About Jean Ann Rodrigues
So there I was, staring at my 7th grade teacher as she had frustratingly thrown a white board marker at me and yelled, “you are stupid.” This was a monumental moment where I had to make a choice if she was right or wrong. And so began my journey of self-discovery and blessed I was to have the most incredible masters illuminate the path in front of me.
Allowing myself to grow and experience, I started my life vision doing a business degree majoring in Marketing and Psychology. From there I pursued my acting passion at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts where my deep appreciation for the human form was harnessed. Regardless, something was missing. So I continued to search other avenues of study and waited endlessly to feel that feeling of “this is it, this is my calling.” At a point of nearly giving up, I received a moment of grace when I found at a private university an opportunity to study a two-year postgraduate in Coaching and Leadership. That was the moment I was talking about! After being mentored by my own coach and listening to webinars by many of the coaching greats, I knew that this was my mission. From that day forward, I made a pledge to serve others and myself in living the most inspired life.
So here I am – A holistic self-development coach, non-medical hypnotherapist and yogi and my mission is to help individuals, such as you - live your purpose, manage your life, develop balance and be successful based on your terms. because there is no one quite like you – so it is time to own your power.
So why self-development? Well, because giving to yourSELF is about learning about you and what you want and need; learning how to manage your life; and fulfilling your dreams. DEVELOPMENT because this is about learning to become unstuck and evolve on a spiritual, physical and emotional level; where are you now and where you want to be. Self-development is about telling yourself that you will no longer ask someone else to make you happy, give you something and tell you how great you are doing in life, business or school because YOU are the one owning your life and making yourself happy and their is nothing more enlightening than that.
I believe in the modalities and processes I use as not only have I gone through vigorous internationally recognized trainings, but I have also personally experienced coaching, hypnotherapy and yoga and how these systems saved my life. I have worked with large corporate companies such as Standard Bank, conducted peer-mentorship programs in schools, presented hypnosis talks to students and developed emotional intelligence workshops for parents. Currently I have completed a research project at a high school where I integrated a holistic coaching and Satyananda yoga program in order to decrease stress, develop awareness and establish life balance. The results were phenomenal and the paper is moving through a publishing house as we speak! I have taught yoga to students at The South African College of Applied Psychology, worked alongside Childline Centre for abandoned children and of course had students challenge and grow me to be the highest version of myself.
I am dedicated to deliver a holistic approach filled with wisdom that aims to grow internal happiness for individuals looking to develop. Whether that is on a personal level, a corporate level, or youth and schools level. I am here! It is about developing clarity of purpose, learning practical skills, experiencing true wellness and being able to connect to your true essence - no comparing, no trying, just allowing yourself to experience you.
So there you have it! Thank you for taking the time to read through my profile and I look forward to connecting with you and serving you on your personal experience to greatness!
Jean Ann Rodrigues Success Stories
Working with Jean Rodrigues has been life changing, both within my professional and personal capacity. I was once a skeptic when it came to coaching and the results thereof, however after having the privilege of being coached by Jean I can truly say that life begins after coaching. When I met Jean 8 months ago I could never have imagined the journey we were about to embark on together. I first saw Jean as my career coach but I soon realized that her coaching method suited both my career and personal life and since then she has become my confidante and my friend. Things began to fall into place, largely, I think, because Jean is so tuned in to the needs and inspiration of the moment, she truly is amazing in her field and I am blessed to have her in my life. There is nothing I can't say to her. She is incredibly patient, listens intently, never judges, provides actionable insight and most importantly, she genuinely cares. I feel lucky to have met her and would recommend her (and have) to anyone seeking support or growth in all areas of your life. - Trudy Williams, Standard Bank employee
The Magic in You...
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. - Nandipha Radebe, School Student
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. - Jessica Vandeleur, Professional Photographer
The Enneagram Discovery...
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! - Phillippa Meyer, Brenthurst Library Manager
