I’m a life coach for mums, moms and primary caregivers of whatever gender identity who look after children.
They want to make time to connect with their child. They also know that they need to be a whole lot kinder to themselves as they have a tendency to be hard on themselves. They want to show their child how to live a great life by doing that themselves and creating and maintaining a strong connection with their child as their child grows and as they grow as an individual.
Who I Work With
The people I work with are creative, intelligent and capable, even if they would find it hard to admit as much. They’re often introverts and have a tendency to perfectionism.
They’re the kind of people that other people rely on. At home they bake for bake sales, fix the broken things, mop up the messes and read the school newsletter with care.
If they work beyond all the work there is to do as a parent, caregiver or guardian, they do or aim to do work that matters to them and make a positive difference in the world.
They have a tendency to put the needs of others before their own. They’re successful at work or are building a passion-led business.
They’re often multi-passionate and as a result end up with lots of things they want to do, then they get frustrated when they can’t. They care deeply about their child and want to spend special time together. They also get frustrated when this special time seems to get lost in all the things that they need to do.
What We Do Together
I help my clients to be clear about what they want in their life and clear about how they want to connect with and support their child. I help them move towards their goals in their business or work, while not losing sight of the important relationship with their child.
I help them become calmer, more centred, more confident and more able to enjoy their everyday.
I help them believe in themselves and in their dreams. I help them be connected with their child as they go on this journey. I help them forgive themselves when things don’t go as planned. I help them be the best supporter for themselves and for their child.

‘As a mother, Deborah really knew where I was at. She was SO gentle and totally got my sensitivity 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 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 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.

‘Working with Deborah gave me a greater sense of calm and peace and trust/faith that things are working out exactly as they should. I appreciated her calm, gentle energy, her intuitive hunches and the creative playwork she assigned. She was willing to let me go all over the place, exploring this and that nook or cranny and then also always pulling me back to the central issue…intuitively knowing what was most important to look at. I appreciate the encouragement that I DO have access to my intuition and inner wisdom…the reminder that I discount it too quickly.’
Julia Yanker, Transformational Coach
‘When I first signed up for coaching I thought it would be more of a step by step solution, rather than the amazing guidance that it was. I gained more clarity, direction and a sense of calmness. Deborah was able to guide me to go deep and explore what was the true reason behind the overwhelm. I would recommend working with her to anyone that is feeling stuck, overwhelmed, lost or confused. She has some great tools for self-exploration and I absolutely love her approach, her energy, and her coaching method. She has tools to go deep and to the core, and that is the key to true and deep transformation.’
Gabby-G, Emotional Healer.
‘Working with Deborah has been such a powerful and positive experience for me. Before I approached Deborah, I wasn’t sure whether life coaching was right for me, in fact, I wasn’t sure what I wanted or needed! But my first hour working with Deborah was a revelation!
Her gentle and uplifting demeanor and an ability to ask just the right questions in the right way allowed me to explore my priorities and options in a way that just wouldn’t have been possible alone or with the friends and family I usually “mull things over” with. I really valued the way Deborah can root out and reflect back exactly what I am thinking and feeling in a way that helped me find clarity and a sense of positive momentum towards my goals.
I would definitely recommend working with Deborah to anyone who is experiencing change in their personal or professional life, or anyone who is simply pondering, “What is my next step from here?’
‘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).’

I would recommend Deborah to anyone looking for a life coach.
She is empathetic, encouraging and fun to work with.
She has lots of tools and resources and can tune into what you need at any given time.
Before working with Deborah I was nervous about summer vacation. How would fun, family and starting up my business all fit in without anything being sacrificed?
Deborah guided me to find the answers I had inside all the time. And this summer has been everything I wanted – productive, fun and connected!

‘I am now more mindful about very specific things. My body, and my feelings about it, my relationships with my children. What I have found is that, through coaching, I talk about something very specific and discover strategies to help with that issue. I LOVED the strategies! I loved the way that you would listen to me and uncover the roots of what was really bothering me.’
‘I would recommend coaching sessions with Deborah! She is such a good listener. She hears the actual words and what I am saying between the words. She accurately and compassionately reflects what I share and shares her own experience along with down the earth, gentle and helpful methods of working with my challenges.’
Since I began coaching with Deborah I can spot my problems and challenges and move through them in a way that is gentle to me and also more successful. I am spending more time on the things in my life that I value and less on the things that aren’t important and don’t serve me. I am exercising regularly which gives me a huge boost, and spreading self-care throughout the day so that I can keep myself fuelled all day long.
The best part of the coaching sessions for me has been the way Deborah helps me see the problems and challenges for what they are: a collection of thoughts about circumstances. The thoughts get in the way of doing something helpful about a problem, so dealing with the thoughts is my first step these days. Deborah has shared a wide range of tools to help me navigate difficult situations, and the practice has helped me to use them in all areas of my life.’
‘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, Women’s Empowerment Advocate
‘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, Certified Master Coach, MBI, BKI.
‘Deborah! Watching you grow as a person, woman, wife, mother, and coach these past three years has been awe-inspiring. You’ve stepped into a way of being with yourself — confident, trusting, loving, joyful, steady, true — and from there, things have shifted. You are loving your partnership! Loving your little one! Loving your whole life! And, from my perspective, that has given you the courage and strength to step out into the world as a coach. Your own journey — from fear to love — has given you the only thing that teaches, real- life experience. I know that anyone who has the privilege of working with you is exceptionally fortunate to have a supportive guide who understands what it means to transform and evolve. Because you have. Massively and beautifully.
I love you!’
