With drive and passion, she quit her job and became the first commercial emotional intelligence trainer in South Africa. Deborah made better and more self-care driven choices and this completely change your life.
She soon opened her own practice, became a qualified counselor and began to work with corporates, children and adults in helping them live richer and fuller lives. She also proudly developed programs for schools and educators to help them teach beyond the ABC’s. Realizing that children experience the same emotions as adults but with even less tools to cope was the driving force behind Getting Kids Social Again.
Through learning to understand emotional intelligence, Deborah raised her children using these principles and is proud to say that her two kids are well-adjusted, happy adults who are now raising her remarkable grandchildren. Her absolute goal, purpose and passion is to ensure that her and other children never have to face the life of torment that she did. Deborah is an expert in her field with a career in counselling, training, motivational speaking and writing that spans 18 years and works with an incredible team of like-minded individuals to help make emotional intelligence development accessible to many families across the South Africa.
