Janella has been in the Byron area for 12 years, servicing her clinics and facilitating one-on-one retreats helping people achieve better health, by finding the root cause of the issue; be it a physical, emotional, chemical or invisible stressor, or a combination of all.

Janella says that a lot of the feedback she gets get is that her clients know she really cares about them. ‘I make this confusing business of how to achieve good health and happiness easier and more achievable – and sustainable. I don’t do what I do for any other reason than to teach and help – it’s my life’s purpose. I guess that’s what also keeps me writing. My own health struggles put me on this path, and my curiosity keeps me wanting to go deeper and learning as much as I possibly can about how to get out of the mess we’re in. On every level’.

COVID-19 wasn’t a huge issue for Janella. ‘I had decided to slow things down a bit this year anyway. A bit of a sabbatical I guess, as I wanted to focus on organising larger women’s retreats and a women’s festival for the area.’

Janella’s latest book Your 40 Day transformation (Y40DT)is her sixth book and has just become another best seller. ‘I’m thrilled that so many people are resonating with it. It’s part memoir, covering my own healing period after a miscarriage pushed me over the edge into adrenal collapse for a few years. Y40DT does not promote or suggest dieting nor feeling deprived or hangry. It’s more about gathering the information you need on the gut/brain connection and how this affects the health of our body/mind.’

Janella is in the process of preparing for WITH fest – Women In The Hinterland. This three-day retreat is happening 8–11 October in The Pocket. ‘This event is going to be just spectacular. I have gathered eight incredibly talented women who are experts at what they do, and who love to share their knowledge. We’ll start with a sound healing session on Thursday night after the opening ceremony, and finish with an outdoor vision ‘questlette’ on Sunday morning before the closing ceremony.

‘There’ll be a drumming session under the stars on Saturday night and a guided cosmic journey after. I’ll be facilitating two of the sessions. One of which will be about the four stages/rites of passage of a woman’s life – from maiden to crone. We have divine, organic vegan food by Organic Passion catering, and all of this is taking place on an organic retreat centre in The Pocket.’

The full program, from October 8–11, is on her webpage www.janellapurcell.com.
