I am a fully insured, qualified and accredited Personal Development Coach, Mindfulness Teacher and Emotional Intelligence Trainer. I set Breathing Space up as a place in which to pause. To explore how you or your company can be more mindful and compassionate. To help you achieve greater focus, confidence and self-awareness. Living in a mindful way is less distracted and experiences can become lighter, richer and more vivid. Problem solving and communication improves as a more mindful way of being develops. Mindfulness helps you to sit more comfortably with the stress and anxiety of modern living. My core life values are kindness, compassion and mindfulness. I weave this into my approach to my individual coaching and corporate training.


It is important to me that I provide a mindful service to my clients. Part of that is ensuring that I have the knowledge and understanding needed to do just that. I explore every opportunity to continue to mindfully learn and grow so that I can bring that knowledge into my practice. I have gained the following accreditation and qualifications:

  • Introduction to Mindfulness Teaching Skill Training
  • Mindfulness Associations foundation and Practitioners Certificate
  • Level 5 Diploma in Coaching with NLP
  • Diploma in Mindfulness
  • Certificate in Counselling Adolescents using the Arts
  • Member of the Association for Coaching
  • Member of the Mindfulness Association
  • Accredited Member of the National Council of Psychotherapists
  • Law Degree


I have had a varied and eclectic people centered career each role a learning experience that now sits behind my coaching and training business. When you choose Breathing Space for your coaching and training needs, I would like you to feel that you are in safe, caring and experienced hands.
