My skills, training and experience
I began creative coaching three years ago. This formalized a role I've often played in my communities. I've completed Eric Maisel's Advanced Creative Coaching training.
My training and work in adult education led me to research how to help adults grow, and how to break skills down into tiny parts. I have prepared and facilitated scores of effective sessions, and am often complimented on the fun, relaxing and learning-filled atmosphere I promote.
Two years as a trained Lifeline phone counsellor honed my listening skills, and gave a deeper understanding of what blocks us, the role of emotion and how people can transform.
I have a Masters degree with first class honors in the humanities. The research skills I gained are useful for satisfying my strong interest in the brain. This keeps me familiar with key insights from neuroscience and psychology.
Most importantly, I have a lifetime experience as a creative person. Learning how to help myself has motivated me to acquire a diverse range of techniques and insights.
