Prior to my session with Joanna, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was really blown away by what unfolded. I was feeling rather overwhelmed with everything I had to get done in my business and I wanted to move my energy out of my head. Joanna gently and skillfully guided me to explore how I could experience deep rest through a number of different embodied and creative activities. By the end of the session, I was able to feel a greater sense of calm in both my mind and body and I had also written a really beautiful poem! Joanna has a warm, caring and nurturing energy and I appreciated her ability to hold space and guide me through this new experience. I look forward to working with her again in the future!

Ineke and Joanna invite you to make contact with your deeper self, with those images, sensations and words that want to be seen but do not find their way out. They do it in a very gentle, respectful, and of course artistic way. I am grateful for the inspiration they provided on so many occasions in their workshops at the Emagine Center and for the insights their sessions have brought into my own life.

I truly think we all need to experience some Expressive Arts work in our lives! When I signed up to Joanna’s Expressive Art session I had no idea what to expect, so I went in with an open mind ready to explore deeper parts within myself. Art therapy was something very new to me, but Joanna has this amazing ability to make you feel fully at ease, seen and understood. She ensures that during the entire sessions you feel comfortable so you can experience the growth you seek. I gained such beautiful insights & a sense of confidence that I knew I was looking for, but I felt stuck in and didn’t know how to access it. I have to say, working with Joanna is a life-changing experience! No matter which areas in your life you‘re looking to create healing, growth or breakthroughs – you’ll be coming out of your sessions and with a deeper sense of clarity, awareness & self-trust. Truly powerful!

After discussing my question, Ineke suggested working with music and singing. It surprised me how quickly my emotions came and how intensely I experienced everything, even for a first session. Ineke knows how to offer the right words and atmosphere to create a safe space for self-investigation. Not everything can and should be put into words and that is what is so pleasant about this way of working.

Joanna with a really great workshop script helped me and my friend to find the best way to cooperate, find ourselves in the project we run and create a concrete plan for its future. Her expertise, creativity and patience in helping us understand and interpret hidden mind-gems were priceless. I would like to highly recommend Joanna but also the method of Expressive Arts itself as it is a mind-opening perspective and a long-term improvement of what we see inside of us and around. Thank you so much!

I was delighted to see my research group thriving during an amazing EXA workshop organized by Yohaku. Joanna and Ineke led us through engaging activities that made the team members get to know each other better and sparkled tons of new energy. I highly recommend Yohaku to any organization that values creative problem solving through teamwork, as we do at GQFI.

The prototyping weekend was not really what I expected and at the same time: it matched my best expectation, to live the experience. This is what I especially liked: that the body was invited to live the experience. Whether it was by dancing, playing music, painting… For me, it showed what was really alive in me and opened perspectives for further exploration. And I also had a great time doing this with like-minded people. Ineke and Joanna created a safe space where all of this was possible. They offered us just enough structure to let things happen. And gently they hosted what happened. Their reflections and questions helped to deepen the experience.

Joanna is an open-minded coach, inspiring person and an excellent artist who conducted the coaching sessions with great sensitivity to my feelings, needs, and fears. She was an amazing guide on my writing and creativity blockades. Thanks to her support, I realized which aspects of my work, attitudes, and strategies support a creative process and I became more aware of the different aspects of my work and role of the creativity in it. With a gentle push from Joanna, I discovered new paths and directions of my development. The sessions were all about experimenting, trusting your intuition, emotions and switching off the judgmental voice of your internal critic. The exercises proposed by Joanna are great tools that allow discovering different sources of creativity and motivation to create.
