HELLO! I am a curious person! For years I explored the endless sky as a commercial helicopter pilot and then one day I was inexplicably drawn to silence. Almost overnight, I gave up aviation in pursuit of stillness and peace.

This turned out to be the best decision I have ever made. I felt the wonder of entering a peaceful space where my heart seemed to sing. In this blissful state of low thinking, I discovered that I could feel, hear, and perceive the ‘voices’ and ‘hearts’ of the 12 rescue horses and 4 rescue dogs at the farm where I live. Not only that, I realised I could also tap into the ‘vibrations’ of the wild deer, mobs of kangaroos and assortment of wild birds that freely roam upon the land around me. It was the wonderful, harmonious, grounding moment that I will forever remember; the time where I aligned with the sounds of nature.

As part of this little ‘shift’ I stumbled across The Trust Technique®. This one little chess move has quite simply altered the trajectory of my existence. I am now a fully qualified Trust Technique Practitioner, which affords me the privilege of spending lots of quality time with horses. It’s a beautiful existence.

I started feeling more right brain orientated and began writing books. The contents of which just flowed through my pen onto the pages in front of me, and it appears to be ongoing. It’s who I am now. I am a writer! I feel very humbled by this. That’s when the public speaking thing happened. I was invited to do talks, and word got around. It’s become something that I really enjoy doing and I find that I am perpetually scribbling notes preparing for the next talk. Again, I feel incredibly humble and grateful to be having such fun in the creative space.

So here we are, at the bottom of the page. I wholeheartedly welcome you to my website. I genuinely cherish that our paths have intersected, and I hope a morsel, or two, of something interesting finds its way to you from the pages ahead…

With warmth and love,

The Trust Technique


Every being is seeking connection. Our horses are no different. They are desperate for a deeper connection and deeper bond with their human carer/owner.

As a guardian of many horses myself, I know for a fact that anyone who spends as much time as we all do with our animals, that we have a curiosity and inner drive to try and understand them to the best of our ability, but very often the interspecies language barrier gets in the way and some horses develop anxiety and behavioural issues due to such miscommunications.

Horses are pleasers and naturally want to cooperate but struggle to do this if they are confused by our messages or have heightened thinking levels from feeling stressed.

The Trust Technique is a method of reducing thinking levels (human and horse) which promotes trust, connection, confidence, and enhanced communication.


The wisdom of frank the goat man

THE WISDOM OF FRANK THE GOAT MAN is a parable about kindness, compassion, and the Universe, written for both teenagers and adults.

This wonderful tale follows the journey of a little girl called Emily, as seen through the eyes of her Shetland pony ‘Poppy’ who narrates the story. We are shown Emily’s fascinating encounters with a curiously alluring elderly Chinese neighbour, known simply as ‘Frank the goat man’. Frank, a Master Philosopher, thoroughly captivates Emily with his interesting and diverse conversations as they chat over their shared fence line when she rides past on Poppy each day.

When Emily reaches adulthood, she feels ‘off course and lost’. Here, the story takes an interesting twist, where after many years of absence Frank and Poppy reappear to help Emily find her way.

“The wisdom of Frank the Goat man was a pure delight to read; so easy and quirky. Gosh it resonated with me! I felt like there was a little bit of me in Emily, in ALL stages of her life. It was purely magical reading it, especially the second time!  I recommend ALL should go pick up the book and get wisdom from Frank”

Merri Bolte

"A beautifully written story for all ages with a message of love, peace & awareness. The bond between human & animal is so much more than physical & will last a lifetime... & beyond."

Melissa Warren

“I thoroughly enjoyed ‘The wisdom of Frank the goat man’. It has made me think about things that are not physically there and tuned me in to the act of listening. 

I especially loved that the pony ‘Poppy’ was the narrator, looking at it from her point of view. Reading this book affirms to me what spiritual beings horses are. I now just want to run into the paddock and practice this gift with my own horses!”

Colleen Heard

“ What a delightful surprise this story is. Told in verse, it can be read on two levels - as a child’s story or one of deep meaning for adults. A most enjoyable read. Thank you, Debs “

Bliss Two

Bliss Two explores through the flow of poems the subtle hidden layers of the universe waiting to be discovered in the stillness of a quiet mind.

You will also delve into nature as poet Debs Carling shares what can be learned from a fluffy white cloud, a sloth, and even a buzzing bee. Find simple truths in short poems like “Silence” in which Carling commands, “To master the space you are in, silence the place deep within.”

This is more than a poetry book; it is a wonderfully insightful journey into the essence of oneness and mastery of inner peace.

Bliss Two is a wonderful book. I couldn't put it down! I have both Debs Carling's books now and can't wait for her to release a third one. It's been a subtle shift for me into another state of awareness. The clever thing is that it's so subtle but you feel a definite shift in your awareness! A must read. I highly recommend this fascinating book of poetry. One of a kind. Lisa Blythe

This is a beautifully written book. A poem a day will help you look at life through more positive eyes. I share the poems with my patients each day to inspire them to see how wonderful life really is. It teaches us not to be consumed with negative thoughts and to see life through Debs eyes which is really inspirational! There are natural miracles happening all around us and Debs shows us how to tune into them and appreciate them - you will never look at a common flower in the same way again! I highly recommend this book, and I intend to give a copy to each of my friends to share a piece of sunny side of life .
