Essential Holistic Living

A Natural Approach to Wellness

Personal Development

Sometimes there just doesn’t seem a way though life’s problems, or recognise you need help. It can also be frustrating planning a new future but not knowing how to start!

I am a qualified Holistic Life Coach and offer personal one-to-one coaching, tailored to your needs. I also offer in-depth personal growth and development with Life’s 7 Living Essentials programme, and the Live Well Mastery Personal Growth Programme.

Holistic Living Counselling

As an experienced Holistic Life Coach and Counsellor for more than 15 years, I’ve helped clients from many walks of life deal with anxiety, grief, relationship stress, addiction and even sleep or weight issues.

Holistic Coaching and Counselling is a safe, empowering and positive way of managing and dealing with life’s challenges to achieve contentment and focus.

Reiki Healing & Teaching

I love introducing clients to the world of Reiki. Reiki heals on all levels – physically, mentally and spiritually, and harnesses one’s own energy to heal or relax in a very gentle, powerful and effective way.

I am a qualified Reiki Master and Teacher and have been teaching and attuning clients to Reiki for more than 20 years. If you’d like a Reiki healing treatment or interested in learning the art of Reiki, I can help.

Relaxation Massage

I have practiced Therapeutic Relaxation Massage since 2001 and use traditional Swedish Relaxation Massage techniques to help relax and rejuvenate the body.

My clients enjoy this approach because it focuses on soothing, resting and putting the body and mind at ease.

Mindfulness Meditation

Meditation is a powerful tool to relax, putting your mind at rest, and refreshing your body. After a Meditation, you will have a fresh perspective on life and be better prepared to face new challenges.

I offer Mindfulness Meditation classes on a regular basis. Sessions are available in groups or one-on-one in complete privacy.

About Deborah

Hi. My name is Deborah Lyons, and I am passionate about Natural Therapies to solve life’s everyday challenges.

I was inspired to explore Natural Therapies after a marriage breakdown and suffering severe depression in the mid 1990’s.  Everything I learnt I put into practice and it worked!  It inspired me to use what I have learnt to help others overcome pain – be it physical, mental or emotional – and to live life well, happy and energetically!

I live in Raumati Beach with my 13 year old son, and my partner and his twin girls, after relocating from Invercargill in 2016.

I have successfully run my business, Essential Holistic Living, since 2000, and helped many people in the Southland area find comfort or a new path forward.

Every situation is different and as a Holistic practitioner I apply a range of techniques to suit. Life Coaching, Holistic Living Counselling, energy work with Reiki and Meditation, or Therapeutic Relaxation Massage are all part of the Holistic Toolbox that can be applied separately or together to make a real difference.

I am a qualified Holistic Living Counsellor/Holistic Life Coach and Tutor; and Holistic Living Meditation Teacher, graduating in 2001. I have practiced Reiki since 1994 and became a Reiki Master and Teacher in 2001. I am also a qualified Therapeutic Relaxation Massage Therapist.

I am grateful for a life rich in experience – the ups and the downs – and this drives me to help others overcome whatever difficulties life brings. Everything I share with my clients, I’ve learned through experience and in developing my own skills, which I use every day to support myself and family.

If you’re ready to heal an aspect of your life or searching for the right key to make the changes you have been looking for, I would love to help.

Success Stories

Deborah provided a safe, non-judgmental place for me to explore my feelings and thoughts.
She helped me calm the inner turmoil and find strength to keep moving forward in a very difficult time in my life.

I experienced very real, long term results and 100% recommend working with her.

Kirsten

Things are going along nicely and I’ve really benefited from your support and recommendations with Holistic Living Counselling and Life Coaching. I feel much more present and mindful, and just more positive in general.

Thankyou so much for all your support and advice.

My name is Jen T, and I saw you for a number of sessions 2 years ago when I was pregnant with my second child, I had one on one sessions as I wanted to learn basic mindfulness meditation techniques and de-stress and reduce anxiety. What I took away from those sessions has been absolutely invaluable. When I saw you everything was falling apart! My new found ability to substantially manage my emotions has led me to get some perspective on aspects of my life. I meditate daily and have learnt to slow down. Thanks again – you really were the turning point in my life.
