Meditation and Mindfulness
Jozay believes in the transformative practice of mindful awareness and has adopted mindfulness as a healing modality after experiencing the positive changes mindfulness has made in her own life both professionally and personally. Mindfulness helps Jozay to be present and attuned to both her own internal world as well as the world of her clients. She engages daily in both formal and informal practice and encourages her clients to do the same.
Jozay was born and raised in Hong Kong, and her previous life saw her work in the highly pressured and often frenetic world of international banking. Her business background has placed her in a unique position of truly understanding the personal and professional demands of complex working environments. This knowledge has allowed her to effectively apply the tools of mindfulness to the workplace to optimise performance, time management and stress reduction.
