Journal Writing

Diving for Pearls

Thinking takes up a lot of energy which is why journalling is so important.  Taking what’s on your mind and putting it on paper actually gives your brain a break.  But, journalling is so much more than just feeling relaxed.

This journalling workshop is like diving for pearls.  They’re found hidden, deep below the water’s surface, waiting to be coaxed out.  My 5-step process will guide you to discover your own gems, those amazing answers and insights hidden within.

This supportive process is designed to give you a fresh perspective, where you feel lighter, grounded, clear, calm, happy and empowered to take inspired action. 

Journal in a way that

meets you where you’re at

Ingrid’s Journaling for workshop was really valuable for me. It gave me a new tool for dealing with stress in a therapeutic and meaningful way. It taught me how to process emotions, get to the root cause of the stress and see the meaning and opportunity in any situation. Her journaling technique has empowered me to move forward with problems much more constructively and quickly than other stress management techniques. I highly recommend doing this workshop and believe everyone can gain a lot from it. Susan White

Life is a roller coaster ride and our emotions are there to guide us to something more.  If you’re feeling stressed, overwhelmed, frustrated or experiencing any unwanted emotion, this process will help and support you.  If everything is going well and you want to keep that feeling alive, this process will guide you to create even more goodness in your life.  As you learn each of the 5 transformational steps, you will have the opportunity to put them into practice and ask meaningful questions based on your experience of the process.

Everything about this journal writing program works for me: from the initial workshop (delivered so nimbly, yet warmly by Ingrid) to the takeaway techniques for ready application. I value my enhanced daily journaling, not only for the discoveries and pointers to action, but also the lightness of being (physical and mental) that inevitably flows. Some things in life are simply essential – journaling the 5-step way is definitely one. Glenys Hodgson

Working with Ingrid online in the comfort of my own home was amazing!  She’s a delight! And even though I have been journaling for some time, the insights I gained along with a new way of writing were surprising! I’m excited to take my journaling to an all new level with the insightful promptings I learnt. I’m grateful for the experience and would recommend the workshop to anyone wanting to allow a deeper unfolding of your time spent with pen and paper.

The 5 step journal workshop has enabled me to gain the maximum benefit from journaling. I have done quite a bit of journaling in the past, but I am finding  that  I am gaining much more insight by working through the five steps. Ingrid takes you through the process in an empathetic and helpful manner, thus making it an easy and enjoyable activity. The course has certainly been helpful during this stressful time but I am now making it a part of my daily routine.

I was super excited to attended one of Ingrid’s “Journaling to transform Stress” online workshops, and who wouldn’t want an effective tool to help manage their current unusual circumstances? The group class was small and intimate with time (& privacy) to explore the interactive element of the learning. It was beautifully structured and flowed whilst being an authentic way to connect inwards in the presence of others. The time just zipped by and there was still space for questions and reflections. It really helped with my worrisome thoughts and I am blown away by the aftercare and support too. Highly recommended – don’t miss this one. Clare MacDonald

Who is this Journaling Workshop for?

People who Journal

Do you enjoy journal writing but would like a little more guidance to take your journaling to a whole new level?  It can feel good getting your thoughts onto the page, but it’s important to explore well beyond your initial outpouring of thoughts and emotion.

People Who Want to Journal

Have you ever thought about journaling but aren’t sure where to start or what to do? Sometimes the thought of putting your thoughts and emotions on paper can feel daunting.  This framework is kind and gentle and will support you.


When you weave this journaling strategy into your organisation, you will change the way you deal with stress, the way you work and communicate.  Imagine the impact of giving people the opportunity to transform their stress instead of holding onto it?  Happy people are productive people.

How you think and feel about yourself and the world around you, impacts all areas of your life.

Journaling is a way of pressing pause on your own thoughts and emotions, giving yourself the opportunity to come home to you.

When you feel grounded, calm, inspired and clear, you make good decisions for yourself and those around you, sending ripples of love and kindness out into the world.  That’s where true change begins.

Say yes to your wellbeing and come and journal with me!
