Note: John Friel was not able to join me and has re-sent the interview: Discover The Power and Grace Between Nasty and Nice with Scott Cluthe when he talks with John Friel, Ph.D., live Thursday July 26th at 7 PM CST.

I present in that show's place, a valuable conversation with one of the world's top Creativity Coaches, Dr. Eric Maisel.

Eric Maisel is an author, family therapist and cultural observer and is widely regarded as America’s foremost creativity coach.

Eric’s new book is titled: MASTERING CREATIVE ANXIETY-24 Lessons for Writers, Painters, Musicians, and Actors.In his decades as a psychotherapist and creativity coach, Eric Maisel has found a common thread behind what often gets labeled “writer’s block,” “procrastination,” or “stage fright.” It’s the particular anxiety that, paradoxically, keeps creators from doing, completing, or sharing the work they are driven toward.

This “creative anxiety” can take the form of avoiding the work, declaring it not good enough, or failing to market it — and it can cripple creators for decades, even lifetimes. But Maisel has learned what sets successful creators apart. 

Implementing these 24 lessons replaces the pain of not creating with the profound rewards of free artistic self-expression. 

Dr. Maisel trains creativity coaches and meaning coaches, provides core trainings for the Creativity Coaching Association, and works with individual clients on issues of creativity and meaning. Dr. Maisel holds degrees in philosophy (B.S.), psychology (B.A.), creative writing (M.A.), counseling (M.S.), and counseling psychology (PhD).
