Coaching through painting from the subconscious:

What is painting from the subconscious?

Well very simply it is basically another form of self expression, like talking and writing and dancing and playing except its through the medium of painting. And anyone can do this whether they can paint or not!

It is childlike and fun. And it is a very individual process, there is no right or wrong way, and what you paint and how you paint is everything to do with you and absolutely nothing to do with anyone else. It is your space to do whatever you like, however you like without trying to do anything at all, and there is something very liberating about doing that and creating a space that is yours and yours alone, where comparison to what someone else does, just doesn’t need to exist.

And it is just a simple matter of giving yourself permission to allow yourself to just go with the flow of it, keeping in mind that the creative process is of surrender and not control and you are not trying to paint anything specifically. I believe we all have this capability on the inside, that, we are naturally creative and it is just a matter of letting it out.

I also want to point out that painting from the subconscious is not just about the final picture, but rather it is a journey in itself, and the journey is about you and there can be lots to learn along the way even if you think you are off track or not doing it right, there is lots of learning in that as well.

To me painting from the subconscious is a bit like dreaming, except that you’re awake and sometimes it has meaning and sometimes it doesn’t, and that doesn’t matter, and anything can happen and it’s a whole new world.

What I love about the process more than anything is the pure mystery that you never know what is going to happen next, (a bit like the Irish weather) and you never know what you are going to end up with, and there is something almost sacred about the process, that what needs to be revealed to you through the painting, and the experience, will be revealed to you and you then have the choice to do something with that or not.

How Coaching through painting has helped

"Wow, I learned so much about myself from painting, and I can’t even paint. It helped me to be nicer to myself and not worry about what other people think. It taught me that not everything has to be perfect all the time, and amazing things can come from imperfection. It also helped to surface old childhood hurts that needed healing. As a result I am much more relaxed and happier in myself and I have a self- acceptance that I didn’t have before. It also helped me to tune into my creativity and have fun at the same time”
