Diana Rickman

Founder/Principal Coach

​Hello, I'm Diana, a certified Children's Mindfulness Facilitator, Growth Mindset Coach, Maths Tutor, and the Founder and Principal Coach at Mindset Magicians. 


I'm passionate about helping young people to create a 'can do' mindset so they feel confident and ready to face challenges.


I know from personal experience how quickly children can lose confidence in their ability to learn or figure things out. 

When I was 9 years old I moved into a new class at school and began to struggle with the way my new teacher taught Maths.  I quickly lost confidence and spent the next 15 years assuming I was 'no good at maths'. Then one day it suddenly struck me that the £250,000 budget I was managing efficiently for a corporate company was Maths!


That was the first time I realised the power that beliefs have to shape how we feel about ourselves and our abilities.


Today I'm a Coach and Tutor who loves encouraging and developing a tangible and self-affirming sense of “I can do this' in my clients.

I have over 20 years of experience working in schools, daycare centres, and kindergartens in the UK and New Zealand as an ESOL Tutor, Teacher Aide, and Learning Support Assistant.


It's been my pleasure and privilege to enable children with a wide variety of learning challenges to take part in mainstream school curriculums and activities. 


I've witnessed the frustrations and challenges all children can face on their learning journey and I believe that having confidence in themselves and a willingness to risk making a mistake are key requirements to help them build resilience and succeed.

I've seen how losing confidence can affect children and young adults...  How hard they try to hide their panic and overwhelm...  How quick they are to tell you everything is OK!


In 2014 I established my coaching business to provide tutoring to help children develop a growth mindset and become fearless problem solvers, confident in their ability to work things out. Real and vital skills not just for learning but to help cope with life's challenges too. 

  • I teach fun, child-focused, easy to practice techniques.

  • I use clinically proven, tried and tested methods.

  • I'll help your child develop a change in thinking that doesn't rely on hours of work or complicated practices. 

I've run a private practice since 2014, coached at Women's Centres in New Zealand and collaborated with Oranga Tamariki supporting young adults as they transition from school to the workplace or further education. 


I’ve had the honour of helping hundreds of young men, women, and children learn ways to manage their stress, worries, and anxiety so they can live more joyful, calm and confidently follow their dreams.

I have two gorgeous adult children (yes I am biased) and so I know that you’re ready to do what it takes to help and support your child – you just want to make absolutely sure you’re doing the RIGHT thing at the RIGHT time and feel confident that every bit of effort you invest will pay off. 


Why not book a free, no-obligation consultation and tell me how I can help you and your child? 

Please book a free consultation or send me an email. Let's make a date to talk.
