Our journey started...
With a mothers inspiration. Over 35 years ago Jean first recognised the benefits of unlocking hidden talents & abilities when she started questioning the pattern her life was following and why. For Jean it was a rewarding time of self-refelection and re-discovery.
She started to look at her life from a Holistic viewpoint. It set the course for personal and professional development Jean gained qualifications in:
Psychology for Counselling
Client Psychology and Motivation
Advanced Diploma in Nutrition/Weight Management
BA in Applied Social Studies.
Jean quickly recognised that everyone has their own individual potential. She synthesised her own varies life skills with positive empowering techniques the outcome was: interactive workshops and her own unique holistic coaching format.
When Jean invited her daughter Jodie to work with her when she was coaching a foster carer going through a difficult time, she never realised the results would be so beneficial. Or that it would be the beginning of an exciting new direction. She did know the next steps had to include the expertise of both her daughters.
A holistic approach to wellbeing was something they were all passionate about and this is why together they founded The Aurora, Beauty, Health & Wellbeing Studio. They combined skills and created a relaxing, friendly, safe environment that offers a complete range of beauty - holistic treatments to help you look and feel your best + wellbeing coaching to enhance a more balanced lifestyle. To work together doing something they all enjoy and that grows with them is something Jean, Jodie & Jade continually find inspiring and uplifting.
The development of Aurora started 10 years ago and it continues to grow from strength to strength today. With New treatments continually added, new training opportunities, and a great team all working together to build a good client relationship & to provide a unique holistic service where the whole person feels nurtured.
Jodie always knew what she wanted to do, even as a child she enjoyed helping others feel good about themselves. She knew her chosen field of work and started her journey by building her knowledge base and skills via gaining qualifications and working in a variety of settings to gain experience & create an impressive professional portfolio.
She has developed many of her own therapies and has incorporated training into Aurora. Jodie was the inspiration behind 'Sparkles 'Aurora's Glitter Bar where children and adults both enjoy getting their sparkle on!
