I would be happy to recommend Daxa as an executive coach. She blends extensive experience as a senior lawyer in the medical negligence field with a very human and empathetic understanding of grief and loss. She is a keen listener, allowing you to find your own solutions as needed but also coming up with some very good lateral ideas, if you require them. I personally have found her sessions immensely useful.

Daxa’s coaching skills are just like her skill as a lawyer – sharp, incisive insights coupled with genuine interest in helping you get to where you want to be. Daxa has helped me to develop and deepen my practice by always offering challenging yet constructive feedback and consistent and friendly support. She instinctively ‘gets it’. And its these instincts which make her such an excellent coach. I have worked with a number of coaches now, and followed the work of other big names in the field. And I would value Daxa’s coaching as highly as any – there’s no ego, her focus is genuinely on your progress. It’s good to know she’s in my corner and has got my back.
