Debi Haden


and so

Every part of my wellness was at rock bottom when I first went to see Debi. I was overwhelmed by life and had no energy and was treating my body very badly through a very poor diet and alcohol. Debi gave me permission to just get everything out of my system which involved a lot of tears and helped me to prioritise working on those things in my life that would make the biggest difference. We worked at a pace that felt right for me and slowly I began to see a light at the end of my very dark tunnel. After three months I couldn’t believe the difference, I felt fitter and healthier because Debi helped me to identify what had been holding me back and to take back control of my body and how I was treating it. I feel so much happier in myself and am now working with Debi on my future goals, I have a lot of time to catch up on. I can’t thank her enough for her support, compassion, and most of all her dedication to helping me to get to this stage, I can’t wait to see where the next three months takes me with Debi’s support, the world is my oyster!

My doctor referred me to Debi as I was pregnant, needed to have an injection and had the worst possible phobia of needles! All I can say is Wow Wow Wow. At the beginning of the session I cried even talking about having my phobia and the thought of the needle, but by the end of the session I was not only able to talk about having an injection but could picture it calmly too. The next day I went back to the surgery and had the injection, I could not believe it, neither could the doctor! I cannot thank Debi enough for helping me get beyond this phobia!

Having never worked with a development coach I was curious to see what she might be able to do to help me… I decided to engage Debi to work with me to assist me to look at things from a different perspective, both in terms of my personal and professional life. Debi helped me immensely by helping me to be more focused on what I was looking for from both aspects of my life. Debi can help you to kick start your thinking, help you to identify what you want and support you to fulfill your goals. I am now fully focused on what I want to achieve both personally and professionally and enjoying my life to the full with a positive work life balance and a successful business.

I have suffered my whole life with depression and feeling inadequate. Debi has helped me find my balance; where I can feel comfortable with who I am and that I can look forward to my future with hope and excitement. I have coping strategies in place now for dealing with the down days, and recognize them for what they are..’blips’ I can at last look in the mirror and like what I see and feel that I am worthy of good things happening to me. Thank you Debi for helping me to get my life back and believing in me when I didn’t in myself!

After a rollercoaster 12 months, I feel compelled to thank you and let you know how things are going. One year on from the decision to make a change to my previously unhappy and unsatisfying life, I have achieved more than I ever dreamed. I have met a wonderful man. We live together and have just had a offer accepted on our new home which we are disgustingly excited about! My job is fantastic, everything I wanted it to be. For the first time, I can say that I am truly happy, contented and at peace. Our sessions together, really made me realise that I deserved all of these things to happen. After much soul-searching, you had given me the strength and conviction to go and get it and I cannot thank you enough for what you have helped me to do. Love and kind thoughts.

Debi deftly combines her inspirational approach with expertise and practical suggestions. Her work on subtly shifting my own approach to tasks and situations, achieved measureable results and reduced wasted effort – releasing energy for creativity and new achievements, Debi is great to work with and I would not hesitate in recommending her. Debi is adept at perceptively diagnosing issues and enabling the person she is coaching to flourish.

I started working with Debi to help me develop my business, and she has helped me to start growing my business. Debi is full of some great ideas, enthusiasm and is a delight to work with.

It’s very hard to sum-up how much Debi has done for me, as she has completely changed my life. 
Where there was darkness, there is now light. 
Her honesty and integrity and caring approach has helped turn around a critical situation. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to others.
Colin – Newspaper Editor – Essex

In my business it’s important to me that I am surrounded by the right people who work in line with my values. Debi is one of those people. 
Whilst in business I was in a very good place, it was a very different story behind the scenes in my personal life and morale. 

I was seriously overweight, at my lowest ebb and completely lost. 
Thanks to Debi’s endless support I am a different person. 

If Debi says she will do something then consider it done. She is a motivated, inspirational businesswoman and mentor who will help you get to where you need to be. 

I am privileged to know and have worked with Debi and highly recommend her and her business. Not only have I shed a huge amount of weight. My great business is even better, because I am a happier, more focused person. 

Debi will say that’s down to me, but without her this may have come too late. 

If you are fortunate to meet Debi and work with her, be ready for your life and business to change for the better. 

Thank you Debi.

Thank you for the session yesterday, especially the NLP. I wasn’t sure what to expect – I’d heard a lot about Neuro Linguistic Programming but admit I don’t know much about it. I suppose I had expected something around re-framing. Although I’d experienced this technique before using Paul McKenna’s CD, I hadn’t connected it to NLP. I have to say that …your tone and strength of voice and fluency of story were truly brilliant and equally as good as the McKenna CD. Of course, the session was much more powerful than the CD because it was personal to me. I’ve used the anchoring squeeze several times today and will keep it up over the next few weeks. NLP is natural to you…

Debi’s style of coaching and mentoring challenges my thinking, keeps me focused on my goals and makes me feel supported in what I am aiming to achieve in the personal and professional aspects of my life.
Ailsa B – NHS Trust Director

I wanted to tell you about the progress I have made since our last meeting as this has been staggering for me. I’ve tried out the active listening you suggested and this is going really well. I’m finding that I’m picking up on so much more and my inner talk is not going on so much. I’ve also had a fundamental shift in my thinking after realising what factors have been holding me back and reinforcing my low opinion of myself, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted. Two weeks on and I still have a smile on my face that says that’s the old Carolyn gone and the new one is becoming more confident, happier and content by the day. I feel really strongly that coaching is helping me, thank you.
Carolyn – Training Manager

Dear Debi, I am just writing to thank you for all the help you have given me after I had some life coaching sessions. You were able to give me encouragement and ideas to move forward in my life. You enabled me to see clearly what areas I was happy with and what could be improved. My confidence has increased and my stress levels reduced. I smile more and am enjoying life. I know that there will be ups and downs but feel I have the tools to deal with whatever the world throws at me. I thoroughly enjoyed our sessions and know where to come if I feel I need a boost and a bit more support. Thank you again.

The key thing for me was to identify and break down the barriers that prevented me from moving forward in my professional and personal life, reaching my potential and being happy and fulfilled in life. A tall order, but already Debi’s coaching has enabled me to steer a path through a jumble of thoughts and insecurities, order my thinking and focus on realistic plans and targets to achieve my goals. Supported and guided by Debi’s enabling common sense, non-judgemental approach, I have begun to understand more about myself and what motivates me and this in turn has made me feel much stronger and confident of my skills and abilities.
Wendy – Norwich

Debbie, you certainly helped me to see that I was my own limiting factor and encouraged me to start seeing things in a different way; my journey to self-awareness began with you. I would highly recommend your services to anyone needing help with personal and/or professional development.

For the past eight weeks, Debi has offered me her support, guidance and practical advice on a number of issues. I feel listened to, encouraged and now have a much more positive outlook on my life – thank you, Debi.
