“My intention is to help empower my clients to unleash their highest potential, re-frame the internal critical voice and step into their power.”

What I do

The music, entertainment and creative industries are fast-paced, ever-evolving and often overwhelming. Coaching is the supportive and holistic process of helping another individual to reach their highest potential and move forward in a powerful way.

My approach is to help empower my clients by giving them the tools to set personal and professional boundaries, and cope with busy periods that can overwhelm. I assist those who I work with to move past any feelings of being stuck and encourage powerful and positive mindset shifts.

Why I coach

With 18 years’ experience in the music industry and 9 years of running my own successful music PR agency, in 2020 I decided to launch my Professional Coaching Offering aimed at the music and creative industries. My mission is to help others become the most authentic version of themselves and empower them with my support to move past any blocks or self-limiting beliefs that may be holding them back.

Through the process of asking powerful questions, holding space and time for the client to pause, question and visualise, the partnership of coaching is incredibly rewarding for both the coach and coachee. My aim is to help artists, creatives and professionals to realise their limitless potential from within, in their own unique way. When you step out of your comfort zone that’s where the magic really begins.

Who I work with

I work with music artists, creative, music and media industry professionals, and people who may need my support or are seeking change within their lives.

My offering

My offering includes bespoke one to one weekly sessions via zoom, 1.5 hour in-person sessions, group programs and music industry mentoring sessions.


“Working with Ruth has been a truly transformative and valuable experience for me. I am so grateful for the working relationship we’ve been able to nurture and the way it has already brought change into my life quite rapidly.”

“I would highly recommend Ruth to anyone who wants to learn some very important cognitive tools which can help unlock their creative potential.”

“Seven weeks coaching with Ruth gave me clarity and greater self belief in three different areas of my life.”

“I didn’t really know what to expect but it was honestly one of the best things i’ve done. I work quite erratically and find it hard to focus on things but Ruth helped me find some clarity in my thinking. I learned a lot about trusting my own instincts and listening to myself, I have a bit of an issue with being overtly critical of my work and Ruth helped me get to grips with some techniques to focus on positivity and reframing negative thoughts.”
