Hi, I’m Debi, Certified life & Business mindset coach, NLP master practitioner and mindfulness facilitator.
I'm also the founder of women’s Confidence programme 'She Who Dares Shines' - A Transformational 12-week online Group Confidence Programme for Women. https://mailchi.mp/debihaden/she-who-dares-shines
I support people to overcome limiting beliefs, build self-esteem & confidence & achieve things they never thought possible!
Whether in life or in business everyone needs a little help from time to time, I consider it a real strength when people say 'I need help!'.
You may be struggling to identify what needs to change, or how to even begin to bring about change so that you can feel fulfilled, and generally enjoy life and find your version of happiness. You just know that you dont want to stay stuck any longer and want more, am I right?
Clients come to me for all sorts of underlying reasons but ultimately what everyone has in common is the desire to improve an aspect of their life and be happy. My role is to work with them to achieve a positive solution and move forward towards the life they desire.
Feeling overwhelmed, unfulfilled, frustrated and unfocused are not uncommon and are surprisingly difficult to address on your own. This is where I can help. With over 30 years experience of working with people from all walks of life both personally and professionally, I've been able to empower people to think differently and create the right mindset to make the necessary positive changes to create a better and more satisfying life.
Areas of coaching I work with (these are just examples as everyone's issues are unique to them!)
Developing greater confidence & self-esteem
strategies for managing anxiety & depression
Creating more energy, motivation and focus
Overcoming phobias and fears
Dealing with past trauma
Ongoing support through personal crisis
Relationship and couples difficulties
Understanding and overcoming Food issues
Gaining greater body confidence
Improving Health & wellbeing
Develop strategies for managing stress
Creating a better work/life balance
Support to change career
Working towards long-held goals and dreams
Setting up a business
Growing and developing a small business
Developing confidence as a business owner
I work on a one-to-one and group basis. By combining traditional face-to-face or telephone consultations with the latest Internet technology such as video calls using Skype, Zoom or FaceTime I can provide the very best and most convenient support to my clients and work with people all over the world
I provide flexible timed support to fit in with your requirements, lifestyle and time zone. Home or office visits can also be catered for.
I believe with a positive mindset you can achieve everything and anything you want if you are prepared to put the effort it to make it happen. I work with my clients to achieve their wants, hopes, goals, dreams and desires!
I will provide you with the tools and strategies to eliminate your limiting beliefs and fears, unlock your potential, and empower you to make effective and long term life changes.
We will work together to ensure we rid you of those negative patterns of behaviour that have been holding you back, and create new positive habits to make sure you achieve your goals and live the life you desire.
Like many people I have faced my own life challenges, but I know that I would not be the person I am and be able to support others in the way that I do without these life experiences.
I consider it to be a real privilege to be part of the development journey and I love to watch my clients change and grow in confidence as they journey towards achieving their goals and dreams!

'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 an 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.'

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Debi to anyone who feels a bit stuck in their lives and is looking for a safe space in which to openly discuss their feelings/troubles/issues and work through opportunities. Debi has a lovely aura which just draws people to her. She listens, guides and supports in a non-judgmental way. I’m not exaggerating when I say that she helped me re-set and re-charge after a fairly turbulent period of change. I feel reinvigorated, refreshed and focussed in a way I never imagined was possible just a short time ago. Thank you for everything!

Debi helped me when I was struggling at work – her ability to guide me through my conflicting and stressful thought patterns were the catalyst I needed to ultimately give me the belief in myself to set my own business up. Debi has a warmth and sensitivity which is second to none. I would recommend Debi to anyone.

Through my own experiences, I hope to motivate and inspire others to overcome their own challenges, help them to put their brave pants on and create the life they want to have!
I believe life is one great journey and we all go through it in our own way. My role as your coach is to assist you on yours, helping you to gain clarity in any aspect of your life and work towards making a positive change whether it be a goal you want to achieve, a new positive habit you want to create or a life-change you want to make.
I look forward to starting the next part of your journey with you and can’t wait to see where it takes you!
Back earlier this year, I reached out to Debi after a recommendation from a friend. I was looking for some mind coaching to help with some personal development and after an initial consultation, I knew Debi was going to be great to work with. She made it very clear from the start the process I was going to be going through and what was required and I ended up having weekly sessions. I cannot believe how much it has changed my life and how i've now developed a more positive and stress-free way of thinking when encountering different life scenarios.I fully recommend Debi's services and she has been a massive help to me and my future.

Debi has a great ability to draw out how you are feeling in a professional and confidential manner. She is empathetic and warm and gets straight to the heart of the matter. A one hour session with Debi gave me a clearer head and a short list of achievable next steps and helped me deal more realistically with a difficult emotional issue too. More...

