Mike Kavanagh

Creativity Coach, BAH

I am currently available for sessions via phone or Zoom. I am not currently offering face-to-face sessions.

You can pay for and book sessions directly in the 'Shop' or if you're thinking about coaching but want to know more, feel free to book a free 15 minute discovery call where we can discuss your goals and talk more about how coaching works.

At times our creative practice presents challenges, or perhaps we feel we are not reaching our full potential within our creative practice or career. Or perhaps we have specific projects which are stuck and need momentum.

 

Meeting with a coach can help bring clarity, help you define your short and long-term goals, and create a solid plan and help you build your motivation to continue moving forwards towards those goals.

A coach can help you see things differently, and build the confidence, habits and skills that you need to get where you want to go, while tapping into resources and solutions that are often hiding in plain sight.

Finally, a coach can offer a willing pair of ears to allow you to express fears and doubts in a supportive and confidential environment. You can feel free to express yourself without the normal fears of opening up to colleagues, peers, friends or family.

I am a certified personal performance coach who specializes in working with creative individuals. I have worked with writers, visual artists, and performers. I have a particular interest and speciality in working with people who cross traditional disciplines, perhaps working in multiple creative disciplines.

My practice is client-led, and the goals and direction of sessions are typically lead by the client. I will help you tap into unseen resources, and look at your challenges in new ways.

My original training is in film, and I have maintained a lifelong creative practice in writing, painting and music. I also have extensive business experience, and technology experience from my time working in the educational software industry. I bring all my experience to bear on my coaching practice.

If you would like to arrange an initial consultation, please contact me by phone or email. In our initial conversation we will discuss your expectations of coaching, and reasons why you might be seeking coaching. We'll also talk about how I work and when we might meet.
