I am impressed by how you ensured that our time together was a magical combination of art, self-expression and meditation, with a warmth and compassion that made it easy to relax into it all.

I achieved what I had come for, and was able to go deeper than I expected, so my expectations were all exceeded.  The way you regularly checked in with me as to what I wanted and whether it was working was really helpful.

I take home with me both a better understanding and a reinforcement of what I need to do to feed and nurture my health and creativity.  You gently challenged me to design a path towards it, laid out in simple steps. By the time I left I felt more grounded, and at the same time I was buzzing with creative ideas.

I want to thank Zangmo Alexander for her help and support with some serious issues in my life. She is a caring, supportive individual that can almost see into your soul. She has helped me clarify many recent issues plus helped with an "action plan" for dealing with these issues. Her coaching is incredibly astute and personal. I would recommend those of you considering coaching to contact Zangmo.

- K.G. Thetford

We just wanted to thank you for your stu­pendous input today. My son is ex­tremely en­er­gised by the ses­sion and has a clear idea of what he needs to do to suc­ceed in his pho­to­graphy exam.

- P.C. Suf­folk

I always find myself relaxing and feeling inspired within the first few minutes of arriving for a session with Zangmo. She radiates warmth and joyfulness, with the stillness and vitality of someone who has clearly spent many years meditating. I’ve found her a very generous teacher for meditation, art business and life coaching, and find her one of those teachers who makes a big difference.

Ex­cel­lent day. Loved doing ex­press­ive paint­ing.... would re­com­mend it to all.

- R.T, Nor­folk: Ex­press­ive Paint­ing Work­shop

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: Cre­ativ­ity Coach­ing

I have learned a lot from your as­sign­ments. They are well presen­ted, and tech­niques are easy to un­der­stand. I can see my work im­prove as I con­tinue work­ing my way through the sec­tions, so I thought I'd like to say thank you.

- Sayra R, Berkshire: Be­gin­ners Dis­tance Learn­ing Draw­ing

I have found the 20 hours of pho­to­graphy train­ing in­valu­able. From simply point­ing and shoot­ing and hop­ing for the best, I now un­der­stand how to use my cam­era more ef­fect­ively and have more con­fid­ence in using my cam­era. I look at the world in a dif­fer­ent way. Zangmo has been very pa­tient and is a very good teacher. She was quick to work out how I would best learn and what to teach me when I didn't really have a clue.

- Sue Ec­cle­stone, Nor­folk: Pho­to­graphy Tu­ition


Our daugh­ter was in her A2 year and strug­gling with her Pho­to­graphy A level. We en­gaged Zangmo to help. It was clear that she had con­sid­er­able ex­per­i­ence with the sub­ject and what was re­quired from the ex­am­in­a­tion board. From the start she as­sisted by en­sur­ing that a strong frame­work was put into place. This had an im­me­di­ate ef­fect of giv­ing our daugh­ter the con­fid­ence she needed to allow her to pro­gress in a mean­ing­ful way. Her ap­proach is to lead but not take over al­low­ing the pro­ject port­fo­lio to de­velop in a con­struct­ive man­ner, fit­ting in with the school course work and main­tain­ing a fresh per­spect­ive.

- Jayne O, At­tle­bor­ough, Nor­folk: A Level Pho­to­graphy


Dur­ing my 3 day re­treat you helped me to identify coun­ter­pro­duct­ive habits that have been in­hib­it­ing my growth and I now see why over-fo­cus­sing on cer­tain ways of draw­ing and mak­ing has for so long been pre­vent­ing me from mov­ing for­ward.  I felt that we made some 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!

I have felt great since com­ing home and my focus is now on find­ing a new home and bill pay­ing job so that I can get mov­ing in the stu­dio. When ready I would cer­tainly like to con­tinue our ses­sions be it on the phone or an­other re­treat day.

- Geor­gina B, Lon­don: Cre­ativ­ity Coach­ing


How grate­ful I feel that I found Zangmo on the in­ter­net. One-to-One Tu­ition was a per­fect choice for me, one which I'd love to re­peat. I have no hes­it­a­tion in re­com­mend­ing this to oth­ers. From the first I found Zangmo wel­com­ing, friendly, per­cept­ive and at­tent­ive. She listened to me and ob­served me so well without im­pos­ing; was gently chal­len­ging and sup­port­ive throughout.

An ac­com­plished artist and teacher, Zangmo with her know­ledge, man­ner, per­son­al­ity and ex­per­i­ence in many areas gave me a very be­ne­fi­cial pro­cess to de­velop free­dom in my art work. Com­bin­ing these tech­niques with some med­it­a­tion I move for­ward with con­fid­ence; I can re­lease my­self from pre­vi­ous lim­it­a­tions. Thank you Zangmo.

- S.M, Cyprus: Art Tu­ition


My re­treat with Zangmo was a most en­joy­able ex­per­i­ence, as her sup­port and en­cour­age­ment has given me the de­sire to pur­sue my love of col­our and ex­pres­sion again. It has been a few weeks now since my time with her in Nor­folk, and something I no­tice is that when I wake in the morn­ings, I have feel­ings of hope and ex­cite­ment from these new be­gin­nings and a re­lease with my own cre­at­ive­ness. I feel I've been given a new gift of life.

- G.R, Kent: First Cre­ativ­ity Coach­ing Re­treat


I had reached a stage in my paint­ing where I felt stuck and stale and lack­ing in­spir­a­tion.  I needed someone to guide me and help me over­come my cre­at­ive blocks. I’ve been work­ing with Zangmo via email and tele­phone, and I have been in­spired by her friendly and sym­path­etic coach­ing. Under her guid­ance, I have learnt how to tap into the emo­tional and cre­at­ive parts of my­self and to ex­press them artistically. While al­ways being gentle and sup­port­ive, she has chal­lenged me to ex­press my­self in many dif­fer­ent ways – often push­ing my but­tons as well as my bound­ar­ies!  She never dic­tates what I ‘should’ do.  Rather, she makes sug­ges­tions and comes up with all sorts of ideas and it’s up to me act on any which res­on­ate with me.  

Dur­ing the hour-long coach­ing ses­sions Zangmo is al­ways fo­cussed on what my aims and needs are.  I really feel that it’s all about me and my art and she is the cata­lyst that en­ables me to ac­cess an in­fin­ite source of cre­ativ­ity within me of which I was un­aware.

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."

- J.M, Bury St Edmunds

What a bril­liant day.... Zangmo - caring, re­lax­ing, em­pathic teacher - will love to do it again.
