Plant-Based Lifestyle Consultation

Please note: Jo is between locations but will be available again soon. 

What is a Plant-Based Lifestyle?  It’s choosing to be nourished and nurtured by natures plantlife in the form of your dietary choices and with herbal therapies if required—avoiding all animal products. My naturopathically-inspired coaching method blends naturopathic philosophy with a unique transformative coaching approach to help you deepen your self-awareness and forge a path that suits your lifestyle transformation goals.

Initial discovery session – allow 1 hour + some homework

Follow up accountability sessions – 30 minutes

Qualified as a naturopath, herbalist, nutritionist, arts psychotherapist, reiki master, meditation teacher, energetic kinesiologist, wellness and spiritual life coach (amongst other things!); I blend over 25,000 hours of formal and informal studies, my own personal inquiry and experiences, and more than 20 years practical experience in the health and wellness industry. As such, I understand each person to be an integrative whole of body-mind-spirit-environment and am specifically qualified to work with all of these aspects of the human experience.

As an advocate of collaborative relationships, I aim to both inform and support you while you explore the obstacles that exist to you achieving your health and wellbeing goals using a holistic and transformative coaching method developed over many years.

My approach is not to simply tell you what to do, nor to send you away with a prescription to take (though we may discuss something to help temporarily if stress and/or anxiety is one of your main obstacles). Instead, I support you in deepening your awareness of what holds you back from achieving optimal wellbeing and help you explore the question, “What needs to change?”. As part of your journey, I also help you develop a plan for sustained lifestyle change that will move you along the path to reaching your health and wellbeing goals.

As a follower of a 100% plant-based eating style, I understand how to transition to such and can also support those wishing to do the same.

Mind-Body Medicine: Yoga Nidra & Reiki

Please note: Jo is between locations but will be available again soon. 

Allow 60-75 minutes 

Experience a 1:1 session of yoga nidra with Reiki. Restoring the mind-body-spirit axis is possible by having your subtle anatomy assessed and balanced while you experience a yoga nidra meditation and tune into your inner space. Reiki is a powerful tool to help restore wellbeing and reduce feelings of stress and/or overwhelm. These sessions not only induce the inherent relaxation response of the physical body, with all the many benefits that come with being in a deeply relaxed alpha-wave state, but my personal approach also facilitates the balancing of the subtle anatomy—the meridian and chakra systems of the traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine systems, respectively. With over two decades working with Reiki energy (more than 15 of these as a Reiki Master Teacher), I combine this experience with my training as a meditation teacher to create a space of deep relaxation and healing energy. For those new to the traditional Usui Reiki system, more information can read here.

For those interested in a higher conscious evolution, I also offer advanced mind-body energy therapy work by special appointment. More information on this unique modality can be found here. Please note these sessions are only booked after discussion with me on the suitability of each client. I choose not to use needles but use acupressure instead as indicated.

Transpersonal Kinesiology & Holistic Life Coaching

Please note: Jo is between locations but will be available again soon. 

Allow 60-75 minutes

For those needing help with decision making, feeling unsure about life but don’t know why, or who are ready to explore their life direction and all aspects of their wellbeing in a more profound way, holistic life coaching and energy psychology can help you connect to your inner wisdom. In each session, I incorporate a transpersonal kinesiology method developed over several years along with acupoint therapy, Reiki, and other energy psychology techniques, to balance any detected imbalances that are hindering you. This, along with insights gained during your session, can help you to move forward on your path better informed.

Transpersonal Kinesiology is an evolutionary style of kinesiology that explores matters of the transpersonal (beyond the self), spirit or higher self. This method uses muscle testing and biofeedback to connect your inner and unseen aspects with your outer world experience—allowing you to reflect upon what is revealed so you may use this to inform your future path.

I encourage those interested in going to this next level of self-discovery to come with an open mind and heart and be prepared to process and reflect upon what is revealed each session to gain optimal insight. These sessions can be especially helpful for those feeling ‘stuck’ or lacking purpose, and seeking a deeper understanding of their transpersonal nature.
