Creativity Coaching with Kate Gavigan

Creativity is defined as "the ability to generate or recognize ideas, alternatives, or possibilities that may be useful in solving problems, communicating with others, and entertaining ourselves and others." The great news is that the experience of being creative is open to ALL individuals. The challenge is that individuals exploring their creativity often report challenges with being able to make the transition from "thinking" about working on their creativity to actually "working" on (we prefer "playing with") their creativity. Creative coaching is not just for artists! Creative coaching can be helpful for anyone who has a creative element in their work, anyone who is in the process of launching a creative practice, anyone needing assistance with marketing a creative practice or anyone seeing support, guidance and feedback as you explore your creativity.


Working individually with a creativity coach, you will:


1) have an opportunity to identify your creative vision,
2) explore obstacles,
3) establish concrete strategies to move toward your vision and
4( set up a system for accountability that will assist you in achieving your goals.

The act of being creative can be an exhilarating and sometimes frustrating process with individuals often reporting a lot of starting and stopping. The challenge is to keep moving forward. The skills you learn working individually with a creativity coach can help you in keeping the momentum going whether you are just beginning to explore your creative passion or if your have been going through a period of creative drought. Individual Artist's Way coaching also is available as part of the coaching sessions. For more information, Kate provides a free half hour phone consultation.

Creativity Coach: Kate Gavigan has coached students in exploring their creativity through teaching the Artist's Way classes since 2009.  She is passionate about all things creative and supporting others in realizing their creative dreams. She has seen how exploring one's creativity can profoundly change students' lives. Kate worked as a social services trainer for 10 years when she found herself drawn to the material in The Artist's Way which helped her uncover a passion for theatre  and the arts. She credits her mid-life career change (now working at her dream jobs teaching Artist's Way classes, working as a Marketing Consultant and acting and playing music) to having explored her creativity using The Artist's Way materials as well as utilizing other creativity resources.
