About us

Crown House Publishing is a rapidly growing publishing house specialising in the areas of Education, Coaching, Business Training and Development, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Counselling, Self Help, Mind Body Spirit and Personal Growth.

In 2019, 2020 and 2022 we were shortlisted for the Independent Publishing Guild Education Publisher of the Year Award. In 2020 the judges’ comments were:

"Crown House Publishing is shortlisted after a record year of sales and profits. It had a high hit rate for its frontlist publishing, and judges liked its pivot on marketing, which has seen it move away from social media and back towards direct targeting of schools and education events. Crown House works so hard to get the results they do … on relatively limited resources it’s a pretty spectacular growth story. "

And in 2019, the judges commented:

“Crown House’s commissioning is very strong and its individual titles’ sales are impressive, both in the UK and internationally.”

IPA Shortlisted 2022
