Please note that we are currently reviewing and updating our website as we look to expand the copy around our education training, consultancy and advocacy services. Should you wish to follow up with us to explore support in any of those areas, please do get in touch using the same method as for our virtual business support services. We hope to launch our new pages soon!

Partnering mental health practitioners and education professionals to help shoulder the load.

"Emma has been working with me for the past eighteen months. In that time my business has seen a complete turnaround in productivity and sales. I now have a carefully managed marketing list, a detailed customer management database, a website offering rich content that is regularly updated, and a real presence on social media. What I specifically love is her ability to take on masses of information and make sense of it all without getting at all stressed or panicky. She really gets my business."

Welcome to Spillane Consulting, a Bristol-based company run by me, Emma Spillane, and supported when required by a team of Associate Virtual Assistants.

Our mission is to be that safe pair of hands for independent professionals and small business owners working in education and/or children's mental health - to support you with the day-to-day back office 'stuff' that needs to be done but can often be something that just continues to pile up and cause undue stress. We can also be a great second pair of eyes and ears for your business planning and review.

  • Want to give more to your clients but feel constrained by the continual juggling involved with being self-employed?

  • Excited about the future but you just can't seem to find the time to focus on moving your business forward?

Spillane Consulting can help you with the above and more!

While we can provide support to a very wide range of businesses (see who we've supported here), we have specialist expertise that we bring to working with children's mental health experts and professionals working in education.


We recognise that you may need a degree of flexibility, so you can engage us on either an ongoing (retainer) basis, for a specific time-limited project, or for ad hoc work.
