"I give grateful praise to Anjana Deshpande as a satisfied student/customer/journal writer who felt the security of containment working with her in the online Journal to the Self class. It was clear to me from the beginning that she has the sensitivity, depth, and capacity to help a guy with a battalion of internal child soldiers learn to do the JTTS techniques; I am now able gently to decommission the army and let all those little boys be kids again and play on safe playgrounds."- PH
" I decided to do the Journal Writing course with Anjana a couple of months ago, unsure of where it would lead me. For me this has been an intimate journey with my soul and along the way I have found many gems that I will treasure for the rest of my life. It has given me an opportunity to reflect on my life – past,present and future. I have a better understanding of some of the key events of my life and the choices I have made. It has also helped me understand what I value most in my life. When you go through the exercises it is just your soul, your thoughts, your words. There is no one else. We all live very busy lives, fulfilling and at times challenging. The Journal Writing course provides you with a unique opportunity to go under the surface of daily routines and hustle and bustle of your life and reflect on where you have been and where you want to go and to have a dialogue with yourself. You can do the activities at your own pace which was really handy. Anjana helps you along the way through her astute observations, guidance and feedback. "

"A good overview of the 12 writing techniques of the Journal Ladder and how to use them with clients. Without the deadlines Anjana provided to our group to complete each writing technique, I would not have had an experiential understanding of them, which to me was so important. As a result, I feel much more confident using them with clients. The online sharing of the other participants and Anjana's feedback were very supportive and helpful and made the course enjoyable as well."
