Family Restored

* “Dr Joy is literally a lifesaver. We first visited Dr Joy during a very difficult time in our marriage, and she provided advice and guidance that not only restored our marriage, but taught us to really learn and understand how to communicate with each other. Our family is still intact today because of the care and love that Dr Joy gave us, and the remarkable wisdom she so freely shared.”

Smoking Ceased

* I went to see Joy Vanderbeck with my husband to stop smoking through hypnosis. I was a skeptic about the whole issue and told her that I didn’t want to quit smoking, but was there to help support my husband quit. I have always thought being hypnotized was not possible, however I went ahead with the session. She told me at the end that I was welcome to go outside and smoke a cigarette if I wanted. Joy had taken a different approach and went in through my side door. She told me to breathe in the clean fresh air, and if I wanted to light up, go ahead. I have not had a cigarette since March and I smoked for 40 years. Hats off to you Joy and visiting me through my side door.

I Stopped Smoking

* Desperately wanting to stop smoking after 30 years of my life, I met Joy. One session and 18 months later I still have not smoked. Joy is truly amazing! She has helped me to unlock doors to self confidence, self respect and a more positive way of thinking and living. Joy is truly blessed with a special gift! Thank you Joy for being such a huge part of my spiritual journey!

Pleased Client, Mansfield, TX

Effortless Living

* “My life finally works! I spent a lot of years believing that my life (and its baggage) were unchangeable. Then I worked with Joy. Under her expert guidance, I learned to identify the root causes of the pervasive fear and unrest I had become accustomed to living with. Joy taught me how to cast it away, and finally, to heal. I never knew before that life is supposed to be this effortless, comparatively speaking. I have even received comments that my smile looks different, happier, since this experience.”

The Will to Live

* Years ago when in the midst of a deep, suicidal depression, I called Joy Vanderbeck. She said she knew just what to do. And she did. Using hypnosis and guided imagery, Joy, non-judgmental, highly talented, and very intuitive, changed my life. She helped me reach deep into myself gaining the self-knowledge and life skills to enjoy a happy and productive life.

Teen Depression and Anger

* Let me start by saying… thank you. Thank you! It’s unbelievable the state at which my daughter Lindsey came to you and her state of mind currently! It’s so hard to believe that she went through so many psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors and medication before we finally found you. I have her math teacher to thank for telling me about you. When my daughter came to you, she and I were at the end of our rope. Our fist telephone conversation left me wondering how in the world would I pay for more treatment for this child? But after the first visit with you, I immediately saw a difference in my little girl. I would have done anything to get her help. After a couple of months my little girl was back to the child I remembered, without the assistance of medication. She’s on track to graduate and go on to college now! I can’t thank you enough, I can only tell people I meet about the miracle God worked in our lives through you. Thank you so much Joy.

Scholastic Success

* My son, Garrett, was struggling in school. He was on the brink of failing some classes and he didn’t seem motivated to even try. He wanted to eventually go to college and I knew his grades weren’t going to help him get there. Through Joy’s “positive living” coaching and guidance, Garrett has made a very positive transition. His outlook on life was better, he seemed to be happier, and his grades improved considerably. He took control of his school responsibilities. He even got a part-time job his senior year of high school. He graduated from high school this spring. After coaching with Joy, most of his grades have been in the 90’s, with some 100’s and some 80’s. He made good scores on his SAT and is successfully enrolled in college for fall 2007. He is excited about going to college. Joy, you are awesome. Thank you!

Best Decision I Ever Made

* As I started on a journey of self-discovery, a friend directed me to Joy Vanderbeck. She is caring, helpful, insightful, and very spiritual. It was the best decision I ever made.

T.P., Registered Nurse

Weight Loss – Alcohol – Food Addictions

* I started my journey looking for a way to lose weight. I felt miserable and could not afford a new wardrobe. Quite simply, I was growing out of my clothes. Nothing else was working, so I thought maybe hypnosis would give me the will power I needed. I called Dr. Joy Vanderbeck and made an appointment. At our first meeting, I told her the truth about me as I saw it. She listened and did not judge me. She told me we could do hypnosis strictly for the weight or we could go after the whole octopus. All the arms of different problems that were making me want to hide in food, alcohol and crazy relationships. I choose the octopus. I can honestly say this was one of the best decisions I have ever made. My world has changed along with my physical body. I have lost 25 pounds. I have the confidence to believe in myself and depend on me. Today, I picture myself as I want to be. I am happy and aware. I no longer crave food or alcohol to fix me. My relationships have vastly improved. I would highly recommend Dr. Joy Vanderbeck for weight loss and/or self-discovery of any kind.

Solid Footing

* Lost? Crushed? The foundation that you built your life on completely crumbled? You realize that what you based your behavior on or who or what you turned to before clearly hasn’t worked? That something is REALLY wrong? Life is not supposed to be like this…that the decisions you have made in life need to be examined. Yeah, that summed it up for me 2 weeks after my 40th birthday.

The path to “discovering” who I truly am I can now see. Dr. Joy, with her incredible insight and listening skills will help you stay the course that leads to this enlightenment. Make no mistake about it. Your life will be enriched and change because of the efforts you conduct. However, to this day I still seek Dr. Joy’s guidance when the seas are rough or there is another defining moment in my life.

