How will I access the mentoring sessions?
Your mentoring sessions will always be one to one, so you get the focussed face-to-face time to really be heard.
We'll meet online via video call or in person if you’re local to Poole. The sessions can either be a one-off ‘Gentle Focus Hour’ or a series of sessions over a course of months.
I am committed to offering fully accessible and flexible services in my approach to mentoring.
Everything is tailored to your needs, and not only will we meet in these sessions together but I’ll also send a follow-up pack after every meeting with key suggestions, additional ideas, and resources.
Do you offer student discount?
Yes! I do offer discounted rates for students and those on low incomes. Please get in touch to enquire:
'Gentle Focus' Hour
The Gentle Focus is a powerful session, built to create clarity and set a path to reach your primary creative goals.
You can pose your questions ahead of the call and we will unravel some solutions in a comfortable and conversational way during this one-hour session.
You'll receive a bespoke plan the day after our session that will include key takeaways, observations and suggested goals.
A 'Joyous Journey' Series
A series of three 45-minute sessions to forge a plan and see it through together.
‘A Joyous Journey’ is an opportunity to have a regular meeting which can be a wonderful way to find accountability within your practice. I will give guidance, support opportunities for reflection, ideas, and prompts, and set ideas of work or briefs for in between the sessions.
Each call will have a follow-up, bespoke plan to summarise our key takeaways, observations, and plan.
You are also welcome to message in between sessions and I will provide support via voice memo or written text.

"Speaking with Lauren provided me the clarity and support I needed to move forward with my illustration goals. She is knowledgeable, compassionate, and insightful."
“My 1:1 power hour with Lauren was SO inspiring and I left feeling super motivated and ready to take action. It was clear from the get-go that Lauren had taken the time to look through the links and files provided, she already had an action plan in mind and plenty of valuable thoughts and guidance to share, this made me feel supported and at ease from the very start of our call. Lauren is warm and welcoming, we clicked straight away and spoke at length about all my business plans, thoughts, and worries. I truly loved our chat."
