Creatives Collective


Come learn and grow along a community of like-minded artists and creatives  just like you

Are you sick of self-doubt holding you back and having to figure out creative living on your own?

I have imagined this virtual room of our own as a space to connect, experiment, learn & grow as an artist and human. The idea is for this community of like-minded humans to support you to create fiercely, share generously and connect wholeheartedly. Wherever you're at on your creative journey, know that you are welcome exactly as you are. This is a space of radical acceptance.

It is free to join, or you have the choice to make an optional once-off donation, so that you can benefit from this supportive space no matter your income levels.

The CCC Community


The Courageous Creatives Collective Workshops are events for artists and creatives held by me on the first Thursday of every month to coincide with Cape Town's First Thursdays (a celebration of arts and culture until late at night, with galleries and cultural events celebrating talent and creativity throughout the city).
When you sign up to be part of the Collective, you'll automatically receive all the details to attend.

These workshops are hosted online so you can attend no matter where you are in the world, and a recording will be available afterwards if you can’t make it live. 

These gatherings are a judgment-free space where you can explore all things business, creativity, inner leadership and self-belief, and where we get to create a new kind of paradigm for us creatives. There will be opportunities for you to ask questions, share your challenges and wins (nothing is too small) or simply spend a good time in excellent company!

Once you have created your account, you get access to the full library of past workshop replays.

The 6 Ps of self-doubt


Because I believe the world needs more fulfilled and self-actualised artists who use their creativity to shape the communities we want to live in.

I’m a certified self-belief coach for artists and creatives with self-doubt. I am a musician, lover of art and words, and a loud car singer. I’m a big thinker and even bigger feeler who needs loads of alone time to recharge but love to be in the company of like-minded souls.

After 3 decades in the arts, I know first hand how self-doubt, conditioning, comparison and limiting beliefs can interfere with your creativity and wellbeing, and ability to see projects through.

And I'm on a mission to change that.

"I had a session with Marie and can honestly say it provided so much focus, clarity and a level of peace I had desperately been seeking! Being a creative on your own can be a very lonely & isolating experience."

"I've been able to express who I am with confidence, and to challenge the negative beliefs I've been holding. I didn't think I would be able to access these feelings of strength, stability and confidence within myself for a very long time. Coaching with Marie is a real gift. She knows the questions to ask, and the tools to offer you and she isn't afraid to dwell in the uncomfortable areas with you."
