Olga Kniazeva, PhD

Prior to joining ThroughConversation™, Olga’s life experiences led her on an exciting career path in international security, politics and intercultural communications.

After experiencing the collapse of the Soviet Union, she discovered new worlds through traveling and working with a number of prominent academic and policy making organizations such as NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Brussels, Harvard University Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, and Women Waging Peace; she also taught political science at the University of British Columbia. Olga holds a Doctoral degree from the University of British Columbia and a Master’s degree from the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, University of Pittsburgh.

An immense shift in her life came in 2010 when dealing with an ongoing personal crisis. With her emotional and physical health deteriorating, she tried working with various therapists in hopes of resolving the issues, albeit with very little success. That is when Olga discovered ThroughConversation™ and experienced a methodology that quickly brought happiness and health back into her life. Having experienced the process first hand, Olga dedicated her time to making ThroughConversation™ more accessible in Vancouver and internationally.

Today, Olga lives happily with her daughter in Vancouver, British Columbia, and enjoys racing sailboats overseas. Since 2013 she became a partner in ThroughConversation™ Personal Development.


Jean-Paul Gravel

Founder of the ThroughConversation™ process and its methodology, Jean-Paul is a caring and loving soul who enjoys making people happy. Coming from a French-Canadian background, he has always had tremendous ease at expressing himself. He started dancing when he was eight, became a peer within his community and a highly accomplished dancer by 1994.

1996 marked the beginning of his spiritual growth and health-oriented education. He noticed that even though he was self-expressed, he let his emotions get in the way of the relationships he had with people all around him.

Learning to work with this dynamic in a positive and gentle manner was the cornerstone that would facilitate change in himself and in others. Soon after, he started teaching others how to find their voice and listen to their hearts.

In 2004, Jean-Paul discovered undeniable links between one’s emotional freedom and physical health. Putting the pieces together, he began to outline an exclusive methodology that would dramatically improve one’s physical and emotional health. He found his passion and committed himself to the life work of teaching others.

Today, Jean-Paul lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, dances Argentine tango, has two businesses, and is building a charitable foundation to support people in need.
