Ben (NYC)

I cried when I got off the phone

…I felt so relieved and grateful. 
Dee Dee (NYC)

One of the areas that I appreciated most was Jude’s passionate interest in my development as an artist. 

She was incredibly inquisitive and used this knowledge she’d gained of me to tailor her questions and offer feedback in the way I needed.

Nikki (Australia and NYC) Actor and Playwright

   Jude has been supportive when my career search hit dead ends and that has been very valuable. 

   She guided my through my resume and gave me helpful advice to think about my career with a perspective that’s outside of my design world bubble. 

Ben (NYC) Graphic Designer

  Jude has been a great help with my creative work. I look forward to our sessions and come away with a list of ideas. She prods without pushing and listens without judging. 

   Because Jude has worked with different kinds of artists, she was more able than other coaches to help me brainstorm solutions to my work, which spans different mediums. She has worked with me on big picture issues as well as detailed problems.

    With her coaching, I’ve accomplished a dream — I helped start a new business selling eco arts products and we’re off to a terrific start!

Tara (Springfield IL) Artist and Writer

   When I had the great opportunity to talk with Jude Kampfner, it became clear to me that I was at an impasse with my editor.

   I don’t think the editor meant badly but it was in recognizing how much I was thrown off track that I was able to find my center again and resume the work.

   It was a profound experience and I am grateful for the help from Jude, her sensitivity, understanding and wisdom.

Gillian (NY) Journalist

   I felt so relieved and grateful for our conversation that I cried after we got off the phone. Not to add pressure or expectation to these early days of working together, but wow! That felt very grounding.

   Jude understands where I’m at and where I want to go.

Dee Dee (NYC) Writer and Multi Media Artist

  Jude turned my perspective around from seeing my unfinished manuscript as a failure, to regarding it as an ongoing creative endeavour that I would not only be able to complete but would continue to enjoy rather than fear the journey. 

   By emphasizing the positive, she gave me back the excitement of conjuring up stories. 

Margaret (Spain) Novelist

   Jude has been such an incisive and generous reader of my work, and meeting with her has helped immeasurably to both expand and focus my practice. As a poet wanting to move into essay and fiction writing, I cannot overstate how much working with her has enabled me to develop and implement strategies for making new and adventurous work; my uncertainty about how to proceed has been transmuted into a wealth of creative possibilities. You won’t find a more insightful and empathetic coach and interlocutor than Jude! 

Jeremy (NYC) Poet

  The coaching has helped a ton and keeps me in check of staying creative and honestly made me realize how much I have to focus on myself and on my work and put in the time.

Amy (NYC) Filmmaker

   Definitely helped to articulate one’s vision and put that on paper. Jude has been so kind and supportive.

Deborah (Austin Texas) Screenwriter and Director

   Jude stirred up many questions that forced me to think about my goals and my persona as a radio producer and gave me much insightful advice (where to pitch, new programs, think outside the box, importance of networking). I did not expect that it will be such an all-round coaching about my work in general.
