Customer Reviews

  • from Vicki, Sydney, NSW on 26 May 2014

    I liked that you were professional, friendly, flexible, caring and promoted trust. Ability to trust what was discussed would remain confidential. You assisted me to look at what worked for me and identify triggers and how to approach different situations and find positive resolutions that were achievable. I gained different ways to look at problems, changing the way I approached a problem. I most valued trust – it allowed me to be honest, and the professionalism.

    My position was regraded and I needed to reapply for my job. I don't mind conducting interviews but hate being interviewed. There is always a question that throws me off track and when it happens I freeze and the rest of the interview is a mess. Luckily I had been receiving coaching from Deb so decided to tackle this problem during coaching sessions. She helped me connect with the 'why' it happened and helped me put strategies in place to be able to access the information when I needed it. She helped me find a space where I felt calm, confident and ready for anything. It’s a strategy I’m using now in numerous situations with success -and yes I got the job - thanks Deb!

    Just wonderful! Deb enabled me to look at leadership and people from all angles.

    Dear Deb
    Thank you for this journey. Ultimately, these are some key victories from our discussions. 1. I’ve come to the source of my depressions, and been able to see past the symptoms to the key fact that I didn’t feel worthy. I realise now I am worthy. 2. You helped me acknowledge pain and mistrust that I thought I had dealt with, in a new light. My past, you’ve helped me see the positive way its moulded who I am, while I could only see it as a negative experience. 3. Thank you for asking the hard questions. That make me think about who I am, what values I hold dear, and how I live my life accordingly. I feel a reconnection with those values which brings an indescribable peace.
    At the end of our conversations I have always felt uplifted and able to take my new found knowledge forward. And even when I’ve felt the pull back into myself, I appreciate your persistence to see me through it. Even at the very end, I felt some things just t ‘click’ and receiving encouraging words from yourself, and those who love me, and who can see a difference, is truly amazing, so thank you.
    Thanks again and take care.

    I thoroughly recommend Debra’s professional coaching. I trust her completely and can vouch for her professionalism and wonderful skills in professional coaching. Debra gently but surely, in a non-confronting way, helps you move to achieve your goals. She enables you to recognise your attributes, your skills and your thinking and behaviour patterns and helps you move forward. Thank you Deb.

    The coaching sessions provided me with time and space that was both confidential and highly professional. During the sessions I frequently went into my subconscious mind that allowed me to discover answers about my leadership and the path to take to grow and develop into the leader I wanted to be… I thoroughly recommend coaching by Deb Pittam!
