Live your life more fully by listening to your body
Welcome – if you have landed on this site, it may be you are searching for something in your life.
Maybe you have done an eight-week mindfulness course, or already have a regular meditation practice. Maybe you have experienced feelings of connection or openness in your practice which just seem to disappear when you get to work or have an argument with your partner.
It may be that you are feeling stressed or challenged in your life, relationship or work. That you always feel that you are trying to get to somewhere and are never happy with just being here, where you are.
What I offer is a way to live fully in the face of these challenges through opening up to what your body is telling you. You may not like what your body is saying, but nothing will change until you listen to it. To listen to your body requires that you accept yourself exactly as you are. Whether or not you already practice meditation or mindfulness, I work with you to be present in your body, in your life. To lovingly accept yourself in all your glorious and gory shades and qualities.
I love to work in this way, because being present is a central commitment in my life. It is inspiring to be with clients and together open the resources that already exist, here and now. It is endlessly nourishing to drop into the truth of presence.
However, that is not to say that it has come naturally or easily to me. Like many people I grew up with little connection to my body or emotions. I always thought there has to be something else beyond a conventional life of home and work, and believed I would find the solution “out there”. With the loving and inspired input of my teachers, I have been gently turned around to understand that the answer is in being more fully in my work and my family life. I have started to listen to its wisdom. It is the experience of that journey that I am offering.

I work with organisations, groups and individuals in Devon, South West and nationwide.
An accredited* coach, trainer and professional group facilitator, I bring thirty years experience and a passion for self and team development.
My approach is strongly informed by my personal mindfulness and self enquiry practice.
Not to be confused with therapy or counselling, mindfulness based coaching focuses on the present moment, rather than the past. Coaching is non-directive and follows the client’s agenda. By working together, we can open up the resources already present to build a clear & sustainable vision for the future.
