Who am I?

I am a mindfulness teacher with a special interest in what encourages and supports people to continue with formal and informal mindfulness practice after the 8-week course.  My master’s thesis for the MA in Mindfulness-Based Approaches at Bangor University addressed the potential of interest as a skilful facilitator for self-regulated mindfulness practice.  Personally, I am interested in sustaining and deepening practice, and inspired by the courage of those who have joined me on mindfulness courses, retreats and training.

What do I do?

I teach 8-week courses in the community and non-clinical settings in West Surrey, and bespoke sessions and courses in workplace, healthcare and educational settings in Surrey and London.  I have facilitated courses for research trials for schools and healthcare professionals; and explored the challenges of offering mindfulness to foundation doctors and medical students (under pilot programmes supported by the OMF Accessibility Grant). Witnessing first-hand the positive impact on participants, I offer the 8-week MBCT-L to community groups, and the Taking it Further 12-session course to those wanting to deepen and sustain their practice. Where appropriate, I also teach Finding Peace in a Frantic World, and Living in the Present for Adults. The essence of these courses is carried through to retreat days and bespoke offerings in the service of supporting participants’ ongoing mindfulness practice
