One Hour Creative Mentoring with Fiona


Hi – I’m Fiona, and I am excited to be able to offer mentoring to creatives who are feeling stuck with their business or their practice.

Whether you are just starting up your creative business or you’ve been operating for a while, sometimes we just need someone else to talk through our ideas with, to find focus and direction.

You might be wanting to get more serious about the business side of being a creative, perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed and don’t know what to do next, or maybe you are ready to make some changes and need help making a plan.

I’ve been mentoring creatives both through my teaching at university and through my own studio for over 10 years now, I kept being asked if I could mentor others and so I decided to offer this service more widely.

This session is ideal for those of you who need help getting clear on what action you need to take to move your business forward. It’s not a quick fix - you still need to do the work after the session so if you willing to put in the effort and you want someone to you a push - get in touch.

What others have said about my mentoring....

You can book in for one session or if you feel you need longer term support and guidance then maybe a 6 month package will work better for you.
