Janis is a world-renowned Neuro Strategist and Emotional Wellness Coach and has worked with people around the globe. She offers services in person and via Skype and has successfully helped people to challenge themselves, bringing forward change in all aspects of their lives. Her process allows them to release what has been holding her clients back, overcoming fears, phobias, and releasing all unwarranted emotions.
Like most people, Janis had her own grief, losses, and emotional traumas to deal with at a young age and, like most people, thought she had it all under control. Over time, it became obvious to her that she did not have it under control and that there is more to life, and she wanted to be part of that.
Janis is passionate about ending the cycle of bullying, empowering people, and encouraging them to create a compelling future for themselves, their families, and their community.
Janis’ passion to end bullying comes from having experienced bullying for most of her life. She has been bullied, been the bully, retaliated, taken revenge, and isolated herself.
Janis grew up in a workman’s town in the days when people would say biff them back, do not be a crybaby, and stand up for yourself. She learnt to do just that and this led to her experiencing bullying from all angles.
Sharing this with you may help you to understand more about Janis, about bullying, and how bullying often starts with the dangers of the 2 R’s—revenge and retaliation. It also shows you how isolation is intimidating and that bullies are people too!
At the age of 10, Janis took it upon herself to assume the position of protector in her family along with her older brother. She was the youngest of 4 siblings and Janis knew what it was like to be teased, called names, and left out of groups. Most people did not notice how much this hurt, as in many ways she was a confident kid with a big bravado.
She thought she had it all under control but when it came to her other brother and sister being called names and bullied because they had a physical disability—she did the only thing she could and retaliated, in order to defend what was important to her.
As a teenager transitioning into adulthood, Janis used the same tactics when called names or bullied at school and work, only, she thought she had got better at not reacting. The truth was, she learnt to bottle it up until she could no longer take it.
The 2 R’s would surface and she’d retaliate and take revenge. This was the only way she knew to protect herself, and of course, by doing this, she would be instantly seen as the bully. This is where the “Bully is not always the Bully” can be seen, well not in the interim anyway. However, when you revert to retaliating or taking revenge, you become the bully, and so the cycle begins.
Janis questioned herself after being bullied at her job for 2 years, where she was not only bullied, she was isolated by the bully and others who had been convinced she was the bully. Janis started to believe it was all her, that she must be a bad person, and so on. She cried on the way to and from work each day, then hid her feelings. Until one day, she took a stance and said no more, and enough is enough.
This is when she sought out help. With an amazing coach, Janis learnt how to break the cycle. She was able to take a different approach, see herself for who she is, and stop taking responsibility for the actions of others. Janis no longer retaliated or acknowledged her bully. This meant they finally had to take responsibility for their action for who they were.
Janis knew then what she wanted to do with her life: to break the cycle of bullying so she could help herself and others to live the life they wanted, not the life they believed they had to live.
Throughout Janis’ career and ongoing studies, she acquired the skill set and strategies to effectively work with people to implement positive change in their lives. Helping people move past what has been holding them back, finding their laser focus, and tapping into their unlimited potential.
Janis has been in personal development; health, and wellbeing fields for many years, and she believes in integrity and congruency, helping others to achieve greatness and results through all areas of their lives.
As a Neuro Strategist and Emotional Wellness Coach, Janis is able to help people by getting them to evaluate the preconceptions they have made throughout their life. Challenging them to see why they do what they do and what and where they would like to be. She assists them in making changes to every part of their existence, bringing forward who they are, and what they want from life, revealing their full potential.
Janis is a strong believer in what you think about comes about; in knowing that it is time for you to laser your focus, tailor your thoughts around the life you want to live, in order to reach your highest potential and desired outcomes.
