Coaching session structure

Coaching structures, methods, and styles vary depending on your individual creative needs and goals. But, sessions generally follow a loose outline. This way you'll always know where we're headed when you come to a coaching call. Below you'll find information on how a coaching session flows.

​​

Sessions are always delivered over the phone or online so you can receive coaching where ever it is that's most comfortable and convenient for you. Sessions last about 90 minutes.

Making space

Every coaching session begins with a guided meditation, or centering. This centering is a way of quieting down and making space so you can fully land in our conversation. The centering serves to help you focus on the time you've set aside to work on your creative life. During the centering, you'll be asked to invite an intention for what you'd like to experience during our time together. Intentions vary artist to artist and often surface based on whatever is going on for you that day. An intention might sound like "to understand my self-doubt," "to gain clarity," or "to be present," just to name a few.

​Checking in

During this segment of the session, we'll talk about whatever is coming up for you and your creativity. You may want to discuss obstacles that are getting in the way of achieving your artistic goals. You may also want to talk about emotions and setbacks you're encountering regarding your creativity. We also want to take this time to celebrate what's gone well for you and to honor your victories in relation to your art, no matter how big or small.

​Learning the tools

After the check-in, there will be time to have a conversation about a precept. You'll learn distinctions to help you understand what's getting in the way of you fulfilling your creative goals and meeting your creative vision. For example, precepts cover hidden commitments, projected traits and qualities, understanding how you've come to form the beliefs that drive your creative life, getting to the root of your excuses and choices, and learning to embrace all the positive qualities in yourself and your art, among other principles.​

Going inside

Once your head comes to understand the coaching precept, I'll guide you through an internal exercise so you can tap into your inner wisdom and discover even more. During this exercise, you'll set action steps and practices that will move you closer to the creative life you most want.​​

Wrapping up

At the end of the call, we'll review the session, clarify action steps, and I'll answer any questions you have that may have come up during our work together. Before we end the session, we'll schedule the next call, if that best serves you.
