I'm a coach, mindfulness teacher, blogger and speaker.
Having spent many years as a secondary teacher, I know the importance of living life in the present. It was physically and emotionally draining, each and every day. I would arrive at the end of term, and instantly my immune system would fall in a heap. Weekends were whiled away trying to take my mind off all I had to do, often entering the depths of despair when deadlines were tight. It was in one of these times that a close friend suggest I try meditation. I was sceptical, but at that point I was willing to give it a go! Anything to break the cycle.
Having discovered the impact of meditation on my life, I delved deeper into different aspects of mindful living. The further I researched, the more I realised how much I still relied on my autopilot to get me through each day. And it just wasn't cutting it. I needed to do more than just meditation to break out of the pattern. Gradually I added more and more tools to my mindfulness toolkit and learnt to recognise negative thought patterns and how to stop them in their tracks.
Seeing how much I was able to help myself with this knowledge, I became extremely passionate about helping others to understand the benefits of mindfulness and to get the best out of themselves. I trained as a mindfulness practitioner and began to develop programs to help others experience exactly what I did! And do my programs work? Find out what my clients say!
In addition to my qualifications as a mindfulness practitioner and life coach, I am a qualified teacher and vocational trainer. Working with people is what gets me up in the morning - and I'd love to work with you too!
