Accredited Girls Journeying Together Facilitator

Girls Journeying Together groups: Horsham
My name is Sara and I live with my husband, teenage daughter and ragdoll cat near Horsham. I am passionate about supporting young people and offer a fun, safe space where girls can find out more about growing up.
I’ve worked with young people throughout my career and love being in their company, but being a young person in today’s world can be especially challenging. Girls might find they are struggling with anything from school and friendships to the highs and lows of emotions and their changing bodies, and anything else in between.
Girl’s Journeying Together groups meet once a month, for a year, and the group goes a long way to help girls navigate these exciting but turbulent times. Whilst families offer as much love and support as they can, sometimes having a fun group to come and meet other girls who feel the same way, can be liberating. It’s a good chance to talk about what it feels like, know that they are not on their own, and build good habits for the future. Your daughter will carry the journey she makes in Girls Journeying Together for the rest of her life and hopefully make some lovely friendships along the way.
Having a daughter of my own, has deepened my understanding of a girl’s place in this world. It’s important that girls have a voice, feel proud of who they are and start to discover their true identity. Running Girls Journeying Together groups makes me so excited about ‘walking alongside’ these girls of today.
Besides running Girls Journeying Together groups, I also run one day workshops for girls and 3 hour workshops for dads. I’m also a Rethink Period Ambassador and support schools to become period friendly through the Real Period Project. I am also the UK Coordinator for The Rite Journey, a rites of passage school curriculum for year 9 boys and girls.
I look forward to meeting you and your daughter for a free taster session soon.
