An only child with many emigrations, constant newcomer and outsider, art was my saving grace, hours spent drawing and painting to my heart’s content. This organically lead onto two art college graduations and a career in Graphic Design. With Mindfulness curing my anger and shyness issues, granting self-love and the confidence to shine. Now my own son’s hormonal anger and ‘Mum, sleeps a waste of time’ challenges dealt with within a few mindfulness minutes.
Having gained a government-approved Diploma to teach Mindful Meditation (AptEd, QCF, Ascentis) with the British School of Meditation (DipBSoM) I am passionate to pass on these valuable life skills for the benefit of a younger generation.
I feel privileged to have tutored London and Bournemouth school children, additionally facilitating Special Needs children gain invaluable coping strategies.Recently returned to Dorset, I now joyfully offer Mindful Art classes in Dorset and Hampshire.
