Some Independent Reviews

Below is a selection of feedback from my life coaching clients, some life coaching success stories.

“I just wanted to drop you a little email (which knowing me will go on a bit) just to update you on how I’m going. I just feel that if I’d helped someone to make a huge change in their life I’d like to know they are doing well. And I am!”

”So I would just like to say a HUGE thank you for calling me back when no one else would and for genuinely caring. You truly made a difference to my life and I am so glad to have met someone with so much passion for life. It’s truely inspirational, and I can’t wait to find my passion in life soon, and if I don’t then I am going to have fun trying as many things as possible”.

“20 years ago I started to suffer from panic attacks which took over my life. Recently things escalated to the point I could not cope anymore it was suggested that I meet with Debbie and she has changed my life around with therapy which is amazing. With this therapy I struggle to remember what it was like to panic. To me Debbie is a wonderful human being who does what she does to help enrich people’s lives and all of this is done without any thoughts or expectations of accolades. I am so grateful to Debbie she has given me my life back.”

“Hi! Here’s why contacting Debbie should be high on your list of New Year’s resolutions for 2014. We all owe it to more mindful of our own wellbeing and to show self-compassion for a more fulfilled life! Debbie has greatly helped me to do just that.

Having discovered in adulthood that it is very likely that I had suffered since childhood, from until recently treated, Post Traumatic stress syndrome, it has had huge impact on many aspects of my life. I have tried counselling group and individual therapy, CBT etc but none of it “clicked” for me. My emotional intelligence and self-awareness is good, but for the last 16 years I have been asking professionals for a “brain re-boot”. The answer is always the same “Sorry there is no quick fix…..

And then I met Debbie. From our first appointment she put me at ease and I found I was immediately comfortable around her and it was easy to relate to her. Indeed I felt as if she’s been a good friend for years! In finding Debbie I have finally achieved the “re-boot” I’ve been seeking! She has guided me through using the “rewind technique” and IEMT sessions. The best thing has been that I don’t have to “re-live” my experiences to achieve the benefits.

It is easy to feel better about oneself, life and the world around under Debbie’s nurturing care – she is a compassionate listener, a great motivator and believes in me, even when sometimes I don’t believe in myself! Under her guidance I have learnt a lot more about mind-body connections, about how to make sense of much that didn’t make sense before, resilience towards whatever life throws my way and she has led me to a much greater sense of wellbeing and dare I say it, happiness!”

“I had another session with Debbie Banks today, and I feel that she has made an impact on my life TODAY.

My past has never been easy for me, and my chosen jobs have been very stressful and have not helped. However, after this session today I feel much more in control of my emotions, they are not taking over me for a change. I feel that when a difficult emotion arises I don’t get the pain that comes with it, so I can steer away from a thought, and get on with what I’m doing, or meant to be doing.

I have worked all my life and have always pushed myself to my limits, because that’s what made me tick. But after having children, one who has an additional need, I can’t go back to work. This has plagued me for five year, and I have felt immense guilt that I’m not achieving to my full ability.

But now I feel I can say, “What is my full ability”, and now I think about it, it’s very different to what it was five years ago. As I was always working, I had no time to do what I really wanted, and that was to go back to school, well college, and finish what I had tried to start, my education.

So I’m now doing a couple of GCSE’s and I’m amazed to find out I’m an “A Student”. So why wasn’t I like that at school. I think it all comes down to life skills. If no one has ever shown you how to look after yourself, when it’s ok to relax and so on, how would you ever now that you are burning out? So now I know it’s ok to relax, it’s ok to sit down and have a cup of tea, I don’t need to keep beating myself up emotionally. It’s a great feeling and it has changed my life for the better. I’m not the same person I was five years ago, but I’m ok with that, I’m just a better me and that makes me smile :0”

“When I first saw Debbie I was struggling getting to work because of my anxiety levels, which gave me diarrhoea. Every day was a nightmare and I was having occasional accidents which was very distressing. I couldn’t see how I was going to cope and was at my wits’ end.

Our first appointment was not limited to an hour so gave me all the time I needed to start working on my issues. It was such a relief. We used several techniques and I was given tools I could use myself. Over our appointments we have continued developing the techniques which have proved most effective for me and looked at my problems in many different ways. I now don’t have an issue getting to work about 95% of the time (compared to about 10% before).

When I have a set-back I know what to do so that it doesn’t affect me like it used to. I have had a very difficult couple of months with things happening at work and at home, and I can definitely say I have coped much better than I could ever have imagined using the insights and tools I now have.

The techniques I have personally found most useful are heart coherence, matrix re-imprinting, mindfulness and self-compassion. I cannot thank Debbie enough, her breadth of knowledge and support have been transformational.

I would recommend her without hesitation.“
