Self-Care Activist | Growth Catalyst

Connecting through conversations

Hi, I’m Rachael.

I call myself a self-care activist and growth-catalyst because I’ve found that’s the best way to describe everything I do.

I’m a freelance writer, author/poet and personal coach, passionate about personal growth.

The thread that runs through all of these things is connection, because I believe that connecting with you on a personal level is the essential foundation upon which we can co-create your success. And this all starts with a conversation.

So, whether you’re looking for a writer who can pour your passion onto the page, a coach who will empower you to achieve your goals or a poet who can wrap your message in rhyme, let’s get this conversation started!

Published work

My poems have been published in several magazines and anthologies and my first collection, Sauce will Thicken on Standing, was published by soul-led publishing imprint The Unbound Press in May 2023.

Copy and Content Writing.

You’re passionate about what you do. I’m passionate about making sure I really understand what it is you want to say, so that I can help you find the right words.

During our initial consultation, we’ll get to know each other so that I can really get a feel for the message you want to convey and why.

Our Words

We’ll work together to make sure I capture the right tone of voice for your needs. So, although I will write the words, they will be a joint effort.

Ready to reclaim your time?

From annual reports to creative web copy, I can create communications that will raise your profile and engage with your ideal audience.

As no two organisations are the same, I offer a tailored approach that can include (but is not limited to) any one or all of the following:

  • Annual reports

  • Blog posts

  • Fresh copy for a new or existing website

  • Newsletters

  • Social media consulting

  • Website review and recommendations

I also offer editing and proofreading services. Prices will depend on what you need but as a general guide, a single blog post can range from £50 - £100 depending on length, the amount of research required and whether I also source images and upload blogs to your CMS system for you.

For more complex projects, my day rate is £350/day, with charitable discounts available. If you’re not sure what would best suit your needs, get in touch and we will work out something that works within your budget.

Personal Coaching

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.”
- Marianne Williamson

Does this quote speak to you, too?

Have you been telling yourself the story that you, and/or what you do, is never ‘enough’?

What if, instead of focusing on this not enough-ness, you accepted yourself wholly and completely, just as you are? What if you truly learned to love yourself, and acted accordingly?

If this is something you’re working on, or would like to be, then you’re in the right place. Welcome!

Top Personal Coach

Rachael has been recognised as a Top Personal Coach by Coach Foundation, one of the biggest names in the coaching industry.

Creative. Gentle. Powerful

My style of coaching is naturally laid-back and my approach is particularly suited to those who identify as highly sensitive and/or are neurodivergent.

That said, I enjoy working with anyone interested in their personal growth and when it comes to how we work together, I am most interested in what works for you.

My experience includes supporting people with:

  • Improving self-confidence / self-empowerment

  • Navigating major life transitions

  • Identifying, and making progress towards life goals

  • Supporting neurodivergent adults and parents of neurodivergent children through personal coaching and practical support.

However, my training doesn’t exclude any other challenges you may need support with.

Creating a real connection

While I do have the 'proper' credentials and experience, I believe that the most important aspect of our work together is the connection between us. As all of my work takes a relational approach, my qualifications don't mean anything if you don't feel comfortable with me. This is why I offer a free 30 minute consultation before we begin working together.

In our initial conversation, we’ll get to know each other so that I can take into account your unique needs and tailor my approach to our work, to ensure that together, we can create lasting positive changes.

Get in touch to learn more and book your free consultation. I look forward to connecting with you!


When it comes to writing, poetry is my first love. Poetry is the first form of writing I shared in public and it’s also the first reason I created an online profile, back in 2005 when MySpace was still a thing. But this isn’t about me. It’s about you. Do you:

  • Need to create compelling campaign material?

  • Need to give a speech and want it to have that little extra something?

  • Want to thank someone, or mark a special occasion with a unique gift?

Then I can help. From births to weddings, to funerals; from charity campaigns to community events, I can create a personalised poem - or even a larger scale poetic project - that meets your needs. Previous commissions include wedding poems and poetic wedding favours, a book launch performance poetry commission, a neurodiversity conference commission, educational aids and resources for a domestic violence charity.

Following a free consultation, during which we’ll discuss your needs and the impact you want to have, I’ll take your words and wrap them in a poem that tells your story in a unique way. Get in touch to book your initial chat now.

"It’s hard to quantify what you do but it's so powerful. You always pick up on the smallest things and with just a few words can create the biggest shifts."

D, Coaching client

"Rachael was an absolute pleasure to work with. She understood my business and my message from the start, and translated this in to accessible language for my brochure. She always met deadlines and, more importantly, quickly picked up on how I liked to work and flexed her style accordingly. I would definitely recommend working with her!"

Roxanne Hobbs, Founder of The Hobbs Consultancy

" Rachael has been gently encouraging me to write a book for a long time, helping me improve as a writer and without whom I might never have found the confidence to make this book happen."
