Joy as an act of resistance, Siobhan Goffee

Languishing? Emotion of the 2020's so far, right? Get back in touch with what brings you joy and create your own 'joy project' in this uniquely happy course.

Why we love this course

Feeling a bit meh? Yep, we hear you. If ever there was a time to work out how to get a bit of joy back in your life then the (almost) aftermath of a pandemic has got to be it, right? Come on, Line of Duty has finished anyway, what else are you going to do?

Siobhan’s unique course is designed to lift your languishing self off the sofa and give you the support you need to get back in touch with what really makes you happy. And yes, we know family, friends, career [insert thing you should say makes you happy here] have a positive impact on your life, but what about YOU? The real you, the one who isn’t feeling ‘fitter, happier, more productive’ (yes, we love the 90’s Radiohead vibes here).

Finding that person again can be harder than you think and we guess that’s why Siobhan has aptly named her course ‘Joy As An Act of Resistance’. Learning how to look past the obvious to focus on what is really important is hard and requires bravery, but it’s really the only way you can leave the languishing you behind for good.

Through a blend of group coaching, discussion and focused individual activities Siobhan will help you to reconnect with yourself and make a plan to build joy back into your life.

You will be encouraged to plan your own, individual joy project. Joy projects so far have ranged from exploring ideas for a social enterprise to creating a joyful getaway space. The planning of each project is supported by two, one to one life coaching sessions which take place in weeks 4 and 6. 

You’ll be offered a discounted life coaching package at the end of the course if you feel that you would like to continue this work.

Taking this course won’t mean that you want to run away from the life you have, it will make you appreciate what you have ( family, friends, career, other stuff) even more.
