Meet Jean-Francois

Jean-Francois Benoist is the creator of the leading-edge counseling methodologies: Core Belief Restructuring and Experiential Engagement Therapy. Jean-Francois also co-founded The Exclusive Addiction Treatment Center on The Big Island of Hawaii in 2011 with his wife, Joyce Marvel-Benoist.

After implementing the Core Belief Restructuring™ method successfully as the key methodology at The Exclusive’s residential recovery program, mental health professionals started to reach out to Francois, because they wanted to learn more about this innovative approach for shifting one’s negative mindset.

He then began leading continuing education workshops for mental health professionals, delivering speaking engagements, and working with executives on learning how to apply the skills of Core Belief Restructuring (CBR).

Francois shares, “I am deeply blessed to impart this work with others as I have been very fortunate to work with some great people. And I’m so grateful to be able to pass along this work.”

“We enjoyed Mr. Benoist so much that we have invited him back to continue his in-depth work with our program participants.”

Clinical Director, Habilitat Center Honolulu, HI

“Maybe because this gentleman is incredibly articulate and truly owns this wisdom, or maybe it’s the engaging force of delivery with humor and heart that grabbed my full attention, but I believe I had more ‘aha moments’ with Jean-François than most all my ‘journeys’ put together. I suppose I might say since that training I really did learn to laugh more, live more and love more.”

Core Belief Restructuring

Core Belief Restructuring (CBR) is an experiential methodology that looks to address the deepest-seeded thoughts we have about ourselves and others. Once we learn how to become aware of these core beliefs, we can change them – in turn, shifting our entire mindset about how we view hardships in our lives.
