What My Clients Say
Helen helped me to understand book writing and finish a book I’d already started. Making it fun – and never judgmental – she guided me and supported me when I got ‘stuck’, came up with some creative chapter headings and gave me the confidence to keep going.
It’s such a complex world if you’ve never written a book before but Helen makes it an enjoyable experience, with easy to follow steps and turns complexity into simplicity. Now I’m proud to have signed with a publisher and will be launching in just a few months – not sure I’d have persevered without her!
Helen’s 1:1 book coaching programme has been the most amazing foundation for me to write my own book. I had the ideas – I just didn’t know what to do next. This is where Helen’s wealth of knowledge and experience comes in. She shares with you practical How-To’s in book writing from basic research, useful resources, tools and formats all the way through to general advice about the publishing industry, such as self publishing versus finding the right traditional publisher. Helen’s approach to coaching is informal, which allows for creative thinking and conversation about ideas, which Helen is expert at. Each month Helen arranges our meeting and we get together to discuss progress, ideas and practical solutions to keep the momentum up. The weekly emails with lots of helpful tips and advice assist with the flow of the programme, so for the full six months it’s a project which you feel completely supported with. Helen’s flexibility allows for the coaching programme to fit in with your needs so there is never any pressure to have done certain tasks although the monthly meetings are great at plotting everything down and making sure things are going on the right track. If you are thinking about writing a book yourself, I would highly recommend Helen’s book coaching programmes.
Helen is just great, to be honest! We have worked together in a number of ways for quite a few years now. She is always willing and supportive, witty and bright, plus very skilled and talented in her work as a wordsmith, PR consultant and quite a lot of other things besides. I like to keep people like Helen close to me, so feel free to take her on, with the proviso that you leave enough room on her roster for our work, please.
Helen has a knack for seeing the wood from the trees – getting to what matters quickly and then coming up with a creative solution. I have always enjoyed working with Helen, she is both effective and a pleasure to be around.
We approached Helen for some social media content creation for our company as we wanted to increase our engagement with customers and a wider audience. She came up with heaps of ideas that were perfect for our brand values, and produced excellent content for our business. Our levels of engagement increased, and our facebook page and instagram accounts have seen increased activity as a direct result of her expert help. She is always enthusiastic, easy to work with, and totally understands what her clients need. She’s great!
Helen is a great writer and a creative marketer. She is really good at coming up with effective marketing strategies to target customers and meet business goals.
The Issues How can I improve my writing? It’s a question I’m often asked. In my work over the years, first in PR and then as a book coach and ghostwriter, I’ve had to review and edit thousands of pages of copy written by clients. Aside from spelling and grammar errors, you’d be amazed at […]
Four Ways To Overcome Writer’s Block It’s always a good plan to schedule in writing time, whether it’s for blog posts, articles or a book.
