  • steps you could take towards your goals

Regardless of whether we work together moving forwards, you’ll get perspective on where you’re at and what you could be doing to get to where you need to be.

If, at the end of our talk, I’m not the coach for you, there’s no strings attached – we simply say our goodbyes and that’s it.

What I do best as your coach...

A life coach specializes in figuring out who you really are, what you really want and how to build a life that inspires you.

A career or business coach will focus on getting you to the next level with your professional life.

My coaching style covers both. 

As a creative…I understand the unique struggles we encounter in our working lives and the need to align our values with what we do.

As your coach…I can help you get clarity on what to focus on, finding work/life balance and getting through whatever is keeping you stuck (like overwhelm or ‘imposter syndrome’).

As a business owner and marketer…I can help you create systems that make a sustainable income, builds your community and feels right for you.

I offer 1:1 private coaching sessions where I combine awareness with vision—here’s what you’re doing today and here’s how to do it better tomorrow.

Our sessions together will be a safe place for you to show up with all the fun, messy and complicated stories and feelings that make us all human. Moving forward means straight-up honesty from me,  because getting underneath the surface excuses and digging into the real stuff is the key to freedom from what’s keeping you stuck.

Together we’ll establish development goals and I’ll be your biggest cheerleader, accountability & support.

Tools of the trade...

Who is Creative Coaching for?

My clients are already successful in their careers or businesses. They come to me because they have a nagging feeling that they could be doing more, and their current way of working is no longer fit for purpose if they want to reach a new goal or make a bigger impact.

If you’re looking into creative coaching, then you’re probably feeling stuck with your career, passion project or business. You’re ready to make a change and you’re starting to feel…

  • Like your ambitions leave you feeling periodically drained, overwhelmed & burnt out
  • You flit from idea to idea, lacking clear direction of what to focus on
  • Sick of conflicting ‘salesy’ self promotion advice that doesn’t align with your values
  • It’s too late to start from scratch (and besides, start what?)
  • Frustrated that you don’t seem to be moving forwards
  • Stuck on the hamster wheel, unsure of how to get off…
  • You have multiple passions and projects that you want to honour
  • You’ve started to ask yourself ‘what am I leaving behind’ and ‘how can I give back’?
  • You’re motivated enough that you know you’ll “make it” – you just don’t know where to start…

Maybe you’re facing a big work/life decision, want a fresh start, or perhaps you’re already in your chosen field and you want to feel like you’re working at your best.

Whatever stage you’re at in your creative career….then Welcome!

You have finally arrived in a corner of the internet that wants to help you.

A working life where you feel inspired every day is possible.

About me

Hi! I’m Charlotte : )  I’ve been a digital/ brand marketer, property business owner & leader of creative forums for several years. In my free time I’m a visual artist & writer. I’m now working on my Master NLP practitioner and ICF-accredited life coach certification and I’m a member of the Climate Coaching Alliance. 

Why I became a creative coach

When I was juggling a career, a business & family commitments I pushed my passion projects out of my life and raced towards an idea of success that wasn’t my own.

Once I’d reached my goals I was overwhelmed, burnt out and felt like a failure. I didn’t know what I really wanted.

Now I know what it takes to do work that aligns with my values, how to balance business with my passions and how to make sustainable income to support that work – and I want to help others achieve the same.

I believe that when we do work that really matters to us we do our best work. We do more of it, we feel good and we make the biggest impact.

There has never been a better time for us to start changing the game and role model what it looks like to be a conscious, impactful — and yes, financially healthy, creative professional.

If you’re ready for a lifestyle of true freedom and the ability to make a real difference in the world, then your next step is to apply for professional coaching with Charlotte…

FAQs

I’ve heard of Life Coaching, what is Creative Coaching?

Creative coaches deal with specific issues that creative work and the creative industry brings up. 

For example, balancing multiple projects and ideas, finding your passion-based community or getting through periods of self doubt, imposter syndrome and burn out. 

I understand the need for your work to be aligned with your values and purpose as well as make sustainable income to support that work. We will create a plan that gets you moving in the right direction and our community provides accountability to make it happen.

If your goals include optimizing and enhancing your creative work and passion projects as well as your career/ business, then a creative coach is the one you need. 

What aspects of my business can you help with?

I’ve been a digital/ brand marketer, creative leader and business owner for several years – so I can give you a holistic overview of your marketing plan during our coaching sessions and via email.

We’ll play to your strengths and focus on what you need in order to maintain a healthy work/life balance.

Here is a comprehensive list of areas of your business that I can support you with:

    • Pricing
    • Finance
    • Business planning
    • Technology

What is required of me?

We will be doing some soul-searching detective work to find the root cause of any issues preventing you from having a fulfilling, sustainable life, so your intention for change must be serious. 

You’ll need to commit at least 1-2 hours a week to work on yourself.

During our coaching, you will also need to be open to the following:

  • Journaling
  • Meditation
  • Trying new things
  • Going on an inner journey
  • Trusting your coach 
  • Being honest with yourself

What if I struggle with opening up to people?

Everyone is different, but coaching can bring up a lot of emotions. This is how we know the biggest shifts are taking place.

Our brain is a box of stories, some of them tied in with our sense of reality and who we think we are. My job is to ask tough questions and notice unhelpful thought patterns so you that can see them, challenge them and replace them with empowering beliefs that will ultimately set you free.

You’ll need to be let yourself be vulnerable and open for this to happen in order to see real changes in yourself.

What if the coaching doesn't work?

I interview people before I work with them to ensure we’re a good match and that they’re committed to the process. I help people get clear on the outcomes they want at the start of every call so they can measure their progress.

