Audreia Josephs is the guest in this episode of DOZ Show. She 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. Her own life experiences and her professional training helped form the basis of her strategy as a passionate life coach, and her powerful work around the United Kingdom has gained her an audience around the world – in particular amongst ‘women in prisons’. She 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). She was also able to accompany a group of her students to the Commonwealth Games in 2004, where she had the pleasure of meeting Their Royal Highnesses 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. In recognition of her efforts, she was honoured to receive the Womanhood Global Recognition Best Authors Award in the same year. Listen as Audreia shares her journey, which although filled with the pain of abuse, rejection, betrayal, shame and disappointment has turned out to be a fairytale with a happily ever after. Be inspired to rise from the ashes.

Ebony Kay English is the guest in this episode of DOZ Show. She has transitioned from substance abuse to a woman of substance. For twelve years, she self-medicated with alcohol. It was the only way she knew to numb the pain and unworthiness she felt. She says that she would attempt to drown out her pain with alcohol, but her pain learned to swim and would still be there day after day until she finally decided to stop running and face herself and her problem. It was the 24th of January 2015 and she was awakened by her then 7-year-old son; he was standing in her vomit, crying and asking, “mommy were you sick last night?” It hurt her to have her son witness one of her many hangovers and dark moments, but she knew it was just what she needed to finally face the repressed emotions and pain that had learned to swim no matter how much alcohol she had tried to drown it with. Now, after five years of sobriety and discovering her authentic self, Ebony says that it is okay to not drink. Listen and be inspired to transform your life. Yes, you can!
Dr Ava Eagle Brown is the guest in this episode of DOZ Show. Ava’s early life was spent in poor rural Jamaica. As a young child, she was not regular at school because of the need to work for food instead. Her inner strength carried her through adolescence when she experienced incest and sexual abuse. As a young adult, she was raped at gunpoint, which caused her to flee Jamaica. She could have settled for being a victim of her painful past, but Ava chose to turn her pain into purpose and become her own warrior and hero. Armed with determination and courage, she rose from the ashes to become a resilient, strong and self-reliant woman. She is reaching back to help others find their purpose, and get unstuck from their limiting beliefs, so that they can live their best lives. She has coached entrepreneurs, CEOs, and business leaders, and has spoken words of inspiration and change to audiences in the US, Jamaica, Poland, Ireland, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Africa. In this interview, Ava shares her journey and inspires us for more.
