At 40 it was heartbreak which kicked me out of my comfort zone and into the world – forcing me to travel, reminding me how good it is for my Wellbeing in the process. I discovered travel is as beneficial as therapy. It stimulates the mind, encourages wellbeing and psychological growth. As well as challenging all aspects of enculturation.
Travelling long term as a family brought its own challenges, a huge sense of fun and stimulation. I healed wounds, had adventures, discovered the world and different cultures. Educating my children in the process. Enabling me to develop a deeper and more personal relationship with my own psyche and allowing us all to become Global Citizens.
Hi, I’m Jan and after training & practicing as a Humanistic Therapist and working as a Lecturer in Counselling, I was able to develop a professional understanding into the human psyche.
Finding my own way to Wellbeing has been an interesting journey, which has evolved throughout each stage and phase of life. From childhood to parenthood, with many tragic and amazing experiences in-between.
Life is an adventure to be filled with meaningful moments. Creating memories to be treasured forever.
On our return from travelling I felt the desire to write. Words flowed onto paper. First crafting a manuscript about our travels and reason for taking time out. Then moving on to create travel articles which were published both online and in various magazines. (Australia & New Zealand, Juno Parenting, Essex Life, Real Travel.) Eventually developing my own travel blog and working with various businesses, people and organisations (The Scottish Tourist Board, Eurostar, Sandos Resorts, BonAppetour & Cindy Joseph – Owner of Skincare and Cosmetic company BOOM! ) to name but a few.
As creation and evolution go hand in hand, so my interest developed from blogging purely about travel, flowering into a deeper interest into Travel and Wellbeing.
I decided I want to empower others into developing Wellbeing. I’m now a Travel & Wellbeing Consultant, Blogger and Practitioner.
