Exercise

Exercise psychology is concerned with helping individuals to make changes to their exercise patterns that will benefit their health and well-being. Perhaps you feel ready to embark on a more active lifestyle but you are unsure where to start. Or maybe you are already a gym or fitness club member but you are experiencing lapses in your motivation, focus, and/or enjoyment around exercise. Jo helps clients to establish and maintain long-term lifestyle changes, through looking at areas such as:

  • Developing a self-awareness of your exercise perceptions (and potentially challenging them!)
  • Identifying your personal barriers to exercise and learning how to overcome them
  • Learning how to create your own self-motivational climate
  • Learning how to set goals that get results
  • Increasing self-belief around achieving your goals
  • Building confidence with respect to feared activities, e.g. Going to the gym alone, trying new classes
  • Making exercise a habit: Learning how to stay on track and avoid exercise slumps

Jo offers individual consultations that can incorporate an active element, e.g. meeting in a park for a walk. She also delivers exercise psychology workshops to members and coaches of gym and fitness clubs.
