Practicing Mindfulness gave me the space to come up for air, in a time in my life that felt like I was drowning. Years on I am now an experienced and passionate Mindfulness and Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher, having facilitated programs within the Education System, Cancer Support, Women's Health and the general community.
I have a sound knowledge of health and education stemming from years of experience working with diverse populations in the roles of Kinesiologist, Health Care Worker, Rehabilitation Counsellor, Health Educator and Paramedic.
More recently, the extensive work I have done within the area of Mindful Self-Compassion has allowed my life and passion to truly blossom. I am grateful each day for the wonderful blessing of teaching MSC and MSC teaching me.

Your task is not to seek for Love,
but merely to seek and find all the
barriers within yourself that you
have built against it
