Always this energy smoulders inside; When it remains unlit The body fills with dense smoke
David Whyte

Whether your creative outlet is painting, writing, design, dance, photography, sculpting, performance, composing, inventing, building an enterprise, Creativity Coaching can help you honour your creative impulses and support you in your creative practice.

In one-on-one coaching sessions Cathy Mauk, works with you to:

  • clarify your goals for creating
  • confront what gets in the way: self-doubt, anxiety, fear of failure, time management and self-talk
  • move from wishing → to intending → to action
  • cultivate positive obsessions
  • manage resistance and continue to create in the middle of things
  • make courageous decisions that will allow you to maintain a creative life
  • hold onto your dream
  • develop resilience
  • maintain momentum

Please contact Cathy to organise a confidential initial meeting to discuss your creativity coaching needs.

Has your writing project turned into a trip up Mt Agony? Are there not enough hours in the day? Do you wish you had decided to be a plumber rather than a writer? Perhaps you don’t trust the value of your work. Maybe you’re just plain stuck.
Why not join a writers’ support group?
With a small group of committed writers you can:

  • get started
  • regain and keep your momentum
  • stop your self-defeating internal dialogue
  • understand and break down resistance
  • gain confidence
  • learn self-compassion and self-kindness
  • get your mojo workin’

This is not a writing workshop. A writers’ support group is a safe environment where you can support and be supported by those who are on a similar journey, generate mental energy, clarify your goals, hold yourself accountable, and find inspiration. Writers’ support groups are open to writers at all levels, all genres.

Please contact Cathy to discuss your writing support needs or to set up a group.
