mindset & strategy mentor for wholehearted creatives in business
Through Creativity Coaching, I help surface pattern designs, artists, & countless other creatives untangle the spaghetti in your brain so you can stop feeling stuck and start taking powerful actions to turn their passions into a profitable business.
It might seem like a luxury, but a good creativity coach can help you see yourself and others more clearly, work towards the goals you’ve set and act as an excellent sounding board.
Whether you’re just at the stage of contemplating a leap into a creative field or already have an established creative business, a creativity coach is a great investment in yourself – and your business.
Think about the most creative people you know.
How did they achieve all their great works?
If you look carefully, these people had a sort of support system; a mentor, or simply someone who always cheered them on.
This is what a creativity coach does.
A Creativity coach is someone who helps you reconnect with your creative efforts and passions that are already inside you, you’ll be able to envision your dreams and come up with creative ways to make them come true. It’s you, not the coach, that does the work. And the coach knows how to get you there.
A coach is someone who offers guidance and training to help you develop both personally and professionally, and work towards specific goals you want to reach.
Creative Coaching brings you the clarity, the belief and the motivation you need to make a living from your talent, as well as helping you to further develop your creative skills and work through any barriers holding you back from actualising your dreams.
You might need creativity coaching if you are…
Based on a research study, genes influence only 30% of creative ability.
Rest 70% depends upon the nurture.A coach helps to tap your unexplored creative hobby or potential and overcome various creativity blocks.
Great creativity coaches have an understanding of human behavior and psychology.
Creativity is mostly shaped by our upbringing and our experiences of life. Our immediate environment also has a strong influence on how freely we express ourselves.
But at the core, there are the psychological issues that hold us back from exploiting our full creative potential.
Here are some real life examples of benefits clients have experienced through creativity coaching:
Your creative purpose is what drives you to create – your reason for doing it. Clarity here is really powerful!
When you are aware of your purpose, you can be more intentional with your time and choose to do things you know will bring more happiness and fulfillment, while choosing not to do other things that don’t align with your core values, beliefs and goals.
Knowledge and awareness of your creative purpose brings commitment, so your creative practice is less likely to fall to the wayside because you understand the meaning and fulfillment it brings to your life.
Communicating your purpose is also a great way for your ideal clients to feel connected meaningfully to you and your work.
Creative coaching is a great place to start if you are unsure of your creative purpose.
Many of us are not willing to accept the change. We are unwilling to let go of our comfort zone, therefore, end up not trying anything new. Creativity involves taking a risk and breaking away the old patterns. That is how it brings freshness into your life. Being too rigid hampers our creativity.
Having an idea and turning it into a business may not be easy, but it is entirely possible. This is where many creative coaches shine, helping you turn that niggling idea in the back of your head into a creative business. Supporting you along the way and offering a mind to bounce ideas off of, creative coaches can be indispensable to creative entrepreneurs.
Creativity flows effortlessly when you at peace with yourself. Modern life makes this a challenge, unless approached mindfully and with intention.
Modern lifestyle is exhausting, with endless interruptions and information overload, a culture that values productivity over wellbeing, and expectations for instant gratification. It is all too easy, and common, for us to become unconnected from our inner selves.
The benefits of creative coaching also promotes positive change in all areas of your life, for example:
Who doesn’t want more enjoyment if life!
Creativity coaching focuses on what you need, on your goals, on your plan for your life. We take where you want to go and we connect it to where you are now.
Whatever your goals are, I can support you to achieving them. I create sessions that are focussen on the positive, filled with wonderful tools and shaped to support your individual coaching needs… No one session is ever the same.
Everyone comes to creativity coaching with different challenges, goals and personal lives, so it depends on your unique circumstances, and also how committed you are to the process and making changes. Some creatives can see results after a session or two, while others will benefit from a year of coaching if they are on a more ambitious trajectory. Most coaches offer free discovery calls, and you should take advantage of them to find the best match for you.
You have creative potential inside of you. I know it, and I think you know it too. From figuring out how to structure your working week to avoiding burnout, creative coaches can work with you to ensure you’re in the best position to be creative. If you want to start becoming the creative entrepreneur we both know you can be, it’s time to get started with creative coaching
