I am an accredited mindfulness teacher with Breathworks and very much enjoy teaching both Mindfulness for Health and Mindfulness for Stress courses. I have had a strong personal meditation practice since 2011 and attend regular retreats.

I live with chronic pain and found the Breathworks approach to be transformative in my own life. I have seen the huge benefits that it brings in dealing both with pain and stress and I am really delighted to be able to share it with others. I worked in the charity sector (largely homelessness) before focusing on training in and teaching mindfulness. I am also interested in how mindfulness can help with parenting, from pregnancy to teenagers.

Like all Breathworks teachers I adhere to the UK Network for Mindfulness Teachers Good Practice Guidelines and am committed to keeping my training up to date. I am currently doing a Masters in teaching mindfulness based approaches at the Centre for Mindfulness Practice and Research at Bangor University. I am also a qualified teacher with the Mindfulness in Schools Project.

The Centre will be CLOSED on Sunday 25 and Monday 26 August for the Bank Holiday and Notting Hill Carnival. There will be no classes and events on these days. We will re-open on Tuesday 27 August.
