The creative process is a unique challenge.
And creative people need a special kind of support.
WELCOME TO CREATIVITY COACHING
What is creativity coaching?
Whether you’re craving support, encouragement, guidance, clarity, expertise, a fresh perspective or just someone who believes in you – the right coach can help you.
Your coach is a personal, customised support system whose job is to help you get to where you want to go, live the life you want to live, and be the person you know you can be.
What does a creativity coach do?
Creativity coaching is a specialist form of coaching – designed purely to support the brave creative souls who are stepping up and pursuing their craft.
Because the creative path isn’t an easy one!
There are many and varied issues to be faced, both inner blocks and outer constraints.
A creativity coach is trained to help you navigate the inevitable bumps along the way.
We are here to make it easier for you to create the work that you know is in you.
Hi! I’m Danielle
I’m a writer, designer, and creativity coach.
I’ve been a creative professional for almost three decades.
In 2014, I stumbled across the work of creativity coaching and I was hooked.
Because I have been obsessed with studying, experimenting and analysing the creative path, process and psyche since my Art College epiphany in 1993.
And now, helping other creative souls is my purpose and my passion.
But what exactly is Creativity Coaching?
And why is a holistic approach so beneficial?
Here’s my take on this powerful and exciting new support service, and why I love it so much…
With the right support you can;
Reduce those time-consuming and soul-sapping wobbles – and do more of the work you LOVE to create.
Move beyond self-consciousness and doubt, so you can freely and confidently express your unique brand of brilliance.
Swap desperation for inspiration, so you can connect with the great ideas and work you are here to share.
Craft a creative life that thrills you, fulfils you and expresses your unique gifts.
Think of the most successful creative people
the world has known…
How did they achieve their great work, despite the many obstacles that we all encounter?
Most of the great creators had some kind of support system; a champion or cheerleader or secret weapon to guide them through the inevitable wobbles of the creative journey.
After all, even the most brilliant and talented genius can’t see their own blind spots.
This is the role of creativity coaching –
to offer the 3 vital ingredients that make the difference
between giving up and hanging in there:
My secret ingredients…
After 20+ years in the creative trenches, working, studying and analysing the creative process, I’ve built up quite a powerful toolkit; insights into what works, what doesn’t, what makes things easier and what makes things worse.
This experience, these strategies and solutions are at the core of my creativity coaching service.
I also have a unique approach,
featuring two not-so-secret ingredients…
A holistic approach
When we create, we bring our whole selves to the work.
Our energy, mood, emotions and challenges all effect our creative efforts. They even show up in our work.
So my approach to creativity coaching is to treat creative blocks holistically, to build a foundation of health, wellbeing, confidence and inner calm.
We’ll explore strategies to revitalise the whole you, not just your creative self.
The result is more joy, fun and ease in the creative process, as well as a healthy life balance and a fulfilled sense of self.
A philosophy of joy, flow & ease
The majority of the creative process is the process, not the result.
So why not make that largest part of the journey as easy, enjoyable and inspired as possible?
Of course, there are times when the discomfort, uncertainty and nervousness are unavoidable – an integral part of the creative life. (And they do add a certain sweetness to the successes.)
But whenever possible, we work with your natural inclinations, enthusiasms and passions – rather than attempting to use force and willpower (which are neither fun nor sustainable.)
When you harness the powers of awareness, inspiration and efficiency – creativity can be effortless and exhilarating.
