the i can make you write challenge

Hello everyone,


I am really excited to run my first 7 day free I can make you write challenge starting on the 24th of April. We are going to have so much fun.

But first why do I claim that I can make you write? Who am I?

Well, first, I am an author. I have completed five manuscripts and self-published two full length books. The first one in 2009 was a non fiction book and centered around my clinical hypnotherapy business which at the time catered mostly for women who wanted to lose weight. The second one, called My Father Who Art in Heaven, is a memoir and has just been released in March 2017. You can find out more about my work as an author here. So, as a professional author, I know what the writer’s journey is like. I was blocked myself for nearly ten years after trying to get my first novel published in 1996. I know, that’s over twenty years ago. Back then, writing was a hobby and my main career was in international law. This does come handy when negotiating book deals and agent contracts. He he he.

Second, I am a clinical hypnotherapist. Remember Paul McKenna: I can make you thin, I can make you rich… well I have decided to specialise in making people write. But not anyone. Here is my ideal client: a female inspirational leader. Someone who leads by example and whose occupation is deeply linked to her purpose in life and who has been told again and again that she should write a book but doesn’t know where to start. Or maybe she has tried and has never finished. She is probably stuck and would love to have help from someone who understands her. She leads a busy life.

As a clinical hypnotherapist I can help anyone with mindset issues. I can definitely help ladies with blocks. And as importantly, I can help you keep the momentum going which for writers is absolutely essential. Writing is a long distance running game. Not a fast race game.

Last but not least, I am a healer. I work with energy. And you might wonder what it has to do with writing but it has a lot to do with it. Books have energies. Books even have personalities. You want to tune in to the energy of a book to find out what it is really all about but also to find out if that is the right book at this point in time. I can also help with that.

So what is this challenge going to be like? I don’t want to reveal too much at this stage but by the end of the challenge you will have created a space for your writing. You will have created a specific time in the day to start your writing practice. You will also have connected to the energy of your book. We will also have explored some of the blocks that are likely to stop you writing it – and we will clear them. Thanks to that, your energy will be completely aligned with your book and the writing will be easy and effortless. Yes you read me correctly.

Before I trained a clinical hypnotherapist and a healer, writing was sometimes painful and often difficult. After I trained in those wonderful modalities, I wrote a non fiction book in six weeks. The experience was radically different. Like night and day. It was all the more fantastic that I was at the time suffering from a writer’s block that had lasted TEN years. It was a miracle.

And for now, good luck with your writing.

    This has been an amazing challenge. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to write a book, or a story that’s truly aligned with them. So often we get ideas, and we write what we think will be something really amazing, but quite often the drive fizzles, the idea fizzles, and we fizzle along with it until the next brilliant idea comes. The best part of this challenge is that straight away, Ange gets you out of your head and away from your ideas, and she connects you with the book that wants to be written through you. Ange had told me about one of her techniques before the course began and the structure and content of my story changed quite dramatically simply by allowing the story that wanted to be written to come out, rather than trying to put it all together in a structure I thought was best and I wrote quite possibly the best story I’ve ever written for a client.

    Through this 7 Day challenge, I’ve met the book I’m going to write. It’s unlike anything I ever dreamed of, and it’s going to be life changing. But Ange doesn’t just introduce you to your book, she digs deeper to not only help you discover what is blocking you from completing that book, but gives you tools to overcome those blocks, and that’s what sets her apart from any other writing coach or course I’ve met. 🙂
