What You Say

I have spent years now working with Joy, Secret Garden, Circles, (my wife and child), family and friends, knowing that I could perhaps move towards freedom by removing the outer layers I have created. Through this experience, I have finally seen my arrogance in judging that I might know anything about another when I don’t know the first thing about myself. This has felt so freeing, I now observe how I move in and out of well established patterns with an ever thinner disguise on. I used to say that this circle work saved my life but I now see it is my life. If there is more to do then I’m willing to do it. I want to live as true and in flow with life as I can and I feel that joining the circle is where I dread and what I love ~ Scott, Bristol

As so often before you know how to say right kind & loving words. You are so real & human…I love your woman’s warm wisdom. You have a gift to make the other, me, to feel heard, that is a blessing. I ‘feel’ that you know what I try to share & where my words might fail you read with your heart. You have healing, reassuring & calming influence on me. I feel you have much going on & you still gave me time, your soft feminine warm heart that you are  ~  Heidi Ovarassi, London

An ability to facilitate and hold a sacred space for areas of intimate relating and deep personal development that is rarely, if ever, offered elsewhere. Loved the feeling of safety and being held by the circle; the sense of wholeness felt by relating in a way, and with a depth, that is rarely possible in the usual course of living. A deep feeling of mutual trust, and the formation of close bonds within the circle. Offering the encouragement to step outside normal boundaries, thus facilitating change that might not otherwise have happened  Graham V., Bath

Secret Garden work is essential in my life as an ongoing thing…such quality I haven’t found anywhere else….You are so, so vigilant about constantly taking away from us our goals & ideals of becoming perfect or good & therefore deserving & loveable person we long to be (& already are!). I realised that I don’t expect perfection from myself anymore & therefore not from others, so now I don’t get disappointed or offended easily so I also don’t feel ‘tangled up in others’ in that exhausting way  ~  Surahbhi McMellahn, Ashburton

Precious jewels…I was smiling at the magnificence of it all, delivered in such a humble, ordinary way!  ~  Rachel Irvine-Fortescue, Minchinhampton

Joy’s tenderness and presence helps you to explore your vulnerability with love and benefit from relief (of) resistance and pain and…dismantling illusions ~ Alicia Ortiz, Andorra

Joy speaks with such depth and wisdom. I cannot recommend this highly enough 😃 ~ Kim Rossi, Notts

Just imagine what this might lead you to…..
