About me

Hi I’m Debbie and I specialise in personal and relationship coaching and mentoring.
Clients who work with me move their lives from negativity; conflict; feeling unhappy; unfulfilled; sabotaging; criticism and struggling to make decisions. This allows people to move into a life that's realistic to what is important to them. Most importantly a life that's heartfelt and authentic

My areas of specialism are Women's issues, Anxiety & Worry, low mood & depression, Relationship issues and trauma. Here are some examples:

- working with women where life has knocked you sideways or thrown a curved ball or life feels like it never really got started. Many older women who are mums and wives come to see me who want to leave their partners but are fearful of a single life and feal guilt and hurt for splitting up their families.

-Anxiety, worry and panic - struggling to make decisions. Self-sabotage, self criticism.
- Low Mood and depression.
-Anxiety and worry.
- Poor self image and self esteem and self worth issues. "Not being good enough".
-Traumatic life events
- Fertility matters and ttc.

- Relationship conflict and breakdown. 90% stay togehter -after 2 year follow up.
Feeling unloved, lost and uncared for.
-Always putting everyone else first.
- Transition through divorce and separation.
Grieving the loss of a loved one (physically and psychologically).

you will learn skills to:

  • Strengthen your friendship
  • Deepen your understanding of one another
  • Spice up your intimacy

I believe we all deserve and have the capacity within ourselves to enjoy happy and fulfilled lives. I help women and couples to realise this vision and change their lives for the better.

Testimonial: “I just wanted to drop you a little email (which knowing me will go on a bit) just to update you on how I’m going. I just feel that if I’d helped someone to make a huge change in their life I’d like to know they are doing well. And I am!

With my experience as a life &relationship coach, counsellor, psychotherapist I can help you accept and move on from your personal, emotional and psychological difficulties. Free from your unhappiness, worry and self-limitations you can meet life’s challenges and enjoy the life you want to lead.

Whether you’re living the after effects of trauma, experiencing unhappiness, or feeling like something is blocking you from achieving your aims and aspirations, I can help.  Importantly, I will work with you to provide insights and tools in order that you can have a mind that serves you rather than sabotaging your hopes;dreams; aspirations and desires.  Learn how to deal with the inner commentary and self critical voice.

I use a mix of coaching tools: mind management techniques; including guided visualisations (a form of light hypnotherapy), NLP, counselling (where appropriate and agreed), relaxation techniques, communication models, self-compassion & mindfulness, psycho-sensory approaches including: spectrum emotional therapy, and coaching, Havening to help empower you to make your life what you want it to be. If you’re ready for change I can help you to make it.

I can help you to improve all aspects of your life:

I offer a free no-obligation, 30-minute introductory session so you can be sure you want to work me before committing yourself.

About me:

Pragmatist - Down to earth, straight-talking and goal-focused – I’m not your average life coach, when you read more about me you’ll see why.

Professional- I am highly-qualified with a Diploma in Counselling and psychotherapy (from the HGI Institute) a Life Coaching Diploma, Mindfulness teacher and coach, Cert Ed, and many other therapeutic credentials, including acupressure, EFT, matrix re-imprinting, NLP and Heartmath.

Executive - My diverse career has given me a wealth of experience. I have an MSc in Governance/Corporate Social Responsibility, as well as being a qualified Chartered Secretary(ICSA).

Nurturer – I am a qualified A&E nurse. Being from a caring profession, I ‘m naturally warm, compassionate and empathetic, plus…nothing shocks me. In my spare time, I volunteer as a personal coach at a Devon-based charity, helping people with emotional and physical difficulties.

Motivator – I am a tough lady, from an army background and as a life coach, I get results. If you’re lacking impetus, or have lost your way…I’m just what you need to kick-start your life. My ethos is all about challenging and motivating people to be the very best you can be.

Survivor – Life has not always been straightforward for me…I’ve had to overcome many challenges. Years ago, I was struck down by a debilitating chronic illness. It was a long journey to re-discover a zest for life but it has made me who I am today.

Believer - I have always embraced life with a strong belief system. As a life coach and mentor, my aim is to empower people. With courage, determination and point-blank refusal to give up – you can do anything.

Sportsperson - At the tender age of 14 I swam the English Channel. I have also competed internationally at triathlon, and am an accomplished horsewoman.
