gwpic21My name is Gaye Wilson, and I am a professional life coach and editor, amongst other things.

As a coach, I specialise in coaching research students (at master’s and doctorate level, mostly) to finish their degrees quicker and easier. Typically, researchers come to me with all sorts of issues surrounding their candidature, plus life balance issues. You can read more about my coaching at

As an editor, I work with words to make sure they really say what the author meant to say. The sorts of work I do here include copy editing for sense, grammar, spelling, punctuation and flow; proofreading the manuscript before publishing;  and desktop publishing. Desktop publishing is an interesting term. It includes graphic design, layout, typesetting, photo manipulation, illustration, research, writing and a whole heap of other stuff that leads to a final (usually printed) product. It can include books, brochures, websites, flyers, posters, wrapping paper, greeting cards, logos … the list goes on. My website for this part of my work is at

Anyway, this list was intended to show that I not only coach people on issues related to productivity, but that I am also involved in the production end of project management.

I also have a lot of other projects on my plate. I received a PhD in Egyptology in 2002, and am in the process of editing the dissertation for publication. You can read more about my dissertation and other Egyptological research at

I also have two websites for one of my life-long passions: Girl Guides. One website is full of resources for youth leaders:, and the other one is about where I am a Guide Leader:

My newest blog is at, amd it is all about my adventures with fostering dogs that have been rescued from pounds and caring for them and working with them until they find new homes.

So that’s who I am and what I do. I do lots of things. Hence this blog.
