Why mindfulness and psychotherapy work well together

Mindfulness teaching

I lead mindfulness meditation classes regularly for Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds and Leeds City Council.

I am a Mindfulness Teaching Supervisor for the Mindfulness Training Institute, where I also mentor teachers in training.

My Daily Life

I meditate daily, usually for 30 minutes in the morning. I enjoy cooking and love preparing nourishing meals from scratch. I am in a loving and supportive relationship with a wonderful partner. I’ve (largely) tamed my (very harsh) inner critic and am happier, more grounded and more at comfortable in my skin than I’ve ever been.

If I can do it, so can you!

The thing is … I couldn’t have transformed all the toxic shame, self-doubt and chronic anxiety without help. My professional life is now all about giving that same kind of support and guidance to others.

I want my clients to discover their personal power and beauty. I want them to trust their inner wisdom and know their worth so they can take their place in life, trust that they belong, and to live in alignment with their true self, just as I have begun doing.

If it sounds like we might be a good match, please get in touch. I’m here to help you move through what’s holding you back (emotionally, psychologically or spiritually) so that you can connect to your authentic, genuine self and live a more engaging, fulfilling life.
