Jean was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and has been blessed with a variety of masters that have entered her life and illuminated a path of wisdom in front of her. Jean has her degree in business, majoring in Marketing and Psychology, studied acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and finally found her calling as a holistic coach, non-medical hypnotherapist and yoga traveler. Jean was fortunate to study her Postgraduate in Coaching and Leadership as well as complete her two year advanced hypnotherapy program. Jean continues to grow her knowledge and has completed courses in the Enneagram, Brain Profiling, Career Guidance, Leadership Embodiment and more! Jean was coached at a young age by a phenomenal mentor and personally experienced the power of hypnosis, which saved her life. Alongside these gifts, Jean has been working under her beloved Swami in the Satyananda yoga tradition for the past 10 years and she is currently pursuing her diploma in the Science of Yoga. Jean’s mission is to inspire, awaken and guide individuals to live the life they love through a variety of holistic processes that create deep sustainable change, life balance and internal happiness. Jean has recently conducted a research project at a school where the focus was on incorporating a holistic coaching and a yoga program to decrease stress, improve life balance and develop awareness. The results were incredible and the research is currently in the publishing pipeline. Alongside working with youth, schools and individuals, Jean works within the corporate space and helps provide stress release processes, balance and changing the space from dysfunctional to positive performance.
