"I felt like it was time to start doing the things that I love like my music and my writing

and I wanted to see the things that were preventing me in doing those things.


What made it easy for me to see the patterns was of course Marieke's extremely awesome coaching and verbalizing the thoughts and the drawings.

The drawing technique is very simple but you don't have to be an artist to just do this exercise it's very simple and everything comes from within"

How it helped Mikael

'In my job I reached a point of desperation. I wanted to create more ideas for myself. I had the hope that I could really do that but it was was difficult because around me nobody understood because they were all engineers.


I was always struggling to find a way I thought was going to change bit all the ideas did not take me forward at all. It was not creating space for myself and my ideas, in fact it created more work!

I was not able to translate my wishes it into something based on my own idea or ideals. When I finally started working for myself I got overwhelmed with fears and started to procrastinate my plans.

I then knew I had to try something else.


I didn't know what, so I just tried something new.


Through the mentoring with Marieke I became conscious about my own creative process. And I never considered my work as artistic. I am an engineer. But now I learned how to respect a creative process. Reinforcing that idea. The outcome of anything is very much a result of the process; it isn’t so much about the idea you have. Now I know it is possible to be successful in what I do and what that means to me. I now know more about how to execute the process. I already knew that but there is one thing a thing to understand intellectually and now I have more of an experience.

I like my new creative self that I discovered through the mentoring. I need to take my creative self more serious, and nurture it more. Make it into more of a long and continuous process instead of short burst."

How it helped Channa

"A one hour session created in an incidental, casual and playful way an incredible, clear and beautiful outlook and gave me direction in my own creative functioning and life.


Marieke guided me as a wizard through simple visualisation exercises, drawings and my own body experiences back to what really matters to me, what makes me happy and above all how I can apply that in everyday life.

If gift vouchers existed for this, then I knew it !!"

How it helped M.A.S.

"I got stuck because of having doubt and negative thought spirals. It meant that I was not starting with making something for myself. Creativity was something I had to do, it got lost among other duties like bringing shoes to the shoe maker and shopping. There was always something why I didn't have time. Therefor I lost the courage to start at all.

I was unsure if I would have enough time and energy for something extra in my life, but I decided I did not want to postpone it any longer.

The online call with Marieke in which we got to know each other better was very valuable, so I decided to start the coaching program.


For me it was great to schedule appointments. Marieke ensured that everything was OK to talk about. By that I mean everything that comes up, what happens in a day or a week, which I first thought was not part of it, there was a lot of space for that. That was very valuable. I now see that as an important part of the process as well.

I have learned to make space for my own creativity, to learn to protect myself. That my energy and time I spent on being creative has an effect on what my life looks like, what I attract, what happens to me and how I feel.

The fact that there is someone who thinks along with me and does not judge, took away so much of my negativity. It was motivating to share my process and inspired to continue with my ideas.

After coaching I especially feel that there is something else.

That I again feel that motivation, that I feel something fresh again.


My creativity is not something which feels like I want to do or have to do, or haven’t done it for a long time. I now feel like getting started, I have a lot of new ideas and new energy has been added.

Now I do not want to be overwhelmed by factors that I do not know how they effect me. I now want to stay more in tune with the process and continue to do things and not avoid the confrontation. My feeling to stand up for myself so that I can make more time free for my own project has grown.
