Do you need help in transforming your passion into a business? We can help.

Don’t hesitate, get in touch today!


We understand that being your own boss is very rewarding but can be very lonely and challenging at the same time. Sometimes all you need is a sounding board for your ideas! A coach and a mentor is someone you can trust, and who understands the sector and helps, guides and supports you on your journey.


Working with a business coach or mentor helps focus on the business side of the creative process, bringing accountability to your actions.


Our services are tailored to your needs. No two clients are the same. So we offer a 15 minute free consultation for you to gauge my style of working and for me to get an idea about you and your needs.

As well as offering these services to everyone, I am passionate about working with women! I want to help bring as many women into the workforce as possible. I believe that we, as women, have a latent economic power just waiting to be unleashed. As a business woman, a working mother, I understand the challenges that come with the territory. As your coach or mentor, I can help you realise your potential and achieve your goals.

I bring over 25 years of professional and business experience. I established and successfully ran my own HR and training business overseas. My corporate experience spreads over two decades and brings commercial acumen, alongside strong financial discipline. In addition, my experience of founding and establishing Artisanry Co., puts me in a unique position to also understand the idiosyncrasies of this sector, allowing me to share this commercial experience of running a creative business with you.

Beth Renton - Wee Beauties

I told Bhawna about my business and she was able to find out the areas from which I thought I was struggling and could do better. She came up with so many great ideas and suggestions every time and when we ended a meeting, my head was buzzing with inspiration on what I needed to do next. At the start of coaching, I was quite hesitant I didn’t know what to expect but this was certainly a positive experience for me. Bhawna’s coaching style is relaxed and friendly but also encouraging so if I did stray from my original goals, she was able to nudge me back and remind me what I wanted to achieve. I feel like some of my goals have been achieved but they are ongoing and so it’s up to me to make sure they remain in place.”

“I have been having business mentoring sessions with Bhawna from Artisanry Co for the past couple of months. The sessions have really helped me to focus on, and document, my yearly, quarterly and long term goals in my business. We have also worked on identifying the practical steps to achieve those goals. Bhawna is extremely knowledgeable about business and is a fantastic person to work with.”

Rilla - Rills Leatherwork

“With Bhawna’s coaching I was able to better structure my goals and workflow. Her guidance was gentle but focused, allowing me to come to realisations on my own rather than being told what to do all the time. She was patient and understanding of the difficulties I was facing at the time, and even though I was unable to complete my training due to health reasons, the information I received was an invaluable tool in helping me progress with my business.”


“My experience being coached has been remarkable, the sessions with my coach has been a catalyst in helping me put in place processes/actions to achieve my goals. Bhawna has guided me towards recognising how to break long term goals into short-term achievable goals and not make them feel overwhelming. The various questioning techniques used during my sessions helps me think about opportunities which would enable me to develop professionally and achieve my short-term goals, it also enables me to be more reflective of my actions and seeks out feedback where possible.  This has push me out of my comfort zone.”

What is Coaching?

Coaching is a form of learning where a coach facilitates development of a client. Coaching is non-directive, very much a facilitation process aimed to help the client define and achieve their goals.

What is mentoring?

Unlike a coach, a mentor can come from the same industry as the mentee and has industry experience to guide the mentee in their professional development. Mentoring is directive and leverages the professional experience of the mentor.

Coaching and mentoring sound similar? Is there a difference really?

Coaching and mentoring are similar but not the same! 

A mentor will leverage their shared experience of the subject and guide a  client. 

Whereas, a coach will help focus the client to find their own path.

What are the benefits of coaching and/or mentoring? Why do I need to spend this money?

A coach or a mentor is someone who acts as a ‘conscience and a guide’ to help you realise your potential. Someone who believes in your ability and helps you develop your confidence. They are a sounding board for your problems and be someone to discuss issues, blockages and concerns with in your career or personal development.
