Author Coaching With Soul

You will find all the costs below for the different coaching packages I offer writers with a committed writing practice. My current rates incorporate a discount in my first year of launching in 2024.

I currently run my online author coaching clinics on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9.00am – 5.00pm.

Areas I can support you with include:

  • Writers’ block
  • Imposter phenomenon
  • Procrastination
  • Mindset shifts
  • Tackling negativity bias
  • Reconnecting with creativity and joy
  • Holistic goal setting
  • Compassionate accountability

I offer you the time and space you need to think, reflect, and to become more aware of the challenges and opportunities confronting you and your writing. I will bear witness, listen, support and challenge you, while you set the agenda and the pace of your inner work.

Coaching is distinct from mentoring or manuscript assessment in that coaching does not involve my telling you how to write or how to get published; nor will I assess the quality of your manuscript. Rather, we will look together at aspects of your writing life and how you can access the wherewithal within you to reach your full potential.

You can expect bespoke coaching sessions which look at transforming your writing practice rather than examining a more transactional relationship with creativity. Write Within coaching is not based on a one-size fits all formula such as ‘write a novel in six weeks’.

In addition to the packages below, I also offer an affordable and subsidised clinic at the Poetry Pharmacy in Shropshire, contact me to find out more

Why choose Write Within coaching?

Are you an author, poet or writer with a committed practice who would like to move your work-in-progress forwards?

Perhaps you’ve taken time away from your creative project and would like to ease back into sustaining a writing habit?

Or maybe you want some other kind of change within the realm of an already established writing life, experimenting with a genre switch or an approach to writing which is new to you… but you’re not sure where to start.

Creative practitioners are used to being at crossroads. Coaching gives a transformative and confidential space, discrete time and a listening ear to better hear and understand yourself within your relationship to your writing practice – who are you, and what do you value? Where are you now? Where do you want to be? How are you going to get there?

Writers can be accustomed to using their whole selves as instruments or canvases for their artistic practice, and as such I welcome all aspects of the client’s self into the non-judgemental coaching space. Together, we will discuss the opportunities and obstacles which are facing you as you find a way to move towards your goal.

‘How do I know what I feel until I hear what I say?’ – Francis Crick
