Offering a range of tailored services designed around you or your organisation’s needs – from warm-up meeting or conference sessions to regular workshops and laughter clubs, my name is Jo Bluett and I am a Laughter Facilitator and Laughter Yoga Leader working to help bring more fun and laughter into peoples’ lives.
I believe in giving people the opportunity to have more control of their health and a more positive outlook on challenges in their lives. Through my own experience and extensive volunteer work, I firmly believe that laughter can make a difference. I have seen first-hand the benefits it brings to people – managing stress, improving physical health and emotional well-being.
“Laugh more – enjoy life more.”
From Interest to Profession
Back in 2002, after almost 20 years working in the private sector, I was working as a business development consultant in a large corporate organisation; throughout my career I was delivering and facilitating training workshops and seminars designed specifically to support and develop employees in reaching their full potential.
The onset of personal chronic health problems meant I had to re-evaluate my life and priorities, learning to manage my health very carefully and although there were limitations in what I could do, I began to accept that my life had changed and to appreciate every moment and new opportunity that was presented to me.
In 2008 I attended a laughter session with fellow Laughter Network member Jo Eadie. I knew immediately that I had found a way to combine my passion of sharing fun and laughter and extensive training background to help others, who, like me, live with a long term health condition, have experienced acute or chronic stress or just want to make positive changes in their lives.
I went on to train as a Laughter Facilitator and Laughter Yoga Leader with the Laughter Network, becoming a Member, and I am also registered with Laughter Yoga International a movement allowing laughter professionals to network and publicise their services.
Today, based in Edinburgh, I work across Scotland and throughout the UK and am also a practising Bowen Therapist, qualified and registered with the Bowen Training Academy of Australia (BTAA) and the Bowen Association UK (BAUK).
