It was while at medical school in the early 1980s that I became fascinated by the interaction of psychological states and physical health and through this interest began my own mindfulness practice. After graduating from medical school I began teaching mindfulness practice in educational, community and corporate settings and this has continued through my employment at the University of Salford initially as a physiology lecturer. Now as a senior lecturer in the College of Health and Social Care almost all of my lecturing is related to mindfulness practice and is delivered to undergraduates, postgraduates and professionals. I have continued to train in different mindfulness related approaches: I am an accredited Breathworks Trainer and have also undertaken the mindfulness Teacher Development Retreats 1 & 2 at Bangor University, Mindfulness Self-Compassion teacher training and the Mindfulness in Schools Project teacher-training. I am also a qualified counsellor, CBT therapist and hypnotherapist.

I have been a Homoeopath in private practice for 23 years and have had a personal mindfulness practice for even longer. As a lecturer in Homoeopathy at the University of Salford I became involved in delivering the Integrated Mindfulness modules and was delighted to bring these two important strands in my life together. I decided to study for the MSc in Teaching Mindfulness at Bangor University and also gained their Certificate of Competence in Teaching Mindfulness Based Courses.
My particular interest is in developing the integration of mindfulness into therapeutic practice. I have a long interest in and experience of supervision and supervisory training and am experienced in working with both groups and individual clients. My approach is practical and responsive and I really enjoy adapting myself and what I do to meet the particular requirements of individuals and groups.
