“From Visual Thinking to Visual Consciousness”
A Brief Introduction to My Work

From Visual Thinking to Visual Consciousness: In my work, I partner with individuals, couples and organizations to integrate mind-mapping, personal mandalas and other forms of Visual tools and processes to help them create a new frame of reference and lens through-which to view their world.

My approach enables clients to find greater meaning and purpose, untangle issues, and move from being stuck to being in action.

For several decades enormous research and study has been done to bring back the ancient art and techniques of Visual Thinking, integrate it with Critical Thinking, and to move it beyond merely creative expression.

One form of Visual Thinking is the art and technique of mind-mapping which dates back to the 3rd century when Porphyry of Tyros showcased the concept categories of Aristotle.

Another form of Visual Thinking is the Mandala known in antiquity throughout the world.

We are naturally wired to rapidly make sense of, and remember, visual input yet so often this form of learning and exploring deep within is discounted or forgotten.

Although not known by its name, I stumbled into using Visual Thinking techniques during childhood as a means to cope with, and compensate for, undiagnosed learning difficulties. It has been an integral part of my personal life for 60+ years, and integral to my coaching practice over the past 40 years.

Let’s Journey Together

Over the past nine years Clay has helped me tremendously, both personally and professionally, with his reframing and Heart & Mind-Mapping expertise. His intuitive and creative approach has helped me gain a fresh and unique perspective with which to navigate through difficult and challenging life AND BUSINESS situations.

Clay and his process of Heart & Mind-Mapping was a beautiful vision board. I have deep appreciation of his intuitive guidance that created this session. This process allowed me to really see where I can take action. I am deeply grateful to Clay and his work.

Clays big heart and warm humor were present right from the beginning, which made it easy for me to trust him. He listens deeply and captures the content as well as the information between the lines. In the right moments he shows his persistence – a persistence, which is rooted in compassion. His ability to use his Heart & Mind-Map process in real time is legendary.
