Heals.

I help people to use creativity in their journaling practice so they can feel less alone along the way to recovery from an eating disorder.

I’m Errin!

I fell into my love of art when I embarked on my journey to recovery from Binge Eating Disorder. I have learned how to use creativity, self compassion, and self awareness to heal. It is my intention to share what I’ve learned, from developing my own journaling practice, with anyone who is curious about using journaling as a part of their recovery adventure.

The Reflections Journal

Now Available!

Who is the journal for?

• those recovering from eating disorders

• those recovering from addiction

• those recovering from PTSD

• anyone developing a journaling habit

The Reflections Journal is a tool to be used to help establish a daily journaling practice. It encourages the use of writing, as well as art, to assist in making daily reflection a habit. Those in recovery from eating disorders, addiction or other mental health issues may use this journal to supplement their treatment.

The innovative layout of each daily two page spread offers one page lined for writing, noting what you are grateful for and what you have accomplished, as well as for setting some daily goals to assist in continuing to strive for personal growth. On the second page is blank space for expression through creativity with any medium.

Some days will be more challenging than others when endeavouring to start journaling regularly. It may seem impossible to write on those days, causing missed days, and hindering the probability that journaling can be made a habit. To help ease that pressure, there is a daily writing prompt and an illustration to colour to help ensure that the journal is attended to each day.

Recovery from illness or addiction takes time and focused intention. The Recovery Reflections Journal is the perfect companion for anyone who sees the benefits of using reflection to learn from one's own experiences and feelings.

I don’t know about you, but for 2019, I want to welcome more self-compassion into my life.

Good riddance self-judgment and shame.
