About Me

I have practiced mindfulness meditation since the mid 1980's and taught meditation since 1999, initially in a Buddhist context. I also have more than 3 decades of teaching experience, both with adults and teenagers. In 2016 I co-founded the teaching partnership (with my colleague Dr Carolyn Drake). In 2017 I trained with the Sussex Mindfulness Centre to teach Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy & Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction. I have been a self-employed mindfulness teacher since the end of 2016 and since then have taught in a wide range of organisations and settings. I currently run taster sessions for the Sussex Mindfulness Centre and a drop-in class in Brighton hosted by the NHS as part of their 'social prescribing' initiative. I am trained to teach Mindfulness-based Compassionate Living courses, and supervise other mindfulness teachers. In 2021 I co-founded (with Carolyn Drake) the 'Mindfulness-based Wise Awareness' and 'Mindfulness to support Long Covid Recovery' courses. Both of these courses are currently the subject of a research study by Chichester University. All my teaching is informed by a committed personal practice of mindfulness, compassion and meditation.
