The first book dedicated to coaching with collage
As the first book dedicated to coaching with collage, I introduce you to the Collage Coaching Technique™. This three-stage creative process unlocks unconscious thinking, enabling profound psychological insight through deeper and faster exploration of emotions and behaviours.
As a comprehensive resource, I share in-depth information and research including coaching with the unconscious mind, meaning-making through symbolic images and visual metaphors, embodied cognition, the neuroscience of creativity, and the role of storytelling.
Case studies, client reflections, and my personal experiences feature throughout, illustrating and enriching the theory. The book aims to instil creative confidence in coaches, so you feel equipped to use this transformative technique in your practice. As such, it is inspirational and essential reading for anyone starting, reviewing, or deepening their creative coaching journey.
It’s available to purchase from Routledge.com, Barnes & Noble, Amazon and many other online retailers, as well as selected high street book shops.

What Reviewers are Saying
This book is an informative, well researched and evidence-based resource for coaches wishing to incorporate the power of collage into their approach. Having seen and experienced it in action, Andrea Watts innovative, considered and thorough approach is second to none. It speaks to Andrea’s generosity that she has been willing to demystify and codify the process for all within the pages of this great read. This book, its approach and wisdom will help to transform your approach with working with clients, helping you and they to reach full potential.
CCT offers coaches a new approach for fostering creativity within coaching sessions. Drawing on art therapy and the potential to explore both the conscious and unconscious representations we hold as individuals, the technique can be a powerful addition to unleashing the creative potential within clients through collage, story and wider art-based methods
For me, the best thing about the way this book is written is that although it is not designed to be a guide as to how to integrate collage into coaching, in explaining the process and underlying science, Andréa also shares so much of her own expertise and client’s experiences with the CCT, that you get a real feel for how this would work in your own coaching practice. A must read for coaches looking to engage in more creative techniques.
