About me

I trained as an MBSR teacher with the Centre for Mindfulness at Bangor University.  I have also completed the “Teaching Mindfulness in Non-Clinical Settings” course at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre.

I have been practicing yoga and meditation for over 20 years and I have attended many courses, both in the US and Europe on mindfulness, mindful self-compassion and meditation.

After a successful career in Television, I trained as a yoga teacher and set up Calm For Kids in 1998.  Calm For Kids offers training courses for yoga teachers and school teachers who want to bring the benefits of yoga to children and there are now over 2000 graduates of the Calm For Kids Training course. I’ve written and produced a series of relaxation CDs for children and teenagers which have sold over 250,000 copies worldwide and are now available as downloads and apps.  I run a module on Teaching Yoga and Mindfulness  Children and Teens for the BWY.

For 3 years I mentored and worked for the British Wheel of Yoga accredited, London Yoga Teacher Training Group (LYTTG) which trains adult yoga teachers in Scaravelli inspired yoga.   I now work for them as a guest tutor offering their Teaching Yoga to Children Course.

Personally I have found mindfulness to be an invaluable resource in dealing with life’s major and minor challenges and I am profoundly grateful to have found it.

I offer 8-week MBSR courses in West and Central London as well as courses in companies and schools.  I follow the good practice guidelines set out by the Mindfulness UK network.
