Qualified Teacher & Trainer, Emotional Freedom Techniques Master Trainer of Trainers, Business & Social Media Coach!


From being trapped to finding freedom

Today I am a Master Emotional Freedom Technique Trainer of Trainers (EFT or Tapping) and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner and before this, I worked in education, as a teacher, for 20 years.

My first experience of EFT & NLP happened when my life suddenly changed and I struggled to overcome the issues this change had caused. To help myself recover I delved deep into both modalities and went on to learn and qualify in the techniques that helped me on the road to emotional recovery.

The techniques I learnt were so successful that friends and family began asking me how EFT and NLP could help them with their own emotional challenges. This motivated me to become, firstly as an EFT practitioner and then I passed all the criteria to become an NLP Practitioner and ultimately I turned my newfound skills into a full-time career.

I have now been working as a Master Emotional Freedom Technique Trainer and NLP Practitioner, specialising in helping both adults and children find freedom from the issues that are causing them distress, anxiety, fear and stress. 

Recently I have used my knowledge of education and combined it with my EFT & NLP skills to develop the "Tap, Tap Happy Programme". I am now using this programme to help children and young people who struggle to deal with a variety of emotional issues, including coping with the school day. The "Tap, Tap Happy Programme" has successfully given many of the children I work with the tools to cope with these problems and is empowering them to deal with life in the modern world.

I am a fully insured member of EFT & Mindfulness Centre and EFTMRA. I hold an up to date DBS certificate and since the 25th May 2018 Tap to be Amazing has been compliant with GDPR.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation, please get in touch with me today.

What Clients Are Saying


Jo is a breath of fresh air. She has a huge wealth of knowledge and professional expertise, but her natural and playful way with both children and adults is something that just can't be taught. It's pure magic. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Jo and I cannot speak highly enough of her work and her approach.
