MEDITATION teacher, TRAUMA therapist, FOUNDER OF SMILEY MINDS
Raised in the wilds of west Wales by good-hearted, nature-loving parents, I began my career as a journalist, contributing to the likes of The Times, The Guardian, Spirit & Destiny and BBC Radio before my life was transformed by meditation.
At 30 I fell in love with my inner silence. The deep peace I found within compelled me to begin assisting others to attune to their wellspring of inner guidance. Inspired by the very positive changes in my life, I trained as a Somatic Experiencing trauma therapist and gained powerful new insights into the mind-body connection. When the body is relaxed, the mind can be still.
Today, I'm honoured to teach children, adults and companies how to rest and be their best. Deloitte, John Lewis & Partners, Leon, PLENISH, Stylist and Urban Rituals are among the brands who’ve selected me to work with them.
With Cher Chevalier I am a co-author of the meditations that launched Calm, iTunes App of the Year 2017. I am also author of A Guide to Being a Better Being, and a founding member and Co-Chair of the Somatic Experiencing Association UK.
In 2017 I founded Smiley Minds relaxation resources for kids to empower a new generation of the happiest children in the world.
As part of my commitment to making the world a kinder place, I lead an ethical life, including supporting compassionate causes such as The HandsOff Campaign, and The Silver Line.
None of this would be possible without the source of all GOOD and every blessing, The Divine, to which I humbly and joyfully give ALL thanks.
I wish you well,
