"In addition to moving forward on the novel and developing a strong daily writing habit I re-discovered the joy and healing power that writing has in my life."
How it works:
As your coach, I use an effective mix of practical and creative exercises, fun experiments, evidenced-based learning and exploratory conversations to enable you to reach your goals.
Coaching sessions are conducted on the phone, and I work with clients in bi-monthly 45-minute sessions (or in weekly 30-minute sessions) with a variety of support structures between calls to keep you on track. Most of the work happens between sessions as you examine old beliefs, practice new habits, and step closer to your goal.
Coaching packages begin with a 3-month commitment, during which clients discover helpful insights and work to have new behaviors take root. Most clients, however, begin to see real progress and make lasting change after 6-9 months of investment. .
What some current clients have to say
"This time last year, this book project felt so impossible. I knew it was a good idea, but it felt so big. I was so worried about how to begin, how to structure it.
In the past, finishing something was something I struggled with. But now, by talking about it with you, and doing these exercises--it's really opened up the process. I'm really excited about the progress I'm making and I'm on track to complete a full draft
by the end of the year."
"Melanie! I implemented some of the strategies
we talked about and it made a real difference!
It helped me to switch the script in my head around the blank page, and it also helped to limit research that I do to procrastinate. I’m really happy about this change that’s happening, and eager to see where it goes."
