Change your story

Change your life


Welcome! Willkommen!

Buongiorno! Bonjour!

I’m Frances!


I am a coach & mentor passionate about helping musicians, artists & creatives uncover the stories, doubts, and self-sabotaging behaviours that hold them back from success on stage, in their art and in life.

With over two decades of experience in the cultural and classical music industry, I have a deep understanding of the environment, as well as of the struggles and joys that come with pursuing a life in alignment with one’s artistic and creative values.

As a certified coach, mentor and insatiable learner, I bring a unique blend of professional skills, strategies and experience from working with people worldwide and hold the space for you to become the author of your own success and life story.

I speak English, German, Italian and French and am happy to coach in all four languages.

So, let’s change your story.

It felt good to have somebody so positive and encouraging to talk to. I am more aware of the possibilities, and I’m more eager to react to them.

Frances is a very kind and positive person who will surely give you the push you need to reach out towards your goals.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Frances! It was very easygoing, and I enjoyed the process and discovery.

Today, I am much more pro-active and certain of my conviction to be my own best self and communicate that. I am working towards a much clearer goal, which is very honest, and I couldn’t quite put into words.
