Jodi Bryant is the founder, executive director, and clinical supervisor at LifeChange Coaching, Counselling & Consulting Inc. With a career spanning decades, Jodi's journey in the public sector has been marked by her dedication to education and counseling.

Jodi's passion for teaching and counselling was evident from a young age, and her dream since the age of 9 was to become a teacher and help students affected by childhood trauma. Her dedication and commitment led her to receive the coveted President’s Entrance Scholarship, opening the doors to her teaching career. She earned a Bachelor of Education degree with a focus on psychology and music, laying the foundation for her future endeavors.

Recognizing the need for deeper healing and personal development in individuals, Jodi transitioned into the role of an executive coach. However, her thirst for knowledge and a genuine desire to help people on a holistic level led her to pursue a master's degree in counselling psychology. Her work was published. This academic pursuit equipped her with the tools to address the body, soul, and spirit, enabling her to offer comprehensive support to those in need. Additionally, Jodi's commitment to her spiritual journey led her to achieve excellence in ordination, a significant accomplishment that took years of dedication and study.

Jodi's credentials include being a Certified Executive Life Coach and a Certified Coach Practitioner, showcasing her expertise in coaching and counselling. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts in pastoral ministry and is a Certified Professional Counsellor/Supervisor, further underscoring her commitment to helping individuals on their healing journey.

Under Jodi's leadership, LifeChange has thrived. What started as a volunteer coaching initiative has grown into a successful enterprise, achieving six-figure revenue over the years. Jodi's dedication to education, speaking engagements, and sharing her knowledge and gifts has made a positive impact on countless lives. She firmly believes in using her talents to bring hope, encouragement, and restoration to those she serves.

LifeChange Coaching, Counselling & Consulting Inc. was established in 2008 in Saskatoon. Operating from their own residence, which is an Approved Mental Health and Addictions home, they provide a unique environment where they live with five patients/residents. The organization collaborates with churches, communities, clinics, businesses, colleges, and organizations to offer professional counselling, certified coaching, and clinical supervision services. Notably, LifeChange contributes to various community initiatives, including their own charity.

LifeChange services are entirely referral-based, and their charity operates on a volunteer basis, with no one making a profit. With a dedicated team of 50+ volunteers, many of whom have overcome their own challenges, they provide vital support for individuals dealing with issues such as alcoholism, chemical dependency, abuse, eating disorders, sexual issues, trauma, childhood adversity, divorce, grief, and various spiritual, mental, and emotional concerns. They extend their support to individuals, families, couples, groups, youth, and children.

Jodi's recent partnership with Josephine Rwankuba reflects her commitment to expanding the reach of LifeChange. She has found a trusted collaborator who shares her vision of helping people achieve holistic health: body, soul, and spirit. Jodi continues to be an influencer, a servant leader, and a lifelong learner, dedicating her life to making a difference in the lives of others through education, counselling, and coaching.
