Hey there, I’m Ji-Youn (she/her/hers).
I’m a self-care coach, counsellor, and facilitator.
For the past 6 years, my deep care for wellbeing has manifested into projects that address mental health issues through both institutional change and self-responsible, disciplined self-care. But while navigating my own healing journey, I learned of the significant impact of our past on our daily choices. Once we dig into the past patterns that lead to current issues, we can shine light on why we repeat behaviours (counselling) and then rewire them (coaching) rather than trying to rigorously train ourselves to ‘just do it’. And this is how I came to add counselling to my coaching practice.
Along with my coaching and counselling practices, I co-facilitate feminist events for changemakers who want to build healthier relationships with their loving anger. I have also hosted self-care events on burnout prevention, energy management, and boundary-setting. Outside of work, I enjoy reading feminist literature, moaning to good food, and exploring my body through movement, sound and sensuality.
