Why hiring a creative coach?
The purpose of hiring a creative coach is for you to have a deeper understanding of your relationship with your creative self, and require tools in coping with life’s hurdles that are blocking your creative potential and flow. It's not about how to have a problem-free life. It's about how to live a life with problems AND be able to live joyful, at ease, and yes- CREATIVE.
I'm here to help you find the reason why you do what you do, and why you're stuck in dreaming and not doing. We address topics such as; procrastination, self-sabotage, self-judgment and inner critic, imposter syndrome, fear of being a failure, a loser, not good enough, being confused, stuck, and blocked, stressed, healing shame, overcoming doubts, perfectionism, and limiting believes.
As a licensed Art Therapist and a certified Life Coach, I'm trained to guide you through the creative process.
Through our work together, you will:
Learn to trust what you feel and sense.
Expand your creative thinking and creative living (opening your mind to more ideas, expanding your mind to think in ways it never had before, coming up with new and better solutions and visions).
Learn how to handle difficult emotions
Feel a deeper sense of connection to your creative self and to others.
Build your self-esteem and confidence
Develop your own creative style that is beyond any learned technique.
Generate self-compassion and inner strength and stability.

How my journey started
I’m an unlikely artist.
I never spent hours painting and being creative. I remember feeling the desire for creativity burning within me, but instead of following it, I repressed and ignored it. I was too stuck in my fears and too loyal to my own harsh judgments, negative beliefs, high expectations, and self-sabotage tendencies. But the desire to create didn’t go away.
Finally, in 2012 I discovered Art therapy and intuitive painting. I had to drop all my ideas of how I “should” paint and how the end product “should” look. Instead, I learned to explore, listen to my body’s impulses, and trust what my soul wanted to give birth to.

Online or in-person
I started diving deeper into a daily meditation practice and observing my mind in action. With time I could find a way to cope with my fears, doubts, and build up my self-esteem and access my creativity in a very deep and meaningful way.
Art therapy, mindful coaching, and meditation became the ground tools in my daily life and my art process. This helps me to create from abundance rather from low self-worth and validation seeking and lack mindset.
I would love to offer my experience, knowledge, and guidance to you.
I love connecting and mentoring other creative souls and helping them move from where they are today to where they wholeheartedly want to be.
"Working with aniko and going through the expressive paint therapy process has helped me in so many ways. I feel much more grounded, safe, calm and connected. My stress and anxieties has become less and I no longer escape my feeling as I used to. I know myself better than before. I discovered parts in me I never knew I had!."
