Do the inner voices in your head tell you minute by minute that you are not good enough and not worth it? Mine did, for a very many years. Do you spend most of your days fighting to be perfect so that someone will tell you that you have done well, you are so brilliant, and to follow that with giving you the recognition and even reward that you have been yearning for all of your life – to feel worth it?
Is your heart at constant loggerheads with your head about how you can be seen, considered and included:
This thought pattern of not being good enough is such a destructive process because it only brings you down, further and further until you really see no self-worth at all. Yet you have so much to offer, that is why people ask you all the time. You are so liked, that is why you have so many friends.
How does that actually make you feel … a little uncomfortable? Well that is what I want for you – to be someone with confidence and a sparkle all over because they are sure of themselves. And they know that they are good enough! That they are worth it worth it worth it!
I want to help you to walk away from coaching with me feeling like you finally and truly believe in yourself. Worth it for you, you will be worth it for everyone else in your path.
Joy challenges me to think about and approach things from angles that I would have before - both in my personal and professional capacity. I really look forward to our sessions to see what we are going to uncover next! I really love our time together
Joy allows a person to have a new perspective on dealing with problems - this has truly helped me in more ways than you can imagine
Joy has been an absolute ‘joy’ to have as a coach. She is insightful, motivational and spiritual. She thinks out the box and always makes me consider what the route or reason of every action or reaction is. She has made me do many lists about things that might seem obvious but when you have to write them down and reflect on it, it makes so much sense! Joy quickly understood me and what made me tick. We then logically set about improving what needed to be worked on and praising and increasing my self-esteem for what didn’t need to be changed or adjusted. This is a journey not a destination but so far, the journey has been pure joy. I really look forward to our sessions every 2 weeks! And so, do Kate and William (the staffies) that sit on or around Joy throughout my sessions!
I have been on a journey with Joy for just over 4 months and without sounding cliched "it's been a Joy". I knew a lot (like most of us do), the practical, what should be done. I found myself stuck in all the knowledge, not able to move on anything, not even the smallest thing. Joy very patiently worked with me in designing a life that was suddenly filled with possibilities, big and small. And fewer excuses. She held me accountable for what I declared and called me on the things I slipped on. She nudged, coaxed and encouraged positive thoughts and intentions. I have come to realise that I have the potential to create what I want in a declaration and that I am worth it. If I am not happy and content with myself and my life, I cannot be all that for anyone else, especially my girls. I have learnt about clear boundaries and not taking on others stuff. Being able to define what is mine and what isn't, what is controllable and what isn't. How to step back from a situation or conversation and see how it could be different depending on my own actions, reactions and words. I have perfected lists. I see the light. I am enough. All this because of Joy who I trust, respect and admire greatly. Thank you, Joy
I know Joy through both personal coaching and professional training. She is an extremely positive, caring, engaging and observing person. Already during our first session she flawlessly managed to filter and consolidate the attention points into a clear insightful overview! I very much enjoy working with Joy as she is a strong listener and helps to come up with simple yet effective solutions. During the professional trainings Joy manages to create an interactive atmosphere in which people at all levels are encouraged to engage and share. She is motivational and ensures transfer of her as well as well as sharing of participant knowledge and skills. Thank you.
I’ve just started my sessions with Joy and so far have found them really helpful in identifying what’s important to me and setting goals for myself. I love Joy’s pragmatic approach and have found her easy to chat and open up to.
For years I’ve heard nothing but praise from colleagues about Joy’s ability to manage time, staff and lead a business so when the opportunity came up to have Joy as a life coach, it was not one I could pass up. As a relatively new client service director, my goal when engaging with Joy was to gain as much knowledge as I could about the specifics of my job role. Within a few short sessions though, I received so much more. Joy has given me perspective on my personal and professional life, helping me organise and prioritise the things I would like to achieve as well as mapping out a way to get there. Thank you, Joy!
We all know somebody who is a coach. Coaches seem to be everywhere and how do you chose the right one? I first met Joy close to 20 years ago! Even then she was a younger version of the most organised person in the room! We reconnected this year through one of her YouTube videos. I seem to organise my life on the fly & I was at first skeptical of how Joy could add value to my completely chaotic lifestyle… Kids, my own business, me… Joy has a way where she somehow uniquely tailors your path, knowing where you want to be & gently guides you to it without you really realizing how it happened. Revisiting my goals recently, it was a bit of an eyeopener to realise that I had in fact achieved much of what I set out to do. We are now building on this further for next year.
Working with Joy is energizing. She has been a great sounding board, keeping me on track and getting me to think about things from a different perspective. Joy is passionate about what she does, and it’s infectious which is exactly what I need to keep me inspired.
My journey into the Head of Client Service space was pretty daunting to say the least. Joy has helped make the transition into the role much easier for me, her guidance has been invaluable and her strong, yet compassionate manner is motivating. Joy has showed me how to be more confident, not only in my role at work but also in my personal life. Decision making has become less emotional and far more rationale, leadership has become more of a goal and less of a challenge. I am super grateful to Joy for showing me that anything is achievable with the right attitude, plan and of course, Leadership Coach.
Sessions with Joy enabled me to stop, assess, organise and refocus what is most important to me these days, TIME. So often it is wasted and given away to the wrong causes. I now have clarity and even better – MORE TIME! If it wasn’t for the dedicated sessions with Joy, I would still be complaining I never have any TIME. I am truly inspired and motivated by your mind-set and enthusiasm to get more out of life Joy. I look forward to growing further with you.
Your individual given to each of us has really helped in making us all feel comfortable and included. The lessons learnt and taught are easy enough for us to take and implement immediately.
