Visualise the future you want and map out the plan to make it happen.
"If you want to reach a goal you must 'see the reaching'
before you actually arrive at your goal." – Zig Ziglar
 2023: Is this the year for new beginnings?

Is this the year all the things we've put on hold for the last two years can finally come into being?

Perhaps. All we know for sure is that there is no 'going back', only moving forward.
The gift these past two years has given us is the gift of re-evaluation.

It's almost impossible not to reflect on what is truly important in life, who you want to be and how you
want to show up in the world.

Does any of the following resonate with you?
  • No space or time to think about you: You're busy focusing on your clients, your family, everyone else. You feel the urge to stop and reflect but you can't find the time and space to do so.
  • Too many goals and too many options: With so many ways of living and working now open to you, how can you possibly choose the right path.
  • Lack of focus: Despite best efforts, distractability is high on the agenda.
  • Creativity slump: It can be difficult to tap into your creativity when energy is low and to-do lists are large!
Some of the things I have been reminded of
over the course of the last few years have been:
The Importance Of Simplicity
The Gift That Is Focus
The Art Of Resourcefulness
However, far and away my biggest lesson has been:
How much better we feel when we have something to look forward to, something to work towards, something we have control over.
Hi! I'm Emer,
Hand drawn visuals are at the heart of everything I do.

Before retraining as a visual practitioner in 2014 I completed my NLP Practitioner training in 2006 and also qualified as a Person Centred Planning facilitator in 2007. My professional development areas include positive pyschology, coaching and visual thinking.

This year I decided to realise my dream of designing a visual planning system that would nurture me (I find a lot of systems are about the plan and tend to neglect the person) tap into my creativity, and help me to feel confident and excited about my future.

That's what motivated me to create this new programme. I needed to create a visual planning system for my own life, and then share it with others.
Words from people who have drawn out their future...

I feel like the course has given me permission to spend more time on the things that give me pleasure and energy in and out of work in a way that no other coaching or course I've done before has ever achieved.

I have made little changes to my daily routine which feel like big changes to my life. I have a clear picture of the future I want and it feels realistic. I have the tools I need to keep focusing on different elements of my plan and when I feel I'm getting off track or have achieved them – I can re-draw the picture!

I was drawn to the programme to try a different way of setting myself new year's resolutions, which I rarely stick to. I wondered if this process might help me to come up with more impactful personal targets that I might actually commit to... and it absolutely did that and more!
I loved the way the programme flowed, and the visual images and imagery that Emer used both in the exercises we did and in her language. It really helped me to explore new ideas and options that I don't believe would have come to the surface otherwise.
I would absolutely recommend this programme. Without feeling overly dramatic or too intense, it was a highly impactful programme and it's still resonating with me weeks after we finished.

Coaching with Emer is transformational. She is highly intuitive and skilled at identifying priorities and gentling holding you in that space to generate tangible actions that make you feel positive, in control and excited.
I loved how she identified where there was lightness and heaviness and supported me in identifying positive beliefs. I found that very powerful. I also loved the creative side as I am a very visual person. I really like how boundaried Emer is – I think we connect well but we also get a lot done together. She is very focused, intuitive and cuts through any bullshit.

Key Features
Get 12 months access to the programme modules.
No drawing experience? No problem. Get access to a 20 minute 'How to Draw' video, plus a Visual Thinking resource list.
*Please note, this is not a drawing course as such. I have designed the programme to be accessible to both keen visual thinkers and people who have never drawn since childhood.
Module 1: You
*Start Strong*
To influence our future we first connect with strong and stable foundations to develop an optimum mindset for visioning. We will look at:
  • Where you get your energy and how you maintain a positive mindset
  • What you need to let go of in order to propel yourself forward
  • How to draw strength from previous successes
  • Your North Star – the values that set your direction of travel
Module 2: Your World and Your Vision 
                                            *Expand your thinking*                                                                                                                         
Your world is unique to you. It is not always something that can be easily categorised. There are often layers of overlap and areas which call our attention at different times. In this session we acknowledge and make peace with the complexity of our worlds as we explore:
  • What your world looks like to you
  •  Beginning the visioning process – Creative visioning exercises to take you from where you are now to where you never imagined before!
Module 3: From Vision to Reality
                                     *Design Gut Goals*
In this session we continue to tap into our creativity and explore the vision of our future. We also start to look at how to bring focus and clarity to our vision.
  • Alignment, excitement, confidence and clarity – goals with a visual edge
  •  How to harness the power of the imagination to influence practical outcomes
  • The power of intuition when bringing focus to your vision
  • Promises and pitfalls of goal setting – what to ignore and what to embrace
Module 4: Live Your Vision Today
                                               *Cultivate interstellar habits*
You don't have to wait until the future to live your vision today. You don't even have to wait until you've achieved your goals. Let's explore ways to live and breathe your vision right now!
  • How to take core elements of your vision and weave them into your daily life
  • The power of visual habit creation and tracking
Module 5: From Vision to Reality II
                                                   *Create visual action plans*
In this session we gain greater clarity on your areas of focus and transform them into reality through the aid of a visual action plan. This is where right brain creativity meets left brain logic and process.
  • A concrete process for transforming your visual goals into reality with tangible steps and creative methods for monitoring progress.
  • Watch your visual roadmap emerge before you.
Module 6: The Future and Beyond
                                        *Future pace*
In this session we bring all the visual templates we have been working on together to form a cohesive whole.
  • Discover what emerges when you see your future as whole; tweak and amend visual action plans accordingly.
  • Share processes for keeping your vision alive.
  • We also explore obstructions and blind spots. A creative process for acknowledging, making peace with and moving on from the inevitable barriers that come in our way as we move from ideas to implementation.
This is a holistic programme, looking at the whole person. You will be invited to focus on three key areas of your choosing to work on with techniques for addressing additional areas as we work through the programme.
The programme is very much present and future focused. We don't spend a great deal of time looking into the past.
More Words from DOYF Fans...

Emer's infectious enthusiasm leaves me feeling inspired every time I do one of her courses. I recently attended her Draw out Your Future course. It was a fabulous six weeks.

I learned a lot, got to play about with drawings, and be supported and encouraged by an amazing group of like-minded individuals. Goals I never knew I had appeared from the sea of infinite possibilities! I did her Secrets of Simple Graphics course a couple of years ago and it changed the way I write, teach and train. She makes everything so fun and accessible. Just brilliant.
Geraldine Locke
Retirement Transition Coach
The programme was great! Emer is a brilliant facilitator; she is encouraging and her templates really enabled me to gather my thoughts and articulate my direction.

The group work was really helpful and the other people on the programme were interesting and supportive.

I think for me the particularly useful aspects were the way that a graphical representation helps to make the brain work in a different way. I am a very linear person and this approach enabled me to see a much "bigger picture" perspective that I found invaluable. I really missed the programme once it was finished! I would thoroughly recommend it.

I signed up to do the course on a whim and a recommendation – would normally see the word "drawing" or "future" and run a mile... but I have been truly impressed by how effective and powerful using drawing to articulate and communicate has been. I might be terrible at drawing but the act of drawing really helps clarify things in the mind.

The tools and techniques – combined with some great coaching skills from Emer – have also made things that were hard to articulate really accessible and seem more fun and achievable.
The power of hand drawn images in goal setting 
  • Research shows you are 42% more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down.
  • Over 87% of people are visual thinkers. This means they find it easier to absorb information that is a combination of words
    and images rather than words alone.
  • The brain processes images 60,000 faster than text.
  • Visual coaching draws on right brain (creativity, intuition) AND left brain (logic, strategy) processing.
