About Dorothy

Dorothy is best known as The Stress Coach

She has integrated her passion for coaching with her own personal experience of burnout to create insight-based, nurturing and effective programmes to help people realise their potential and create deeply fulfilling lives with LESS STRESS and MORE EASE.

She is a wellbeing consultant, speaker and trainer committed to increasing awareness about human psychology in business to prevent burnout, enhance resilience, motivation, and creativity, and as a result to facilitate environments where people and organisations can grow, thrive and prosper.

Dorothy’s background spans fields of psychology, public health, and human nutrition. Her special interest is in stress and psychological wellbeing.

Her motto is: ‘Happiness is the joy we feel fulfilling our potential’

Having decided to become a qualified coach, she studied Co-active Coach Training with the Coaches Training Institute, the most rigorous certification programme in the coaching industry.

Most people go through a time in their life when challenges come from all sides. During those times is is often difficult to trust that these transitions are opportunities for tremendous growth and deeper fulfilment…

She has worked with some of the top names in personal development such as: Stephen Gilligan, Robert Holden, John Grinder, Byron Katie, Jack Pransky, Dicken Bettinger, Jo Bailey, Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield and many more.

Dorothy has proven experience in the field of organisational wellbeing in the private, voluntary and public sector. She has sound knowledge of national and local policy in areas of workplace health and wellbeing and mental health promotion. Having trained with Jessica Pryce-Jones, the founder of ‘IOpener’ Institute, Dorothy is a licensed practitioner of the ‘Science of Happiness at Work’.

She is currently an expert verifier for the prestigious London Healthy Workplace Charter Award Scheme, endorsed by the Mayor of London and Public Health England.

She offers expertise in executive coaching, and facilitation, design and delivery of training programmes, keynote speaking and strategy development.

For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by people — specifically, why some people always seem happier and more fulfilled than others. Form an early age, I was intrigued to know what their secret was.
