Jo Good

Swimming Instructor & Coach

WIBN Groups


Hi, I'm Jo Good, I am a qualified swimming instructor, open water coach and mermaid instructor.

I provide bespoke private 1:1 swimming lessons for adults and children of all abilities from complete beginner to advanced technique. I specialise in teaching adults with Aquaphobia and as an Advanced Aquaphobia Coach I am qualified to deliver a specialist learning programme designed specifically for those with a fear of water. I also specialise in helping children with SEN or overcoming a fear/bad experience to swim.

I also provide coaching in open water, swimming outdoors in rivers, lakes and the sea. I swim all year round and believe strongly in the mental health benefits of swimming outside.

Finally, as a qualified mermaid instructor I provide mermaid pool parties and experiences for children from aged 6+.

My lessons, coaching and parties are predominantly based in Southend and Rayleigh.
