Creativity counselling



“Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things” – Ray Bradbury

“Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird; that’s easy. What’s hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity” – Charles Mingus

“You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club” – Jack London

Creativity is that elusive, addictive, consuming, intoxication force that takes you deep within to wrestle with an idea, to battle with a concept, and to butt heads with an image made of mist.

We thrive on creativity. Some have no choice but to live on creativity. Or at least try to make a living from it.

Yet, the ideas dry up. Inspiration disappears. We doubt. We see ourselves as frauds.

Rest assured however, that this is just a season.
