About what I do

Hello I’m Debra Oakaby. I’m very pleased to meet you. The ups and downs of life are many. Real life happens. Hopes and dreams get dashed. Sudden or unexpected change can feel like a whirlwind, turning everything upside down and causing emotional turmoil. How you cope will depend on your resilience.

I specialise in helping people handle personal life changes. I do this because I have experienced several events that changed my own life in some way. These include child loss, serious ill health, near miss burnout and career change.

At the time I didn’t know that my resilience had diminished. I felt cut adrift and didn’t know if I would ever recover my self-esteem. I think this was why I was drawn to personal development in my search for some answers.

I retrained as a Life Coach and coached more than 30 women. And then studied career coaching. The more I learned the more I realised that everything starts in the mind. In view of this I decided to study NLP and later qualified as a practitioner.

I now know that if I had access to the type of service I offer today, I would have bounced back stronger sooner and had more opportunity to realise my full potential.

I’ve learnt that the human spirit is indomitable and a person’s potential is unlimited. When someone is self-motivated they can achieve what they want and overcome obstacles in their way. We all know someone who is like this. The secret is knowing how to tap into this phenomenal power that lies within each of us.

I provide a professional service that’s underpinned with a proven track record of more than 20 years of HR experience working in London. I am naturally curious about what makes people tick. And by finding out more about people and what they need to feel motivated and satisfied, I can tailor resilience building strategies for them.

Let me ask you or someone you know – would you like to switch on something inside of yourself that makes you feel resourceful, powerful and ready for anything that comes your way?

If the answer is yes, then give me a call on 07906 007613 and book your free no obligation consultation.  Alternatively, use the contact form here.
