Phillip Chisholm-DeVeau, CB, ACC
As an entrepreneur and business owner who decided to change direction from Bookkeeping to Coaching and consulting. I needed help with clarity, focus and to get out of my head, which is where I can get stuck. I had relocated my office and moved personally to a different city and was trying to work in both cities and try to figure out how to do that. As I have never been in this situation before. Deborah, provide a space where I could think. I would come with a current issue of where I felt stuck and we would use the session to work through that situation or area of thought. Deborah’s warm disposition and ability to hold space is amazing. She asks very good questions that allow for someone to really ponder on the core issues at hand. It is thought these deep questions one can come to an awareness and answer with confidence. Through working with Deborah, I was able to let go of some fear that was holding me back and realized I took too much on at one time and needed to settle into my new life. Time and some serious reflection were needed. Once I let go of my limits, I placed on myself I was able to regroup and focus on my new business direction. Deborah provided excellent coaching. I would highly recommend anyone who in some type of transition to work with her as she can help you figure out what is best for you. She is encouraging, inspiring, empowering.

I found Deborah and Rise and Shine Life Coaching online and I am so thrilled that I did. Although I did not know much about coaching and its benefits, I decided to jump in after connecting with Deborah. She made my journey a remarkable one. Deborah is very professional, friendly and nurturing. I am not one who typically feels comfortable in one-on-one sessions, however, Deborah immediately helped me feel at ease. Through our sessions and with Deborah’s guidance I learned to articulate my key career and life priorities and to develop a specific and digestible action plan to move forward with. She also helped me stay honest to myself – ensuring that with each session we ended by clearly laying out steps for me to take away and work on. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Deborah and learned a lot about myself in the process. For me coaching is something I will continue to come back as I find it extremely beneficial to my development as a person. I highly recommend Deborah and Rise and Shine Life Coaching for anyone who wants to unlock their potential — in all areas of life.
