Feel calm, confident, supported and inspired in work AND life

Creative Journaling Professional Development for Allied health workers

Creative Journaling is a space to take care of YOU. Inside this workshop, you’ll learn new art therapy and journaling techniques to support your creativity and wellbeing. For Professionals and Creative Women.

Social workers, counsellors, mental health professionals, psychologists, nurses, allied health workers and therapists of all kinds.

I see you throwing your heart and soul into your clients and your career. And yes, there are days when the work is deeply rewarding and inspiring— but there’s no denying it can be exhausting, demanding and emotionally draining, too.

When it comes to your work, there’s no doing things by halves.

So, what do you do when things get tough?

  • When the cases pile up?
  • When the workload feels unmanageable?
  • When your clients’ struggles and traumas start to creep into your out of hours and weigh on your heart?
  • When you’re overworked, overwhelmed and over it?

Every day you help clients navigate the complex journey of their own mental health, wellbeing and healing.

Every day you take care of others.

But who’s taking care of you?

Creative Journaling for Helping Professionals is a space to take care of YOU

Hi, I’m Sally

Mental Health Social Worker  |  Counsellor  |  Art Therapist

I believe in the importance of play and creativity to support our healing process.

I believe in the power of art to help us express the inexpressible.

I believe it’s vital that health professionals and women focus on caring for themselves and not just others.

I’ve worked in the mental health sector for over 15 years with complex children, young people and adults to support them on their journey to live safe and healthy lives.

Now, through art therapy, I create a safe space for people in helping roles to find meaning and healing— and transform their lives. It’s my mission to be the kind, safe, supportive guidance they need to feel centred, resilient, fulfilled and at peace.

Welcome to the gentle space you’ve been looking for, I’m so glad you’re here.

Taking time for yourself is essential if you want to survive and thrive in your career 🌟

YOU are your greatest asset. Your emotional resilience, motivation and inspiration all directly impact your ability to help your clients AND find joy and fulfilment in what you do. And your capacity to hold space for others requires that you do the same for yourself.

Is it time to invest in you?

How much time do I need to complete the online professional development?

If you set aside an hour each week to attend the workshops you will learn strategies to feel calm, energised and connected to your creativity AND have valuable techniques to use with clients.

If you want to join in the weekly challenges, connect with others in the Facebook group or take what you learn and deepen your creative practice on your own you’ll need a little more time to do that— but how much is completely up to you.

What if I can’t make the weekly workshop?

No stress, you’ll get access to the recording afterwards so you can watch it back whenever suits you. AND you’ll have lifetime access to the recording so you can go back to it whenever you want to revisit the learnings.

Do I need to be an artist or have any special skills to join this online training?

Absolutely not. Creative Journaling for Helping Professionals is for everyone. You don’t need to be ‘good’ at art — or even think of yourself as a creative person — to have fun, explore your experiences and express yourself through this online retreat.

Is this an art class?

Creative Journaling for Helping Professionals will teach you creative skills to tap into yourself and tools you can then use with your clients. It WON’T teach you specific art techniques and practices.

Does Creative Journaling for Helping Professionals count towards my continuing professional development?

It sure does, because you can use the strategies you learn to help your own clients! AND you can even claim the online retreat as a tax deduction. Win-win.

What art supplies and tools do I need to participate in the class?

You’ll need something to make your art on. Like a journal or paper. And you’ll need something to make your art with for example watercolours, pastels, paintbrushes, pencils, textas or collage materials.

You can build your own kit or add a Journal Art Supplies Kit for $97 when you book your spot and I’ll take care of it all for you and have everything delivered straight to your door before we kick off our first workshop.

Can I use the worksheets with my clients?

Yes! The free journaling worksheets delivered in the course are for you to use yourself and with your clients. However, they shouldn’t be distributed to colleagues or others in your network or repurposed and sold.
