Journaling for Wellbeing

Journaling for Beginners – with Steve

Hello, my name is Steve Watts and I am delighted to be offering this journaling course for Sunderland Recovery College students.

The course will be delivered at Hope Street Xchange on Hind Street in Sunderland SR1 3QD. Numbers are limited so it is essential that you register if you wish to attend the course. There is also free parking available, but it must be booked in advance if you wish to park at Hope Street. You will need to let me know, via Kim, if you wish to book a parking space with your car registration number. It is a course which runs for six weeks and you are encouraged to attend all sessions, if possible, to gain the maximum benefit from the course.

‘This morning I was thinking about what you said yesterday about going on a journey and being ready for when we come out of Lockdown. It made me think that I must get my life organised … If it wasn't for this journaling course I would never have even thought about it.’
