“Choice means freedom. Freedom is a terrible burden, but there is no escaping it.”
Hi! I know that making choices and decisions can be very difficult for some of us. My goal for this website is to give some help to people who would like to become wiser choice-makers – or, if you prefer, “decision-makers. Does that include you? If so, you are in the right place!
I am Diana Gardner Robinson, sometimes known as the Coach of Choice, and this is my website. Some (maybe many) years ago, when I was studying psychology, I focused a lot of my learning and my research on issues of choice. Looking back, perhaps it was because at that time I did not feel I had much. Perhaps it was because at certain points in my life people had tried to convince me that I couldn’t make good choices even if I had the opportunity.
Later, when I first chose to became a Life Coach, I found that many of my clients had difficulty making choices, for many different reasons. I would work with them to help them find ways to move forward in the directions that they – not other people – wanted to choose for their life paths.
Now, while still coaching those who want to take advantage of my experience and supportive coaching style, I am developing a program that covers all of what I call the “pillars” of choice, for there are many aspects of our lives that affect our ability to become wise choice-makers. Stay tuned for more on that.
My major goal is that my clients learn to outwit their worry about choices, and to welcome – or at least live with – uncertainty.
There are many aspects to becoming a wise choice-maker. When you have confidence in your ability to make choices, then you can usually (no promises about always) shake off uncertainty and the worry it often brings, just as ducks shake water off their backs. I’ve been coaching since 1997, have a doctorate in Social Psychology, and you can see more about my qualifications under the “About” tab.

In case you were wondering, by the way, it is not the role of a coach to tell people what choices to make. It is the role of a coach to help people to discover what their options are, and to gain the confidence that will enable them to make their own decisions.
I’d love to accompany you on your journey.
Be well, enjoy your choices, and I hope you’ll contact me today or any time you think I can help!
