Celebrations & Gratitude for October

Welcome to our quieteer celebration & gratitude messages for October. Thank you for being part of QC. This work feels so important for us all, and we’re grateful to be doing it with you by our side.

Messages of Gratitude

💫  There are two people who are always happy and smiling when they walk through the doors at the Hayle meet up. I am so grateful for their help and support. With a welcoming smile, Chris ensures we all feel comfortable having a hot drink with our biscuits and Hannah has such a lovely way of helping new members feel welcomed and at ease. I have witnessed Hannah grow in confidence over the past year, and am delighted that we have such a warm and safe feeling space, thanks to Hannah and Chris. – Michele

💫  What I’d like to celebrate is the learning from my time with QC and integrating it into offering the “Embracing the Quiet” home ed group for young people. This is a continued stretch for me and is an area I am still learning in. I am so grateful to be able to have a community of people to take guidance, inspiration and support from as I continue to embark on this. The great news is that every young person from the first block of sessions has signed up for next half-term, so I’m glad they want to come back! If I were to summarise my learning so far on this, it would be to have eyes and ears for the quiet impact this quiet space has for these lovely young people and I’m curious to learn more about what quiet impact it might be having on me that I might not have noticed yet. – Vicky

💫  I’d like to say thank you for the Redruth group being always so welcoming of each other and enjoying sharing their particular interests and skills – Rose

💫  I’m feeling grateful for Ellie for setting up a Weekly Quiet MeetUp in Liskeard and making this our first volunteer-led group. She’s been amazing! She’s demonstrated a strong willingness to get involved and share our mission, which has included doing a newspaper interview and attending a social prescribers event on behalf of QC. Thank you Ellie! – Stacie

💫  I’m grateful for Lisa. At any one time, Lisa is coaching the most quieteers of all of us coaches and I know that she offers a fantastic coaching experience. She also makes it super easy for us to track what’s happening with her coachees. I also appreciate Lisa’s courage and commitment to her own personal development, attending triad coaching practice, requesting peer supervision when something needs exploring, and looking at options when a coachee doesn’t feel like a good fit. – Hayley


Celebrating Quieteers

⭐️  Leonie from our Falmouth group has not only stretched her comfort zone, but made strides in connecting with others. With a soft manner, Leonie quietly connects with all members, including any new members who join the group, helping them to feel quietly welcomed without any undue attention. Leonie has also begun sea swimming with a group, and participating in other local activities. I would like to celebrate and acknowledge how wonderful you are to have taken these comfort zone stretches, and as we celebrate you, I hope you recognise this as the achievement it is and celebrate yourself. Well done Leonie. – Michele

⭐️  A quieteer to celebrate is Emily. I’ve been really enjoying reading about her running the Blue Health Writing Workshops and what a success they have been! I love how Emily has brought two areas of expertise together to create a workshop that has clearly been enjoyable and impactful for its participants – evidenced in the feedback and repeat workshops. It’s really inspiring to see Emily’s work out in the world and the impact she is having.  – Vicky

⭐️  I’d like to celebrate Michele for balancing my slow and reflective way of being with her ‘let’s get it done’ attitude, keeping us on track, and for being someone that often poses a question or shares a perspective that challenges my thinking and approach. – Hayley

⭐️  I would like to celebrate Esther this month. She’s worked so hard over the last 4 years or so to understand herself more and to grow in self-acceptance and confidence. She’s grown and healed so much already, and it’s been a joy to see her willingness to try new things, to acknowledge her feelings, and meet her needs. Esther’s an inspiration and always brings lightness and a playfulness wherever she goes – Stacie


  • Hayley Stanton

    Hi, I’m Hayley - the original quieteer. I, too, identify as a quiet person. I’m naturally a highly sensitive introvert and I love and appreciate my quiet strengths now, but I spent much of my life not feeling good enough and experiencing social anxiety. I missed so many opportunities because I was afraid of being judged harshly, criticised and rejected – and because I doubted that I had the ‘right’ personality to succeed. Quiet Connections exists in part because I had a fantastic coach who helped me to work through old patterns of keeping myself small and hidden so that I could show up and be seen to play my part in creating the more connected, curious and compassionate world that I dream of. Now, I’m passionate about helping quiet people discover their unique qualities, gifts, passions and experiences and explore how best to use these to express themselves more authentically and contribute to the world in a way that works with their quieter or more sensitive nature. Get to know me here.
