Ally McManus

Jo is an incredibly supportive leader and mentor in both retreat and wellness settings. She is an experienced facilitator in empowering women to step into their authenticity and connect to a deep sense of self. She is a supportive mentor and coach and someone I respect both personally and professionally. I couldn’t recommend her services more in the field of health and wellbeing.

Karen Platt

Jo came into my life at just the right time. I was the most vulnerable and weak I had ever been – after losing a twin pregnancy after 3 years and 16 rounds of IVF.

I knew I needed to break down to build myself back up and attended a retreat to focus on getting active and eating well when Jo suggested I needed to give myself a mental break as well.

I was expecting someone to tell me to lose weight, drink less, move and sleep more, but instead Jo said I needed to be kind to myself. It was in this conversation I gave myself that permission. Over 5 days Jo helped me to experience my pain and to let go of my experience so I could again become optimistic about the potential of becoming a mother.

In the end it was a balance of physical health and mental wellbeing that saw that dream come true only months after.  I am forever thankful for Jo’s insight, but also her caring nature – when I really needed it.

Jo is a very special lady who has been an inspirational mentor to me. She is wise, kind, generous in all respects and always authentic. In her role as mentor, Jo stresses the importance of gratitude, and her seminar on this topic has enhanced the way I live my life and treat the people around me. I have greatly benefited from her insights and her practical, sensible suggestions. I feel blessed to have met Jo.

Kay Atkins

I say goodbye to Jo with spring in my step. I am now armed with the tools I need to take charge of my life. My fitness is on track to tackle hiking in Myanmar , my fear of getting out of my comfort zone is gone and I am full of courage to take on whatever happens next. Jo has a multitude of life skills. She motivates, she educates, she nurtures and most of all she cares- cares about our wellness- physical and emotional. Jo is real- with Jo it comes from the heart.

Karen

Jo has supported me in a personal transformation following a long period of juggling health issues & a demanding career – both have taken their toll emotionally and physically.

With the consultation and appropriate environment to commence exercise, diet & meditation routines to aid my personal wellbeing, it was Jo’s encouraging, caring & consultative approach that made the difference.

I would not hesitate to recommend Jo to anyone on a pursuit to improve mind & body or find that elusive balance between personal & professional lives.

Your amazing karma, your calm, your inner peace and contentment was palpable and so very inspiring.

From your incredible sessions on meditation, belly breathing, your fabulous nurturing yoga class; you have a beautiful gift of healing, creating and inspiring positivity, excitement about the future and encouraging us to be kind to ourselves and grateful for what there is.

Thank you for unlocking some pretty important feelings and emotions that really needed to come out and did during the yoga session.

Alison Harrington

Jo came to our family like an angel in an extremely difficult time. My daughter was recovering from an eating disorder and suffering from depression. Jo assisted my daughter with a unique mix of care, compassion and positive energy. She had unique insight in being able to “get” my daughter and what she needed at this time. She worked with her to develop healthy exercise, self-care, nutrition regimes and also practical strategies to improve her headspace. She also helped my daughter deal with a difficult relationship with her dad as a result of her illness. My daughter is now in a great headspace and has recovered from those difficult years and found Jo’s assistance highly valuable. I would fully recommend Jo as a coach to teenagers.
