Are you creative? Are your clients? Would you like to be more so? Then you’ve come to the right place!

In this lively session Jen Gash, life-long artist, occupational therapist and specialist coach, will share some personal and professional insights into the complex world of creativity.

This will involve de-bunking some myths, sharing new insights from research and examining her own stories around what it means to be creative.  Jen looks at creativity from many angles:  her life-long struggle with her own creativity as a painter, writer and her professional “work”; her fascination with creativity as part of transformational activities such as coaching and therapy; its relationship to mental wellbeing.

You’ll be able to examine your own creative desires and pursuits, gain fresh insights and new perspectives and shift some old patterns.

About Jen

Jen Gash has been working in the world of therapy and coaching for over 20 years.  She chose to pursue a “real job” rather than become a painter and has been wrestling with those choices ever since. She also brings with her, first-hand knowledge of the relationship between mental wellbeing and creativity. She is highly regarded in her profession and has had two books published recently, “Coaching Creativity: transforming your practice” published by Routledge. “Enabling Positive Change: coaching conversations in occupational therapy” published by CAOT.


“Jen Gash is passionate about her subject and she does not take long to engage her audience with her wit and eloquence.   There is something creative inside all of us just waiting to be discovered; her message both practical and lifts the spirit.”

Peter Watson, Section Head.  Art in Action
