Philosophy:

Are you working in the arts and unable to get the creative career advice that you need? Do you feel stumped as to how to get to the next level?

 

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

  • reframe, so that you can move forward.

 

I’m the World Music pioneer and bestselling author who mentored street artist Stik from homelessness to international acclaim. I know many of the specific tips and tricks creative people need to foster a healthy professional creative career over the long term.

 

“Challenging, thought provoking and incredibly useful. I look forward to working with her some more.”

 

Methods of Working:

I work via Skype video with artists and creative people all over the world. Email support between sessions is free.

 

Specializations:

I understand your challenges

                                     

I’ve worked in the arts as a singer, songwriter, workshop leader, publisher, and then an author, for more than 35 years at an international level.

                    

I began my arts career as a child actress on the BBC TV drama ‘Grange Hill’, then became the lead singer of ‘Monsoon’, and while only 16 scored a top ten hit around the world with ‘Ever So Lonely’. I subsequently released a further 10 solo albums including four with Peter Gabriel’s ‘Real World’ label, toured the world with WOMAD and appeared on such programmes as ‘Later’ and ‘Top of the Pops’. Some of my other credits include a further top ten hit with ‘Jakatta’, writing a music series for BBC Radio 2, recording and touring with ‘Imagined Village’ and singing on the second ‘Lord of the Rings’ soundtrack ‘The Two Towers’. My first book ‘Banish Clutter Forever’ (Vermillion 2010) became a bestseller and my second ‘Organizing for Creative People’ topped the Foyles non-fiction chart.

I’ve been creative career coaching and mentoring for more than 15 years

                                     

I’ve mentored and coached artists, both in group settings and one-to-one - helping musicians, singers, authors and visual artists to break into new levels in their careers. Pain issues forced me to give up singing but as someone who has long worked in the arts, I understand many of the issues that you’ll face and can help you to find effective solutions.

 

What I love most, is to empower others

                                     

I offer a confidential and non-judgemental space where we can employ fresh thinking to create the positive changes you want.                     

I work via Skype video call and email, at a pace to suit you − which means you can work with me from anywhere in the world.
