BA(Hons), PGCE, LCPH
Jo (director of Healthworks) has been involved with complementary medicine for 30 years and has brought up her two daughters, Chloe, 30, and Molly, 24, completely naturally, using nothing but complementary therapies. Before Jo discovered the alternative world of therapies she used to regard herself as generally quite sickly, however her life was turned around with homeopathy. This inspired her so much she decided to train as a homeopath.
Her visionary foresight created The Health Works in 2002 and it has grown from strength to strength, becoming the leading complementary health centre in East London. Jo trained at the College of Practical Homeopathy, and has completed many Continuing Professional Development courses since then. She has a degree in Drama and English and a PGCE teaching qualification which add both exciting and professional qualities to her workshops and classes.
She has a wide range of experience in many areas of health and her approach to natural medicine is to empower her clients to learn about their health issues and be pro-active in their treatment. To this end she runs regular homeopathic First Aid Workshops.
She specialises in the treatment of pregnant women, babies and children and often treats several generations within families. Jo went on to train in Hypnobirthing and some of her clients call her “the fairy godmother of hypnobirthing in Walthamstow”. She also teaches Baby Massage and Yoga which brings her practice with pregnant women full circle.
Jo trained in Hypnobirthing a couple of years ago, an area she has been interested in for years and that complements her expertise with pregnant women. She has had some lovely Hypnobabies born in the last year. Read about the technique on our website and newsletter and in her soon to be launched hypnobirthing website.
