Hello! My name is Jo. My passion is supporting mums on their parenting journey. I set up Carlisle Sling Library in 2015 so that I could help families learn about the fabulous benefits you can get from carrying your baby close. In 2021 I started my Master’s Degree in person centred Counselling and Psychotherapy and began volunteering for Together We. I loved being part of the organisation and since April 2022 I have also been working as a Maternal Social Link worker for our very exciting new maternal metal health project. I work with mums in various ways to help them find support within the community.
Outside of work/Uni I love spending time with my partner and our 3 children. In my spare time I enjoy yoga, reading, making and decorating cakes, sewing and crochet.
My role within Talk is to deliver person centred Counselling and Psychotherapy interventions
Supporting mums in the community as part of our Maternal Mental Health project, with sling hire and various support options.
