What People Are Saying

"I had the opportunity to be a part of a group coaching course led by Debra Alford. After using the tools, I learned some valuable listening exercises. Debra was very gentle in her approach; her exercises were very helpful and to the point.  I will definitely recommend her to anyone I know needing to learn more about how to create or build a solid relationship - because Debra not only gives you the desire to fulfill all the ‘I wills’ but she gives you both the skills to succeed!"

A caring, competent, empathic coach — ready to offer creative solutions grounded in faith but uniquely appropriate to the journey of each client — that is my personal experience of Debra Alford.  Her ready mentorship, informed by her professional education and her deep insight into the human spirit, regularly leads to moments of realization and breakthrough for challenging relationships and difficult life circumstances for her clients. When working with groups, she’s sensitive to the whole room, able to manage and encourage the positive energy and focus of the room, but not afraid to hit pause on a well-timed, well-rehearsed, well-worth-attending program to be sure that individual needs at the moment are being addressed. 

 

She’s kind, encouraging, and one-on-one infuses someone struggling to manage any number of life challenges with confidence — the confidence to respond with integrity to newly created awareness, to dream and plan, and to put goals into action so that something to celebrate is the outcome every time.  I recommend Debra without reservation.

When I first met Debra Alford, I was immediately captivated by her enthusiasm for all that she had to say. She is an exceedingly gifted, compelling speaker. She is transparent and shares her life of what I call rough, tough, and tumble, having experienced many disappointments and many tears in her childhood and early adult life.

Debra's journey has been a triumphant one, a puzzle she has meticulously pieced together, offering us profound and enlightening perspectives along the way. She exemplifies the Joy of the Lord and brings hope to each situation.

I was thoroughly delighted to read her book “Sit Down and Shut Up: Finding Your Voice In An Insensitive World. “I loved the analogy she used of her grandmother sifting flour to remove lumps. We must also carefully sift the words that we speak, as life and death are in the power of our tongue; our words literally prophesy our future.
