A True Health Coaching Experience

Meet Joanna, Your Health Coach at Edinburgh Health

At Edinburgh Health, we are thrilled to introduce Joanna, a passionate advocate for holistic health and well-being. For the past 17 years, Joanna has dedicated her life to supporting individuals on their journey to optimal health. Her approach is rooted in the understanding that each person is unique, and her mission is to meet you where you are, helping you bridge the gap to where you want to be.

Joanna's philosophy centers on the idea that health is true wealth. By evaluating all aspects of health—nutrition, stress management, sleep, movement, social connections, emotional health, and spirituality—she helps clients set realistic goals to achieve balance and vitality in their lives.

Bringing a wealth of experience in somatic practices such as massage and yoga, complemented by a trauma-informed perspective, Joanna addresses not just the physical symptoms but also the emotional root causes and traumas contributing to imbalances. This holistic approach redefines 'disease' and focuses on creating genuine healing and equilibrium.

Her background in nutrition is a cornerstone of her practice, ensuring the body is nourished as a foundational pillar of health. Joanna is also fascinated by the incredible resources within our own bodies, particularly the power of breathwork. Exploring different breathing techniques is an integral part of her approach, unlocking profound benefits for her clients.

As a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach (FMCHC), Joanna provides a unique combination of wellness expertise, nurturing support, goal setting, and accountability to help you make and sustain real lifestyle changes. Whether your goals are big, small, or difficult, Joanna's personalized, holistic, and spiritual approach will resonate with you.

Together, you can create a personalized plan that honors your unique path and helps you thrive. Health is your wealth, and Joanna is here to help you claim it.

Why are health coaches so important in Functional Medicine?

Health Coaches are necessary catalysts for behavioural change, working together with Functional Medicine practitioners who develop the most comprehensive protocol for the individual.    

The Health Coach helps you to implement your individualised Functional Medicine health care program and make sure that you have all the tools needed to follow it.

Not all health coaches are equal, as quality training/experience is vital. We believe that the gold standard Health Coaching Certification from the Institute of Functional Medicine (fully approved by the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching) is one of the most elite training standards currently available. 

At Edinburgh Health, we want to ensure you receive all the support needed on your health journey. Therefore, health coaching sessions are included in every initial consultation. If you book your follow-up in premium, ongoing health coaching support is also included.

Contact Joanna directly if you have any questions:

Jo’s personality was exactly what I needed

I very much enjoyed and benefited from my weekly sessions with Jo, my FM Health Coach

 The things I have really liked about the program are:-

  • Although the improvements have been amazing – life-changing – at no stage did I feel we were pushing too hard – it truly felt like taking baby steps
  • I felt in control of the process, with Jo’s help – rather than getting pulled along
  • Jo showed great listening/interpretation skills – and she would always explain the theory, and the best-practice, of each step we took – as well as the expected outcomes
  • She quickly saw that I am quite analytical, and developed a variety of metrics that allowed us to measure progress – and I found this very motivating.
  • Jo’s personality was exactly what I needed, and thrived on – really considerate and caring, creative, intuitive, good communicator/listener, quietly influential, motivating, and very practical
  • Just what the doctor ordered!!

Joanna is very supportive

My health coaching sessions were very positive indeed. It was a great way of being able to look at the different aspects of my life holistically and in a joined up way. Joanna is very supportive, naturally empathetic and insightful. She has the ability to make the sessions feel optimistic and uplifting. It was an empowering experience to realise that I am able to move forward in this supportive way.

Highly recommended!

Coaching sessions with Joanna are absolutely mind blowing. My life has changed 180 degrees in a positive way. I have chronic condition not treatable by NHS. It took me years to find someone who help me stand up on my feet again. 

Thanks to Health Coaching sessions with Joanna I started healthy diet which helped me in many aspects of my life and to take control on my own body. My nervous system is calmer, I have much more energy, I lost weight, I feel lively again. 

Finally, someone listen carefully and trying to find the best way to help on any level. I can always count on Joanna and ask any question I have with return of gentle guidance and loving support emotionally, spiritually and physically. 

Highly recommended! If you want to change your life and stand up on your feet clean up your fridge first and start your journey to the new, better life. Healthy diet combined with exercises and meditation is the key to clean your mind, body and soul.

Joanna is the right person!

Working with Joanna helped me to create an optimal plan to implement diet and life-style changes step by step to create long-lasting effects. Together we found ways to accomplish my goals, by keeping track of my progress and obstacles, as well as finding solutions to challenges along the way. 

The most significant overall change I have noticed has been believing in myself and my characters strengths to be allies in process of being in charge of my own health again. 

If you are looking for someone who really knows how to motivate in very gentle and positive way as opposed to forcing changes that one might not be ready to make, Joanna is the right person.

Start Today!

Let's work together to see how I can help. I welcome clients from every race, creed, colour, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation and gender expression. I provide a safe and empathic space for anyone who is committed to working with me to improve their health.
