The Power Of A Group
I’m delighted to bring to you my Group Coaching Programmes, suitable for individual clients ready to join a group of peers on their development journey, and also organisations or groups who want to support their people connect and advance.
Group Coaching involves bringing together a collection of individuals who share a common interest, but whom each have individual goals and objectives related to that interest. The power of the group comes from a facilitative approach that leverages the knowledge, experience and resources of the entire group to enable each individual to meet their goals.
The ‘common interest’ can be varied – my job is to bring that subject to life and create the right environment for everyone to connect in a meaningful way, be able to personally develop and grow, and do so in a way that leads each person to be able to advance from where they started.
It’s a hugely effective and rewarding experience for everyone involved – me included!
“Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.”
– Amy Poehler
Group Coaching Programmes
I run both open programmes for individuals to join at specific points throughout the year, and bespoke programmes for organisations or independent groups developed and run at any time.
Designed For You
Let’s create something specifically tailored for your group to deliver maximum impact

- Recent examples have included: the juggle-struggle for working parents; bouncing back from burnout; boosting confidence around imposter syndrome; and menopause mayhem.
- Groups can be run with 4 – 12 individuals and the duration will be influenced by the topic, group needs, and budget.

There’s something to be learned from everything1-2-1 Coaching – “Her intuitive coaching and leadership has allowed me to develop skills that have supported me in having a very successful and nourishing career. During times of challenge professionally she’s provided guidance, support and nurtured me through. Never solving the problem for me, Deb simply helped me find my way through for myself. Her focus on personal reflection too ensures no experience is lost, there’s something to be learned from everything, she helps you find the good in whatever you’ve gone through.” – Programme Manager
More from life and perform optimally1-2-1 Coaching – “I have been working with Deb to improve my wellbeing whilst maintaining a demanding career which often feels all-consuming. I’ve found that I’ve not only been able to get more from my life outside of work but I’ve also been able to perform optimally whilst at work as I’ve been starting from a more positive, happier, clear-headed and energised me.” – Programme Manager
Helps you change course1-2-1 Coaching – “The magic happens when you meet people who have a significant impact on you such that it awakens a part of you that you didn’t know existed or helps you change course at a critical point in your life. Deb, in particular, was this for me. It’s probably her selfless attitude towards genuinely seeing people thrive that is the key factor and when you meet her you’ll know exactly what I mean.” – Communications Director
Be the best and happiest you can bePeer Reference – “I’ve known Debs for a few years now and her knowledgeable positivity, professionalism, caring nature and visionary ideas inspire me more and more.

Positive and professional approach1-2-1 Coaching – “I met Deb at a time when I was struggling with stress and the impact that was having on my life and health.

First class nutritional adviceNutritional Therapy – “I felt I was fairly well informed about nutrition but with so much conflicting advice it is easy to get confused. With first class nutritional advice from Debs I have been able to make informed choices about my diet and lifestyle and the results have been very beneficial. I feel I am now empowered with the knowledge of how a balanced, nutritionally sound diet can help to achieve an optimum level of good health and a feeling of well-being.” – Finance Manager
Taking more control1-2-1 Coaching – “My new year’s resolution was to bring my busy and overwhelming life back to order. With Deborah’s guidance I’m taking more control, say yes to less and being more selective with my time. I’m enjoying more time with my gorgeous family and having more “me time”. I’m feeling reconnected, mindful, energised and inspired and that feels amazing!” – Busy Working Mum & Manager
Positive impact on my life1-2-1 Coaching – “I have thoroughly enjoyed the coaching sessions – what a positive impact you are having on my work, life and personal well-being. The sessions are really productive and thought-provoking and make me feel motivated to improve and venture outside of my comfort zone. Your approach is always one which is subtle but impactful, thus striking the perfect balance.” – Customer Services Professional

