Dagmar has been a blessing. I connected with her at a difficult, rather confusing time in my life and after just one session I knew I wanted and needed more of what she was able to offer.
I felt she really heard me, and that she worked with great care and consideration, tailor-making our sessions to best suit my needs.
This is what really stands out for me – how personalized her coaching was. I found her style to be incredibly gentle, yet powerful. She knows when to pursue a line of inquiry, and when to move on.
After every session I felt really empowered to take action, to do the homework she assigned, to recognize my limiting beliefs and patterns of thinking. Through imagery she helped me break through my resistance to the necessary process of marketing my book, and helped me to view it through new eyes. I think this process was crucial to my being able to move on. I felt empowered and clear about my next steps.Becky Livingston
Working with Dagmar has been rewarding on so many levels. It has given me a much clearer direction and strategy within my business, really helping me to get clarity on what my core message is so that I can communicate it much more clearly to my clients. It has also helped me to expand past my comfort zone, and Dagmar has challenged me in all the right ways (not without some push back on my end), to move past my blocks. On a personal level, it has helped me to counter a lot of negative self-talk and develop strategies to deal with situations that would have sent me into a downward spiral previously.
I would highly recommend working with Dagmar, especially as a small business owner to help unlock and expand your business goals.Angela McConnell

She will help you to make that elusive break through in your life.John Radford, Ph. D. Psychology
Virtually each time Dagmar and I have a session, I experience a major shift regarding my business mindset. There have been issues regarding fear of success, dealing with opposition to my business by my family, lack of focus, just to name a few challenges. I didn’t even realize that I had these issues until speaking with Dagmar but they have been holding me back from doing what I love, well. Dagmar seems to be able to cut through all of my talk to quickly take me to the underlying issues of which I was not even aware. Working as an entrepreneur for the first time in my life presents different challenges to a normal 9 to 5 job. Dagmar has helped me to bring more focus and determination to my business by working through blocks with me that impede my success. I feel very lucky to have such a person on my side in this wide world of opportunity and challenges.Kim Connolly
Dagmar is a warm and supportive coach with the ability to create a safe space for you to explore your vision, options, goals and strategies in order to identify solution focused action plans. She has helped catapult me forward onto the path to achieving long held goals. I would recommend Dagmar as a coach to anybody who wants to focus their efforts and energy into realizing their potential and achieving at a new level.Darrell Farrow
Dagmar has had such a huge impact on my life. She not only managed to guide me through identifying what is it that I actually want in my life, but most importantly she possesses a rare ability to get you to turn your own vision into reality. I love how you pushed me beyond my comfort zone. You always listened and gave me coaching based on my own model of the world and it worked perfectly. THANK YOU for giving me the courage to go back to school and fulfill my dream career. You are THE BEST!!

Dagmar expertly blends finely-tuned coaching skills and techniques with her intuition in her coaching practice. One of the biggest gifts from working with Dagmar is her presence: she shows up focused, attentive, authentic, and soothing – somehow always exactly what I need. Her approach has been so supportive and empowering while working through challenging topics. Working with Dagmar has helped me take action and see results.

I have had two consultations with Dagmar at Courage Space since doing the EQ-i test. In both of these consultations Dagmar went through my strengths as well as areas needing improvement based on the EQ-i test. Dagmar not only helped me to understand which areas in my life (such as decision making and flexibility) I needed to work on, but she gave me the necessary tools for me to use in order to achieve self-improvement. Dagmar had excellent people-skills and I felt comfortable and safe opening up to her. She was able to get to the root of the problem in a way that I don’t think I could have done on my own. In my every day life I can see that I have started to become more confident in social situations and understand my own needs better so that I can look after myself and others in effective ways. ”

Dagmar is an incredible Life Coach. With ease and grace, she gently facilitated a very necessary change in my life. She provided me with the tools to explore and find insight into my situation. I felt empowered to tackle my issue and came out the other side with clarity and a positive outlook toward my future.
I have worked with a life coach before and learned so much from the experience. It was like a big jumpstart to a new direction in my life. Two years later I realized that it was time for some growth, and I went to Dagmar for more life coaching. She is very good at pinpointing where I get stuck, and positively determined to get me to deal with whatever it is that’s making me stuck. I’m good at digging my heels in, but she’ll dig deeper, so I can’t get away with it. That’s what you need to get ‘unstuck’. If you want growth, then you need to look inside and figure out how that’s going to happen.
Dagmar can help with that and is great at encouraging you to step outside your comfort zone, and embrace change and growth. Every time I meet with Dagmar I leave feeling like I achieved something and have more confidence going forward in tackling my goals. I always look forward to my meetings with Dagmar. I think one of the best things you can do for yourself if you feel stuck is go see a life coach – Dagmar will give you that supportive but determined kick in the butt that we all need sometimes.

“My experience with the EQ test was nothing but positive. It only takes a short 10 minutes to do the test and the meeting really helps you better understand your emotional strengths and weaknesses, enhancing your ability in certain situations and decision making. Dagmar has been a pleasure to work with. ”

Dagmar has been instrumental as I’ve worked through both personal and professional decisions. Her approach to coaching is unique in that she truly listens to me, without judgement, and creates opportunities for me to dig deeper within myself to find my own answers. Never have I felt more empowered than after my sessions with Dagmar. She leverages the variety of experience and background she has in both life coaching and emotional intelligence to facilitate change within me. What I’ve appreciated most about my sessions with Dagmar is that she encourages me to see that my challenges are actually opportunities in disguise – and if I can tap into them and understand how they can actually progress me forward, I’ll get what I want while staying authentic to who I am. I would recommend Dagmar to anyone looking to take control of their future by realizing that they already have all of the answers they are looking for – they just need someone to bring them to the surface.

I heard about Emotional Intelligence Testing as being a way to determine how to best interact with others as well as how to understand yourself and your needs better. A way to basically know yourself and to make better decisions across any area of your life.
I thought it would be perfect for my daughter as she is deciding what to do with university study and to help her with some anxiety she has around that. When I suggested this to my daughter and told her that I’d get her a couple of sessions with Dagmar, she was not all that keen – “What do I need that for mom, I’m good”. I asked her to just give it a try – nothing lost and even if she got one helpful tip that would be fabulous. She did the EQ-i test then had a follow up Skype with Dagmar. At the end of the first session she said she couldn’t wait for the next session. She said Dagmar helped her get to the root of her issue about her fear of moving away from home; her nervousness about going to a University where she would not know anybody; and helped her to gain some skills in dealing with uncertainty in general and in her course choice in particular. It also gave her confidence when she realised how many areas she had strengths in and has built on them. She had 2 sessions with Dagmar and is now feeling quite confident and excited about her move. I would highly recommend Dagmar to any parent / teenager going through transitional times.
