It wasn’t long before her already keen and honed skills brought success to her and she was able to develop a manufacturing arm of the business as well as decorating display homes for Masterton Homes, AV Jennings and the like.

Confidence in Action - CIA

Throughout her many and varied experiences, Darleen’s acute awareness of what works and what doesn’t has meant that she has been able to help others in developing their own successful business strategies and procedures. She also rubbed shoulders with different types of Business/Performance/Personal Counsellors, Coaches, Lawyers, Medical Practitioners and successful SME owners with wildly differing styles. What she noticed was that a more flexible, attuned and direct approach was needed to fully service the needs of Individuals and Business owners. This is why Darleen began her own Coaching business - Confidence in Action, C.I.A “TM” in 2009 she them went on to add Mediation and Counselling to her skills.
