Mindfulness Training Course

Compassionate Mindfulness Resilience Training

Four weekly sessions of 2.5 hours each, live online via Zoom.


Therapeutic Mindfulness one to one

Meet with me one to one for slower, more individualised practical sessions enabling a more therapeutic space to explore your inner experiences.


Student Counselling

I am working towards qualification as an integrative (mainly person centred) counsellor.  My interest is grief, loss and trauma services.  


Yoga & mindfulness holidays

I work with a yoga teacher to deliver yoga and mindfulness retreats in Malvern, the UK and internationally. 

My Approach

I am a fully trained Compassionate Mindfulness Teacher.  My aim is to help you balance direct insight with self-compassion. I can support with a range of challenges: anxiety, worry, grief, sadness, job changes, fears, losses, relationship challenges, illness and pain.


I combine counselling skills developed as a student counsellor ( empathy, acceptance. mindful listening and non-judgement) to explore what we learn as I teach the mindful practices of compassion, curiosity, being present with reality and soothing/calming techniques.


When I asked my clients to describe my approach and what I offer, they tend to say things like 'a lot of kindness', 'a great deal of acceptance/non-judgement', 'a real understanding of struggle and suffering'.  They often comment how safe they feel, how easy they find it to open up and how they feel I personalise sessions just for them.  They often comment that I'm also refreshingly open, real and congruent with them which helps them to feel safe to be 'real' too.

About me

I have practiced mindfulness since I was a teenager. Having lived in Asia for a number of years, I was a student of Titch Nat Hanh, a Vietnamese Monk who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, by Martin Luther King. 


I recently retired from teaching after 30 years as a school leader and educator. I'm a Mum, a dog lover and survivor of trauma myself.

I look forward to working with you and  meeting you.

I wanted you to know that I woke up without a feeling of dread and impending doom for the first time in months. You are a gift from the Universe!  I am really grateful to you.
