Advanced Coaching


Patrick Darling, Life Coach

In my coaching programs, I draw on everything I've learned from decades in both the field of human potential and my own business and entrepreneurial pursuits. Having successfully navigated the corporate world as head of online media relations for Intel Corporation - the $56 billion per year Fortune 100 company that literally sets the blistering pace for the high-tech industry - I know first-hand the challenges of maneuvering that lifestyle as well as the challenges of opting to step out of it into the unknown.

Having been there and done that, I fully understand the thoughts, feelings and everything it takes to make that big leap from employee to entrepreneur. I know what it's like to transition from a seemingly more secure and predictable lifestyle, "trading your time and talents for a paycheck," to a life of imagining, creating and fine-tuning your dream-life. I also know what it takes to stay in the corporate world, to grow and thrive within it. Not everyone has to want or need to make a drastic change to find the persistent peaceful, meaningful and joyful lives we all desire. Many do. I did.

I now help people just like you discover the very same thrill of living an extraordinary and creative life, wherever you choose to design your new way of living – to experience a wonderfully fulfilling, purpose-driven lifestyle. It's a leap that so many desire to make today with workforce burnout rates reported as high as >80%! Whether your goal is to stay and grow as a professional in a company, or to go off and do something wonderful, you owe it to yourself to make it amazing from this day forward!

I am delighted to offer a series of genuinely transformational, one-of-a-kind "mind-training" skills and lifestyle coaching programs to help you not just reclaim, but stake a NEW claim on living the joyful, free and prosperous lifestyle you seek and know in your heart of hearts that you also deserve. First, I help you get unstuck from whatever limiting cycle is 'holding you hostage.' Then, I show you how to to transform your mind into being your best friend and most faithful companion going forward. No more being your own worst enemy! Together we'll turn on a pre-wired set of creative faculties you already have at your disposal and I'll show you exactly how to use them, empowering you to go off and create the amazing life YOU desire.


People seek out life, personal and business development coaching for a lot of reasons. Sometimes they're in a place of transition and just need someone to talk to, someone to listen, someone to help re-frame ideas. Often they're seeking meaning, more balance, enjoyment or success in their lives. Perhaps they have arrived at a place in life where they feel the need to go deeper within themselves to discover and learn how to tap new sources of energy and creativity. Perhaps this is you?

Or perhaps you are looking to step out of the corporate world and into creating your own business and want to start out with your best foot forward. Maybe you are struggling with stress, fatigue or have a knowing that cultivating more healthy habits would result in the changes you desire. If any of these describe you, this coaching is for you.

Coaching is a co-creative partnership, a unique relationship that helps people overcome the blocks and challenges that stand between them and the more fulfilling lives they seek. Having a coach can help you explore and discover your highest potential, either as an individual, the member of a team, or as the leader of an organization.

Do you ever find yourself:

  • Feeling stuck in your career, burned out and overwhelmed, without a plan?
  • Challenged with the thought of trading time for money, with ever-decreasing job security?
  • Looking for a lasting sense of spiritual fulfillment but feel stuck, spinning your wheels as a seeker, trying to arrive ‘there?’
  • Feeling like if you could just tap into your true creative potential you could make big things happen for you and countless others?
  • Desperate for authentic meaning and purpose in a frenzy-paced world, flooded by constant distraction and information overload?
  • Feeling fake, like what you’re doing right now for a living isn’t providing any real meaning or goodness for a world in need of real help?
  • Unable to stop taking substances, eating or doing things that you know intuitively are not helping you, but need an escape?
  • Feeling immobilized and depressed by a system out there that just seems broken?
  • Really ready for a fresh perspective to help ignite a new experience of life altogether?


As your coach, I am committed to helping empower you with renewed focus, energy and the mental practices you will need to enjoy and maintain the consistent results you desire in all key areas of your life. Healthy relationships begin with healthy individuals.
