Outset Cornwall has given me the business tools and knowledge to grow my company from a germ of an idea to a rewarding business.

Debbie’s story

“I was originally a secondary ICT teacher but I became involved in an online retail business for natural and organic skincare in 2005,” she said, “ and although a great learning experience my business skills were all self-taught and there were areas in which I could have benefited from outside help, which I did not seek out.”

Hardworking, passionate about her job, caring, empathetic and supportive, with good listening skills and a strong motivational drive to take her business forward Debbie had the specialist skills to work as a complementary therapist but felt that she did not have enough business ‘know how’ to turn an idea into a successful business.

“Outset Cornwall has given me the business tools and knowledge to grow my company from a germ of an idea to a rewarding business.”

Debbie now uses her specialist complementary therapy skills to tailor one-to-one therapy and coaching sessions to the needs of the individual client.

She combines techniques and tools from hypnosis, NLP, Emotional Freedom Technique and Time Line Therapy to benefit her clients.

She added: “My skills can help people who feel that they need assistance with personal development and life coaching issues to those who are suffering from such debilitating conditions as ME, CFS, Fibromyalgia and IBS.”

Debbie is feeling more confident about business following her participation in Outset Cornwall saying she “enjoyed the programme immensely”.

She pinpointed meeting other new business owners and sharing ideas as being incredibly helpful, while the sessions were “not only very informative but also inspiring”.

Looking to the future Debbie is planning specialist weekend residential retreats to enable her to offer more intensive therapy to clients suffering from depression, ME and CFS.