When I started working with Debi I was uncertain as to which direction to take in my career and my life. By the end of my sessions I had a clear vision and action plan. Although my direction was not what I had foreseen at the start; the path I am now undertaking is one I am much happier with. Debi also supported me to see how focusing on myself meant I was then strong to support others around me. I wholly recommend Debi as a coach. More...
Debi coached me at a time of organisational change. This coincided with me studying my coaching qualification, so there was lots to explore! I loved Debi's thought provoking questions, the challenges she set and the different ideas that evolved. Thank you Debi, it's been a great journey. More...
Debi gave a talk to a business group that I attend. I was very impressed by her warmth, passion and knowledge for her subject as well as her experience. I would not have any hesitation in recommending her services. More...
I can't recommend Debi enough. She's lovely, so easy to talk to and has given me a whole new attitude to life. I'm not constantly hanging on to bad experiences from my past, but looking forward to new experiences in the future instead! Before our sessions, I didn't realise just how much the negative feelings from my past were holding me back. My confidence was really low and I'd become nervous of certain social situations, felt stuck in a rut professionally and I wouldn't even wear colour for fear of standing out too much. Debi has helped me let go of the feelings that were making me put myself down all the time and I have my confidence back - I'm wearing a bright yellow jumper today!Although it sounds like a cliché, I feel like a new person, take much more care of myself and I can't believe I held myself back for so long! I'm healthier and happier than I've been in years but also have a completely different attitude to how others see me. I don't think I ever would have been this confident and happy again without Debi's help - thank you! More...
Thoroughly recommended. Debi is friendly, approachable and always provides practical suggestions to help with the situation.

Debi's enthusiastic coaching style is encouraging, motivating and up-lifting. A professional, solutions-focused coach who I highly recommend.
Debi is inspirational, encouraging, helps you to focus on what is important for you, helping you to keep it real in achieving your goals.
Debi was great running the mindfulness session. She gave me ideas on how I can use this in the future. Debi made me feel very relaxed and able to really concentrate on one thing not allowing my thoughts to wander. Brilliant, thanks Debi.
Debi is an excelent professional who really cares in giving the right support to her clients. She is sensible, strong to her beliefs and with a profound sense of ethics and with a remarkable set of core values. Beautiful smile backed-up by a wonderful heart. I'm grateful to have worked with her :-). Highly recommended!! More...
I've known Debi now for about 10 years. She has always been a thoughtful caring person and always has time for you. She helped me with my public speaking when I first started out and since then I have built on it, I regularly present at board level and don't have a problem addressing large rooms of people. Debi is great to work with and I thoroughly recommend her. More...
Debi has a brilliant way of listening that makes you pour out more than you thought, which in turn means she can help with more than you thought was the issue. She's great helping with personal stuff as well as business coaching. More...

