Creative Mentoring for Creative Artists
or Business Leaders

One of the main characteristics of being human that fascinates me is how imagination and creativity are at the very core of the best of our endeavours. Online Creative Mentoring focuses on your creativity and how to best harness the power of your imagination in realising your goals, whether you are an artist, an entrepreneur or both!

Online Creative Mentoring is different from coaching. Rather than focus simply on tasks or specific skills (as is usual in coaching) as your Creative Mentor I will work alongside you to enhance your self-confidence and energise your creative imagination in ways that will work for you. Key to my approach is that I offer a positive, fully engaged and person-centred relationship with you so that you learn how best to utilise your own sources of inspiration and motivation. As a skilled creative professional or business/organisational leader you work to high standards of practice and ethics. You seek ways of generating ideas and enhancing your ability to aim high and perform optimally. Together we can analyse problems and discover solutions based on your imagination and expertise.

Online Creative Mentoring focuses on developing your signature strengths to achieve personal, artistic or professional goals. Using Positive Psychology interventions and exercises I will help you to identify specific personal challenges, set objectives and establish emotionally intelligent strategies to overcome any hurdles to your success. I will work with you to best realise creative or business potentials, to work collaboratively with colleagues, and to achieve an equitable work/life balance.

Online Creative Mentoring is structured around an initial questionnaire followed by the first session where personal strengths, aims and potential challenges will be identified and an initial goal set. Five further sessions are then contracted that will focus on realising this initial goal . Progress is reviewed during session six and new goals and potential challenges identified. If necessary additional Online Creative Mentoring sessions can be provided.

Online Creative Mentoring sessions are 90 minutes and usually two to four weeks apart (by agreement).
