From my clients
After 20 years of suffering, anxiety is no longer a problem in my life!
I am so relieved to have found Jo.
After more than 20 years of suffering from anxiety I felt that nothing was ever going to change and would never feel better. I had seen counsellors and therapist and nothing helped or worked.
Working with Jo over 6 session has changed my outlook, perspective and happiness immensely. My anxiety is no longer a problem in my life, something I thought I would never be able to say!
I felt that Jo worked very hard to tailor each session to maximise the potential outcome for me, Jo also provided many wonderful tools that I will now have and use for the rest of my life. I feel that Jo has left me very well equipped for my life ahead.
The dark hole I was stuck in is now filled in with flowers growing on it!
I had anxiety every day, I felt stuck in a black hole and couldn’t get out, I felt useless, a failure, nothing I did was ever good enough in my head. I was a fear
driven robot waiting for the worst to happen. I was desperate I needed to be fixed, to be normal , therapy for years didn’t work and I couldn’t keep this up.
Seeing Jo on facebook I was drawn by her energy and attitude and desperate to try anything to be normal I gave the free session a go (thinking well it wont work but at least it won't cost anything…sorry Jo!)
Oh my goodness seeing Jo is a life changer for me, the sessions are like sitting with a friend and having a chat and it is easy to trust . So many moments with Jo a barrier is broken down with one of the first being when Jo told me I wasn’t broken. I spent the day thinking to myself I am ok, I am not broken and then crying. I can now look
in the mirror and like what I see. My crippling anxiety has subsided and I am enjoying exploring life and the joys it brings. I am conscious of what I think and say to myself and everyday work to make the best of everyday.
I have more to explore and use Jo’s facebook page to refresh and to see I am not alone with the challenges of life and I am able to say to you now I am a success and that dark hole is filled with Flowers and a tree planted on it and I will never have to be stuck again.
From stressed & anxious to positive & mindful
Jo has literally turned my life around and put me back on my feet.
I have gone from feeling highly stressed, anxious and totally unmotivated to exercise, drinking too much and smoking to feeling positive, mindful, eating healthy, daily practices, back in the gym, smoke free and loving life.
She offers brilliant support even though we’ve done this remotely as I’m in the UK.
And just when I’m having a bad day or need some support she’s right there with help and support to get me back on track.
Happiness & calm have come back to my life
I just wanted to share with you that you have really helped me in the past few months we have been working together.
I’m glad I decided to work with you to ease anxiety and stress. It’s been amazing how we have worked on new strategies in our sessions and you have guided me to embed them in my daily life. By doing this I have had the confidence and mindset to apply for new jobs and take steps forward in my career.
My new way of being able to let go of perfection and the anxieties that come with that mean that I can enjoy opportunities. It used to consume me being perfect and now I can take a more balanced approach to life.
Thanks, Jo! It's truly appreciated that happiness and calm that have come back to my life. Working with you has been a pleasure and the top of the best things I have invested in in my life.
Happier & more motivated at work
Having Jo as a manager/mentor and coach has been a pivotal part of my growth and has made the past 18 months in the business the best by far.
Her 1 on 1 coaching/training and implemented procedures created a happier and more motivated work environment which in return reflected on the team morale, customer experiences and productivity.
During our time together I have received so much
invaluable support and tools I can use going forward to help further myself as a person and in my career. I would give anything to have the opportunity to work with
Thanks Jo, you're truly are 1 in a million.
Getting me unstuck!
Jo is an exceptional coach. Jo's questioning techniques push me to think about things in a totally new way and opens up more possibilities and options for me.
I have found coaching to be one of the most transformative techniques enabling me achieve my goals and get me unstuck. I recommend Jo to anyone, she is so passionate and enthusiastic and is determined to help you reach the breakthroughs you need to achieve whatever it is you want out of your health and life.
Thank you Jo and I look forward to working with you again in the future.
Look out world - here I come
Thank you Jo for the past 90 days. When we started working together my main goal was weight loss and my self esteem was at an all time low. I have consistently lost weight over the past few months, but more importantly, I've gained so much more than just weight loss. For the first time ever I'm happy in my own skin!
Jo you have taught me to love myself as I discovered I have so much to offer the world. You have taught me to do things for myself and to set goals and complete them. I came out of this learning so much more about my self than I ever expected. The tools and the passion you have for this made the journey so much fun, your non judgmental personality made it easy to speak about things that are difficult and we’re holding me back. Look out world here I come. Thanks Jo.
I was so defeated and unsure
Knowing Jo previously, I knew she would be the right fit for me to help get my mind in a more positive place after trying what I thought was every possible method of becoming a better and healthier version of myself. I was so right, with her guidance over the 12 weeks I learnt a lot about myself. I was feeling so defeated and unsure how to move forward and have a positive look on myself and the life I have.
She not only listened and asked questions about all aspects of my life but provided me with exercises and material which I still use to this day to help overcome any negative thoughts and feelings when things arise that I feel are out of control.
Jo I am so grateful to you and so thankful for your continued support and encouragement.
