“I found myself in completely unchartered territory. I’d never been a part of any therapeutic sessions that used creative writing as a medium, but found myself really engaging with the process as it allowed me to express parts of me in ways and means that I never thought possible.”

“I love that you focused on the future not the past and then gave me useful tools to move forward in life. Thank you”

“I feel like Romi understood me. She made everything make sense and showed me how to put things back in perspective. I felt better after.”

“I came with an idea and left with a plan. I couldn’t be happier. Thank you Romi”

“I learnt a lot about my inner dialogue and definitely came away with tools to navigate through many of the blocks that I had been carrying around with me.”

“I’ve done a lot of workshops and that was definitely the best workshop I have ever done. Thank you”

Holistic Counselling

One-on-one sessions


“I love that you focused on the future not the past and then gave me useful tools to move forward in life. Thank you”

“I enjoyed using writing in the session. I have never experienced something like this before. It was really challenging but helped me concentrate, focus and think clearly and importantly – it was fun too.”

“I find Romi really easy to talk to and her style of counseling gentle yet effective. The two sessions I have had so far have been very helpful. I like the way she makes you see the different points of the problem and shows you how simple sometimes the answers can be.

I felt the heaviness lifted by talking to her and found her very easy to connect and relate to. She helped me to relax and ease the nervousness of starting a new job and moving away from my family and friends.

I have cried and I laughed with her and I am very grateful for her kind words. Big thanks Romi!”

“You have helped me far more than you could possibly imagine! You helped me integrate all the information, thoughts and feelings that had arisen on my travels and with other various spiritual treatments I had received, plus the issues I had brought with me from home. You helped me develop an action plan with tools and writing that I could go home with to help me keep my new-found peace of mind. It really tied everything together for me. You gave me a good bag of gems to take home and play with. Thank you Romi for creating the space to let me be me and for listening without judgement, you made me feel safe and accepted for all that I am. Your insight is deeply appreciated.”

“I was worried my thoughts were crazy or silly but you made me feel normal and like I could cope with life again.”

“Thank you for our counseling session. Your words of wisdom have aided with my empowerment and I’m incredibly grateful that our paths crossed. Your infectious smile and gentle stoicism is something I’ll always remember.”

“I’ve been going to counselors for my eating disorder for over ten years now and that was the best session I have ever had. That was the first time I wasn’t made to feel stupid and where I felt I was talking to someone who was my equal but with loads to teach and share with me. I now feel I have a new set of tools and tricks I can try that will be with me always. I feel empowered. Thank you.”

“I feel like Romi understood me. She made everything make sense and showed me how to put things back in perspective. I felt better after.”

“When I first met Romi all I did was cry. She showed me ways to calm down. She taught me how to breathe properly, to write in my diary and to understand what happens when I feel sad so I can feel better again.”

“I wish every teenager could have a Romi in their life.”

Writing Mentorship

One-on-one sessions


“Romi helped take the stress out of what seemed like such a big project (designing a new blog) by teaching me how to break things down in to manageable bites. It is still a big project but now it feels doable.”

“Romi helped me work through an idea I had for a book and made understanding it much more simple than the mess in my head. She shared tools with me around brainstorming and mapping out, encouraging me to understand for myself the way my brain works best and how I problem-solve. We discussed themes, character development and storyline and I left the session feeling much more confident and clear.”

“I am very happy I booked a session with Romi when I was about to launch my own blog. She gave me very clever advice on how to structure my ideas, ease my writing, get comfortable with getting personal in the “About me” section and boost the blog’s visibility.

Romi was able to take a very hands-on approach, examining one aspect of the project after the other, which helped demystify the whole process.
At the same time, she was open to my deep feelings and desires, leading a great conversation which proved very useful and interesting.

I highly recommend her as a writing consultant.”

“I came with an idea and left with a plan. I couldn’t be happier. Thank you Romi”

Writing from the Source

“I found myself in completely unchartered territory. I’d never been a part of any therapeutic sessions that used creative writing as a medium, but found myself really engaging with the process as it allowed me to express parts of me in ways and means that I never thought possible.”

“Romi’s course was 2 days full of self-examination and above all fun. I walked away with so many useful tools to help me in my day to day life. Romi is understanding and intelligent – the perfect inspiring combination.”

“I learnt a lot about my inner dialogue and definitely came away with tools to navigate through many of the blocks that I had been carrying around with me.”


