Registered Health Coach
Listed Mindfulness Teacher
My vision is maximise your physical and mental wellbeing so you can feel strong, confident, joyful, healthy and happy. To help you learn to love yourself and create time for self-care and physical activity. My vision is to create a community for mind & body wellness, with you at the heart of it.
It is imperative that mindfulness teachers are appropriately trained to do the work they are doing. They are working with an organ of extraordinary complexity and power – the human mind. Willem Kuyken.
I am a listed mindfulness teacher with BAMBA. I am also fully registered as a member of the Association for Coaching & The British Psychological Society as a Health & Wellness Coach. I specialise in health behaviour change and have worked within the field of health, wellbeing and fitness for nearly twenty years.
I work within the community, with sports teams, schools and businesses. Presenting at conferences and delivering workshops / courses on mindfulness and well-being. During the Covid-19 pandemic it was an honour to work with some of the Olympic and Paralympic teams to assist them in navigating their way through this challenging time.
For twelve years I worked as a Master tutor in diabetes and obesity management for a leading health and fitness training provider. Also for the University of Nottingham on a three year International Study for the Prevention of Type 2 Diabetes through Lifestyle Intervention (PREVIEW).
My greatest love, for over twenty years, is to passionately teach group exercise classes, including Fitness Yoga. Training mind and body fitness for you personally and as a community together.
Becoming a Mindfulness Teacher
After discovering a deep passion for mindfulness many years ago, in 2017 I enrolled on an MBCT Mindfulness Teacher Training pathway with The Nottingham Centre for Mindfulness. Whilst equipping me with skills to teach the 8-week MBCT course in line with BAMBA “Good Practice Guidelines”, this was the deepest, most enlightening, challenging and life changing journey I have ever embarked upon. This is a lifelong path and I am proud to be listed with BAMBA. I continue to deepen my practice & teaching skills through Oxford Mindfulness Centre (OMC) and annual training retreats.
