My clients are the best part of the work that I do! Here are just a few of the kind words my individual coaching clients have shared after working with me. 

"No matter where you are in your career in the arts sector, Chris can help you refine your personal brand, and create an action plan that is unique to you and your needs. Chris is a great listener: she asked about my career goals, my strengths, and my personality, and used these as the foundation for my personalized coaching. I mentioned in an early session that I'm a strategic planning nerd, and sure enough, she had me create a strategic plan for my career. I loved it! The result is that I feel well-equipped to take advantage of professional opportunities as they arise, and to use my strengths to lead with confidence."   Barbara 
“I started working with Chris at a time when I was experiencing insecurity around the trajectory of my artistic career. During a few months of coaching, meeting every other week, I have made some major moves. My new path is set in a direction I feel very confident with. Chris asks the right questions leading me to focus and prioritize. She is a phenomenal listener and her keen observations have helped me look at problems in different ways encouraging me to activate solid decisions. I am a better artist today because of the coaching I received from Chris.”  Irene
“Chris' coaching helped me develop and redesign my art practice. More importantly, I was able to turn inward to understand my own values, and strengths. As a result I feel a permanent shift in my outlook and perspective. This shift has allowed me to become confident and purposeful, and has empowered me to take control of my career as an artist. I feel now self-guided in a direction that is fulfilling, honest, and in line with my values. Chris is an amazing coach and the results are absolutely invaluable."   Justine
“I worked with Chris Mitchell for the last year and found her help and guidance exceptional. She helped me hone in on things I wanted to change about my work environment and how to re structure not only the format of my workplace but how to re think and adjust my perception of it so that I could embrace what was happening with a more positive mindset. She also helped me clarify my goals as an artist and own my potential and expertise in that field and own my accomplishments. I would highly recommend working with Chris for Business or Artistic aspirations to set clear goals and have an incredibly positive and insightful guide by your side."   Sarah
“Chris Mitchell brings a winning blend of listening, compassion, insightful questions and imaginative strategies to her  coaching practice.
Working with her, I have been able to develop new perspectives and map out practical goals as I embark on new creative ventures."   Mark
“I thoroughly enjoyed working with Chris and left with a more focused direction, a sense of "I can make this happen" and a plan to do so. Chris's extensive background working with artists/creatives in a variety of disciplines gives her a greater understanding of our practice(s). I find her kind and patient (with a great sense of humor) , and great at motivating me to look inwards and move forwards. A great investment in you! "    Sheri
“Working with Chris Mitchell has been a very empowering experience. Holding my long-range aspirations in mind, she has helped shape immediate goals into a series of sharp and focused tasks and bolstered my performance by gently pushing me to reach just beyond where I might have stopped otherwise. Chris is an incredibly attuned listener who brings powerful support in a gentle and humble way. I am very fortunate to have her in my corner.”   James
“Chris' coaching was invaluable at a time for me when I had totally lost touch with my creative pursuits. With her help, I not only reinvigorated my love and passion for creating music, but also was able to overcome the anxiety I carried from feeling out of touch with my craft. For me, her coaching carried affirmation, encouragement, and support and I always felt at my best after a call with her. She will help you self-actualize the solutions to your problems, but also help you realize you had the ability all along.  Emma 
“I am deeply thankful for the productive time I have shared with Chris. Her compassionate and insightful methods helped me to galvanize, clarify, understand, and implement meaningful growth in my art practice. Moreover, her guidance in deeply connecting these actions to my personal values and aspirations has revolutionized my approach to teaching and I am newly able to imbue this excitement and deep connection in my pedagogy."  Donna Szoke
“I found Chris at a time in my life when I was really struggling to see a clear path forward for myself-- I'd been acting for over twenty years, had jumped from job to job to make ends meet during that time, and was tired of the lack of consistency in my life. But, I also couldn't see a way for me to get that stability without either giving up on my art, or completely compromising in my day job. Chris really helped me to gain clarity on all the skills and tools I'd been building and using as an artist all these years, and helped me figure out how I could apply them to my professional career, and even to my life at large. For the first time I was able to see a way forward into stability that didn't have to crush my creativity, or require me to give up on being an artist-- instead, Chris helped me to use my experience and knowledge to find or build something that would allow me to have both, and honour all the time I'd put into honing these skills all my life. If you are an artist looking to find new and creative ways to apply your skills to new ventures, want help overcoming imposter syndrome, or are simply looking for great advice and a roadmap on how to be a better business person as an artist, don't hesitate to talk to Chris! "  Katie
"Working with Chris has been one of the best decisions I have taken. I knew where I wanted to go with my art career but was not sure of how to get there and was having some mindset issues that kept me from moving forward. During my six-session package Chris and I worked over my strengths, values, time management, how to seek opportunities, and mindset. What I love the most about Chris as a coach is most of the time I would show up with many things on my mind but not a clear statement of what exactly I needed coaching on that session, however, Chris would always listen to me and read between the lines and show me exactly what I was looking for and help me reframe things, and understand what actions I needed to take. After my package ended, I have a clear sense of what I want, what I need to do to achieve it, how to analyze my progress and actions, and which strengths I have to make things happen. I look forward to working more with Chris in the future but recommend to anyone seeking a coach to have a discovery session with her as I did." Maria S. Llamozas