I cannot recommend her enough
When identifying a single phrase to describe my experience with Jo, my mind indelibly concludes that she is "a blessing in disguise".
I'll forever be grateful for all the constant support she offered me during a tough phase of my life.
Jo helped me clarify my thoughts and identify what I needed to do to move forward by breaking down the steps I needed to take into pint sized actions.
Her excellent strategies to cope up with anxiety like the 3-3-5 breathing technique, grounding myself, and practicing mindfulness helped me tackle my anxiety constructively.
Jo is a super good listener, easy to talk to and so down to earth. Thank you for always considering me as a whole person and uplifting me with your encouragement and patience.
Your coaching and your optimism really is your gift. I cherish the connection we've made and literally cannot recommend her enough!
I’ve worked with Jo previously when she was managing the Customer Care team and I have directly reported to her as a Floor Supervisor. I’m glad I’ve had this opportunity and I have nothing but fantastic things to describe her as my Manager & Coach.
She takes this transformational approach and joins your journey as your ‘coach’ so that you make the most of ‘whatever’s’ thrown at you in a professional setting and turn it around in your favour. Our 1-1s have always been very constructive and the action plans I develop have worked wonders delivering effective results right away.
On a broader scale, it was evident that she was really passionate about ‘Customers’ but even more passionate about staff, both direct reports and other stakeholders within the business.
I’d love another opportunity to work with her directly-thanks heaps Jo, you’re a great coach!
The greatest leader
I consider myself fortunate to work with you and learn from your experiences, Jo. You’re the greatest coach and leader I have ever met in my life.
You’ve helped me grow professionally by being confident in everything I do as well as personally by being healthy and helping with my schedule to be able to spend time with my family. I promise to work hard to maintain the confidence and trust you have shown in me.
Jo I love your positivity, love interacting with you and enjoy being around you as there’s still so much to learn from you. You’ve always supported the entire team and encouraged to do our best. You have always stood by and believed in me and I appreciate all your efforts. Jo you’re always there when I need you and thanks for boosting my morale and lifting up my spirit.
You’re my role model!
Exactly the right time
Just wanted to say what an inspirational person and coach Jo is.
She came to me last year asking me if I was interested in participating in a 6 week Mind & Body transformation course. Which ticked all the boxes of topics I was interested in digging deeper into and understanding, but my response was “I really need to but I’m not in the right headspace and I don’t have the time”
Jo responded “maybe this is exactly the right time for it”.
And it was.
The tools Jo taught me throughout the course I am using now. I love all the daily posts and “lives” as it keeps me in check.
Jo has/is walking the talk!
I highly recommend the next time there is a course that you get on board.
Thanks Jo for making a difference in my life
So many Aha moments
I have been working with Jo for over 12 months and, in short her coaching has led to more ‘aha’ moments than I would ever have been able to achieve by myself.
These have been genuine moments of enlightenment that have allowed me to make so many gains in my career, from how to lead my team more effectively, how to pursue what I am really looking to achieve, through to the power of coaching in my team environment.
Thank you Jo - myself, my career and my team have much more direction and belief because of your fantastic talent for coaching.
Changed my mindset
I’m so glad I found Jo!
I was in a constant cycle of starving myself and then binge eating.
She has helped me to change my mindset so that I’m focused and motivated to reach my goal of achieving and maintaining a healthy sustainable lifestyle.
A better person after 90 day course
In January, I had the opportunity to meet Jo through a friend. I wasn’t sure it was right for me as I am the perfect yo-yo dieter and hadn’t tried anything like this before. Things had to change so I thought ‘what the hell’, it is worth a go.
The first time I met Jo, I was very nervous and I had no idea what to expect. Straightaway Jo put me at ease and clearly explained her approach and how the program worked. It was no longer just about diet but my whole being. We set goals each week, not weight related but health related which was quite alien to me. It could be as simple as drinking enough water or exercising 5 days a week, then at the start of our weekly meetings we would discuss what went well and what was challenging.
Jo devised a program that was easy to follow and helped me focus on key areas. She provided material that made the learning about myself enjoyable and achievable. She was always available to support me throughout the program and clearly explained how to adapt the program to my lifestyle. Her approach was motivational and definitely empowered me work through the weekly lessons and want to be a better person.
Half way through the program I was diagnosed with breast cancer, the easy option for me would have been to stop the course and shut down. However, I knew that Jo’s approach was not just about losing weight but giving me back control of my life so I made the call to continue and with Jo’s support I feel it has helped me deal with all the challenges thrown at me. Her techniques taught me to calm my mind and focus on the bigger picture.
A bonus of the course was I lost 7 kilos over the 90 days, even though that was my priority at the start of the program, it was more about my mental health and wellbeing.
I have learnt so much from Jo over the course and am eternally grateful for everything she has taught me. I cannot recommend Jo enough for guiding anyone on this program, she has the ability to take you on this journey of self-discovery, while building your confidence and self-value.
Thank you so much Jo, I know I am a better person for taking this course and wish you all the success in the world as you help other people.
