With OTOA & Creative Life Practice Founder, Master Teacher & Coach, Gia Forakis

You do not need to be an artist to benefit from Creative Life Practice Private Coaching

OTOA Creative Life Practice (CLP) Coaching offers exceptional and practical benefits for Creative Thinkers in Every Field & Any Discipline.

As an OTOA CLP Coach I am able to assist you in envisioning and creating change in your professional, personal or creative life, and to address it cohesively and comprehensively using the well established principles of One-Thought-One-Action (OTOA)™ and the tools of Creative Life Practice (CLP)™.

OTOA CLP Coaching allows me to support my clients in addressing their concerns and goals, while introducing an approach for forging a clear path through challenges, untangling obstacles, and reinvigorating a sense of purpose, possibility and abundance.

OTOA CLP Coaching is for both artists and non-artists alike. OTOA CLP Coaching offers care, context, support, and encouragement for a more unified sense of self. I am not a therapist. I am teacher. I am your advocate. I am the coach in your corner.

~Gia Forakis,

OTOA & CLP Founder, Master Teacher & Coach
