Q -Why work with us?

A – Your social media planning and posting is continually falling to the bottom of your to-do list

Even though you know the value of a consistent social media presence, there could be a few reasons for this:

  • You don’t have the time to plan or post to your social media channels
  • You do have the time, but there are 101 other things you would rather do instead
  • You don’t like writing content for social media post  

 I would also have accepted the following answer :


A – because we love planning and writing social media content for coaches and therapists.


Who am I? – Deborah (Founder)

After being made redundant in 2016, I decided to strike out on my own and provide my business support skills on a freelance basis. Setting up a business from scratch was certainly a steep learning curve, and my business has evolved over the years. Underpinning everything was my own personal development journey, and the realisation that no-one can do it all on their own.

I run my own home single-handedly and I’m a mum to a teenager, so I’m used to prioritising, juggling (not literally), delegating and keeping things ship-shape and running efficiently. I’m certainly up for most challenges.

Business-wise, I have over 25 years of experience in a variety of sectors, including a busy transport office,  a counselling service, a children’s services provider and the country’s biggest multi-disciplinary Expert Witness service. I’ve worked with numerous types of business as a Virtual Assistant, Project Manager and Social Media Manager. I’m now concentrating on supporting those that support others – coaches, therapists and counsellors. 

Little-known fact – I used to have a fork-lift truck license.

When I’m not busy keeping things on an even keel at work and at home, I enjoy losing myself in anything medieval (books, films, castles), bribing myself to run a few times a week and learning new stuff. I’m a qualified Mindfulness Practitioner and am currently training as a CBT Practitioner, as part of my own ongoing personal development.

Providing Time to Focus - Putting Plans into Action - Promoting Growth

I was introduced to Deborah through a mutual friend and was immediately impressed by her can-do attitude and professionalism, both over Skype and in-person.

Deborah took it upon herself to understand the bigger picture relating to my business as well as the individual research task I assigned to her. Deborah diligently completed the extensive research for me which was both in line with the brief and returned in an easy-to-read format, well within the timeframe set. This meant that Deborah drew on her own experience in project management and was able to add value with finesse and ease.

I would happily work with Deborah again and know she will remain a true asset to all clients she goes on to support.
