Hello Everyone. Welcome to my biography. I am a Psychologist, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and Mindfulness teacher with a love of mindfulness and an active life. Happy to speak with journalists around the topic of Psychology, wellbeing, mindfulness or combining mindfulness with sport.
I completed my training in mindfulness with the Oxford Mindfulness Centre after graduating with a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology from the University of Wales. I am also a freelance writer and speaker specialising in wellbeing, sports and psychology. I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
While studying for my doctorate I began to practice mindfulness to aid wellbeing. Initially it was something I did just for me. As I practiced I was able to recognise the impact it could have on difficult thoughts and feelings as well as allowing me to highlight and enjoy the positive. Now I teach mindfulness within the NHS for people experiencing low mood or living with health conditions. I also teach privately through my organisation Active Mindfulness which aims to help individuals improve wellbeing and focuses on people who wish to add mindfulness to their sports or active life.
