I am a writer, coach, trainer and consultant who is passionate about creating resilience and self esteem.

My belief is that everyone has the potential to achieve, but that too often we overlook our own skills and previous achievements and don’t make enough of the resources we already have. This is why my coaching business is called Resourceful Coaching.

Thank you very much for helping us on Saturday - we particularly appreciate the fact that you were able to step in at the last minute. We've received lots of positive feedback from the families who came along who were all delighted with how much they got out of the day. Also we've had some really great comments about how the children enjoyed the activities and of course the chance to talk about their thyroid.’ (Creative workshop fat conference for children with thyroid conditions)

On Control Freak ‘…it succeeds in looking in a well-rounded way at the whole situation of someone trying to leave the care system behind and live independently. … This is in fact an unputdownable account by Holly herself, which many teenagers fostered or not will find entertaining and revealing.

Control Freak is compelling, and although it deals with some difficult issues it does so without preaching and in a sensitive way. I would recommend this gripping, fast-paced read.

Henrietta Bond connects with students personally and the issues that her books deal with are what many teenagers want to discuss. She talks frankly about sensitive issues. Students have been inspired to read the books because of the extracts she read during the session. A lively visit, with real impact.'

I have engaged Henrietta Bond's services for several years on a variety of publishing projects including our Annual Review, writing features for our monthly magazine and writing and editing books. She is a skilled writer and editor and approaches her commissions with enthusiasm and professionalism and has always completed the work to deadline. Her commitment to the subject matter is very apparent and she has been able to successfully adapt her writing style to suit the needs of particular publications and readerships including writing publicity materials, descriptive and moving personal accounts and informative guides.

Henrietta's creative input provided a fresh perspective for Child Safety Week. She came up with the idea of a questionnaire for children and did all the work around making this possible. She also delivered extra value during the day of the launch, giving around 20 interviews to television and local radio. As a result of her involvement our media coverage increased, despite the Week now being in its 13th year.

On Control Freak ‘It was refreshing to read about social care in a positive light and see the children who are moving on from foster care as capable young people. … The story could easily have felt preachy in tone… however it is extremely entertaining and though provoking without being contrived.
