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.
Well, the day finally arrived to face head on one of my biggest fears whilst fulfilling my charge to experience something new. My fear: Heights. My new experience: Standing on a glass floor nearly 300 metres above the ground on “The Edge” at the Eureka Skydeck.
This week’s new experience is one that I was very excited about – attending an ANZAC Day Dawn Service. Though I used to have a job that had me awake at 4am each morning, I have never been to a Dawn Service from memory, and definitely have not attended one in Melbourne.Read More
Since getting married six-and-a-half years ago, my husband and I have been big fans of marriage and have been deliberate to keep the spark alive. One way that we do this is with regular date nights together. Since Tyson was born, we have been a little slack on making special time for dates outside the home, though we make time every week to have dates at home after Tyson’s gone to bed.
This is the big week – the week I face the first of my most feared challenges. The 1000 steps have been beckoning since I decided to do a new adventure every week. I’ve heard of it, had friends do it and have even been invited to do it before. And Sunday was the day that I would finally face it head on.
Some weeks are busier than others and getting an opportunity to do something amazing and new can be quite difficult. However, as a mother, sometimes those natural opportunities present themselves. That’s what happened this week as I visited for the first time Ringwood Lake Park.
