Mindfulness & Meditation Coach
Working for 10 years as a Software Engineer, with a big salary and big house, I couldn’t shake the feeling of ‘there must be more than this’. Following the birth of my first child I was diagnosed with depression and embarked on a healing journey which ultimately was the catalyst for me to leave my corporate career and follow a different path inspired by my discoveries and a desire to help others. This was 16 years ago and I have been working in health & wellness ever since.
I have trained in a number of healing modalities, most relevant today are Mindfulness Teacher, Mind Calm Coach, Children’s Meditation Teacher, EFT ‘Emotional Freedom Technique’ Practitioner, Hypnotherapist, Mind Detox Practitioner, Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga Teacher, Reiki Master Teacher in Usui Reiki & Karuna Reiki. I am fully insured, a Master Teacher Member of the UK Reiki Federation and hold a Disclosure Scotland PVG check.
I am keen to empower others with the tools & techniques I have learnt that reduce stress and anxiety and bring more peace, happiness and contentment. For many years now I have been helping people relax, destress and create positive change in their lives with classes, workshops, one to one sessions and retreats. My work has helped many people cope with stress, anxiety, overcome fears and let go of limitations. I am a great believer in the power of community and host a monthly Women’s Circle and recently facilitated an Action for Happiness Course helping others to explore happiness and community.
Central to my way of life and ability to hold a peaceful space for others is my personal meditation practice. Meditation is a daily practice for me and I have spent at least a month each year on top of a mountain in Spain at a meditation retreat over the last few years in order to help stabilise my experience of peace and be the best meditation teacher I can be. I have found that a meditation practice is one of the best ways to connect with yourself and achieve a more peaceful and joyful life.
A natural nurturer, I have created a beautiful and peaceful studio, therapy space and shop in the heart of Peebles where I teach and offer workshops and one to one sessions. I also run retreats in Scotland and offer sessions online.
