Coaching for Creatives
Hey, I'm Kerry :) a coach for creatives and an artist/illustrator who's low-key *obsessed* with helping fellow creatives like you to reignite your creative spark, make your creative mark, and make the art that's been on your heart.
What is creative coaching?
Creative coaching ultimately helps you fulfil your true creative potential.
My sweet spot is in supporting established creatives who've lost their mojo in their career, to recover their true creative call, and make their creative comeback.
So whether you're a designer who wants to be a children's book illustrator, a creative director who wants to write or paint again, or an agency founder who wants to make music, I can help.
Creative coaching is not only a rare invitation for you to finally be truly honest with yourself about the creative life you want, but it's also the practical support to help you access that life and make sure it happens. So, are you ready for your creative comeback? :)
Your artist toolkit
Creative coaching with me is no ordinary, one-dimensional experience. As a certified coach and hypnosis practitioner (who also has 20+ years experience as a designer and art director, and first-hand experience of manufacturing my own planners since 2017 after raising over £21k on Kickstarter to get my flagship planner made) :) your accompanying coaching tools truly are tried and tested...
Who is creative coaching for?
I've helped journalists become bestselling fiction authors, Hollywood movie crew write their own screenplays, creative directors release their own chart-topping music and designers sell-out their first art collection at galleries.
So the 'type' of creatives I coach doesn't fall into a neat lil' niche, but nor do they need to.
Because what they do all have in common, is the fact that they're;
✔ ambitious creatives who are ready to commit to change
✔ go-getter creatives who refuse to settle for mediocre and just 'go through the motions' creatively
✔ determined creatives who desire more satisfaction from their creativity than they're currently getting
✔ high-achieving creatives who want to make their mark with their own art.
If that sounds like you, you and I should probably hang out more :) and by that I mean...

The progress both creatively and mentally is huge. I've moved my personal creative process on more in the last 6 months than I have in the last 6 years before that. Kerry is a shining guiding light!
I feel like a tap has been unblocked – I'm writing almost every day. Kerry is utterly inspiring and shares so many tools to help you with your creative practice!
Ways to work with me
Unsure what support might suit you best? Head on over to:
Why work with me?
Because I get it.
I get what it’s like to be an under-pressure creative and art director in the creative industry (when all I actually wanted to be was an artist/illustrator making my own art).
I get what it’s like to carry the weight and responsibility of building and managing a team as a business owner (while battling ongoing resistance from not wanting to risk ‘failing’).
Most importantly though, I get why our minds hold us back from fulfilling our true creative potential (through my experience as a certified, practicing coach, alongside my own lived experience of the same challenge as a creative).
And the best bit? – I get how we can unlock our minds and creativity too :)
I'm rooting for a world where...
The arts are valued (and funded) as much as the sciences
Pursuing an artist career is viable and encouraged (instead of being a 'pipe dream' to get over)
Kids see a viable path of possibility, purpose and success for themselves in the arts
Capitalism, the patriarchy and white supremacy have been replaced by fair trade and collective liberation
Climate change is reversing
And I get to draw every day :)
If this reads like your manifesto might too, I think we should be pals.
