Should You Hire A Creative Coach?

Answering this question really depends on where you are in your creative life, and how much you resonate with what a creative coach does.

A creative coach helps artists, performers, writers and other creatives alike pursue their craft, meet their artistic goals, reconnect with creative passions, and rekindle that creative spark.

My approach as a Creative Coach involves the following:

  • Identifying what's holding you back from being where you want to be in your creative life

  • Setting realistic goals, no matter how big or small

  • Developing strategies for reaching those goals

  • Creating fun, rewarding and engaging action plans for pursuing your goals

  • Deeply exploring your love for your craft; why you want to pursue it and what it means to you

  • Looking at your life as a whole to see how other aspects of your wellbeing (such as your mood, energy, physical health, and other life challenges) may be affecting your creative pursuits

  • Finding resources and having discussions that support and elevate your understanding of craft and artistic work

And if you're a writer, my coaching is specialized even further! As a creative writer myself, I can edit written material, consult on story and character development, discuss the craft of writing till the cows come home, and help with publishing. That includes self-publishing, sending out query letters to agents, and submitting your work to literary magazines.

That being said, every client is different and the way I coach one client is never the exact same as another. I tailor my approach to fit the needs of each artist individually.

My only goal as a Creative Coach is to ensure that you obtain a healthy sense of creative fulfilment – whatever that looks like to you.
