I wanted to tell you a little about Breathing Space and how it came into being. I began my own exploration into mindfulness about six years ago. Seeking solace from the demands of a stressful career. My own journey has lead me to a peace with my own life that I have not before known. My own practice and personal experience now sits behind my passion for sharing the benefits with others. I set up Breathing Space in response to my passion for empowering others to heal their hearts, minds and conversations. The dandelion represents to me time, resilient, persistent and its ability to fly and let go on the breath of the wind. As we develop our mindfulness practice we seek to let go of the entanglement with thought and let it go on the sigh of the breath. I wanted Breathing Space to be a space in which you have a chance to pause. To explore how you or your company can develop a mindful and compassionate way of being. To help you achieve greater focus, confidence, peace and 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 creativity, kindness, compassion and mindfulness. I have an integrative multi-faceted approach that is allowing, accommodating and genuine and I weave this into my individual coaching and corporate training. Together we can have heart-centered conversations that will empower you to compassionately connect to mind, body and soul. In the corporate arena I am looking to increase the amount of connected mindful conversations that are had within teams and with clients. So I hope you feel that you know a little more about me and Breathing Space now but if you would like to know more do not hesitate to contact us.


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 am fully insured and I explore every opportunity to continue to mindfully learn and grow. I can then bring that knowledge into my practice. At the present time I am just about to complete my ACT therapy training. This is a Mindfulness based therapeutic intervention which is having life changing effects on how people manage anxiety, phobias, anger and stress. I will be offering this service from December this year. I am also in the throes of completing the requirements for the national register of mindfulness teachers and will be in a position as from January next year to offer the 8-week Mindfulness based Living Course. In the meantime I have gained the following accreditation and qualifications:

  • Introduction to Mindfulness Teaching Skill Training
