About me

Experienced Dr Martha Beck Certifed Coach and trained Career Coach offering:

Career Coaching

Weight Coaching

Parenting coaching - Parents of school-age children and coaching workshops for mums and teen daughters.

Career coaching for kind, creative, intelligent women. In particular, I help women who need to relocate with their partner's jobs or who have partners in very responsible roles that mean they are the person everyone relies on at home. I help women figure out what it is they want to do in their career and then work step by step by step towards that.

Weight Coaching - I help women to learn to love their bodies and improve their relationship with food and exercise so that their weight isn't the thing they think about most of the time. I help them to start doing the things that their weight stops them from doing.

Parenting coaching- Is your parenting feeling more aargh that aah? Coaching can help you to grow in your relationship with your child/children and with yourself without needing to be perfect all the time.

Deborah trained with and was certified as a life coach by Dr Martha Beck, a best-selling and New York Times featured author. She also has trained as a career coach and is part of a Washington DC based career coaching team in addition to running her own coaching practice.

Coaching is available by Skype or by phone. he also offers in-person coaching at Bamford Haybarn Spa at Daylesford Organic, Gloucestershire.

“Deborah holds a calm and kind space for her clients. She shows up with deep skills and sensitivity. You can trust her completely to guide you as you change your life.”

Susan Grace Beekman, Master Certified Coach, Byron Katie Coach.

Further information


"Deborah holds a calm and kind space for her clients. She shows up with deep skills and sensitivity. You can trust her completely to guide you as you change your life." Susan Grace Beekman, Master Certified Coach.

"Deborah is a natural coach and amazingly resourceful – she always knows just the thing that will help you with your issue. She is truthful and open and gets to the core of the issue. With Deborah there is nowhere to hide, which is perfect, because she is on your side, she is genuinely supportive of you to reach your true potential, and she knows how to guide you there." Ozlem

"Coaching with Deborah has changed my life in a very significant, positive way. I’ve been challenged to think about things differently, in a much better than the way I would naturally revert to thinking. My mind has expanded. My belief in myself feels even more secure. I have taken away many life lessons even from the very first coaching session."

"I would recommend working with Deborah to mums who want to run their own businesses from home (or similar) because this would be perfect for these types of visionary, entrepreneurial women. Deborah challenges you to think about problems or internal battles very differently but in such a way that it is YOU discovering the changes and solutions for YOURSELF. She guides people to be their own best friend again and to make changes that they can take away from the call and apply to real life scenarios (without Deborah around to talk through the steps)." Roxanne Ford

"Deborah is a one-of-a-kind coach. She got straight to the heart of my challenge without judgement or discomfort, quickly helping me see through my problem with a new clarity and getting me to come up with ways to dissolve it, which has literally removed the issue. Deb is extremely easy to talk to, incredibly smart and you really feel her intuition. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough to anyone wanting to make positive changes in their life, whether you are entirely new to life coaching, a coach-in-training or a fully qualified coach yourself." Alison O’Leary

"As a mother, Deborah really knew where I was at. She was SO gentle and totally got my sensitivity and and could handle it, which I really appreciated. There were so many results and realizations that it is difficult to capture them all. I realized that that I don’t have to sell myself short I can make my dreams for work and life manifest, but I need to ensure self care and really really hone my intuition and listen to my gut instincts, so I don’t get overwhelmed with life. I’ve also gained more confidence in my writing and published articles. I loved having Deborah to confide in and found the email coaching in between sessions hugely supportive. I would recommend coaching with Deborah to other mums like me that are struggling to work out what to do post baby, to budding writers, to coaches, to sensitive people. Deborah was there for me when I needed her, through the yucky times and in the good. She was so dependable. I’m now excited about the growth of my Earth Mama business and looking forward to working with my new clients."  Elizabeth Santos
