I am a creative coach, trained and accredited by Performance Coach Training Ltd and Relational Dynamics 1st.
Most of what I know of life and the world comes from consuming the arts in some way, whether through books, films, art, music, theatre. I use my skills to support creative people who make us see the world in another way. I have worked with English National Opera, Cameron Mackintosh, Siobhan Davies Dance, Society of West End Theatre, Chester Gateway Theatre, Oxford Concert Party, Chester Literature Festival, Studio Voltaire. I set up Catching Fireworks® in January 2009 to coach creative people from all over the UK, Europe, USA and Asia.
I understand the thrills and frustrations of the creative process. One day you are brimming with ideas and can barely keep up with yourself. Then suddenly, you hit a moment where despite all skills and techniques, inspiration, like Elvis, has left the building. As well as my writing, I dance the Argentine Tango, an improvised dance which enhances and contributes to my coaching style.
