The music industry is not ok. Musicians are not ok.

Let’s talk.

Calling all musicians

How do you look after your wellbeing and creative process? How do you unlock your inner resources? How do you create emerging possibilities for yourself?

When we fell trees for their wood and extract minerals from the bowels of the earth to produce energy we enter into an act of violence against the natural world. In the same way, the creative process will take its toll on you.

‘To bring about a radical change in the ways of our life, there must be expanding awareness, and a great depth of feeling, which is love. With love everything is possible.’ (Jiddu Krishnamurti)

Bespoke coaching for you

As your coach I will work with you to optimise your capacity to enhance your self-awareness by calibrating experiments to your needs and working with emergence. I will support you as you start to delve deeper into who you are in relation to your environment. I will help you explore your experience of vulnerability, self-limiting beliefs and sense of isolation. My coaching approach pays attention to the wisdom of your body and intuition. It uses creative experiential explorative methods such as amplification, embodiment or the tracking of experience using sound and music. As your coach I will take you to the edge of your comfort zone in a safe manner.

Benefits to you

  • A non-judgmental, confidential space to explore vulnerabilities, challenges and opportunities
  • Deeper connection to creative instinct and embodied knowing
  • Stronger sense of self-esteem
  • A fuller sense of meaning and purpose
  • A more vivid way of being with others
  • Increased awareness, clarity and confidence
  • Greater psychological wellbeing

Together, we will keep searching for how you see, hear and feel the (outside) world within you; and that original idea may simply emerge, seemingly, out of nowhere. We will brush with the passing moment and notice how it feels. We will make space for your creative expression to step forward and let your most authentic creation transcend formulas, conventions and ideology.

Writing and doodling

I might invite you to write or doodle during the session, usually for one or two minutes. Mindful that cognition and emotions are essentially tangled, writing/doodling can help you to uncover what lies beneath the surface of awareness. Once you start to untangle the knots through self-expression you can change perspective, venture beyond your past, initiate genuine dialogue, consider a wide range of possibilities and explore solutions, while keeping yourself present, available and hopeful.

Practical information

Our coaching relationship starts with a 20-minute session (no charge). In this initial session we will discuss how we could be working together. We will be asking the questions ‘Does it feel right for me?’, ‘Are we a good fit?’ If you feel that you want to work with me, I will be asking you to commit to four sessions in the first instance. This is to ensure we can fully engage in the work.

Sessions are one hour, unless otherwise arranged. My fees follow a sliding scale depending on your financial circumstances. I am also committed to exchange in lieu of payment.
