits from Madeleine’s coaching. I now have more confidence and skill to run my business in ways that help me have more fun, more profit and more time. Rather than my business driving me, I feel more in control.

Some of the many results of our coaching sessions are that I’ve:

  • Raised my prices and improved the way I market, sell and tender my services
  • Discovered more about what’s important to me and how to take my business in a direction that will give me the lifestyle I want
  • Developed ways of dealing with difficult people, work and personal situations that have stopped them being a drain on me

Time spent with Madeleine energises me for the rest of the week. The coaching sessions help me to deal with challenges more creatively and faster. So, I spend more time on what I really care about - my family, friends and clients.”

Diane Wright, Anglia Wright Advice, Health and Safety Consultancy

 “I have enjoyed working with Madeleine – she has provided focus, ideas, structure and achievable action plans to help with my business progression.
Going from corporate life to running my own business was difficult. Helping me to overcome the obstacles blocking my thought processes, meant I achieved significant progress in a relatively short period of time, rather than procrastinating and getting bogged down with trivia.
Madeleine has provided a number of great ideas to enhance my business plan, drawing on her knowledge and experience. I have also learnt some valuable tips to enhance my business tool kit through the NLP techniques she uses.
One of the most powerful lessons learnt, is how to deal with difficult people – an invaluable seminar run by Madeleine. This was thought provoking, structured and fun!
Working with Madeleine will enhance your business and give you more confidence to deal with life!”

Aegean Thomson, Business Owner and Events Coordinator, Event Wishes

 “Working with Madeleine has given me so much more than I could ever have imagined when I committed to the coaching process. She guides, mentors, encourages, motivates, teaches and inspires. She has shown me new ways to strengthen my marketing messages and come up with countless new ideas to develop my business. Looking at what I was doing through someone else’s eyes and with her creative expertise, has put a different spin and focus on where I expend my energies. I am reaping tremendous benefits. I have more clarity, focus and direction. Her ideas library knows no bounds. Madeleine imparts all this with great wisdom, coupled with humour; it’s an enjoyable process and quite addictive!”

Isobel Read, Business Owner

 “Hi Madeleine,

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for sharing your sales conversation with me - I made my first sale today at £799!    

Looking forward to our call tomorrow.”
