After my time at University, I really struggled creatively, I felt that I had somehow used up all of my creativity, I felt bereft and didn’t really know what to do with myself.
I needed to earn some money and whilst a couple of potential freelancing opportunities had presented themselves to me at New Designers, I had lost all confidence and without the support of tutors or fellow graduates who had all returned home for the summer, I didn’t follow up on the enquiries. Reflecting back, I now know that I was depressed, suffering with anxiety and I even had a couple of panic attacks, but at the time I had no idea what was going on.
I had lost my way and I now realise that what was missing when I left Uni was a roadmap of my next steps. It has taken me nearly 20 years to realise this and a lot of personal development work, but I love a plan, it gives me purpose, a direction and something to aim for!!
So fast forward to today, What is my plan? What is my purpose?
January 2019, I have launched my creative coaching business. Throughout my corporate creative career in the fashion industry as well as during the few years I spent teaching a creative subject, I have taught, coached and mentored other creatives. It is something I am extremely passionate about, I love doing it and I get it. I understand all of the pitfalls, every day struggles and obstacles that get in the way of creativity, as I have come up against them myself, some I have overcome and some are an ongoing process.
I want to help other creatives avoid the creativity void that I hit and navigate the path on their creative journey to finding their own authentic voice.
So, if you are battling with your inner critic, procrastinating over a project, lack confidence, feeling uninspired or creatively blocked then drop me an email to find out how I can help you.
