A teaching group with their work

In my experience of working within group settings such as adult education classes and workshops for statutory, private and charitable agencies, I provide handouts and teach theory and practice but also promote the sharing of experiences and have found this to be a great catalyst for self-development, boosting confidence and self-worth and enhancing social and self-care skills.

I do not believe that I have ‘all the answers’ within classes or workshops and always encourage participants to negotiate what they want and recognise and share their own skills and wisdom. I also attempt to provide tools for individuals to learn and find a way forward most suitable to them as unique people.

I always attempt to be non-oppressive in my practice, irrespective of gender, race, culture, sexual orientation, physical and psychological make-up, age etc.

My workshops are tailored to individual requirements and aim to be professional, challenging and engaging, whilst incorporating humour and fun as much as possible. I sometimes utilise creative techniques, from awareness-enhancing ‘experiments’ to art, drama, music, movement and writing.

Mindfulness Training for Teams and Businesses

I provide Mindfulness training for individuals, groups and staff teams from lunch hour practice sessions to half or full-day trainings and eight-week programmes
(see Mindfulness Training Page).

Life is tough and if you have the ability to laugh at it you have the ability to enjoy it

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high.
There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.

People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built.
