Coaching for Creatives & Business Owners

Helping you create meaningful success by being true to themselves.

A holistic approach combining inner work with practical tools to create a life and work you love.

You know that feeling when things just flow?

When you’re being true to yourself and nothing can get in your way? 

Sometimes this happens by accident, but mostly it’s by design. 

What if you didn’t have to:

Sacrifice your fulfillment?

Discard your desired lifestyle?

Pay for it with your mental health? 

Picture a life and work that is uniquely yours. That taps into your talents, gives you purpose and supports how you work. 

A feeling where you love your work and love being you

Now imagine you have the mindset plus the strategy to back it up. One that’s created for you, that’s aligned to your talents, time and values. 

Wouldn’t that be nice?

But right now you feel:

  • You’ve forgotten what you’re capable of
  • Your work or business takes more energy than it gives
  • Tempted to quit because it’s not making the money you need
  • Confused by your offering or where to go next making you feel directionless and ineffective

The way I see it, working out what you really want and maintaining a mindset that allows you to succeed isn’t something that’s nice to have. It’s essential to your success.

Before I sought one to one coaching I was always compromising. My time, money, energy, mental health and sense of fulfillment always took the hit. It was only when I started working with a coach that I started to see the change I craved.

What My Clients Say

“Lucy has pulled back the curtain on what’s possible for me and my business.

I turned to coaching to boost my confidence, get me out of a rut and grow my client base.

Lucy has done all that and more! She is calm yet assertive; supportive yet challenging. She has an innate ability to translate my overwhelm into realistic, exciting achievable goals by questioning my whys, buts and negatives. She helps me reframe, reconsider and reboot my thinking and approach.

My life and business have changed for the better in just a few sessions and I’m excited about what’s to come.

She is a naturally gifted coach with an abundance of marketing know-how – the perfect business coach.”


Nicki

Marketing Agency Owner

“Lucy has propelled my business forward. She helped me gain clarity on how to market myself and my business, which methods work best for me and, most importantly, who I am marketing to.

My confidence has grown along with my business.”

Hannah
Healthy Habits Coach

Freedom and self-confidence – that’s what Lucy has given me. She helped me see I was holding back myself and my business with a fearful mindset – trying to keep myself safe and protected. Lucy helped me acknowledge my fears are not real – they belong to the small, frightened child that still sometimes lives within. Knowing this has freed me to move forwards with confidence.

Philippa
Mum & Baby E-comm Business Owner

“The sessions with Lucy have put me back in touch with the side of myself that embraces change and isn’t afraid to do things in a non-standard way.

Lucy got to the nub of things quickly, kindly and sensitively. She was quick to understand the kind of person I am and the things that have been holding me back. She provided me with techniques to get me started on ringing the changes.

Thanks to Lucy, I have renewed clarity of vision and purpose. I am planning to go back to her if I need help with specific decisions in the future.”

SC
Copywriter

“Lucy inspired me so much. I feel more confident, more empowered – I am excited for what comes next!

Thank you so much Lucy for equipping me with such valuable tools. You help change lives!

Yolanda
Sustainable Clothing Business Owner

“Before we started working with Lucy we’d only ever dabbled in paid ads. Lucy immediately put a strategy in place that clarified our key audiences, demographics and messaging.

As a result, we’ve seen our online sales increase significantly. Lucy was a pleasure to work with. She is passionate, honest and brings great creative ideas to the table.

C&O
Food E-comm Business Owners

“I find my regular sessions with Lucy extremely helpful. She encourages me to connect with my vision of what I want in life and then think bigger! I can trust her with whatever goes through my mind.

I often think an issue is business related but with Lucy’s guidance and support I’m able to explore its real origin and tackle it at the root. She helps me look at next steps and how to move forward. I am so grateful to have her as a coach.”

Anabel
Coach

“My session with Lucy was exactly what I needed to brain dump and focus. I went from feeling tearful and overwhelmed to clear-headed and calm in one very nice hour.

 

She quickly understood what kind of person I am and what’s been holding me back in different areas of life and work. She provided lots of techniques I can use to get started with some changes. It’s been fantastic!”

 

Juliette
Creative Arts Entrepreneur

Coaching helped me connect with myself.

