"‘The session - I loved it……..just what I needed. Brainstorming but with direction, and I really felt as though Nicola knows her stuff which is very inspiring and reassuring. I also feel as though I have somebody on my side, the sense of support and enthusiasm coupled with belief from her is wonderful. I came away really believing that I can do this and, with Nicola’s support, I know I can make it great … Thank you.’" -- Alex Brown, Now Agented
"It is true to say that in all service-related dealings it is the people that make the difference and Nicola’s approach and interpersonal skills were of the highest standard. Once again thank you for providing this excellent service, we will certainly be recommending this service to other serious writers as a result of this experience.' - Kathryn
The breakthroughs that writers experience in my workshops and programs make them authorities on the stories they are telling themselves and the story they are trying to tell; which, in turn, makes for more robust writers who are no longer second guessing themselves or anyone else that matters. What I do is help writers recover their bearings and inhabit a healthy headspace, ensuring that the demands of their novel, their Art, life, the writing community and the marketplace no longer eclipse the one person holding all this together: You.
