Testimonials

‘Nicole’s group provides a safe and supportive environment for exploring your writing. Having a daily target of 10minutes writing is so achievable and I was delighted with the amount I got written in just 7 days.’ Jane Jackson, Author and Energy Practitioner at Free Your Emotions

‘I have not shared my writing before and sharing it here gave me the confidence to continue to write. Believing now that my writing is not to sit in the computer but to be of benefit to others too and may even change lives. The feedback was given gently/kindly with information/teaching added. Thank you Nicole Johnston. It was so useful.’   Maureen Tuitt, Therapist, Group Leader and Facilitator at Insight Specialist Counselling Service

‘What an amazing day! Thanks so much Nicole Johnston. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I knew I really needed to take action on my long awaited words! The format was clear and thorough. and I came away having achieved all the stated objectives.
It’s said that we all have a book inside us, so watch this space, and if you’re thinking of putting pen to paper for your book – I can’t recommend Nicole highly enough.’
Jackie Groundsell, Owner and CEO at 1230 The Women’s Company List

‘Although I am a professional writer of sorts – a journalist – I’d never dared hope that I could write anything creative or fiction-like because I’d set the bar too high. This group has enabled me to explore other forms of writing but more importantly get positive feedback which has made an enormous difference. Thank you Nicole.’ Anne Gould, Journalist, Writer, Editor and Video Trainer at WorkingWordz Video le 7

‘I’ve worked with Nicole over the past year both on my personal communications and on my business communications and PR. Being someone that regularly writes but now I’m limited on time, she really stepped up and produced a very high level of work, at times at short notice. That is why when I needed to engage someone for similar work for a business I run, I had no hesitation that Nicole could work with us and really help drive our business forward. I would not hesitate to work with her, not only is it a joy but she really is the best at what she does.’  Alex Galviz, Co-founder of #linkedinlocal and Localx

‘Nicole helped me with writing website copy, blog posts and even simple things like events flyers. This type of writing is not in my comfort zone and Nicole gently but assertively gave me feedback on what was and what wasn’t great about what I’d written. Helpful suggestions made all the difference. She is my go-to person for writing advice and that’s why I’m delighted to collaborate with her on her writing workshops.’ Debbie Fisher, Coach and Facilitator, Debbie Fisher Coaching

We highly recommend her for all your intelligent engagement comms.’  Mairi McHaffie, Director, SceneChange
