Now Offering Email Coaching
For $79 you get 6 weeks of email coaching. (That’s $13,16 a week)
We communicate through email once a week (1 day), where you tell me about how you’re doing with your creative work, what your struggles are 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 a week.
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.
“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 life long 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!”
– Samantha Sinclair, San Francisco
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.
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: selfcare,
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 is focused on the process and uses small, realistic steps.
Why is the coaching over 6 weeks?
Because I belive 6 weeks will give you a little momentum, while also honoring that life happens and sometimes gets in the way of good intentions.
Why email coaching?
I love writing emails and I have personally had great help from email correspondence. Also, I live in Denmark and I work during the day, so between the time difference and work/family balance, email coaching is the most flexible.
On top of that, it suits my introvert nature 🙂
Who could benefit from creativity coaching?
Someone who wants to do creative work, or someone who wish to to create a change in their life.
This coaching is right brain focused, and is about the work itself.
These 3 stages of creating could be you
- You have trouble starting your project(s). Maybe you have many ideas and is overwhelmed by what to do and where to begin. Or maybe you lose interest quickly and begin the next idea, but this makes you a forever starter.
- You are stuck in the middle? (creative chaos). You feel insecure now the first excitement has worn off, so you stop. (This is where 80% of us quit).
- Or maybe you have trouble finishing your projects. That finishing line keeps moving because you’re forever tweaking and obsessing over details.
Who would NOT benefit from this coaching?
Someone who thinks I have to work harder than the client and someone who is not willing to do the work. And someone who thinks I can “fix” her and make her achieve her dream/goal.
I can’t make anyone do anything. You have to want to create/change and realize, that in the end, it is up to you. I can help you and give you tools and encouragement. But you have to do the work.
Can I pay in installment?
No, this is a one time fee.
Can I get a refund?
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.
