We were referred to Jo when our son was told he was not welcome to start Reception at our local school. The new school after 3 weeks were struggling and suggested we get an assessment with Jo. This was the best thing ever! Life changing doesn't really come close. B's symptoms were extreme and for that Reception year we had a lot of ups and downs. The old school had banded around labels such as Autism and ADHD but deep down I didn't think this was right. B was so different at home than in the school environment. A year on and B is having an amazing start to Year 1. He has won the Headteachers award and is thriving in all subjects. The change is huge. B now has a future. We had thought we might have ended up in a specialist school as things were so bad. Thank goodness for Jo. She is amazing with B but equally amazing with me. Giving support and advice. I am so indebted and grateful for being referred to this amazing therapy. B was not naughty nor did he have a mainstream label. He has retained primitive reflexes and life is rosy. For any parents struggling, there is light at the end of the tunnel. I can now see it......

Jo is very knowledgeable and supportive with my son who's 8 years old. He engaged with her straight away and enjoyed his first meeting with her and she made it fun. He struggled with his confident and being able to deal with certain situations at school. We saw significant changes of his maturity and emotions after using Jo's techniques over 6 weeks. Resulting with great feed back from his teacher and a much happier child. He has also noticed how different he feels and always looks forward to meeting her on the next appointment. I would highly recommend.

I took my daughter to see Jo around a year ago, we have been working with her monthly during this time, from the initial consultation Jo took the time to talk to my daughter directly to ensure they established a good relationship and listen to her working through our concerns. She explained the process to her so she understood what we were doing and why, then showed her the retained reflexes explaining them as she did, as the months passed and we re checked our progress the difference in the reflexes was staggering. I gave my daughter the option to stop on many an occasion but she expressed that she had felt a difference and wanted to continue, she looks forward to our appointments and has developed her own rapport with Jo. I have recommend Jo to numerous people already for a variety of concerns from insomnia, anxiety, and general behaviour.

I can not rate Jo highly enough. I made the appointment feeling sceptical and hoping to rule out this treatment as a need for us but the contrary was true. I am so pleased. It has been life changing for us all. Our son is now dry at night, completely. He communicates his emotions so effectively and he has grown over an inch, with his teachers noticing the calming effect and improved interaction he is having at school. Jo explains everything so well and is wonderful with our son. I think every child should have an assessment and experience the benefits. The cost is worth it, money well spent.

My eldest son is dyslexic and can be very emotional. He has been seeing Jo for around a year and her therapies have had a significant impact on his behaviours. Prior to seeing Jo he had done Vision Therapy and endless Occupational Therapy with little success and I feel that Jo’s therapies are slowly, but surely, fixing the underlying problems these more ‘conventional’ treatments have failed to address. His emotional control is improving, his resilience, while still variable, has improved, his eye tracking is now great and he can now hold a pencil correctly – something the OT and school had given up on. Most extraordinarily of all, he no longer feels the need to fidget or move constantly which we had always been a feature of his waking hours. In short it feels as though he has matured about three years in the space of one – and I am hopeful that there are more improvements to come as we continue to work through the various treatments I am not naturally drawn to ‘alternative’ therapies but I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jo to anyone who feels that their child is not thriving or ‘fitting in’ as well as they could – she has a great way with children and, while I don’t pretend to understand the details of what she is doing, the results are unarguable!

Jo is a very warm caring lady who really wants to help the people she treats. My boys love Jo, she is very professional and takes her time to explain exactly what things mean and whats shes doing.. We have seen great results in my boys confidence, being able to speak up for themselves, less anxiety, positive changes in behaviours and they are happier children. I would highly recommend Jo to any parent or person who thinks they may have retained reflexes.
