‘Philippa has been a wonderful writing coach and mentor. Like a kind of creative midwife, she has helped to nurture and coax my novel into life, encouraging me onwards when I’ve hit a block and offering practical guidance and feedback to help me shape and sharpen my narrative. She is endlessly patient and supportive yet manages to deliver constructive and incisive challenge just at the moment you most need it. For anyone looking to develop their writing or get a novel off the ground I really can’t recommend her highly enough.’

Structural editing (ie broad brush), subject to agreement.
(Philippa requires both a printed hard copy sent by post and an electronic copy by email).
Philippa is a certified NLP Hypnotist. As with Coaching, writers have enjoyed this as a way of getting in flow and moving with ease from their present state to their desired outcome.
