Why Creative Career Coaching?

Are you working in the arts and unable to get the creative career advice that you need from peers? Tired of trying to work everything out alone? Do you feel stuck? Maybe you’re doing well, but feel stumped as to how to get to the next level.

When you have a creative career, there’s no ‘one path’ to the top. And the journey can be confusing and full of pitfalls…. What if there was a more efficient way?

Consult a Guide Who Knows the Terrain

Confidential guidance – from someone who’s been there, understands, and who’s coached others to major success − can help you get past those block and pitfalls, helping you reach your true creative and commercial potential. Creative career coaching means that together we can:

  • free up your creative process
  • foster creative well-being for the long term
  • clarify your goals and career aspirations
  • find strategies and resources to get you to them
  • help you find the motivation you need in order to persevere
  • reframe, so that you can move forward

In addition, as someone who’s had an international career as both a musician and an author, I know many of the specific tips and tricks creative people need to foster a healthy professional creative career over the long term.
