What are we going to do?
We will work on different challenges in a creative life, like reality, goals, and meaning.

This is a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential space to share your experience and feelings.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn how other artists deal with their issues.
How does it work?
The idea is to bring together individuals who face the same challenges.

What is Group Coaching?

What makes it different from other conversations is its impact on you – the client. Group coaching brings the coaching conversation into a small group context. It’sIt’s an intimate conversation space focused on goal setting, increasing awareness around different key issues.
Creative coaching is similar to life coaching but focuses on your creative work and journey. It helps you to understand and work on your creative skills.
During a coaching session, you identify where you are now, where you would like to be, and what’s standing in the way. You then work on these internal and external obstacles using different Creativity Coaching tools.

Here’s what people have to say about my coaching:
“Kesem’s coaching has helped me to have a clearer view of my creative projects and goals. Since the first session, we have understood and focused on my goals. From a very comprehensive plan, I slowly saw each step needed to finalize my project. As a result, it was easier to see results and find motivation along the way. It was easy to feel comfortable talking and explaining things to Kesem; she is very organized and professional. The communication was prompt and clear. “
Interior designer, Amsterdam
“Kesem helped me have a calm approach to shaping my creative ideas and being more productive.
It was beneficial to put a name on a feeling or a challenge and understand how to deal with it and move forward. For example, I found out that I was unaware that I could get support for my creative call and that I struggled to express it; that was a huge step”.
Graphic designer, Amsterdam
“Having a creative coach helped me better understand why I’m an artist. Having a coach that is an artist herself and who understands my issues was beneficial. The coaching process helped me to change my mindset about my art-making.”

In addition, she helped me clarify the steps I wanted to take and create an action plan. Getting this support helped me to get motivated and take action.
