Diana Deaver is a teacher, life coach, speaker, and visual artist in Charleston, SC, USA. Her work in emotional healing focuses on deep personal exploration, understanding, and compassion. Diana started her studies in psychology in 2000 with psycho-sociology at Universitatea Virgil Madgearu in Romania and complimented her academic studies with an in-person 12 years apprenticeship with her spiritual teacher. Her formative years in a post-communist developing country contributed to her experiential understanding of the effects that abuse, fear, shame, and hunger can have on human dignity. By personally exploring the power of emotional healing, Diana uses her unique perspective to offer clients the same opportunity for creating and sustaining emotional wellbeing. The work begins with creating a solid healing partnership with each client. Her approach to restoring psychic balance combines depth psychology, experiential exercises, and consistent self-compassion practices. In addition to private life coaching sessions, Deaver facilitates group emotional health workshops, writes scholarly papers on Depth Psychological topics, and speaks publicly or via her YouTube Channel.

Read What Clients and Professionals Are Saying About Diana’s Work:
I highly recommend Diana. Her ability to listen deeply and empathetically is phenomenal, truly her special gift if you ask me. She has helped me see things in our coaching sessions that I was blind to, but the most wonderful thing is the way it’s pointed out in the sessions. I walk away feeling that I made the discoveries which are incredibly empowering. Diana hasn’t once let me fool myself either, I feel a strong sense of direction from her in this sense which is great when working through challenging moments. If you’re looking for someone who is both strong and supple as an emotional coach Diana is a perfect fit in my eyes.
Bonnie Anderson- Reiki Master, Toronto, Ontario
Diana is a very gifted, genuine soul who is driven to help people work through the feelings/emotions that impede their growth spiritually. Her empathy and caring nature provided a very safe and soothing environment which for me made it not only a therapeutic but also somewhat of a cathartic experience. I experienced a few “A ha” moments during our session together. Even though this is just the tip of the “Ice Berg” for me, I feel confident that by continuing to work with Diana, I will finally be able to understand, accept and let go of the emotional pain that is within myself.
Mette Primdal Andersen -Artist, Herning, Denmark
Diana is a fantastic coach. She creates a soft, warm, and comfortable environment, in which you feel safe and free to open up. She has an amazing way of making you see your problems in a different view and giving you space to process it:) I’m very happy to call her my coach:)
Diana has a lovely gift for guiding people into their hearts to heal and discover their greatness. Her sharp insight pierces through the surface challenges that a person is experiencing so that the deeper causes can be found and addressed. Diana has a gentle grace mixed with an infectious curiosity, which makes her a delightful gift for people seeking to discover their own inner treasure. I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of groups that Diana has taught on many occasions, I highly recommend her for your healing and growing journey!
I can confidently recommend Diana as a coach. She offers a clear and authentic approach to getting in touch with the heart of challenging situations and emotions all within a very calm and nurturing dynamic. After just the first session with her, I walked away with new understandings and tangible ways to apply that in my everyday life. I feel Diana is able to offer a great perspective in a supportive and self-empowering manner.
“Public speaking is one of my favorite ways to connect with a community. I love tuning into an audience and then encouraging them to tune into themselves. There’s something very powerful about a group of people simultaneously accessing their inner wisdom.” ~ Diana Deaver
