Jo is a fully qualified Bach Flower Registered Practitioner and is listed on the Bach Foundation International Register.
Jo has used the crisis formula, more often known as Rescue Remedy, to aid her whilst regaining her riding confidence. She has also used it on her horses when they are placed in stressful situations such as attending a clinic at a new location.
With no other experience of the remedies, but with an unbound curiosity, Jo attended the Level 1 course at Mount Vernon, the Bach Centre in Oxfordshire, home of Dr Bach himself. The course gave a basic grounding in each of the 38 remedies, their benefits and uses, and experience in selecting and producing bespoke remedies. Jo then attended a Level 2 course which gives more detail on each flower essence as well as assessing similarities and differences to enable selection of the most appropriate essences when creating a bespoke remedy. The Level 3 course was more focused on the consultation aspect of providing an effective service, and was followed up with three sets of assignments, which were passed with flying colours.
The remedies are all natural flower essences and work to balance moods and emotions.
From a holistic point of view Jo feels that her equine clients will benefit if their riders and owners are less tense and nervous around them, for example. However, the remedies were researched by Dr Bach to work on all emotions, so Jo is willing and able to help anyone.
Jo will carry out a consultation whereby she will explain Dr Bach's system, and seek to understand the emotions affecting the Client, before making up a bespoke remedy. Each treatment bottle of remedy will last approximately 3 weeks at the prescribed rate.
Alternatively Jo stocks her own Nervous Rider Remedy which she found particularly useful when suffering a confidence crisis. This is available without consultation however should results not be as hoped a consultation and bespoke remedy would be advised in the first instance.
