Mindfulness Based Creativity Coaching in Suffolk
for personal, creative and professional development

Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn’t do, than by the things you did do.
So, throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor,
catch the trade wind in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.

Mark Twain

 

How could you be more creative in a way that comes from the deepest part of you, that feels most meaningful?

When we feel blocked, resistant, depressed, anxious, confused, or are straining to be someone else's idea of what we should be, this is reflected in our creative expression and quality of life. We can feel frozen, depressed, anxious, limited, frustrated - in other words, stuck.


Mindfulness Based Creativity Coaching can help you learn to relax, be more aware and present.

This relaxation and presence can free blocked energy for authentic, deeply satisfying creative expression and appreciation of daily life.

Artistic self expression then becomes an enriching journey of self discovery in which you are more authentically yourself and create naturally from that.

Who is Mindfulness Based Creativity Coaching for?

Anyone! You may be at the starting post just wanting to start becoming more creative.....

Or be picking up an interest you put down many years ago....

Or be wanting to express yourself but don't know how.....

Or you could be a creative professional wanting to move on to the next stage of your business or creative development.

Depending on your interests and needs, we can work at deeply personal levels and also at very practical, nuts and bolts levels – they are not mutually exclusive and are often both needed!

My approach when Coaching

You set the agenda, we clarify what's going on, where you'd like to go and what would help you get there. Together we embark on a journey in which I support you in moving towards where you would like to be.

Depending on your inclination, we fluidly and intuitively work with a range of inspiring methods from Life Coaching, Creativity Coaching, Art Teaching, Therapeutic Art, Mindfulness and Meditation.

This means that at times we might use coaching methods, and at other times more formal teaching, mindfulness or meditation methods may be more beneficial.

Insights fostered through mindful creative artistic practice can be transferred to any other area of personal life and work.

How can Mindfulness Based Creativity Coaching help me?

Work through the blocks, procrastination, resistance, fear, anxiety and negative beliefs sabotaging your personal, creative and professional development

Clarify what is really important, authentic and meaningful in life for you – what are your core values, aspirations, goals and beliefs that make life worth living and creative work worth doing?

Maybe you are deeply wishing to reconnect with your love of doing art that you experienced many years ago and need support with this to find confidence, focus or learn skills while you get yourself going doing art work.

Or you may be returning to doing art after a gap to raise a family or do other work, or are going through a life transition, career change or retirement.

Mindfulness Based Creativity Coaching can be part of a path of healing, self discovery and personal development, enabling you to combine creative activity with ME, MS, physical disability, depression and stress. I integrate mindfulness, spiritual counselling, art teaching and coaching to help you connect with and express your deepest self.

Or are you wanting to go professional with creative practice but not sure how to do this? If you are a creative professional, you may be wanting support with professional development to move your business forward, deepen and progress your creative work or change direction in what you are doing.

Women in particular find difficulty making time to nourish themselves through creative activities. If you are keen to integrate creativity into your life, Mindfulness Based Creativity Coaching can support you in learning to balance creative work with other areas of your life, such as relationships, physical health, social and family life and spirituality.

Developing a body of creative work takes patience, perseverence and committment, just for starters. Mentoring and coaching can be a tremendous ongoing support, particularly when self doubt, blocks, anxiety and other issues poke their heads up.

What clients say:

During my 3 day retreat you helped me to identify counterproductive habits that have been inhibiting my growth. I felt that we made real progress and that I left with a different outlook on what I want to get out of the next chapter in my life. 

Your experience as a practicing artist, teacher and coach combined with the fact that you wasted no time in getting down to what really matters to me meant that this was a very valuable 3 days and money well spent.  Thank you!"

Zangmo has been inspirational and encouraging. Very often, I have doubts of my abilities to paint, but my time with Zangmo has shown me how I can understand and address these debilitating thoughts that can inhibit my creativeness and the need to express myself.

These sessions have helped me to define my broad goals, to set short term targets and to find the confidence to expand and explore my work as a textile artist.

B.B, Norfolk

 

A practising artist and art teacher, I booked onto a 4-day One-to-One course with Zangmo to discuss, learn and experiment with the idea of extending my teaching skills to include Mandala painting. However, due to Zangmo's wealth of knowledge of Art used therapeutically, in Life Coaching and Creativity Coaching, some interesting, personal issues began to emerge. I had felt totally stuck with my own, personal art work, due to a stressful few years in my personal life. After some in depth conversations with Zangmo, we began concentrating more on these issues rather than teaching issues.

Very interesting things emerged, and I now feel that with her help and dedicated time with no distractions, I have made positive inroads to the next step in my journey. A great few days!

R.K, Lancashire

 

I feel amazingly freed - I don't feel as if I am now carrying round the burdens I was carrying when I walked in through the door. Zangmo has enabled me to feel better even in one session. I am looking forward to learning more and practising what I learned today."
