What is JivaYou?
Jiva means “unique identity” in the ancient language of Sanskrit. Our name JivaYou means "your unique identity”. Our vision is to help you to unlock your potential and realise your life purpose.
JivaYou's founders have drawn upon a lifetime of experience in therapy, coaching and spirituality to develop a practical psychology that is based upon the seven types described in Psychosynthesis Typology.
Our system begins by helping you to identify your Personality Type. We also offer a more complex typology that describes how we are each made up of psychological qualities that are expressed through the five levels of body, emotion, thought, personality and essence (or soul). Indeed, rather than being one type, you will discover you are a combination of types at five levels, with each level having its own potential for development.
Our profiling will provide you new information about yourself by offering a description of your unique psychological DNA, which refers to the qualities, motivations and potential that influence how you live, work, relate to others and fulfil your life purpose.
Our approach differs from other typologies in that we are able to offer a highly detailed and comprehensive personal profiling that draws upon both modern psychology and ancient wisdom.
Our motto is: We love types – all types!
The better you know your typology, the more equipped you will be to apply specific methods to help develop your potential and become the best possible version of who you are.
