Integrated Wellness Consultant
I'm Deb and I am a mumtrepenuer, wellness educator and healer.
Two years ago my family and I moved to the stunning Coromandel peninsula in New Zealand to reconnect to each other and nature. Life had become busy busy busy and I was personally feeling stressed out, burnt out and overwhelmed. The loss of a close family member to cancer made my husband and I sit down and take a really good look at our health and our lifestyle. We decided to hit the reset button.
Health and wellness has always been a huge passion of mine but I have not always been that healthy or well. I have been a competitive bodybuilder, I have been a Les Mills group fitness instructor, I have also been very overweight and am probably what you would call a highly achieving anxious/depressive person (if there is such a thing!).
My favourite gym instructor used to shout at us: "Turn your pain into power!" and I feel as though this has become my mantra for my life!
As an overweight teen I decided to transform myself and lost 25kg to compete and win the title of Junior Woman Bodybuilder at the 1997 Auckland Champs. Yoga found me in the year 2000 and I have worked at this for 20 years, finding it an invaluable tool in bringing me into alignment on every level.
The journey into motherhood was one of my biggest challenges with a baby that didn't sleep but I was saved by a friend who took me to her local Playcentre. I left 5 years later having held over 9 different centre positions including President and Extended Sessions Supervisor, fully trained and with a HUGE collection of positive parenting and team leadership skills. Various health challenges with my kids have sent me on a mission to learn all I can about natural living, healthy eating and gut health.
Essential oils entered my world a few years ago and have absolutely hands down been my saviour and have been the MOST powerful healing tool I have found. They have also awakened me to a whole new way of living and being including Reiki energy healing.
I have been self employed for most of my life and have run a successful wedding photography business for the last 5 years, Debbie Lim Photography. I'm a highly creative graduate of fine arts and enjoy painting.
I guess you could say my life has been a holistic journey of self discovery and learning to integrate all parts of my life experiences - the good, the bad and the ugly into opportunities for learning and growth that have laid the foundation for Deb's Wellness Project.
Thats a little bit about me,
I'd love to know a little bit more about YOU.

Abundance is an important part of wellbeing. Your health is your first wealth, but money matters too. Deb's Wellness Project also offers opportunities for you to create a life of financial freedom by joining her amazing team of essential oil soul sisters.

Our team culture is defined by co-creation and is a place where everybody has their place and is valued.
The Deb's Wellness Project vision is a world where people are empowered in their health. They have regained trust and awareness of the power of their bodies to heal and be balanced and in their ability to make their own choices about their health. They are educated about how to take care of themselves emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.
They have remembered their divinity and that they originated as love and as such treat their bodies as extensions of this with respect and honour.
These people go on to share their wisdom, connect to and inspire all that they meet just by being who they really are, creating an endless ripple effect of positive change that reverberates around the world.
Waking up in the morning feeling refreshed. Rolling out of bed feeling excited about the day ahead and all it holds. Wellness is quality time with family, pets and nature, being grounded and present in every breath. Its feeling motivated and inspired to move your body in an enjoyable way and nourish yourself with delicious healthy food. Wellness is a feeling of abundance in material wealth, in health, in energy and in time. Wellness is the ability to feel peace despite the many chaotic challenges of modern life.
