Journaling as a Therapeutic Tool to resolve health problems
Maria Hammond

The theory behind journaling and its impact on wellbeing is that, by writing about the unexpressed thoughts and feelings from a stressful situation, you are reducing the impact of these stressors on your physical and mental health.
Some benefits in a nutshell:
· Clarify thoughts and express feelings
· Feel better physically and mentally
· Resolve past stressful experiences
· Improve relationships and resolve disagreements
· Learn to understand yourself (and others) better
· Help you examine patterns, thoughts and beliefs that make you feel bad
· Remove creative or expressive blocks
· Improve health
· Lessen and get rid of pain
Maria Hammond coaches and empowers clients with chronic pain how to resolve stress and pain for good using simple therapeutic tools. Therapeutic journaling is one of the main tools she teaches her clients to resolve the psycho-physiological causes of pain. During this talk Maria will explain a few therapeutic journaling techniques, briefly talk about how it works as a form of therapy, and discuss the numerous mental and physical health benefits writing can have.
