When you're not winning work, not only are you losing income, you’re feeling demoralised, and starting to doubt your own creative abilities.

Eleanor was editing for a news channel with little chance of career progression. She was apprehensive about leaving the security of a staff job, but wasn't getting the creative challenges or improving her income.
We worked together over six sessions, creating a plan of attack for overcoming these obstacles, building her confidence in how and where to look for work and making sure her CV and showreel was perfectly targeted for her ideal role. After a few months after our sessions ended, I received an email from her:
"Finally, I made it! I embraced the freelance world and I must say it is going better and better. I still remember our precious coaching meetings and all the invaluable advice you gave me.
Now everything is paying back. I am now developing my skills into the motion graphics field and I love it!"
