Amidst these emotional fluctuations, you may find yourself contemplating how to effectively manage the emotional shifts associated with exploring various roles or engaging in diverse creative projects.

As a therapist specialising in creative clients. I collaborate with creatives using a variety of mediums such as images, colour, texture, sound, imagination and much more. To support discovering ways to cope with these intense emotions and seeking support in addressing mental health challenges commonly experienced in the creative field, such as anxiety, depression, and imposter syndrome. This approach holds the potential to led to breakthroughs in understanding and addressing the nuanced emotional aspects often present in a creative lifestyle.

Transforming Rejection into Growth

Rejection is a tough pill to swallow for any creative soul. You put your heart and soul into your work, and when it’s met with rejection, it stings. But what if you could turn that rejection into a stepping stone for growth?

Creativity knows no bounds, but maintaining boundaries is essential. Finding a balance between your personal life and your creative process can be challenging. You might be curious about strategies to establish healthy boundaries and prevent your creative endeavours from consuming you.

Creating art, screenplays, or self-tapes is exhilarating, but finding certainty in the outcome can be elusive. You want to feel satisfied when you finalise your creative work. So, you ask, “How can I find certainty and satisfaction in finalising the creative outcome?” In therapy, we can explore your relationship with acceptance and strengthen your ability to acknowledge your work. Getting you that much closer to certainty and satisfaction.

How to Conquer Imposter Syndrome as a Creative?

Imposter syndrome can haunt even the most accomplished creatives. You may question your abilities, your worth, and whether you truly belong in your professional world. The question arises: “How can I overcome imposter syndrome and regain confidence in my abilities and self-worth?”

Your peers are achieving great things, and it’s wonderful to see them succeed. But sometimes, you can’t help but compare yourself to them, and it’s challenging to genuinely celebrate their wins. So, you wonder, “How can I genuinely feel happy for my fellow peers’ successes without constantly comparing myself to them?”

Trusting in yourself and your worth as a creative is paramount. Perhaps you’ve faced setbacks, and your self-esteem has taken a hit. Therapy allows you to be more open and curious about the steps you can take to rebuild trust in yourself and recognize your true value as a creative professional.
