I visited Jo's Clinic about weight loss following a hip replacement apprehensively, as aged 69 I felt this might be a wasting everyone's time and confused by the plethora of seemingly contradictory healthy eating messages, I felt in need of expert advice. Jo is professional, approachable, enthusiastic, very knowledgeable and sets realistic goals. I have enjoyed the sessions and learnt so much, not least, to eat more! Jo has given me the tools to assess the food I'm eating, which I now enjoy without guilt. I have more energy and feel so much better. I wish I had done this years ago. I have found the process empowering. I cannot thank or recommend Jo enough

I was struggling with trying to lose weight before I started working with Jo. I was frustrated because I read a fair bit about nutrition and yet, despite carefully choosing whole foods, avoiding wheat, dairy etc., the weight simply wouldn't come off. Jo helped me navigate the minefield of information out there and came up with a plan and clear instructions on how to get there. Most importantly, the weekly check-in sessions where I received the full benefit of her positive, pragmatic and encouraging personality have really helped to keep me on track towards my goals. Finally I am starting to see the weight come off in a slow-but-steady and sustainable way!

I met Jo when I was keen to learn lifelong principles of eating well. It's taken me 40 odd years to work out that skipping meals and avoiding food groups doesn't make me lose weight - infact quite the reverse. Her sensible approach has genuinely changed the way I think and eat. She assured me it wasn't just me who couldn't resist an open packet of biscuits/nuts/chocolate in the cupboard and taught me sensible tricks to make life easier. My mother spent all of my childhood on some fad diet or other and I am determined my daughter will not see me 'diet' but instead will see me exercise and eat well to fuel my body and have a healthy and sensible relationship with food. Jo has helped to make this a reality and I feel like she's got my back. It really helps that Jo is fun, sensitive, supportive and feels 'normal' and not a kale eating lunatic. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend using her as an investment in yourself.

I was lucky enough to have a 12 week program with jo and from day 1 she was incredible. She seemed to get what my issues with food and exercise were straight away and by the second time we spoke she had tailored a plan for me, and had really listened to everything I had told her. We went on such a journey together over the 12 weeks I felt she was always there for me and as delighted as I was with my final results and reaching my target weight! From tiny day to day tips to help me dealing with big events, including 10 days in France, jo was exactly what I needed. I have made changes for life and am so grateful to jo.

I can't thank Jo enough for all the help and support she gave me. After 15 years trying to lose weight, the penny finally dropped with my chats with Jo. From our very first session,​ everything she said made so much sense. Her down to earth approach and positivity was infectious along with her great sense of humour that I knew this time it would be different. Now armed with Jo's tools and techniques instead of declining invitations I now can accept any invitation that comes in and for the first time in as long as I can remember I am looking forward to Christmas and all its festivities. 2 stone down means I have a great new wardrobe to go with the new much happier me! Thanks again Jo!

Jo was recommended to me by a mutual friend who knew I was struggling to feel in control of my eating habits. From my first consultation, Jo was a perfect balance of professionalism, ensuring total confidentiality and putting me at ease with her respectful, nonjudgemental very approachable nature whilst also maintaining a very friendly, 'human' character I could have a laugh with! The steps Jo gave me were tailored perfectly for my needs and immediately helped me start putting my thoughts in perspective without me feeling overwhelmed by the challenge ahead. Since seeing Jo I have felt significantly more positive and in control of my eating habits and have seen surprisingly quick results! I would highly recommend Jo to anyone looking for a qualified dietician with extensive knowledge who shows evident care and interest in you and your specific requirements.

Jo is incredibly knowledgable about all things food and diet. She helped me hugely come to a far more balanced less emotional way of looking at food and realising that it wasn’t as complicated as I tried to make it. She explained things as in depth as I wanted them and having worked with her I have a much better understanding of nutrition. While working with Jo she spent ages working through some DNA blood test results I had received, giving me the low down on what all the blurb meant without overcomplicating it. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough. She is a proper qualified dietitian in an ocean of online nutritionists.

Jo is knowledgeable, friendly, approachable, non judgemental and creates an atmosphere of trust and understanding. As a dietician, she provides me with vital information on how to create a balanced diet and to listen to my body, but also gives valuable insight into how your mind plays an important role. She provides me with handy practical tips and ways to manage a variety of social occasions. I have been on a diet rollercoaster for years and Jo is finally teaching me how to get off it, for good!
