What is Creative Depth Coaching?

Many RiversCreative Depth Coaching is a hybrid form of coaching that combines traditional and narrative coaching with healing modalities, transformative art and depth process to engage wisdom, self-discovery and healing. Deep thinkers, healers and seekers often yearn for this type of inner exploration to fuel their purpose and passion.

For the Creative Depth Coach, the integration of Jungian-based depth work, psychosynthesis, expressive arts, narrative process and strengths based personal growth, offers a non-pathologizing approach to deep healing and aligned wholeness. This fresh and dynamic perspective invites the client to explore their own material of life, engaging discovery, building on restorative healing and developmental practice.

A message from the founder

I recognize and work with the paradoxes, complexities and shadow material of my own life. I explore my life stories and unravel experiences through the multifaceted lens of the psyche and the inner landscape. Incorporating intuitive creativity, symbolic language and coaching tools, I design unique and dynamic process that inspires wellness, wholeness and choice. Designing life with conscious attention and creative inspiration is always a personal, dynamic and an ever-changing journey. This translates into my work with thousands of individuals who change their lives through Depth Coaching, Mythos Journey, attending International Goddess Retreats, as well as the individualized and customized mentoring offered at >>> Cat Caracelo.

I develop discovery processes that are both healing and enriching. My work is designed to meet the needs of unique, creative and dynamic individuals, like you, who are working to enhance real life by recognizing their emerging strengths, engaging healing, navigating transition and developing conscious life-design.
