“After a coaching call with Andy I feel listened to, understood and befriended. It’s rare for me to find someone I can spill my dreams to in all their muddled glory, and be met with such multi-leveled and helpful questions. I found insight, clarity and more curiosity coming to me as we spoke and long after. I appreciate his acceptance, encouragement and how he honours the experimentation inherent in our unfolding journeys. Andy is a relief, a kind soul, and a skilled coach.” – Lindsay Celeste
Are you a gentle rebel? Do you dream of a more creatively caring, and compassionate world?
Many gentle rebels sacrifice their deep personal dreams when they put other peoples’ preferences, demands, and desires first. The empathy, compassion and concern that makes them who they are, can actually lead them away from what truly matters most.
- Are you ready for some support as you discover what you truly want from life?
- Is it time to answer that intuitive nudge that tells you there is something remarkable waiting for you?
- Do you want someone with you as you take that next step into the unknown?
If you’ve answered yes to any of those questions, you might be ready for a creative shift.
I help gentle rebel individuals and small businesses use their natural wholehearted care, creativity, and compassion, as foundations to shift towards an energising and sustainable future.
I specialise in supporting introverts, deeply sensitive people, and creative “misfits“. Gentle rebels who long to create a life that fits who they are, but sometimes struggle to know what that looks like for them.
By believing the assumptions, demands, and expectations from the world around them, they’ve had to bend themselves out of shape in order to squeeze into the unnatural mould.
Shift From Blending In or Stepping Back
I know how lonely and disconnecting it feels when everyone else around seems to ‘get it’. When you’re left wondering, “what’s wrong with me”.
Maybe you’ve tried to blend in (The Insider). Or you’ve withdrawn to the shadows (The Outsider). But the superficiality of the first option is far too draining. And the festering resentment and isolation goes against your caring instincts with the second option.
So here you are; you’ve tried everything. Maybe it’s time to concede defeat. To just accept that you’re broken and keep trudging along, hanging in there, and attempting to cope.
Woah there…wait a sec! What if there is another way? Where you don’t have to play some imagined role of The Insider or The Outsider. And instead you can be, well…you?
You Are a Gentle Rebel
Gentle rebellion is a mixture of who you are (that fire in your belly), and what you are drawn towards becoming.
We find our inner gentle rebel when our deep values, big dreams, and everyday pathways all converge.
And this is where the support of a coach makes SUCH a difference. Because the smallest shift in perspective can make the biggest transformation that reaches into every area of your life. From you career into your health, relationships, spirituality, and creative pursuits.
With a coach you will gain an intellectual appreciation of what is possible. But more than that, you will FEEL the energy of possibility. And have someone cheering you on, keeping you focussed, and celebrating with you as you step into your power and potential.
You’ll turn your values into intentions, and your intentions into small but powerful actions.
As you do, your life will change from the inside out. And so will your personal beliefs about what it really means to be you.
“If you don’t prioritise your life, someone else will.” — Greg McKeown
The Creative Shift Approach
Through my Creative Shift Coaching, I help gentle rebels find their own rhythm and move at their own pace. So they can start to embody their own exciting belief in the possibility of what they want to change.
What if the way things ARE didn’t have to dictate how things will continue to be?
Working together, we will wander (and sometimes wade) through the sludge that holds you down. The stagnant ruts, expectations from other people, and stories about what you “should” be, do, or desire.
Before you know it, your feet rise above that boggy ground. Your spirit will feel lighter. And you’ll be running with deep intention and hopefulness towards a life you can’t help but fall in love with.
- As we work together you will become aware of and connected to your deepest values.
- You’ll relinquish and reframe the beliefs you hold about who you are and what you’re capable of.
- You’ll begin doing more of what truly matters to YOU, less (and eventually none) of what doesn’t.
- And this will give you an ever deepening sense of who you truly are, in a world that hasn’t always allowed or encouraged you to be you.
Regardless of how old you are or where you’ve been up to now. This is not the end of the story!
There is a new and exciting chapter is waiting to be written…
So, shall we get writing, designing, creating the next season of your life!?
