When we are stuck, blocked, resistant, depressed, anxious, confused, or are straining to be other people's idea of what we should be, this is reflected in reduced well being, creativity, enjoyment of work and everyday life. To be naturally creative and live fully, we need self awareness, openness, playfulness, spontaneity, receptivity, connectedness, compassion and acceptance - all qualities developed through Mindful Creativity Coaching. Develop awareness, relaxation and presence, free creativity in whatever you do, and increase your well being and appreciation of daily life. You do not have to be artistic - people from many walks of life come to me for personal and professional reasons.


What Clients Say

I want to thank Zangmo Alexander for her help and support with some serious issues in my life. She is a caring, supportive individual that can almost see into your soul. She has helped me clarify many recent issues plus helped with an "action plan" for dealing with these issues. Her coaching is incredibly astute and personal. I would recommend those of you considering coaching to contact Zangmo. - K.G.

The Benefits of Mindfulness

For cen­tur­ies med­it­at­ors, doc­tors and heal­ers in east­ern tra­di­tions such as Buddhism, Hinduism and Tao­ism have be­lieved that mind­ful­ness and med­it­a­tion im­proves health and well-be­ing. Now sci­ent­ists are find­ing evid­ence for this.

As mind­ful­ness med­it­a­tion be­came in­creas­ingly ac­cep­ted in Europe and Amer­ica, sci­ent­ists began to re­search its ef­fects. Clin­ical stud­ies have doc­u­mented how it helps people stay health­ier, im­prove men­tal focus and feel less over­whelmed by emo­tions. Used as a sec­u­lar heal­ing tool in mod­ern health care and ther­apy, reg­u­larly prac­tising mind­ful­ness and med­it­a­tion have been shown to lessen suf­fer­ing and im­prove phys­ical, emo­tional and men­tal well being.

Very often, I have doubts of my abil­it­ies to paint, but my time with Zangmo has shown me how I can un­der­stand and ad­dress these de­bil­it­at­ing thoughts that can   in­hibit my cre­at­ive­ness and the need to ex­press my­self.    G.R, Kent    Dur­ing my 3 day re­treat you helped me to identify coun­ter­pro­duct­ive habits that have been in­hib­it­ing my growth.   I felt that we made real pro­gress and that I left with a dif­fer­ent out­look on what I want to get out of the next chapter in my life.     Your ex­per­i­ence as a prac­ti­cing artist, teacher and coach com­bined with the fact that you wasted no time in get­ting down to what really mat­ters to me meant that this was a very valu­able 3 days and money well spent.  Thank you!    Geor­gina B, Lon­don    These ses­sions have helped me to define my broad goals, to set short term tar­gets and to find the con­fid­ence to ex­pand and ex­plore my work as a tex­tile artist.

What is Mindfulness?

As mindfulness entails being aware, accepting our experience as it happens, with practice we become less caught up with concepts and anxiety about the future on the basis of our suffering from the past. We are in the present moment. This can really open us up to appreciating and enjoying the amazing qualities of the ever living present moment. We can relax, truly enjoy ourselves while appreciating what we are seeing, feeling and doing!


How can Mindful Creativity Coaching help me?

I offer completely personalised, confidential Mindful Creativity Coaching, Life Coaching and Personal Coaching sessions in a relaxed, informal atmosphere in beautiful Botesdale, Suffolk, or by Skype or phone. You choose the agenda and how you would most like to work. I support you, helping you raise your awareness and understanding about how you would like to move forward.

Topics include but are not limited to:

Dissolve blocks, procrastination, resistance, fear, anxiety and negative beliefs sabotaging your personal, creative and professional development

Support going professional with creative practice, or if you are already a creative professional, support with professional development to move your business forward, deepen and progress your creative work or change direction

Support for women: women in particular find difficulty making time to nourish themselves through creative activities. If you are keen to integrate creativity into your life, Mindful Creativity Coaching can support you in learning to balance creative work with other areas of your life, such as relationships, time management, physical health, social and family life and spirituality

Developing a body of creative work takes patience, perseverence and committment, just for starters. Mentoring and coaching can be a tremendous ongoing support, particularly when self doubt, blocks, anxiety and other issues poke their heads up
