Inspired by the brave steps and amazing progress of her coaching clients, Isobel decided it was time try a dose of her own coaching medicine!
She followed the Flying Club Process that had worked so well for others, slaying fears, discarding excess baggage and daring to dream …

The result – Isobel is currently studying MA Performance Art at the prestigious Royal College of Art, London.

Isobel Smith started The Flying Club after her creative life completely turned around while she was following The Artists Way (self development manual). She is passionate about encouraging others to follow their dreams too.
She gave up her Graphic Design career of 15 years and began her vocation as a puppeteer – not a path she had even considered before!

Amazed that a series of simple exercises could lead to such profound life changes, she began to research further, investigating all the books, manuals and guides she could lay her hands on and quickly recognized that they are all underpinned by similar coaching techniques and it is the way the tools are combined and framed that makes the process a success, or not.
Many were just too long and others too slight. She attended Erica Sosna’s excellent ‘Coaching Skills’ training course at The Life Project, Brighton and felt empowered to begin devising her own process – The Flying Club Creative Coaching was the result.

She has simplified, refined and adapted her courses over the years to concentrate on encouraging self-acceptance and delight in the journey, rather than the traditional coaching focus on results alone. The warm, nurturing and highly effective techniques used in The Flying Club Process back, champion and ra-ra each of our own uniquely fabulous ways of being.
