Back to Basics Health Solutions
My goal is to help you to get your health back on track, lose weight, and improve your overall well-being.
For over 20 years, I have been teaching men and women like you how to lose weight and keep it off for good! By simply understanding what are the right foods to eat to get your body burning fat. It can be so confusing these days to know what is good or bad, in or out, right or wrong foods to eat. It can be frustrating to know where to start – and there is a lot of misinformation out there about these kinds of things. Many of my clients think they are eating healthy, but today’s hidden calories and confusing packaging make it so hard to know if you are doing the right thing.
Because of this and the misleading marketing around the work ‘diet’ I have help transform the lives of men and women around Australia by creating a tailored get “back to basics healthy lifestyle” plan to ensure the foods you eat are designed to help you lose weight and live a happier, healthier life.

What is health & wellbeing coaching and is it right for me?
Do you ever feel like it is ground hog day… different day but everything is the same!
Most people who come to me find they are on the ‘diet’ merry go round and confused about what they should be eating to achieve the results they are looking for. There is a mind field information out there and now you are spending all of your spare time surfing the net and reading books only to find they are more confused than ever before.
One of the reasons Back to Basics members are successful is because they understand how to quickly read food labels and how they can include normal everyday foods they enjoy eating and make it part of a healthy lifestyle plan the whole family will enjoy.
As a Health Coach I help you with meal planning & cooking ideas, offer support & accountability and most of all be the person you can talk to for advice or help when you need it.
I started with a personal trainer and began to lose weight before my weight loss stalled. I increased my exercise to 6 days a week but still could not lose any more weight.
During one of my training sessions I was introduced to Jo, she spoke about how tweaking my diet a little would make a big difference.
40kg lighter…I now have fun competing in sports.
– Sam Giblett – GNM Plumbing Townsville
I have suffered with painful stomach issues most of my life.
I went to see Jo about losing weight and haven’t looked back since.
5 weeks later… 9.3kg lighter & 53cm from around my body.
My journey is still not complete… I no longer have puffy ankles, my skin is the best it is has ever been and my stomach pains are gone.
I haven’t felt this good in ages.
– Amanda Fraser Age 55
I have lost over 27kg since I began seeing Jo, my neurologist has recently cleared me of my symptoms.
I am so happy to drop from size 18-20 clothing to size 12-14.

No – I have clients all around Australia and overseas. Whilst I live in Townsville my goal is to help as many people as I can to achieve their weight loss goals. Location is not an issue as long as you have access to the internet or phone.

We where designed to eat real food… let’s face it we all enjoy eating. I always recommend a variety of fruits, vegetables, salad and meat items to be included into your everyday diet. During your Food Planning Session, I will combine a variety of foods you enjoy eating into your every day lifestyle weight loss plan.

This is really important and will be discussed in your Discovery Session. I personally do not take any of my clients off medications whilst there are under the direction of a Dr. In saying that my main goal is to assist you to become the healthier you, so you can eventually reduce or eliminate your medication by changing the foods you are eating and losing weight.

Weight loss results will vary, however clinical statistics show during a 5 week period females can expect to lose between 6-8kg and a male 8-10kg.
