Meet Your Coach/Therapist
Hi, I am Debbie
Thank you for visiting my website. My wellbeing spiritual coaching and holistic therapies encompasses a completely unique approach drawing on over 30 years of clinical therapy experience, teaching and personal development. It’s my wish to help you explore a natural approach to healing to bring more balance, health, joy, and direction into your life. I would be delighted to work with you either face to face at my clinic base in Wimborne or online for remote healing/meditation/Reiki or wellbeing & spiritual coaching. Please sign up to my newsletter too, to keep updated with offers and news on my wellbeing retreats, Reiki training and workshops.
Ever since I can remember I have been an intuitive empathic and compassionate healer, I didn’t know or understand it when I was very young, but I felt deeply, people’s pain, emotions, and frustrations. I sensed things when they were wrong or when danger was around. At the age of 19 I studied beauty and holistic therapies, and as my spiritual growth matured, I began to learn and study many energy and healing modalities like Bowen technique, crystal healing, reflexology, which all came natural to me. One of the hardest things for empathic people is that we can be people pleasers finding it hard to say NO without feeling guilty! We can struggle with boundaries and honouring our own needs, self-care, and respect.
In my 20’s and again in my 40’s I suffered from burnout, from years of pushing myself to the limit, saying yes too often in many situations, and not honouring my needs and the things I valued in my own life. This led to many health problems including debilitating headaches, weight loss, anaemia, anxiety, low mood, low energy, frustration, resentment, chronic stress, and anxiety. Like many of my clients I too found it hard to reach out and share my personal struggles. Too often we push on regardless wearing the masks to just get through, always feeling that it’s our responsibility to make it right or just simply putting our needs at the bottom of the pile. After my beloved Dad passed away, I was introduced to Reiki, to help with grief and sorrow. Eventually I trained in all levels and began teaching others. The principles of Reiki started the self-care practice for me, and along with that came much personal development, growth understanding, healing, and stillness.
Spiritual healing, holistic therapies and wellbeing practices have always been a huge part of my life. The connection to something bigger than myself and the universal support I experience helps to ground me. Like many of you reading this I too have been de-railed, betrayed, hurt, and let down in the past. It’s a horrible place to have to pull yourself out from but know this TRUTH! we all have that ability deep within us, to change and heal to put one step in front of the other. With kindness, guidance, and courage, you can find your way out again and break through to wellbeing and balance again. Many of my clients come to me suffering “burnout” and for help with mental stress, anxiety, overwhelm, low self-esteem and depression, some have lost direction, lost themselves or they just lack “zest” in their lives. My skills can help you manage change too, when everyday life becomes overwhelming, especially when you may have lost direction or purpose.
I have many “tools” in my tool kit, which I drawn on if needed, this is what makes my coaching process and holistic therapies unique to me. I provide a safe confidential space with encouragement, structure, compassion, and empathy to support your journey. I was blessed to discover my passion and vocation early on in life and I feel so honoured to be able to share my gifts with you, to help you overcome any stressful situations you too, may be experiencing.
Blessings, Love & Light!

“Debbie is a super professional. My mental health has improved immensely with our sessions. I have been able to be vulnerable and discuss all my issues, and by doing so, I have been able to evaluate my past trauma, helping me to understand why I was depressed. With Debbie’s help I have been able to change my outlook on life, becoming more present and positive.
The sessions are both professional and informal. There is much more of an organic flow to the sessions, which really helps me to express myself and be vulnerable. If I ever have a bad day, I know that Debbie is only a message away. Debbie also offers physical healing sessions such as Reiki, complimenting the other methods of therapy very well.
In comparison to my previous therapists, I have seen the best results with Debbie as a result of her style and methods. I still have sessions when I feel necessary and I would definitely recommend her to anyone struggling with mental health issues or anyone who feels they have lost their way in life”
“Debbie has this uncanny way of getting to the point of what’s really going on. Her ability to listen and insightfully speak to who I truly am has sent me in a positive direction. I grew in confidence, I lost weight, my life just blossomed”

“I have benefitted from Debbie’s knowledge and experience. She has helped me to overcome some difficult life challenges with her therapies. It is a natural progression into Life Coaching and Debbie’s skill and professionalism in this area has enabled me to regain focus and move forward.”

“The results were almost instant after my first Bowen session with Debbie! Several weeks after a knee operation, I was still unable to get past the limping stage which was putting strain on other areas. My muscles seemed to have locked up and would not relax. Originally I booked in for reflexology, but Debbie advised a short course of Bowen would have much betters results for my condition.
Within an hour of my first Bowen session, I was walking completely limp free and without any discomfort, which in turn has allowed me to slowly reintroduce exercise back into my daily routine.
A month on, and my muscles strengthening daily, I’m now cycling and back to yoga so a very happy client – thank you so much Debbie”
“Absolutely amazing crystal introduction workshop. Loved it and I can’t wait to do the Crystal Facial course in the future. Very thorough teacher, also patient and knowledgeable. Thank you x “
“Debbie is an intuitive, engaging and gentle therapist, with a reassuring manner. I highly recommend her Bowen Technique at Neals Yard. I experienced a tranquil safe space where healing of my neck problem was eased at the first session. This healing took place on many different levels. I will most certainly continue her treatments.”
“Trouble Free! On a one week cycling trip, Debbie kept me loose and pain/trouble free….despite a very high volume of training. She has multiple treatment methodologies in her toolkit and the Bowen was especially effective. I very highly recommend her…and look forward to engaging her again in the future!”
“I can honestly say that I wouldn’t be where I am now without Debbie’s insight, energy and support. Debbie is compassionate and engaging. She is looking at all the issues in a holistic manner, often uncovering unexpected angles through her extensive experience of working with people, the body and its emotions.”
