Zest For Life

A Natural, Holistic Approach to Wellness

Personal Development

Sometimes there just doesn’t seem a way through life’s problems, or recognise you need help. It can also be frustrating planning a new future but not knowing how to start!

I am a qualified Holistic Life Coach and offer personal one-to-one coaching, tailored to your needs. I also offer in-depth personal growth and development with my Living A Balanced Life program.

Holistic Living Counselling

As an experienced Holistic Life Coach and Counsellor for more than 15 years, I’ve helped clients from many walks of life deal with anxiety, grief, relationship stress, addiction and even sleep or weight issues.

Holistic Coaching and Counselling is a safe, empowering and positive way of managing and dealing with life’s challenges to achieve contentment and focus.

Supporting Business

Businesses are recognising the need to support their staff in a variety of ways that provide opportunities for personal growth and professional development.

I offer three, fully customisable courses, for businesses and staff focusing on Mindfulness at Work, Goal Setting and Overcoming Hurry Sickness designed to equip your staff with the tools to be more productive, less stressed and lead more balanced lives.

Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic Massage is a way to stimulate, relax or rejuvenate the body. By assessing your needs I use different techniques to suit how you feel.

I practice traditional Swedish Massage which can involve relaxing the body or deep tissue to focus on particular areas.

Mindfulness Meditation

Meditation is a powerful tool to relax, putting your mind at rest, and refreshing your body. After a Meditation, you will have a fresh perspective on life and be better prepared to face new challenges.

I offer Mindfulness Meditation classes on a regular basis. Sessions are available in groups or one-on-one in complete privacy.

Reiki Healing & Teaching

I love introducing clients to the world of Reiki. Reiki heals on all levels – physically, mentally and spiritually, and harnesses one’s own energy to heal or relax in a very gentle, powerful and effective way.

I am a qualified Reiki Master and Teacher and have been teaching and attuning clients to Reiki for more than 20 years. If you’d like a Reiki healing treatment or interested in learning the art of Reiki, I can help.

About Deborah

I am passionate about Natural Therapies to help solve life’s everyday challenges. I was drawn to explore Natural Therapies after a particularly difficult period of my life in the 1990’s.

After trying many western techniques, including diet, physical exercise and accepted medicine of the day, I applied the techniques I learned in natural, holistic healing and found these had a far greater, positive and enduring impact on me.  

I was inspired to use my learnings to help others overcome pain – be it physical, emotional and mental – and build better ways of living. I have successfully run my business, Zest for Life, since 2000.

Every situation is different and as a Holistic Practitioner I apply a range of techniques to suit: Life Coaching, Counselling, energy work with Reiki and Meditation, or Therapeutic Massage are all part of the Holistic Toolbox that can be applied separately or together to make a real difference.

Holistic practices are coming of age and broader acceptance in western culture, having found their place along with modern and safe strategies with the likes of a balanced diet and plenty of physical exercise and sleep, which together help support a meaningful and fulfilling life.

I work both one-on-one at my studio (or remotely on request), and with business clients at their place of work, who see the growing value of supporting their staff to reduce stress with targeted courses that develop mindfulness and goal setting techniques, as well as helping the “disconnect” by removing reliance on devices and reduce the sense of constant “busy-ness” that many of us feel.

There is no “one simple process” to reach resolution or solve a problem – I tailor each interaction based on need and a simple diagnostic approach to help develop long lasting, positive change for good.   

My qualifications include;

  • Holistic Living Meditation teacher (2001)
  • Dip Holistic Living Counselling (2001)
  • Life Coach (2002)
  • Reiki Master & Teacher (2000)
  • Therapeutic Relaxation Massage Therapist (2000)

Success Stories

Deborah provided a safe, non-judgmental place for me to explore my feelings and thoughts.
She helped me calm the inner turmoil and find strength to keep moving forward in a very difficult time in my life.

I experienced very real, long term results and 100% recommend working with her. Kirsten

Things are going along nicely and I’ve really benefited from your support and recommendations with Holistic Living Counselling and Life Coaching. I feel much more present and mindful, and just more positive in general.

Thankyou so much for all your support and advice. Michelle P

My name is Jen T, and I saw you for a number of sessions 2 years ago when I was pregnant with my second child, I had one on one sessions as I wanted to learn basic mindfulness meditation techniques and de-stress and reduce anxiety. What I took away from those sessions has been absolutely invaluable. When I saw you everything was falling apart! My new found ability to substantially manage my emotions has led me to get some perspective on aspects of my life. I meditate daily and have learnt to slow down. Thanks again – you really were the turning point in my life. Jen T
