About Me

On my graduation from the University of Exeter Mindfulness Teacher Training programme in 2020, I started teaching the MBCT-Ca 8-week course. Running the BAMBA Special Interest Group for this course has deepened my understanding of how mindfulness can support those living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis. I anticipate completing my supervision training for MBCT-Ca in 2024. Having worked in schools for 25 years, I now train other schoolteachers, both nationally and internationally, for the Mindfulness in Schools Project. It is a privilege to share these life skills with those so early in life. When teaching in-person in Frome, Somerset, where I live, I lead MBCT-Life courses. I also use this programme when teaching online for local (Wellington Counselling) and national (National Centre of Integrative Medicine) organisations dedicated to the health and wellbeing of others.
