Judi believes lack of confidence and procrastination are the two biggest obstacles we face as writers. She says,
Two decades of running workshops has given me a lot of understanding of how we block our own creativity. So I work with the conscious and the unconscious mind, enabling clients to abandon self-doubt and to access a wealth of creative possibilities. Building confidence is key. Which often means switching off your conscious logical part of the brain and accessing ‘the zone’ where all things are possible.
