Coaching for Artists


I, Jacinta Noonan, am the Mental Coach for Artists.

I work with Artists to discover their inner resources to enhance success and to unblock the barriers keeping them from sustained excellence. I believe that having direct access to your ‘inner creative’ enables Artists to bypass the inner critic to ensure magical performances at all times.

I am here to provide you with the most supportive and productive coaching relationship possible and I am flexible in the structure that your coaching can take – it is up to you. Coaching can take place face-to-face or by telephone. I am available for you from anywhere in the world. Please find below my most popular coaching packages to choose from.

Your Coach

My base is Haarlem, the Netherlands, however I am available world wide. I have extensive international experience and understand the emotional highs and lows of performing. I am an NLP Master Practitioner and Coach, and have degrees in psychology and training. I am a member of the ICF (International Coaching Federation) and follow their code of ethics for quality and confidentiality.
