“The moment I put pen to paper, I begin to feel whole. My journal offers a sacred space where I am free to be me. To heal, to empty myself of the emotions and feelings that keep me trapped, and as I do so, I become one – in mind, body and soul” Belinda Bennetts

Belinda has been working as a journal therapist for many years, bringing a variety of creative courses and one to one sessions to groups and individuals from all walks of life. Her journal therapy and expressive writing for well-being courses are designed to help adults dealing with major life changes, teenagers with low self-esteem and exam stress, groups of corporates seeking a creative team building program, and everyone in between.

Belinda has been facilitating expressive writing workshops with a group of girls involved with Start360 since January 2019, with a mix of individual, group-work and take-home exercises.

Many of the girls were nervous starting out, and didn’t know what to expect as they had never attended something like this before.  Belinda supported them from day one, letting them go at their own pace, building on their strengths and gently challenging when necessary.  They have felt able to express themselves in an environment that is non-judgemental and empowering.  To see how the girls have progressed since day one has been amazing, they have been able to let themselves go creatively because they feel no judgement only encouragement.

Belinda’s “write to awaken” workshop was fantastic. It really spoke to the depths that writing can take us on our personal journey of revelation and understanding. I would highly recommend Belinda Bennetts as she is extremely thorough, understanding and has a soft and caring energy. A real gift to attend her class!