Writing from The Source

Half-Day Workshop


“Romi’s Workshop is a dynamic session which really brings you into the present and into the most honest expression you can gather in that moment. It shows you how very simple expression can be. Her momentum and presence in this workshop is very inspiring as she demonstrates easy ways of breaking through our creative blocks and into the truth of our current experience. I would highly recommend sessions with Romi, regardless of if writing is a passion or an aversion, it is a great tool for understanding and it’s a lot of fun!”

“I don’t ordinarily go to workshops but I had the most extraordinary experience in your workshop. It was really a life changer for me.  Something I had not dealt with for over 50 years surfaced during one of the writing exercises. You encouraged me to share my story. You had created a safe space in the group. You dealt with something so personal in a beautiful and supportive way and after class I was able to fully process it. I feel a whole new sense of freedom, releasing a memory that had been with me for life.”Mimi

“My dream is to become a novelist. I had this image and idea of how I wanted to write, but as soon as I started, the reality and self-doubt kicked in and I got stuck. That’s when I met Romi. She shared amazing exercises which were extremely helpful for me to get out of my “never stop talking mind”. I learned the importance of surrendering to whatever comes on a writing paper. She let me write in my first language, Japanese. Someone else used French as well. It was such an open hearted writing workshop and amazing to experience how people can still communicate and understand each other with writing in different languages, speaking English as second or third language. It didn’t matter, because we gathered under the same intention – We wanna write and express! It was truly a precious workshop. I got hired as a writer for a website recently thanks to my new-found confidence and the techniques Romi taught me.”

“You have helped me far more than you could possibly imagine! You helped me integrate all the information, thoughts and feelings that had arisen on my travels and with other various spiritual treatments I had received, plus the issues I had brought with me from home. You helped me develop an action plan with tools and writing that I could go home with to help me keep my new-found peace of mind. It really tied everything together for me. You gave me a good bag of gems to take home and play with. Thank you Romi for creating the space to let me be me and for listening without judgement, you made me feel safe and accepted for all that I am. Your insight is deeply appreciated.”

“It was a pleasure to meet you thank you so much for your wisdom and time to come to share your journey and expertise with us! I find writing challenging at times. Your gentle, non-judgemental approach really helped ease emotions allowing me to fully open up to the step by step workshop. I found it very valuable in terms of “writers block” identifying the cause and working through those emotions to allow creativity to blossom! 

Powerful, exciting, exhilarating. Thank you.”

“Writing from the source is a beautiful creative workshop. To go in thinking “oh I can’t write and I have nothing to say” and to find yourself writing deep and creative stories in a completely organic way. Connecting to your source is undoubtedly the way to connect to your true self. Romi has an organic way of bringing out a hidden creative side of people with her simple and ‘getting out of your mind’ exercises. Thank you for helping me unleash the hidden creativity and truth within!”

“Thank you for all of your creativity and inspiration. Your professionalism and the tools you shared to help us with the writing process have been invaluable!”

“I’ve done a lot of workshops and that was definitely the best workshop I have ever done. Thank you”

“I absolutely adored your workshop and got A LOT out of it. Your workshop not only highlighted the importance of writing but immersed us in incredibly effective writing tasks to help overcome the most common blocks to doing so. Your presentation was both engaging and entertaining and blended the perfect balance of personal and reflective teaching. We felt supported, nurtured, and totally inspired.”

“The Creative Writing workshop was extremely informative, great fun and most of all very inspiring – you have a wonderful teaching style and encouraged each one of us to tap into our own creative source. The writing exercises and your tips and wisdom were extremely informative.”

“Your creative writing workshop helped to remove some shadows that kept me from writing. Thank you”

“Pens and writing flowed resulting in a much more powerful weapon than I consciously expected to experience.”


The Write Way

Two Day Course


“Using these powerful and practical tools connected me directly to my intuition, bringing clarity and insight, and finally a decision, to something I have been struggling with for a few months. I’m elated and stunned that it could be this easy.”

“A group of eight strangers, from six different nations, with different motivations and expectations. Within minutes, Romi was able to make the group to decide to trust each other as if they had been friends for years.

In a very open atmosphere Romi led us through the course topics, of which each participant found his personal highlight to enhance his way of dealing with negative thoughts, gut decisions, journaling or the letting-go of reoccurring thoughts.

Thanks to the workshop, today I experience to have gained ‘a tool-kit’ for daily-life which is easy to handle.”
