About us

Crown House is an award-winning independent publisher specialising in education, coaching, NLP, hypnosis, self-help and personal development. Within education we specialise in professional development books for teachers and school leaders designed to improve teaching and learning and promote independent thinking.

In February 2014, for the second year running, we won the Independent Publishing Guild Education Publisher of the Year Award. The judges said:

"Crown House Publishing is the Publisher of the Year in this category for the second year in a row. It grew its business again in 2013 with rising sales in ebooks and rights in particular. Judges liked the way it exploited these and other sales opportunities, especially at events, and its efforts to ramp up social media work. They also admired Crown House’s moves beyond education into the trade. “There’s a great breadth of publishing here, and an understanding of the many channels it can sell through."

The publishing business is now thriving under a team of highly skilled and creative people who love working with authors to create highly informative, instructional, fun and often life-changing books. Our authors are our strength and together we have published bestsellers, award-winning titles and ground-breaking work in all our specialist areas.