 

I realised this was the key. Then when I started working with more female creatives and business owners I understood the struggle. Many had:

  • Constantly been doubting themselves and their work or business.
  • Realised DIY’ing their mindset and personal development only took them so far
  • Found themselves overwhelmed and distracted by comparison with others.
  • Spent a load of time and energy following ‘the next big guru or strategy.
  • Left paid memberships lying dormant, making them feel guilty
  • Looking outside of themselves for answers.

Most knew there was a better way, one that came from them, but they couldn’t nail it down (alone).

And let’s be real,  lots of things that feel productive are just distractions.

My coaching is supercharged with mentoring and practical strategy my clients tell me the effect is life changing.

It’s like therapy but for your work and business.

Introducing…

Will one session be enough?

One session will give you clarity on a way forward with one particular issue. If you feel you need more sessions we can discuss the next best step, whether that’s on an ad-hoc basis or using my boost or transformation package.

What about the full programme, do I need it?

The ‘Transformation’ package is an opportunity to work on you and your business from the foundation up. Throughout the process, I will be there to hold your hand and be accountable as you take action and make the changes you want to see. There’s no need to pause ‘real life’ whilst we work together, you’re able to have the support you need in a way that suits you and your lifestyle.

I'm so sick of being asked to 'invest'.

I hear you, it feels like there’s a million things to invest in, especially when you’re a small business owner. Five minutes on social media can expose you to multiple programmes and I understand it can be overwhelming. 

But, this isn’t the next shiny new thing. This is bespoke coaching that addresses fundamental issues as you work on yourself and your business. Coaching has transformed my mindset and business and I’m driven to help others do the same. 

To deliver results, I make sure I only work with a limited amount of clients at a time. It’s also why I’m very prescriptive about who I help.

Isn't coaching a luxury? I'll definitely have a coaching when I'm earning x amount

I don’t believe that coaching is a luxury. It is an investment, but it’s in you and your business. Waiting for things to be a certain way is an easy way to stay stuck. But working on your business – so that it can be a source of happiness and fulfillment – shouldn’t be put off, this is what gets you there. Waiting and doing nothing means nothing changes.

Coaching pays long term dividends across your business and life. The value it brings is huge. What is the cost of carrying on as you are? The best coaching is personalised and I only work with a certain number of clients so I can dedicate my time to you.

Ps if you are a public sector worker or a charity then I offer a 20% discount.

Where do the sessions happen?

I hold sessions online or in person, whichever suits you best. In person sessions are held in a private room at Ownzone in the centre of Stroud. 9, Lansdown, Stroud, Gloucestershire, GL5 1BB. Click here for directions

Is coaching like therapy?

Coaching can be therapeutic. Coaching is about moving forward and sometimes we do have to look at the past to understand patterns and behaviours. But, I am not a qualified therapist and don’t pretend to be. I am aware of certain boundaries and will always work within them. I can refer to a professional counsellor, doctor or therapist if needed.

Should I work on myself or my business (strategic vs inner work)?

It feels good to buy the next strategy, programme and marketing plan, I get it. But with cut and paste solutions, you don’t receive guidance that’s unique to you and your business. Plus, if your mindset and clarity is out of alignment these ‘solutions’ won’t ever work.

Working on yourself is the most important work you can do for your business and for you.

What is unique about your coaching?

Aside from the personalised approach of working one to one, my coaching combines key areas.

The blend of marketing, mentorship, business coaching and mindset work allows me to address multiple needs at the same time. There’s no need to work with three separate experts . Who’s got time for that?

Coaching connects you to you! Because being true to yourself is more complicated than it seems. A lot of the time we don’t know who we are. We are confused by changing identities (e.g. before and after kids) and we juggle roles (mother, partner, friend, business owner etc). My coaching allows you to really find out who you are, what you want and what your version of success is. Armed with this knowledge, we work together to make a business and marketing plan that works for you and your life.

Do you only work with women?

I generally work with women but I’m happy to have a discovery call with anyone who is interested in working with me to see if it is a good fit.

Do you work with companies?

Yes I work with companies to offer their employees support. If you run a company and would like to discuss this, book a discovery call here.
