Hi there!

It’s so nice to have you here! My name is Jo and I am a relaxation coach and qualified Relax Kids coach based in Basingstoke, Hampshire.

I have worked with children for over 20 years and I am a fully qualified NVQ3 and Level 3 Childcare Practitioner and experienced Learning Support Assistant. I loved working alongside so many families and children and after a lot of thought and research, I enrolled to become a Relax Kids Coach and qualified in summer 2019!

My personal life experiences have given me a depth of knowledge that enables me to simply be me! I feel a natural empathy towards children’s emotional dependency. Whilst I was working in a primary school, my eyes were opened to the huge lack of emotional development and support that the children had and in turn inspired me to become a coach, so I could help families and children on their journey to understanding and regulating their emotions.

With all of my previous career experience, I feel so privileged that I can be there to help make a difference to families. I too am a proud Mum to two beautiful (not-so-young) children – Katie and Connor and my husband has been by my side since the start of this journey, supporting me in every way that he can. Not forgetting my lovely little dog Jessie too!
