Beyond Recovery founder, Jacqueline Hollows, is a new regular contributor to InsideTime – the monthly newspaper for prison residents. She is writing about the potential of every human being to find freedom of mind for the ‘Comment’ section of the newspaper each month.

Jaqueline, who is also writing a book about her life journey to date, writes from the heart. She shares the inspirational stories of people with whom she and the Beyond Recovery team have worked during their Group sessions at HMP Onley, Nottingham, Rye Hill and Styal.  Many hundreds of people have been touched by their approach to helping people in prison uncover their innate mental health over the last five years. Their unique way of teaching is based on a paradigm called ‘The Three Principles.

Freedom of mind

For InsideTime’s May issue, Jacqueline’s piece is titled: ‘Finding Freedom Inside’. She talks about the ability of people to rediscover their healthy selves through the power of thought. You can read the article in full here.

Jacqueline’s second article is called ‘Mind Power’. It speaks of the basic human desire to find peace of mind and how changing the way we think can change the way we see our circumstances. To view in full, click here.

For the July issue, Jacqueline wrote ‘Where do feelings come from’ – a piece in which she asks the reader to consider that our feelings are a result of our thoughts, coloured by our mindset in the moment. Click here to read it.

Since InsideTime published Jacqueline’s articles, the Beyond Recovery team has received requests for Beyond Activity Packs from people in various prisons across the UK. To help support those who are currently locked in their cells for up to 23 hours a day due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the team produces a new 12-page activity pack each week

Jacqueline said: “I’m honoured to be a contributor for InsideTime. It’s such a valuable publication, both for people in prison and for their relatives, who can read it online. As a voice for residents in British prisons, more than 60,000 copies of each issue are distributed free of charge, so I feel honoured to be contributing to its content. It will be very gratifying if my words help even a few members of the prison population who are in need of comfort or support.”
