“I’m enjoying the course. I’m finding it very helpful as a transition from counselling which I finished in July. I tend to bottle things up, so journaling this regularly is helping me from doing it too much. I have never thought about the benefits or different ways to journal. It’s opened my mind to it all. I like the way the content is laid out and presented.”
