Work together

Liminal Play convenes meaningful conversations that might not happen otherwise, opening space for reflective enquiry in the midst of busy and challenging times.  

Whether one to one coaching or within teams, these conversations centre on awareness-based systems practices, helping you:

  • Step back and see the bigger picture
  • Build awareness of self and system
  • Engage with diverse perspectives
  • Develop the capacity to listen deeply to the present moment
  • Tap into insights beyond the limits of language using mapping, metaphor and play (a whole brain approach)
  • Better understand connections, relationships and consequences

Having recently relocated from London to Melbourne, I now offer in-person services within Australia and New Zealand, as well as continuing online work with clients across the English-speaking world.

I could do this again and again

"It is an approach that is rich in content, accommodating as an methodology, elicits critical thinking effortlessly, and a lot of fun! As an educator, it was intriguing to see how one can weave in the 21st Century skills of collaboration, critical thinking, communication and team work."

A light activity with deep impact

"If you are curious about how playing with purpose might help you and your team, I encourage you to connect with Joanna. Her skilful facilitation and insight made a light activity have deep impact - and she is just an all-round incredible human."

Finding hidden strength in imperfection

“The series of sessions helped me reassess my approach to work and life, and changed very fundamental aspects in my perception of myself and the environment…It was aimed at a certain goal in my career and, on top of achieving it, unveiled some bigger things… I am savouring the change, and I am curious about more results of these changes that will emerge with time.”

Put me at ease with what I was feeling

"Joanna’s questioning enabled me to really open up and get to the root cause of what I perceived was my problem. The journey over the three months we worked together has put me in a more confident place with my work and in a better place to deal with potential challenges that lie ahead."

A terrific experience

Not everyone in the team is ‘into’ LEGO, so there was a certain amount of wondering as to how this would all work! Jo quickly put us at ease and invited us not just to learn about the activity, but to experience it through participation. The impact was twofold – we learnt a new skill that we can use to help our residents explore their own life-stories, values, and interests; and we found it a valuable team-building exercise, allowing us to name and explore the elements of our work, life, and family that we value so much. I happily recommend the training and Jo’s approach as a trainer.

Who is this for?

The people I work with are open-minded and desire to make their meaningful difference. Their organisations are forward-looking and seek to be a force for good – for people and the planet. 

No other experience is required.

Where do I work?

Having relocated to Melbourne, my services are now primarily oriented towards the Australasian time zones. 

If you are interested in online or in-person facilitation outside of this region, please contact me so we can determine what is practical in the current circumstances.
