My journey with Jean Rodrigues was nothing short of life chaning. It started a year ago when I was in a very volatile tumultuous place in my life, aswell as extremely skeptical of coaching and what it promised to offer. Needless to say we commenced with our sessions and I soon started seeing phenomenal results in my daily life. I learnt how to regroup, centre myself, apply mini coaching tools and yes even a bit of meditation and self gratitude which was amazing considering where I started off and yes, I have Jean to thank for this, she showed such care, she’s extremely patient, humble and oh so well versed in her field. She is a brilliant judge of character and is very intune with the people she comes into contact with. I would certainly recomend her as a coach (and have) to many as she truly is the heart of coaching. Not only has she helped me transform my career but she has also had a large impact on me in my personal capacity. She truly is a God sent and was born for this role . Signing off now as a changed strong, confident, humble, grateful mom, wife, women, employee and friend …. Thankyou to Jean for who she is and the impact she has had thereof! , Standard Bank employee – Coaching

I feel that the first session of hypnotherapy was amazing. Jean has an amazing sense of calmness, which eludes in her sessions. I felt it was easy to gain the trust I needed to embark on this journey with myself. I liked the techniques used in the session as it also allowed for openness and connection. Jean also has amazing empathy skills, which allowed me to feel connected in the session. I felt that she was listening to my needs and the goal I want to achieve in hypnotherapy. I have been able to reflect on my need to reach my goal after the session and Jean was great in following up with me and how I was experiencing the information or awareness I had gained from the first session.
I started seeing Jean because I was having difficulty coping with the stress of completing my degree part time while working fulltime.
Jean really made me think about what it was I wanted to do. She helped me to structure my goals in a way that I’d never thought of before, helping me focus on the things that really mattered to me and how I could achieve them. I always left our sessions feeling empowered and motivated.
I think the most important thing that Jean has thought me is that the answer to everything lies within me, that discovery in itself has truly changed my life.
I was very hesitant at first with Hypnosis, I was very worried about giving someone full control of my subconscious. I have been so pleasantly surprised, Jean is great and I wake up after my sessions feeling relaxed and at peace she manages to relax me enough to let go of my worries and manages every time to tap into my subconscious. It’s quite amazing really.
Hypnosis really helped me realise that the power lies within myself to get rid of a habit that I have had ever since I can remember. It was really remarkable to see change in my own behaviour, particularly in areas I was not expecting. The main thing that hypnosis taught me is the fact that the willingness has to be there to change, and that it is an ongoing process of gradually weaning yourself off the habit.
I really believe in the power of hypnosis, not only because it is very effective, but also safe, relaxing, and an amazing process of self exploration. I would really recommend it to anyone that is willing to give the alternative to pharmaceutical medicine a try- It will certainly make a difference in your life!
Hi my name is Nandipha Radebe, aged 14. Jean is an amazing woman, we had phenomenal coaching sessions together and they were all effective. I feel like I’ve learnt so much about myself, most of it was already in me, it just wasn’t revealed or strengthened. I have developed incredibly all thanks to Jean. She is patient, helpful, caring, organized, an amazing listener and she responds openly and positively. She is very much motivated as a coach. She also knows how to deal with bad or inadequate responses and is very much co-operative in terms of achieving certain goals but still allowing you to make decisions that are best for you as an individual. Jean is an intelligent young lady and I’ve had a superb journey, it’s been worth my while and definitely something to keep for a lifetime.
Thank you so much. Wishing you all the best for your career. It was an honour meeting you. Deeply touched, moved.
I started my hypnotherapy sessions with Jean to stop smoking, but ended up getting so much more out of it. Jean took the time to understand exactly where I was coming from and what I wanted, and was very sincere in wanting to help me overcome my bad habit. Jean explained the process comprehensively and her sensitivity and general manner made me feel safe and confident. From the first session, I noticed a shift in mindset and the tools and techniques I have learnt have empowered me to keep improving. I found Jean to be professional, helpful and friendly at all times allowing me to have complete faith and trust in her. I would highly recommend Jean.
‘If you’ve reached a point in your life where you are curious about where you are, how you got to be here and you’re perhaps wondering why you respond as you do in certain life situations, I would absolutely recommend the Enneagram! With extraordinary perception, empathy and insight, Jean led me on a journey of self-discovery, where I explored aspects of myself that had never quite made sense to me. Having always followed the road less travelled, I have to say this is one of the most valuable and profound tools I have ever experienced. Jean surprised me time and again with the depth of her knowledge – and especially, her willingness to explore and share her intuitive knowing in an incredibly safe way. It has left me feeling peaceful and empowered. Everyone should do this!’
My experience with Jean has been phenomenal. I felt at ease whenever I was with her in the sessions. Jean is patient and understanding and she always made it seem easy and possible to get through my challenges. I will be forever grateful to Jean, an amazing human being!
I have been in social work practice for 27 years, and had heard a little about life coaching, but had never experienced it firsthand.
When Jean Rodrigues came to Glenvista High School, to complete part of her internship, I eagerly asked to be one of her clients, to which she readily agreed. We embarked on an eight-week journey together, during which, I learnt a lot about myself. Jean displayed a high level of skill, understanding, and empathy, consistently emphasizing that she is my partner on this journey, all of which created a feeling of caring, safely and support for me.
During this journey, Jean helped me to identify some personal strengths and values, which I drew on along the way, to build self-belief, and a greater sense of purpose in my life. I also learnt to check in with my body to identify unconscious responses, (to happenings around me), some of which may advance, or hinder me on my life journey. I was able to identify some important sticking points, which I need to be aware of, so that I can create more “flow” in my life. Jean also gave me valuable homework tasks to do between sessions, (some of which I will need to revisit, as I did not complete them).
Furthermore, Jean demonstrated considerable skill in writing a thorough and accurate summary of each life coaching session, which is an extremely useful tool for me to refer to on my continuing journey towards self-growth and exploration.
I thank you, Jean heartily for the highly professional, yet warm and caring way you have assisted and supported me along this path of my life’s journey. Thank you also for helping the learners at the school, and I know they are going to miss you. Jean, I wish that the universe and the Divine may richly bless you on your life’s journey, and that you are able to use your own unique skills and empathy to help others evolve into the beautiful butterflies they are capable of being! In the process, you will continue evolving into an ever more alluring and precious butterfly, yourself.
I’m so glad I had this experience. If I didn’t, I would still be the person that had low confidence, a low self-esteem and that cared what others thought about me. Now I am more comfortable with who I am and I’m more aware of what I believe and my own priorities. I can now focus on what’s more important to me rather than to others. This process was a big eye-opener and it changed my negative situation into a positive one.
Jean is a wonderful person and I really felt comfortable with her. She helped me every step of the way and I am very grateful for that. I will always remember the techniques I was taught to help me deal with stress, confidence and self self-esteem and how I manage my life. I’m not scared of all the days ahead of me anymore and I now look forward to the future ahead of me.
