ESTIE MATTHEUS – BodyTalk Balance Centre
I am a child of the 60’s.  Legend would have it that I was born in the Free State, but some of my first memories are that of the ocean where I would play for hours on the beach all by myself; only surrounded by the vastness of the All that Is.  During primary school, my family moved to a small town called Carletonville.  In a small town, you have to adapt and fit in with the normal – or else you would be outcast.  So for fear of being ‘different’, you learn to adapt.

My career has guided me to make decisions, follow specific paths and intermingle with a very diverse group of people and interest fields which did not always conform to the norm! 

When my brother was diagnosed with cancer, I started investigating alternative and natural therapies that could assist him – or so I thought.  This shift in focus culminated in many years and trainings later, in a complete career shift from the legal field – where I thought my passion was – to holistic healthcare and medicine. 


I am of the firm opinion that we are all here on a journey, All part of the All that Is and that is the focus that I bring to my work and my life. Treating everybody with respect whilst remaining true to my core values of integrity, honesty and truth, I am currently a full time Whole HealthCare practitioner from the BodyTalk Balance Centre in Winchester Hills Ext 1 [Johannesburg South].  I consult both in the clinic and am available to do remote work on request.

Working from the heart my hope is that I am able to bring the Light to everybody’s life - including my loving husband of 24 years, two beautiful daughters, 6 cats and my cutest Clover bunny!

JUNE STONE – Body Harmony – Wellness Transformation Coach
As a certified health coach, trained in nutrition and coaching, I aim to educate, empower and inspire people to take back control of their health and learn to create a level of personal body harmony.  You will be guided in how to create a Wellness vision and explore why it’s become important to you.I have 16 years’ experience as a Personal Trainer and work from my home fitness studio, which means I add important insight into how to achieve a metabolically active body.I am also a self-appointed ambassador for the Inner Child that is unrepresented and misunderstood in our day-to-day lives. The Inner Child is the emotional self that lives inside of all of us, that has the capacity to guide and inform us in wise and healthy ways.

Creating Body Harmony is a balancing act that includes a sustainable nutrition plan, activity that keeps your body’s metabolic rate active, emotional wellness that reflects your actions with positive purposeful intention and a spiritual life lived with integrity, according to your personal values.

I aim to educate people about Childhood Emotional Neglect and how we as adults are unaware of the “silent struggle” as we downplay our emotions, and lose connection to our Inner Child. When parents fail to respond enough to your emotions, you grow up with a powerful, unspoken message that your emotions don’t matter. Relationship challenges, depression and anxiety are typical symptoms that can be successfully addressed, when you learn how much your emotions matter.

I have witnessed many successful Inner Child reconnections using Hypnosis as a gentle, yet magical healer.

I still enjoy some time in the Corporate world facilitating training for various interpersonal skills

LEIGH JOY MANSEL-PLEYDELL – Author, Addictions Counsellor, Professional Speaker and Founder of ‘Leigh Joy Inspires’
Leigh Joy is an Author, Addictions Counsellor, Professional Speaker and Founder of 'Leigh Joy Inspires'. "My passion for inspiring addicts can be traced back 11 years to the beginning of my journey of recovery from drug addiction.  I have since I can remember been a fan of the underdog, the late bloomer, the rebel and the survivor!  It takes incredible courage to rise above the ashes of a life of addiction to, like a Phoenix, become a blazing light for others still struggling with addiction.  The last 6 years I have had the powerful, passionate purpose to help the addict who still suffers.  My superpowers are building trust and showing compassion to give my clients the opportunity to heal. Through my one-on-one consultations, I help addicts navigate the trenches and the mountaintops of their lives to live fulfilling lives of responsibility, consciousness and holistic authenticity. I am in the exciting throws of publishing my first book with Gavin Joackims Publishing:


There are many reasons why I do what I do.  Firstly, I don’t want addicts to feel alone, misunderstood, abandoned and rejected and to choose self-destructive behaviours because they don’t have the tools to cope with emotional pain.  Lastly, I wake each morning believing I am called to do this work - to help addicts to come out of the darkness of addiction and into the light of recovery.

Outside of the office, my kids are my most excellent teachers, and my darling husband helps to keep me well nourished, loved and humble.  On the cusp of being halfway to 90 years old I enjoy biodanza and tennis.

Brene Brown Tedtalk sensation and Jordan Petersen, the Canadian psychoanalyst, are my crushes and mentors.  I admire their no-nonsense approach and authentically sharing of themselves.

NQOBILE NKOSI  – Founder & CEO, Divine E Image Consultancy
I am a banker by profession and after 17 years in the corporate space, I decided to focus on my business and brand Divine Elegance Image Consultancy.

I have trained in image consulting and makeup and these are the services offered by Divine E.

I also love to give back to others and have supported, mentored and trained some young ladies from the township in Soweto by providing makeup skills to allow them to empower themselves and make meaningful contributions in their homes.

More about Nqobile ...

Being a public speaker, I am passionate about speaking to and motivating women and the youth. I have had the humbling opportunity to speak alongside Deborah Patta, formerly of 3rd Degree on eTV where I spoke to executives on personal branding.

I also have a strong passion for supporting other women-owned businesses and always make it a point to purchase from them and refer others where I’ve received good service and products. That’s my contribution to helping create a better world.

My company, Divine Elegance was birthed in 2008 from a desire to meet the needs of today’s modern women. It started as a part-time hobby and through customer demand soon evolved into a thriving business, being formally registered in 2014.

In a society so fast paced, where women consider everyone else’s needs before their own, the obvious result is that across the board almost all women agree, self-neglect is an overall problem.  This self-neglect comes with a high price tag attached to it; loss of confidence, feeling not good enough, low self-esteem and sometimes even problematic relationships.

With the knowledge that we are our own personal brands, and the significance of confidence and self-worth, I have made it my personal mission to make every woman I come into contact with feel beautiful within and, through skills, improve personal presence.

Teaching women to look after their appearance is from where I draw my energy and motivation.  Watching women transform themselves by changing their mindset, and the way they care for themselves, is my passion.
