NeuroCreative Blueprint:
The Blueprint of You

Imagine having a science-backed handbook & toolkit for your unique brain, your unique requirements and your unique circumstances.

Imagine having access to tools and techniques developed from applied neuroscience, giving you insights into your capabilities and potential like nothing else, enabling you to meet your challenges, achieve your goals, and obliterate your stumbling blocks.

This is exactly what the NeuroCreative Blueprint is all about. It's the only 1-1 programme to create a handbook to unleash the possibilities of your unique brain, so that you can be happier, healthier and more successful.

What is the Blueprint of You?

We all have a Creative Blueprint, but very few of us recognise it, or the role it has in advancing and nurturing our creativity.
You can think of your NeuroCreative Blueprint as a way of mapping the ecosystem that goes to make up your creativity, using applied neuroscience.

Your Unique Blueprint Includes:

  • Your Experiences
  • Your Mental Resources
  • Your Physical Resources
  • Your Relationships
  • Your Brain Tool Kit
  • Your Nurture Regime

But Will It Work For Me?
Let's talk about you.

Why Do I Need to Know My Blueprint?

Knowing your Creative Blueprint - the blueprint of you - opens up new possibilities and choices.
 - Understand how and why your brain acts in certain ways
 - Discover how to lean into its natural ability to learn and change
 - Confidently navigate actions, reactions and interactions that previously seemed beyond control
 - Be more effective personally and professionally
 - Tap into enhanced levels of creative thinking
 - Understand how to support and nurture your creativity

Let me tell you a story.
It's the story of a smart, dynamic, creative professional.
Ideas came easily and energy was never an issue. Clients liked having this one on their team.
Deadlines were sacrosanct, and there was quite a lot of self-worth tied up in the 'can-do, can deliver' reputation that built up over time.
And then time went on. Life changed. Family and kids and mortgages and management duties happened.

We assume that life changes. That we get older. That there's always someone behind us to take our job, take our client, make us obsolescent.
The only thing that doesn't change, apparently,  is the gut-wrenching stress that comes with the curve balls our clients throw at us.... For some reason, that still hits every bit as hard.

Then one day, the person looking back from the mirror is like some kind of ghost of who used to be there.

No one really knows where the anger and exhaustion set in, It all happened so slowly. In fact, a lot of people probably didn't notice the difference.
Maybe this hardworking, competent, capabable individual didn't even see it happening either.

In our productivity optimised world, we don't notice the marginal losses, the death of a thousand cuts.

Somehow, the amazing, fun, creative job, became a set of manacles to your mortgage. But to start with, you had the bandwidth of resilience to bounce back. But like I said... marginal losses. Even the most resilient of us will eventually crack if they're not addressed.

We live in a world that values what we can quantify and produce on demand. Being a creative in an accountant's world is not easy. The stuff you can't measure is NOT optional though.

The importance of  how and why we can use applied neuroscience to promote not just our natural creativity, but also our resilience and effectiveness is why I'm telling you all this.

It will probably come as no surprise to discover that I was that professional.  It may not even come as a surprise to find that I eventually broke. Recovery was not fast, and it was not fun. And it took walking away from all of the things I'd previously loved to facilitate that recovery.

Now, I channel my creativity differently. I use it to intervene and give people the tools they need to 'spot and stop' marginal losses, before they become irreversible. I have dedicated years of training to building the skill set to make this possible, and the interesting thing about this is that I have changed in the process of doing that. I have developed the skills that I know would have made my life and work better when I was taking marginal losses on a daily basis.

These days, people ask me how I stay so calm when every thing looks like it's going wrong.... Or I have been put on hold for the umpteenth time by 'customer service'. Cos it's not always the big things that cause us to crack. We can quite often hold it in... but eventually, it finds a vent of some kind.

This is a pretty extreme case by the way. If you don't consider yourself to be at stage, great! Well done for being curious enough to check this out. Curiousity is an incredibly useful tool, by the way. It indicates that you've got an openness that would benefit from exploring the tools and techniques available in applied neuroscience, giving you access to more effective actions, reactions and interactions, day in, day out, personally and professionally.
So, if you're open to having that kind of resilience and resourcefulness in your life, get in touch. I'm always ready to explore the possibilities.

If you can show me a good enough reason to make me believe you're not creative... then, ironically, you are creative. Creativity is an aspect of our intelligence that is greatly affected by our culture and societal understanding of what it is. You are creative. Part of the blueprint process involves identifying, appreciating, and learning to enhance that creativity. 

The initial process takes 6-8 months, starting with an in-depth session, lasting up to two hours, and followed by 6 monthly sessions lasting up to 90 mins each. You'll begin using your Blueprint from session one, and we will add more detail to it with each session. The process wraps up with a final review and consolidation session, lasting up to two hours. 

We start with an investigation of your current situation, and what you want to achieve over the course of our time together. It is quite typical for the initial obstacle or problem to be a symptom, rather than a true obstacle in and of itself. So we look at your issues through habit archaeology & architecture. For example, we investigate which of the Big Six is in operation when you hit obstacles, or how your Goldilocks curve is impacted by your routines. Every single blueprint is different, so there is no checklist to go through here. However, you will learn more about how your brain works, and learn some 'advanced driving skills' to give you choice and control in your actions, reactions and interactions, at work and at home. 

Between sessions, you get to use the applied neuroscience tools that we've chosen in real life. This is a time to practise, observe and adopt / adapt new approaches. You have the option to remain in contact via your unique portal, which not only contains materials and references from your blueprint, but also has a private 1-1 chat board, so you can ask questions, make observations and stay in touch between sessions. 

Knowing your blueprint is a bit like turning on the lights in a dark room. Most of us never learned how our brains work, and quite often, if we were taught anything, it was wrong! So, imagine the difference it makes to understand more about the processes that have driven your entire life, and being given the keys to make more informed choices. Imagine the freedom and liberation that comes with that understanding. That's the difference it makes - it gives you choices you didn't know you had. 

It's not cheap, but the value you place on your potential shouldn't be either. The inital blueprint discovery lasting 6-8 months costs £3500. 

This is a 1-1 process, because of the very individual approach taken. Every session works specifically with your unique circumstances, experiences and goals, and is tailored accordingly. 

Yes, you can book individual hourly sessions. These are stand-alone sessions, and are not supported by a personal web portal. They are more suitable for coaching around a single issue or upcoming event.
