I have a strong, heart-felt commitment to inspiring others to find health and happiness through the combination of ancient and holistic practices which have brought many positive benefits to my own life.

My own journey began at just fifteen years old when I was introduced to Transcendental Meditation to help me cope with anxiety at school.

It wasn’t easy to begin with but I persevered through my daily sessions of silent mantra recitation, building gradually from a few minutes up to twenty minutes twice daily.

My feelings of anxiety began to subside. I felt lighter and calmer. I experienced moments of clarity and peace and luckily for my impending GCSE’s, I was also able to retain more information with my improved memory (higher grades than predicted were acheived). I felt more confident and able to cope with the turbulent waves of emotion that come with being a teenager.

This profound experience of change fuelled my curiosity to learn more about meditation and alternative health/ complimentary therapies.

Over the years, my meditation practice changed. Sometimes it was more consistent and regular than others. I also went on to learn and practice other styles of meditation from a variety of different traditions, so no longer continued to practice TM. I often found that life guided me to the right meditation technique and teacher at the time when it was needed the most.

 I am now forty years old and I am grateful each and every day for the gift of meditation. It has been the friend that had my back through some of life’s challenging situations; school, divorce, raising a child and running a business. If I ever began to feel stressed or an inability to cope then I knew I had to meditate MORE!!

Over the last twenty years whilst working in the wellness industry, predominantly as a Holistic Therapist/ Trainer and Business owner, I practiced, studied and taught many complimentary therapies including reiki and massage before following my heart to become a full time yoga and meditation teacher.

I completed a 200 hour Hatha Yoga and 100 hour Meditation Facilitator training with the Heart of Living Yoga in addition to completing a Meditation Teacher Training with Sally Kempton at TriYoga, London.

Following this path has shown me how to live in an authentic and grounded way with compassion and meaning, bringing more joy and sweetness into my life.

All of these practices and teachings have supported and seen me through many challenging times. Bringing clarity, focus, courage and acceptance when I needed it the most.

I now share the fruits of my experience with others through mentoring, meditation and contemplation classes and courses, retreat days, corporate sessions and more.

Many events are now also offered online, making them more accessible to everyone, anywhere. Visit our events page to see what we have coming up…

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to find peace and calm in a chaotic world.
