About me

About me

My name is Jo, and I am a registered Nutritionist.

Having spent nearly 20-years in the pharmaceutical industry, and being conventionally trained, I was exposed to the world of holistic medicine during the two years that I lived in South Africa. 

Why did I become a Nutritionist?

I previously suffered from a prolapsed disc in my back, which caused persistent and debilitating stiffness, so I decided to visit a body stress practitioner to see if they could help me. This opened my eyes to the world of treating the body as a whole and the body’s innate ability to heal itself, if given the right conditions. It started an enduring passion for taking responsibility for my own health, learning to treat conditions through diet and lifestyle and it ultimately led to educating myself to make better choices for my health. I thus decided to retrain in naturopathic nutrition, at the College of Naturopathic Medicine.

What can I offer?

I offer personalised programmes that help clients discover the root cause of their symptoms and provide a bespoke nutrition and lifestyle plan to restore the natural balance of the body. 

I understand it can be overwhelming to be presented with massive changes but my passion lies in setting people achievable goals, ultimately enabling them to build better habits. 
 
My mission is to empower people with knowledge and my fundamental principle is it’s about better choices not perfection!

Testimonials

"For anyone wanting to make simple, positive steps towards taking control of their own health destiny, I recommend Jo completely. She has a wealth of knowledge and has a sincere passion for helping people improve their lives through nutrition. She doesn’t overwhelm with medical information, instead she listens, respects and recommends a programme tailored to your specific needs. Sometimes small, simple changes, made daily, have the biggest impact, and after 'tweaking’ my diet, I’ve already noticed a huge improvement in my health and vitality. Eat Nourish Thrive is a part of my self care and I will continue to use her services to live my best life."

Kathy

"Jo has really helped me tackle some long-standing stomach issues, as well as getting to the root of several mysterious symptoms that I also had going on. She is compassionate and personable, and explains things really well - I felt that she genuinely cared about improving my health. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing nutritional guidance."
