Debra Pascoe is well known as an expert in design, colour, and trends. Her passion has always been to assist others and find elegant solutions for each client. She has worked in and out of the corporate sector, and has acted as director of her own design business, Above Left Pty Ltd for 25 years.
However, following a series of personal tragedies, she has recently shifted her focus to use the creative principals she knows so well to help people in a new way; to modify their patterns and redesign their lives.
the first step in healing is learning to savour something again, allowing joy back into your life. From there finding your deep, often hidden, inner strengths and calling on them. And then building slowly, slowly.
Debra is the author of two books; A Cup of Black Coffee and VIVE! Transform yourself into something amazing. The books offer a positive, no nonsense approach to recovery from loss, offering smart solutions and demonstrating how one can redesign their life. She demonstrates through personal experiences how it can be done, that it IS possible!
Through life stories and experiences, Debra authentically shares how to move forward following tragedy, and learn to live again.
Debra offers live online courses, self-guided courses and 1:1 mentoring. She has literally designed everything from carpet to cars, travelling the world to do so, while juggling being a mum. One great leader she worked closely with, Roger Milliken, was known for saying “There is Dignity in Work”, which has become a personal mantra.
Now she wants to work with people to find a new way to live after tragergy. She gets loss. She gets grief. She gets recovery, and how to feel good about yourself again.
