I coach around the themes of life purpose, confidence, self-care, career and self- trust.

I work with genuine, well-meaning people who want to make a positive difference in the world. They’re amazing, but they don’t always realise it.

I help you to discover why you’re here, what you’re here to do and I help you to move past all the stuff that’s getting in your way (unless that’s Darth Vader as I once ran into him in John Menzies in Glasgow and it freaked me out).

You get this one life and even if you believe in reincarnation, you only can be present in this one life you live now. You don’t want to get to the end of your life and regret never having fulfilled your purpose while you’re here.

You have always have a sense that there is something that you are meant to do and you feel more and more urgency to find out what that is and to claim it for yourself.

For some this comes easy. You remember children on the playground who were sure what it was that they wanted to do. You never had that certainty and you never felt that one job could be all of who you are or who you are meant to be.

You still want to have work in the world that matters but more than that you want a feeling of rightness about your life, that you are doing what it is that you are meant to be doing and that the skills you have and the potential you have do not need to be dormant.

I help people to understand who they are and how they want to express that in the world. I help them uncover what’s in the way of being that most brilliant version of themselves and then to move past those blocks so that they can lead the life that they were meant to lead.

Maybe you are a bit of a worrier or a highly sensitive person. Maybe you don’t think you’re perfect enough to be a perfectionist. (A sign of your perfectionism perhaps?) Maybe you’d love to feel calmer and more present in your everyday.

You also know you’re highly creative and others depend on you to be there for them. You’re reliable, thoughtful and kind, but all of that sometimes takes your energy a bit more than you’d like. You know you want to work towards being the best version of who you are and you’re willing to go on the learning journey that will take you there.

If you are interested in coaching with me please email me at deborah@deborahchalk.com and we can set up a free 20 minute call to talk about where you are in your life and to see if we are a good fit for coaching.

I also offer coaching workshops for mothers and their teen daughters, where both the mother and daughter share being coached and both are present at the same time on the coaching calls. These sessions look at themes such as confidence, peer pressure, exam stress and career choices.

I’m Deborah Chalk and I’m a Martha Beck Certified Life Coach. I hold a Masters with Honours in English and Philosophy, a Bachelors with Honours in Creative Writing and Art History and I’m a fully qualified and experienced teacher. I’ve  guest posted on a large number of well-known websites. I’m trained as a career coach and recently ran the training for a new cohort of career coaches.

I use a huge variety of tools and my own intuition when coaching. My work draws on the work of Dr Martha Beck, ‘The Work’ of Byron Katie and on The Law of Attraction in particular, but I always work in a very individual and tailored way with my clients.

Coaching is available by Skype or by phone. I also offer in-person life coaching and writing coaching in the Cotswolds in England and in particular at Bamford Haybarn Spa at Daylesford Organic, Gloucestershire.

Coaching is not a substitute for therapy or medical supervision so if you are not coping with your day to day please get the help that you need.

If you’d like to talk about how we could work together email me at deborah@deborahchalk.com and we’ll set up a call by phone or by Skype to talk about where you are in your life at the moment, what you need help with and how working with me as your coach could help.

“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.”
