Creativity Coaching

SELF-SOOTHED. Self-EXPRESSed. LIVing IN FLOW.

Bringing your epic ideas to life doesn’t need to be a hard slog. Especially if you’ve been through trauma, or put yourself under a lot of pressure already (I see you, fellow high-achiever). After all, creativity is more than making Art: it’s the process and practice that fuels almost everything we do. So if you’re sick of all the stop-starting and ready to live in flow, let’s get on with it.

TIME IS NO ONE'S FRIEND

Let me guess: you were the ‘creative kid’ at school. Always drawing, writing, performing or making a mess in the art room.

Then after you finished school and joined the “real world”, you put down the metaphorical paintbrush in favour of a steady job, believing that you’d still “have time” to be creative.

But it rarely happened, even though you’re likely in the business of creativity (hello art teachers, designers, copywriters and creative entrepreneurs).

 

 

Now you’re older, that creative urge can’t be ignored, pulling at your heartstrings so violently that it’s hard to focus on anything else. 

So much so, you find yourself stealing time to work on passion projects, or even roping your loved ones in to go to art classes on the weekend (she’s giving *pottery wheel* vibes). 

You know something is brewing – and you’re f’ing excited – but you don’t know what it is yet. Or really how to make the space for it to bloom. 

As an artist and writer myself, I GET IT. I’ve been there more times than I care to admit – but I’ve come to learn that all of this is part of the journey. It’s what you sign up for when you choose to live creatively.

And it’s not all doom and gloom either. When an idea finally crystalises in your mind after weeks (months, or years), you feel invincible. Untouchable. It’s pure BLISS!

However, when shit doesn’t go according to plan – or the voices in your head scream ‘MUTANY’ – what (or who) can you turn to for support?

 

Creativity coaching offers you accountability, an extra brain and dedicated space to work through the challenges of your creative pursuits.

It’s not like life coaching where the focus is on who you want to become. But rather, it’s laser focused on what you want to make.

I’ve trained with Dr Eric Maisel – the OG creativity coach – and finished a PhD project in 2017, so you better believe I’m in this for the long haul.

You deserve to live in flow effortlessly, create work that changes your world and still have energy left at the end of the day to make stuff JUST FOR YOU.

So let’s give the middle finger to time and get to the heart of what’s really in your way.

I'll sit with you in the creative mud

Every creative project is different. Just like you, they’ve got their own personality, strengths and blocks. In these 60-minute sessions, you can bring anything you’d like to work on – including what’s frustrating you – and we’ll dig in deep. I don’t just give advice, either. This is hands-on creative support. 

Here’s what that might look like:

  • Ideation & brainstorming: If you’re setting out on a new creative adventure, but not sure if your idea is ready, I can be your sounding board. Or, if you’ve got TOO many ideas, we’ll sift through them until we find the one. I can be your second brain when your regular brain isn’t giving you the goods. 
  • Unpacking your creative process: Do you always get overwhelmed with options? Or have a million and one projects on the boil at once, never finishing any of them? Or do you feel like the work you’re doing is actually kinda crap? I can help you understand where your road blocks are and together we can tweak your creative process to make it better and more productive for you.
  • Cultivating a stronger creative mindset: What do you need to know and believe to live a truly creative life? How do you cope when your work gets slammed or worse, it’s nothing but crickets? I can offer fresh insights and new perspectives so you can turn the ship around before you run it aground onshore.  
  • Unlocking self-expression: Do you feel like you’ve lost your voice? Or maybe you’re coming back to creativity after a long, long break. Reconnecting with your self-expression can be an ugly process, but I can be there for you to bring calm amidst the chaos. 
  • Creative career mentoring: For creative business owners or artists struggling to see the forest for the trees, I can use my arts and/or creative industry expertise to help you tap into new possibilities and opportunities. Mentoring isn’t business coaching: I’ll tailor my advice to your situation and dish up ideas for how you can take the next logical step in your creative career.

It’s similar to other kinds of coaching when it comes to process. I’ll first assess where you’re at using questionnaires and conversation. Then, we’ll talk about your challenges, history and goals. I’ll give you activities, techniques and tools to use to push you closer to your goals. Plus, I’ll be on the lookout for any blindspots you might have when it comes to creativity. 

No way! The thing about coaching is that you only get out of it what you’re willing to put in. To get the most out of a 1hr session, jot down your thoughts about what you’re stuck on, then enjoy the rest of the magic that happens when our brains collide!

Abso-bloody-lutely you can. In fact, creativity coaching isn’t just about the work you make. It can also tackle how and why you want to create something. It’s perfect for business owners, career creatives, or anyone who wants to consume less and create more.

It’s not something you have to ‘do’ – it’s who you already are. Developing your creativity boosts your problem-solving skills, enhances your ability to express yourself (and communicate better), and – drum roll please – is how you give yourself certainty in uncertain times. The best part is you don’t have to go it alone. I’ll be there, walking alongside you, giving you practical ways to get shit done. I’m not talking about productivity either… I’m talking about pure, unadulterated, blissful FLOW. It’s all possible for you, but you have to want it more than you want the drama of not doing it. So, dear one, are you ready?
