Do you wonder what it would feel like to be in love with words and the process of writing?
Story, poetry, lyrics all resting in anticipation of the flow. All too often self-doubt confirmed by external criticism is ingested like tainted ice forcing these pulsing words nestled in our cells to go dormant under the winter of our insecurity and ambivalence. Working with a Gateless Writing Coach will help ignite or rekindle your love of writing and creativity.
What is the Gateless Writing method?
Gateless Writing and Coaching, founded by Suzanne Kingsbury, is based on well-researched brain science which shows that, just like trauma, criticism triggers the innate fight/flight/freeze responses hardwired into our brain structures. In the Gateless atmosphere, we look at the critical voice which speaks from these reptilian, safety-at-all-costs brain structures. We explore how it is inhibiting your writing, your creativity, your life in general with its mandate of black and white, all or nothing, perfection or destruction. By removing criticism from the creative process, we can point to and uplift what is good, powerful, and strong which helps release inhibitions and allow true self-expression and creative genius to arrive.

Why did I choose to become a certified Gateless Teacher & Coach?
Along with the love of words and coaching, the foundation of brain science and ancient spiritual practices steeped in non-duality blends seamlessly with what I offer as a Somatic Therapist and Clinical Counsellor. The Gateless approach is something I live every day; which is to say, I am an encourager and a person who seeks to live as much as possible in a place of non-duality and in alignment with my True Self.
What do I most love about Gateless Coaching?
Connecting with writers in those cramped, dingy, doubt-riddled spaces is where I shine. Banishing the long shadows cast by the inner critic, slaying skeptical dragons, diminishing the demons of dread—my sweet spot is lighting up your dungeon of apprehension and anxiety.
How will Gateless Coaching help navigate the vulnerability, fear, and overwhelm of writing?
You will be given craft tools, support, a safe container to explore the critical voice, and maps to help you soul spelunk your way back into alignment with your highest Self, your creative genius--who, by the way, is eager for you to take your hands off your eyes and see the affluent stream of words, stories, and ideas flowing all around you.
What does it look like to work with a Gateless Writing Coach?
The world is becoming more tightly knit with each passing day. Each of my coaching clients is unique. We work in person in small salons or one on one. We work at a distance, connected via Skype or FaceTime. Through email, we share documents and words of encouragement and support. The sky is the limit and you get to decide what feels most supportive for you and your work. Whether you are just feeling the nudge of a seedling idea or you have a completed piece, we can walk through your words together and find ways to lift it to the level of genius that is inherent in your DNA.
This could be the start of letting your oak tree out of the acorn.
