Jo is a native English speaking editor and writer with a PhD in Psychotherapy Studies awarded by the University of Sheffield in the UK. She is also trained in a range of mindfulness-based interventions, including MBCT, MBSR and ACT. The ACT approach is a practical mindfulness-based coaching intervention which trains the mind to overcome challenges that block us from achieving our goals. ACT does not require a meditation practice and Jo's ACT coaching course for writers can be completed in just eight sessions spread over four to eight weeks.
Jo has edited thousands of published papers and articles written by a range of academic researchers and other writers for whom English is a second language. She is a professional member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders in London, UK.
Jo is widely travelled, having lived and worked in India, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Mexico.
