My Approach to Coaching + Services

“Every time Harriet coached me I was left with an amazing feeling of lightness and the ability to see more clearly around the topics I brought to our talks. “

-Balázs

Hello there lovely human

I'm here to help you overcome your life challenges with playful curiosity, and a big dose of self-compassion.

A potential client came to see me about a spoon.

Her young child picked one up from under their kitchen table, giggled, and joyfully gestured ‘sssssss’ through the air, like a snake weaving towards her. 

She told me as she watched him immersed in his playing, she felt this awkwardness, a great sadness that she herself couldn’t see the spoon like that, and just not feeling able to let go and join in. She wanted to know if this imaginative, playful side of her was lost forever or just buried beneath the serious business of day-to-day adulting.

We worked together, and…

It was a great experience for me as a rational and straightforward person. Harriet helped me to fully express my creativity as well as to see and feel part of the world I couldn’t see/feel before by being mindful every day! Thanks Harriet!”

Perhaps something here resonates about where you are at right now;

  • Feeling tired/exhausted/overwhelmed/stressed out
  • Feeling stuck in an unhappy or challenging situation, relationship or job
  • Lacking clarity and direction in a project or transitional point in your life
  • Trying to please, or always giving to others, having little time for your own self-care
  • Feeling a lack of self-confidence or sense of self, it feels like you don’t ‘fit in’
  • Lack of sense of excitement, or feelings of joy, creativity and spontaneity in your life

There is a different way to be.
My unique approach using arts based coaching methods, mindfulness practice and deep conversations, helps clients IMAGINE and BREATHE again.

 I help people transform from SURVIVING to THRIVING. We begin by moving past the logical into tapping into the more emotional, felt sense, through using colours, mark making, collage, image postcards. We collaborate to uncover new perspectives to use to define goals together, reconnecting clients with their Playful, Creative and more intuitive mindset.

There are NO recent art experiences required, or good art / bad art judgements that might be a vulnerability hangover from school. Art and creative methods are used as a process, of high sensitivity and low skill, to allow us to relax and unwind a busy mind to be more mindfully present, and release new and powerful ideas from the unconscious intuition.

My approach to 1-2-1 coaching sessions

I work with clients on a personalised 1-2-1 basis to make transformational shifts in their personal and professional lives, from finding your life purpose to empowering you to gain clarity to change career. I use my Toolkit of Creative and Transformational Life Coaching conversations and models such as Narrative Coaching, Clean Coaching, NLP, Mindfulness Coaching, blended in with Creative Journaling, Art Meditations, Visualisations and Mindfulness Journaling Practice. Read more About Me here.

We would initally meet for a free virtual coffee of around 45 minutes (a discovery call) and decide whether we’d want to work together on a specific goal. Within this time I include a 5 minute playful self activity so you can get some magical shifts happening straight away. Then, if it feels a good fit, we’d begin with a block of sessions.

As this process is client-led we begin with a 90 minute session, opening up your creativity and more curious self through meditation and creative journaling, to allow focusing deep understanding, and defining the challenge you wish to work on together.

Across the five 60 minutes sessions you talk, I listen with curiosity, ask questions, and offer verbal, visual and creative tools, to help you express yourself in new ways, shift perspectives, and find your own unique path, and powerful breakthroughs within.

 “I always felt so scattered but Harriet’s coaching helped me fine-tune goals and work in a more focused and efficient way.

Working with Groups

As a Creative Entrepreneur and Founder of little art, I also run an online Creative Self-Care Group Programme which complements my coaching work and clients have taken both paths together with me. This combined approach deep dives a mindfulness daily practice, and helps clients to live everyday more intuitively and mindfully. I also run (Remote) Creative Team Events, building teams through reconnecting with our sense of playfulness. More about my own life journey is here.
