Creative Coaching and Wellbeing
Writing for wellbeing
I facilitate sessions on writing for wellbeing that encourage people to manage their emotions through creative writing. Activities include journalling, vision boards and reflective writing practice.
I coach writers to tap into their creative insights through creating a space in which they have the freedom to follow their own thoughts and creativity. Whilst I draw on a variety of experience, resources, methodologies and activities, I don't follow a fixed programme and therefore I am able to support my clients to take ownership of their learning and insights whichever way they choose to.
Our writing retreats are set in the beautiful mountains of Andalusia, Spain. They are designed to give writers the time and space to focus on planning, writing or editing their book through a retreat.
These retreats are for authors who take their writing seriously, but also understand the value of spending time with like-minded people, exercise and good food as part of the creative process. Whether you are a beginner or have already published a book, you’ll love the air of creativity that you get from being surrounded by nature.
We believe writing should be an enjoyable experience and have created an environment that is both productive and relaxing. Guided walks for inspiration, a salt water pool and coaching are all provided along with a healthy but hearty menu.

I was motivated to undertake coaching at a time when I was going through a professional low. I felt I (and others) had been treated in a shoddy way and that years of work had not even been acknowledged. All this resulted in a deep sense of hurt, deception and low self-esteem. I was not even able to talk about this. Coaching with Rebecca helped enormously to be able to vocalise my feelings with respect to this situation; helping me to deal with hurt feelings and open. This was a necessary first stage in a healing process.
Rebecca posed questions to help me analyse my situation and set small objectives for myself to turn around my situation, start to take my control of my working life again and begin to feel less of a victim. With Rebecca I began to explore options. What I particular liked about the coaching with Rebecca was that I was in control of the process all the time. Small and achievable objectives were set by me and later amended if and when I felt circumstances required. Rebecca guided me by asking just the right questions to help plan but never took over or showed any sign of being judgmental which facilitated a candid and honest exchange throughout.
Overall, the impact of coaching with Rebecca has been very beneficial, it has not only helped me get through a difficult time, it has also helped me to recuperate and bounce back. I can’t say that I’m fulfilled with my job at present but I am more able to take a step back and not let any setbacks affect me in the same way they might have before. For the moment, and especially given the economic crisis, I don’t imagine that I’ll be able to change my job but in the meantime I plan to make the situation work for me as much as possible.
Thank you Rebecca! I’d certainly recommend coaching to others.

Rebecca has been amazing! She has coached me on a variety of issues on a very regular basis. I always look forward to our sessions because I always come away with a positive buzz feeling, defined actions to work on and the feeling that someone has really listened to me. Rebecca asks very insightful questions and raises my own awareness of issues by giving regular feedback. Rebecca can be challenging when needed and allows me time to think things through for myself. I have always found Rebecca to be very supportive, positive and non-judgemental. Rebecca has helped me to address confidence, work and life issues and in turn I feel more in control of my life and the decisions I make. I come away from every session with clear actions that are personal, realistic and relevant to my goals and where and how I want to move forward with my life. Rebecca works hard on getting my commitment to the actions and goals and I enjoy feeding back my progress each time.
Thank you so much for keeping me on track Rebecca!

Reflecting on our time away, thinking how lovely it was to arrive in the apartments and have everything prepared there and enough food for breakfast for the week and having the support of Rebecca around us and on hand, many thanks Rebecca for organising that