This is difficult knowing where to start but I've been, and still am, having issues around relationships. I got stuck in a cycle of repeating the same mistakes, becoming frustrated and overwhelmed, trying to keep everyone happy and ultimately causing unhappiness and unrest, including my own.
I felt like the inside of a golf ball, all knotted up, no beginning and no end and unable to move or breath.
I've talked a lot with Debi, which is easy, she doesn't judge, creates time and space and understanding, and I really feel heard. I wonder if anyone truly appreciates the value of that? I know I do, not just the relief of being listened to and understood but learning about myself in the process.
I did and do need more though, it's not always convenient to offload when the need arises. Debi worked through some 'exercises' with me, which up until that point, I had been a little dismissive about but I felt I had nothing to lose.
Unbelievably after the first session there was a marked difference. It didn't become apparent until a few days later when I was in a position where my feelings would normally get the better of me.
I was quite astonished actually. I felt stronger and more in charge of myself. I was also calmer and didn't suffer the heart pounding physical reactions to the same degree.
In short, it has given me hope, I can make a difference for myself and therefore the loved ones around me. It can be built on and taken forward.
I can honestly say I wouldn't be standing where I am now, with a long way to go, but with hope and a renewed faith in myself if it hadn't been for Debi.
This is what she does and what she can do for you. More...
I have known Debi for over 35 years. Over this time I have watched her develop her natural ability to instil positivity and encourage confidence in people. She has gathered huge amounts of information on all aspects of human development and she has a way of being able to transfer her positive energy to others whilst maintaining empathy and giving help and support. I have absolutely no doubt in recommending Debi to others and I wish her continuing success in her work. More...
Debi is hugely experienced and very approachable, kind, thoughtful and very good at what she does. I went to her recent Mindfulness Day and it was wonderful. I highly recommend you speak to Debi if you're not feeling yourself (whatever form that takes) and if you can get along to one of her events, do so More...
I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done since we met early this year. From the moment we spoke I knew that the Universe was right in putting you on my track.
As you know, I have long suffered with anxiety and depression and found really hard to move forward in life, with personal and professional goals always being left behind because of the fear of not being “good enough”. So we had a chat and from that moment I knew something needed to change.
I participated on your Mindfulness workshop last June, which has been tremendously helpful for my every day being. Since then, I always approach things with more care. Although the anxiety still kicks in from time to time, knowing that the feeling will go away once I practiced what I learn, it is just magical!
More recently, we worked on my big fear of water. I was truly fed up of going on endless holidays and not being able to enjoy being near anything that remotely related to water: boats, canoes, swimming pools… So, after 2 sessions with you (one on firm terrain, nowhere near water, and another inside a swimming pool), I can truly say that my fear of water has vanished and I have since enjoyed family time with my loved ones, surrounding myself with water!
Since getting rid of my phobia, my personal life has changed a bit. I am more assertive and less worried about what will or won’t happen. I focus on the task ahead. I have also moved my business forward and feel more positive about it. My ideas have gone from paper to fruition – and I can honestly say that in my 46 years of existence, I have never ever experienced something quite big like that. Somehow, everything seems easy and, of course, bar the few negative thoughts that come and go sometimes, I am a truly happy lady.
Thank you will never be enough to show the gratitude for you to have appeared into my life at the time you did. They say that timing is everything. And I truly believe that! xx More...
From the minute you enter Holly House, you are met with a warm welcome and sense of ease. Debi is wholly professional and immensely informative and supportive. All resources and amenities are thoroughly thought out. I already can’t wait to attend the next meeting. More...
I've been lucky enough to be a recipient of not only Debi's expertise but also her patience and kindness, and encouragement .
I had hit rock bottom and needed to change but didn't have the skills . If you want your life back.. If you want "you" back , maybe come to a meeting !! Bit scary walking through the door first time but so worth it .
The chance to say your thoughts out loud without fear of judgment or recrimination is really powerful, as is realising you're not alone.
My friends and family have noticed the positive changes in me , more importantly so have i . More...
I have been attending Debbie’s Wellbeing meetings in North Walsham. I can honestly say that I have found them to be of great help to me. Lots of us take care of our physical well-being but neglect our mind and spirit. The classes are intimate, confidential and extremely supportive. We look at various ways to self help and to promote a positive attitude. It takes a lot of courage to take the first step but from personal experience (and being the only male in the group) you have nothing to worry about. You will benefit from the group experience. Give it a try. More...
Debi ran a brilliant mindfulness session, I felt very relaxed and really enjoyed the mix of practical advice, personal experience and practice, thank you.
Debi has an innate ability to instil positivity, encourage confidence, and to find out the truth behind your concerns. I thought I had known her for a lifetime after only being with her for 30 minutes. Professional with the highest standards of integrity. More...
Thank you for an inspiring day on your Mindfulness for Wellbeing Workshop. I really valued the opportunity to be still, away from my busy schedule and to have the headspace to think and reflect about where I am in my life and what I would like to focus on in the future.
Your warm, non-judgemental and informative approach instantly made me feel relaxed and it created a safe atmosphere in the group where people felt able to open-up and share their experiences.
Your step by step approach to understanding anxiety and the thought processes that drive it combined with mindfulness strategies for dealing with negative thoughts was very easy to follow and hugely insightful.
As a result of my day with you I feel empowered to challenge some of my negative thought processes and think about the changes I want to make.
I would really recommend Debi’s workshop to anyone who is grappling with any issues in their life such as stress, anxiety or adjusting to change. The workshop was a great reminder of the need to ‘check-in’ with ourselves on a daily basis. More...
I first met Debi at one of her Mindfulness workshops and instantly felt at ease. I have since been seeing her on a one to one basis and can honestly say that she is one of the most genuine, caring people I have had the pleasure of knowing. Debi has the ability to create a safe, supportive environment allowing the client to explore what need to be addressed. She always has the time to listen, is incredibly intuitive but challenges me in a very positive way. I always feel like an individual, rather than just another client and would like to say a huge thank you to a very special lady X More...
This woman is amazing, she has helped me in ways that I didn't know I needed. Highly recommended!
Debi offers professional and caring support. I have used Debi on a number of occasions for both business and personal coaching and she has enabled me and my company to grow and navigate some tough times.
A simply wonderful person, full of knowledge and understanding. The rare ability to be able to listen, and offer the right advice, for the right reasons. Honest, reliable and a genuinely lovely human being. More...

I had quite a major phobia of public speaking, the thought left me a nervous wreck. There was a year when I started a new job and I had to present to the whole company, and also that same year I was getting married - even the thought of saying my vows in front of family and friends gave me sweaty hands, sleepless nights, shakes and heart palpitations. .. then along came Debi. Instantly such a warm and friendly lady who put me at ease. The session was relaxing but also I could feel the benefits instantly. I still had some nerves at the company presentation - that’s natural but no way the same amount of nerves that I would have had, had I not see Debi. Most importantly was my wedding day... I actually enjoyed the moment (walking down the aisle, saying my vows) so much and I was rather relaxed. I even gave an impromptu speech during dinner (granted I had a couple of wines at that point) but I never would have done that in a million years and for that I thank you so so much Debi - such a wonderful woman x More...

Debi is one of the most caring and understanding people I have ever met. She has a certain way of getting to know you without being intrusive and can make you feel at ease from the first smile. She has a wealth of experience of working with people who just need that little bit of help to aid them on their journey. A sort of human compass that can lead people back in the right direction. If you're thinking of a life coach then Debi is a first class choice. More...
Debi has such empathy and understanding of personal and professional issues. Debi is really interested in helping and listens to any issue, she always seems to find the underlying truth and cause behind the things that concern you. A vast range of treatment methods always leaves you feeling better about the situation, given time, anything is possible. I thoroughly recommend her services. More...
A truly inspirational woman that deserves all the praise she gets.
