What is Creativity Coaching?
Creativity and Expressive Arts Coaching combine the visual arts, movement, drama, music, writing and other creative processes to foster deep personal growth and community development.
By integrating the art processes and allowing one to flow into another, we gain access to our inner resources for healing, clarity, problem-solving and creativity. Sharing our artistic expression in safety is important.
We can solve problems in which we experience a sense of being stuck in an unwanted situations for which we see no way out. There is a clear feeling of being trapped without any viable alternatives. This ‘tightness’ can also be described as ‘having no range of play.’
These types of problems are difficult to solve because the answer or solution is not within the range of alternatives that we can see.
The more we focus on solving the problem, the less we can find a solution. Therefore we need to find a new perspective from which we can see new options. This method is based upon the assumptions that:
Creativity and Expressive Arts Coaching can be helpful for persons seeking personal development, self-discovery and healing. We all have an innate capacity and a need to be creative.
Second, it can be helpful in solving problems, conflict resolution and brainstorming in a wide range of business, professional, and educational settings.
Third, Creativity and Expressive Arts Coaching can be helpful in teambuilding, to strengthen the resilience of the team, to establish and retain its well-being and to activate resources, cognitive diversity and a sense of coherence within the team.
