Coaching & Mentorship

Coaching and Mentorship are at the heart of my work.

Drawing on thirty years of training others, collaborating, and work on myself, I offer a safe, non-judgemental, intelligent and sensitive space for you to grow.

I seldom give answers. I create space in which to ask questions. The answers you’re looking for are inside of you. I help you hear them, and be brave enough to listen to what they say.

Broadly I offer three ways of working.

  1. Momentum Coaching
  2. Artistic Mentorship
  3. Journey to Belonging – A bespoke programme for Boarding School Survivors (follow this link for more information)

What’s the difference between Momentum Coaching and Artistic Mentorship?

They overlap, but have different focuses.

Coaching is generally ‘bigger picture’. It’s about personal and professional choices. It’s about identifying your purpose and charting new ways to align with it. It’s starts with inner work. It’s about removing blockage and reigniting passion. It’s about empowering yourself to be who you most want to be.

Mentorship is more project-focused. I use my experience to guide you as you develop a specific project or a personal practice. I help you make your next professional step, providing an outside eye on the specific creative work you’re undertaking.

All my work is based in Self-With-Others, though how I use it depends on what we’re trying to achieve. Our objectives will be defined by you. It’s your time, your space and you make the final choices.

My job is to support you as you do.
