An inclusive space of safety, love and support for women and queer folk at all stages on their journey to and through sobriety. Daily posts and weekly live videos from Jo, talking about personal struggles and successes as well as offering information and suggestions in the live videos (taking on a coaching theme each week). All welcome who want to engage with their growth and learning, community engagement and interaction strongly encouraged, showing each other – and ourselves – radical love, forgiveness, and kindness, helping to build better lives, starting with ourselves and each other.
Suggested contribution: the price of a bottle of wine or two per month, via Patreon (www.patreon.com/jowalduck). If you’re unfamiliar with Patreon, it’s a platform which allows artists, activists and those working outside of the typical 9-5 employment sectors to collect contributions from supporters all over the world. The site deals with the change in currency, bank charges etc., and I receive a guaranteed sum of money each month. Each contributor (or Patron) can modify, suspend, or cancel their pledge (monthly payment) at any time of the month or year, for whatever reason. It’s an embodiment of the “it takes a village” idea – each member of the village contributing at their own financial level, allowing me to spend the time and energy and love it takes to hold, maintain and grow the space.
An offshoot from the Deep Duckpond, this pond exists to provide some extra support and daily accountability for those ducks who need or want it, who are navigating trickier moments in their journeys (whether the focus is on alcohol, nicotine, sugar or co-dependent behaviour …). Twice-daily posts (morning pledge, evening check-in) and weekly group zoom calls, this pond is home to a maximum of 15 ducks per calendar month, and does not roll on from month to month (although you can sign up for two/three months in a row). Paid for via PayPal (30€ a month, to email@example.com), the purpose of this pond is to create sustainable accountability and community (in conjunction with The Deep Duckpond) and gain enough momentum through the tricky moments (beginning of a new adventure, or at a moment when life events are threatening your sober journey).

As a certified life, business and sober coach, I offer life/business coaching to sober women and queer folk (or folk on an adventure towards and throughout sobriety), and specific sober coaching for those who need additional support on their sober journeys. For more information, click here.
