Jennie Willett

By one of those strange co-incidences in life, Jennie Willett and I were both teachers. Well, that’s not the strange bit, only that we didn’t know each other when at the same institution but were brought together by a mutual colleague once we’d both stopped formal teaching.
Jenny had initially self-published her books Easy Ways to Lift Your Mood and Easy Ways to Build Assertiveness, Confidence and Self-Esteem. These had their origin as course resources. Working freelance and having trained as a counsellor, Jenny looked to re-issue her books, the one on Raising Your Mood being co-authored with Dr Peter Connel, a retired local GP who sadly died in early 2024.
Jenny has since added a third title to her collection – Easy Ways to Manage Difficult Neighbours. As with her previous books, Jenny hones in on practical strategies to deal with awkward and confidence depleting situations. Checklists and bitesize activities to help refocus and achieve a different perspective or insight feature strongly in all her books.
In addition to counselling, writing self-help books which are short and pertinent, Jenny also runs an art/writing group in Northwood – enabling people who are not naturally comfortable with a paintbrush or pencil to unleash their inner creativity.
A survivor in many ways, Jenny helps others do the same. Her books are only one way of doing so. If you know someone struggling with low mood or lack of confidence, I know just the books, and author, to recommend
