Career coaching and mentoring to find your purpose, enhance your creativity and escape the grip of self-criticism.

For performers, artists and those working within the creative and cultural sectors, I provide a safe space to explore what’s holding you back. With the right mindset, tools and support, you’ll be free to transform challenges into opportunities and break free from the cycle of self-sabotage to express yourself and let your potential shine.

Together, we’ll reframe your limiting beliefs and help you reconnect with what motivates you so you can find creative joy and fulfilment and live a more rewarding, enjoyable life.

Career coaching or mentoring?
Which is right for you?

CAREER Coaching

  • Do you work in the creative or cultural industries either as a performer, artist or in a managerial position?
  • Are you an entrepreneur or professional with a creative element to your job or considering a career change or transition?
  • Do you feel your self-doubt is holding you back from achieving what you can?
  • Do you regularly question your career choices?
  • Are you ready to put in the work to make a change?
Coaching is the positive difference you need.

Rediscover your creative joy and confidence on stage, in your art, career, and life with my 1:1 coaching service. Together, we’ll tackle the big things standing in your way, create ways to manage your inner critic and give you back the freedom and desire to reconnect with your purpose and love what you do.

It sounds life-changing….


  • Are you a musical artist or performer unable to advance in your career despite your best efforts to promote yourself?
  • Do you want to access the tools to self-manage and market yourself to the people who count, including agents?
  • Are you willing to explore your inner critic and self-doubt as part of this process?

Master the skills to manage your career effectively, achieve your potential, and be seen by the people who can accelerate your success. My 6-12 session mentoring programme is exclusively for musicians, helping you discover who you are artistically, how to communicate this and how to use your network to build a more powerful presence.

It’s time to manage my career…

Hello, Ciao, Bonjour

I’m Frances

Whatever brings you here, I’m glad you came.
The creative life is a tale of two stories. On the one hand, it’s the best place to be in the world. On the other, it’s the most draining. It brings joy – and torment in equal measures, and I should know.

With over two decades in the cultural and classical music industry, I’ve experienced my fair share of joy and challenges and watched talented people around me struggle under pressure. But I also know what an incredible business it is. It motivates me to coach and mentor those working in the cultural and creative industries, including performance artists and musicians and those in management roles.

English not your first language?
Don’t worry. I also coach and mentor fluently in German, Italian and French.
