It is very beautiful the way you teach, all the wisdom that you have, your experience, your clarity, your sense of humor, how you create the dance floor as a sacred space and how you look after every dancer.
— Laura Benitez Geminez, Bare Bones, Malaga
I deeply enjoyed the weekend: it opened me in many ways and softened those crunchy bits inside that were ready to melt… SO much gratitude for being part of the FIELD and aligning with its pulse!
— Valeria Alberigo, Field of Love, Findhorn
Thank you for another deep and wonderfully healing and nurturing (individual) session. The words that you say, too, are like these gentle yet razor sharp insights. … Today’s session served me so very well.
— Samar Habibi, Individual & Skype Sessions
Field of love for me is being willing to suspend judgements of myself or others, whether collectively presumably right or definitely wrong. It’s about knowing and choosing what’s important to me. It’s about being the change and engaging in expansive, heart opening dialog conversations.
— Ramona Kleespies, Field of Love, Bellingham
My personal experience of Deborah is that she is a master teacher; insightful, curious, compassionate, humorous, grounded and most importantly, fully, delightfully and humbly human.
— Natasha Frost, Embracing Change, London
I’ve worked with Deborah a lot in groups, but spending private time with her remains precious to me as the work done during that time has informed who i am today. And i am deeply grateful for that. If you’re looking for a Soul to Soul connection that is going to be a catalyzer for a transformational experience, then “Just Me” retreats with Deborah in amazing Findhorn is one of the best things you can offer yourself.

I attended Deborah’s Embracing Change workshop a few weeks ago and it was exactly what I needed. Deborah skilfully moved us through the internal chaos that can accompany change to a place where we could tap into our resources, a great help with facing change and with everyday challenges. Her gentleness and grounded presence made this journey so much easier. I would certainly recommend her work. Go for it!
— Imraan Ismail, Embracing Change, London
Essentially, I have been deepened and reawakened into a bright loving wholeness beyond words.
— Julie, Barcelona
The workshop was energetically clean and done in beauty.
— Martin Julich, Coming To Your Senses, Findhorn
I know Deborah as a woman with the ability to connect with the person she works in a soft and deep way. She gives enough time to build up trust and supports in difficult inquiries. But what is the most important thing for me – she does that with a deep love.
— Jule Barrett
With Deborah’s warm hearted guidance and support, I was able to explore, with curiosity and trust, different aspects of myself. It was such a pleasure being in the presence of supportive, courageous, inquisitive women, sharing this journey together.
— Sarah Farrington, Befriending & Belonging, Findhorn
I noticed a natural, authentic translation between movement inside and movement outside. I welcomed and felt acceptance for movement to come in any form, any rhythm, at any time and experienced fewer distracting thoughts of what I ‘should’ be doing or how I ‘should’ be moving. It felt coherent. My energy felt continuous and fluid which resulted in a deep, constant connection to body, feeling, movement and spirit. If I did start to disconnect I was very aware of it and it was easy to bring my attention back inwards.
— Open Floor Movement Practice Participant
I want to thank you for an incredible weekend. I have never gone to such depth nor experienced such openness… I have renewed respect for what you do.
— Maha Sarraf Shehadeh, Individual & Skype Sessions
Your personal wisdom and refreshing insights coupled with your joyful ability to play is an inspiration. We were in the hands of a master during Embracing Change.
