Debi Richens is highly regarded for her Personal Evolution coaching work in Trauma, PTSD, Grief, and Loss. She has a particular interest in Parental Alienation, Grandparent Alienation and Estrangement, and has a firm belief that everyone should be afforded a voice, be heard, and feel safe enough to have that voice. 

The Founder of Phoenix Awakening Training, Coaching & Mentoring, Debi has years of personal experience of supporting others.

Her 20-year career in dentistry saw her mentoring patients who carried a great deal of anxiety and fear in having even the basic treatments and investigations done, and those with complex treatments relied heavily on Debi’s support.

An optimist at heart, Debi has worked through many life’s challenges from all aspects.

In her personal life, Debi experienced a complex childhood, life-changing bereavements, relationship breakdowns followed by parental alienation, major health issues, and is now an alienated grandparent.

Although her working life encompasses many of her life’s experiences, her personal growth and her journey of acquiring new skills and knowledge, it was the Certification as a Grief Recovery Specialist which changed her life completely. Debi now uses all her skills and knowledge to support others through Trauma, PTSD, Grief, and Loss.

Debi offers one-to-one support, as well as training, workshops and welcomes speaking opportunities. She is a regular speaker and podcast guest, and contributes to articles on parental and grandparent alienation.
