I work with people one-to-one to develop their creativity and practice


I support people making specific artistic projects, with their professional development, and in living creative lives.

Artistic Projects

I help untangle resistances, support you in hitting targets, and provide accountability to get it done – so you can create the art you want to make.

Professional Development

Drawing on ten years of practice and with useful tools to explore, we’ll strategise and plan for a brilliant creative career. 

Creative Living

I help people align with meaning, purpose, and value to live more inspiring, imaginative, and playful lives.

“Warm and supportive with a holistic approach, Dan helped me uncover hidden talents and internal resistance with care and attention... progress is almost inevitable.”

A Picture of Dan Simpson speaking on stage

“I loved the way Dan fed back my thoughts to me. Not only does it make me feel listened to, but it also solidifies the meandering thought processes I have. Having it reflected back in a really intentional and gentle way is good for any creative.”

- Shirine

Let’s connect to explore how I can support you.

“Meeting regularly with Dan kept me accountable to my goals each week - as well as providing encouragement and suggestions when I needed it. I am now well on the way with my writing project.  With feedback and reflections , I was able to understand what was causing me to be stuck, and so move on. I know I certainly wouldn't have got as far as I have with my writing without Dan's excellent coaching!”
