I believe all of us have a bright, blazing light within us.
I believe we need to listen to our heart, tune in to our truth, and live like we mean it.
I believe that following our passion is our life’s purpose.
And I believe that if we just get out of our own way, life can be pretty friggen amazing.
Hey there gorgeous. I’m Jo.
I help amazing women – yep, just like you – to connect with their truth, step into their power, and beam their beautiful light out into the world.
As a Life Coach, Counsellor and Mind Detox Therapist, I work with clients to strip back the stuff that’s keeping them small – the negative thoughts, the limiting beliefs, and the destructive self-image – so they can live their best life.
We do this by dialling up their self-worth, ramping up their self-care, and getting super-serious about self-love. Because even though it sounds kinda cliché, I believe it all comes back to LOVE – the deep-seeded, slow-burning kind that we all have inside us. I also believe that it’s when we forget about this heart-fuelled part of ourselves that we start running into problems.
You see, way too many of us are living in a permanent state of self-loathing and self-doubt (i.e. the total opposite of self-love)…
We feel constantly crappy about ourselves. Whenever we look in the mirror, we’re overwhelmed with the thought that if only we were better – prettier, thinner, richer, smarter, funnier, whatever – then maybe we might just be okay. But until then… forgeddaboutit. We’re pretty much just a waste of space.
I know that’s definitely how I used to feel, for SUCH a long time. I spent YEARS worrying that I was Weird. Different. Unworthy. Totally unattractive without my hair and make-up perfect. I felt like I was missing the secret code to crack life. All my friends seemed to have their shit together, but I was constantly plagued by doubt, anxiety, loneliness, and a raging case of the not-enoughs. I hated how I looked, I had zero self-confidence, and I always felt like I was failing at life compared to everyone around me. I managed to keep up appearances and wore my perfection mask, i wore it so much that i lost all connection with my true self and my sense of self worth was a dim little light. I felt like that damn mask was suffocating me and that i might never get it off and be able to feel fresh air and sunlight on my skin again.
Things finally started to change when…
I realised that my uniqueness was what made me me.
And that being me was an amazingly good thing. (Hello self worth… nice to meet you ☺) It sounds so simple, but this realisation was revo-friggen-lutionary!
It wasn’t an immediate shift, more like a slow dawning. But what I came to know for sure – deep down in my soul – was that I mattered. I was beautiful and loveable and worthy. I didn’t need to hide myself and my quirks away, I could celebrate them with the world – loud n’ proud, baby! *insert happy dance whilst singing Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’ here*
I latched on to this new concept with gusto, not to mention relief. Finally, FINALLY, I’d found a way to live that felt true to me; that wasn’t slowly crushing me from the inside out. I was living my life with joy and happiness, treating myself better than I ever had before, and HOLY WOW did things start happening:
My relationship with my gorgeous man improved and our love deepened beyond any words (hello, handsome husband!). I finally started to explore my wildest dreams for my entire life including my career direction. I got over my less-than-awesome eating patterns. I got in the best shape of my life (without starving myself to get there). I kicked a heap of self-destructive habits that had been plaguing me to the curb. I created incredibly deep bonds with my soul sisters. I achieved a bunch of my goals. And I was a boat-load happier than I’d ever been before.
All from just practising a little self-love. (Not too shabby at all, huh?!)
And on top of all that, I knew deep to my very core, more than ever I have to follow my passion to help other young women make the same journey.
That’s why I started all of this…
After a decade of working as a social worker, I knew I wanted to connect with my clients in a new and engaging way. I knew I wanted to spread the word about the power of self-love and positivity. And I definitely knew that this was a message that needed to get out there, to every square inch of the globe.
That’s what sparked the idea for this website.
This is my online home to share with you all the things I’ve learnt on my journey – plus the things I’m still figuring out (no-one’s perfect, right?!). This is a space for soul-stirring love and overflowing positivity. It’s a place where we can just be us and let it all out, and know that it’s still perfectly okay. It’s a hub for truth and empowerment and light. And I’m so over the moon thrilled to bits to have you here.
