A Typical Day At the Office...

  • The pressure and deadlines are constant, another business solution to present.  How will the client react? You need to nail the brief, and win new accounts, but lately you've been feeling more overwhelmed, anxious and jittery.  
  • You're staring at a blank page and putting things off -  is this a sign your creative flow is drying up?!" Who can you share this with? No one. You fill the emotional space with comfort food - chocolate, more coffee and junk food.
  • An anxious thought. "Can I repeat my past successes?" In this business  you're only as good as your last award winning campaign.  But you're so tired. You've been sleeping badly. How long can you keep pulling all nighters?
  • The client's being difficult. The creative team are being difficult. So many different egos and personalities to manage. Sometimes you feel like their mother! Why's everyone questioning your business decision and leadership style? 
  • You're in the dog-house at home (again). Lately all you do is argue with your partner and the kids. You're parents are getting old, they need your attention too. Forget about about any 'Me Time' - the gym, your passion for cycling, and cooking that recipe you saw on TV. 
  • Lets face it, your work life balance is NOT balancing. Does anyone care OR appreciate how hard you’re working to keep them happy?

But it doesn't have to be that way...

Joy Langley

Author, Coach, Speaker & Psychotherapist 

I've had many jobs in my life ...but I wasn't living up to my full potential or exploiting my creative streak. Following bouts of anxiety, depression & stress, I remember thinking - there's something wrong with me. "How comes other people seem to cope? Why the hell didn't someone at school teach me how to de-stress?"

I got to thinking, there must be a better way to manage the anxiety, overwhelm and depression stealing my happiness.  A quest to solve this led to a 15 year career as a coach, psychotherapist, and more recently author.

Life taught me a lot. Especially the top  psychological strategies I use today with  creative business owners and creatives to help  them better navigate  stress. 

Why Choose JOY ?


I have over 15years of coaching and psychotherapy training. I  partner with clients to reduce their stress & anxiety. Stress is the tip of the iceberg. Underneath are issues of identity,  belief systems, loss of self-esteem, self-confidence, bereavement, loss, change and more.


I use frameworks that can be tailored to your unique situation. Cutting edge research from the field of neuroscience and psychology. Everything I share is doable and actionable. BUT I promise jargon! I only do things that are fun and human-friendly.

deeper levels of work

We can work together at what ever level you life is at for set periods (sprints). But deeper levels and extended periods of work are possible at any point during our time together.  You can also suggest topics you want to focus on.


You can work at a pace you enjoy. I know you are busy and life can change, so I am flexible. There is no such thing as 'falling' behind - only falling forwards. Everything happens - at the right time


Videos and reading material are specially selected for you.

Book Reviews

 Joy writes with humour and passion a step by step account of what stress is, why we get it and more importantly what we can do about it. It has practical applications and exercises to try, and Joy uses her own experiences to help the reader understand and gain insight

Kiren K

 For someone who is not too much into self help books, this book was such a game changer. It is very refreshing how Joy, the author of this book tells you what could be the possible root causes with a tailored action plan


  The way that she explains the chemical processes are both fascinating and digestible to those of us, who like me have no formal education in human biology. It has had profound impact on the way that I look at myself and others behaviours in real time as I delve deeper into the mystery that is the human mind.
