How often do you hear yourself saying “I can’t”?

“I can’t sing.”

 

”I can’t overcome my creative blocks and stop procrastinating.”

 

”I can’t make a living as a performer/musician/artist/writer.”

 

”I can’t stop feeling drained and frustrated when I perform or create.”

 

”I can’t figure out why my creative business won’t take off.”

 

”I can’t get to grips with my fear of failure.”

And now imagine you say “I can…” –

– and what’s best, you will actually believe it!

Imagine yourself performing on a high artistic level and having the creative career you always dreamed of.

 

Imagine taking the stress out of performance situations and feeling more accepting of your fear of failure.

 

Imagine gaining financial and emotional freedom through doing what you love.

 

Imagine letting go of negative self-judgement, your own unhelpful expectations and your tendency to compare yourself with others.

 

Imagine overcoming resistance and the internal obstacles that inhibit your success.

I’ve been there…

Only 15 years ago, I was exactly where you are now. I suffered from crippling performance anxiety, low self-confidence, agonising perfectionism, “paralysis by analysis” and ultimately burnout. It held me back from reaching my full creative potential (unbeknownst to most of the people around me, because I was very good at hiding it). What’s more: It made me feel bad about myself all. The. Time!

 

Today, I enjoy performing for its own benefit, free from trying to prove myself. I also have the life and career I always wanted, instead of chasing something that wasn’t in alignment with who I really am. I found true happiness in helping other people overcome the obstacles that I overcame myself and, one step further, applying the knowledge gained via my Psychology and Cognitive Coaching Studies.

That’s why I designed my 3 Step Creative Breakthrough Program

My most popular IGNITE program will provide you with up to three months of support. In just 90 days, I will give you the tools to take the stress out of performance situations or creating your art. Stop running your creative business from a state of permanent overwhelm and finally find freedom through doing what you love.

Days to gain focus, stop getting sidetracked and set your goals.

Days to stop feeling like a failure, embarrassed or as if you’re letting yourself and other people down.

0

Days to kick off your productivity and liberate your creativity through actionable steps.

Who is it for?

My programs have been specifically developed for creatives who are already working in their chosen industry (performing arts, music, fine and visual arts, writing…) but feel they are held back by their own limiting beliefs, fears, or just have no idea why their career is not developing the way they would like it to.

They are also suitable for semi-professional artists who would like to take their creative business to the next level but feel stuck.

The 3 Step Creative Breakthrough Program

All my programs will be personalised to fit your goals and are fully customisable. As such, they can include elements that are based on cognitive coaching, CBT and/or counselling, depending on your needs.

What they all have in common is that you will be led through a 3 Step Process to help you overcome what currently holds you back:

 

Crystal-clear goal setting

Pinpointing and moving through your blocks

Following through and taking action

 

My signature program (“Liftoff”) will be most helpful to establish lasting changes, but shorter programs or ongoing support/check-in sessions are possible. Please also enquire about my VIP days if you would like to work with laser focus over one or two days.

 

Here are some of the areas in which I can support you, and a rough guide to what you can expect…

PEAK PERFORMANCE COACHING

Is the 3 Step Creative Breakthrough Program for me?

The program is for you if you…

... are an artist who suffers from low self-confidence

... struggle with performance anxiety, and nothing seems to help

... feel ashamed, frustrated or guilty about your mental blocks

... need to perform on a high artistic level and want to take the stress out of performance situations

... are happy with your artistry but want to get better at networking and communicating

The program is not for you if you…

.. have already achieved emotional and financial freedom doing what you love

... are happy with the way your creative career is developing and how much income it provides you with

... never doubt your creativity or artistry

... are resistant to or afraid of change

...can not or do not want to commit to setting goals, working on your mindset and taking action

Still not sure?

That’s what my 30 min Quick Consults are for!

We will take some time to talk through your challenges with laser focus, and you will get some ideas how to start your self-improvement journey. If we come to the conclusion that you could do with longer term support, you can still sign up for one of my programs.
