Taking the Expert Author Programme has made a huge difference to my ability to get my book off the ground. This work has been bubbling inside me for years but only with Alison's help has it become a reality. She has inspired, supported and challenged me alternately! I am really enjoying the process of writing and feeling much more confident in the result. I am profoundly grateful as this book has great personal meaning as well as being important to my business.

The Expert Author programme participants, April 2015

Alison showed a great deal of empathy, understanding and was excellent at keeping me on track and focused on the goal... She had great clarity and often asked challenging and powerful questions which enabled me to really think and see what it was that I really wanted to achieve.
