About Us

DiscoverYourPathU, LLC (‘DYPU’) is a learning platform and style that is unique and highly personalized.  We believe that every life can teach and everyone can grow, so we have created a product that caters to those learners who dare to be authentic.  It doesn’t matter if you are a student, instructor, seeker or social butterfly… DYPU welcomes you and has something to offer you.

This community and learning platform are the response to an obvious need.  All of the members of the Board of Directors are multiple-modality practitioners who have travelled in “helper” circles over the years.  Be they Karuna Reiki Masters, NLP practitioners, PhDs, hypnotists, empaths and/or life coaches, each has longed for a learning community that celebrates, welcomes and caters to authenticity.

At DYPU, we believe that there is no helper, student, coach, teacher and/or seeker more powerful than the one who is following his or her own path. Like the Knights of the Round Table, we have entered the forest where it is darkest, with no visible path.   We are not following in the footsteps of another, but, instead, blazing our own trail, on our own terms. This dedication to our own authenticity is an integral key to making the most profound and lasting impact in our own lives and the lives of others.

More than anything, we want you to be who you are.  Not a carbon copy or replica, but an original work of art who is consciously and profoundly aware of your uniqueness and your worth. That is where your power is. There are no individual gurus here. The community is the guru, and you are a part of the community.

So join us. Walk with us. Learn with us. Grow with us. Let us teach you to expect more.

At DiscoverYourPathU we believe that every life can teach, and everyone can grow.

Hello!  My name is Sharon Frochen and I am a member of the #zenten, Chief Operating Officer and faculty at Discover Your Path U.  I am the founder and owner of The Phoenix Reboot, the creator of the Foolprooof Freedom workshop series, co-creator of the Divine Shenanigans Soul Sense Panel, and co-creator of The Journey Beyond Pain workshop series.  I am a multi-modality practitioner, combining applied psychology and spirituality into a new intuitive practice.

I specialize in presence.  I specialize in the mind tweaks of NLP, the vocal sorcery of hypnosis and meditation/journeying, a wealth of ancient wisdom, and guided energy work.  I believe that each of us are profoundly powerful technology, with a user manual that has been largely lost to us over the ages. It is possible to reconnect to that manual.  Literally, the world is ours for the thinking.

Each of us can reboot.  Each of us can rise from the ashes of our former selves.  Each of us can evolve.

My name is Jeffrey, and I help restless achievers identify the knowledge, skills, and beliefs they need to live a life of fulfillment and make a meaningful impact.

I am an open learning and nonprofit capacity building consultant, self-empowerment coach, professor, learning designer, educational researcher, and Wikipedian. I have 20 years of experience supporting and inspiring people to identify their learning needs, develop a personalized strategy for meeting them, and create an evaluation plan to assess success and satisfaction.

I believe many people struggle to find themselves and lead fulfilling lives because they are boxed into trying to meet the expectations other people in society set for them. In response, I strive to help people march to the beat of their own drum and celebrate their own paths, whatever that looks like, if it helps them to believe in themselves and move forward.

Sometimes we have to unlearn before we can really thrive!

I’m a Confidence Coach primarily for people who need clarity because they’re at a crossroads in the personal or professional lives. I work with artists, writers, life coaches, teachers and people whose minds are full of big ideas, but no direction.  My programs help people conquer their limiting beliefs and push past perceived obstacles in their lives and businesses.

My mission is to help people find confidence through creativity and conversation.  I teach people strategies and techniques to get clear about what they really want so they can get more accomplished to build the life of their dreams.  Most of my clients struggle with the isolation of being “solopreneurs.” So I become their partner in the process, working alongside them, holding them accountable and celebrating as their success builds and confidence grows.

Samantha Dee CTO

‘Ello! I’m Sammy Dee, a founding member and CTO at DYPU. I put a twenty-year I.T. career on the back-burner, to become a qualified Body Image & Self Esteem Coach. As well as Life Coaching, I am also a Mindfulness Master with additional studies in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Counselling.

I am passionate about women reclaiming their bodies and ditching the dieting farce – to get out of that hole and live their lives, without all that crap. So passionate, in fact, that I wrote a book entitled ‘My Big Fat…Fat’ and have a cookery series, soon the sequel, ‘My Big Fat…Kitchen’.

Since I have a head for tech, I answered my #calling2excellence and stepped up as CTO and part of DYPU Business School, along with my exemplary colleagues. If you’re heading in that direction, we will be able to take care of you right up to that first client – from confidence, branding, authenticity and the nitty-gritty tech stuff.

I also bring the funny, I won’t lie. See you on the inside!
