Coaching

You may know all the things you ‘should’ be doing, but something is

holding you back and keeping you stuck.

I can help you move forward.

Do YOU recognise yourself in any of the following?

∗You’ve found that your confidence is dwindling, or has gone altogether∗

∗You’re worried that the best part of your career as an author is behind you∗

∗You can’t help being distracted by, and more than a bit envious of,

the success of other authors∗

∗You’re doubting your own abilities and sometimes even feel a bit of a fraud

calling yourself an author∗

∗You have a really mean inner voice who is very negative∗

∗You’re worried about getting visible and telling people about your book∗

∗You find yourself endlessly procrastinating to avoid the tasks you need to do∗

∗You feel overwhelmed with all the things to think about and not sure where to start∗

∗You’d like someone to talk to, or use as a soundboard, but feel uncomfortable raising your worries with your editor and/or agent right now∗

First of all, please know that feeling like this is very common, and can happen to us all. In the past, I have felt all of the above in relation to my own work and life.

As an author, you are a business.

If you lose your way, everything suffers.

So it is important to address what’s going on and move forward.

As your coach, my role is to help you identify what’s holding you back from where you want to be, what you want to achieve and how you want to feel.

Then together we work to find ways through, so we can get you to a place of clarity, where you have self belief and confidence in your abilities and are happy and positive about your career now and in the future.

Many of my clients have found that after a period of coaching with me they:

 

∗Feel much more confident in their own abilities∗

∗Are happy to get visible without fear of judgement∗

∗Have lots of tools and tricks to keep them moving forward positively and with confidence, and if doubts creep in they know how to respond to them∗

∗Break free of that mean inner voice and know how to make them be quiet∗

∗Are focused on their own path rather than being distracted by others∗

∗Have clarity on how to move forward∗

If you think coaching might be the support you need right now, let’s have a quick chat, with no obligation, to see if it could help.

‘My coaching sessions with Kelly couldn’t have come at a better time. I’ve had such a brilliant start to my career as a children’s author but I was burned out after taking on too much too fast and I needed a recovery plan. I was feeling inexplicably low and anxious and unable to move forward with anything despite the fact that I had some exciting opportunities to explore. I was stuck. Kelly was warm, understanding, and insightful. She helped me put together a plan to recover from burnout, reclaim control over my time, set boundaries, and keep my attention on what matters most to me. It’s brought so much joy and focus. I’m loving being a writer again and I’m feeling so positive about the future. I can’t thank her enough for that.’

‘Kelly is a brilliant coach. She’s a perfect combination of persuasive and sensitive. She gently coaxes me to overcome my blocks to help me achieve my professional and personal goals.

We end each session with actionable points to which I’m held accountable and which I make every attempt to complete before our next session.

I would say that working with her has been transformative for my business and for me personally. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone seeking a business coach.’

‘I turned to Kelly during a difficult moment in my career when for various reasons – both personal and professional – I found myself lacking focus and feeling like my best achievements were behind me.

Over a series of weeks, Kelly worked with me as a coach and mentor to establish a more positive and productive mindset.

The work we have done together has transformed my creative output and self-confidence. Kelly has given me tools to help me quiet that voice of doubt in the back of my head and encouraged not just healthier work patterns, but wider life habits that I know I will use in the future.

Kelly is a calm, kind and skilful coach who really does bring out the best in people. If you are struggling with confidence, direction or motivation I can highly recommend her.’

“Kelly Weekes is more than a marketing mentor; she is an avid supporter of your work and she wants you to achieve your goals.

Kelly takes the time to get to know her clients, their personalities, and thinks of ways to help them represent themselves in a way that is true to them; working with her is a wonderfully empowering experience.”

“Kelly helped me on the launch of my first novel “The Curious Rise of Alex Lazarus” and was a delight to work with her.

She is very knowledgeable (and wise!) on all aspects of digital marketing and a brilliant and creative guide in formulating and executing a strategy. She is organised, a brilliant communicator and above all an amazing coach and cheerleader. I could not recommend her highly enough.”
