I want to help you connect with your soul, find your courage and live your purpose.
It is my deep belief that we all have a deeper purpose guiding us here on this planet.
We all have something unique to offer the world, and we all have the capacity for creativity.
Sadly, so many of us have lost the connection to our creative self and to our deep knowing of who we really are.
Often without realising it, we let ourselves be guided by our fears rather than our courage, and we let outside voices steer us away from our own deep sense of purpose. Sometimes we completely lose our connection to that sacred part of ourselves.
A creative journaling practice can help us reconnect with that inner wisdom.
I combine my training in life coaching and positive psychology, my years of experience as a teacher, and my personal experience with my life-changing creative journaling practice to offer powerful online classes and one-on-one coaching that help women connect with their soul, find their courage and live a life of purpose.
A little about my creative journaling approach
Creative journaling is simply expressing yourself using both words and visual elements in your journal. I differentiate creative journaling from art journaling in the sense that creative journaling tends to focus on the process rather than the end product.
The best definition I have found comes from Lucia Capacchione:
In Creative Journaling art is used as a vehicle for emotional and spiritual expression and a means to gain insight into one's life. The emphasis is on the process and the inner journey, not on the visual and esthetic result or effect.
Without wanting to sound dramatic, creative journaling is the number one tool I've used to literally transform my life: I've overcome depression, gained clarity around what really matters to me, learned to cherish who I am, found courage to make major life changes, and learned how to let my own inner wisdom and truth guide me.
I believe anyone can benefit from a creative journaling practice. It is a simple tool with so many benefits, and doesn't require any special skills. The approach I take is not focused on making pretty art (although it can sometimes be appealing to the eye), but rather on the transformational process of exploring our emotions and meeting ourselves on the page.
Because my approach is focused on the healing process of journaling rather than the outcome, you don't need to learn any special skills. All you need is a journal, a few basic craft supplies and a desire to show up honestly.
It is my hope that I can help other women to heal and grow, through openly sharing my own story, through my creative life coaching and by teaching everything I know about creative journaling.
