Coaching for freelancers and the self-employed
Whether you want the personalised feeling of individual coaching or the camaraderie of group coaching, all the coaching at Freelance Feels is aimed at the self-employed and freelance, or anyone who is thinking of setting up on their own. As a freelancer, I truly understand what it's like being self-employed so we can get to the root of what's challenging you.
If you’re confused about where your business is heading, want to set goals to build your audience or client base, or just need to sort out how you feel about being self-employed and find a way forward, I can help.
Being a freelancer isn’t easy, and I understand that from personal experience! I also know how coaching can help – it can bring clarity, help you make plans, and help you fall back in love with a business that might not be working for you right now.
The coaching industry is growing rapidly, and many people offer coaching. So what sets me and Freelance Feels apart? I have trained with the renowned Optimus Coaching, an intense 6-month programme which has given me strong foundations and direct experience of coaching, including pure coaching. Optimus is ICF-accredited and I am ACC accredited, too. And I'm a freelancer, so I understand what you're going through and how it feels to be self-employed.
Secondly, I'm an experienced journalist and freelancer, and bring all of my experience to my coaching. I've been freelance since 2005, and also worked in different staff jobs where I regularly had contact with freelancers, as a Commissioning Editor. This gave me a unique perspective on self-employed life from both sides of the table or email. I truly know what it’s like to be professionally ghosted, to wonder if you should ditch the freelance life, but also how it feels to land the dream client or commission.
I'm a trained Tefl teacher (teaching English as a foreign language) and visiting lecturer at City University, London, on Writing for Business and Going Freelance with Confidence. So, I know what I'm doing when it comes to leading a group, too.
