Intensive one-to-one coaching for writers determined to finish – available in three month packages or 90 minute one-to-one coaching sessions.  

You’ve written well before

but this time, it’s tough…

 

– The urgent and important always wins out.

– You’ve lost confidence in your abilities.

– You’re desperate to get unstuck.

– Imposter syndrome holds you back.

You’re not alone in feeling this way but one thing separates you from others – you are determined to take action.

Regain your confidence

"After a long career in which writing too often felt like an unpleasant uphill struggle, I’ve completely re-calibrated how I approach the process. Prolifiko unleashed my inner writer."

- University professor

Publish more

"Without Prolifiko’s help, I would have struggled to have gotten my book over the line. They were the difference between a work-in-progress and a finished book."

- Business author

Feel more motivated

"Writing was leading me nowhere and I'd made a decision to stop. For some reason I didn’t. Instead, I trusted Prolifiko. Now my own habits are simple.  Ordinary.  Everyday. I can't thank them enough."

- Novelist

Find the perfect routine

"Prolifiko encouraged me to reflect on my writing process and as a result I realized that a writing routine that had worked for me in the past was no longer working. I now have a new routine that is far more effective." 

- Associate professor

Unlock your potential

"Not only did I make incredible progress on my project, but I walked away with a writing practice, a keen understanding of the connection between my practice and my self-esteem, and a toolkit full of practical solutions for tackling my own idiosyncrasies moving forward."

- Non-fiction and short story writer

Beat your blocks

"I used to find the writing process daunting and even distressing, but the mentoring I received from Prolifiko has helped me rethink the way I approach writing. I now enjoy writing, have much more confidence and have tailored strategies in place that enable me to achieve my writing goals in my own way."

- PhD researcher

Supercharge your writing! It all starts here…

Sometimes it’s tempting to look for the magic solution, the one productivity technique that’s going to change your life and your writing for good.

But our research and 20+ years of combined experience tells us that productivity is personal. There’s not just one solution, there are many – we help you find the ones that work for you in the busyness of your life.

You need an experienced coach to help you find the techniques and strategies that work for you and your commitments. You need an expert who understands you as a writer and the unique blocks and barriers you face. Prolifiko coaching helps you:

  • Repair your rocky emotional relationship with writing.
  • Publish more and achieve your creative and career goals.
  • Feel more in control of your process and write without guilt.

Client success – Pedro

Pedro is an early career researcher and ambitious academic. When he first came to us he was blocked from writing after a stressful experience writing his PhD.

After three months, Pedro regained confidence in his writing process and discovered tactics to keep him focused and motivated. He said:

Thanks to Prolifiko’s coaching I’ve been able to experiment with various writing techniques and have realised how important it is to adopt different strategies at different stages of the writing process.

I have also been able to identify bad habits, and to develop a writing routine that keeps me motivated and interested in my research while minimising feelings of guilt and overwhelm.

I would recommend them to anyone seeking to maximise their potential as a writer.

Coaching with Pedro focused on:

> Using ‘quick wins’ to build resilience strategies – avoiding anxiety and stress.

> Applying  small step techniques to minimise overwhelm.

> Developing distraction audits to encourage focus and avoid procrastination.

Why Prolifiko productivity coaching gets results

Our coaching clients say our process works because we understand what makes writers tick, because we’ve spent a lifetime writing ourselves and because we focus on the outcome – your writing success. 

  • We don’t work with everyone. We only work with clients who are a good fit with our approach and will get the most from our coaching – simple as. 
  • We’re no-nonsense. Our approach is always supportive and constructive but you won’t gain value from a coach who’s a push over. So we’re not…
  • We’re not a talking shop. We know you want practical, pragmatic solutions to finish and publish your projects – and that’s what we offer. No psychobabble allowed. 
  • We’re evidence-based. Our coaching is grounded in the latest research in neuroscience, behaviour design and psychology and has been crafted over years helping and supporting writers.
  • You’ll never be judged. Writers put themselves under enough pressure as it is. We offer supportive and constructive coaching in a non-judgemental, guilt-free environment.

The real prize in this method is Bec’s identification, as a writer, with the processes involved in producing a book, setting ‘easy wins’ made for easy gains. Empowering stuff.

Four principles to write by

Through coaching and working with writers we’ve developed four principles which underpin our coaching approach. These are: 

#1. Honesty: Always be realistic about the competing priorities in your life – how important writing is to you and where it fits in.

#2. Data-driven: Gather insights about your process as you write. Never take actions or base decisions on your assumptions alone – trust the data.

#3. Experimentation: Play around with approaches and test out new tactics with a spirit of openness and curiosity. Never remain wedded to an approach that doesn’t work.

#4. Non-judgemental mindset: Observe what works and what doesn’t work for you without judgement and guilt.

Support to keep writing – long term

Prolifiko members receive a  subscription to Prolifiko Digital as part of their package. 

Available on desktop or phone, Prolifiko Digital is a self-coaching platform that works in harmony with our coaching programs.

  • Approach your projects in easy bite-size steps.
  • Track your writing progress, figure out what tactics work.
  • Manage all your writing projects from one simple dashboard.

Keep motivated, keep moving forward. Never miss a deadline again.

Client success – Jessica

Jessica is a first-time novelist with a busy professional career. She wanted to write a novel for years but competing priorities always held her back.

After three months of one-to-one coaching and support, Jessica finally found the motivation and routine she needed to complete a first draft. She said:

Thank you so much for your support over the last three months. I still can’t quite believe that I’ve finished the first draft of my book. Before I signed up for coaching, I’d been trying to finish for a very long time – years, in fact – so it feels surreal and amazing to have got there.

 I would thoroughly recommend Prolifiko coaching to anyone wanting to get a writing project done. As a bonus, through the coaching I’ve got more insight into what works for me, in terms of carving out time for writing, which I can apply to future writing projects.

Coaching with Jessica focused on:

> Breaking down her project into clear achievable sections.

> Creating a roadmap of milestones and targets to meet.

> Developing prioritisation techniques to provide focus and avoid procrastination.

Client success – Caroline

Caroline is a freelance editor and publishing professional with a career spent writing for others. However, when it came to her own writing she was blocked. She had lost motivation and was on the verge of quitting altogether.

After taking a three-month coaching course with us her productivity, mindset and self-confidence had all been transformed. She said:

Writing was leading me nowhere and I had more or less made a decision: it was time to stop. For some reason — and I’m still not sure why — I didn’t. Instead I trusted Prolifiko.

Bec is friendly and encouraging, and she keeps things simple.  And now my own habits are simple.  Ordinary.  Everyday.

I trusted Prolifiko – and I’m writing the pages.  And most days, that feels easy.  (Wish I’d found them years ago).

Coaching with Caroline focused on:

> Building a habit and moving from intermittent to daily writing.

> Techniques to identify and combat procrastination-inducing doubt.

> Developing resilience tactics to keep going day after day.
