Mindfulness and compassion have been at the heart of my life for many years. I delight in being able to share the resources that they offer with my fellow human beings.

I have been practising yoga and meditation for over 35 years and am currently studying with a Zen teacher. I practised as a Homeopath for 18 years and now work full-time as a Mindfulness and Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher and Trainer, teaching and deepening into the practices that have sustained me for so many years.

I have taught Mindfulness courses since 2001 and I have been a member of the Core Training Team for the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice, Bangor University, UK, since 2004. I taught for 5years on their MSc in Mindfulness-Based Approaches and I facilitate on their Professional Training Programmes and am also a supervisor and mentor for Mindfulness teachers.

I have written two chapters for Sarah Silverton’s book ‘The Mindfulness Breakthrough’ (currently being re-launched as ‘The Mindfulness Key’) which has been translated into 8 languages.

In 2014, I was fortunate to train to teach the Mindful Self Compassion Course with Chris Germer and Kristin Neff and am now a Certified Teacher and Trainer in MSC. This has enabled me to add a rich vein to my teaching by bringing compassion centre stage.
