All Creativity, Education, Holistic Wellness, Intuition, Life Coaching

Business Name:

Susan Cleaver


Douglassville, Pennsylvania. United States






Web Site:



I have a holistic philosophy about creativity. I believe that it is not so much about having talent as it is about managing talent holistically. (Just ask any actor who is currently in rehab!) Our creativity is affected by all of the areas listed here and more:


  • culture

  • stereotypes

  • emotions

  • intuition

  • self-care

  • spirituality

  • limiting beliefs

  • values

  • experiences

  • environment

  • self-esteem

  • confidence


Methods of Working:

Phone coaching with email support, all email, or in person with email support (in order of preference).


I help and encourage all types of creatives to build strong holistic frameworks to support their creativity. We look at the business side from a holistic perspective too, when the client is interested in selling her work.

I graduated from the Couch U Coach Training Program, and I have a B.S. degree in Education. I’m also a certified Reiki Master-Teacher. I’ve attended weekend workshops at Omega Institute on creativity and intuition with Julia Cameron and Belleruth Naparstek, respectively.

Individual Services:

I offer teleclasses called I. During these classes, we call in every hour to report our progress and declare our intentions for the next hour while working on our creative projects. It keeps us focused, and its fun!
