Freelance Non-Fiction Book Writing by Author, Instructor & Therapist Laurel Alexander
If you’re looking for a highly published, freelance non-fiction book writer with a background in business, health and wellbeing, I can help you.
The book is aimed at complementary therapists or healthcare professional who already have a skills base in healthcare or are working with people who want to bring wellness coaching into their existing practice. The coaching process is described in such an easy to understand manner that previously acquired coaching skills are really not necessary. Quite apart from the wellness niche described, much of the book provides a coaching model that could be used in many niches. Laurel also stresses that the coaching skills have limitations and the coach should beware of their limitations. Starting with the current wellness market and provision and exploring the trends and emerging processes ensure that the scene is well set for readers to decide how best to incorporate their existing skills into this new market. Each section is concluded with a set of questions so that understanding is confirmed before moving forwards. Laurel has based the coaching part of her book on cognitive behavioural coaching but has also taken time to describe many other approaches and how they can be integrated into the wellness coaching concept. Progressing through to practice management and marketing, this book is a rich sources of information written in a factual way but also with insets providing tips from Laurel’s experience, which provides greater insights and enjoyment in looking at the application of wellness coaching. I can thoroughly recommend Laurel’s book and consider it a great source of information, instruction and reflection for any therapist or healthcare professional looking to add to their existing skills base.

Laurel. I was made redundant in January last year, so while looking for a job I loaned books from the library. I came across your book Turn Redundancy into Opportunity. Since then I started my own company and while it is early days yet, I feel positive and am learning much about the international business world. Many thanks for the inspiration. Mark
