Q Presenters: Joy Campbell and Jill Griggs

Joy Campbell and Jill Griggs met at Margaret Bowater’s dreamwork 101 course in 2012. Then, with a group of six others, they completed a series of workshops, reading, dream analysis, and peer dreamwork to complete Margaret’s Applied Dreamwork Certificate in 2013 and they are now both members of the Wellington Dreamwork Professional Development Group but their paths to dreamwork are quite different and provide them with complementary skills to run this workshop.

Joy became interested in dreams and their meaning in her early adolescence. Her professional interest in dreams grew when she trained as a Counsellor at Bethlehem Tertiary institute and also when she saw that dreamwork was a prerequisite for a Spiritual Direction training course. While working at Arohata Prison Joy ran dreamwork electives for groups of women in the Drug Treatment Unit. Joy is a counsellor and spiritual director who has recently returned to private practice following extended maternity leave.

In contrast, Jill has 25 years’ experience in strategy and transformation of businesses. Through that time, her focus on the people in the organisations has become increasingly important and Jill is now a coach and mentor and accredited as a professional mediator. Her interest in dreams began when she was troubled by recurring themes in her teens which prompted her study of dreams. She now uses dreamwork to complement her training as a coach, business counsellor and psychological astrologer when working with individual clients.
