Ensure Consistency 
& Style

Maintaining a consistent style across publications is crucial for establishing a recognisable brand and fostering reader trust.  I will work with you to ensure that your style is consistent while maintaining your voice and branding. 

Are your insights and writing achieving the impact you want?

For authors, the importance of clear, concise, and accurate writing cannot be overstated.


It's  not just about putting ideas on paper; it's about making sure those ideas are presented in the most impactful way. A poorly edited paper can result in the dilution of complex ideas, reducing their intended impact on your audience.


Miscommunication and misunderstandings can arise from errors and inconsistencies, undermining the credibility of your work. What is at stake is not only your reputation as an author but also the potential for your ideas to have the impact and influence you intended.


Working together, I will ensure your writing is executed with clarity, precision and eloquence to enhance  your influence as a writer: communicate your  ideas with impact.

Communicate your ideas with impact

​In the face of rapid change and complexity, I can offer you the support you need to excel:

  • Expert Review and Quality Assurance: With over 14 years of industry experience, I  have in-depth understanding of the nuances in research and public policy writing. I  focus on the detail of your text: checking grammar, spelling and punctuation; I apply consistency to the language and formatting, making sure it is clear and reads well for its intended audience.

  • Content Enhancement: I  recognise the importance of your writing and its potential impact. I  focus on enhancing the clarity and coherence of your arguments, making sure your key findings and insights are not just accurately conveyed, but appropriately emphasised for maximum effect. I  help ensure that your ideas are clear for your target audience.

  • Confidentiality and Timeliness: Building professional, trusting relationships is crucial to my work. Your work will be treated with utmost confidentiality, ensuring your ideas and findings are secure. I understand the pressure of deadlines in the academic and policy world, and am committed to delivering my services within the agreed time frame, without compromising on quality. You can trust me to improve the quality of your work, enhance its impact, and help you meet your deadlines.

"We were delighted with both the quality of her work and her promptness.... We also appreciated her suggestions to make our text sound more natural in English, particularly as the text was written by several authors not all of whom speak English as their first language. It is always a pleasure to work with Siobhán and we highly recommend her."

Here are the main services and support I provide for  multilingual English speakers:​


Copyediting is the process of checking and improving the accuracy and quality of written content. It includes correcting spelling and grammar mistakes, ensuring clarity and consistency, and ensuring the content is free of any errors. 


Proofreading is the final stage  before publication and is considered the final polish of the text. The proofreader's job is to  fix any errors  that may have slipped through the net during copyediting.

Plain English

Writing  in Plain English helps people to get the message the first time they read it. This service focuses on simplifying and restructuring text to create a clear, direct, and concise message.

  • Do you offer sample edits?
    Yes, in most cases I offer free sample edits of up to 1,000 words , with no obligation. A sample edit is a really helpful way for both of us to decide whether we are a good fit for each other. It will give you a feel for my editing style, and it also helps me to better understand what you’re looking for and more accurately estimate how long a project will take.
  • What are your terms and conditions?
    If you would like to find out more, please feel free to contact me using the contact form above. I would be very happy to discuss my terms and conditions as part of any project discussion.
  • Do your services maintain the original voice and intention of the author?
    Absolutely. My aim is not to alter your voice but to enhance it. I focus on improving clarity, coherence and readability while preserving your unique perspective and intention.
  • What types of documents do you proofread and edit?
    I am experienced in editing and proofreading a wide range of documents including academic articles, research papers, policy briefs, reports, presentations and more.
  • How long does the editing and proofreading process usually take?
    Turnaround time can vary depending on the length and complexity of the document as well as the level of editing required. I always strive to work within client deadlines and will provide a more specific timeframe once we have both agreed on the scope of your project.
  • How do you ensure the confidentiality of a client's work?
    I take confidentiality very seriously. I partner with my clients to agree and adhere to strict non-disclosure and confidentiality requirements for each project, giving you confidence and assurance that your work is protected.
  • What qualifications do you have?
    I am an Advanced Professional Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP).

Both of these recognised qualifications, combined with over 14 years of industry experience, provide confidence and reassurance to my clients.
  • Do I really need an editor and proofreader?
    Modern technology allows us to do a lot for ourselves. At the same time, even the most accomplished writers benefit from a second pair of eyes. As a professional, experienced editor and proofreader, I can spot errors or inconsistencies that you may have overlooked due to familiarity with the content. With over 14 years of industry experience, I can also provide valuable insights on structure, coherence and clarity that can enhance your work. The value of having a professional, experienced editor and proofreader extends beyond the cost. Errors or lack of clarity in your documents can undermine your credibility and the impact of your work.
