So many writers struggle with finding the time to write, fear rejection, and fight to believe they are good at what they do. Writing is often such an isolating venture, where critical feedback once received, plays on an endless loop amid mounting pressure to sell stories. The result is a dread of sitting down of writing, manuscripts left in the drawer, and the feeling of having given up on oneself and ones potential.
Through my coaching and workshops my clients re-discover the joy and their love of writing. By doing so, they write more often, more consistently, and achieve success.
First I discuss with my client, their writing goals, their motivation behind those goals, and what is getting in the way: ie. what is taking away their joy of writing. I will assign some action steps that have everything to do with reaching the writing goals. While the action steps will be challenging, they will not be excessive. I don’t believe in taking away from writing time, I believe in adding value to it!
At the beginning each session, I do a quick check-in to see how my client did on the action steps. If they were all completed, we celebrate and build on them. If not, we figure out why and work through it so that my client soon has greater consistency and success in achieving those action steps.
Each session is tailor-made to what my client needs, what they are struggling with in that moment, to overcome it and reclaim the joy of writing and find success.
As your coach, I will give you the support, discipline, and strategies you need, to discover the joy of writing, and take it to the next level.

No sales pitch will be made as there is no need to sell the service. Coaching is not something anyone can sell you on, it’s something you invest in because you want it and you instinctively know that it will benefit you.
What is Coaching?
What an athletic coach does for your body, a Success Coach does for your life. Coaching is a powerful one-on-one supportive relationship that will assist you in finding out what winning in life really means to you. A Coach provides the tools, structure and support necessary for you to design a life that has purpose and fulfillment.
Coaching works because the immediate focus is on what is most important for the client. The client’s individual needs, values, beliefs, goals, visions and dreams are brought to the forefront. Coaches are trained to help you discover the answers, which are already in your possession, and then utilize them with purpose and clarity. In other words…. get results faster!
Coaching is not therapy. Therapy focuses on working with the past to heal old wounds. Coaching is positive, working with the present, and successfully moving forward.
How does a coaching session work?
The first session is 60 minutes with subsequent sessions 45 minutes in length.
Before the session, you will be required to fill out a Session Preparation Form to optimize your results and our time together. After the session, you will also be required to complete a Post Coaching Integration Form to support your growth and commitment and success.
I live in a different city, does that matter?
Coaching can be done either in person, via skype, or over the telephone. The choice is yours!
What about Confidentiality?
Clients’ confidentiality is ensured and information will not be released without informed consent, except in cases where a child/youth’s safety, well-being, or the safety of others is at risk. Specific information may be released, at the coach’s discretion, as per the Criminal Code of Canada, and the guidelines of the Province of Manitoba, and where the coach is required by law to give evidence in court.
