It takes courage to take the step to get a mindset coach to support you in your creative business, but it’s often one of the best things you can do for your business. When you take the time to invest in a coach that can support you with what you’re currently experiencing at the individual level, you often don’t even realize just how beautiful the outpouring of wonderful side effects can be!
Mindset coaching is a form of coaching under the ‘life coaching’ umbrella that focuses specifically on utilizing your mindset as a power and not a hindrance to your life and, consequently, your business. Of course, every single coach has their specialties, but as a mindset coach, I can support you in breaking free from limiting beliefs and comparisons, grow your confidence, help you reconnect with your intuition, set empowering boundaries with yourself and others, and more (curious to learn more about me and my coaching programs?

In this post, I’m going to take you through the reasons why (and of course, HOW) a mindset coach supports you as a creative entrepreneur.
I intentionally start with this point because I believe it is the greatest asset about having a mindset coach in your life: we hold space for you. We hold space for your deepest worries, thoughts and fears. We’re here to listen, to hold a safe and non-judgmental space, and allow you to freely express yourself so you can work through what you’re experiencing. A mindset coach will ask you intentional, probing questions in this safe space and guide you to elicit the answers from within. Of course, I can’t speak for every mindset coach, but we also have a range of tools, models, and resources we pull out in our client sessions to support you.
A mindset coach (or any coach, really) must be giving you the tools, the ability, and the space to come to your own answer. Of course, we’re always there to offer advice and expertise, but we encourage you to look inward first.
If you have a coach who just tells you what to do or exchanges information with you… it’s simply not going to lead you in the empowering way that your soul dreams to be led. Coaching has to be about you being able to elicit the answers from within so that you are developing your own tools and resistance for years to come! A coach should not develop a co-dependent relationship with you where you feel like you need them to be successful or can’t do it without them. A coach should empower.
I think this is one of the things that my mindset coaching clients appreciate the most! The normalization aspect. Every coach is different, but I myself have a very collegiate approach, meaning that I get down in the trenches with you to share my own experience (when you ask for it, of course), to show you that any ‘mistake’ or ‘error’ you may feel you made, I’ve likely made too! Imposter syndrome, for example, is something that so many entrepreneurs face and it’s only recently being talked about more in the online space.
There’s something so empowering and also comforting in hearing that you’re not alone in something. I try to give that to my clients as much as possible.
There’s so much pressure in the online space to have it together at all times… to be perfect to be a leader… but showing someone else that they’re not alone is one of the kindest and most empowering things you can do (and receive!)
This is the most precious piece of a mindset coaching relationship. Yes, the 1:1 sessions are awesome—Voxer access, fabulous. But what is going to create the most long-lasting change in your life and business is the creation of a mindset toolbox, filled with modalities, prompts, resources and other tools for you to draw on when you’re struggling.
This is so special because it’s something you will have forever beyond the duration of your time with your coach!
I’ve been building my mindset mastery toolbox for over 20 years, and I still return to some of the earliest tools I added to my toolbox! That’s why it’s important to remember that a mindset coach isn’t just about investment for your time together… it’s an investment that will continue to improve your life for years to come!
This is one thing that gives my clients the most power and support between sessions: the accountability to get what they need doing in between sessions. Sometimes, having a coach that will check in with you at mutually agreed-upon check-in points is exactly what you need to get done what you need doing!
Now I say that with a grain of salt because as a coach, I’ll never impose upon you what you should be doing… I’ll merely hold you accountable for the empowering next steps and goals we set along the way of working together! I cater my approach to the client. For example, some clients ask me to assign homework, while others prefer I check in periodically throughout the week to help them stay on top of their overall intentions for themselves and their business.
Recognizing that you’re being held back by limiting beliefs is often one of the first reasons why someone decides to get the support of a mindset coach… but not always! Sometimes it’s not until you’re getting support for something else entirely, do we realize that there’s actually a deeply ingrained limiting belief that’s holding you back!
Limiting beliefs are beliefs that are limiting us from who and what we really and truly are and want to be. They’re typically deeply ingrained into us from an experience (or series of experiences) from a young age. Sometimes, they’re rooted in the beliefs our parents either advertently or inadvertently instilled into us (even with the purpose of love!)
Limiting beliefs are something that I work through with every single one of my clients. Some of the limiting beliefs we work through are ones they’re able to name at the onset of us working together, whereas others only surface after we dive deep into a completely unrelated topic. But once you uncover one of them, raise awareness of the pattern and create a plan to rewire it… it feels like absolute bliss on the other side… I want this for you!
I’m a transformational mindset coach absolutely obsessed with giving my fellow creatives the tools, resilience, and relationship to their intuition they need to truly thrive in the online space. So whether you’re looking for the accountability of a complete 1:1 coaching program or would like to work through an intensive 1-month together, I’m here to support you and your individual goals!
As a multi-passionate creative who’s lived + thrived through 20+ years of chronic anxiety, I love to help fellow creatives identify the magic already within them. I can help you with feelings of comparison, imposter syndrome, scarcity, shame, and other blocks that are standing between you and thriving in your creative business. I’m here to show you that there’s no one way of doing things… just your way.
