Meet Dana Svoboda

Welcome! I'm Dana, Czech-South African, based in London.


I coach individuals and groups: emotional intelligence, wellbeing, mindfulness meditation and yoga.

I’ve worked in the tech industry for just over a decade and have been with Makers since 2014.


As a Holistic Coach, I’ve worked with thousands of people, coaching them to improved wellbeing.


Along my own journey, I’ve moved through a variety of challenging chapters including the death of loved ones, depression, heartbreak and more. 

In everything I've encountered, I came to discover a few fundamentals of life and keys to enduring Joy - Emotional Intelligence and our relationships with ourselves (and the rest of the world).


Consciously sifting through my experiences to heal, learn and continue enjoying life has meant that I’m usually the initial subject of my own ’Test Driven Personal Development’.


I believe that life is meant to feel really good and I absolutely love helping others connect with their true Joy!
