Work with me: Private Clients

Ready for the work and home life of your dreams?

When you’re spinning plates like you’re making an appearance on Britain’s Got Talent, both in the workplace and at home, you need a trusted advisor and mentor to help you take a step back from the circus, and work on building the calmer, more fulfilled, and more joyful life you deserve.

As a coach, and qualified nutritional therapist, I specialise in helping busy, successful people build resilience, avoid overwhelm, and enjoy oodles of energy while bombproofing themselves against burnout.

People with bags of responsibility often benefit from a guiding force to help them keep their confidence high and gather the momentum needed to propel them into the home and work life of their dreams.

With two decades in senior corporate roles, and years of experience as a skilled guide and mentor, my coaching helps people like you live lives filled with joy, growth, and contentment.

If you feel like you’re expending a lot of energy, but not achieving your true desires, I can help shift your focus, build your resilience, and improve your overall health and wellbeing to embrace the life you deserve.

My Approach

First and foremost, I’m not a coach that works with her clients at a distance – I’m highly supportive, collaborative, and present, by your side throughout the process of change.

I’m also pragmatic and highly organised, helping my clients identify their objectives and challenges, and develop a future-focused plan that’s highly individual, and gets you where you want to be. Once we’ve developed a plan that suits your personality and lifestyle, I’ll help you generate the momentum and drive needed to keep you pushing forward at the right pace, exploring and overcoming obstacles that get in your way with confidence and mastery.

I’m motivational and unafraid to challenge my clients, but I’m also nurturing, insightful, and authentic. As a qualified Nutritional Therapist, I look at the whole person, not just the situation, and place a heavy emphasis on wellbeing, including both physical, mental, and emotional health.

My coaching has a focus on personal reflection that ensures no experience, good or bad, is discarded. There are opportunities to learn and grow within everything we go through. All it takes is a little courage, insight, and self-reflection to find the positives, and use them as a springboard to move on to a brighter future.

My clients describe me as professional, warm, and empathetic, taking the time to really understand them as individuals.

Become your true self ...

"Coaching helps you to take responsibility for your life, let go of what others think, and become your true self. It's about creating the life you want and deserve."
Emma- Lousie Elsey.

What is Coaching?

We can chat to our mates, bore our families with our problems, and ask our work colleagues for advice – so why would you need to invest time, money, and effort in coaching

Coaching isn’t about being told what to do and how to do it by an external influencer, it’s a partnership and collaboration which helps you to take steps towards your goals by making small, manageable changes.

It isn’t a quick fix either, it’s an ongoing process that places you firmly in the driver’s seat, making key decisions about what’s right for you, and in which direction you want to steer your life. In this respect, it can be hugely liberating, empowering, and rewarding.

Of course, a lot depends on the quality of your guide as you embark on your journey. Your chosen coach should be qualified and experienced, holding your hand, and holding the space, as you find your own answers and direction. The coach-client relationship is intimate and meaningful, so it should also be someone trustworthy, honest, and unafraid to challenge you in a kind, reflective way.

If life has become unmanageable, directionless, or lacking in meaning, coaching can help take you forward, whether you’re grappling with a particular problem, or want to make general changes to live a healthier, more fulfilled, and more balanced life.

If this sounds like you, coaching could help you become the best possible version of yourself:

  • You’re struggling with a problem, but failing to make a breakthrough.
  • You want to move forward, but feel stuck or lost.
  • You’re facing a challenging relationship or situation, and it’s getting in your way.
  • You need to work on a specific area of self-improvement or development.
  • You’re preparing for a life event, like promotion, relocation, or returning to work after a period of absence.

The reasons why people access coaching are many, and varied, but a desire to create deep and lasting change is usually at their heart.

Looking at the Whole You

Gone are the days when we left our real selves at the office door and adopted a professional persona to get through the working day. The whole, authentic you matters if you want to lead a fulfilling life, and unlock your true potential.

My diverse background and extensive experience in working holistically with clients to build resilience and strengthen body and mind help me understand my clients as complete people, and to get under the skin of the issues they’re grappling with.

Working with me, we’ll consider not just your day to day struggles, but your broader health, mindset, experience, and environment, examining how we can leverage these to help you achieve what you desire, and be your best self.

My bestselling book, ‘Have it all Without Burning Out’ gives a much deeper insight into my whole person approach, an approach that I bring to my 1-2-1 coaching sessions with clients in danger of being overwhelmed by their successful but stressful lives.

“Work on yourself more than you do on your job”

1-2-1 Coaching

1-2-1 coaching is a solid investment in you; the pleasure you take from life, your objectives and goals both at work and at home, and the self-care you practise to stay safe and sane while you shoot for the moon – it is possible to have it all, without burning out along the way.

With 1-2-1 coaching, we’ll work together in close collaboration to take a deep dive into your life as it is, the challenges you face, and the areas in which you feel stuck, finding both meaningful and practical ways to move forward and keep the momentum flowing.

I offer a number of 1-2-1 coaching programmes for individuals, all of which can be delivered anywhere in the world via video conferencing.

If none of my programmes feel right for your needs, don’t panic. I often devise bespoke coaching programmes for my clients, based on their individual requirements, taking elements from the content of my packages and tailoring this to suit your desired outcomes.

Pro Bono Coaching

Every year, I like to give back by providing a minimum of ten clients with coaching support, free of charge or at low-cost. This service is restricted to clients who genuinely can’t afford to invest in coaching, but who would benefit hugely from my input and insights. If you’re interested in receiving some pro bono support, there’s an application process to assess your needs. Please get in touch and I’ll be happy to talk you through how it all works.

This is an online instant-access programme that can help you right now and you can access from anywhere at any time.



Client Reviews

Why choose me?

With so many coaches on the market, it’s realistic that potential clients would ask – “why should I choose you Deborah?”

I’m not the right coach for everyone, and if I don’t believe we’ll gel and collaborate well together, I’ll tell you so. I’m not here to take your money and run. I’m here to make a real difference to your quality of life, that’s my reward (though being paid for doing something I love is great, too).

For many of my clients, the fact that I’ve recovered from work-related stress and burnout myself, and have even authored a bestselling book on the topic, makes a real difference, as I can genuinely understand and empathise with what’s going on for you, and offer insights based on personal experience.

For others, it’s the fact that I’m an accredited coach, with a wealth of personal and professional experience to draw on, or that as a qualified Nutritional Therapist, I can help you take care of both body and mind, a holistic approach which provides a resilience boost for people who need to rest, recharge, and rethink their busy, stressful lives.

Whatever attracts you to working with me as a coach, I can’t wait to find out more about you, and how I can help you achieve you thrive within your busy, plate-spinning life.
