Jo's approach enables people to engage more creatively and confidently with the challenges they face. She combines her skills and training with a deep curiosity of the uniqueness of each person; tuning into what makes people 'tick' and how can she best be of service to them.
Every coaching assignment is tailored to the needs, hopes, current issues and context of the individuals Jo supports. She blends the ability to grapple with serious themes and complex challenges with lightness and encouragement - helping to liberate untapped personal resources hidden behind blocks that limit, distract or divert people from being their best selves. Jo's approach is deeply acknowledging and affirming of people and their ability to make a difference.
Jo's coaching career began over fifteen years ago in a quest to find a shared language across communities, politicians and senior decision-makers. She draws on her additional psychological expertise to help people better understand and navigate the tangles, relationships and struggles in life and work.
Jo works across systems, with public and third sector leaders, corporate C-suite executives, regional directors and emerging talent. Her clients are based in Scotland, London and across the world - in a variety of sectors including financial & legal, industry, telecommunications, NGOs and public service.
Jo is a courageous, novice sea kayaker and cycling adventurer. She finds stillness in Tai Chi / Qi Gong; and playfulness in three growing grandchildren.
