Journaling for Beginners 1 - Starting Out with Steve
Hello, my name is Steve Watts and I am delighted to be offering this beginners’ course on journaling for wellbeing for Sunderland Recovery College.
I have been involved in education and training my whole life, starting out as a teacher in schools in Northumberland in 1981.
Following over a decade as a teacher I started working for the University of Sunderland training teachers.
In 2019 I co-authored a book on special educational needs and wanted to turn the ideas I had written about in the book into my lifelong passion to be a coach and mentor in order to support and help people achieve their goals. In particular,
I wanted to share my passion for journal writing as a tool to help people.
I had experienced a mental health episode in 2000 and journaling had helped me get through it.
I am confident it can help other people too, so I’ve written this course for Sunderland Recovery College. As one College student wrote after the February course ‘my journal is like having my best friend by my side 24/7.’
I would like to say a big thank you for delivering the journaling course, I really enjoyed it and learnt a lot of useful and helpful methods of off-loading my thoughts and feelings onto paper.’
