LIBBY BROOKES (SHE/HER)
Lives & works in Cornwall, UK
I honed my skills as an artist for six years in formal education, waving goodbye with an MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art. My technical acumen led me to a role as a 3D tutor and demonstrator at the University of Brighton before I landed in the aerospace industry. My interest in business piqued, so I earned an MBA and worked my way up the corporate ladder in high-tech sectors of aerospace, space, security, and communications.
In 2009, I realised that this path no longer aligned with my values. With excitement and some nervousness, I began coach training. After receiving my certification in 2014, I became a solopreneur, helping corporations, entrepreneurs, and public bodies through coaching, training, and consulting.
In 2017, I uprooted and moved to a 4-acre smallholding in rural Cornwall where I devoted myself to my sculpture practice, while continuing to deliver coaching. I dug into understanding the new landscape of the art world and the strategies for success within it. With this knowledge and through my philosophical study, I hold an entirely new perspective on myself and the world.
I’ve found true flow, and want to empower you to do the same.
“I steward you through evolving into your highest expression, and help you give your greatest contribution to the world. This is a true hero’s journey”
LIBBY’S 3 TIPS FOR ARTISTS
1. DO THE WORK!
A successful art practice can only flow from strong, consistent work.
2. FOCUS ON ‘BEING’ BEFORE ‘DOING’
Know who you really are before looking at what you want to do.
3. BE GENTLE
When you look in the mirror you should find your best friend – so be gentle with yourself.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
LIBBY’S COACHING EXPERIENCE
Since 2009, I have been dedicated to my coach training journey. I achieved my International Coaching Federation (ICF) credential and became a Director on their UK Board in 2014. Over 15 years, I have completed thousands of hours of coach training and delivery, and am committed to continuous development, as this craft is one that is always evolving. Just last year I completed Advanced Creativity Coach Training.
My clients often seek me out when they are struggling with one of two challenges: either they lack clarity and need more options, or they know what to do but are unable to take action due to something holding them back. These challenges offer the greatest potential for transformative coaching, where I work with you to uncover your true self.
