I have helped people reflect on their own life and see the good in what they already have, as well as looking at the difficulties with hope and acceptance.
My own struggles with emotional well-being have taught me how important and helpful it can be to focus on what is going right in one’s life, as well as looking compassionately and hopefully at what one would like to change.
Here are some examples of journals I have facilitated;
- Photographic journals of shared experiences such as holidays spent together, a shared weekend retreat etc.
- A journal where external participants in a Social Work degree have reflected on the years of coming together and working on projects with staff and students
- A celebration of the work of a Quaker committee through shared stories, reminiscences and achievements, plus the fun they have had together
