Specialised help for creative people


Do you believe to be creative you need more time, discipline and motivation? That it’s too hard to fit all the parts together and deal with the psychological side as well?

I am here to help YOU if:

  • creativity is an important part of who you are and your vision of what life could be like

  • being creative makes you a better person, and gives you joy you don’t find anywhere else

  • you’re sick of not creating, or not doing your best work

As your creative coach, I am here to support you, give you strategies and hold you accountable. I help you to structure your efforts, so you can direct your creative life.

Contact me if you’d like to know how we can work together.


My skills, training and experience

I began creative coaching three years ago. This formalized a role I've often played in my communities. I've completed Eric Maisel's Advanced Creative Coaching training. 

My training and work in adult education led me to research how to help adults grow, and how to break skills down into tiny parts. I have prepared and facilitated scores of effective sessions, and am often complimented on the fun, relaxing and learning-filled atmosphere I promote.

Two years as a trained Lifeline phone counsellor honed my listening skills, and gave a deeper understanding of what blocks us, the role of emotion and how people can transform.

I have a Masters degree with first class honors in the humanities. The research skills I gained are useful for satisfying my strong interest in the brain. This keeps me familiar with key insights from neuroscience and psychology.

Most importantly, I have a lifetime experience as  a creative person. Learning how to help myself has motivated me to acquire a diverse range of techniques and insights.

Stephanie you helped me so much! Such wise words and so intuitive...you’ll always be one of the main lifelines that helped me transition from stay-at-home mother for 10 years to fulfilling my creative dreams.

The worksheet is amazing. It helped me to focus on why I write and how I feel about it. You were informative without being tedious or boring. I loved the simple way you explained the intricacies of editing. Many thanks.
