Born in Dulwich, South East London, Debs Wallace loves her London roots, however with her parents and younger brother soon moved to Purley, Surrey. She was a mischievous child and today says that, being honest, she's carried quite a bit of that through to her adulthood! From age 8 through to 16 years old, she went to a boarding school located in the Chiltern Hills and loved taking early walks with the school dogs in the the nearby beautiful, Forestry Commission woods.
On leaving school, she did well at secretarial college, having dreamed of being a Fleet Street secretary like her mother, but had a passion for people and relationships and as she started work in the big wide world, she also began Youth Work on the streets in Purley and then later as a Guider running a guide company.
In 1997, a mid-life career change led her to train in counselling and her continuing education has just obtained a BA Honours from Roehampton and so we trace her story to where she is today.
