I have known Lauren McLaughlin for approximately 5 years and I must say it has been a pleasure.

A much evolved human being that has compassion for everyone and who always wants the very best for each and every individual.
Lauren is the ultimate professional. She is a gifted Coach any very experienced in helping others achieve results.

Working on a long term project like a novel requires application and self-belief - following through on the goal of publication requires planning and persistence and the ability to connect with and collaborate with industry partners.
Creative work is a very personal and often isolating experience; in my own efforts to become a committed and successful writer I’ve found the help of a qualified coach to be a valuable source of support and motivation.
I began working with Lauren McLaughlin three years ago after the completion of my first novel to help clear some blocks I had in taking steps toward publication. We worked not only on practical planning and goal setting but on personal issues of self sabotage and fears of success.
Having regular sessions with Lauren during the process of securing an agent, doing extensive rewrites to improve the work and enduring the frustration of the extended waiting periods that are part of the business enabled me to maintain my focus and equilibrium.
Lauren’s ability to positively reinforce my belief in my skills and to help me identify my own strengths and weaknesses, and her expertise in counselling me about the deeper issues and patterns that affect my success have helped me enormously in crafting an approach to my writing and goals that works for me.
The thing I most appreciate about working with Lauren is knowing that I have someone in my corner who ‘gets me’ understands my aims and wants them almost as much as me.
