DOULA MUSE COACH
1-on-1 Coaching Containers
I create playful, non-judgmental, and experimental creative spaces in my one-on-one sessions. If you are struggling with a project, have a creative block, or just want to muse in an arty space- these sessions are for you. Each session is tailored to the specific creative's need.
Persephone Container: An Introductory Session
90-120 mins 1-1 session online or in person at my studio
"Persephone is the spark that moves us from idea to creation." - Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes
In an introductory session, the intention is to catalyze whatever process you are busy with. To shake dust and depression off of any part of your process. To muse and inspire new life into your creative practice.
For Creatives who Want:
(there will probably only be time for one or two of these topics)
a fresh perspective
to be prompted to realign with what you are trying to create/ a specific project (come tell me why you are doing what you are doing and I'll ask some critical questions to help you define it)
considering a career in art and want to talk through the possibilities
Topics I Might Touch on Depending on Your Needs:
PLAY! Bringing lightness and fun to your work
Curiosity and Beginner's Mind (Zen concept)
Fresh perspectives on your project
Your relationship with your inner artist (we all have an inner creative that is about 4 years old)
Outline creative judgments, patterns, and wounds that may be blocking you
Quick brainstorming of a specific project
What people say...
“With one sentence impeccably timed Nicolene pulls me out of my creative blocks and into flow. Allowing me to birth my own creativity.” - Alex Diepering (Alchemist, Sacred Embodiment Coach, and Tantric Shamanic Practitioner)
3-week Creative Container:
2x 1-1 sessions in person or online
1x homework self-practice in between 1-1 session
Sessions spread over max a month
Hades is the shadow part of our creativity. It is the critique, the wounds, the stuck patterns. The intention of this 3-week container is to shed light on what might be standing in your way to fully expressing your creativity.
For Creatives who Want to:
go on a short creative journey with me.
have time to integrate my feedback, questions, and reflections.
discuss more than one artistic aspect of their work (for example, someone might want to work on their relationship with critique and brainstorm a specific project).
want to implement an art business strategy with me over a few weeks.
Topics I might touch on depending on your needs:
The depths, the dark & the creative death
Facing and voicing fears
Go deeper into self-judgments, patterns, and wounds that may be blocking you.
Brainstorming a specific project (more in-depth discussions)
Being seen as a creative - how to communicate your work to the world
Superficial business coaching: identity, why you do what you do, talking about your project
What people say...
"The immersive container I did with Nicolene was life-changing! I felt empowered and excited to make my artistic dreams come true.” - Quilene le Roux (Independent artist and workshop facilitator)
What people say...
"I felt I could trust you, that you were emotionally committed. Let's work together again!”
- Valeria Geselev (Curator and Maker)
A session generally includes:
A guided visualization meditation/Jungian active visualization practice to activate your imagination/ meet the part of your psyche that is blocked and what is blocking it.
Personalized art prompts to work through your creative blocks.
Journaling prompts to start reflective writing.
Guidance to discover your artistic identity
Advice on how to invest in a creative ritual/practice at home that will help you connect to your creativity with more ease.