Valuable and much needed serviceNutritional Therapy – “What a valuable & much needed service. Deborah takes the time to get to know you & your lifestyle. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the nutrition side but also on much wider ways to improve wellbeing.” – Entrepreneur & Business Owner
I grew so much in confidence1-2-1 Coaching – “I first began working with Deborah when I was suffering the effects of burnout and feeling extremely stuck and lost. She helped me focus on what mattered to me most and make the changes I needed to make to get where I needed to be. After each session, I would feel reenergised and I would get straight to implementing the steps we had outlined within our session. Everything has been so easy to implement into my busy lifestyle. I am now back to feeling like ‘me’ again! I grew so much in confidence during the process. Deborah is the gentle, motivating push that everyone needs to realise their true potential.” – Business Owner & Busy Working Mum
I can’t tell you enough the benefits1-2-1 Coaching – “I was struggling with juggling my life and work after some significant changes to my job, and the corona virus lockdown. I was home with my child 24/7 and I felt a constant pressure to work and parent in new ways – I felt completely unbalanced, out of control and like I never had a minute to breathe. Deb helped me to explore the situation and to recognise new ways that I could find moments of freedom from the pressure and responsibility. She was excellent at guiding me to delve deeper into what I was struggling with. Her insights and approach helped me to recognise what I needed in those moments and take control. I can’t tell you enough about the benefits! Everything was at my pace, so I never felt any pressure, and I looked forward to our sessions and what I would learn from them each time.” – Senior Communications Manager
The best thing I could have done1-2-1 Coaching – “I was dealing with a difficult work situation that I’d never experienced before and it was impacting me both at work and at home. I was feeling really isolated and struggling to cope. Having sessions with Deb was the best thing I could have done. She helped me to break the problems down and create specific action plans to help me tackle different things as they came up, as well as being a support to just talk things through with. I’ve had been having sessions for a couple of months and I genuinely don’t think I could have got through this without Deb. Her support and guidance has been incredible.” – Communications Manager
I was overwhelmed, frightened and lonely1-2-1 Coaching – “In the very early days of lockdown I was in a bad place. I remember so clearly being sat in my garden on the phone with Deb and I could barely get my words out. I was overwhelmed, frightened and lonely. From that first conversation I knew Deb was the perfect person to support me. She’s calm, kind, an incredible listener but she’s also gently firm with you when you need encouragement. Deb works in a logical and clear way. She’s pragmatic and with that she helps you take practical steps to achieve a goal, at the perfect pace. Over the course of several weeks and sessions she helped rebuild me. I just wish I could have a mini Deb on my desk all day, every day!” – Communications Manager
A great investment in myself and my business1-2-1 Coaching – “I worked with Deborah after embarking on a career change to start my own business after 30 years in the corporate world!. Deborah understood exactly how I was feeling, scared, excited, unsure because she had been in my shoes. I had never worked with a coach on this level but Deborah made things really easy to understand, how she worked and what the outcomes would be by working together. The sessions clarified that I had made the right decision and that I could be a success on my own, a sense of “I can do this” A year in and I still revert to those pages in my notebook it helps me work on new services or stop me procrastinating. A great investment in myself and my business.” – Business Owner
Positively affected my health and business1-2-1 Coaching & Nutritional Therapy – “Deborah has professional humility as she has a wealth of knowledge and experience, but is always looking for solutions as she strives to improve and develop herself and others. It is hard to see where the boundaries lie in terms of her support: life coaching; business mentoring; nutrition and wellbeing. What started as one area of support, seamlessly merged into a more holistic approach. Deborah is professional, warm, empathetic and she takes time to really understand you as an individual. My health, wellbeing and business have been positively affected by Deborah’s services.” – Business Owner
Encouraged me to believe in myselfGroup & 1-2-1 Coaching – “I had a lot on my plate, both personally and professionally. I was home-schooling a 4-year old with a toddler in tow and working full-time at home amidst the chaos! I also had an interview and some decisions to make about my professional development. Deb helped me to prioritise my own wellbeing and bring a calm, considered perspective to a really difficult situation. She coached me to renegotiate my working hours, which had an incredibly positive impact on my wellbeing, and boosted my morale and confidence when it was much needed. She has changed my perspective, way of thinking, helped me to listen, and encouraged me to believe in myself. She was and is an advocate, confidante, coach and cheerleader. Aside from their commitment to dynamic working, I feel that Deb is the best investment that my employer has made to my wellbeing in my eight years with the company.” – Communications Manager
Approachable, friendly and patientStrengthscope Review – “I really valued my discussion about my career journey and what my strengths and weaknesses are and how to turn them into positives. I can’t recommend Deborah enough, she was approachable, friendly and very patient. I wish I had spoken to her earlier in life as she made it clear where my characteristics could be used to my advantage.” – Quality Manager
Deb takes a logical, practical approach1-2-1 Coaching – “Before my coaching sessions with Deb I was struggling to understand how to use my strengths to support my work and career development. From our very first session together, I started to feel differently about my strengths and what I bring to the work table – I had a real lightbulb moment which I’ll remember forever! Deb takes a logical, practical approach, there’s no fluffiness to her coaching style and she gently challenges your thinking. I’m a visual person so we talked about the role of visual prompts to help me remember my key learnings. With Deb’s support, I’m heading off on maternity feeling full of confidence – ready to take on a new baby, and to return to work next year on a great trajectory.” – Communications Manager
Struggled with Self-Belief and Confidence“I’ve always struggled with self-belief and confidence levels, and Deb came into my working life when I was at a low point and was struggling to see the wood for the trees. She has such a kind and caring nature, and really helped me to break down everything into manageable chunks of quick fixes that immediately helped; and then over a long term the more deep rooted causes of some of these feelings and why they are there. I’m still very much working through this, but every session I have with Deb is a step forward. I’ve had 20 years of my working life feeling like this at times, and I can honestly say that it’s only through the work with Deb that I’m starting to fix it and not just plaster over it or try and forget about it.” – Senior Communications Manager
A more balanced life whilst succeeding1-2-1 Coaching – “I took the opportunity of working with Deborah last year as a resilience coach . At the time of starting our coaching journey I felt drained and disillusioned with both life and work . The coaching helped me to put my challenges into perspective and think about my life holistically, whilst starting to work on how to get better balance and still achieve all my goals. Nearly a year later – I am happy, in a very different place, and living a more balanced life – whilst succeeding in my biggest role to date. Thank you.” – Programme Director
I felt like a weight had been lifted1-2-1 Coaching – “Due to increased workload I found myself unable to cope with the demands and pressures of work and became unwell. A job I have been doing successfully for 10 years, and I could no longer cope with and found myself in an unusual situation. I can honestly say that after chatting with Deborah I felt like a weight had been lifted, even after our first session. I found that she really listened and was able to understand what support I needed very quickly. I was able to put a plan in place of how to return to work and how to approach this with my organisation. She made me feel reassured in my approach, gave me the confidence I needed to get back on track, and gave me helpful coping techniques which I could put into practice on a daily basis. I wouldn’t be back on track today without her help and support.” – Medical Coordinator
My experience has been life-changing1-2-1 Coaching – “I started working with Deborah when I was at a crossroads career-wise, work-life balance was overwhelmingly in favour of work and I needed a plan! Deborah was recommended by someone I trust, her background had many similarities to mine, and when we met she was calm, objective and we clicked. All of my objectives were achieved, and even more, above and beyond that I dared dream of. I would go as far to say my experience has been life-changing. I feel so much better health, sleep and confidence-wise, I understand my psychological and physiological behaviour more, and I know when to have a word with myself and manage my thought processes much better!” – People and Operations Leader