I have recently been appointed to a leadership position at work, and wanted to tackle it head on with the confidence and strength it requires. Joy was the perfect person to guide me and give me the boost I needed for this job.
Working with Joy over the last year has given me the support & insights that I needed over a very difficult personal & professional time in a manner that I have not experienced before. She has understood & unpacked emotions that I would of otherwise not responded to with such an open heart and mind. I look forward to our discussions and feel safe & comfortable sharing my journey with her.
Joy is, as her name suggests, an absolute joy to work with - smart, kind, authentic and brilliant at what she does. Her insight and intuition become powerful guides in identifying where you are, and what you need to do to be where you want to be. In the short time I have worked with Joy, I have seen a fundamental shift in how I view myself, how I deal with challenges and how I tackle big and small goals. I have overcome certain struggles, embraced exciting new opportunities, and improved a variety of things, all of which have had a big impact on my life. Whether you want to follow your dreams, raise your performance or change your life, Joy is an incredible coach capable of bringing the very best out in you.
I started my coaching journey with Joy after following her vlog. What I find invaluable is her ability to see the bigger picture – I tend to always want to solve a problem NOW, and then she takes me back to the bigger picture, which inevitably solves the problem, but so much more than just that one problem. I went to her to seek business advise but have benefitted equally in my personal life. I will recommend walking the Joy Journey to anyone!
Joy really helped us to find solutions and guided us in being great leaders, really "Leading from the inside out". Joy gave us key actions that have really resulted in positive change & results in our Leadership Team.
Joy has the innate ability to break down and analyze a situation, challenge or task in a way that it makes it manageable and workable. She declutters the info and makes you see the workable plan. I have had some incredible breakthrough moments in my sessions that have literally been life and career changing. The results, in my case and with my unique situation, were literally instant when the penny dropped. The solution revealed itself under Joy’s guidance. I fully trust her input and judgement and that’s what a life coach should be for you to get the best out of you.
Working with Joy has provided such insight and a different perspective to how I look at life as well as my work. Being somewhat of a pessimist the sense of purpose & clarity that her coaching has provided has been invaluable in my growth. Sometimes her thoughts will shed light, sometimes steer, sometimes even disagree and that’s okay, at the end of the day she is all about growing people and having worked with her both in coaching and professional level I feel I am testament to her skills, passion & care for this calling in life.
I worked with Joy a couple of years back and already then I gained immense skills and knowledge from her leadership. When she approached me recently, I was excited to learn more and share the learning with my team at Penquin. The feedback from my team was amazing. They all felt empowered, knowledgeable and armed to be stronger leaders in the business. My experience has been exactly the same. Joy knows business and people and she understands how to help them know what they want and what they need to do to get there. It’s difficult to convey how much I respect and how much I revere her as a leader in just a few sentences, but I can say that working with her then and now her has been invaluable to me and my business. I look forward to seeing more amazing work from you in the future.
I had worked with Joy in the past, and was really impressed with her calm, friendly but confident and strong work ethic. Work and stress seem to be easy for Joy. A year or so later I was in a position where I really needed to grow and was searching the internet for a mentor. I bumped into Joy at a coffee shop and immediately asked if she would consider being a mentor to me. From then, I cannot thank Joy enough. She has pushed me to explore, and develop in areas that I had no confidence in. Her work with me so far have really made a difference, and I look forward to working with Joy and growing even more! I cannot recommend Joy enough; an absolute god send!
Joy has an incredible ability to get people to open up and be honest with themselves. Joy is able to create a trusting environment for Clients.
Joy has been given a blank slate to start off with on the first day we met, with the objective of reinventing myself and getting me to be more of a new and improved ME! A huge challenge, but she was able to get down to the core of me very quickly, and she was able to expose deep insights into the realities of "Who am I?" What influences my thought patterns? and how a mind shift change impacts the rest of what lies ahead. By better understanding myself, and my perceived value vs my actual self-worth, I am challenged by her on how this breakthrough thinking can bring about the change I needed. By dealing with my baggage, Joy opened my internal limitations which I unconsciously set for myself, to break those limits and so have started a new journey on both personal and business levels. We have come far in a relatively short period of time and looking forward to continuing on this road to self-improvement and building on becoming ME, with Joy Thank you for everything thus far and the impact you have had. Without your insights I would not have challenged myself to the level of starting my new business venture. Look forward to now move into the business coaching as well.
My main goal was to leave SA and start a new life in another country. Joy has helped me plan and execute the important items to achieve my dreams not only in the above but many other areas. She has also given me the encouragement to push myself beyond my comfort zone and make significant changes in my day to day routine which has made me a lot more confident and happy. This has empowered me to tackle situations I would normally avoid. I have recommended Joy's help to others who have taken my advice and she is currently coaching them and I can see a noticeable difference in attitude. I would recommend Joy if you are needing some guidance or assistance in organizing your life in any area. Thank you, Joy.
I was really grateful to have four sessions with Joy, shortly after I started a new position which was both demanding and stressful, and also comes with a boss who does not have the faith that I can actually manage this task. Joy gave me simple yet brilliant and effective techniques to manage said boss’s questions and challenges, and to stand up for myself when I know I’m right about something. I’d love to do more coaching with her, and probably will in future, and I’m grateful that there is a Facebook page and website to consult for now. It's been a pleasure, and I look forward to picking this up again one day.
I would love more of these sessions. They are a confidence boost, a mind stimulant and are character building. Loved it!
Thank you so much. The entire session was so important and much needed. I honestly can't thank you enough
