How I can help you
Coaching is about facilitating change. In the past coaching was mainly for directors and senior management. Nowadays it is recognised as a powerful tool for an extremely wide number of areas including Life Coaching, Executive Coaching, Couples Coaching, Business Coaching, Corporate – Leadership and Team Coaching.
Coaching stimulates and empowers clients to clarify their goals and to make the changes that they want, with support and encouragement along the way. It is one of the best investments you could ever make.
Coaching can help you to:
- clarify your goals
- explore different options and decide on a course of action
- identify anything which has been holding you back
- challenge any limiting beliefs
- help to overcome obstacles
- align with your values and motivators
- understand your strengths, skills, capabilities and resources
- agree and design appropriate plans
- decide and take the agreed actions
- keep on track!

Areas of coaching I deal with
Other areas of coaching I deal with
Mental Health Awareness
"Jo flipped my view of life upside down; an acrimonious divorce and pending redundancy had left me anxious, binge eating and depressed. Jo re-framed my negative outlook with practical strategies, plans and advice, all delivered humour, a smile and energy. In 3 sessions I was on the mend; brighter and more positive. Be warned life coaching is no easy fix, be ready to work hard outside of the sessions!
I definitely have my mojo back and would highly recommend Jo!" Kathryn Ball, London
"Before meeting Jo, I was suffering with several anxiety-induced issues including; feeling unable to return to activities (gymnastics and contortion) which I love (which I had to take a few months off of due to illness), feeling anxious about applying for jobs and issues around food. I looked into hypnotherapy as I felt that these issues were too deep in my unconscious mind to just "get over" and I came across Jo. She helped me to banish any negative voices in my head that were telling that I was not capable of this or that and that I should not eat certain things. She also coached me through the job application and interview process. I am now happy to report that I have a job in a field that I am passionate about, I am back doing my gymnastics and contortion (and loving them!) and I'm feeling more relaxed around food. Most importantly, I am in a much happier
place and people are noticing the difference. I could not have done it without her. I highly recommend." - C.O. - London
...GAINING NEW PERSPECTIVES...
"When I first called Jo to find out more about what she did I felt she actually understood what I was saying and how I was feeling, she explained how she could help me, I’m so glad I decided to have life coaching with her as it’s made me look at my life in a totally new way, given me confidence and equipped me with so many tools to help myself in different situations I may find myself in, I’m so happy and glad that I embarked on this absolutely amazing journey as it’s changed my life for the absolute better! Thanks so much Jo!"- Sangita, London
..GETTING BACK ON TRACK...
"Having tried conventional therapy to try and combat anxiety and panic-related issues for some considerable months to no avail, I found Jo and was struck by the immediacy of relief and change which she induced both through a combination of NLP and hypnotherapy. She has an incredible ability to put you at ease, help you clearly identify and work through your difficulties and for me personally discover a renewed positivity for life and its direction, so much so, I’m now looking into NLP for my own personal development ! I found Jo’s approach very personal, empathetic, supportive and understanding and it felt like she went above and beyond that that I had previously experienced to ensure my return to my previously happy and confident self ! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Jo, thank you for all that you have done for me!" L.O. - Essex
...AND THEN REACHING YOUR GOALS
"Thanks to Jo I have my dream job. For years I have suffered with interview nerves. But I attended a couple of sessions with Jo and she gave me the confidence and calmness that I needed with stressful interview situations. As a result I not only have my dream job but I also have the tools to deal with any similar challenges that life might put in my way." - Mari, London
