“Fate is the first word that comes to mind when I think about the work that Joy and I have done together. She began to work with me after one of the most difficult moments in my life, where I felt extremely depressed and unmotivated. As a man, it’s difficult to feel like that. However, after a few sessions with Joy, I was able to get out of that funk and a newer, stronger, happier version of me emerged. I feel more in control than ever before and life has taken on a sense of freedom and excitement that I hadn’t felt in a long time. I am truly grateful to have the opportunity to work with her.”

“A year and a half ago, my life shattered into an million pieces. In an instant, all that understood as reality changed. I was left in a great abyss. How does one recover from something so tragic? The answer came as Joy. Piece by piece, I was put together. Colors formed around the outer edges of my world and eventually filled up my entire space. Her words entwined with love and magic inspires, uplifts and heals. She helps you find the very core of your essence. In the process you learn to love yourself, find grace in tragedy and ultimately forgive.”

“Joy is a special treasure. She is filled with invaluable knowledge, insight and guidance to navigate the treacherous waters of life, love, work, friendships and family. She is an action woman – she assesses the problems and provides actionable advice to get the desired outcome. Her sessions are focused and effective. I have worked with many counselors and advisors, but Joy is the one I still work with to guide me in life, love and business. She knows the essence of what really matters in life and she will share it with those who come with an open heart and open mind.”
"So here I was at 59 years old and at the peak of my life’s collective success both professionally and personally. I had experienced exciting multiple career’s as a nationally recognized inventor with over 70 patents and a Real Estate Developer.
I had an adventurous and loving family and great health.
At 61 the seas of my life started getting choppy but I had in the past been able to adjust course with little collateral damage. This time however it seemed that my even slight course adjustments resulted in severe oversteer and I was now heading into a storm.
I had over the year taken on two substantial projects without understanding I was now 61 not 35 but I loved the excitement of the next business adventure and pushed forward.
At some point I started to become exhausted and out of sink physically and emotionally to the point my world was now in control of me.
I had embarked on a path to find out why I felt tired, frustrated and anxious as all were relatively new extremes for me. In the search to medically improve my declining health I met an alternative medicine practitioner who was more helpful than the traditional approaches I had become frustrated by.
In one of my consultations I made a comment that it would be nice to have a non family member to converse with about my thoughts who would be a good listener with life experience. It was also important that this individual did not have a script pad ready to prescribe meds.
I knew I was out of balance and needed some tools to implement in order to regain some control over my life.
I was referred to Joy and though I did not follow up immediately I received a call few days later from Joy and we set a time to get aquatinted.
From the time of our first formal get together, I felt I had a partner that understood where I was and how I got there. Joy was very helpful in providing the insight and had the ability to help me understand the emotional responses to stressors in my business and personal life.
Additionally by reverse engineering some health strategies she was able to point out important areas that were directly affecting my health. I thought it was my health affecting my outlook and approach to problem solving but in many cases my health was being negatively affected by my own inability to see clear and positive outcomes. I had in fact evolved into a negative loop process and could not see a place to jump free of that destructive cycle.
Joy is a great listener and with a personal life filled with valuable experience, intuition and education she everyday brought the right tools to help move me forward in my quest to improve the way I managed my life.
Though I will probably not make the “Deans List” regarding strict discipline to doing the homework, my time with Joy has been more valuable than all the other traditional and non traditional approaches I experienced combined. Furthermore it has been a great investment in myself.
I value that Joy will be standing by to help me navigate my next charted path which may get a bit bumpy and Joy is an expert at finding then adjusting the seat belt for a smoother ride."

“From the moment that I meet Joy I knew that somehow this incredible woman would be a positive influence in my life, and over the last 3 years I have known Joy in many capacities. She has been my mentor and my friend. Joy has taught me to savor the moments and given me strength in her guidance through difficult life challenges. Joy is an intelligent, dedicated and loving woman who brings her experience and knowledge to many around her who are willing to embrace all that life has to offer. After taking a 7-week course on “Owning Your Own Magnificence” and reading Joy’s books I can declare that this woman knows what she’s talking about (and walks her talk to boot)! As a life coach Joy is focused on bringing confidence to her clients and is capable of handling any situation with thoughtfulness and maturity Joy has shown me how to turn ordinary into Extraordinary and for that she will always be in my life and my heart. I am a better person for having Joy Weston in my life. I am thankful for the day our paths crossed.”

“Joy Weston brings her infectious enthusiasm for life to every project, person and room that she fills with her joy! I have taken Joy Weston’s seven week course “Own Your Own Magnificence” and also attended her one-day workshops. Her platform is clear. She wants everyone to feel good about themselves and to reach their innate, full potential as magnificent women. All the discussions, subject matter, feedback and research is organized and planned with specific goals to be discussed, explored, discovered and finally—incorporated into our lives. I have had some amazing insights about myself and the epiphanies are not always what I would expect. Sometimes I found out how even my perceived strengths were pulling me down and preventing me from fully evolving into the loving, compassionate, kind, intelligent woman that I strive to be.
All the women in our groups were lovingly motivated to open up and blossom in a supportive, non-judgmental atmosphere so that authenticity and genuine compassion prevails. I see myself differently since Joy taught me how to embrace my good qualities, to nurture my innocent soul and to love myself and others more. I have grown since experiencing Joy’s groups and the wisdom and skills she shared with us. I have a more grateful attitude and I often reframe things that I think or say so that the positive aspects blast through the negative, counter-productive behavior that does not serve me.
Joy seems to emanate from Joy’s pores. Through her work, I feel like I learn new processes to guide my life through osmosis! I am a Joy devotee and it gives me great pleasure and honor to spread the word of Joy’s exudes mission to bring “joy” to everyone’s life.”

"As a Dr of Oriented medicine DOM specializing in Functional Medicine I treat the root cause of my patients' symptoms. FM does not ask "what" is the disease my patient has, FM asks "why" does my patient have a disease? In order to accomplish this, FM takes into consideration the entire person. Including the patients' emotional and psychological state. When my patients need this type of intervention, I will refer them to someone that can help. I have referred many patients to Joy Weston because she is a true healer.
Joy uses her passion, education, and wisdom to guide the patient through their health journey. I feel extremely confident in referring her my patients. The outcomes are always positive. Over and over again, I hear my patients say to me "Joy is truly a joy". I look forward to working with Joy for many years to come, and continuing to change people's lives. She is an integral part of my team."
"As a professional photographer and traveler at heart, I read Joys books and find them to be such an inspiration for what I want to achieve, especially as a single woman. Now my expectations
for travel and love feel like they are within reach, especially since I read the book LIFE-LUST and LOVE, I now have a purpose for my future. A WONDERFUL READ!! Thank you, Joy "
