Every part of you is welcome here.
Hello fellow artist, beautifully imperfect, creative human.
Your light, your quirks, your joy, your vision.
Your doubt, your anger, your fear, your resistance.
Instead of letting this come in the way of creating work that matters, how about we lean in a little more and turn it into something powerful?
Does this sound familiar:
You have big creative ambitions but you feel like self-doubt is keeping you from reaching your true creative potential and living a more fulfilled life.
You know deep down that your work matters and deserves to be seen in broad daylight. But it feels incredibly vulnerable and scary.
You want to take action towards your goals but lack clarity and direction and feel overwhelmed by the business side of art.
And that's totally normal because we don't create in a vacuum. Everything we experience and feel trickles down to our creative practice.
Deeply connect to your creativity and be immersed in your most creative life
Find focused, creative flow to birth your best work
Uncover more headspace, clarity and confidence to allow your vision to come to life
Reclaim the most daring parts of yourself and take courageous steps towards your goals
Unapologetically share your work with the world
Reconnect to your body and learn to listen to your intuition (I'm not scared to venture into woo territories, using embodiment tools, meditation, visualisation and rituals - that stuff's powerful!)
• Connect to the vision of what might be possible for you in your life and creative career
• Set courageous goals to get there + be crystal clear on your next steps (instead of second guessing your every move)
• Start to understand and heal the root causes of your self-doubt, so that you feel resourced to respond in healthy ways when your self-doubt is activated
• Gather your own set of tools and strategies to support you on your artist’s journey, because hand holding might be cute in a Beatles song but it won’t help you grow as an artist and human in the long run
• Design nourishing & aligned creative practice and habits that fuel your creative endeavours
• Proven strategies to cultivate solid self-belief and show up courageously in the creative industry and in front of your audience
• Design a sustainable art career and creative business strategy so you can sell your art soulfully

What makes different?
As a musician and artist, I know first hand how self-doubt, conditioning, comparison, limiting beliefs and thought patterns can interfere with your creativity and ability to see projects through. And as a coach, I saw this come up for my clients time and time again. This is why, in addition to my prior coaching qualification, I decided to specialise as a self-belief coach under Master Coach and Self-Doubt Researcher Sas Petherick.
Under her guidance, I have learned a proven self-doubt methodology, which has equipped me with powerful tools, deep knowledge and evidence-based approaches to be able to support you at the highest level, through your self-doubt.
My coaching expertise is also informed by my experience in the marketing and advertising industries, as well as my absolute passion for and three decades of experience in the arts.
• A clear vision and strategy for your creative career
• A much deeper understanding of how self-doubt shows up for you in your life and creative practice, and tools to respond in healthy ways when it is activated so that you can tap into your deepest creative potential
• A growing sense of your innate strengths, gifts and self-belief so that you can be braver in your life and work
In this space we explore you. All of you.
Coaching will take you on a journey of self-discovery to reconnect with the most daring and creatives parts of yourself. Together, we dwell in the uncomfortable, the messy, the uncertainty. We unravel conditioning, untangle stories, challenge the status quo, we push boundaries. We dive deep.
If you’ve read this far, I’m gonna hasard a yes. But here’s what you can expect from this experience:
A transformative coaching experience
I felt so scattered and lost when I started working with Marie, and within weeks I'd gained clarity, resolve and peace with what I wanted to do with my year ahead. The tools she gave me were practical, calming and so nurturing and the results I achieved were more than I'd expected. I have pivoted my business and am finally working the hours I want to, and earning what I need. That's made a massive difference to my life!
Marie is AMAZING. I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again.
I’m a certified creative coach and self-doubt expert. I have always known deep down that I have the soul of an artist. I've been a musician my whole life and have a deep love for writing and design. Creativity gave me a playground in which to explore who I was and express myself in a unique way. After losing my way in the corporate world for a few years, I got sick and flirted with burnout. I went through a journey of deep transformation and found the way home to myself through coaching and creativity. I now coach fellow artists to nurture a meaningful and unapologetic creative life so that they can spark all kinds of magical things around them.
I felt energised to set goals & take action towards achieving them
Before I coached with Marie, my personal and creative needs were the last priority in my life. As adults - especially self employed creatives there is little time for reflection and there is no-one but yourself to hold you accountable or stretch you, or encourage you to think differently.
Since working with Marie, I've been able to grow taller, speak louder and create more. Marie has a way of encouraging you to question yourself to find solutions - understanding that the answers are already in you but don't know how to embrace them.
Connection, Creativity, Compassion.
Marie will surprise you with insight and intuition that will help you see yourself and own your story, so that you can step into yourself authentically! I have more clarity and confidence in the things I want to achieve and am less apologetic for meeting my own needs.
Working with Marie was a wonderful experience, and whilst I'm still at the beginning of my journey I feel very excited about what is to come. She has filled me with so much belief and compassion for myself that I feel much stronger now. I am very grateful to have had this time with her. I just wish we had more sessions because every single one was massively impactful!
What is creative coaching?
Creative coaching is basically life coaching for artists and anyone who wants to reconnect to their creativity, whether it's their full time job or not.
As your coach, I help you with every aspect of your life (emotional, practical, existential) and I help you navigate blocks and resistance to help you bring to life the body of work that is aching to be expressed.
How does coaching with you work?
As your coach, I'll invite you to think hard, feel deeply and do work to manifest your deepest creative potential. We'll start by you filling in an in-depth questionnaire to kick-start our coaching journey. We'll then set some goals for yourself that will take you closer to your big vision. I'll then be by your side every step of the way to guide you as you take small, intentional steps towards them.
How will we measure progress?
Coaching is not magical, and there are no formulas that apply to everyone, which is why every coaching journey is different. My coaching style is both intuitive and rooted in practicality. Some of the work we'll do together will be easily measurable, while other areas we'll be working on might be more intangible. All my clients have noticed a significant difference in the way they feel and think at the end of our work together.
Who do you work with?
I work with artists, performers, writers, creative entrepreneurs and anybody who wants to honour their creativity or reconnect with their inner artist, whether it is their full time job or not.
How will I know if we're the right fit?
I offer a 30 minute complimentary introductory call during which we explore what you are looking to get out of coaching. It's also an opportunity for you to ask me any burning questions you may have.
What are your credentials?
I trained as a life coach with I.C.F. accredited Beautiful You Coaching Academy and in Sas Petherick’s Self-Belief Coaching Academy. I have over 30 years experience in the arts (wait, does that give away my age? Let's just say I started very young!). Before becoming a coach, I worked in marketing and advertising and ran a successful freelance graphic design business. As for life creds, and to quote Freddie Mercury, "I've had my share of sand kicked in my face and I've come through"! You can read more about me here.
Enlightening, supportive, purpose-driven coaching
Before coaching, I was not sure how I would measure success. I didn't think it could make me change profoundly at this stage in my life.
I can now see my life's purpose. I have a clear path ahead with goalposts to aim for. Everything seems so simple now that the clutter of both physical stuff and old beliefs has been removed. With Marie by your side, you will feel safe and supported in this process of self discovery. And who knows, it might lead you onto the most unexpected and marvelous journey.
