Frequently Asked Questions
Who do you work with?
I work with those who identify as a ‘creative’ person, artists across any medium, writers, multipotentialites, and wellbeing professionals.
I work with so-called ‘uncreative’ people who would like to access more of their inner creativity, particularly for personal growth. Everyone is creative when given the chance.
I work with the intelligent, the sensitive, the socially conscious, the benevolent, the quiet leaders, the loud creators, and the fierce introverts of this world.
I work both in-person in Berlin and via Skype with clients internationally.
What is your style of coaching?
I take a facilitative, client-centred and collaborative approach to coaching rather than a purely advice-giving approach (which isn’t actually coaching).
I will ask you a lot of questions and together we will uncover possibilities, explore your dreams and visions and then create strategies, habits and facilitative environments to help make them a reality. You will gain clarity, learn new skills for life/creativity and, especially, increase trust in your own abilities and resourcefulness.
I incorporate creative techniques.
I draw on my training and studies in life coaching, creativity coaching, art therapy, arts business, small business management, my own experiences working in various creative fields, as well as my continuous self-study and learning across multiple fields.
What is the difference between coaching and therapy?
Coaching is focused on moving you forward towards your goals and bringing out your best, whereas therapy is about healing things from your past or improving your mental health.
Coaching is not a substitute for therapy. If a therapy issue comes up I suggest seeking extra support from your preferred therapist or counsellor.
Confidentiality is ensured in coaching, excepting any legal/ethical obligations such as when someone may be in danger.
Should I choose a single session or a package?
I recommend ongoing coaching because the support and accountability of ongoing coaching has a cumulative effect. We can develop a strong collaborative relationship over the course of several sessions and this leads to greater results.
Single sessions are great when you have a specific time sensitive challenge, project or inner block that you would like to address, when your budget is tight or when you just want to book sessions as you feel like it. If it feels urgent – book a single session and we’ll get you untangled quickly!!
I offer a free 30 minute consultation for anyone considering booking a package with me so that we can ensure it is a good match before any commitments are made. You will have the opportunity to experience my style of coaching, ask any questions about the process and I can let you know what to expect.
Who is the business plan program for?
The Freedom to Create business planning program is best suited for self-representing visual artists, writers, photographers, digital media creators, performers, workshop facilitators… anyone in the arts or wellbeing industries.
The artists and professionals I do career coaching with are always very committed, they invest in long-term coaching because they know it is an investment in themselves and their future (and hey, it’s actually cheaper and more fun than doing a business course). They take great pride in their work and they are willing to do whatever it takes (within their values) to move forward in their creative career and get their art made.
What are your payment terms?
Payment can be made via direct debit (I recommend Transferwise for international currencies) , PayPal or cash. Payment plans are available.