If we both agree that the coaching is not going to work, then I am happy to end the coaching contract as my priority is to help clients get results.

Is hiring a Creative Coach worth the investment?

This is an investment in yourself. What is your life worth to you? When you get everything you want, would coaching have been worth it? As your coach I thrive on your success – I’m just as invested in getting you to the next level as you are.

Let me know if you’d like me to send you testimonials from previous clients. 

I'm not much of a creative - is this coaching for me?

Creatives are people with lots of ideas and a desire to make them happen. If you’re balancing a career with a passion projects, a creative coach will suit you just fine.

If you’re still unsure, here are some examples of the industries and professions I coach:

  • Entrepreneurs
  • Other Coaches
  • Consultants
  • Film-makers
  • Artists
  • Writers
  • Musicians
  • Photographers
  • Web Designers
  • Graphic Designers
  • Content Creators
  • Marketers
  • Techies

How do coaches track progress?

We track progress on your terms. At the start of the call we’ll establish a coaching agreement based on what you want to work on within our time together. At the end I’ll assess where you’re at, whether in terms of action steps taken or impact you’re feeling.

Impact is measured on a Subjective Unit of Experience/Distress (SUE/SUD) in pre-session questions or reflective journaling prompts.

Will you give advice and tell me exactly what to do?

The role of a coach is not to tell you what to do.

You know your business, life, relationships and goals better than anyone else ever could. No one can run your business or your life for you.

As your coach I provide the tools, resources, perspective and the support you need to make informed decisions for yourself.  

Is coaching like therapy?

No it isn’t. There is a clear distinction between coaching, consulting, psychotherapy and other support professions.  

Therapy deals with:

  • Providing diagnosis and treatment for a condition/ disorder
  • Resolving past traumas that affect emotional functioning in the present
  • Focusing on issues such as depression, anxiety, destructive behaviours or addition

Coaching, on the other hand:

  • Supports personal and professional growth & success
  • Is designed to initiate specific actionable outcomes
  • Is future-focused

While positive feelings/emotions may be a natural outcome of coaching, the primary focus in a coaching relationship is on action, accountability, and follow through.

In order to get the right kind of expertise, it is important to know which kind of guidance will serve you best. Life coaching isn’t therapy – it is designed to motivate and inspire people to achieve more than they ever thought was possible of themselves.

If I identify that a client needs therapy I will refer them to another support professional as needed in line with the ICF Code of Ethics.

Is coaching like consulting?

Not usually. 

A consultant will diagnose problems and prescribe and, sometimes, implement solutions. 

With coaching, the assumption is that individuals or teams are capable of generating their own solutions, with the coach supplying supportive, discovery-based approaches and frameworks. 

However, coaching is a dynamic discipline designed to get you to the desired outcome. As part of our creative coaching I will audit your business and advise on potential solutions as a consultant would. 

Is coaching like mentoring or training?

A mentor is an expert who provides wisdom and guidance based on his or her own experience. Mentoring may include advising, counseling and coaching. The coaching process does not include advising or counseling, and focuses instead on individuals or groups setting and reaching their own objectives. 

Training programs are based on objectives set out by the trainer or instructor. Though objectives are clarified in the coaching process, they are set by the individual or team being coached, with guidance provided by the coach. Training also assumes a linear learning path that coincides with an established curriculum. Coaching is less linear without a set curriculum.

How much is your coaching?

I don’t discuss fees before our first call together because I don’t want you to decide on price. It’s your life, not a meal deal.

I based my price on coaches that do provide their prices on their website so you’re free to check them out, but I only want to work with people who really want to make changes in their lives. My prices value my time and yours.

Before I got my first coach I was put off by prices and I wasted years where I could have been making a real difference. I was an avid self-help and Tony Robbins junkie and figured I could do it all by myself. What I really needed, though, was the clarity that an alternative perspective and a listening ear could give me, as well as accountability.

When I finally took the leap the amount I paid meant that I was fully committed to my goals, and it absolutely paid off.

I made double the amount I paid for the coaching within the first 2 months of my business, but the changes I made in my life and the ongoing support I got from my coach and the community was priceless.

If you’re a creative freelancer or business owner, the best thing about being your own boss is that you get to invest in yourself.

If you’re in a career that leaves you feeling burnt out and drained, consider the value of what freedom and peace means for you.

What my clients say…

Cath C, Entrepreneur

I was feeling lost and stuck in my business (www.cathcoleman.com) before my session with Charlotte. Charlotte helped me find clarity on what to focus on and who my ideal clients are. She made me feel safe and confident to share my thoughts and feelings with her and has given me a sense of direction and purpose…

Whitney S, Business Owner

Before working with Charlotte I was lost and unclear on the steps I needed to take in my business and after our time together I feel inspired and energized. She has a gentle, calming way about her while also being very motivating. She holds a safe space to express emotions, I highly recommend her!

Chandra W. Music Composer

Charlotte’s deep understanding of the human potential, her kindness, expertly studied approach and level-headedness greatly benefited me when I was stuck in a creative rut. I now have a website, portfolio & paying clients. I HIGHLY recommend her coaching services.

Rachel B. Vocalist & Admin at BIMM

Charlotte is a great source of clear, honest advice. She has helped me see the value I bring so that I had confidence to progress in my career, which helped me financially. She is dedicated to helping. It’s rare to find someone so talented in many areas of the creative industry! 😀

Elspeth P, Producer/Director

You’re brilliant because you understand – you are a creative and you have great empathy for other creatives. You’re the perfect person to communicate with so thank you. I’m starting to feel that I’m getting my voice into my marketing at last. It’s as though I’m just to starting to get what marketing is about.
