“Journaling is paying attention to the inside for the purpose of living well from the inside out.”

Journal Writing Teacher &

Life Coach

I’m Ingrid, a life coach with a primary school teaching background.  I created a journal writing process, Diving for Pearls, a couple of years ago.  I was going though a tough time and noticed that my journal writing was going around in circles.  I knew about the power of journal writing, but I was stuck.  Once I changed the way I journalled, I started to see incredible benefits in my life.

At the beginning of 2020, when the first wave of COVID-19 swept into Australia, the community collectively experienced anxiety and uncertainty.  I wanted to help. 

The Journal Community was born, a safe place for people to be guided by a step-by-step process as they embrace their emotions and learn from their experiences, find answers from within, while connecting with like-minded people. 

This community has evolved and includes both live sessions and guided videos.  It’s no longer about a pandemic, but ongoing wellbeing.  A place for people to be supported as they check-in, reflect and are inspired by their insights.  


Make time for your wellbeing, become kinder towards yourself and surround yourself with inspiring people. 

This is a new kind of journal writing experience that combines a step-by-step guided process with an inspiring community.  

Making time for yourself has never been easier or more important. 

Whether you want to de-stress, explore, expand, grow, heal, let-go, shift or understand something on a deeper level, you will be supported and nurtured with this process.
