my story 

from TV Producer to Wellbeing Warrior

I'm passionate about teaching others how using simple but effective mindfulness and calming techniques successfully boosts and promotes positive wellbeing and good mental health. 


Modern life can be exhausting and overwhelming.

As a successful producer working for the likes of the BBC, Channel 4, Sky and ITV, I thrived on the pressure, stress and expectation the industry demanded.

I juggled the responsibilities of a huge team, multi-million pound budgets and the needs of my growing family.

After two decades at that relentless pace I realised something had to give.

I retrained over 5 years ago in Mindfulness and Calming Practises when I needed to make big changes in my own life.

Specialising in children and young people, I learnt to teach the Award-winning Relax Kids programme - one of the leading experts in child relaxation training and a forerunner in mindfulness in early years.

I furthered my knowledge with training from the Mindfulness in Schools Project, and have since worked with charities, community groups, schools and colleges to provide classes for all ages, offering parenting workshops, one to one targeted work, and family support. 

I'm able to use my mindfulness skills, television background and considerable drama training to develop bespoke sessions specifically devised to suit the individuals I'm working with.

There is such a need for support in mental wellbeing that my work has grown and grown.

Now my sessions provide others with the coping mechanisms to deal with the frenzy of their own lives -

be that in the classroom, in the home or in the work place.
