Inviting you to see your greatest challenges with your teenagers as the doorway to finding your true self


If you're seeking a safe, non-judgemental space where your voice will be heard, your experiences understood and your needs acknowledged, then...


Let's Talk!

Speaker   Mentor    Writer     Comedian   Wildfire Woman


You deserve acceptance, acknowledgement, encouragement, to feel worthy, to feel confident,

to feel seen, heard, understood and respected


How do I know this?


My past experiences told me I was better off doing life by myself.


Feeling stunted by poisonous words, harsh looks and dismissive behaviours set me up for a life of intense loneliness.


I became a master of pretending.


My well-rehearsed fake smile, false confidence and white lies

shielded me from facing the crumbling mess I was inside.


Constantly preparing my nervous system for criticism, judgement and humiliation made life exhausting.


At times I even felt like death was the only way to find peace


The first time I felt like I could show some of my true self was in my late 40’s when I was encouraged to share my stories in a safe, non-judgemental environment.


I learned the power of being with people who could hear me, accept me

and still love me without trying to change, fix or rush me.


As I developed confidence in being heard, I slowly learned to listen to myself

and recognise that all the answers I need are inside me.


I learned true self-worth is a choice and that my beliefs about myself could be changed!

What People Say

Jo's natural charisma caught my attention immediately, but it was her realist approach, her challenging ideas and her sense of humour that really had me intrigued. I've watched her grow and witnessed some extraordinary personal expansion, which led me to invite Jo as my very first guest speaker.


And of course she was a huge hit. Her ability to connect with the audience, provide valuable & practical content that my guests could implement immediately was simply amazing. I can't wait to have Jo back sharing her stories, wisdom and jokes with us again.

Jen Bettridge

Jo has an infectious grin that lights up a room. Her zany style will make you giggle with delight. Definitely entertaining and a joy to be in the presence of.

Jen McCall

Jo is a breath of fresh air! I absolutely love her passion & take on life! I could listen to her all day!!

Deb Heirdsfield

Rachel Dickey

I recommend Jo from my heart. Jo deeply deeply felt what I felt, she knows what it’s like to feel unloved, she held a sacred space for me to acknowledge and realise I’m not “wrong” I’m not sick, it’s just the pain of that child (my inner child)

Roxana Catalina Alupoaie
