Poetry Therapy - Join My Haiku Club

Poetry therapy is a pathway for personal development by expressing your feelings and thoughts through this wonderful art form. Where artists paints a picture, so a poet conjures images and thoughts in the mind.

Clients have found coaching sessions involving poetry very therapeutic and may be just the medium for you to organise your thinking and ideas. I work with the Haiku, a Japanese form of poetry which is very short just 17 syllables or sounds and focuses on the mindfulness of a moment in time. It can help you to express your mood or emotions and write them down, a thinking dairy but within a beautiful art form. They usually connect a thought within the observation of natural surroundings.

Matsuo Basho is the ancient master of HAIKU

A frog jumps into the pond, (7)
splash! Silence again. (5)

Critical Thinking

Critical thinking is a great way to manage your thoughts with language games and a therapy to organise your ideas. Talking topics discussions debates can be stimulating and fun as well as exercising your mind and learning how to express yourself in a concise and articulate way.

Sessions and coaching will give you bags of confidence and awake your senses -all vital for mental well being to go forward in your life with much more confidence.

The Talking Wall

This unique programme is aimed to help each client focus on a structure in their minds where they organise challenges and psychological obstacles by putting them down upon their own bricks to make their own wall. We work on each brick until you have the knowledge, tools and confidence to break down the barriers and rebuild the bricks in the form of a pathway symbolising your way forward to realise your dreams and goals.

William B Miller for CCL Labels

"Janie was always very clear, compassionate and provided excellent advice, helping me to develop confidence in my own voice. After I began working with Jane, she encouraged me to participate in a debating team. She worked diligently coaching me through the debate process and together we worked on confident public speaking and forming clear articulate arguments."
