Coaching and Therapeutic Life Counseling
Do you know the difference between Coaching and Counseling? Therapeutic Life Counseling is about working with the past as it effects your present. Coaching is about moving from the present to create a new future. However when attempting to do that, many of the “gremlins” of our past will jump in to sabotage our future. Most counselors and coaches are trained to focus on one or the other. Joy is uniquely qualified to work in both these areas. Should you think you are ready to move forward but those issues from the past come to block your way, Joy will be able to shift gears – from pure coaching, address those blockages and help you back on your way toward a life that is uniquely you.

This process (TLC) is an integration of psycho-spiritual and expressive arts disciplines that release blocked energies from the past, to shift the present and empower the future. It could involve: going back in time to retrieve and revitalize lost or frozen aspects of yourself; accessing and shifting core beliefs that no longer serve; releasing the emotional glue that holds fears in place; reworking internal contracts; releasing extraneous energies that may be running your show; balancing the power of an internalized negative voice, or fully accepting previously disowned or unaccepted aspects of yourself. This creates a ground of trust and strength that gives you the courage to take the risks necessary to make important life changes, speak your truth, express your creative self, or follow your callings. All of which lead to more health, vitality, and a joy of life.
When you feel you have the courage to move forward into new realms and have addressed issues from the past that might be holding you back, then it is time for Coaching. This process involves accessing core values to assist you in choosing what brings joy to your heart and what you want to move towards. Once you know this, FYS Coaching then supports you in clearing away remaining clouds of fear, confusion, procrastination, overwhelm, or “I don’t know how.” The process then moves into your being held accountable for co-created steps and plans until you see the fruition of your dreams.
FYS Consulting is also available to assist businesses in being more effective, with more creativity and co-operation among workers. .
Releasing Throat Center – energetic blockages
Joy has developed a highly unusual and effective way of working with and releasing energetic blockages of the throat center (5th chakra – center of expression). Through a powerful and unique process she simply calls Voice Work, Joy can assist you to unlock dormant or blocked energies that will open the voice (singing or speaking), and promote full self expression. It is not only for singing with more ease, joy and ability, but also for empowering your voice in life. It is not uncommon to start here and then transition into the deeper work (TLC) and then back again into the joy of singing.
Joy has gained this skill from her own path of going from non-singer to performing singer. She states she can help anyone to sing on pitch, open their voice and expand their ability for fuller more dynamic expression, whether they feel they can already sing or not.
Through singing, guided voice play exercises, and special healing processes, you will access your natural personal power, creative expression and set free your unique gifts.
Testimonials – What others say about working with Joy
Recent testimonial of Joy’s Private Work:
I have been to many different kinds of therapy and never felt like I really got to the heart of the important issues, even after several visits and hundreds of dollars. I recently began therapy with Joy Freeman and had only three sessions with her. Not only did we get to the real issues in a deeper way than I ever thought possible, but I learned life-long skills to continue my own therapy. I feel that for the first time, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I see my life improving in real ways through the kind of creative voice and movement therapy that Joy uses. I highly recommend Joy as someone who can help you through the most difficult challenges that confront you. The most hurtful wounds that may be keeping you from experiencing life to its fullest are the ones you have the power to let go of. I didn’t realize this was possible until my sessions with Joy!

Dr. Joy is based in Saint Petersburg, in the Tampa Bay area. If you live out of the area she is available to work with you by telephone or Skype Or, you can be set up with a beautiful vacation retreat near the water in beautiful Saint petersburg Florida.
Fees: Singing/Voice Work – $50 per hour
Therapeutic Life Counseling and Coaching $75 Hr
Sliding scale is available in some cases.
Note: Sometimes when we start with the Voice Work the need surfaces to move into the “deeper work” as I call the Therapeutic Life Counseling. If this occurs in the middle of a session, the fee is not switched untill we have a chance to speak and decide if you want to go that route for the next session.
