DEBORAH GERARD, COACH, SURVIVOR
Deborah is a professional life coach whose work is heart centered and values driven. Deborah believes the first step to achieving goals and making sustainable change is to know who you are at your very core—what she calls the authentic self. Deborah supports her clients in re-connecting to their core—their unique greatness—for this is the power source that fuels our lives and gives us the clarity to see and make—and the strength to keep—our commitments to ourselves and the work involved to make change, to achieve success, and to love wholeheartedly. Deborah innately provides a sacred space to do the work where clients feel safe, and know they are seen, heard, and loved unconditionally throughout the coaching process.
Deborah is curious and compassionate by nature and often wants to know more about her clients than they know about themselves. It is from this non-judgmental place of curiosity and compassion that she listens. Deborah uses a thought system that uses the words love and Higher Power (Source, Universe, Spirit, Oneness, God, or Higher Self—whichever name has meaning and holds significance for the client). She is exquisitely attuned to people’s inner lives, and automatically connects to the greatness she sees within each of her clients.
Deborah’s coaching education was brick and mortar, lengthy and rigorous, and ICF accredited; it provided her with a solid understanding of how best to be of service. Deborah complements her superior coaching education with over 25 years of independent study in personal growth, a first career in the performing arts in New York City, and extensive work experience in corporate America.
There are three fundamental anchors to Deborah’s work: Identifying ones’ Essence, identifying ones’ Core Values, and discovering ones’ Purpose. Through her work with client's Deborah has experienced how much easier it is to answer questions, find direction, and live our purpose when we align our lives to these three significant anchors.
Deborah Gerard is a breast cancer survivor, a stand for possibility and a warrior for the human spirit.
