Working with Jani



Most of the people she works with have reached a point where they know they need to do SOMETHING to move forward, but they’re not quite sure what that something is

Her methods are specially designed to help you draw out and support your creativity, and to encourage you to move to the next stage of your own unique journey – your own way.

Expect a lot of simple but deep inner work, sensible techniques, exploration, open discussion and yes, some challenges.

What you can find here

This site is filled with all sorts of goodies and posts – dealing with critics, what your inner artist is and how to get in touch with it, or sharing the story of how I turned my passion into my livelihood – plus lots of free video tutorials on all sorts of common issues for creative people.


See some of the lovely feedback from people I have worked with here.

Jani also plays percussion & sing in The Shimmering Bees (a rootsy, folksy world music band with a tribal pulse) and I lead an all-women drumming group, The Djembabes.

  1. Don’t have much time in my life to be creative other than dance at the mo but you sound such a nice person, hope to do something of yours someday. Was interested to read about your all female drumming group – I am desperate to play and have a djembe but nothing much happening around Lancashire, do you know of anyone near here perhaps? Did you set up the drumming class yourself?

    Thanks and good wishes for a sunny funny day
