About me...

(MSt, BSc (Hons), DipHE)

Mindfulness Practitioner

Yoga Teacher

RMN + SCPHN


Hello and welcome to my website!


I have been personally practising a variety of yoga styles such as Ashtanga Vinyasa, Hatha and Iyengar along with meditation for 25+ years, eventually deciding to train as a Level 3 yoga teacher in 2020.


Approximately 10 years ago, I was really inspired to explore mindfulness meditation and its emotional health benefits further after attending a VIP seminar with Visiting Professor Ruby Wax, OBE, at the University of Surrey. 


Ruby's honesty about her own mental health struggles with the chronic condition of Bi-Polar Disorder and how practising mindfulness meditation helped manage this was incredible to listen to. Ruby also shared how this had led her to applying to study for the Masters in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) practitioner training course at the University of Oxford.

I was so taken aback in awe that I was googling the details of the course and information whilst in this VIP event (discreetly!). However, as days and weeks passed thereafter, the idea of studying for a masters in mindfulness seemed too out of reach (academically and financially), especially being such an exclusive course at the time, available only at three universities nationally.


But, that seed was sown, and it grew, and grew without me even knowing, and then one day two years later, I woke up out of the blue and just started googling that Masters course again, only to find out it ran every two years and the deadline for application was in two weeks time!


So I rallied around everyone I knew that could help support me with references etc., explaining we had only two weeks to submit all paperwork and somehow we managed to do it! 

Although that was only the beginning as I still needed my application to be accepted, then be offered an interview, plus secure enough (self) funding to prove I was committed for the whole two years- impossible. 


However, I did get onto the course, and passed, even with the interruption of a world pandemic adding an extra year to complete,  I can proudly announce that I've now gained that Masters in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression (MBCT-D) from the University of Oxford!


Furthermore, I am also dual-trained in mental health and public health nursing, having worked for several different NHS Trusts in the South of England for over 20 years, most recently working as a Senior Mental Health Practitioner for the local NHS Secondary Care Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Services. 


My longer-term goal is to eventually move away from nursing, whilst setting up my own private mindfulness therapeutic practice offering the options of either the MBCT for Depression or 'Mindfulness For Life' 8-week courses online, alongside teaching yoga classes in person.


Namaste 🙏🏽
