Me in eight words:
Communicator | Catalyst | Meditator | Mentor | Honest | Playful | Facilitator | Glue
“Mindfulness meditation helped me avoid burn out in a high stress PR career, it is like a friend you can call on at any time to help you find some breathing space and refocus.
My passion is sharing these tools in a range of accessible, playful yet impactful ways, so learning to relax and use stress positively becomes essential to enable you to thrive in the face of a range of life’s challenges.”
Career so far
I balance work as a communications consultant with the therapeutic teaching of meditation. This is a wonderful way for me to keep in tune with the ‘normal’ pressures of everyday life and apply my own meditation practices to help with greater harmony. I am not a zen master of inner-peace, but prefer to think of myself as a constant student of life’s meditation magic that aims to share my learnings to help you find ways to overcome obstacles in your path with a positive calm state of mind
As a Communications and Events consultant, team building and Mindfulness Meditation Trainer with over 15 years’ experience including formal certifications in marketing, PR, and mindfulness meditation, I combine mindfulness meditation tools with practical applications to trigger creativity, boost focus and as an aid to reduce stress.
Originally trained as a Civil Engineer (yes bridges not computers), I retrained in PR and marketing communications early in my career – initially focusing on technical PR but soon branching into my passion for health, wellbeing, education and the environment. I became a freelance consultant ten years ago to develop my interest in using meditation and communication for positive change.
I’m open, honest and playful; balancing this with a professional and calm approach. As such many clients find one-to-one meditation mentoring a powerful personal way to build a positive habit into your life and work.
I’m a dreamer who ‘does’ – flourishing in the face of a deadline to make ‘it’ happen where the ‘it’ is what you need for your success. I love being the glue and catalyst in many situations to help trigger positive change for individuals, businesses and to make a genuine difference in the world.
I am passionate about people, food – but especially picnics – and the fragile and beautiful world around us. I love exploring the world on our doorstep as much as breath-taking destinations around the globe. Equally happy on my meditation mat in the garden, with a good book or swimming in the sea as delivering training and meditation. I am an optimist with a can-do attitude.
“The clarity of this moment makes me truly alive and open to all possibilities in this world and the next.”
