Claire Gillman - Authoring and Mentoring Services

Welcome to my website

I am delighted to say that the new digital edition of You and Your Ageing Parents: How to Balance Your Needs and Theirs is now available. It has been fully updated and revised for this release and is also available as a paperback. This is a great guide for those who find themselves trying to juggle busy lives, perhaps also raising a young family, and dealing with older parents who are becoming increasingly reliant. It's a practical guide that is based on my own experiences supported by the advice of experts in the field and the experiences of others who find themselves in that very situation.

Review of Relaxation and Writing Course, Urbino, Italy

Extract from The Times

'The whole gentle pace of the week, the lack of distraction and the autumnal landscape created a splendid space both mentally and physically to buckle down to a creative writing project. We would chat about our work with each other and Gillman was always on hand for valuable one-to-one tuition.'

Nick Wyke, The Times, 8th Feb 2011
