What Paul says about Mentoring
I use mentoring myself so I really understand how important the relationship is between mentor and mentee. We’ll build a safe space where we can work honestly together to meet your objectives. I have mentored scores of clients and know that each is different and unique. When we know your objective, we can build a plan to achieve it.
The creation of a book can be a big challenge. As a qualified counsellor, I can also bring some empathy to what can be a sometimes demanding process. I will help you to progress your project, whatever it may be, but I will also help you to develop as a writer with a writer’s mindset and discipline.
I get great reward from sharing the pleasure and release that can come from getting down on the page something that’s been stored inside for months or even years!
I have lots of experience across a huge range of non-fiction genres and I especially enjoy books about business and management.
