I’m forever grateful for Esther’s support

Working with Esther is the best thing I did for my business in the year and a half since I started it! Esther helped me reconnect with myself,  get clarity on what I want and set a path on achieving that in a way I am comfortable with and it didn’t take long to see the results. I often finish our sessions by calling her a “miracle-doer”.
I worked with Esther for 6 months and although there was a plan I never felt rushed by a schedule. Esther was very flexible and she would adjust the session to my needs (and business).
She is incredible at tuning in to your needs, to the situation and identifying (underlying) issues I was not always aware of. I’m forever grateful for Esther’s support.

You pushed me out of my comfort zone in order to live a more creative life.

Through the Creative Journey program I elevated myself to a point of truly understanding my needs and myself. It transcended both my personal comfort zone as well as my culture’s comfort zone.
It kindly pushed me out of my comfort zone in order to live a more creative life and was in the company of like minded women.
I seriously don’t know how to thank you, Esther, you got me out of a terrible creative rut and, because of the things I’ve learned from you, I’ve helped a couple of fellow artists who were suffering that terrible block we all seem to go through every once in a while.

I am already creative enough and do not need to compare myself.

You have inspired me to reconnect to my own sense of creativity! You have reminded me that I am already creative enough and not to compare myself to others who I think are ‘more creative’.

The joy and the sparkling in her eyes is back.

Hi Esther,
I hope it's okay to send you this email, but I want you to to know how happy my wife Susan is after you coached her.  A few months ago Susan was – again – looking for a “regular” job. She was not able to fulfill her long lived passion of working as a designer from her home studio. She had tried many ways to make it work, called in the help from many people. But nothing really changed. Until she found you, I noticed there was a click right away. She asked me if it was okay if we invested the money in a coaching program with you. I could only say sure.  
And I’m so glad she did, I saw the change within days after your first session. The joy and the sparkling in her eyes is back. I really have been missing those. After one month she made more profit than the whole year before. She is so happy now, and I just wanted to let you know, and thank you for it.

It opened my creative perspective and it was a warm and sparkling journey.

Being part of your creative soul program certainly opened my creative perspective. It was a warm and sparkling journey. It’s very hard to express what it really did to me, but - without a doubt-  it  was very good.

Your Art Program gave me the energy I had been deprived of for a long time.

I meditated on a hill and rested against a very firm tree with a lot of branches, and no leafs  and my first impuls was: "space".   
As an artists who realized her dreams and has her own candy store filled with crayons, color pencils and paint and lives in complete freedom  and teaches this to other people as well it was such a huge revelation for me to find out I needed even more space!  
Space for me!
Creating art with Esther provided me with the energy I had lacked for such a very long time. Apparently playing in someone elses garden is essential.  That's why I need these kinds of gifts for myself.  
Painting with my fingers, realizing -- for the the first time in my life --- that drawing can come forth out of me, with incredible ease.  
Thank you Esther, for your humor,  your gently self-mockery and the pleasant atmosphere in which you unite beautiful people and where you give them the opportunity to find important things for themselves.

Nothing bad happens when I color outside the lines

I created art with Esther for one entire Sunday.  I never considered myself a creative woman. At least not in an 'Artsy Way'.  High School Art Class trauma's :-). But it turned out to be such a delightful relaxed day.  
More than that it taught me so much: nothing bad happens when I color outside the lines, beauty is often found in simplicity and sometimes you need to listen to your inner voice instead of the outside world.

Full attention for the process, for playing and exploring.

This was a huge gift to myself. Not working on the end result, but the full attention for the process, playing and exploration. The wonderful relaxed and hospitable location, the delicious lunch  and loving, openen encouraging guidance of Esther. It all resulted into a great day.   A full day being amazingly imperfect? Just do it!

The Creative Journey has been deeply transformative for me.

I was surprised how much I loved the whole experience. The journey taught me to rely on my unique creativity. I never knew my creative magic power was this big! It feels great. Building, experimenting and creating things - I loved the feeling of playing without feeling the fear of the outcome! This was so much fun.

I feel energized and motivated and a lot clearer on my next steps.

I feel energized and motivated and a lot clearer on my next steps. Thank you Esther, for a fun and very helpful creative challenge!The assignments were simple but helped me gain some big insights – I reconnected with the playful, messy side of creativity, that I’ve been neglecting for a while. I feel energized and motivated and a lot clearer on what steps to take next in my jewelry business.

Esther reconnected me with inner self and my own creative business.

I never thought of myself as being creative (what might seems funny since I am an artist) but being creative and multi passionate felt more like a burden than this bright inner light.
All those ideas without not translating it into action convince me that I was rather useless. I was ready to get a job in a large bank but totally loaded the whole idea. I just needed someone to shine a light on who I was! Esther helped me finding my true purpose and my unique gifts that I’d lost in the fog. She and I built a new business where I could use everything – my creativity, knowledge and experience – I had neglected.It was hard sometimes, but totally worth it. I’ve been reconnected with my inner self and my own creative business.

Esther reconnected me with inner self and my own creative business

Esther challenged me to be seriously about my aims and to share my capacities with the world. Esther is a creative thinker, who challenges me to be seriously about my aims and to share my capacities with the world. We worked together as trainers and sparring partners. To me her creativity knows no borders, she is positive and a incorrigible romantic who is capable of making beautiful connections.
Esther visualizes ideas in colors and shapes while getting to the bare essentials.

I always give others space to do what they love. Now it's my turn!

I saw your program on Facebook and immediately thought : "I want this!" And wham, went back to 'being busy '. After one I week I realized: this I always do. Not taking the time to do what I love to do while giving others ample space to do what they love . Then I immediately signed up (...) .
It was lovely The freedom to be messy. Not doing something useful, but be fully presence in the moment. I run into myself all the time: how do I look to things I create? Can I see what's really there, or do I look through a very old pait of glasses. Going through the process and right back to the moment. Incredibly informative and most definitely something to do again!

I've got focus and clarity and use that in my work in ways I would never thought possible..

 I had been working as a coach and consultant for large firms for over 10 years. But disliked the way I had to work. Following guidelines, not showing who I really was.  I knew I needed a huge change.
Being a coach myself I had a hard time asking for advice. I thought I needed to be able to fix myself.  But I needed a fresh perspective, clarity. And as it turned out I needed a shoulder to cry and lean on.  What amazed me was how fast Esther saw right through that professional mask. I never felt awkward though. She has warmth, kindness and humor. She picked up on things I thad taken for granted. My love for music and healing people by it.  She encouraged me to do go back to old passions I had given up on because I was never good enough. But playing the piano and singing was deeply inspirational and opened up a whole new world for me.
What has changed? My husband and I have become better friends (and lovers!), I have so much more attention for my children needs (I thought they didn't need me anymore). I've got focus and clarity and use that in my work in ways I would never thought possible.
