ABOUT ME

Hello, Thank you for checking out my website.

I’ve been working as a psychotherapist supporting families for over 30 years. Teaching mindfulness has been part of my work for 20 of those years. It has been fascinating for me to bring together the two fields of mindfulness and psychotherapy and I continue to support and supervise therapists working mindfully.

As a mum of 4 and a Grandmother of 4 (so far!), I am all too aware of the pressure families are under these days. I am passionate about helping families bring mindfulness to every stage of the journey from pregnancy through the parenting years into grandparenting. From pre-birth, with the Mindfulness-based Childbirth and Parenting programme to parenting, see my mindfulness programme for parents, Nurturing Parents. I’m also interested to support grandparents and to explore the role of elder in our contemporary society. (Find out More)

I have been fortunate enough to have contributed to the mindfulness movement from its quiet beginnings, and seen the power in mindfulness for genuine and effective change in well-being. I have recently (2017) retired from my position as Director of CPD training at the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at Bangor University, and now work freelance teaching these programmes and training others to teach them. I continue to train and supervise mindfulness teachers for the Mindfulness network https://www.mindfulness-network.org/

I also offer training and courses to organisations, training staff and consulting on well being 


These are some of the organisations I’ve been working with.

  • Barnardo's

  • Adoption-plus

  • NHS

  • Tavistock and Portman Clinic London UK

  • Grwp Cynefin

  • Action for Children

  • Mindful Birthing and Parenting Foundation
