“Journalling is paying attention to the inside for the purpose of living well from the inside out.”

– Lee Wise –

Journal Writing Facilitator &

Life Coach

I’m Ingrid, a life coach with a primary school teaching background.  I created a journal writing process, Diving for Pearls, a couple of years ago.  I was going though a tough time and noticed that my journal writing was going around in circles.  I knew about the power of journal writing, but I was stuck.  Once I changed the way I journalled, I started to see incredible benefits in my life.

At the beginning of 2020, when the first wave of COVID-19 swept into Australia, the community collectively experienced anxiety and uncertainty.  I wanted to help. 

The Journal Community was born, a safe place for people to be guided by a step-by-step process as they embrace their emotions and learn from their experiences, find answers from within, while connecting with like-minded people. 

This community has evolved and includes both live sessions and guided videos.  It’s no longer about a pandemic, but ongoing wellbeing.  A place for people to be supported as they check-in, reflect and are inspired by their insights.

Ingrid has a very pleasant and kind approach to her journaling method. She guides you step by step through each stage, giving you space to journal your feelings but also support to help you process those thoughts and emotions. I would recommend Ingrid’s coaching and workshops to everyone and anyone!

I found the session with Ingrid very helpful and helped me really think about what I wanted to focus on moving forward with my life. The structure of the journal writing process was very useful and allowed me to go deeper and clarified some issues in my life. Looking forward to keeping the practice up - 😊 Ingrid

Journaling? Simple, easy not really worth the effort yeah? WRONG. I have attended a few online journaling sessions and was thinking just those things. Until the day I looked up and there was Ingrid. This wonderful Life Coach is so in tune with where we are all at in our lives and takes journaling to a whole new level. Every week I am immersed in just one thing. Journaling. I find something I probably didn't realise about myself and my life each time. Ingrid's format and how she so kindly, gently & compassionately leads us to where we realise things about ourselves and our own journeys. We can dissect them and come up with answers for ourselves. I truly believe this is unparalleled. I wouldn't miss a weekly session with Ingrid and her group of beautiful souls for anything. Thank you from my heart Ingrid.

What a life changing experience! My first journal session with Ingrid was the beginning of a new way of connecting with myself. Diving For Pearls journaling is a simple but powerful exercise, it opens doorways and creates positive change in your life through a journey of self discovery.

Ingrid has built a wonderful, supportive and positive journal community in a short period of time - not easy to manage in an online environment. It is this online environment that makes it easy to join her weekly workshops, feel psychologically safe to contribute (if you choose), and journal in your own comfortable surroundings. Ingrid has developed a strategic and considered structure for her journal workshops - she very clearly outlines each step and guides you to uncover your own "hidden gems". A self-confessed "love bug", Ingrid fosters a welcoming, warm and supportive community where genuine friendships are formed. Thank you Ingrid!

Ingrid's Diving For Pearls journal process has been a wonderful support for me during the last 12 months. Right from the very first workshop I was able to use the process to uncover useful insights that fueled my personal growth. I quickly joined Ingrid's weekly journal community and have loved every session. She creates a beautiful space for us to explore what's on our mind and connect with others in the community. Ingrid, you truly has a gift for helping people through journalling, thanks so much for sharing it!

Journal With Ingrid has proven to be an important part of my life and I am constantly "surprised" at the power and achievement I feel from a journaling session. The structure and information in each session is top quality. Ingrid's leadership is professional and always friendly and I know that an important part (and one that I had underestimated) was being introduced to the inclusive and broad ranging members of her journal Community.

Each journaling session, thoughtfully and sensitively led by Ingrid, takes me on a journey of self discovery. Sometimes challenging, sometimes comforting, sometimes magical, each session takes me down a path that lets me explore an aspect of myself. Every time I discover a gem for personal growth. The journaling community is so supportive and keeps things in perspective. Thanks Ingrid
