About Me

I have an open-minded approach and love working with people to discover what works for them. I am fascinated by how we learn as individuals and what makes the difference for meaningful learning. Curiosity and compassion seem to be key ingredients. So is space. Space to learn, to play, to rest, to grow. My approach is that of a coach and a guide. I know the territory well. And I know that in the end, if you really want to learn, you have to find your own way and be your own guide. I know how to help you do that. It's not a problem if you find this sort of thing difficult. I love working with people who have tried things like mindfulness and meditation and for one reason or another found that it didn't work for them. We can work it out together. In terms of professional training, I trained to teach mindfulness at the Centre for Mindfulness, Research and Practice, Bangor University, and have a Masters in Teaching Mindfulness. I also supervise mindfulness teachers through the Mindfulness Network. With a background in osteopathy and a Masters degree in Pain Science, I have experience in helping people with persistent pain.
