Frequently Asked Questions
SO, ARE YOU AN ART LADY OR A COACH?
I don't mind being called an art lady, but the answer is - I am a coach! I am here to help you with your personal experiences by exploring art materials and journaling that allow you to process what you are going through in the present moment.
OKAY, YOU ARE A COACH. SO, WHAT IS A CREATIVE COACH?
Good question! Being a Creative Coach means that I am a coach who incorporates art journaling to help you cope with your emotions based on your current experiences. By using specific art materials, I am here to guide you through your journey that will help you have a deeper understanding of yourself, have a balance in your world, and learn coping techniques to stay grounded when life stressors get in the way. Together, we will create goals to meet your expectations and needs by providing awareness in the present moment to put your best foot forward on the path that you want to take.
HM... I'M NOT DIGGING THIS IDEA YET.
That's okay! I am glad you are taking the time to understand my services.
Through my personal experience and working with clients, the term 'coaching' may intially feel quite intimidating. If it is your first time, you may not feel ready to learn something new about yourself or coaching may feel difficult for you to talk about your story to someone that you don't know, causing you to think that you may be judged or the coach has a blank-slate (are they even human?).
For people that experienced coaching in the past, you may not have found the right fit as many coaches have different styles, or you may be processing if you really need to work on yourself (I can relate to this one).
When we start to have these mixed emotions, we become a person on the surface, creating coping mechanisms that can be unhealthy for our emotional, physical, and mental well-being. Therefore, we develop an avoidance of our story by repressing them down into our sub-conscious. This complex situation can lead us to a high rise in stress!
But, I want to welcome you to the fact you are even reading about coaching, which means that you are becoming aware that coaching exists in the world if you need it. And, truly my friend, that is the first step to begin your journey :)
(MEEP) YOU GOT ME. SO, WHAT IS YOUR STYLE AS A COACH?
I have an eclectic style by reflecting, validating, and sitting with your emotions through your story. Here are 3 essential factors that you will see in the session:
1. Safe Space: Providing a safe space allows you to feel comfortable sharing your story and alleviating your expressions in a private area. If you don't have a safe space, this a great start to build a connection that can provide further options for what is best for you.
2. Connection: It isn't easy spilling out your words to someone that you don't know. Therefore, taking the time to get to know each other by using creativity is a great way to form communication and trust. Through our dialogue and art-making, understanding in the process allows you to create change and provide positive outlooks in your life.
3. Balance: There can be too many life stressors that may cause you to feel unbalanced. In session, we will work on developing coping techniques that will help you feel grounded and calm. Forming positive coping skills allows you to become more self- aware of your actions and conflicts and increase the quality of well-being.
(SMILE FACE) OKAY, ANOTHER QUESTION. DO YOU HAVE TO BE GOOD IN ART?
No! I am not training you to become an artist. Creativity is a form of expression and healing based on what YOU are going through. All you need is yourself, a journal, and art materials as I guide you the way to search for your path :)
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING FOR AN ONLINE SESSION?
All you need to bring are some simple art supplies such as, watercolors, colored pencils, and a journal. Throughout sessions, we will explore further with unique art materials according to your budget!
