One-on-One Creativity Coaching
Sometimes you need someone to talk to, a shoulder to lean on, a mentor, guide, a consultant or coach. Someone who has your best interests in mind and listens to you with no agenda except to listen compassionately and openly to intuitively guide you in accordance with your highest creative well-being.
My consulting work varies from person to person because no two individuals are alike. Therefore no two sessions are alike. To understand how I work, please take a further look at the questions and answers below.
What’s the end result of a session or a series of sessions?
The end result is that your creativity will be enhanced, your stress reduced, and your peace deepened. You will feel creative, and you will remember that you already are creative. You will feel inspired and productive. You will know the source of your creativity as an unstoppable benevolent force found out beyond the field of right or wrong.* Recognizing, honoring and embracing your vision and voice, you will gain confidence. You gain a sense of authorship for your life. You have that get-up-and-go feeling that knows what action to take because you know the direction in which to move. Your dreams and goals are activated, a sense of sovereignty and peace returns.
How do you do this?
We address questions like: What you would love to create in your life? What is the next step in your life or in the life of your business or organization that will amplify its creative potential?
We look at the Creative Principles that already act in your life or the life of your business. Then we move into expanding possibilities with positive appreciative questions. You will be heard at a level you have not been heard at before, and you will learn to hear your own intuitive voice at a level you have not heard it at before. You will find the steps and actions that easily move you beyond polarized thinking, the steps that will take you into your clear, creative center.
The practices we use include meditation, relaxation and guided imagery, practices that enhance intuitive development. Sometimes we work with writing and journaling. Sometimes we work with sound and movement: Toning, mantra, affirmation, and when suitable or invited, non-denominational prayer. We accent your strengths to gently move you in the direction that gives you energy.
It’s all in the listening.
Who is this work appropriate for?
The individuals I have worked with have been in every field from advertising executives to retired professionals, artists, young mothers and homemakers, creative people who are temporarily blocked, people in transition, the stressed and the grieving. I have worked with atheists and fundamentalists, in person and by phone.
Corporations, medical groups, and women’s groups have used this work to reduce stress in themselves and their organizations while enhancing their creativity.
What’s the bottom line?
Peace. You walk away with a feeling of peace and relaxation,
knowing a deeper level of comfort, creativity, and compassion for yourself.
You have a sense of authorship and strength that guides you in your life.

Elizabeth conducts tailored individual and group sessions and people who work with her rave about her. I am one. In just one session, she was able to improve my interview performance significantly. I know the agency world, and I believe any agency could benefit from having someone like Elizabeth available. However, there is only one Elizabeth. Her perceptiveness, creativity, articulateness and especially her intuitive sensibility set her apart.

Elizabeth helped me regain my confidence and focus. A session with Elizabeth is like taking a two-week vacation.

Elizabeth Welles is more than a healer. She’s an inspiration. She invoked my creativity, which I feared had seen its day. She empowers, inspires and encourages. Thank you for reminding me I am an artist.
When I met with Elizabeth, I was blocked creatively, overwhelmed by to do lists and responsibilities. All I said to her was ‘I need help feeling creative again. I’m burned out.’ From that wonderful session with her sprang forth a wealth of creative ideas. I put to use the suggestions she had to enhance my creative writing space and things to do to nourish my spirit. The creative spurt has not halted, thank Goodness. I thank Elizabeth.
