All you need to know to live a happy, resilient & fulfilling life!

Do you get annoyed when people suggest to you just to let things go, turn the other cheek, or chill out, it’ll be alright?

If the answer is yes, or you know someone who is struggling to live their best life during these uncertain times, then this conversation is for you?

The Inspired Living Series is a selection of video conversations with world-class speakers in the field of ‘understanding human consciousness’ and specialising in ‘state of mind’, designed to answer the questions that rarely get asked about our human experiences and endeavours.

One of my curiosities, for many years, is why it is some people get to live more joyful lives than others? When I look at circumstances for the answers, that doesn’t give me much. Many people live in extremely deprived areas of the world, who are incredibly happy, content and loving, so the notion that happiness and joy come from what we have, or where we live tends not to stand up to too much scrutiny. Then, I see people, who on the face of it have everything; wealth, career and strong family support are haunted by stress and anxiety, which forces them into unsavoury and unhelpful behaviours.

So, if peace of mind, clarity and joy do not come from what we have, who we share our lives with, or what’s on offer to make a living, where do we find it?

Join me, Denise Holland and my special guests Amanda O’Shea and Stephen Desborough, key influencers helping people to live well despite challenging circumstances. We’ll be LIVE on Facebook: Thursday 1st October 2020, 7 pm BST, 11 am PDT, 2pn EST.

Amanda O’Shea – The Loving-Life Coach from The Serendipity Experience. With over 25 years of experience in the provision of holistic healthcare, Amanda feels a dedication to mental health coaching. She speaks at international conferences, worldwide webinars and podcasts, and creates retreats across Europe. Amanda has worked exclusively in the world of addiction and recovery for the past few years. She has a passion for bringing her experience from this role, for sharing in the form of prevention, to young people, parents and teachers. In 2019 Amanda joined the “iheart” team as a facilitator as they launched in Spain and feels inspired to help solve the mental health crisis.

Her infectious passion for life and the ability to see the innate resilience in people is reflected in her unique ability to listen and connect deeply. Her smiley disposition and loving manner bring much positivity to this conversation.

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.

Living Well Despite a Changing and Uncertain World –

What People Say About Working With Denise

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.

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.

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

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 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.

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 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.

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.
