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

  • quick consultation

  • art chat

  • 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)

Hades Container:

Unblocking

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

  • 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.
