Jo as an experienced childcare professional who has worked for over 20 years with children who have experienced trauma. She is a qualified social worker with a background in children’s social work, systemic social work and therapeutic support for families. Jo is passionate about working with children to promote positive mental health throughout their lifespan.

Having been a manager in a therapeutic children’s home so she knows first hand the challenges of caring for complex children. Jo is also a parent of 8 and 11-year-old children knows the challenges parenting brings and how hard it can be to find the right help for yourself or your child. Hearing more and more stories of children not being able to access the right help at the right time, and of parents under intense pressure, led Jo to chose to train in NLP to be able to provide focused, empowering and person-centered interventions.


1-1 NLP with Children – I am a licenced NLP4kids practitioner who has a wide range of experience working with children. NLP techniques allow me to explore the problem in a specific way which is designed to increase motivation to change. I am then able to help the child to understand more about relationships and communication so that they are enabled and empowered to find their own solutions.  I use practical, interactive techniques so that when the work is finished the child has developed an internal tool-kit full of ways to manage their own emotions and make themselves feel better. This is why NLP is really beneficial to promote long term, even life long, change.  NLP is fast-working and effective. Most problems can be dealt with in 4-8 sessions, sometimes even less if the problem is quite specific.

Parenting Coaching – My work as a parenting coach combines my training as an NLP4parents practitioner with my experience working with hundreds of families while a practicing as a social worker and my experience caring for extremely complex children in my role as a manager of a therapeutic children’s home. My parenting mantra is “behaviour is communication” and my work with families involves helping them to understand the communication, because if you don’t understand the communication you have very little chance of changing the behaviour. Parenting coaching gives parents the emotional space and tools to be able to negotiate challenges to improve the connection with your child and get more joy from parenting.  This isn’t a one size fits all approach, it’s the support you need to learn to effectively parent the children you have.
