Deborah is a highly intuitive and gentle coach who can help you towards making your everyday more and more like your ideal day. She trained with and was certified by Dr Martha Beck, a best-selling and New York Times featured author who has worked with Oprah Winfrey and Deepak Chopra.
Coaching is available by Skype or by phone. In person coaching is available in Oxfordshire by prior arrangement and she also offers coaching at Bamford Haybarn Spa at Daylesford Organic, Gloucestershire.
Deborah is also qualified and experienced as a teacher and as a writer. Her work is featured widely online on sites such as those of Deepak Chopra, ‘The Huffington Post,’ ‘Tiny Buddha’ and ‘Mind Body Green’.
She is also a trained career coach and can assist in determining new career direction. She made the move from working in a merchant bank in London to teaching and then through explorations of interior design, floristry, photography and art history to eventually claiming her work as a coach.
Other areas of particular expertise include working with introverts and sensitive people to build confidence, working with those have creative businesses, helping people with the health and wellbeing goals and helping parents to balance the needs of their family with their own needs and their desire to do their important work in the world. She also enjoys helping ‘empty nesters’ decide what is next for them.
With her degree in Creative Writing, degree in English Lit and her online writing experience she enjoys helping writers get the words down and be a writer rather than just talking about it. Helping create structures for workshops, talks, courses and projects in a workshop style is also a fun creative experience that she enjoys facilitating when her clients require this.
Deborah’s work is both hugely supportive and deeply transformative.
Deborah’s style of coaching encompasses deep listening and questioning, challenging thought work and cognitive techniques, metaphor work, meditations, visualisations, mind-body awareness tools, dream analysis and acceptance commitment therapy amongst a tapestry of other tools and modalities she has learnt through her passion for coaching. Each session is completely tailored to the needs of her clients and their current challenges and desires.
“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.

"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
