Hey there!

My name is Ellie Bambury. I’m an author and Certified Life Coach for young people, focused on the clarity and power we can gain over who we truly are and where we want to go when we look at our lives from the perspective of a writer. From my 7+ years of experience working with young people, one of the things I’ve discovered is that we always find it easier to focus on reasons why we can’t do things as opposed to why we can. We are increasingly becoming more disconnected from the power of our unique stories, and are scared of how much we can achieve. Changing this is at the foundation of the work I now do.

Following my time as an au pair in France and subsequently publishing ‘The Big Sister Project’, I have developed programmes to help young people connect with their authentic voice. My talks, workshops and mentoring programmes are called ‘Make Way’, playing on the concept of each of us making way for our true selves to thrive.

My passion has always been in storytelling and the arts, and in 2016 I graduated with a Degree in Performing and Screen Arts, majoring in Writing and Directing for Screen and Theatre.

The process of writing, editing, analysing and reevaluating everything has given me a sturdy, dynamic set of tools that I genuinely believe can help absolutely anybody figure out where they are going in life, and make conscious decisions as to their next steps. I combine these tools with creative, interactive activities in my personal discovery and development workshops – Make Way.

If you’d like to get a handle on where this all began, get yourself a copy of The Big Sister Project.
