‘This book is born out of the idea that it is possible to create a business that is heartfelt AND successful’.
Well, any of us who work in the well-being business know how hard that is, the heartfelt bit we are great at, the successful bit, in fact the business bit ... not so much. Helen lays out the traps we can fall into and I for one have fallen into pretty much all of them and then through exercises and suggestions shows how to reframe and move forward.
At 184 pages this can be a quick read. You can also dip in and out of it using it as a resource, this isn’t how I read it though - I read it slowly, jotting down action points as I went and stopping at the end of each chapter to complete the exercise. I didn’t always find the exercises comfortable or easy but they led me on a real journey of self discovery. I get how corny that sounds but it’s true nevertheless- my dog eared book with highlights and post-it notes sticking out of it, stands as testament.
I wholeheartedly recommend From Client to Clinic Owner, it’s written with integrity, knowledge and understanding of the wellbeing industry and us as practitioners - the writing has an almost lyrical quality to it and the language is accessible. Helen’s own experiences are peppered throughout the pages making it entertaining as well as informative and I really appreciated that there was no repetition of points made.
This is not an ordinary self-help book, it is truly worth your money - buy it and grow - ‘nuff said.Love Wellbeing

Explain in words what this book has been for me is not possible. If you have a mission a passion, you will feel so inspired and empowered to go ahead with your idea and unleash your passions sharing them with your clients. The book is really practical and step by step will guide you towards your business goal. Absolutely amazing. It worths every penny actually even more if you think what you will realise once you know how to do it.
When Helen suggested to write about my inner values I felt so alive and an incredible energy. That is the energy that will drive you to create and make your business becoming successful. Thank you again Helen Pinnock for being such an inspiration with your book "From client to clinic owner". If you have not read it yet, I strongly suggest it. Read and re-read also every time you feel lost.
When I first met Helen, as a new business owner, I wanted to do absolutely everything and as fast as possible! I knew I was going about it all the wrong way though and needed some mentoring. Through working with Helen, everything very quickly came into focus. I now know EXACTLY what I want, and don't want from my business. Instead of thinking that my life before this new venture was a 'waste', I now see it as part of me and a strength! Since then, I have renewed confidence in myself and finally the work is coming in. Thanks to Helen, I'm ready for it! I'd recommend using Helen for straight-forward, tailored, professional guidance. Thanks Helen!
"Helen has been advising me over the last three months with my meditation business. I am amazed at how much progress I have made and am really excited about the future! Helen is so insightful and her experience is so helpful for a new business. She has a real intuition for what is needed and provides exactly the right amount of challenge and support."
"I have really enjoyed my sessions with Helen. I can't believe how much progress I have made after only a few sessions. Helen is warm, friendly and professional. She has the ability to enable you to dig deep and discover where you really want your business to go. Through Helens coaching I have gained confidence and discovered a renewed vision for my business. I would highly recommend her."
"Working with Helen has been one of the best decisions I have made for my business. She quickly helped me identify my strengths as a yoga teacher, as well as offering advice and actions which ‘cut to the chase’ and enabled me to move forward with my marketing without any sense of overwhelm. I feel much more confident and empowered in my yoga business thanks to Helen. A very intuitive coach, Helen comes highly recommended."
"I went to Helen because I felt there was so much I didn't know about how to market my business and I felt overwhelmed. Helen helped me to get clear in my goals and vision. She identified quickly the things that were holding me back. Her intuition was spot on that I was hiding my voice and she helped me find the confidence to be myself. Since that moment everything has flowed more easily and creatively. Helen is supportive and challenging in just the right amounts."
"As a new business owner, I felt overwhelmed with everything I thought I needed to do. Helen helped me prioritise and challenged me to look at the gaps in my business. She is a natural listener and was able to pick out the areas that would benefit me the most with moving the business forward. I would recommend Helen whole heartedly."
"When searching for a mentor, I was looking for a woman who had run her own business, someone with an in-depth understanding of both the advantages and the pitfalls of running a company and someone who could inspire and encourage. In Helen, I found just all of these things. But I also found someone who is not afraid to give honest, clear and impartial advice. Even when I don't like what she has to say, Helen is invariably right! Because her advice is based on many years of running her own businesses, and making her own mistakes, Helen is able to see the wider picture. I recommend her to you without hesitation"
"I found Helen's coaching constructive, focused, clear and based on running a successful business; which is extremely refreshing in a field that is littered with buzz words and bull shit! Helen coupled her hands on business knowledge with an acute understanding of what my customer wanted, to deliver great back back and support setting goals to improve my business. We worked together to refine my business by implementing a staff training and feed back programme, she also helped me look at the customer experience. When I became pregnant Helen was an invaluable resource for me, she could relate to my situation and suggest realistic and achievable steps to maintain my presence in the business whilst on maternity leave.

LISA AND JANE
"We found Helens advice immeasurably valuable. We have improved our daily working and clarified our strategy which has impacted positively on our profitability and workload. Helen has a fantastic business instinct and approach. Thank you Helen we would recommend your services highly!"
"When Helen started coaching me I had vision and passion for The Boogie but wasn’t sure if it had business potential. Helen saw the potential not only for it to be a business but also, and perhaps more importantly for its success, the potential in me to realise this vision and turn it in to one. Her passion for my vision and belief in me were as potent as any business advice. And her business experience and approach to coaching has empowered me to find my own answers and ways through the inevitable blocks and challenges that present them-selves. She has through her guidance on business processes helped me get my dream off the ground and running. It’s been and continues to be an incredibly empowering and self-realising experience. And one that continues to challenge and inspire me daily. Thank you so much Helen."
"Working as a yoga teacher, our focus is on providing classes that will enhance our students health and wellbeing. It can be harder to consider our job as a career, and the steps we need to take to make it sustainable long term. Helen has been extremely helpful in appraising my work, helping me to decide what areas were less productive and what I wanted to concentrate more on. The sessions were enjoyable, Helen is very friendly and supportive, but she will ask you to really reflect on your goals and set you tasks as your homework. Coaching with Helen was totally worth it! Saving me money,recognising my strengths and helping me to expand my perspective. I highly recommend her."
