Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching
What is creativity coaching?
Creativity coaching is about getting help during the process of creating. It doesn’t matter what it is you’re creating, being art, starting a biz or blog, or writing.
I help you move forward when you get stuck. I don’t critique your work and give my opinion, but I help you see why you get stuck and how you can get unstuck.
Studies say 80% of us quit our creative pursuits (which is often our meaningful work) because we get stuck in the process. I want to help you be in the 20%.
What is Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching?
Kaizen is Japanese and means “continuous improvement with small steps”.
Muse is representative of 9 creative principles (9 muses):
Albert: thinking differently,
Bea Silly: play and laughter
Muse Song: self-care
Spills: practice and imperfection,
Lull: pause and gratitude,
Shadow: our dark side,
Marge: small steps.
KMCC takes the pressure off the need to be perfect and instead celebrate being good enough. We use tools like small steps and small questions. Gentleness, play, and silliness. We tackle things like overwhelm and perfectionism, comparison and procrastination.
How is Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching different from Life Coaching?
Life coaching is focused on the end goal and taking big action. KMCC
$97 for 6 weeks of email coaching.
$350 for 6 weeks of one-to-one coaching
We communicate through email once a week (1 day),
where you tell me about how you’re doing with your
creative work, what your
and where you’d like to get to.
There will probably be a few emails back and forth
if we need to clarify something,
but we’ll stick to the 1 day
You will choose a specific day during the working week
where you will email me,
and I will respond no later than within 48 hours, and give you a detailed and personal email back.
You fill out the contact form below and we have a chat about what you’re looking for and whether we are a right fit.
This is to ensure you get the best coaching for your specific need.
Then we Skype once a week for 6 weeks. I send you a “Follow-Up” after each session as a reminder of what you talked about, and (if any) steps to take until our next session
We choose a specific day that suits us both. Each session is 45 minutes long.
Because 6 weeks will give you momentum while also honoring that life happens and gets in the way of good intentions.
Creativity coaching is for you if you want to enjoy life’s process. The creating process is full of personal growth, difficulties
YES! It is so much for you. I’m multi-passionate too, so I understand you. We know about the process.
The email coaching is in one payment.
The one-on-one coaching can be paid in two installments of $178
Yes, in certain situations. It could be family situations or illness has prevented you from sticking to our weekly coaching. But ask for details. I am not interested in unhappy clients, just as you are not interested in wasting money. If you do the work though, your money will be well spent. That’s a guarantee.
Advantages of Email Coaching
- The process of consistently writing thoughts and emotions down is proven to have some of the same effects as seeing a therapist.
- You can sit down in your own time and articulate where you are in your creating process, and where you may experience some challenge.
- Writing in privacy may encourage some people to open up.
- You can save and reread the emails we exchange anytime you feel you need reminding of what we talked about.
- Email coaching is less expensive than coaching via phone or Skype.
- It’s a shame to let amazing unused potential remain unused when just a little help could be what you need, to bring you to life.
Advantages of One-to-One Coaching
- Some people benefit best from the visual “face-to-face” interaction of meeting via Skype.
- Conversation flows freely and we can quickly get to the “nitty-gritty” stuff.
- A lot of progress can be accomplished in 45 minutes session.

“Katja is an imaginative, intuitive and caring coach whose enthusiasm and kindness is contagious. I highly recommend her groups and creativity coaching. I am still benefiting from the session I had with her.”
-Jill Badonsky, author/illustrator and founder of KMCC training.
“Working with Katja was such a treat! She is brilliant and creative and so supportive. I felt truly “seen” and “gotten” which gave me the courage to be myself. Katja and I worked on my lifelong desire to journal (which I had never been able to get off the ground) and here I am now, at 48, with inked pages filling up in my journal! Working with Katja will be one of the best investments you can make in yourself and your creative practice! I wholeheartedly recommend her coaching to anyone who wants to express more creativity in their lives and enjoy the process!”
