Kathryn (Mum to Isla and Caitlin):
I contacted Jo as both my daughters are competitive athletes who were performing well in training but weren’t able to translate this into competition. I am so glad I did! She immediately put all of us at ease, listened to both the girls and was able to pinpoint the issues very quickly. She then tailored a series of sessions, both individual and joint, that enabled them to successfully address these. She was very skilled at relating to the different ages (8 and 13 years old) and sports (athletics and gymnastics), so much so, that the girls positively looked forward to her visits. The results have been amazing, my eldest has had a season filled with PB’s so far, making two county finals in her first year in the age group and is exceeding her coach’s expectations and my youngest has made huge progress in conquering her competition nerves, making it through to National Finals and staying on the beam! At all times Jo has been extremely personable, professional, flexible and reliable –the results speak for themselves and I would not hesitate to recommend her.
Isla, 8-years, Gymnast:
Jo has helped me to overcome my nerves, not just in competition but also in training. I have improved my work because the techniques that Jo has given me really help me believe in myself.
Caitlin, 12-years, Sprint Hurdler:
Jo is really friendly and has helped me build my confidence by teaching me to use her techniques. She explains why things are happening in a way that I understand and her techniques are easy to use. I take my sheets with me to competitions to remind me of what we have discussed and to help me focus before my races. I feel as if I can tell her my worries because I know that she will know how I can overcome them. I am enjoying athletics again and am running much better in competition now because Jo has brought out the best in me.
