Hi, I'm Debbie

I help free-spirited professions to create the Self Employed lives they truly desire- passion filled, time abundant and profitable.  

This depth of success rarely happens overnight!  There are skills to learn, actions to take and life lessons to realise.

​But know that this learning and success is within reach even if you are new to business, have not previously found success and have family responsibilities or health concerns.

With coaching and support you will know the steps to take that are right for you and you can enjoy this creative process.


The Foundations of My Coaching


I champion kindness and acceptance whatever the circumstances.

From making peace with the current situation, we can address both the practical actions to take and the approach that will enable you to access all your inner-wisdom and creativity.

I support you to work at a pace that's right for you, to prioritise your self-care and to fully engage with your passions.



I ask insightful questions and lead you through tried and tested processes to help you define the business and lifestyle you want to create.

When I observe you holding back, avoiding actions or acting in ways that will not move you towards your Vision, I bring this to your attention and help you understand and change these patterns.

When you have realisations, take actions and experience success, I'll be doing my happy dance too!


There are steps to take, in sequence, that will make the process of creating your profitable business smoother.

However, we are all different with our own passions and experiences, and tapping into our inner-wisdom  enables us to make our unique contribution to our communities.

Knowing our 'BIG WHY', the difference we want to bring to the world, keeps us inspired and moving forward until we realise our heart's desires.

My Story

~ After a very conventional career, I first ventured into Self Employed at the age of 30 as a Human Resources Consultant working with small and growing enterprises, it was absolutely the right move for me

~ In the late '90s, I was known as someone who had been on every personal development workshop going- from energy healing to NLP!

~ My first taste of solo independent travel was in Australia.  This was truly liberating for me

~ This sparked retraining, as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language, and an enriching period of travel and exploration

~Whilst on a meditation retreat in Bali, my purpose become clear (at last!) and I began coach training with CoachU (Accredited by the International Coach Federation)

~ I started practising in Bangkok and set up Soul Sanook Life Coaching in 2005, working mainly with international expats

~ Returning to the UK in 2009 wasn't all plain sailing. I adapted by focusing on Self Employment and moving my business on-line.

~ At the end of 2019, I launched  my Ignite Your Vision Challenge and Self Employment Adventurers' Club to complement my one-to-one coaching.

~ I live in the wonderfully creative community of St Leonards on Sea. (Many of the photos I post are of our wonderful seascape.)

Debbie has been my coach for many years!  Each time she comes into my life and surprises me by identifying that exact next step that I have to take.  She is a fantastic listener.  Kind, generous in her guidance and very professional.


Debbie's ability to get to the heart of the matter and articulate it in the most supportive way is extraordinary.  She has a talent for seeing through what is holding back or blocking change and growth and, what is more, the creativity to forge a way beyond it.  All this she does with warmth, humour and formidable tenacity.  The depth of her experience shines through when one works with her.


I was stuck, both in my personal and professional life, and I didn't know how to move forward.  Debbie helped me reignite my passions, to focus on my strengths and organise problem solving solutions that have given me back my enthusiasm!  I whole heartedly recommend her coaching sessions for anyone who wants to better their lives.
