In my intuitive approach, ‘being, listening, and holding space’ are really important. I believe that each person I work with already has what they need inside – and my role is to gently empower.
So, I’m incredibly appreciative of the testimonials I receive and especially proud of the wonderful souls behind them. We are each a mirror to the other – and together we grow.
“I loved taking part in the Explore, Shape & Share programme where I learned so much, like how to structure a piece of writing and some tips and tricks to help engage the reader. The small group size and the mutual respect between all participants helped to create a safe space for me to share some personal story in my writing. I really enjoyed reading other participant’s pieces every week and it was a lovely confidence boost to get some positive feedback on mine. Probably the most beneficial part of the programme for me was the ‘Creative Spotlight’ where Jo lovingly critiqued a piece I wrote and gave insightful suggestions on how it could be improved. It worked well for me that I could watch back videos whenever it suited me as I am generally busy during the day. Throughout the programme, Jo and Valerie offered unwavering support, encouragement and expertise and lots of love. I highly recommend this programme and working with Jo if you are looking for support with your writing.”
“It was a pleasure to participate in Jo’s Explore Shape and Share Personal Story programme. Jo is enthusiastic about writing, and has a lovely way of breaking the process of writing and sharing story down into easy to understand chunks. She has a very caring and engaging approach which makes you feel safe to experiment and share your writing. Her feedback about any writing submitted to the group is given in a thoughtful, positive and constructive way. The group environment provided a safe and supportive space in which to share. I would highly recommend the Explore Shape and Share programme to anyone who is wanting to take their writing further, but is feeling a little hesitant or unsure of where to start.”
