Joyful Love

Joy is everything I could wish for in a healer: empathetic, generous, knowledgeable and patient… This is her true (and maybe divine) calling, to guide others to align, center, emanate their best selves. I have worked with Joy for just four months and there is a new serenity in my life I can only attribute to her, from our sessions and meditations. Thank you Joy…
Joys work is like something I have never experienced before. She is kind, loving and most of all generous with with the energy she gives during her sessions. I left feeling open, enlightend, full of energy and happiness. Thank you for this life changing experience. I look forward to coming back.  Breather, NYC
I’m approaching a milestone birthday turning 50 which has had me feeling emotional over the past months. Some of the feelings are of fear, vulnerability, frustration and yet much Gratitude.
Fear of the unknown & excitement for what’s to come in this next chapter of what we call life. I have so much Gratitude for many blessings from G-d and new beginnings. I’m also experiencing frustration for being almost 50 and not being able to turn back time .. to re-live the miracles and to repair many many mistakes I believe I made.
In the course of my 49 years I have experienced lots of beautiful moments of love and also beautiful moments of pain and disappointment and also abuse.
The reality is stark. Yet it hasn’t crushed me. It set me back. And in the reset backwards I was forced to go on a journey to find myself and seriously look inside. As lonely as it can feel it’s empowering.
One of the courageous steps I took in this self reflecting journey was to reach out to Joy of The Joyful Approach. I have to say I dabbled in Joy’s approach of healing from the inception of her teachings. I thought I was connected to her philosophies but I wasn’t sold. I was blocking my potential to live my best life. I was afraid. I was more connected to my codependent relationships than I was to myself. My core desired self was buried under layers and layers of programmed behaviors. Patterns that were created and that I was addicted to behaving in since the beginning of time for me.
Wow!! What an epiphany today. Thank G-d.
I am so grateful to Joy for guiding me in
moving energy in my body through breathwork, creating within myself the desire to change , mindful intention setting and journaling ( actually writing down my core desired feelings , emotions, goals , plans and steps of how to achieve all I desire).
Her mantras are contagious. Her reiterations regarding nurturing the body, healthy habits are non negotiable for today ( 80/20 rule 🙂
I feel reborn in a way and I am  truly excited to hopefully with G-d’s help and with mentorship like “The Joyful Approach” to live the next chapter of my life beautifully, in my best vibration at my healthiest possible state mentally and physically. Thank you Joy for so bravely sharing your wisdom and healing ways. You have healed me in ways I have tried to describe here in this testimonial but also in ways that are mysterious and difficult to properly portray. I think it’s the love in your pure heart that resides in you for all beings and your true desire to help anyone that suffers in any way resembling your own pain you may have once experienced. Thank you for raw honesty JOY. My healer.



Finding Joy was such a blessing at a very challenging time in my life. Going into my first session I felt uncertainty, fear and doubt, about my future, and more importantly, about myself. Joy made me feel instantly comfortable and cared for, and I knew immediately that I was in the best of hands. Our session was life-changing and quite hard to describe, but if I had to try, I would describe it as magic. Visions came to me and many questions were answered during our time together. Even more so, I walked away feeling confident in myself to work through my challenges knowing that I had Joy in my “toolbox.”

Since then, I have experienced sessions with Joy in group events and small group sessions. Everytime, I experience something different and walk away with new treasures. Joy has opened my eyes to so many different possibilities for myself and my future. She also has impacted the way I view healing and health. I am very thankful to have the Joyful Approach in my life.

I’m so blessed to have met Joy Dushey at this moment in my life. As a professional musician, author and educator for nearly 3 decades, my work requires a certain resiliency to confront the challenges involved in developing creative projects. Doing breath work with Joy has helped me to explore and confront self-imposed roadblocks that can impede my forward progress. Joy is at once intuitive, nurturing and supportive, yet she also gently challenges me to go to uncomfortable places. The results have been impactful both on the conscious and sub-conscious levels. And while the work is very powerful on its own, in Joy’s hands I believe it truly has the power to be life altering.

Joy has been an amazing teacher to me. I never knew what breathwork was until I met her but I am so happy that I tried it because it has saved me. The best part about it is that no matter where I am I can do a session because Joy is available on Skype as well. She is there to guide you through the whole process. She is also an amazing life coach who really gives amazing advice that helps you get through the good and bad times in life. She has really helped me feel less anxious and helped me improve my life.

I don’t even know where to begin to describe the effect that Joy has had on my life. Going through a very difficult time, to say the least, I decided to join one of Joy’s meditation classes on the beach. At the end of the class, with tears streaming down my face, all I needed was a hug and Joy gave it to me. I then knew, I was in the right place and in the right hands to deal with all life was throwing at me.

Joy has opened my eyes to a world that was laying right inside of me. She has created an environment which is calming, healing and most of all safe. There is no judgement when you enter into a session, allowing you to leave your worries at the door.

Through breath-work and Joy’s guidance, I am working on releasing all of the negative energies that are no longer serving me and are blocking me from bringing in love, life, abundance and anything else my heart desires. She has helped me to move forward on the true path of healing.

Joy goes the extra mile, checking up on me after our sessions and answering any questions that may arise. In addition, she has taught me how to meditate on my own and has given me tools to reduce any anxiety when I am not in her presence. Joy is peace, light and love all wrapped into one.

Every day we should identify what we are grateful for… and every day I am grateful for Joy!!


Joy provides a beautiful, safe environment in which to explore personal growth and healing. With her soft, gentle approach, she has opened me up to new spiritual practices taught in an easily accessible way. I leave every interaction and conversation with Joy feeling inspired, light-filled and Joy-ful.
