I’m Jo Surkitt, a Wellness Educator, Practitioner and Keynote speaker who’s passion is to help you ‘Create Positive Change’ both in the Workplace and at home.
Drawing on over 20 years’ experience in health and wellbeing, mindfulness, emotional intelligence and positive psychology, I create custom programs, workshops and retreats for the corporate and lifestyle sectors and am equally at home working 1:1 to increase your vitality, happiness and overall wellbeing.
Since 2002, I have been changing the lives of people all over the country through my extensive knowledge and years of experience creating programs individually designed to create work life harmony and ensure wellbeing becomes a way of life.
“Our retreats and workshops are designed to help you achieve your wellness goals. They enable you to live your life to its full potential by providing you with the knowledge and skills you need to create positive change and transform your daily routine.” Jo Surkitt, Founder
I have worked in the Wellness industry for 20 years. I co-owned a Natural Therapies college and clinic in Melbourne, but then decided to make the sea-change and moved to the Surf Coast, Victoria in 2006.
I have a background in Corporate Wellness, Nutrition, Massage, Professional Development, Positive Psychology, Emotional Intelligence, Medical Intuition, Reflexology, Herbal Medicine, Energetic healing, Holistic Counselling, Aromatherapy, Flower Essences, Wellness and Mindset Coaching and Reiki.
I specialise in a range of areas:
I am passionate about sharing my wisdom and experience that I have gained as a practitioner, educator, speaker and mum. My journey into wellness began when I was working in the travel & tourism industry and I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue, Bilharzia, Bells Palsy and Fibromyalgia, all around the same time and no western medicine or techniques were improving my illnesses.
Through my Intuitive intelligence, alternative medicine, lifestyle and food changes I was able to eliminate and reduce the majority of my symptoms and live a life of happiness, fun, exploration and adventure.
I believe you need to address your emotional, physical and mental health to create ultimate well-being, happiness and life balance.
In my workshops and retreats I uses my Intuitive Intelligence to INSPIRE, MOTIVATE, EDUCATE and assist you to IMPROVE your overall happiness and wellbeing. I add value and knowledgeable tools and techniques to your 'Wellness Toolbox'. I also ensure there is a great deal of FUN and LAUGHTER which lifts your vitality and overall happiness.
I am a passionate traveller, I have the Wanderlust gene that drives me to continually explore the world. I have travelled to many countries (currently 64) learning new cultures and discovering different ways people create a healthy lifestyle; from tribes in Africa to Shaman healers in Peru through to innovative European approaches to natural medicine and wellness, working closely with the Bach Institute in England. I am also very intrigued about the Blue Zones in the world and have added them to my ‘Bucket List’.
My sessions endeavour to create a long-lasting inspiration to help you continue with new, positive changes as part of your lifestyle, both at work and at home. To find a life balance (overall harmony) as well as rejuvenating the mind, body and spirit.
I am dedicated in working towards your life enrichment through the introduction of new experiences, clearing out old habits and patterns and the restoration of balance.
I am truly blessed to work with so many talented, inspiring people that are ready to transform their lives. I am so proud of all of my clients – they achieve the most amazing things during our time together and go on to be live the most wonderful life’s. They live far and wide and continue to inspire me every day.
