Jo has literally turned my life around and put me back on my feet.
I have gone from feeling highly stressed 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
