Initial Appointment with Jo Abbott
The ‘Initial Appointment’ gives you the opportunity to tell your story, share your thoughts and feelings about your health and wellness: where you have come from, to where you desire to be. These two valuable hours are spent assessing, exploring and discussing each contributing factor of your current health condition allowing yourself and Jo to re-structure and re-build a programme of health that maximises your potential and is focused on your current needs and life time goals.
The importance of an initial appointment should not be underestimated. Scientifically, the evidence supports that time spent exploring the patient’s story, the evidence based practice, interpreting the findings, and driving home the clinical reasoning is the foundation to success.

INTEGRATED SYSTEMS MODEL (ISM) CERTIFIED
A model, not a methodology which has evolved from 40 years of collaborative clinical and education experience. It is a framework to help clinicians organize their knowledge and provide the best possible treatment for the individual patient. Since every clinician has a different skill set, an ISM therapist will never be a clone of someone else nor will they only adhere to specific therapies or algorithms. Each therapist is as unique and individual as the people they seek to help, why would therapy be any different? The Integrated Systems Model umbrellas all others.
