In this blog I want to explain what I mean when I talk about art-based coaching and therefore why I feel it has such an important place in coaching.
“Even though we’re working with very serious things, it’s a joyful, playful space to work and very powerful” I was delighted to be invited to start off the Association for Coaches podcast series Let's Make Coaching Creative' led by Maxi
In this coaching uncaged podcast with Animas Centre Director Robert Stephenson I explore art-based approaches to coaching. If you want to know more about what I do and art based coaching have a listen to this 46 min chat.
Art and communication is nothing new. 100,000 years ago human beings came out of Africa, spreading across the whole world, taking with them this amazingly complex brain that we all share today. A brain that drove us then and drives us now to communicate, explore and be creative.
I spend a lot of time talking to coaches to find out how art is used in coaching today and have discovered that that a lot of coaches use art in their practice although may not recognise it as such.
