About and contact

Frances Ive

I have been self-employed for most of my career as a journalist, content creator, writer and PR consultant. I have diversified many times and  enjoyed the flexibility that being self-employed brings. Most recently I qualified as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language.

I also run the health and wellbeing website, Healthy Soul, www.healthysoul.co.uk for people who want to take responsibility for their own wellbeing.   I’ve written for a wide range of national newspapers and women’s magazines and also wrote the book Stress – The Essential Guide.

Evelyn Vittery, MD, Bloomsbury Communications Ltd:

I have worked with Frances at Bloomsbury Communications for three years. During that time, she has more than proved her worth and has given real value to the business. She is an excellent writer and communicator, who is able to produce work quickly and liaise with clients effectively. She is both reliable and trustworthy and I have no hesitation in recommending her.
