I support you editorially, emotionally, spiritually and practically
as you birth your book and heal the world
You have read allllll the books…
Now it is time you wrote your own
You are a planet-conscious, heart-centred, highly sensitive, highly intuitive and visionary coach, healer or priestess
You are an entrepreneuse with ideas…
You are a quiet leader…
… and it is time to put all your learnings, teachings and wisdom into a book.
It is time to expand…
confidently and proudly
by writing a book that will spread your message far and wide
It is time to elevate your business, to assert yourself as an expert in your area of business, and to tell your story and teach what you teach – why you do what you do, how you came to do what you do, why it matters to you, and why it matters to your readers, your clients and the Earth.
It is time to birth your book
I specialise in supporting women who want to write self-development books and (teaching) memoirs
Your book is about your story, why you do what you do and how you do it, and the programme(s) that you offer in your business
Your book is about your life, your learnings, your teachings, your approach to life, business and wellness and your philosophy
I would love to make your writing and publishing journey a most joyous one, and one where you get to the end of it feeling happy and triumphant.
So… are you ready?!
Creating the business and leading the movement you have been dreaming of for months, years or even decades is now your top priority.
Writing and self-publishing your book can no longer wait.
IT IS TIME.
And you have found me, Laetitia the Holistic Book Doula.
I am here to hold space for you and guide you on one of the most exciting and joyous journeys you will ever be on, as you expand into the next version of yourself in your life and business and write and publish your book.
As an editor and proofreader with over 23 years’ experience in the publishing industry both in-house and freelance, as a trauma-informed clinical hypnotherapist and NLP, EFT, IEMT and Reiki practitioner since 2014, and as a Sacred Money Archetypes® Coach and a Business Coach since 2019/20, I combine all my skills and experience in my book doula offerings, providing a safe space for you to explore your blocks around writing as well as around leadership, money mindset, business and, well… life!
I work with highly sensitive, highly intuitive, heart-centred, planet-conscious women who have Busy Brains and therefore need dedicated space and time to get organised in their lives and businesses in order to write, around their energy levels, their cycles (including their creativity cycle), their families and their clients.
I have a Busy Brain and family commitments too and so this is currently how I help my clients best – with short and sharp writing/editing sessions, in my Writing Intensive, a 1:1 two-morning writing intensive VIP experience.
I am so much more than a book coach as I offer the emotional support in all the areas that might affect your writing – not just grammar, spelling and structure issues, but motherhood, business, money, current emotions, past emotions and trauma.
I do this because I know that leading a book to successful completion comes with a lot of baggage from past emotional issues as well as very practical problems that need to be solved in order to create the mental and physical space for the birth of your book.
Over the years (since 2018) that I have dedicated to book doulaing (with additional money and business support where necessary), I have helped around 40 women write and publish their books.
Dany Griffiths is one of them.
I found it very valuable to chat through writing ideas with Laetitia and really appreciated how she would also follow up with additional thoughts on a topic we’d been discussing, as she processed the ideas further in her mind between sessions (the tag line for my book being a fabulous example of this).
Laetitia blends a lovely mix of fun, creative inspiration and gentle encouragement with practical steps for self-publishing.
Laetitia also recommends trusted people you need on your ‘book birthing team’, for such things as editing, proofreading, formatting and book cover design – all saving time and energy.
Laetitia leaves you in no doubt that she is as passionate about you getting to the point of birthing your book as you are, and although I did not initially feel like I ‘needed’ to work with her, I am glad I trusted my instincts as it was 100% the right decision to do so.
If we work together, I will take you, in just a few hours over two days…
from stress to serenity
from chaos to clarity
from complexity to simplicity
from uncertainty to certainty
In our two 4-hour sessions, you will make massive progress on your book and, if needed, release emotions, feelings, blocks and/or deep-seated unwanted beliefs, so that you can then easily take the next step and move forward with your writing, experiencing calm, clarity and confidence.
I will listen to you attentively and be guided by your wishes, desires and dreams.
We will brainstorm together, write together and edit together.
You will feel held in a strong, safe space, and you will gain momentum like never before, leaving our sessions calm and clear, with confidence in yourself and in your writing, full of renewed enthusiasm for your book.
I can’t wait to meet you and work with you!
EFT has by far and away been the most effective tool for reducing the intensity of my anxiety attacks and I feel so much better equipped to deal with them now. After my sessions with Laetitia, I feel like I can do anything and I cannot thank her enough. Laetitia’s wisdom and guidance is the best thing I have ever invested in and I highly recommend working with her.

The Birth Your Book Blueprint
Here are the 5 stages of the book-birthing journey. Where are you at?
Birth Your Writing Business
Before you start writing your book, you need to get to know yourself as a writer, get organised in your personal life and in your business, and know how to focus on the right things in the right order in order to make your book-birthing journey as smooth as possible. This will help you stay on track during the whole journey, from the seed of an idea right up to publishing day, and beyond too. This is where you will learn EFT, your Sacred Money Archetypes® (you can already take the quiz here if you want) and your cycles (menstrual, moon and creativity), as well as the whole book-birthing journey in detail.
Birth Your Book Branding
This is all about your ideal reader, and we base it on your ideal client in your business and brand. Because it’s all related, right? I take you through the Book Branding with Archetypes Blueprint® and you then will always be able to refer to it, never lose track of who you’re writing for and why, and always focus on them and how to help them. It will also help you choose words that are relevant to their experiences, in all your writing (blog posts, social media, book).
Birth Your First Draft
Obviously, this is a crucial part of the writing process (to write a book, you have to write!). When you write your first draft, you write your first draft. Nothing else should grab your attention. You are focused on just that. I am here to encourage you, to hold your hand, to guide you, and you can submit up to 500 words once a month so that I can make sure you’re on the right track.
Birth Your Book
This is the next part of the writing process, the actual BIRTH of your book – the bit where you edit and have your book edited, as well as having it proofread, and where you get your book cover and formatting done. You can do it all yourself if you’re a grammar and vocabulary nerd like me, and if you have an eye for design and if you can and have the time to format your book, or you can have it done (highly advisable!). It’s also the step where you start gathering your book-birthing team.
Beyond the Book
This is the final part of the writing journey – the bit where you release your book into the world, take it to market, promote it and hopefully see sales grow day after day. Obviously, without this stage, no book gets sold and all your efforts will have been for nothing. It would be like giving birth to your baby in the cellar and leaving them there for no one to see or cuddle. Heart-breaking. So do not stop at the birth of your book – go beyond and keep going.
Which stage of your writing and publishing journey are you at? I can support you at any stage. Let’s discuss your requirements, book your free 30-minute Connection Call below!
Anna Le Grange
Before working with Laetitia, although I had started the writing process, it felt heavy and uncomfortable. I wasn’t enjoying writing and I was avoiding working on my book despite knowing it was what I wanted and was being called to do. Laetitia helped me to recognise what was holding me back from writing and then enabled me to free myself from those blocks using EFT and other techniques.
I would say that the fears and anxieties that I held were completely eradicated. I no longer worry about what others’ opinions of my writing might be and I feel free to express what I want to say in the way that feels true to me.
Laetitia has also helped me to structure my book and break down the chapters into clear and manageable chunks, making the writing process feel light and enjoyable.
Anna’s book, The Mindful Breastfeeding Book, came out in January 2020.
