“The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.” – Carrie Bradshaw.
"To be loved is to be seen & known. Getting to know yourself is the same as nurturing any other intimate relationship. You spend quality time creating memories together. You share what's on your mind, you listen, and you're there for one another. Over time, your bond strengthens, you build trust and respect. That's why I'm a huge fan of journaling. It's how you make time for those all-important conversations between you and you. It's a release! It's a simple act of self-love that takes you away from the chaos of busy life. Through daily chats on the page, you notice how you're feeling, you listen to your inner voice, and you remember what matters most to you... without feeling guilty, bad or selfish. Journaling silences that constant hum of negative thinking. Imagine feeling at peace with that? I think that's the place I'm trying to get back to when life becomes stressful and overwhelming. My journal is part of my healing toolkit, and a necessary part of my well-being."
- Lisa Parkes

"In the first piece of journaling, I was surprised to discover that my brain had been really tired coming into it. The brain muscle was tired of all the thinking I’d done last week trying to solve things and figure them out. Through the free-writing, I got in touch with a wise knowing presence that sees and interprets a bigger picture. It could effortlessly put pieces together – not like all the tiresome thinking I had been caught up in. The session was fun and it gave me a precious chance to have time with myself and breathe. Thank you for the invaluable gift of sharing your own knowledge and journaling experience. It’s great to have the tips and prompts, and to hear about what you learned recently on your Gestalt Therapy course."

"I loved that I was able to access a layer of myself underneath my habitual thoughts. It felt freeing and lovely. A little like a breath of fresh air that created space. This is where I met ‘myself’, a ‘self’, a close friend, who is always there with me, living life with me every day, but who I do not normally meet. This was beautiful and something new that the journalling facilitated. Meeting that self in the session, and giving her time to breathe and speak made me happy. It reassured me that there is a wise presence there always. I left realising that it would help tremendously to get to know her better, and integrate her presence into my life and consciousness."

"I had been really looking forward to some time just for me. I realised I hadn’t done any long form journalling for 8 months and it was good to have the space to do this again. I picked up some new tools and felt deeply calm during the session. It was a very physical sense of calmness (maybe peace or contentment) that I could feel in my chest. I definitely felt I had unloaded the stresses and strains of the day. I felt really good afterwards. I felt lighter and as though I want to journal some more. I also felt pride that I had done something positive, enjoyable and necessary for myself."

We kick off on Thursday 1st June 2023. The live journal experience with Lisa runs for 30 days up until 30th June 2023. The weekly group coaching calls will be every Thursday at 7.30pm. Put these dates in you diary: 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th June.
I don't blame you - I only hang out there for work! 😉 I think you can, but it would be a slightly different experience. The group coaching calls will be recorded and uploaded to the course platform. Here, on the course platform, you'll also find space to ask questions and leave comments. You will be fully supported by me in this way, but you won't be part of the conversation in the private Facebook group.
Not at all, this journal experience is for all levels. Everybody will start in a different space and everybody will take what they need from it. What helps is if you like writing and enjoy self-reflection. Many Wildhearts I work with consider themselves 'not creative' at all, and they are usually the ones who surprise themselves. We're all creative but it's like a muscle that needs regular exercise. If you have learning difficulties, may I suggest rambling instead of writing. You can record yourself responding to the journal prompts into a Google Doc. It's a great way to get your words onto the page. What's inside of you must come out of you! If you'd like to experience what it's like to work with me in a group setting, join my friendly and fun, free community 'Journal in your Jammies' where you'll meet other sensitive Wildhearts who are committed to prioritising their emotional well-being.
Short answer: Yes! Everything will be recorded. You will have access to the course for longer than 30 days. Long answer: Really, there's no such thing as being left behind. You do this at your own pace - I want you to enjoy it! If you miss a day or two, nobody gets into trouble. Journaling is about self-expression and freedom to bring yourself to the page in a way that feels good to you. Make it fit around your life and work for you. This is your opportunity to carve out a journal practice on your terms.
Short answer: 15 minutes a day, or 2.5 hours a week. Long answer: Your journal prompt for each day is a video which is no longer than 5 minutes. Then you'll need at least 10 minutes a day to complete the free-fall writing. You can choose to write for less time or longer if you want to! The weekly group coaching calls are about 30-45 minutes. These calls will be on a Thursday at 7.30pm. My approach is relaxed and gentle, so if you miss a day, this is not an opportunity to beat yourself up. You just pick it up again the next day. Make it fit around your life and work for you. This is your opportunity to carve out a journal practice on your terms.
Yes. For those people that can't make the live calls, the replays will be uploaded here on the course platform. I will name check people by their first name only.
I don't know at this point if I will run You Got the Love live in the near future. It depends on my schedule and if I feel inspired to do so.
My journal is an essential part of my toolkit for getting back in touch with my inner world when life gets stressful and busy. As an HSP and survivor of C-PTSD (complex post traumatic stress disorder), I was often overwhelmed by self-doubt and confusion. I still am sometimes! I couldn't switch off my mind and I was so tired! I felt bad that I couldn't meditate, but then I found journaling. My journal coaching is intuitive and through the lens of a sensitive soul who is client-centred and compassionate. If you'd like to experience what it's like to work with me in a group setting, join my friendly and fun, free community 'Journal in your Jammies' where you'll meet other sensitive Wildhearts who are committed to prioritising their emotional well-being.
