Depressed? Dealing with a brain injury? Let's talk.Are you dealing with depression, anxiety, recovering from a brain injury, or going through a particularly tough emotional time and want somebody to support you, help you find your way, and show you how to put your brain to work for you?

Been there. Done that.

I can help.

Let’s talk.

I recovered from decades of depression and a suicide attempt, resulting in a serious brain injury. (Read the full story here.) In the years that followed, I  learned everything I could about how your life and mind change your brain, neuroplasticity. I put the information to good use in rebuilding my own brain and life.

You know what? It worked.

More than ten years later, I’ve gone from being over-reactive, depressed, and fearing the future to an existence where I’m content and peaceful with a bold curiosity about what’s ahead and an unshakable sense of trust in myself – on most days. 😉

If I can do it, you can too. We can get there together.

I am available to coach you via email or online video.

Let me be very clear, I’m not a certified mental health professional. There are plenty of good ones out there, offering services in person or online, which can and do help tremendously and I highly recommend.

I’m offering peer support coaching from someone who knows from personal experience. Someone who has lived through hell and fought her way back.

I get countless emails from people who visit my website or read my books and seek advice on everything from relationships and how to quit being a people pleaser to depression/anxiety and brain injury recovery. I’ve worked step-by-step with people to yield positive results.

I highly recommend Debbie’s email coaching. It has been a real lifeline for me in dealing with chronic pain and anxiety. It is a great form of coaching because it is so flexible and as and when problems arise I find I have help very quickly rather than having to wait for the next session. 
Not only is Debbie hugely knowledgable about ways to change the brain but she has also healed herself using the methods she teaches others and this authenticity shines through. She provides guidance and genuine support and with her assistance I have been learning ways to actually change my brain and her constant encouragement is helping me to stick to them.
Her emails include not just advice, ideas and tips on neuroplasticity but she also provides many other resources to look into.
This is a wonderful form of coaching for anyone wanting to embark on a healing journey and needing guidance and support and Debbie is a great coach.

I suffered from anxiety and depression since childhood and remained in and out of therapy for a long time until i discovered Debbie Hampton’s blog and got to know about how anxiety is created in the brain and what i can do to heal myself. Debbie provided me immense support through emails as i could write to her anytime and she was always there to guide me. I incorporated the changes she advised in my lifestyle including diet, exercise, meditation etc which led me to become better day by day. Her coaching has helped me very much. I would recommend her as a life coach to anyone on a self healing journey.

I would also suggest that you consider one of my books.  Both are self-help, inspirational, teaching guides:

I would highly recommend this book to anyone suffering from depression, anxiety, addiction, or just about anything that has to do with the brain and mind. Which means, almost everything. This book gives many excellent ideas and tools for healing. A great book.” serious reader

“I felt as if Debbie was a friend, giving me the tools to move out of the fog. There are many tools in her toolbox. I will refer to this book many times in my journey to ward off anxiety and depression. Thanks for writing such a helpful book! Highly recommended.” Lili

“Absolutely the best book of its’s type I have ever read. Highly recommended.” Tom


Life-changing. Everyone should read this book.” Penny

I absolutely loved this book! It is one of those books that I was gutted when it came to an end. Debbie writes with both humor and compassion and, as a fellow brain injury survivor, I found myself recognizing situations and emotions that Debbie writes about. I also found the book to be both comforting and uplifting as Debbie tells of her road to recovery, which gave me hope and determination to continue to strive towards a complete recovery. I recommend this book wholeheartedly.” Kate

Hampton remains steadfast in creating a memoir that shows both the problem and the solution.” Kirkus Reviews
