Jessica Kyriacou is an exceptional empowerment mindset and self-healing coach who specialises in re-wiring old programming that holds people back from thriving. Passionate about helping people find their way, she delivers profound change for her clients because she works with the conscious and unconscious mind in many different ways.
She helps clients heal emotional trauma and get rid of unwanted thoughts, emotions, and behaviors with the use of neuro-linguistic psychology, hypnotherapy, and conscious education. Jessica’s techniques enable clients to eliminate issues from their past or present so they can move forward and reach their goals.
Most coaches and therapists focus their approach on the conscious mind, while Jessica focuses on the unconscious mind as well because it makes a greater impact and it allows change to happen in a shorter period. If the unconscious mind doesn’t heal along with the conscious mind, it will continue to lock the person in their trauma, making progress slow and painful.
Jessica’s approach is focused on the future and on how the client wants to feel. Based on that, she helps them unlock their own unconscious power to release what’s holding them back, and be empowered to write an entirely new story for their lives.
Jayne Younie is a life and business coach, doctor of metaphysical science, counsellor, and clinical hypnotherapist with over 30 years of experience helping people identify, embrace, and connect with their authentic selves. She helps people step into their true strength and power so they can shift away from low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, stress, emotional overwhelm, and shutdown.
Jayne believes that by educating people on how their minds operate, they are able to undo faulty belief systems and learn to master their mind, thoughts, and inner rules. That’s why she started The Mind Mentor, where she provides exercises that help people rewire their thoughts and feelings, set goals, and unveil who they are at their core.
With Jayne’s help, people are able to transform themselves physically, mentally, and emotionally. Her unique coaching style combines counseling, NLP, and hypnotherapy audio meditations that are tailored to each individual client. The Mind Mentor offers one on one sessions, Zoom calls, and a specialised 12-week online program.
Jayne applies everything she teaches to her own life and she’s living proof that people can change their lives if they want to. Six years ago, she left a 26-year marriage to a narcissistic, alcoholic man with only her clothes. She lived in her office and had a huge debt put in her name, fought the banks on her own, won, and changed her life in every conceivable way. Today, she is happy and successful, and loves helping others to become the best version of themselves.

She’s passionate about working with women who want to live exceptional and extraordinary lives, where they can share their unique gifts with the world and inspire others to do the same.
She believes our behaviours are driven by our beliefs and those subconscious limiting beliefs often keep us from stepping into our highest self and inner power. Kasey’s coaching approach is deeply intuitive and holistic, through which she helps women free themselves to live a life that’s full of meaning, magic, abundance, purpose, and joy.
Balance is essential and Kasey helps her clients find it in all areas of life, including physical, mental and emotional, family and home life, business and career, financial well-being, romantic and personal relationships, and so much more.
Dasha Dare is an NYC-based life coach and professional photographer. She created a successful coaching program called “Time to Dare”, designed for high-performative individuals who want to align their mind and heart with their True North. This one-of-a-kind coaching program is based on embodied cognition research, state of flow studies, and an experiential approach to learning.
The idea behind Dasha’s program was born during the pandemic, when she realized that people were re-evaluating their lifestyle, jobs, and habits, and waking up to the fact that they no longer had to follow their old way of living. For many people around the world, the pandemic was a catalyst for change.
Now, as the world settles into a “new normal”, Dasha wants to provide people with the support and confidence they need to pursue a different kind of living. To achieve that, Time to Dare focuses on three key pillars. Mindfulness, to achieve control over a restless mind and inner experience. Embodiment, to develop intuition. And Creativity, to experience the state of optimal performance.
Over the course of 8 weeks of 1:1 weekly sessions, clients will dive into mindfulness practices, gain clarity around their stories and behavior pattern, learn to recognize their inner voice and interpret their body language, learn to improvise and express themselves freely, and engage in experiential somatic exercise tailored to them.

Aaron is passionate about helping his clients find fulfillment in all aspects of life, including health, spirituality, relationships, wealth, and professional career.

His approach to life coaching is based on his belief that everyone deserves happiness and to live life to the fullest. Tomorrow is never promised, so Aaron helps his clients enjoy today. Losing two close friends at a very young age gave him the drive to want more out of life and those around him, so he wants to inspire others to do the same.
