Writing and copywriting

‘I’ve been impressed with Deborah for a long while. I loved the copy she wrote for me for a recent launch and it delights me to send her business as a copywriter and writing coach and mentor for my clients. She’s also a truly amazing life coach, who’s highly skilled in supporting and guiding her clients as they move towards their dreams and right life. If you really want to see and feel positive juicy change in your life; or to create copy others CRAVE you should get in touch with her.’

Susan Hyatt, Master Certified Life Coach.

I offer:

Copywriting and content creation coaching for life coaches and other light workers. We work together to create the content and copy that speaks to and engages with your ideal client and that you are proud to have online or in print.

Writing coaching for academics and authors. I help authors with the mindset and confidence they need to get their writing written.

Your writing as a coach

I can help you to write the copy and content you want to as your writing coach and mentor.

I can help you create content by workshopping together – retreats, workshops, online courses, podcasts, blogs – with whatever is calling your heart.

We can work together to create copy on your website or in your email communications that resonates with your tribe and makes them want to pull up a chair by the fireside to listen to what you have to say.

Want to be a writer?

I can help you claim that you are a writer.

I can help you to feel more comfortable in the writing process more of the time and more likely to keep going when it feels uncomfortable.

I can help you create writing that is a reflection of who YOU are and isn’t a mishmash of what everyone else is doing.

I help writers and academics do the writing they are called to do.

“After multiple failed attempts at finding a copywriter who ‘got it’, I was over the moon thrilled to work with Deborah. She has an innate knack for this type of work. She takes the time to understand the target client, uses her creativity to communicate with them right on their wavelength, and she is consistently on time with her work. Additionally, Deborah is also a lifelong learner, and I know that she brings her curiosity to the world of marketing to get new insights and hone her skills. We are ahead of the ball and more effective with our marketing because of her support.” -Alison Cardy, Cardy Career Coaching

‘One of the most valuable ways I benefited from working with Deborah was by her guiding me through the creation of the outline/structure for an online course that packages my wisdom into a valuable product – something that I had struggled with for over a year!

As a designer & energy healer for homes and spaces, I’m a wayfinder and coach in disguise. Her picking up limiting beliefs in a glimpse while workshopping made me move through what had held me back even for so long – in a gentle and easy way.

She not only brings brilliant coaching skills to the table (actually, the Skype headset in my case) but actually has professional experience in teaching and creating fascinating lessons. Deborah is one of the best coaches I have worked with – ever.’

I asked for Deborah´s support on writing an important text for my business. In just 45 minutes, she helped create total clarity for me, we drew up all key points for my message and I even had a metaphor connected to my brand. As a result of these 45 minutes, I know I saved at least 4 hours of work and the quality of what I created was much higher, as well as my confidence in the piece.

Her ability to create excellent copy on the spot, which is true to the individual is simply impressive.

Deborah has a grounding energy. She keeps the “big picture” in mind at all times when I get caught up in the details or distracted by less important aspects. She is also a pleasure to work with, which is important to me.

I also think it will positively influence the next three pieces I have to create because I will remember to keep the same mindset she encouraged me to take for this round.

I would recommend Deborah as a coach without hesitation. She is an excellent coach – who is true to the Martha Beck approach while still employing her own style. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to save time and create higher quality copy that reflects their core messages. She has a great combination of “grounded coach” and “excellent writer” to help you get there.

You will get excellent value if you spend even 30 minutes with Deborah. She works fast and keeps the big picture (your objectives) in mind. If you are not even clear on what those are, she can help you get there.

Get ready to be “wowed”.
