How it Works

At each 45 minute session you will have the chance to discuss current issues around health and well-being, career/academic pursuits, personal relationships and life purpose. Deborah will use a structured format to keep you on topic, and help you reflect on your current situation.

Group sessions are 75-90 minutes in length and focus on different topics related to life balance, personal strengths, mindfulness and emotional regulation skills.

Team Approach

Deborah may recommend that you receive an additional form of treatment during your coaching relationship. She can refer you to you to see the Naturopathic Doctor, Nutritionist, Occupational Therapist or Social Worker. Deborah will continue to work as part of your team and make sure you understand the role of each practitioner.
