Jo is a fully qualified, classical homeopath and is registered with the New Zealand Council of Homeopaths. She has a clinic in Papamoa Beach where she is available by appointment for consultations on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and is also available for consultations every Wednesday at The Good Food Store, 35 MacDonald Street, Mount Maunganui.
She is originally from the UK but has lived in New Zealand with her husband and son since February 2012.
Jo says, ‘My first ‘WOW’ experience with Homeopathy occurred whilst I was in the first year of my studies. I had a painful lower back injury that made my back so sore and stiff that I couldn’t stand up straight and could hardly move.
I took a single dose of Arnica 200c, and within 5 minutes the pain was completely gone and I was able to move freely again! From that moment on, I wanted to learn more about Homeopathy and how I could use it to help as many people as possible.’
Jo successfully completed a diploma in homeopathy (Dip Hom) in 2019 at the Tauranga College of Natural Health and Homeopathy, and then started practicing homeopathy at The Right Remedy Homeopathy Clinic in Papamoa Beach.
Jo is also a registered homeopath with the New Zealand Council of Homeopaths (NZCH):
NZCH is a registration body for professional homeopaths in New Zealand in which all members are expected to practice within the NZCH Rules of Practice and Code of Ethics. They must meet certain criteria of on-going professional development, clinical safety and professional standards in order to remain a registered member.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017 and spent the next couple of years completing a grueling treatment schedule including surgeries, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormone therapy.
Fortunately, I had an incredible support system around me of health professionals, friends, family and work colleagues who helped and supported me through my treatment. Most importantly, I had an amazing Homeopath, Jennie Rassell, who worked closely with me and prescribed many different Homeopathic remedies along the way. This really helped my body tolerate each treatment and minimise the side effects.
Homeopathy not only allowed me to carry on working throughout my treatment, but also enabled me to continue my studies and graduate in 2019 in good health.
I have used Homeopathy on numerous occasions for myself, my family, friends and clients. I still never cease to be amazed at the truly transformative effect that such a natural, gentle form of medicine can have on such a deep level.
I am particularly drawn to the fact that homeopathy can be very useful on a mental emotional level, not just the physical. It can often help to shift old patterns of thinking and adjust stubborn patterns of behaviour that no longer serve us, which can really help to bring about deep and lasting changes and healing.
I am passionate about Homeopathy and my mission is to use this amazing system of medicine to empower people to follow their unique journey towards good health and great life balance.
