Hijinx Coaching for Creatives

The Arts have been unquestionably impacted by major global and national events. We want to create spaces for creatives (practical and administrative) to re-imagine and thrive in the coming years; cultivating their own role in the Welsh arts scene.

Hijinx is dedicated to creating development opportunities for the creative sector, and freelance workers who we rely on to create our work. To support the arts community of Wales, Hijinx are offering Transformational Coaching.

Who is Coaching for?.

Everyone! But in the context of Coaching with Hijinx, we are particularly keen to support freelance creatives (practical and administrative) and all other creative practitioners.

What is Transformational Coaching?.

Transformational Coaching is like life coaching but supports you to go beyond simply achieving goals. It explores a ‘deeper realm’ by challenging the way you view yourself and others, and your environment. It is a space dedicated to you and your future. It is important to understand that coaching is not mentoring or performance skills training. In coaching, you will not be told what to do. Coaching is a commitment you make to yourself – you remain accountable for your own choices and decisions in your journey.

Coaching Can...

  • Help you find clarity 
  • Challenge limiting thoughts 
  • Help you understand your motivations 
  • Set meaningful and challenging goals
  • Support a change away from habitual negative behaviours 
  • Support you to take stock of where you are at and where you are headed
  • Help you gain purpose and to become more self-aware 
  • Support a change in perspective to gain new insights 
  • Explore what is stopping you moving ahead in life

…Or anything limiting your future.

In reality – this is not therapy or counseling. But it is all connected. We will create a safe container, and work together on what it is you need to focus on to move forward.


How it will work...

Hijinx has allocated a fixed number of hours per week for reduced rate Coaching.

You can book your free Discovery Chat now by clicking this link: Book Now 

Discovery chats last up to 30 minutes.  

In this session, we will explore:

  • What are you working towards that coaching might support? 
  • What will success look, feel and sound like to you? 
  • How we would work together (including how many sessions, 4 or 6, and frequency) 

Coaching blocks are booked in 4 or 6 sessions, each session is up to 45 minutes in length. We recommend having 2-4 weeks between sessions to develop your thinking, and for you to have space to explore any developmental work you choose to take on. 


Your Discovery Call is free

  • 6 – 10 sessions booked in one block are £36 per 45min session
