“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive…” – Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth
“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts…” – William Shakespeare, As You Like It
Formerly an actress, I am a Master Coach to top level creatives, helping them develop creativity, resilience and well-being.
My clients are very successful and highly innovative men and women in the creative industries. Generally, they are at the stage of mid-life (35-55 yrs) where they have reached a crossroads fuelled by anxiety and self-doubt; They can keep doing what they’ve been doing – it’s got them very far and yet they’re not satisfied, they feel empty – or they can reconnect with their passion and follow that nagging feeling or voice within them that is calling them to be more, to create in greater ways.
These are people who score high on achievement and not so high on fulfilment. They feel some form of disconnection from their work and perhaps the world around them. They are often experiencing a wonderful and beautiful life largely as time passing them by, with a deep sense that they are not fulfilling their creative potential coupled with a fear and a doubt – maybe even a dread – that they ever will, either because of time running out and/or because of a secret belief that they’re not good enough (despite their proven track record of success).
I work with them in specific tailor made ways to dispel these myths, dissolve the illusions and blocks that are holding them back and create alignment, leaving them free to connect with themselves in deeper ways, free to experience their potential, free to innovate in more surprising and exciting ways, free to create powerfully and courageously in ways that are more meaningful, satisfying and fulfilling for them.
The beauty of this work is that changes made in one area of life tend to generalise over all areas of life. So whilst the focus may be on their work and their career, my clients report experiencing a deeper connection with their partners, family and friends and a feeling of peace, joy and engagement with life that is far richer than they ever imagined possible.
I work with leaders in the arts (film, tv, theatre), media, music and fashion industries, together with cutting edge entrepreneurs.
