Jo’s expertise lies in providing the practical tools and support required to implement new nutritional habits in the comfort of your own home. We often know what we need to do, and yet sometimes the ‘how’ can be overwhelming. Jo is amazing at breaking things down into easy and achievable steps for long-term success.

Jo does this by providing:

½ Day Kitchen And Pantry Make Overs

Jo will come into your kitchen and step by step, transform your relationship with food. Jo will go through your fridge and pantry, and provide the education and support you need to make the changes to your nutritional choices. All of which are essential parts of reclaiming your health. During this ½ day you will go through:

  • Fridge and pantry audits and be provided with a list of alternative items where needed
  • The preparation of 3-5 meals for the week ahead
  • The preparation and storage of food for time saving and efficiency

Meal Plans & Recipes Tailored To Your Nutritional Needs

Jo works closely with myself and Pip to provide individualised meal plans that support you to achieve your health goals by maximising your food choices and implementing simple, nutritious and delicious meals the whole family can enjoy too.

Individual and Group Cooking Classes

Jo provides private and group cooking lessons in the comfort of your own home. This is a powerful opportunity to learn how to work with a variety of different foods and cooking methods. These classes can be tailored to your needs and are an ideal support for those transitioning into gluten free or dairy free alternative choices. They will provide you with the confidence and skill set to expand your nutritional knowledge and library of recipes.

Individual And Group Grocery Shopping Tours

A foundation principle to building your health is to know how to qualify quality when buying your food. Wether you’re just starting out and wanting to make healthier choices at your local supermarkets, learning what to look out for on food labels, or are wanting to know how to explore your local farmers markets and make discerning choices from ethical and sustainable sources, Jo will tailor your tour to provide the guidance and education you need to become the savvy shopper!

Private Coaching

Old habits can be hard to change and it takes time, awareness, guidance and above all support to acquire the tools and skills to harness new habits and behaviours that will support you on your health and life journey. Jo’s unique skill set and personal experience with her own health journey is what makes Jo’s coaching methods so successful.

Energy Medicine

A holistic approach to wellness and healing requires us to honour the whole human being, the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual experiences and challenges. Just as we use food as our medicine to support the body to physically heal, Jo’s work combines deep energy healings to support the mental, emotional and spiritual bodies to release energies that you no longer need to hold on to which are causing you distress and dis-ease in your life. When you are assisted to let go of emotions that are no longer serving you, true healing may occur on all levels of your being.

Jo can assist you to harmonise and re-align your energy to move into balance in your life physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Her work with clients and families has covered a multitude of conditions and concerns, from adrenal fatigue, to autoimmune disorders to cancers.


Jo is committed to empowering individuals to transform their way of thinking, improve their personal health, achieve their personal goals, and make a difference in their daily life and the lives of those they touch. Her coaching is conducted in both an online and face-to-face capacity.
