years ago, I was in an executive position - at 47 years of age I guess
you could say I had made it to the top! However this was not bringing
me great joy. I then started working with Jessica Rose. Her powerful
teaching and wonderful support enabled me to profoundly change my life
- much to the benefit of my health and happiness and to that of those
around me. Along with me, there are many people around Canberra and
Sydney who have been empowered in their lives by Jessica's skills as
a teacher, facilitator, counsellor and friend.
Mike Taverner, Director, Taverner Minds - Trainers and Consultants
to Rural Industries.
Jessica is a powerful facilitator and educator.
To experience her clarity, skill and vision is an exhilarating, life
changing experience. The life skills she imparted to me at one of her
courses over six years ago are as relevant today as they were then and
have been instrumental in improving the quality of my life.
Wayne Lazarides, Managing Director - Advertising company, Sydney.
Jessica Rose assisted me to see what it was possible to achieve by making
real connections with those around me. I find that having a better understanding
of myself assists me to provide better leadership within my work team.
For me and for others, Jessica provides a judgement-free, warm environment
to examine our motives and behaviour patterns, with a view to making
choices that enrich our lives and enable us to make a contribution where
Deirdre Russack, Australian Public Service Manager.
I am an information technology consultant, mainly working with government
agencies. I have done a few of Jessica's courses and have found her
to be a committed, down to earth and inspiring teacher. She teaches
with love and compassion and draws on her personal experiences to reinforce
her messages. From the courses, I have learned a lot about me, what
makes me tick and what stops me from achieving my full potential. I
am now much happier with my life and have better relationships with
my family and friends. Thank you Jessica.
Chris Farrelley, IT Manager.
Jessica Rose has a rare ability to be with another individual. Her concentration
and focus is total and she is insightful and affirming. When I have
felt down and unable to continue, I know that Jessica has the skill
to help me reconnect with my strengths, talents and courage. I have
gained much from watching Jessica work with others. I see people who
are desolate at the beginning of a conversation, move away with a sense
of worth and wellbeing. I have found Jessica to be an inspired teacher
and a clear and compassionate therapist and group leader.
Keren Griffith, Therapist and Teacher.
The work I have done with Jessica Rose over the past few years has completely
transformed my life. I have come to know and value myself. I now live
my life with passion and purpose. Jessica is one of the most loving
and accepting people I know. She works with great compassion, wisdom
and understanding. Jessica truly knows herself and values herself highly
and this allows her to be with people authentically and lovingly.
Michelle Driscoll, Masseuse and Artist.
The success of a journey reflects in large measure the quality and experience
of the guide, and the consequent growth in those who receive the guidance.
Over the past five years, under Jessica's guidance, I have been nudged
and drawn gently along my own trail, learning who I am, and about my
relationships with others, while continuing to grow. Only in hindsight
can I really appreciate how far I have travelled, and the importance
of my guide on the journey.
Graham Ross, Biologist and Editor.
Jessica is a quietly powerful woman who since 1997 has guided and supported
me on my journey to discover the 'real' me. With her enormously generous
spirit, her insight, honesty, clarity, her abundant love and willingness
to share her own journey, she has gently helped me to discover my inner
beauty and that most precious gift of all - belief in myself.
Carole Ross, Mediator and Human Resources Consultant.
Jessica Rose's courses have enhanced, transformed even, my life in relationship
with my husband, family, friends and myself. I see things differently.
I do things differently. Jessica Rose is a teacher, friend, inspiration
and role model. I give thanks for Jessica!
Faye Thornhill. Systems Analyst/Programmer.
This kind of work is unique and special. It offers us a rare opportunity
to take the time to focus on and learn about ourselves which is something
we don't often seem to do. The courses allow us to see more clearly
where we have come from and they give more direction to where we are
heading. Jessica Rose and her excellent support team provide a caring
and nurturing environment for this incredible work to happen. Jessica
is a wonderful facilitator and she gives you the tools to continue healing
yourself long after the course has finished. The work is fun as well
as challenging but the results are well worth it. It opens you up to
yourself and others and simply changes your life. I would not have missed
this for the world.
Jeff Evans, Composer and Musician.
Looking back at my life prior to doing my first Crossoads course with
Jessica, makes me very conscious of and extremely grateful for the huge
changes I've made, both within myself and in my circumstances. My life
now is truly delightful. I feel alive and vibrant and connected to the
world in a way that was totally unfamiliar to me in my past. I am now
doing the work I love and am surrounded by gorgeous people in a beautiful
city and I know in my heart I can deal with anything that comes along.
I have loved sharing this journey with Jessica. She is wise, intuitive,
intelligent, loving, gentle and a powerful teacher. A mentor who walks
the talk and engenders amazing trust. When I started working with Jessica,
I was a Senior IT Project Manager. As a consequence of doing the courses,
I ventured into consulting. I then finally took the plunge and created
my own business, doing what I really love.
Louise Mckay, Dog Trainer and Behavioural Therapist.
I thought there had to be something more to life. I was caught up in
how everybody else wanted me to be. I didn't know how I wanted to be
and I hadn't thought it was important. I started the Crossroads courses
in 1996 - a journey back to myself. Jessica and her team listened and
understood, even when I didn't understand myself. They taught me the
skills to heal myself and showed me a new way of being. I now have the
strength to be myself and experience the freedom and joy this brings.
I now have real friendships and the confidence to design my life the
way I want it to be. Jessica is intuitive, inspirational, gentle, loving
and generous. She accepts you as you are and provides the framework
which makes it possible to accept yourself and find your strength. Her
courses are challenging, insightful and life changing. Jessica holds
a safe place for you to do the healing you are ready to do.
Cate Adams, Graphic Artist.
I have known Jessica for seven years and am still impressed by her compassion
and honesty. Jessica is an insightful teacher and counsellor and a woman
of great integrity. She is a very caring and generous person who lives
and breathes what she teaches. She is always open to learning from her
associates, friends, teachers and clients. She has the ability to empower
and support people to look within themselves for the answers they need
to enrich their lives. I have learnt to trust my intuition and my abilities.
I have discovered that I am a leader and that if I honour and trust
myself and others, then people will give from the very depths of their
being to achieve the needs of the moment.
Bev Tunks, Community Worker and Graphic Designer.
During the last seven years I have known and worked with Jessica Rose
in a variety of roles - as a teacher, an advisor, a leader and as a
friend. The powerful understanding and insight Jessica brought to the
courses she conducted allowed me to come to an inner depth of discovery
about myself. That discovery opened new, enriching pathways for me.
Jessica's skill, gentleness and support is abounding. Through Jessica's
guidance and grounded wisdom I gained much peace and joy and freedom
and I continue to find that balance in my life.
(The Late) Julia Collins RN. RM. BN.
I did Jessica's courses at a time in my life when I was very unsettled
- a time I think of as not being my 'best self.' Those courses have
strengthened my sense of self, my self confidence and my inner being.
Through Jessica's guidance I have faced and dealt with some of the dragons
that used to affect my life and while I suspect there are more sleeping
dragons that are likely to wake up, I now have resources to handle life
issues that I never previously had. And I can always go back and repeat
the courses. Jessica teaches in a very sensitive, intuitive and caring
way. She is totally committed to helping people develop their life potential
and I recommend her course to anyone with such an interest.
Helen Sims, Senior Officer ACT Public Service.
