Through her guidance, I met my goals
“I began coaching with Patricia when I wanted to start a whole new chapter in my life. I wanted to launch a class which would require that I go in front of an entire group of people and talk for over an hour… by myself – I was terrified!! I had never done anything like it before and have been known to start things and not bring them to completion. I wanted this but wasn’t sure I could muster the courage. Then I started coaching with Patricia. We spoke weekly and she helped me lay out my goals and get to the bottom of my fear… I looked forward to these calls. Each week, I worked towards the goals we set and did my “homework” to help me weed through the muck of fear and what was holding me back. Through her guidance, I met my goals, I launched that class and am happy to say it was a great success! More importantly, I got to really understand myself better, define my goals and achieve them. There is no greater feeling. I recommend Patricia Joy to anyone looking to add more JOY into their life! If you want to reach your goals or set new ones, Patricia can help you get where you never knew you could go!”
I continue life-coaching sessions with her via Skype after moving out of state
Working with Patricia completely altered my future and in many ways gave me a reason to continue choosing life. I met Patricia at one of the lowest points in my life (after attending an in-residence military trauma rehabilitation program) and she helped me work through healing the toughest parts of trauma and loss of a career. I felt a stronger and safer connection with Patricia than with most of the psychologists and trauma therapists I also worked with. I have never felt judged by her or that I have exhausted her willingness to listen and work through the same stuff (triggers of trauma) over and over again. We continue to revisit what feels like permanent scars of trauma and battle PTSD together. We also work on future goals and finding happiness in living in the moment. Patricia’s guidance has been so effective in helping me shift and refocus my perspective that I continue life-coaching sessions with her via Skype after moving out of state.
Patricia helped me rediscover and step into the power within which gave me the confidence to attend significant life events such as weddings (my own included), compete in world-level sporting competitions, graduations, and reunions these past three years. I am forever thankful for the safe space that Patricia created and continues to hold so that I may continue to not only heal but also grow as a person. I am now striving towards unlimited happiness and becoming the best version of myself.
She is an empathic healer
So much of my journey has been focused on why things happened and why I react so “knee-jerk” to them. Patricia helped me to re-write old stories and to live in the moment and be present. With her gentle guidance, she taught me how to focus on possibilities instead of limitations. She showed me how I can choose to love deeper, be kinder, laugh more, and stay available. She is an empathic healer, and it is undeniable.
Her loving presence is palpable
“Patricia Joy is one of the most talented coaches I have ever worked with. Her loving presence is palpable as she strategically and lovingly guided me through each session. While working with her, I discovered many things about myself and have had tremendous shifts in the way I view the world and people I interact with on a daily basis. This has translated into more happiness, ease, and grace in my life overall. If you get a chance to work with Patricia, I highly recommend taking it.”
I was blocking my own happiness
“Working with Patricia helped me to discover how I was blocking my own happiness. My pattern of putting others first kept me feeling left out and unhappy. I was more committed to other’s happiness than my own. When I realized my patterns and made the shift to commit to “ME” first, my health, well-being and relationships began to transform for the better.”
Patricia’s meditation was so simple, yet effective
I have a really active “monkey mind” and often struggle with meditation. Patricia’s meditation was so simple, yet effective that even my busy mind could focus, quiet, and enjoy the peaceful experience. After consistent use of Patricia’s guided meditation on body acceptance and compassion, I noticed less tension in my lower back and hips and I felt more relaxed and comfortable in my body. I am also gaining more overall compassion and empathy for myself with my own unique gifts and strengths as a person.
“Yoga with Patricia is pure bliss! A perfect union of body, breath, and mind. Patricia guides you through meditative yoga and in doing so brings you to a place of complete and energizing solitude. Restorative yoga with Patricia is one of my favorite ways to end the day and cleanse both body and mind of the day’s events and stressors.”
More centered, more relaxed, and happy
I have been attending yoga for a good 20 years, in the beginning with various instructors. However, since I have been attending class with Patricia, I have not had any desire to learn from anyone else. I love participating in yoga with Patricia, she is always helpful and kind in guiding us through different poses. Patricia is genuine in her care for others and wants us to all feel welcome. I always come away from class feeling more centered, more relaxed, and happy that I attended.
I love doing restorative Yoga with Patricia
I love doing restorative Yoga with Patricia. How she guides us through the various positions is easy to follow. I don’t have to know any yoga poses to participate. Just learning to breathe and relax into the various positions have not only helped to reduce any physical stress but has also helped to improve my posture.
