Life Coaching using Art is a popular trend in providing relief and addressing psychological and emotional needs through art media and the creative process. It has been found to be helpful in areas such as: fostering self-expression, creating coping skills, managing stress, and strengthening sense of self to name a few. We promote the use of art-making using a variety of medium to produce a wide cadre of art designs and activities for adults and children.
Throughout the exploration of these activities participants make sense of, and find their way out of chaos, frightful memories, and the raw emotions or their challenges to discover a sense of grounding, strength, safety, understanding, and hope. Therapeutic Art Life Coaching helps provide an empowering outlet for persons, where the telling of painful and challenging experiences do not have to be spoken aloud, but can be communicated through the language and reflection of art expressions.
The Art of Motivation has worked with European Union through Eve for Life, the Rose Town Youths via the World Bank, University of the West Indies, Jamaica National and other corporate clients to assist participants cope with domestic violence, enhance their time management skills, deal with change management, cope with poverty and anxiety, relieve stress etc.
