Wellbeing is a journey… not a destination
The choices you make each day move you either towards or away from enjoying optimal wellbeing – and this is an ongoing process throughout life that you can continue to improve upon. I think of it as wellbeing in progress.
My journey has taught me that how energised and healthy you feel depends upon how much you choose to engage with progressing towards a better version of yourself. Whether that’s feeling calmer, stronger, fitter, or more energised – you continue to work on it, even though along the way it can be difficult or uncomfortable; because the experience when you get there is worth it.
With that in mind – how authentic and nourishing (or depleting) are your everyday choices? How energetic and vitalised do you want to feel? What are your health and wellbeing goals? How often do you invest in feeling not just good – but great? Perhaps you are following the same unhealthy practices you have for years because you are unsure what to do, or because changing can be hard. Is now the time to take responsibility for how you feel and make the diet and lifestyle changes you know you need to?
My name is Jo Herbert-Doyle, and I support others who want to optimise their wellbeing – to enjoy more energy, manage the stressors of everyday life, to be calm and centred, to live better. I do this by tailoring bio-psycho-social-energetic and lifestyle medicine solutions to each persons unique situation, and then offer them wellness and accountability coaching; because whilst everyone is different, most need some sort of support along their path.
Continuing personal and professional development is the key to growth in my opinion, so I have become broadly qualified over the years and able to facilitate a truly personalised holistic approach. Integrating naturopathic philosophy with my training and knowledge of herbs, diet and applied nutrition, energetic and mind-body medicine, along with optional genetics testing to gain insight into this unique aspect of each person.
In addition to the above, I have an interest in, and an awareness of, the transpersonal and existential aspects of human experience, i’m an everyday yogini, a hiker, and a writer. I transitioned from an omnivorous to a vegan diet in my 40s to optimise my health and energy, as well as for environmental reasons; and i’m an endlessly curious seeker – one who enjoys exploring the world and meeting the people who live here. All of this influences my everyday life as well as my clinical practice, and helps me to meet people where they are at on their own path.
I have embraced the opportunity to live and work in the UK, New Zealand, Australia and now Hong Kong, with my own journey one of exploration, new experiences, ongoing learning, reflection and discovery. I see my purpose as one of sharing what I can with others who also want to live each day well.
