Coaching for Creatives
Live Authentically - Express Creatively
Your creativity is integrated into your life. Coaching can assist to holistically balance your life and enhance your creative output.
The power of coaching comes from enhanced self-knowledge. Through using tools like the Enneagram, coaching can re-connect you to your creative core and illuminate the ways you block or dissipate your creative power. In this way coaching can inspire you, give you new skills, and nourish your passion.
Coaching can assist you to identify and manage life factors that may be pulling you away from creativity. Perhaps your financial responsibilities are drowning out your creative voice. Perhaps work and family obligations are exhausting your energy. Perhaps an interpersonal conflict is depleting your focus.
In a supportive, non-judgmental atmosphere coaching can help you to manage doubt, anxiety, fear and overwhelm. It can help you develop positive self talk in the face of your inner critic. It can assist you to overcome creative blocks and find the courage to leap into your passion. Coaching can aid you to remain centered through mindfulness and enhance your ability to create under stress. It can facilitate a balance between the pleasure of process with the need for product.
Topics for coaching may include: Life balance, Project support, Business creation and maintenance, Finding your creative voice, Developing self-confidence, etc

The Enneagram is a personality assessment tool for self knowledge and actualization that can assist you to reach your highest potential. It exposes how our personalities blind us and sabotage our deepest desires for a life lived with purpose and passion. Coaching using the Enneagram supports this investigation with engaged compassion that brings about a clear path to reach your goals on your own terms.
