I understand the creative journey

It can sometimes feel like a winding road full of surprises. If you're in theatre, film, or TV, you're no stranger to the work-life balance hustle. 

But here's the deal: Every great story has its challenges and triumphs.

As a TV Producer, I'm right here with you in the midst of it all, and I've seen firsthand the incredible benefits this journey brings to your career and personal life.

As an ICF Certified Coach, I specialize in guiding creatives toward personalized strategies that reduce stress, embrace change, and drive transformative personal development. My coaching empowers individuals to harness their creative energy while building resilience in the face of uncertainty.

I use a holistic approach along with Motivational Interviewing, and Somatics. I offer powerful questions, reflections, tools, challenges, meditations, and a variety of exercises to help you deepen your understanding of who you are and what you need.

My coaching is all about helping you script your story


Years as an Actress

Community Theatre - High School Drama Major - George Brown Classical Conservatory - Hunting for agents - auditioning - choosing a different path. I understand firsthand the pressure that comes with working in an industry where YOU are the product. I've experienced the exhilaration and anxiety of a performance and the dread of having to answer the question "what are you working on right now"!? at an industry party when you are out of work. 


Years in TV Production

Working behind the scenes has shown me the other side of the industry's glamour—the long hours, tight deadlines, instibility, stress, and the constant need for creative energy. Understanding these dynamics has equipped me to assist industry professionals in developing strategies to reduce stress, promote well-being, and sustain creative energy throughout the production process 


Years working in Mental Health 

After reaching a breaking point myself, I pursued formal training in mental health to better understand how I could better care for my own mental wellbeing. Now, with a Diploma in Life Coaching, I focus on guiding other creatives to identify and manage the stessors they are facing. My approach involves teaching practical coping mechanisms from a tool-kit specifically curated for the creative professional.

Jess is a pure joy to work with. She is insightful, thoughtful, warm, and generous. I felt immediately comfortable in our first session and left feeling very inspired. Jess's ability to help you narrow in on goals for personal growth and career are intuitive and intelligent. She asks the right questions to get you where you want/need to be. If you find yourself asking.....what am I supposed to be doing right now? Jess can help you realize you probably already know, and give you the right tools to make it happen. Highly recommend!

Hi, my name is

Jessica McGann.

I spent over two years travelling the world solo, living in countries such as Australia and New Zealand, accumulating 30 countries (and still counting)

When I returned home I worked my way up in the film and television industry and am now a TV Producer having worked on shows such as All Round Champion, Blown Away, Big Brother Canada and more.

When my mental health hit rock bottom in 2020 I became passionate about learning all things Mental Health and returned to school to receive my Diploma in Life Coaching.

My holistic approach to Coaching helps you get what you want by channelling your strengths, challenging your limiting beliefs, and concentrating on your goals sprinkled with a bit of psychosocial education. Together, we will reflect on your past experiences, take action in your present, and create a bright future. Together we will create a growth-oriented aura around you, design implementable strategies, and fill your toolkit with skills that will set you up for lasting fulfilment and happiness in all areas of your life.


The magic is in you already. Lets work together to realize your astounding potential.

  • What is Coaching?
    The International Coaching Federation (ICF) defines Coaching as "a thought-provoking & creative process that inspires clients to maximize their personal and professional potential." me? well I completely agree
  • What is the difference between Coaching and Counselling?
    The objective of Counselling is to help people address and resolve past trauma that is affecting them emotionally and impairing their ability to function well in the present. Coaching on the other hand focuses on the client's present circumstances and mindset and works towards the desired future as defined by the client.
  • Will you tell anyone I reached out?
    NEVER. Every step of the process with me is strictly confidential.
  • Why do I need to book a discovery call before booking a session?
    This is a chance for the both of us to meet, chat and ensure that we are a perfect match for each other. Coaching is deeply personal work. It's delving into our mindset and emotions to find the solutions... so it's important that you feel that I am someone you can trust and open up to. It's also a chance for me to ensure that I feel I'm the right coach to assist your needs. If I conclude that I'm not the right fit for you I will do my absolute best to refer you to someone I know specializes in what it is you're looking for help with :)
  • Where does Coaching take place?
    Currently, all coaching sessions with Jess are done online via Zoom. Alternatively, you may also request your sessions take place over the phone. Its recommended that you have a quiet comfortable space, free from distractions, where you are able to speak openly and authentically. Having a nice warm cup of your favourite warm beverage on hand doesn't hurt either
