Joy Dushey is the founder of The Joyful Approach, a holistic coaching practice and wellness community. As a holistic lifestyle coach and breathwork teacher she uses a multi-tiered system of consciousness to help clients shift thoughts, make space and access their deepest truths to enrich their lives. Joy shares The Joyful Approach through one-on-one client work, workshops and retreats and by curating an online community of like-minded holistic enthusiasts and experts who are also passionate about inspiring positive impact.

Joy spent her early years as a knowledge-seeker, exploring answers to the questions of life. In her 20’s, her naturally exuberant nature was challenged when she lost her brother tragically and later she endured the most traumatic event of her life. At the age of 29, she suffered an ischemic stroke. It was a totally transformative experience that forced her to reevaluate the deeper meaning of her life as she once knew it. After a year of rehabilitation, Joy set out on a journey of self-discovery that led her to healthier, conscious living and her spiritual path. She connected with specialists in holistic therapy healing and studied with spiritual teachers. She became immersed with the CHEK Institute, where in 2012 she became certified as a coach and trained under David Elliott  she was certified as a Breathwork practioner in 2017. After facing her adversities, she felt passionate about helping others overcome blocks that prevent us from reaching optimal living.

Joy works one-on-one with people of all kinds, helping them make positive shifts through self exploration and a multi-tiered system of consciousness. The Joyful Approach philosophy is an alchemy that guides individuals towards a sense of purpose where they can truly fulfill their dreams.
