Coaching Circle for Writers

Do you have a writing project that you’d like to develop or finish? Would you like to embrace the new year energy and turn it into something?  To know yourself as someone who can and does in 2022?

If so, then I am running a small group coaching circle comprised of 5 women writers. Read on for more details...

Who is it for?

Writers who want to get on with their writing – to make it happen – and who believe that it will be more fun doing so with others. 

You would welcome some dedicated support achieving this for yourself. You are committed to taking action and ready to do so.

You can be at any stage of your writing journey, with any level of experience and working on any type of writing project.

What is it?

A group of 5 women will get together with me once every two weeks to work on making their writing happen.

We’ll meet for 6 x two hour sessions.

We’ll cover the following:

  • In the first session, you’ll start by creating your own vision board for 2022. This will help you to root yourself in what it is you REALLY want to accomplish for yourself over the duration of the coaching circle.
  • At the next session, you’ll be guided though creating your desired writing-related outcome to the end of March.
  • At this (and each following) session you’ll create a set of realistic actions for the next 2 weeks that are consistent with your desired outcome.  In this way you’ll break it down in to chunks for yourself.
  • At the start of each following session we’ll start by recapping what has worked, what you’d do differently next time, and what you’ve learnt since the last session.
  • This will help us to uncover your limiting beliefs: those old familiar ways of being that hold you back. You know, the ones that have become so familiar they sometimes feel like they’re an intrinsic part of you. You’ll notice them AND, most importantly, start to reclaim your power over them. 
  • Underpinning all of this will be a recognition of the importance of self care. We’ll ongoingly consider how to take care of your energy to ensure a strong foundation upon which your creative life can flourish.

When

We’ll meet twice a month on the following Mondays from 10am – midday GMT:

17th January

31st January

14th February

28th February

14th March

28th March

Please note arrival from 9:45am to ensure a prompt 10am start time.

Where?

The sessions will take place via Zoom.

Why?

As with all coaching, this will be a space to honour yourself and your true priorities.  By signing up for this you’re choosing to step off your repetitive ‘hamster wheel’.  The coaching circle will provide a space for clarity, and support you in staying focused and motivated.  Ultimately, it’s about you starting to know yourself as someone who can and does.  

As well as being part of a team and having women root for each other, there’s a magical power inherent in being coached in a small group.  The sessions will be balanced to ensure time to cover your area plus you benefit from witnessing others being coached: those ‘ah, ha’ moments when you realise you could also use that idea they’ve just had.

Finally, it as an affordable way for those who want to access ongoing powerful coaching for themselves to do so.

How much does it cost?

£350 per woman AND you can pay in 3 instalments – £150 at the time of booking and £100 due 1st February & 1st March.

Here’s what one of the autumn 2021 participants had to say about their experience,

I have had writing mentors and even therapy about what was stopping me writing. This year I decided I had to do it finally, or stop trying. I am nearly fifty and I have never even written a book, never finished a manuscript. Not even a crappy first draft.

I saw Arlene’s advert and it got me interested. Maybe this is what I need, someone to help me get over myself, and my ‘blocks’ and get words on the page. The price was right, the timing was perfect, and I decided to sign up.

On 16 September I met my fellow course members. I had a first chapter of just over 5,000 words and I committed to writing 2500 words a week for the next two weeks. I set my overall goal that day too. I said that on the 2 December I would have a manuscript of 30,000 words. Secretly I dreamed of having 50,000 but is seemed out of my reach and impossible at the time.

Fast forward to twelve weeks later and I have a manuscript of 57,000 words!! That means I wrote 52,000 in 12 weeks, four thousand three hundred and fifty words a week, or 620 words a day. 620 words a day which I had never written in the last 35 years of me wanting to be a writer.

The small group works really well. Everyone has time to voice their successes and failures and Arlene encourages us to help each other out with ideas for practical problems and swap ideas. 

For example, I had a kind of epiphany thanks to another group member who took herself off for a writing retreat to a friend’s house, I suddenly realised I could do that too! No need to spend €5,000 for an official writing retreat, I booked 6 nights in Florence in an Airbnb and got myself some time and space for writing without breaking the bank.

I have signed up for the next one in January, and in the meantime I am keeping the momentum going by using the methods that Arlene introduced to us, setting manageable goals to reach every two weeks in order to reach one overarching goal. 

Arlene is spiritual and practical, she won’t go into the whys or wherefores (but she will give you links to professionals or books to help with other deeper issues) and she will give you a personalized method to help empower you to achieve what you never dared dream was possible! 

If you have to choose one thing in 2022 to make your dream of being a writer real, choose this. Arlene will motivate and empower you beyond your wildest dreams. Writer’s block will become a distant memory and your fears and insecurities will take a back seat to make way for mind blowing action.

I cannot recommend it highly enough, a positive experience in every way.
