Private Coaching

With OTOA & Creative Life Practice Founder, Master Teacher & Coach, Gia Forakis

You do not need to be an artist to benefit from Creative Life Practice Private Coaching

 OTOA Creative Life Practice Coaching offers exceptional and   practical benefits for Creative Thinkers in Every Field & Any   Discipline.

 As a Creative Life Coach I am ready to assist you in where you   would like to manifest change in your professional or personal   or creative life, and to address it cohesively and comprehensively using   the well established principles of One-Thought-One-Action (OTOA)™ and   the tools of Creative Life Practice (CLP)™.

 OTOA Creative Life Practice Coaching is built upon the teachings of   CLP's 6 Aspects for Creative Influence, enabling me to assist clients   in addressing their concerns and goals, while introducing a life-long   approach for forging a clear path through challenges, untangling   obstacles, and reinvigorating a sense of purpose, possibility and creative   abundance.

OTOA CLP Coaching is for both artist and non-artists alike.  OTOA CLP Coaching offers care, context, support, and encouragement for a more unified sense of self.  I am not a therapist. I am teacher. I am your advocate. I am the coach in your corner.
