To adequately quantify or convey the depths of positive impact Clayton’s coaching has had on my life and, most powerfully, my work as a writer, would require the ability to travel to the depths of my soul – where HIS work reaches.
Before enlisting him, I had been pedalling around the ‘setting concrete’ sea of my procrastination on a dodgy toddler bike with badly balanced training wheels for more than a decade. The agony of my self-sabotage and blocked state was such that I was starting to feel hopeless. A cherished mutual friend of ours introduced me to Clayton and after an initial reading I knew that I had to do whatever it took to find the means to hire him.
It has been the most pivotally impactful decision of my entire life. His alchemical blending of intuitive guidance, incisive and genius practical suggestions on the structure of my book and loving care and support during the moments where my demons arose have put me in the position of already being halfway through my first draft after a mere 6 months. His industry savvy guidance on how to structure my work in a way that will increase its marketability has been pivotal in how I have proceeded and allowed me to step aside from my fear in revealing my story to a place of seeing how my books will be of value to others.
He has single-handedly steered the ship out of a harbour whose walls were tightening and threatening to smash the hull. His wonderful heart and openness create the safe space into which I have felt comfortable to pour my fears and old wounds and, thus, move past them. Decades of therapy failed where he has succeeded.
I have under his watch now expanded my goals and visions of future success into areas that were previously stratospherically unreachable and terrifying in equal measure. Not anymore.
Part wizard, mystic and mogul, ALL heart. I will be FOREVER indebted to his beautiful assistance and all my future successes will have been down to this incredible birthing of my first for which he was midwife, doula AND surgeon!!
If you are considering working with Clayton, beg borrow or steal to make it happen. I did and it is the best investment in myself that I have ever made.
Love you forever darling Clayton.
