How Coaching and Mentoring Work
What are the benefits of using a coach?
Coaching is a powerful process for people who have a creative vision bursting to get out, which they haven’t been able to realise. This may be because they haven’t had the emotional support and nurturing they need or because they haven’t had the tools.
People in creative careers often find it hard to access good advice and information from their peers – and end up spending their most precious years ‘reinventing the wheel’. Quite often they leave college with an arts degree or diploma that hasn’t educated them for the real world, or the business of setting up a successful career that will support them financially. In other cases, they may come from a non-arts background and simply lack knowledge about work culture in the arts or a well-informed network of people to consult.

What’s the difference between coaching and counselling?
How do I choose a coach?
It’s a good idea to know what you’d like to achieve and what sort of coaching you’ll need. It can help to pick a coach who specialises in your area of interest e.g. entrepreneur, life/lifestyle, creativity etc. but it should be someone with whom you have a good rapport. Do some research and get in touch with your top three to find out who is going to suit you best. I offer a free 30 minute consultation to help you discover if I’m the right coach for you.

Where and how do you offer coaching?
How long will I need?
Sessions last 60 minutes. The number of sessions and the frequency you choose depends on your needs and goals. For most people, a session every month is all they need to keep them on course. For others exploring their blocks or creative process, a weekly session is necessary.
When do you offer coaching?
Can I check in with you between sessions?
Yes of course! I’m available to email, and will usually respond within 24 hours (excluding weekends).
