What do you do?

I´m a creative coach, yoga teacher, writer, dj and above all, human (exploring "being"), 

I help people get clearer, more focussed and inspired and empower them to explore and make their goals real. And along the way, i hold space for them and share offerings to take care of themselves a little better in real-life, purposeful, meaningful and sustainable ways.

Why .space?

Because my work involves:

  1. Holding space for people to create more space for themselves via my yoga classes, workshops and retreats, as well as
     
  2. Sharing resources for people to access spacemaking techniques, either via coaching, my digest, the blog, through my playlists and radio show and my courses, but also,
     
  3. Transforming physical spaces into welcoming and curious environments to create events and experiences in, for example with my art + yoga collaborations at Griegakademiet, in Norway.

I love to play with space - exploring and sharing ideas about how we can take up space in the world in the most authentic and meaningful way possible, and also how we can create more of it, via intentional methods like Self Care. Many different mediums inspire me - so i enjoy merging and eating the boundaries with my projects, for example, the arts with yoga, sound and meditation.

I'm based between Brighton UK and Bergen Norway which also draws on my interest in the concept of space - i'm interested in how we show up in the world and for ourselves, in real life and online. I feel so lucky that my clients span continents and i get to show up for them through resources they can access both online and offline. 

Space is the place! 

Who do you work with?

I work with people from many walks of life. They are people who are ready for big transformations in their life, they're tired of the status quo and want fresh new ideas and approaches. What they all have in common is an openness - a willingness to explore, to trust and believe that there is another way to live that doesn't mean you have to compromise who you are and what you love. They tend to be inclined towards a creative life - that doesn't mean they are necessarily an artist, but they might yearn to have more creativity in their lives, be it as a hobby or as a career. 

  • You might be a creative solopreneur working all hours and feeling unsure of how to find more balance.
  • You might be working a 9-5 and dreaming of a creative lifestyle. 
  • Or working part time and grafting on your side hustle.
  • You might be an accountant, or an architect, or a project manager and yearning for a way to reconnect to your truth in real-life ways.
  • You might be a person doing a load of different things, but find it hard to juggle it all.
  • Perhaps a freelancer, blogger, artist or creative entrepreneur. Perhaps you´re a yoga teacher, new or seasoned. Overwhelmed or uninspired.
  • You might be short on time, struggling to find ways to squeeze wellness techniques into your world or even where to start. 
  • Or worried that you need to be bendy or skinny or needing to give up who you are in order to relate to "wellness" or "yoga" or "meditation" or "a creative life" (here's the thing, you don't!). 
  • You might be on the brink of burnout, or gently finding your feet again.

I can support you to feel empowered and create a life that feels true to who you are. 

You don´t need to know what that looks like yet,
or how to get there: i can help.

 

What is Creative Coaching - is it therapy and does it mean i'm a failure?

Nah, it's not therapy - although some people call it therapy for your creativity - and no, i'm certain you're not a failure - sidenote: therapy doesn't mean you're a failure and i fully endorse it and anything that helps you to feel better!

Creative Coaching is for anyone who might feel stuck, that could use some support and a friendly helper to hold space for you to reconnect to your voice, vision and goals. Goals can sometimes be an intimidating word, but just to clarify, i think of them like intensions - they are moveable, you don´t get punished if you don´t meet them, and they are things that enhance your life, not deprive you of good stuff. 

People hire creative coaches for all kinds of reasons. For many, it's career focussed. Or they have a personal dream in mind - for example, to focus on wellness or to clarify their direction. I find that as life tends to interconnect with many different things, it´s useful to start with getting clear on you - that is, finding out the stuff that pings your pants, and from that, creating some goals (or intentions) and putting sustainable steps in place to reach them. It might be one goal, or many, but getting clear with your core values, visions, dreams and begin building blocks to make them real. 

What's your coaching style?

I'm not into telling people what to do. I have a non dogmatic approach and work with individuals based on their needs. I have 6 years of coaching experience and have helped people move from formulating ideas to creating a more authentic and fulfilling life. I tend to like to explore details but am keen to always offer a bigger picture perspective. So much is connected, so i like to embrace that. 

I see you, i hear you and we collaborate to uncover your focus, and get clear on what you want and how to get there. 

Medium-wise, you can expect lots of tools and techniques to dig into finding flow again (don't expect OHP printouts unless you make a special request). Audio, video, social media, multimedia. 

How can i tell which offering is right for me? 

Well, it depends on where you're at right now.

If you are feeling a little lost but ready to work on getting clear and focussed and inspired and empowered to explore your longer term dreams, the FIND YOUR FLOW option is probably a better fit so we can go deep and create solid foundations for your goals and make a plan that feels good where i can support you to dive in.

If you are already clear on what it is you're going for right now, but could use some support with something sticky, whether it's some time to pick my brains, strategise, have accountability, a fresh perspective and/or encouragement to see it through, then the Catalyst is probably for you. Remember you can always book a free consultation with me over here if you want to talk it through.

Can you work with anyone in the world?

I can! (thank you internet!) and have had clients from many different time zones! 

We can figure out a suitable time together (this helps) and schedule our sessions in a feel-good place that works. 

But what do you need from me?

A Skype connection and commitment, babes. Yeah, i know, it can be a big deal, but i promise, if you show up to meet me and be willing to chomp at the plate of possibility, there's no limit to what transformations can happen! The first step is the greatest and if you're ready to take charge of designing a life that feels authentic and real and great and in flow, i've got you.

Sidenote: i realise it can be really annoying when people say that you can do anything, then give you really impossible things to implement that make you burn out and feel worse than where you began. That's why i'm into FLOW encompassing self care too. Together we get to define your gut goals and move towards them in sustainable ways that make sense in real life - you won't be expected to move to a hut in the middle of nowhere and sacrifice your everyday commitments unless you want to. 

What do humans get from you?

Someone that listens and asks the right questions. Guidance and suggestions but never lecturing or snooty "shoulds". A conversation not a lecture. Fresh inspiration. A different approach. Resources and ideas. Support with finding your focus and flow. Accountability. Non-judgement. Realness. Good vibes. And probably gifs in some capacity...
