The Unicorn Factory is here to help you listen to yourself, trust yourself and be unapologetically you.
Our current focus is joy through creativity. Helping you feel more you by recognising the things that light you up, whether that’s through your own creativity or enjoying the creativity of others – or both!
Creativity continues to help me make it through a really tough phase in my life, one which made me loss my spark for a while. As I explore what being me looks like in all corners of my life I am creating spaces that help you do that too.
Whatever we’re doing I aim to help you appreciate and celebrate the things that make you YOU! We use creativity, compassion and empowerment to help you filter out the noise of everything else in this crazy world, find what feels like you and feel comfortable in expressing that in the way you live your life.
At The Unicorn Factory we value…
Connecting with our JOY through creating, crafting, using and gifting
Showing ourselves COMPASSION as we learn to embrace all the parts of who we are
Sharing reminders and reassurance to EMPOWER us to do life our way
When hubby and I moved to Bristol in 2013 we named our wifi ‘The Unicorn Factory’ and at the time I thought it would make a great name for a business… but not for MY business. Despite my love of all things rainbow, glitter & unicorn, I was too scared to have a “fun” name for my coaching biz I had at the time as I thought it would put people off 🙄
Fast forward three years to 2016, while on maternity leave with littleun I realised if I wanted to enjoy what I was doing it needed to be more “me”. So I finally got over myself and The Unicorn Factory became my biz home. It took a while to work out the mummy, day job & side biz juggle though and just as I was starting to find my groove in 2018 things started to go tits up with my day job & my health and The Unicorn Factory was put on hold…
After walking away from yet another soul (and health) destroying job in early 2020 I knew it was time to get on with creating some of the things I’d dreamt of for so long.
Being arty & crafty is at my core – from all the Blue Peter builds of my childhood to getting my degree from the National Centre for Computer Animation in Bournemouth – but while doing various “sensible” jobs I lost touch with some of that creativity along the way.
Now I’ve given myself permission for creativity to be at the heart of my career I can’t believe I didn’t do it all along! I feel like I am finally learning to be more myself in my life and my work, and I love that what I create will spread the joy and help other people do life their way too!
Join me for a virtual cuppa while I give you sneak peeks, crafty ideas and anything else I think might bring you a bit of creative joy!
