Hi, my name is Jo and I would describe myself as an idealist and a dreamer. I truly believe that people can be happy within themselves despite the challenges of their circumstances. I am no stranger to pain and loss and have used my personal experiences to seek answers to not only to help myself through my own journey, but to be able to walk alongside others as they follow their paths.
Helping people is something I have been doing since I was very young, with my dad reminding me that I would have groups of girls sitting in a circle talking about things and moving forward. I have such a passion for helping people reach their potential through exploration, creativity and love. I am passionate about women’s health and in particular empowering them in their daily live. We all have unharnessed power within ourselves to be able to create and achieve the life we want for ourselves. Having had my own challenges in life as a woman, I took a multimodal approach utilising the experience of many in the medical field and alternative therapies including hypnotherapy and coaching. The more I learnt in my own journey, the more I wanted to bring my knowledge and skills to the beautiful women of the world. My resources and training will complement the awesome results that can be achieved through hypnotherapy and coaching.
A little about me professionally, I am a qualified therapist and NLP Practitioner with a Diploma of Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy, Graduate Diploma in Health Counselling and Masters of Counselling. I am also trained in the areas of Hypnobirthing and a registered practitioner with Hypnobirthing Australia TM and a practitioner of Hypnofertility through the Eastburn Clinic. I am committed to ongoing professional and personal development, to ensure my clients always receive the highest possible level of service. I am a member of professional bodies including the Australian Hypnotherapy Association (AHA) and Hypnobirthing Australia.
Over the last eight years I has worked in various counselling roles, to assist people to bring about positive changes in their lives working with individuals, couples and families, to help them face the challenges encountered in their daily life and to help bring back their sense of balance and harmony. I have experience in the treatment of grief and loss, depression and anxiety, fears and phobias, addictions, fertility and relationship/family counselling. I use techniques with coaching, counselling and hypnotherapy as I believe these are respectful and gentle ways to create meaningful and long-lasting changes as well as being empowering and dynamic and even a little bit fun. Change can be exciting, as you will learn in our journey together.
