Welcome! I’m Damian Grainer

Coach, Counsellor, Facilitator and Author of Self-Improvement Tools

I’m a father, traveller, entrepreneur and guide who has experienced both success and failure. I have always been curious about the human condition, the nature of suffering and wellbeing, our beliefs, behaviours and motivations. This is why I have dedicated the last 20 years to helping those who feel stuck or overwhelmed to take the next steps in their professional and personal lives through coaching, counselling and group work.

I believe…

  • That you possess incredible power and wisdom
  • That you can heal and recover from almost anything
  • That you are the author of your own life
  • That your past does not need to dictate your future
  • That you can enjoy professional and vocational success whilst maintaining a balanced and loving life
  • That you can live full and satisfying lives, whatever your circumstances, when you are ready to do so

I stand for…

  • Authenticity – Being real, vulnerable, fully present and aligned with our deepest essence
  • Adventure – Living life with curiosity, openness and appreciation; accepting our challenges as great teachers
  • Focus – Attending to what matters with conscious intention and commitment
  • Service – Understanding our inherent inter-dependence, the mutual benefit of altruism and the nature of energy flow
  • Creativity – Working with and beyond logic to enhance awareness and enhance solution finding
  • Growth – Striving and learning to become the best of what we can be
  • Love – the antidote to fear and anxiety and the connective unifying principle that allows us to truly flourish

My Background

My work draws upon 20 years of practice in the fields of emotional wellbeing, change, healing, growth and leadership working at both the individual and organisational levels. I have worked in, set up and managed mental health, addiction recovery and housing services. I guide individuals and groups towards greater meaning, authenticity and purpose in their lives, supporting them to act on what they most value whilst fully utilising their resources and potential. Everyone has the ability to flourish and thrive, living unhindered by the limiting behaviours and beliefs that cause so much pain and suffering.

Cheri Gillings- Changes UK CIC

" Damian first started to train up Red Rose Recovery volunteers as accredited coaches in 2013, he helped us to develop a sustainable train the trainer approach. Since then he has continually supported and encouraged us to grow from strength to strength to the point where we now use that coaching model to win business helping us to sustain the Charity. No matter how busy Damian is, he has always made the time to lend he's support, be it a phone conversation or a face to face over a cup of coffee. He is the genuine article and a quality gentleman. Best wishes in your new endeavours "

Peter Yarwood - CEO Red Rose Recovery.

" I have had the pleasure to work with Damian for some time now. What sets him apart is an ability to connect the individual with his own emotions in a safe non-shaming way, paired with a focus on further discovering ones own life purpose and driving values. Working with Damian has allowed me to accept myself wholly with compassion and to connect with a deeper meaning for my life, where I can flourish and impact the world. "

Pascal D. Procurement Director GSK

" It was a pleasure to work with Damian. I was unsure about counselling as I believed it wouldn’t help me with my issues at the time. However, after just one session I felt much better in myself. I looked forward to our sessions and would come away feeling uplifted and positive. I would definitely recommend Damian for anyone looking for someone to talk to as he helped me in many ways. "

Jay Thompson - Landscape Designer

" It is with great pleasure I recommend Damian. I came to him with a number of irrational insecurities, which were impacting my performance at work. Our time together helped me grow in confidence, overcome fears of public speaking and I left feeling a different man. The ‘fit’ with Damian felt really natural and I have no problem admitting I would look fwd to our counselling sessions. Since counselling, I have been promoted, have better work life balance and better relationships with friends and family. I owe it to Damian. Sincerely grateful. "
