“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing you will be successful“
Albert Schweitzer
2B Well Philosophy
2B Well philosophy is based on inspiration from Leena’s mother Rita who believed “that the individual is a complete unit comprised of mind, body, spirit and soul and that by balancing these elements together with environment and lifestyle creates harmony, optimizes health and happiness and allows inherent vital forces to promote healing”.
2B Well practice focuses on supporting the self discovery journey to living a healthy happy lifestyle creating wellness for life. The solution based coaching approach to wellness encourages YOU – the individual to:
  • Balance and integrate YOUR physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being
  • Establish respectful, co-operative relations with others and the environment
  • Make wellness orientated lifestyle choices to bring dreams into reality
  • Actively participate in YOUR health decisions to create and maintain health and happiness
2B Well Principles
There are 5 principles that guide the journey of health and happiness 2B Well:
  • The healing power of nature: At 2B Well, we acknowledge the body has the ability to create, maintain and restore health and happiness by promoting the inherent vital force present within the human frame.
  • Identify the root: 2B Well works with you to identify any factors of imbalance of life. Imbalance can represent itself in the wheel of health in the mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, environmental, lifestyle realms or more commonly a combination of these elements. Time is spent in discovery of these elements to identify needs.
  • First do no harm: Your coaching program comprises agreed upon goals driven by you - the client that do no harm, are complementary and synergistic with the body’s natural healing process and use strategies that promote the healing power of nature.
  • The whole person: Integrative health views the individual as a whole person and recognizes that the human being is comprised of and affected by the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, environmental, genetics and socially, by a unique combination of these elements. As such, each individual or group requires a customized regime to ensure optimal health and happiness in life and business are achieved and maintained.
  • Coach as Facilitator: Your coach believes the coaching relationship in itself is of therapeutic value within the health and happiness continuum. Your coach plays an important role to guide and encourage you to take responsibility for your health and happiness, working together to bring your determined goals into reality. An evidence inspired approach (EIP) provides a landscape for you to create and accomplish your own health and happiness, your coach is a guide along the path offering inspiration, hope, understanding and spirituality. Like all good facilitators your guide is committed to ongoing development, personally, professionally and spiritually.
2B Well Life Story ​
A young girl age 7 was informed by a leading Immunologist in arguably one of the top teaching hospitals that her mother had “an aggressive form of Lupus and was not likely to live beyond the age of 40 due to complications”…..the necessary treatment was a combination of cortico-steroids and antidepressant drugs. In an era without internet, google or wikipedia – it took 4 years for the young girl to understand the meaning of those very few words, helped by neighbors taking her to libraries, and families who took care of her, while the mother was hospitalized due to pain and immobility for months at a time over the next few years.
As she continued to gather information from magazines, articles and knowledge of alternatives, a journey ensued for the next 6 years where mother and daughter received all the “alternative therapies” the daughter could find. Gemstone therapy, faith healing, 30 day naturopathic fasting at a health hydro, herbal remedies, homeopathy, acupuncture, ayurveda, yoga, meditation, naturopathy, osteopathy, bodywork, hypnosis, oxygen therapy and more….while still under the care of a cadre of physicians. Ultimately their home became lay apothecary, stacks of drawers labelled A-Z of natural remedies; to ease pain and promote optimal health. In time the mother through reading and cultural origins became so well versed in homeopathy and naturopathy she was admired by those physicians for her knowledge, instinct to heal others and overwhelming positive spirituality focused on creating happiness.
Two things followed the young girl departed from her early desire of being an engineer designing bridges, dedicating her teens to facilitate the pursuit of her mother to be well and then studied a number of the modalities and professions she experienced as a child. During the first 25 years of practice the daughter focused on supporting the integration of both the medical and natural therapy worlds, optimizing wellness, health conscious lifestyle changes and facilitating dreams into reality. The mother Rita passed away at 70, her spirit still watches over the daughter Leena as she honors the journey through educating professionals in integrative medicine, channeling the unrelenting spiritual strength of her mother to triumph against the odds, helping others to reach their peak performance in all areas of life – in short her mothers’ life then and now represents her lifes’ work and passion.
