Hello and thanks for visiting this section. I'd like to tell you a little about myself and the work I do and hopefully this will help you to make your decision about taking your enquiry forward and our working together.
I came into coaching during my time in "regular" employment as a Teacher, Headteacher and Local Government Officer: it felt to me to be entirely right to "ask not tell, " and to recognise that we all have our challenges and the capacity to deal with them; it's just that sometimes we need a little help!
I established my Coaching Business in 2003 and provided support for Human Resource Teams, working with employees who were experiencing some challenges in the workplace. As you might imagine, some of the challenges were the product of other issues that were very much "on their mind" and having an unwanted impact on their lives both in and beyond work. Through this I have worked with clients in order to :
Develop more productive habits and behaviours
Increase their confidence and self belief
Increase their capacity to handle setbacks
Clarified goals and put a personal development plan in place
Identified their strength and abilities to apply to the "here and now"
I have a degree in Psychology and have a range of certified, related qualifications and experience that add to the depth and range of my professional profile. I am also a qualified workplace mediator. I deliver training and development in areas related to Emotional Intelligence, Personal Development and dealing with Change and Transition.
I hope that having read the above, you feel that we might work together: I'll leave you with some beliefs that are very important to me, ones that I hope will mean something to you.
(1) If you've reached out on here you have already done the hardest part
(2) I'll meet you "where you are now," not where I think you ought to be!
(3) I consider it a privilege to work with other people in what are often sensitive areas, I will treat you with dignity and respect.
Please, if you are considering contacting me, think about your commitment to the process. I'll be straight with you: when emails and texts from me go unanswered and it's a frustrating waste of time and money. If you find a coach that you feel is more suitable for you, that's great and I wish you every success, however, can please let me know when I contact you with follow up emails and texts.
Thanks for your time and I very much look forward to hearing from you.

I am glad to have worked with John from DY3. He guided me well and from a point of not knowing how to move forward, I am now propelled to do lots of things today. He taught me how to be reflective and keep the positives to as the source of energy. Today I am able to tap into the skills he has taught easily. I really thank John for helping me. More...
Working with John from DY3 has been a fantastic experience. He is an expert on guiding you on the journey to understand yourself better that you ever have. I've read so many books on self-development, yet always struggled to put it into action. John's combination of emotional intelligence and a well-proven process turns over the stones of what makes you 'tick' as a person. It's made me realise how I overused some of the strengths I have, whilst still being able to recognise how they've served me well in some situations. I would recommend John to anyone who is feeling frustrated about where they find themselves and want to feel more in control of their lives. Thank you John! More...
John has an exceptional way of seeing through the facade and identifying the real needs of those whom he coaches. His rapport is direct as well as collaborative and his experience shines through. A thoroughly rewarding experience to work with him. More...
Enabling and empowering are 2 words that come to mind when I think of John. He has an adept ability to unpick complex situations and identify what the real issues and blockers are.
With a completely non-judgemental, no-nonsense, ‘we’ve all been there or similar’ style of approach that, enables the individual or team to identify what the difficulties and blockers really are and coaches them to identify working solutions not just for now but for the future too.
John would always be my first port of call for this type of support. More...
DY3 Solutions have helped tremendously over the years to develop my confidence and resilience. The support received has been transformative to how I approach complexity within a working environment.
Having someone to listen, advise and coach me on issues of concern has been beneficial on many levels. The open and communicative nature of the work has helped significantly to build trust and friendships across teams.
John helps you to focus on values and to recognise what is working well and supports you to find appropriate solutions. It is a positive and very effective approach and one which i would highly recommend other people to experience. More...
it was a very positive experience
DY3 Solutions is a fantastic company. John is a truly amazing professional and very knowledgeable. During my brief engagement with DY3 Solutions, John helped me in a number of ways. For example, he listened to my concerns and supported me to identify solutions for the circumstances I was facing. I would have no hesitation in recommending DY3 Solutions for the many services they offers :) More...
John and the team are highly valued and much respected friends and supporters of EmployabilityUK. John's wisdom and compassion are present in everyting he does whether he's working as a coach, a mentor, a presenter or a trainer. He has a caring style and his expertise was particularly welcome when the charity needed some one to one mentoring for a young person facing some considerable challenges. This was delivered in a sensitive way, with John not only guiding towards a positive outcome, but taking everyone along the process with him, including the parent. Highly recommended. More...
DY3 Solutions are a first class company that has supported me in the following ways:
On a personal level, by listening to my concerns and issues and guiding me to appropriate solutions.
I have engaged them to support those within the organisations in which I have been employed to help resolve complex casework with high risk for organisational reputation.
The response of John in these circumstances is excellent. His careful analysis of situations and his manner of delivery has resulted in what I would describe as stunning results.
I would have no hesitation in recommending John and DY3 solutions to support you across the full business portfolio. I would welcome the opportunity to share more if needed, but put simply, if you engage John, you will have access to an excellent professional who offers real value for money. More...
Working with John Dooner of DY 3Solutions was one of the most POWERFUL TRANSFORMATIONAL moments in my career.
John is a strong communicator that works excellently in all the modalities.
He is empathetic professional and has real world experience to back his entire resume.
Everyone know how much of an asset John is, and engaging his services is the best thing you could do now for you organisation. More...
I had the best help I could of asked for from John (and Pat) without Johns assistance I would of been in an awful situation but thanks to him I am in a much better place. Cant thank him enough.
John listens well and enables me to reflect on the best solutions, prompting me with insights and alternatives.
This means we have conversations about the situation to make for a better understanding of the scenario in the widest sense. When working with DY3 the approach is to highlight what is working and build any change on that so that actions are well thought through for everyone concerned.
My work covers university, city council and SME innovation in the UK and Europe. More...
I first met John in 2011 when I desperately need some help with career challenges. John is a brilliant coach, with a supportive, empathetic and friendly style. He is easy to build a rapport with and he puts you at ease in a professional relationship where you feel respected and not judged. I complete trust John and can highly recommend him in all capacities. More...
