    Coaching Qualifications

    Professional Background

    I have always disliked the concept of a single, linear career that takes you from A to B, and instead built a portfolio career focused around journalism and writing.

    In 2003, I joined the Sentinel newspaper in Stoke on Trent. I was a features writer for national titles, including the Daily Mirror, Bella, That’s Life, Take A Break, Woman’s Own and Fortune.

    In truth, I always struggled to fit into the 9 to 5, corporate lifestyle and just before the pandemic, took matters into my own hands to build a publishing business that not only spoke to my strengths and skills but could also make a positive difference.

    What drew you to coaching?

    I am a writing consultant, rather than a coach. I am passionate about wellbeing and self-help – and of course, writing.

    I love helping writers with a focus on wellness but also provide initial consultancy for people who want to publish, be it non-fiction or fiction.

    As a writing consultant, my emphasis is not only on writing itself but also on personal growth through creativity and self-expression.

    I have been a journalist since 2003 and launched my own publishing business in 2020.
