Yasmine Defouni, Certified Holistic Health Coach
Working with people and watching the ripple of health transform their quality of life is my career objective!
Whether in my former years as the co-founder of The Egyptian Autistic Society, or through my work in alternative medicine, I witnessed myself and others challenge their limits and expand beyond their perceived capabilities.
The challenge is whether to do it alone or partner with professionals to help plan, guide, and support you through your journey.
I was there once. I started my journey successfully on my own. Yet, I truly transformed my life when I partnered with professionals to meet the ever-changing landscape of life.
With a Masters in Education, and degrees in Psychology, Alternative Medicine, and Health Coaching, I will work with you to meet your goals and exceed them backed by a holistic approach and fueled by your commitment to change.
With guided baby steps, you will learn to make healthy food choices, engage in activities that nourish your body and soul, improve the quality of your relationships, and reach your career goals!
