"Really beneficial – explained so much to me. Having experienced a taste of Jo Rae’s individual style on a retreat, I was keen to book onto one of her 1 day
workshops. It was a highly informative day where I learnt a great deal about the menopause and the different experiences of other women. Jo delivers her
information in a user friendly way that everyone can relate to. She is honest, empathetic, lively and fun – nothing shocks her! She made everything
understandable and acceptable and left you feeling positive and empowered about this stage in a woman’s life. I would highly recommend her workshops
and women’s circles."
"Your energy is amazing, I would love to learn more from you."
"You have provided me with a new perspective."
"You are vibrant, warm, approachable & real, more please!"
"I've found the sessions really useful and very interesting. I feel that you've given me so many valuable tools already. You have inspired and enthused me and I
feel uplifted already. And when I don't, I just use one of your techniques and it genuinely helps."
