The Whole Story
Crystal Andrus Morissette is a worldwide leader in the field of self-discovery and personal transformation. She has risen to become a four-time best-selling author, beloved Master Empowerment Coach, international speaker, TV personality, Emotional Age Expert, and founder of The S.W.A.T. Institute (Simply Woman Accredited Trainer)–an international coaching certification school, exclusively for women. Her magazine, SimplyWoman.com, is a pub for all things woman! Her next book “The Emotional Edge” (Harmony Imprint – a division of Random House Publishing) will be out December 29th, 2015 and it will be her greatest accomplishment to date.
Certified by the American College of Sports Medicine and Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, Crystal built the world-renowned coaching school–The S.W.A.T. Institute, the only non-denominational coaching program in the world, exclusively for women. Students from all ages, all over the world, are pursuing their dream while joining Crystal’s global coalition for women.
As a personal coach to people from all walks of life—including A-list celebrities, medical doctors, artists, musicians, scientists, psychologists, and other best-selling authors and coaches, as well as regular people in need—Crystal’s passion is to climb down in the trenches to help those who are ready and willing to become the (s)heroes of their own lives.
Crystal’s personal story is the perfect backdrop to become a voice for the next era of the women’s movement. She has overcome insurmountable odds to create a life of joy and purpose. From a tough beginning—her parents turbulent divorce at age 12, a stranger rape at 14, extended sexual abuse from a family friend, moving out at 15, battling the early stages of cervical cancer at only 17, suffering a traumatic head injury at age 20 that left her to deal with seizures, marrying young and gaining over 80 pounds in her pregnancies, then struggling through a difficult divorce and near bankruptcy before becoming a single mother to two beautiful girls (one who nearly lost her own life in 2010)—Crystal has dedicated her life to helping women transcend their victimhood, martyrdom, and self-limiting beliefs, fears, and patterns.
She initially self-published her first book, “Simply . . . Woman!” in 2003. The international self-help book publisher, Hay House Publishing, immediately picked it up. Crystal trademarked the name “Simply . . . Woman!” to be used for The S.W.A.T. Institute (Simply Woman Accredited Trainer), along with other licensing opportunities such “S.W.A.Y. (Simply Woman Accredited Yoga)”, “Simply Woman Skincare”, “Simply Woman Cosmetics & Fragrance”, “Simply Woman Supplements”, “Simply Woman Organic Candles”, “Simply Woman Clothing Line”, etc.
Crystal’s book, “Simply . . . Woman!” was a blockbuster success in 2005, coming in at #14 as the “Reader’s Choice” at “Chapters”, “Indigo”, and “Coles” across Canada (40,000 readers were polled).
Her second book, “Transcendent Beauty!” (Hay House Publishing – 2006) cracked open her speaking and TV career, where Crystal became the life coach on “CTV’s Canada AM” on a weekly segment called “Shaping Up for Stardom”.
In 2007, she became the life coach and nutritionist on the hit TV show, “X-Weighted” (seen in 15 countries). Crystal would go into the homes of overweight people who were struggling for a breakthrough with their weight loss. In her loving but laser-quick approach, she could effortlessly crack through denial, making her a constant audience favorite—three of her episodes won a “Gemini” for best documentary series (Canadian TV’s highest award).
Her third book, “Simply . . . EMPOWERED!” (Hay House Publishing – 2010) was declared “one of this year’s must-reads” by New York Times best-selling author, Debbie Ford. New York Times bestselling author, Eldon Taylor said, “Crystal Andrus has an honest, no-nonsense, straightforward approach that can absolutely liberate you.” And bestselling author, Dr. Carol Ritberger wrote, “Writing a book that commands universal attention is not readily achieved. Writing a book that truly impacts lives is not commonplace. Writing a book that defines the character of the human spirit, as lived and documented in Simply . . . EMPOWERED! by Crystal Andrus, is life changing. If you read just one book this year to strengthen your personal resolve, make it this one.
Crystal’s recent book, The Emotional Edge, is in a category of writing all of its own. Already being heralded as the practical new psychology it has helped thousands of women, couples, and families all over the world! www.TheEmotionalEdge.com
Nominated for the past five years in a row by the “Royal Bank of Canada” as “Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneur”, Crystal is just as passionate about the business behind the business. In 2010, she built the “Harvard” of coaching schools, inviting guest faculty members such as Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson, Colette Baron-Reid, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Sandra Anne Taylor, and Gregg Braden to also share their work.
Touring with “The Power Within” and “I Can Do It® Hay House Events” has allowed Crystal to share the stage with some of today’s most influential people, including Dr. Phil, Louise Hay, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Suze Orman, Sarah Ferguson—the Duchess of York, and many others. Crystal has appeared on Oprah.com, the New York Post, Fox TV, the Daily Mail, CBS Radio, CTV, CityTV, Global TV, Slice TV, the Globe and Mail, and the Toronto Star.
Crystal lives in a grand old farmhouse in a tiny town in southern Ontario with her amazingly supportive husband, two magnificent daughters, three fabulous furry friends, bunny, and a flock of singing canaries. In a nutshell, as one client described Crystal so perfectly: She has a bohemian wonder business woman spirit!
