Book Coach

1:1 Book Coaching Programme

As a book coach I help my clients’ get started on their book project. My passion is working with writers’ who are serious about their creative idea and are looking for support and accountability on that journey. Think of me as your personal Yoda!

Every project is different. Some books take longer than others for a multitude of reasons (research, time restrictions, word count, etc). To that end, I offer a flexible 1:1 programme with a 12-week minimum process.

Whether you have an idea and need help developing this, or a partial first draft, I will guide you through every stage.

My 1:1 book coaching includes:

  • 90-Minute Strategy Session
  • 11 x Weekly Accountability Sessions (1 hour each) via Zoom
  • Email Access for Additional Support
  • Honest Feedback
  • Access to private Facebook Group

I specialise in non-fiction business books as well as memoir projects. For a detailed PDF of my 1:1 Coaching Programme, or to have a chat about your project, please get in touch HERE.

Writing Workshops

Do you have an idea for a non-fiction book?

Are you desperate to tell your personal story/memoir?

Writing a book is top of the bucket list for so many people, but knowing how to get started can be a stumbling block. If you’ve longed to write a book but don’t know where to start, I can help you navigate from idea to first draft.

You can sign up for my half or full day writing workshops where I’ll guide you through getting that idea out of your head and down on paper.


My full day writing workshop includes:

• How to choose the most appropriate topic to write about.
• How to structure your book/chapters.
• Techniques to build a writing routine.
• Motivational tips for completing that first draft.
• Finishing touches: Editing, formatting, cover design, publishing.

Through a blend of exercises and feedback, I’ll get you one step closer to writing your book. Full day workshops are 10am – 4pm and include refreshments (bring your own lunch).
