Deborah Stathis was a normal, happy and optimistic 19-year-old, when the car she was driving hit a slippery part of the highway, slid out of control and wrapped itself around a telegraph pole, crushing her on the inside. There were no airbags in the car, so Deb sustained life-altering injuries to her face, her eyes and her brain. Medical professionals stated that she would never be the same and would be affected, physically and mentally, for the rest of her life. Deb did not accept that diagnosis.

The defining  moment came for Deb whilst alone in her room in the rehab centre. She decided to look at the thing she had been protected from for many weeks… her face. She looked at the devastating injuries, she cried and she said to herself,  “You’re here now, what are you going to do?” What she did will amaze and inspire you as she went on to transform and reconstruct her face, her body and her life.

Deborah has multiple qualifications in Cognitive Behavioral Coaching practices, Management and Training and Assessment. She is also Certified in world-leading Accelerated-Learning Techniques and is an experienced Professional Education Consultant. She expands on her methods which saw her triumph against the odds and combines her skills in professional and business development to coach and inspire with her book, seminars, workshops and programs designed for individuals, groups, women’s groups and businesses.

Having proved opportunities can be created from tragedy, Deborah shares her Tragic Opportunities Process and Revival Plan Formula to help others achieve their goals and dreams. Trust me when I say, this is a podcast and a conversation that will change your life.
