Customer Reviews

Since using A Journal to Happiness I have found ways of incorporating journaling into my daily routine; helping me to feel revived the next day as I have documented even the most simplest of thoughts and personal successes.
 As part of my client programmes, I regularly refer to the benefits of journaling and reflection and provide my clients their very own Journal to Happiness when they onboard with me. What stands out about this journal is the guidance it offers to the importance of mindset, visualisation, laughter, happiness, self-reflection and various exercises to tap into how you are feeling at a given point. - Nico Jones - Clarity & Empowerment Coach, Light Up & Live

I’d wanted to keep a journal but I never kept it up.  A friend sent me one in January 2021 and it was just what I needed.  The concepts are familiar but somehow it just brought it all together.  I am in remission from PTSD and the positive thinking, the structure, the small steps just brought it all together. Your journal has made a massive difference.  I am carrying on and also reviewing my previous journal each day, it’s great to read it.  I am happier, I love writing my journal and am loving the book which I am digesting slowly.  I celebrate every small step and am about to buy one for my niece. 
It’s wonderful. Thanks a million 
- Kate Dodson

It's been so helpful. It's all about centring yourself, slowing down and thinking about what's important in your life. I can't recommend in highly enough - Kara Tointon, Actress


I’ve thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted from using the journal on a daily basis. It’s helped me in focusing on things that are important to me, but also in reflecting on how far I’ve managed to progress in certain areas. I plan to continue to use it. Other models don’t compare!!
- Maureen Hamill


The Way of the Tortoise - a Journal to Happiness is underpinned by psychological theory and all the things I would say to my clients. I am completely in awe of this book; how well put together it is, and everything that it covers. It’s something that I know I would use and I know it’s something that my clients would find so helpful. I recommend this book. - Kelly Watkins, Forensic Psychologist and CBT Therapist. 


I have just completed the first 4 months and have ordered the next 2 journals. I’ve fallen in love with journaling and can’t imagine not journaling now. It’s really like having a secret little friend. It had definitely calmed me and helped me to organise my thoughts and aspirations. Thank you. Xxx - Catherine Hastie

Hi, I recently bought the Journal to Happiness for my Goddaughter who is recovering from mental ill health. She is delighted. The book's format follows the structure of therapy she's recently completed and she says it's the perfect next step. Her mother is so thrilled she placed an order for another one this morning and I will be for my own daughter too. Thank you so much for this wonderful product. It's made a world of difference  – J.G.


Hi Guys, I would just like to say Thank you for sending out my order! I absolutely love it and really appreciate it how lovely it all is. I’m sure it will help me to de clutter some of my constant and busy mind, it’s never very silent so I am hoping to find some calm with The Way of the Tortoise. Thank you so much - Donna Yorke


I'm already seeing a difference, the pace and encouragement through the journal is so good and perfect for my needs, it can be adapted so easily for anyone, I love my journal, thank you x - Aud Jones


I came upon your website via Facebook & decided to treat myself to the bundle. I could not be happier, what a lovely idea you have had and I am sure that it has helped many people. I am looking forward to starting my slow steady journey. Keep up the great work & thank you for all that you are doing. Stay safe - Marie Bedford


First up can I say a huge thank you! My lovely Mum bought me the Happiness Bundle. It is without a doubt one of the loveliest gifts I've ever received. I love it! - Carrie Gibbs 

I wanted to let you know how much I have gained from journalling. I am recently trained as a mindfulness teacher but wanted to try the journal to see if it was something I could recommend to clients. I found parts of the journal difficult yet self revealing. It has helped me more than I thought it ever could - thank you - Julie Perrigo


I’ve bought your journal and am approaching it very slowly. Reading a passage morning and night at the moment so not actually journaling yet. However, it already has me thinking and noticing what I am doing. Looking forward to journaling -Barbara Lee


Your journal is brilliant. Although I've only been using it for 10 days I do feel better. I will be buying another when it runs out - Louise Runnacles

I'm only 3 days into doing my journal but I feel it's already making a difference and slowly helping me to think differently Sarah Hawkins


Journalling became a big part of my life many years ago, it has lifted me out of negative things and had given me so much strength. There was days I could have given up. When I read back I’m amazed how far I have come.Take care and all the very best to you both - Jacqueline Williams

Hello Klaus, I received your journal today. In these very troubled times this has come to me like a beautiful ray of sunshine and I wanted to thank you. What I have read is both uplifting and reaffirming that life is beautiful and although there are always going to be tough times just believe in how amazing we all are as human beings and be grateful for the now. Thank you - Jane Russell

I journal each morning and sometimes at night, sometimes a few words sometimes a paragraph. It gives a great release, and reminds me of the person I truly am and where I am going. I also write my gratitudes and give love and thanks for all the good in my life. I sit quiet and listen to my thinking and I let go of the thoughts with love, that do not belong to me. Thank you - Jacqueline Williams

Love love love my journal! - Lisa Rimmer


My son is very down after losing his best friend a few weeks ago. I’m really hoping this book will help him a little along the way. Thank you - Helen Clayfield

I have been procrastinating over many things in my life for a long time and I want a new fresh start. Difficult times we are all facing now, but I want to feel that happiness, organised me again! Hope you have a fabulous day and thank you - Debbie Payne


My journal arrived yesterday, it is a lovely book and my journey begun this morning, I will put my thoughts and targets down for each day. Stay safe - Lynda Scully


I have the journal and hamper and am using them both together. In this trying time - I have 2 children at home and I am working nights in a care home - I find it very helpful in when I feel down. Please stay safe and remember the way of the tortoise - Susan Green

Have just received my journal and I'm very happy with it! Good value for money and especially soothing during these difficult times. Well done x - Ilona Mueller


Love this journal - Caroline Young


Great book! - Joy Guthrie


Enjoying my journal - it certainly is a comfort during these tough times x - Tracey Pinfield


No question this is the best purchase I've made in a few years. I shopped around for a new journal and went for this (& I have to be honest) it's because I loved the colour! But inside the beautiful design it's really rather brilliant. Down to earth, practical tips and everything is explained very nicely. Can't recommend highly enough - C. Massett

This is such a beautiful thing. The tone is light, supportive, & friendly & I love the philosophy of taking small steps. Simple structure, nicely laid out & most importantly it's encouraging me to journal everyday which lifts my mood. Love it! - Sam Harrison
