All About Joanne
Joanne Reid Rodrigues is a registered science-based nutritional therapist and cognitive behavioural therapist – she has been studying, writing about, and teaching her life-management and weight-management programme for thirty years. Joanne is one of the UK’s foremost therapists and life-management trainers.
Joanne is the author of Life Transformation Diet and Slim, Happy & Free. Since founding her Slimming Together programme in 1986, aged just twenty-four, she has enjoyed a successful career as an internationally-acclaimed inspirational speaker, a writer, and a trainer in both the private and corporate sectors. She frequently appears in both print and broadcast media.
Joanne is a long-term student of transpersonal psychology and a practitioner of A Course In Miracles and Mindfulness, which has resulted in her teachings encompassing the trinity of mind, body, and spirit. As a recovered junk food addict, Joanne has a depth of personal experience and empathy, and she teaches by example, coaching her clients to transcend self-defeating behaviours and habits as she herself has accomplished.

Joanne lived in Los Angeles, California for some years, and during her time there, she presented her intensives at The Agape International Spiritual Centre at Buckingham Parkway, Culver City. In addition, she taught her Slimming Together programme for The City of Malibu and at the New JCC at Milken in West Hills as well as the Learning Curve in West Hollywood, and the Bodhi Tree on Melrose.

Joanne has created her unique Authentic Confidence life management intensive course to impart life skills to people who are ready to take the next step in their personal development.
