Welcome to Inkpots

I’m Gill.

I’m a mentor, trainer and editor and, since 2013, the founder of Inkpots.

I’m also a mum.

I know that, amidst all the pressures and noise surrounding young people, what really matters is their happiness.

Unhappy teenagers rarely work to their best abilities. Feeling miserable doesn’t lead to confident decisions. Anxiety never makes you feel great.

My mentoring approach is calm and gentle. The first step is to help a young person feel safe. Then – and only then – can we move on to building trust. And that’s when we start to see results.

I have worked with hundreds of young people and have many years’ experience.

But what matters here is your child, your student.

I always start with an initial chat. Let’s make a connection. You can contact me here.
