About Artist Coaching:
Throughout my own training, development and into my professional career as an artist myself; I have increasingly recognised the need for and value of coaching within the creative arts industries. I have taken on this role within my work as an educator, and have observed the benefit of coaching and mentoring as a valuable and essential means for growth. I aim to facilitate a safe space for artists to share challenges, gain understanding, and work towards developing resilience, self-awareness and building a sustainable career. I see coaching as immensely valuable for those within professional education, those entering into their profession upon graduation, and I believe that professional artists at any point in their career can benefit from the support and space provided from coaching.
Far from being simply an exercise in seeking and giving advice, effective coaching is a much deeper and richer experience. Within my coaching, as with my teaching, I strive to work with and alongside my clients, working on an individual-needs basis, facilitating and supporting their reflection, their personal, professional and artistic development, and guiding them to discover the depths and scope of their abilities. I aim to create a safe, stimulating environment where a client can identify challenges and pursue their potential. Overall, as a coach, my job is to empower my clients to reflect, discover, take action and make informed decisions to create positive change in their personal, professional and artistic lives.
Artist Coaching is specifically intended for those entering into, working in or professionally associated with the creative industries. It is intended to guide a person to develop a stronger self-awareness, acceptance of existing strengths and challenges, gain an understanding of the impact of others’ and ones’ environment, improve networking, connection and communication, and to help clients make informed decisions in moving forward. This is a personalised process, in which I will aim to foster self-directed learning and the personal growth of the individual; artist and human being.
I look forward to walking alongside you on your journey.
“Deciding for the Artist Coaching with Anna-Lise was a very good decision and experience. I’m very happy that I met her.
She supported me in different areas of my life and in all the questions I had around my artistic career and life journey. She always had a good task as a response to my topic or question so that I was able to move forward. She had a great sensitivity in how much she guided me as well as in how much she was able to let me go on my own. It was wonderful to receive new impulses and ideas for my next steps. I admire her a lot for her way of working so structured, prepared and creative as an artist herself and as an Artist Coach for others. With her open minded, kind, joyful and loving personality I felt I was always in a safe space, taken seriously, supported and appreciated. I will definitely reach out to Anna -Lise again for further support through Artist Coaching in the future.”
