Deborah Henry-Pollard: Creative Coaching

 

Coaching is about working with you to facilitate change. It is non-directive and used to help draw out your ideas and actions relevant to your situation. It is a non-judgemental and objective process that lets you take control, identify and work effectively towards your goals.  You may find new ways of working which support your practice or break through blocks caused by lack of confidence, negative perception or unhelpful attitudes. With the help of a coach, you can often reach goals, find your purpose and clarity with far less effort and time than you ever would have done alone.




You are clear on what you want to achieve and where you are going. However, perhaps there is one thing, a single issue or problem which is causing a sticking point. You want space to thrash out the situation, find a way through and then move on. You want a sounding board and an objective listener.


This session is a quick blast to clarify what’s stopping you, identify the next actions and kick start your motivation.

You know what you want to do, but not sure how to move forward or you have lots of ideas and potential actions, but it is all a jumble in your head. Once you find clarity, you get a great start on your project, full of enthusiasm and fine intentions. Then life gets in the way, your plans take second place, then fall off the to do list. Or doubts set in and your inner critic tries to sabotage you. 


The first, longer, intensive session begins the process of brainstorming, addressing issues, identifying goals and creating key actions. The subsequent sessions offer you the ongoing accountability to help keep you on track and motivated, and build on the insights and opportunities which arise once you get into action. We agree your goals and actions to work on between sessions.

You know something needs to change in your creative life, but you aren’t sure what or how. You have vague ideas and don’t know on what/how to focus. Perhaps you can’t see further than your current circumstances, or have only thought in general terms of ‘being an artist/writer/creative’. 


Over a series of sessions, we look at your current situation and through questions, visualisations and exercises you can begin to identify what your vision is for your creative life. Regular coaching sessions build on what you discover about yourself, what might be stopping you and keep you on track and accountable to create sustainable change. We agree your goals and actions to work on between sessions.  You will go away with a clearer idea of where you want to be and how to make decisions and take opportunities to get you there.
