I first came across mindfulness when I was pregnant with my second son in 2012. I found parenting hard and I didn't enjoy being pregnant either. Mindfulness helped me to cope, which has inspired me to teach and help others. I trained at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre and am listed as an antenatal mindfulness teacher who meets UK Good Practice Guidance for Mindfulness-Based Teachers. My supervisor is Maret Dymond, Clinical Psychologist, Mindfulness Teacher and Trainer.
To complement my mindfulness teaching, I'm currently training to treat birth trauma using a technique known as 3 Step Rewind.
Finally, I'm also a qualified Janet Balaskas Active Birth Workshop teacher and a Birthlight antenatal yoga teacher. I weave a lot of Active Birth material and Birthlight yoga into my mindfulness teaching.
My husband, Tom, and I now have three sons. We live in Summertown, Oxford.
