My mentoring shares values and methodologies with coaching and so places trust in the wisdom of the artist at it’s heart. My aim is to support the artist in self-directing their work through deepening their own understanding of what it is or could be. Reflection, observation and questioning enables a processes of unearthing, recognising and exploring the specifics and significance of a particular work, body of work or practice. Consequently the nature and pace of development is unique to each artist/ collaborative team.
The neutrality of this way of working means that it is equally affective for artists/companies working in any or all performance contexts. My own professional eclecticism across theatre, circus, dance, music, visual/ performance art and architecture also means that I am genuinely interested in anything and everything !
I have been teaching and supporting professional creative practice since 1994. I am qualified as a Relational Dynamics 1st Coach.
