Let me ask you a question – would you go to any dentist in any town for your routine check-up? Are you happy to go to any hairdresser who has an appointment? The answer will be no! – we do business with those we like, know, and trust!
As customers we want to know if we can ‘like, know, and trust’ the companies we buy from, so in this series we ask the person behind some of my favourite natural and organic companies to step out into the spotlight.
It’s the turn of Deborah McPhilemy
Tell us about yourself and your company…
I am a Relationship Empowerment Author, Speaker and Entrepreneur. My focus is on helping people to have, or create, relationships they love. I’m all about being authentic and self-empowered.
My business revolves around empowering others with the knowledge to understand each other to improve their relationships; and the tools and skills to resolve, or avoid, relationship conflicts.
I am particularly interested in helping people to have great relationships with themselves, to accept and embrace who they are so that they can accept and embrace others for who they are. I’m holistic in my approach and therefore always include mind, body, soul and spirit.
I believe that if children are taught emotional intelligence, about human behaviour and relationships, and given life coping skills from foundation age, that a lot of problems we have as a society would be eradicated; e.g. intolerance, judgement, discrimination, bullying, abuse, depression, dependency on drugs and doctors, etc.
How did you get started?
When I discovered in 1998, after 7 very long years of suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, that I could heal my own body (by changing my diet) in spite of what the doctors said, I became conscious and passionate, and obsessed with being self-empowered.
Five years later I did it again when I healed my body from Fybromyalgia by doing shadow work, resolving my emotional issues and tapping into mind power.
What were you doing in a previous life?
So much… I worked as a secretary, a personal assistant, as an office manager, an admin manager and in sales. Lots of office based jobs and then I was introduced to Emotional Intelligence and it changed my life so much that I felt compelled to share it and became one of the very first trainers and coaches specialising in Emotional Intelligence.
Why natural / organic / sustainable?
I believe in being 100% authentic, that when you listen to your own inner voice, not only will you find the answers you are looking for but it will lead you to finding your purpose. Living your life in line with your purpose brings immense personal happiness, joy and fulfillment and is the source of your abundance, financial and otherwise.
What’s your USP? What sets you apart from your competitors?
I have a deep and unique understanding of human behaviour and relationships. I can very quickly pinpoint and identify problems within relationships and provide solutions to help people to change their perspectives so that they can turn it around. My ability is in line with Wayne Dyer’s teaching –‘change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change’ and comes from a combination of my knowledge and my intuition.
I empower individuals and families with knowledge and skills from a holistic approach, always encompassing mind, body, soul and spirit. I have developed a blueprint, a system that anyone can use to improve or turn their relationships around, if they so desire. It’s called my 7 Selfie System. My 7 Selfie System not only helps to turn relationships around, it builds relationships up and can be taught to anyone from 4 to 94 years old!
What kind of feedback you have received from clients?
I’ve fondly been called a baby and child whisper, a ‘Mystic Meg’, the ‘I can girl’. My clients are always astounded at my ability to instantly understand them and their behaviour, and ‘see’ what’s going on. To cut through all the BS and help them to resolve their relationship conflicts. I am very intuitive and when helping someone I am able to sense and feel what is going on. When I get stuck, I tap into spirit to ask for solutions that are relevant right then and there for that person.
I asked my business partner, what she thought makes me unique, this was her response:
I am always so impressed with your ease, confidence, your knowledge and how clearly you explain things. No rehearsal, like the time you spoke on the radio from your mobile, perfect, precise, clearly explained, carefully delivered. You are a brilliant communicator. You always listen, you have a presence that puts people at ease, along with a great smile.
What’s the next big launch / project coming up for you?
My fun and innovative online course ‘7 Selfies that make ALL your relationships GREAT!’
What’s your big dream?
That millions of children around the world will be empowered with life coping skills that will eradicate bullying, abuse and violence from their future.
