When you spend 2 hours every day in Jean's company, you tend to get to know who you are on a very deep level. My experience with Jean was life changing. I was able to break through many myths that I believed about myself. I moved house in a matter of days, after years of being stuck. I am freeing myself from old patterns, I've started writing and expressing myself. The process Jean uses in Mapping Your Life, is gentle, yet firm. She has an uncanny way of listening to all the things we try to hide, and then revealing them, along with the solutions! She is endlessly patient, encouraging and supportive. I found myself astonished, uncomfortable, crying and then laughing.
Not only have I released so many blocks I have made a life-long friend and mentor.
I am so grateful you came into my life, Jean. You are a treasure!

I had been 'working on myself' for almost 5 years since I started my personal development journey in earnest. But I felt stuck and knew I needed help in shifting to the next level. During working with Jean Hamilton-Fford through her Map Your Life program, not only did I laugh and cry (a lot for me), but I also blasted away the many limiting beliefs that were keeping me playing small.
Jean has a magical way of helping you tap into the power of your soul, which already knows all about your unlimited potential. By guiding and holding the space for me to feel into my unlimited potential, as well as supporting me in planning for my future self, I now have a soulprint of my life and business. This is by far the best education and soul healing I’ve ever experienced in my more than half century.
I have to admit the commitment felt too much before I began, but by the end of each session I was eagerly looking forward to the next. Jean is the mentor I wish I had by my side through life. She is a wise sister crone goddess, a confidant and dear friend. I will be forever grateful our paths crossed in this lifetime.
Thank you so much Jean... I love you sister!

Before I met Jean I wandered through the darkness, occasionally there were streaks of brilliance that lit up my hemisphere, but they were fleeting and the blackness fused back together as swiftly as they shot through it, absorbing their glittering trails absolutely with its suffocating density. I did not know how to breathe, and although I knew the light was somewhere out there, I could not find its source. Jean’s was the light that lit my way until I see it for myself, and now that I have been shown a way out of the darkness, I can see my own light reflected in the brilliance of hers.
In the few short months I have known Jean, she has become a true friend, teacher, counselor and my guide along a path I have been searching for all my life. At the age of 42, I have been in some kind of therapy or other since I was about 11. I sought help in so many guises, and each time with hope that maybe this time, it would work and I would find a therapist, or a counselor who would help me – save me from the darkness, show me the light and a way to be in it – to change things and make the world the wonderful place that instinctively I knew it had the potential to be – each time clinging to the ebbing hope, someday I would finally find the person who would help me find happiness, who would show me how to keep the looming shadows at bay, to once and for all cage the beast that hounded me, lying in wait, for any opportunity to drag me back into the abyss.
Jean did something for me that no one else has been able to do; she didn’t give me a fish, when I was starving – she taught me how to fish so that when hunger strikes I can feed myself. She didn’t rescue me from the darkness, she taught me how to rescue myself so that I could finally throw off the shroud, it would cloak me in, should I give it an opportunity to do so. Sometimes I stumble – like a child learning to walk, I am discovering how to balance, enthralled by the wonder of a life filled with light and joy. When these momentary lapses occur, Jean’s gentle, loving and supportive presence steadies me, as she walks beside me – a luminous constant in the ever-changing landscape of my reality, and my life today.
Jean is the teacher who appeared when this student was ready. I would say that Jean is a light in the darkness, but since I met her there hasn’t been much of it. My hemisphere is becoming incandescent, and the occasional streaks of darkness that shoot through it, combust almost instantaneously, fueling the light that consumes them. Namaste Jean Hamilton-Fford, you are a blessing in my life, and in the lives of those whose paths cross yours, our hemispheres serendipitously enlightened by the glow cast by your infinite, limitless light, and loving, healing energy.

I began my sessions with Jean feeling lost, directionless and desperate. Every session featured tears as she supported me in shedding layers of fear, doubt, and anguish. We explored new landscapes, shared wisdom old and new, and she gently led me forward or out of the darkness back toward the light.
My major challenge prior to working with Jean was lack of self-worth in all areas of my life.
The biggest change has been increased confidence, a calmer sense of peace, increased trust in myself and the world and a renewed sense of creativity.
If you want to work with Jean, know that she is a magical maven with Super Powers to unlock secrets you never knew you were hiding.

Before working with Jean, I lacked clarity and focus. I tend to get a whole bunch of ideas and then get myself confused and end up doing nothing!
Working with Jean, I had accountability - so I needed to have worked on at least some of the suggestions/ideas/input that she gave me. I definitely focused on more manageable tasks. As well as enjoying things like 'everything is easy' being a favourite quote of hers, I enjoyed her sense of humour, insight and honesty!
The most important thing about working with Jean is to take notes so you can go back over the conversation. She makes it clear that it is all up to the individual to take action! She provides the prompts, shares ideas and inspiration but the individual has to take the actions.

Before working with Jean, my biggest challenge was that I felt broken as a soul and that I would always feel that way. And then, of course, my constant lack of self-belief when it came to building my business!
Since working with Jean, I have come to believe that feeling 'broken' doesn't mean that I am not whole. That I already AM whole and perfect as I am. I believe in myself, my confidence has grown, my first 1500 greeting cards have been printed and are selling in various shops now. I know that Jean believes in me and it has made all the difference in my attitude towards myself.
The most important thing you need to know about Jean?! I don't think there is 'A' most important thing. Jean believes in me, my heart and soul. I never doubted that through our year of working together.
She truly wishes for all people an incredible life full of juiciness and magic. She sometimes knew me better than myself and has guided me through a year of immense rough changes in my life. She has been my rock in stormy seas through that time and taught me how to be my own rock, too.
She was like an Angel, gently presenting herself to me when I needed it the most. Like a friend, a mother, a gentle but, when I needed it, tough guiding soul.
She was there to remind me when I had forgotten about my own light and I will be forever grateful for her wisdom, her persistence, her trust in me, her skills and love for me as a fellow soul. Not enough words, other than THANK YOU to a truly blessed helper of many.
