Powerful Spaces to Re-See, Re-Discover & Re-Create
Human beings have an innately creative core which keeps us vital and alive, adaptable and thriving.
Today we are being asked to really embrace that creative core on a much deeper and more practical level so we are able to continue to evolve with the huge shifts going on in and around us. Rather than wilfully push against events or new realities in life we need to acknowledge what is and relate to it differently. If we can find ways do this, we can shift the dynamics which created it in the first place thereby changing our own capacity to change it.
Globally life is asking all of us to learn new ways of being and showing up in the world. We must now evolve a more adaptive, flexible and creative approach daily, even in the most difficult of situations no matter what is going on inside or out.
We are beginning to understand that the most personal is also the most systemic or in other words that everything is connected. This means that by shifting yourself you shift the whole, the collective, whether inside or outside of you.
In our work we are at constant play with change, everything is flexible, changeable and fluid. We work in the liminal space between things where great creativity lies. It has often been described as unpredictable and unexpected, and even seems magical at times.
But it isn’t. It is simply a way of working and living which brings to life your innate capacities to listen deeper and wider, and to sharpen your intuitive powers.
This is how you bring your own creativity to life.
Our creative coaching conversational approach support you understand and access your own creative abilities whether you thought you had them or not.
We combine a narrative and visual approach in our mentoring, coaching and training. It is through this playful, creative approach what we see the deepest shifts occur in our clients.

Realising what is at the centre of the pattern will revolutionise and radically innovate our reality for the better. And it is so simple! It is essence and when we partner WITH it we open up the field for innate potential to flow through us.
We want to revolutionise the way we come together and the conversations we have and take them into a whole new dimension.
We don’t have the answers to your “problems”, you do! Our gift is that we SEE and HEAR your brilliance and help you see it too!
The spaces we create go beyond the traditional paradigms of conversation, of competition, of win (and therefore) lose. Our work enables deeper, more insightful generative conversation to occur within your collective. It taps into a (much) wider field of creativity, innovation and also healing and individual and collective awareness shifts.
We invite you into your own creative zone where fixed ideas become fluid, your way forward unscripted.That’s when your creative, adaptive systems come to life and deep change begins.
Since 2004, we have evolved uniquely creative resources for discovering and working with your potential which is innately creative.
Our facilitation style uses Generative Scribing and Visual Presencing. We listen deeply and draw in real time as the group is facilitated. You (literally) see yourself and your story unfolding and then we work with the potential which is unfolding.
We work in companies on long and short-term creative potential development projects and provide creative tools to maintain and support progress and development.
Since 2012 We have worked with The Vatican (Religions & the UN SDGs) Initiatives of Change, Teach for America, SingularityU, BBC, Oracle, TEDx, Shell, Aegon, Aramco Overseas Company, Repsol (Spain), Mundipharma.

I am here to bring your creative soul to life whether individually or in a group or an organisation. All my work focusses on the practice of using your innate sensitive super powers in a world that has always needed them.
My visual working approach boosts and anchors the coaching or facilitation process. It brings you into yourself as a creative space and the resonance amplifies. It’s colourful, playful and profound.
I’m Vanessa Jane Smith, from New Zealand with a background in communications, organisational development, training, and coaching. I’ve lived and worked in Mexico, Spain and the Netherlands over the last 25 years. I focus my attentions on bringing a new way of communicating into the personal field (during coaching) as well as into the organisational field of culture development. I have developed a collection of creative tools to support that development with groups and individuals.
But here’s the point of it all.
The change can only start, continue and end with us, with the creative human being at the heart of any organisation or entity.
This change is powerfully harnessed when we really utilise our uniquely human creative capacities to open up and to listen deeper and wider, to courageously step outside of our comfort zones and allow ourselves to break our own rules and play and be curious and doubt and not know always about outcomes. This is where true innovation begins.
And this is happening! I’m working globally with individuals and organisations who are now opening up and bravely recognising and working with the much greater potential of their deeply human vulnerabilities and sensing capacities.
This is such a powerful process that allows the participants to “see” what they have “heard” and thus not only adds another dimension for the comprehension of what has been shared but also deepens the exploration for creative change”
…The four walls of the conference centre were changed by Vanessa’s work; we no longer sat in a generic space but occupied a room specific to us, designed for and by us, a chronicle of our unique wisdom. The art transformed us. We were 35 people from 11 countries made one through our intention and the circle that the art invoked.”
