“Creative thinking inspires ideas, ideas inspire change”

CREATE RETREAT will help you to take the first steps towards the life you really want, including establishing what exactly this is for you! Working with experts in their field with over 20 years combined experience in Art therapy, life and business coaching, you are in safe hands. Deirdre and Tina are both passionate and knowledgeable about what they do and in practical terms have implemented the strategies they teach to create a life of joy, freedom and endless possibilities. This was not always the case and like some of you we can fully relate to a time when life felt hard, without purpose, where stress and fear controlled both the body and mind. We found a way to change, a new perspective, a different way and that is why we are beyond excited to share this with you!

We will provide you with a space where you can use creative art workshops to focus and dedicate time just to you, to explore what it is you really desire. The self-reflection workshops incorporate intention setting, contemplation questions in all the key areas of your life, and challenge beliefs and mindsets that are preventing you from moving forward. The daily sessions will provide integration and clarity as well as practical tools that can be implemented into your everyday life so that you can have a strategy for making your desired changes.

The movement within the program which includes morning yoga, stretches, walks, meditation practices, and dance parties throughout, allows you to ground yourself, move stagnant energy, raise your vibration and feel more into your body, which is so important after accessing your emotions using intuitive creativity. Our combined approach will stretch your imagination, make space in your mind for the new and integrate you back into your body.

You will be excited to join us if:

  • You are reading this and you are thinking yes this is me and it’s my time
  • You are ready to explore your potential and make changes
  • You are ready to prioritise you and invest in bringing joy and balance into your life
  • You are open to new perspectives and aligning your beliefs to your desires

CREATE RETREAT Ireland will be an intimate setting for a small select group. It will be the only program of its kind that we carry out in 2016.

*Not sure if this retreat is something for you why not book a book a free discovery call to find out if this is for you.

My question to you is what will the cost be to you if you don’t change your current situation. Are you ready and excited to invite change into your life and step into a richer, more balanced, fulfilled version of you?

 About Deirdre and Tina

Firstly, we are old friends who met on the island of Cyprus over 15 years ago. Our connection was immediate and many a day and night was spent (usually over a glass of wine or 2) discussing and visualizing our dream lives, creating the vision first in our minds long before stepping into the reality. Our journey of personal development, expanding into deeper self-love and demanding more from life has kept our paths strongly connected which is why we are so excited to collaborate and share this unique experience with you

Hi, I’m Deirdre, the founder of Art Jam Ireland. I have been involved in the art world for more than 30 years and have created a business around what I am truly passionate about, firstly as an artist and then as an art workshop facilitator and have recently opened an Art Gallery in Dublin city centre.  With Art Jam I facilitate workshops with both private groups and corporate clients which include Facebook, Google, IMB, Deloitte, Sports Councils, Dropbox, staff workshops at schools & universities to name a few.  My Workshops are designed to bring out the best in you, to find blocks and what is holding you back, to facilitate opening you up to new ideas and possibilities.  I have seen first-hand the power of Art workshops and the benefits it brings to your confidence and life. I grew up in Kenya and spend most of my 20’s and 30’s travelling and living all over the world and now live in Dublin with my partner and daughter. My knowledge of the local area will ensure that you experience all that Ireland has to offer.


Hi, Im Tina. I grew up in an environment that moved country, school and friends every 2 years, I became an expert at “fitting in” a chameleon that adapted to each environment. It wasn’t until I reached my 40’s that I realized I didn’t actually know who I was, what I wanted or what I even liked. I had spent my whole life being a people pleaser that I had lost sight of me. Of course my inner being knew better and proceeded to bombard me with contrast until I broke! This was the point where everything changed… I changed. Finally I started to acknowledge me, my desires, my thoughts and my dreams. With over 20 years in business experience I changed direction into life coaching and energy work. I sold my property and everything I owned to allow myself a more freedom based lifestyle. I now travel the world, coaching clients internationally and running masterminds and retreat style workshops. I found my purpose and my joy and I want nothing more than to help others do the same.


Client Love
What Tina teaches isn’t textbook, it’s not counselling, it’s deeper than that. You learn about yourself and how fantastic you already are. You learn to love the insignificant by learning that’s the most significant! Tina taught me to love myself and in turn, receive love

I am powerful, I am strong and most of all I am. That’s it. I am. I can make who I am whatever I want to be, I just need to think it, believe it and then live it.

12 months ago i was unhappy. Correction, I thought I was unhappy. I actually wasn’t I just didn’t feel like I was on track. I had lost the belief in myself. Now. Almost a year later, i have a new home, a new job, a fantastic relationship with my husband, a good (ever working) relationship with money and my guilt is going. It is not gone. I have good days and I have down days. Thing is now, I embrace the down days as they allow me time to reflect, to rebalance and refocus. If there is resistance, I know now that I have the power to change it.

Thanks to Tina I have found my inner strength again and I am back in the game. Loving it.
Amber, Regional Director

I hadn’t really considered coaching, but after I had my initial session I was really impressed and decided to give it a go. I have always had a problem goal setting, but the coaching didn’t push me into that, but just made me think more clearly about what I wanted, things that I always thought I wanted turned out not to be the case really!
I think it helps produce clarity as Tina was there to question my decisions, well more like make me question them, and you find out a lot like that.
It has made me more organised in work and I have made more profit since seeing Tina so I think it was worth the investment
I would recommend Tina as a life coach or business coach, she has a lovely manner and could really improve your life or your business.

Bowen Therapist and UK Instructor

Tina’s calmness, warmth and professionalism make her very easy to talk to, she has a very unintimidating presence that is very reassuring.
I have surprised myself with what our sessions brought to the surface. I think that’s largely down to feeling very comfortable with her compassionate ear and gentle but directional prompts. I really enjoyed the instant feeling of having “shared” after our session, but moreover some months later, I can see how the results of our time have translated into very real and practical steps both in my personal and professional life. A very tangible and positive difference. Thank you Tina!
I would wholly and heartily recommend Tina to anyone without hesitation.
Sarah, Titfers (Business owner)

“Coaching isn’t something I had previously considered but I knew that if I wanted different, I would have to do different. Coaching with Tina had an immediate impact and I was really surprised at how my mindset changed after just 1 session. Since then I have implemented many changes to my business and my life (‘me time’ being one of them!! something I was lacking). The experience has brought me more balance and awareness of the importance of prioritizing myself, and not last in line after children, husband and business. I would definitely recommend Tina as a coach, worth every penny.”
