I have been meditating (patchily at first!) since I was 16 when I discovered a chant in a magazine which helped calm my exam nerves. Since then I have meditated with varying degrees of success. At first, using it only when stressed, meditation did not have a great impact. Then in 2001 I studied Yoga, Movement and Meditation in Rishikesh, India and made meditation part of a weekly practice alongside yoga. In 2006 I started learning about secular mindfulness meditation and started daily meditation practice. This led me to complete an MBSR course (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction), taught by Michael Chaskalson, to consolidate my meditation practice. I attend at least one silent retreat each year to help deepen and support my practice and teaching.

In 2012 I decided to combine my interest in mindfulness meditation and my experience as a teacher by training to teach mindfulness. I undertook a reflective practice journal to deepen my practice and to get to know each meditation taught on Mindfulness-Based courses thoroughly. As well as the mindfulness teacher training, I also hold a Teaching Qigong for Health Certificate which I incorporate into my Mindfulness-Based courses.
