Audreia Josephs is a life coach and motivational speaker who specialises in the “Art of Forgiveness” – a philosophy that envisions life as a journey of release and reconnection.
Trained as a counsellor at the University of Central England (UCE), her professional experience as a counsellor, with the Samaritans, and her own personal experiences have led her to develop a keen interest in the empowerment of self and others.
Through workshops and one-to-one sessions, Audreia’s Josephs Art of Forgiveness is a methodology that guides students to recognize negative habits developed by holding onto life traumas. Her own life experiences and her professional training helped form the basis of her strategy as a passionate Life Coach, and she focuses on using these experiences to help her students find freedom from their past.
Her powerful work around the United Kingdom has gained her an audience around the world – in particular amongst ‘women in prisons’. With her specialism of family support, Audreia Josephs has supported projects such as the Values Education for Life, Prison Link, the Rose Project Birmingham, and Action for Prisoners and Families (set up through the Princess Diana Memorial Trust).
Her career highlights include having been featuring on Radio West Midlands, BBC Radio, and a full page write up in the Voice newspaper. She was also able to escort a group of her students to the Commonwealth Games in 2004, where she had the pleasure of meeting HRH The Earl & Countess of Wessex, and Terry Waite, the former US Envoy.
In 2016, Audreia released her first book, Forgiveness, The Journey to Healing the Heart. A biography of her life experiences, it explores the journey of growing up as a mentally, emotionally, and physically abused child in the Black Britain of the 1960s, 70s, & 80s. In recognition of her efforts, she was honoured to receive the Womenhood Global Recognition Best Authors Award in the same year.
