Creative Career & Life Coach Sessions Currently online

I work with creative business owners & start ups. My clients say I help them make time to do the things they love especially around creativity, the outdoors & reducing stress. Especially now in these COVID19 times I help you build & protect your business & career or develop & diversify your offer .

I am a lapsed potter & #incidental photographer. All my sessions are online during covid & I can help you use online tools if you need some tech de-mystification. #justask Have a look at my video on Protecting your business and creative practice during Corona

I help you find a Career path that really suits you & help people find or re-find their creative direction! If you need to generate income urgently … I can help. Book a free social media & business coaching review now, over tea and cake. I have done a lot of timebank work through the Guild, so just ask ! Interestingly my social media coaching makes page 1 of Google ! (mostly) & I work with a number of businesses to get their message out authentically on Social media. I craft a nifty tweet. Refs available :) Proud to be a #Pioneer member of the Guild.

My coaching experience has come through over 20 years managing & developing successful teams, commissioning affordable housing schemes, design & usability appraisals alongside growing my coaching business for 10 years, which I now run full time. I have a degree level ILM coaching & mentoring qualification from Loughboro Uni Aspire.
