#DareMethod and Self-Image
It might sound very controversial coming from a photographer who has been working with images for the last 10+ years, but the most important skill for all of us to develop in the coming years is self-liberation from any mental images we have of ourselves and others.
If you trace back the history of the world it becomes very apparent that we’ve been assigning a lot of value to the physical image, to appearance, to the power of mind over any immaterial, intuitive and imaginary realms of being which essentially contributed to the growing separation among people.
The core idea behind DareMethod is creation of a physical image of you and assignment of a meaning to it based on what you feel and not what you see. Therefore you train yourself to shift the power dynamics from mind to heart and body intelligence.
The benefits of such work among others include - the fresh perspective on yourself, new self-image, liberation from the old one, reestablished relationship with self, opening up to your own intuition. Self-discovery. And a long-lasting memory of that moment imprinted in a physical photograph.
A journey of self expansion and self exploration
Dasha helped me to shine a mirror inside my soul and reconnect with myself. I always feel like a new person after speaking to her—I leave each session feeling empowered and optimistic. She guides you on a journey of self expansion and self exploration, always offering intelligent and observant insight immediately. She offers you tools to overcome your own challenges.
I was able to untangle knots I didn't think were possible to untie and expand my self-awareness.
Coaching with Dasha has been transformational. I was able to untangle knots I didn't think were possible to untie and expand my self-awareness. One thought exercise called 'freedom, and..' allowed me to let go of deep-rooted habits that were usurping my energy. Dasha is an unconditional coach. She showed up to each session fully prepared and ready to connect, full of intuition and knowledge on how to guide and navigate our dialogue. She followed up our sessions with helpful voice notes, and often times during our sessions I would tell her - 'I can't describe it, something about your energy is so deeply helpful.' Our work together catapulted me forward. I discovered Dasha by following her photography Instagram, and lucked out in finding an exceptionally perceptive and fluent coach.
Transformative experience, WOW!!
I wanted to try 1:1 coaching for a long time but something was holding me back until I met Dasha and it just felt right. Her energy, presence, care and love for what she does took me over. And she helped me to transform my life, look inside and see what’s holding me back, what limiting believes/behaviors are holding me back and supported me in taking an aligned action. I had so many breakthroughs, aha moments, realizations and now I am on the way to live my dream life, taking action towards my goals and transforming my life. So grateful! Invaluable experience. Thank you Dasha so much for doing what you do!
Feels Great To Be Heard
Thank you soo very much dearest!
It feels absolutely great to be heard.
You are doing a very noble work and for that Im forever grateful.
I feel better and better after each call.
Thank you for putting things in perspective and making it easy to see everything from the brighter side.
New Practices and Habits
Thanks to our practices, I started journaling (almost) on a daily basis and I definitely noticed a positive shift in my perception of life. In addition to journaling I have also started to wonder what brought me simple joy when I was little and it brought me back to practice piano on my own.
More clarity and less overthinking
First of all I would like to thank you for these sessions and a super valuable time that we spent together.
As for changes, I noticed that I have more clarity in the topics that we discussed and I feel more in control. It helped me to understand how to separate my emotions from overthinking and notice the moment where I purely feel rather than just create scenarios in my head. It helped me to recognize physical changes in my body when negative thoughts are present and redirect my thoughts towards positive inner feelings or analyze where these negative thoughts are coming from and how to fix them practically over time. During the homeworks I realized that simple time management can solve many problems and that it is possible to see the improvement/results in one week and get motivated by small changes.
I will continue practicing my homework:)

Frequntly Asked Questions
How do I become your coaching client?
Get in touch with me to schedule an introductory video call first, so that we can make sure we are a good match.
Do you sell individual coaching sessions or only long term engagements?
I work based on a retainer agreement (it's a monthly fee). The agreement is signed for a period of one month and more. That being said, all of my new clients get to have a free first introductory call and coaching session to get a better understanding of my coaching style and overall energy.
How do you use photography within your coaching framework?
I'll be happy to provide all the details about #DareMethod during our introductory call. To answer this question in short - we will take pictures of you every session (screenshots) and coach based on the images we see every time.
All of the images are confidential, unless agreed otherwise.

Yes, we are in touch via texts, emails, voice messages. After every session I will typically record and send a voice memo to you summarizing the learnings and highlights from our conversation.
