Who is Persephone?

Goddess of Spring & Queen of the Underworld

In the tapestry of mythology, few figures embody the cyclic archetypal experiences of descent (endings/change), spending time in the underworld (transition phase) and rebirth/ascent (new beginnings after deep transformation) like the ancient Greek Goddess Persephone who is unexpectedly plunged into the underworld, symbolizing the challenges and shadows we face in life.

In the darkness of the underworld, Persephone undergoes a profound metamorphosis. As she navigates the depths of her own psyche, she discovers wisdom, inner strength, and a newfound identity through integration of light and shadow. Her journey resonates with the cycles of life, death, and rebirth—reflecting the natural ebb and flow inherent in personal transformation.

The myth of Persephone provides a rich and symbolic framework that will inspire and guide us through the intricate and sometimes challenging process of  navigating change and transition in this 12-month coaching journey.

"Find your Answers on the journey from who you were to who you are becoming."

“The story of Persephone becomes a symbolic guide, mirroring the stages of personal growth and transformation. From reflection and the descent into the unknown to facing fears, embracing renewal, and finally emerging transformed, this program provides a sacred space for women to navigate life’s transitions with intention and purpose. The goal is to provide a nurturing environment and community for women to embrace change, celebrate growth, and step into their own power.” – Heather Hoeps

This unique integration allows you to not only gain practical skills for navigating real-world challenges but also tap into your spiritual and creative dimensions for a more comprehensive and transformative experience.
  2. Spiritual Tools for Deep Inner Exploration:

    • What sets this program apart is its emphasis on spiritual tools, particularly psychological tarot guidance, as a means of deep inner exploration.

FAQ

An online membership typically centers around a shared interest or community, offering online access to resources and networking until you cancel your membership.

 On the other hand, online group coaching is specifically designed for learning and personal development, involving structured coaching sessions, accountability, and interaction with both the coach and fellow participants. While both involve community, memberships focus on shared interests, while group coaching emphasizes learning and guidance within a group setting.

My group coaching involves guiding and supporting a collective of women in a shared learning environment, fostering group interaction and accountability. It’s about leveraging shared insights and creating a community of learning. On the other hand, one-on-one coaching offers a more personalized experience, where I work individually with a client, tailoring guidance to their specific needs and goals. It ensures a highly individualized and focused approach, allowing me to address the unique circumstances and objectives of each client.

Coaching with therapeutic art and art therapy share some similarities, but they also have distinct differences in their approaches, goals, and professional standards.

Art Therapy:

  1. Professional Training: Art therapy is a regulated mental health profession that requires practitioners to have specific educational and clinical training. Art therapists typically hold a master’s degree in art therapy or a related field and adhere to ethical standards and licensing requirements.

  2. Clinical Focus: Art therapy is primarily focused on psychological and emotional healing. It involves using art-making processes and creative expression as a therapeutic intervention to address mental health issues, trauma, and emotional challenges.

  3. Therapeutic Relationship: Art therapists establish a therapeutic relationship with clients and use art as a medium for self-expression, reflection, and exploration. The emphasis is on the therapeutic process and the client’s emotional experience.

Coaching with Therapeutic Art:

  1. Coaching Framework: Coaching with therapeutic art is often rooted in a coaching framework rather than a clinical therapy model. I have  foundational  training and experience in Jungian art therapy and holistic life coaching, tarot coaching and other related fields, however I  use art as a tool within a coaching context.

  2. Focus on Goal Setting and Action: The primary focus of coaching with therapeutic art is often on goal setting, personal development, and facilitating positive change. It integrates art as a means to enhance self-awareness, creativity, and insight, with an emphasis on helping clients move forward and achieve their objectives.

  3. No Clinical Diagnosis or Treatment: Unlike art therapy, coaching with therapeutic art does not involve clinical diagnosis or treatment of mental health disorders. Instead, it is more about personal growth, empowerment, and supporting clients in achieving their aspirations.

.  All creative activities in my coaching programs are low-threshold exercises that can have therapeutic effects, and can provide deep insights that lead to better self-knowledge, stress reduction and potential shifts in consciousness.

However, it is not  meant to take the place of a licensed art therapist. If there are specific mental health concerns, consulting with a licensed art therapist or mental health professional may be appropriate.

Absolutely not! The creative exercises are for everyone to enjoy and explore themselves through. Everything will be explained step-by-step so that you will feel comfortable. The most important part is the process of creating, not the end result. Is it after all not an art session but a soul work session using mostly collage as a tool to access you inner world.

You certainly do not have to know how to read tarot as we will approach the cards as a psycho-spritual tool for intuitive self-discovery and not for divination. If you sign up for the program you get a complimentary copy of my ‘inner Journey’ tarot deck, a 22-card major arcana only deck which we will use in the program. It comes with a free pdf-guidebook to familiarise yourself with the cards.

It is not possible to sign up for individual sessions as this program is designed to be a 6-month coaching journey where one module builds on the next. This also ensures a consistent experience and growth process for everyone in the group.

The 6-month package has to be paid in full upon registration or in 4 equal payments.

If you have to miss a session you will have access to the replay and all handouts.

You will have access to the 6 recorded sessions until 3 months after the program has ended.

You will have access to a private Facebook group where I will also engage and answer your questions.