Dr. Joy is an incredible teacher. There are no limits to what you will be able to explore in life with the lessons that you will learn from Dr. Joy. Humanity talks all the time about education. Finish High School, finish College, get an MBA, I did it all, and formal education is worthwhile, but it is not enough. What we (I) really needed, and fortunately was led to Dr. Joy to learn, is a basis for continuing education about our life’s journey and the incredible dimensions of life that exists if we are only willing to let go, trust ourselves, our inner guidance and most of all listen to our heart. Dr. Joy has helped me learn how to do all this and helped me to find my light from within.

* There are so many wonderful things I can say about Dr. Joy Vanderbeck’s coaching. Instead of, “Why does all this happen to me?” It’s now, “This is going to happen for me.” Thank you Joy Vanderbeck for all of your caring and guidance.

Life Changing!

* “Dr. Joy is a wonderful life coach.  She has helped me identify several inhibitors to current and future personal success. She has helped  (1) clarify into focus my greatest wants and needs in life (2) identify  situations that trigger negative and destructive thought patterns (3) allowed me to see my greater value and worth in my vocation and core relationships. (4) helped me in the counseling of others.  As a church leader,  her coaching has been life-changing for me personally.”

John G., Ennis, TX

Confidence Restored

* At a very crucial time in my life I was introduced to Joy. Joy, through much patience and loving concern, guided me to self-discovery. She approached me with new ways to approach life and helped restore my confidence. She helped me discover old programs (stinking thinking) and enlighten me “how they affected my life”. I encourage any who are considering working hard for life success to highly consider Joy with this process.

Hurdie Burk, Business and Personal Coach

She Truly Listens

* Every conversation and consultation with Joy has blessed and benefited me. She truly listens to what I’m saying, deeply listens for what I can’t say. Only then does she give feedback and guidance. She has supported me with a depth of understanding.

*Disclaimer: This may vary from person to person.


Relationships Vastly Improved

* Dr. Joy helped me attain a greater sense of peace and joy by shifting my focus from feeling victim about problems ‘created by others’ to solutions created by myself. It is not like other assistance I have received where I kept coming back with the same issue time after time.

Dr. Joy helped me overcome depression, and all my relationships have vastly improved. I had wondered if my relationship with my husband were coming to an end.

My husband and I have a much better way of communicating. We used to be angry, blaming and fearful. Now we speak from a space of love wherein we hear each other better and are more able to find a workable solution. We are far more loving, better friends than we have been in the previous years.

*Disclaimer: This may vary from person to person.


My Life Changed

* Coaching with Dr. Joy Vanderbeck is caring, non-judgmental, compassionate and enlightening. In a short time, my life has completely changed in my personal relationships and in the most important relationship of all, the one with myself. I now have more confidence, self-love, and a better understanding of myself and my spirituality.

Family Problems Unraveled

* Dr. Joy Vanderbeck was a real “Joy” to work with. She helped our family unravel problems stemming from many generations of shame and subterfuge. It was so liberating for all of us when we came to the root of problems that had plagued us as individuals and hampered our relationships. We continue, as necessary, to contact Dr. Joy and receive the continuing support we need to be contented with ourselves and our lives. She has encouraged and promoted our independence and happiness.

Direction and Purpose

* Peace, self-esteem, self-confidence, purpose and direction. I found all of these because of the caring counsel of Dr. Joy Vanderbeck. While struggling mightily when I first met Dr. Joy, she was able to help me ‘peel the onion’ to discover true root causes of my problems and concerns. The result has been a healthy marriage, a keen sense of purpose and direction, both personally and professionally, and tools to help me continue to make thoughtful and loving decisions for the benefit of me and my family. Dr. Joy, I am deeply thankful for your care, concern, guidance and remarkable sense of truth and personal discovery.

A Powerful Positive Message

* I have networked with Dr. Joy for a couple of years now, and continue to benefit from her uplifting, thought-provoking messages. She always has a positive outlook on situations, and knows how to capture a group’s attention. Her positive influence has reminded me to take the time to really think about who I am, and who I want to be to the world. I highly recommend Dr. Joy as a lifestyle coach, and as a speaker.

Goal Achievement

* After working with Dr. Joy, I have seen my son begin to realize he is in control of his life. He has become more confident, self-assured and responsible for himself and his actions. He has taken a leap into the second half of his teen-age years with a more solid step; he sees himself as a success in everything he does and makes more confident decisions. Dr. Joy has helped my son realize current goals and set his course for the future!

UTA Student


* For years I felt that I was on the edge of some sort of breakthrough where all the pieces of my life would begin to fall together. I came to Joy at a point in my life when I had reached a crisis and she helped me to make that breakthrough. I have a very improved life now and I will always love her for that.

J.D., Music Store Owner/Music Teacher

Career Catapulted

* Dr. Joy is REALLY good and has been indispensable to me. I’ve dealt with lots of “left over stuff” from a couple of bad years with a different organization and a bad personal relationship. I attribute much of my “positive mental readiness” to her teaching and coaching. She really helped me get my mind ready to make lots of money this year!

Thank Goodness for Dr. Joy

* My initial reaction when encouraged to seek professional counseling, not interested. Thank goodness the referring family member would not take no for an answer. The first meeting with Joy was a success and I soon found myself looking forward to our time together. Regardless of the topic of my discussions, Joy remained positive and offered viable and workable solutions. Dr. Joy Vanderbeck is in my opinion a true professional blessed with a unique gift and ability to help those who want to help themselves.

* I did not know the difference between rescuing and truly helping someone. Through Joy’s guidance, I have been discovering balance. Today, I eat right, exercise, and give equal time to myself.

Thanks Joy!
