About Brenda and Beautiful Life:
Combining my own personal experience and those of my clients, I realise that we as women need to learn how to tap into our inner power and beauty in order for us to truly value and love ourselves as unique individuals. This inspired me to start a home-based beauty studio and Image Coaching business to help ladies to discover themselves and find the courage to reveal their tremendous potential to others.
I am extremely passionate about sharing my experience and knowledge with others in the hope that I can inspire all South African women to rise up using their gentle feminine POWER, which in turn enables not only themselves but also others around them, to live a life of purpose.

It was only much later in life that I realised the importance of a good education. To this end I studied at UNISA and completed a National Higher Diploma in Public Relations (2010).
Since 2003 I have dedicated my life to helping people with addictions and currently facilitate the 12 Step Recovery Programme.
In 2014 I registered a company called The Linen Den – I am a sole Proprietor.

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
MORE ABOUT LEIGH JOY ...
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.

Maleburu Ramara is a Brain Lupus survivor, Speaker, a certified Personal Trainer, Yoga Instructor, Group Fitness Instructor, Sports Nutritionist, Alternative Weightloss teacher, Silent Meditation teacher and Mind Body Nutrition coach and consultant.
When she was attacked by Lupus Illness in 2013, with her savings finished and unemployed, she had to rent her house and sell her car. When Mali was attacked by Lupus for the third time, she became depressed and gained 15kg. For two years she gave lots of reasons why she could not exercise and eat healthily. Reasons ranging from “I don’t have money to join the gym”, “I don’t have enough money to buy healthy food”, “what if I start exercising and Lupus flares up again”, “my room is too small for exercise” …
Mali decided to exercise for 10 minutes while watching television and ate whatever was clean and healthy and affordable. A year later, Lupus illness was on remission and she was no longer depressed. Mali exercises 1-2 hours a day inside her room or outside, resulting in her losing weight. She started home-based Personal training in the comfort of her clients’ own homes.
Based on available space, fitness level, injuries and health condition, she uses bodyweight, resistant band, dumb-bells, stairs and gym equipment, if the client has a gym. Her clients are women over 40 and young men. Being elected to the Top 10 Women’s Health Next Fitness Star has given Mali the platform to pursue her goal to empower her clients to find out what works best for them with exercise and nutrition.
In 2018 Mali also ventured into an online training business using Facebook and Instagram, and well as becoming a Speaker to share her story of surviving Brain Lupus and how she uses the Mind Body Nutrition approach to live a healthy normal life and run a successful business.

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.

In 1995 Pat left her full time employment in the corporate world as PA to a Financial Director to run her full time practice in Gauteng South Africa, as a Registered Therapeutic Reflexologist with the Allied Health Professions Council of SA. Pat is the author of her book “Eight Steps to a New You” that was launched in December 2009.
Pat was Chairperson of the North West Branch of the South African Reflexology Society for five years and was then elected onto the Executive Committee for five years.
She has written articles for The Citizen, The Beeld, The Caxton Newspaper Group, Internet sites such as Health24, Woman24, various magazines and has been interviewed by ITV television, SABC2, 702 Radio, SAFM, RSG and one of DSTV Audio Indian radio channels.
Pat was diagnosed with depression after the death of her brother in 1977, and was told she had to be on medication for the rest of her life. In 1992 she found out that she had breast cancer and had a double mastectomy. Pat had a major breakdown and through the counselling of a great Reflexologist she came off all her medication very, very, slowly and because of what Reflexology did for her she then studied to become a Therapeutic Reflexologist. Now she lives a great life from all that she has experienced and learnt. Pat helps and guides people to a better life filled with health and happiness.
Because of her dealings with depression, she ran the West Rand Depression and Anxiety support Group for a number of years. She also does motivational talks and workshops for groups and companies from a health perspective.
