In training as an existential psychotherapist

I have been practising mindfulness since 2009. In 2012 I became a secondary school teacher through the Teach First programme. In 2013 I started to include a mindfulness practice in each lesson I taught. I trained with the Mindfulness in Schools Project and Wake Up Schools in 2014, and then spent a further five years at the same school, sharing mindfulness with students and staff in a wide variety of formats, in and out of the classroom. From 2015 to 2019 I oversaw the same cohort of students, from Year 8 until their graduation. 
 

Since 2019 I have been working freelance as a teacher of mindfulness. I have trained with the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice to teach Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction courses. I also teach one-to-one; in a variety of schools, primary and secondary; and in workplaces, across a wide range of sectors. In addition to my freelance teaching I also teach and organise for HaMakom, a charity offering wellbeing and meditation teachings within Jewish frameworks, including in residential, daylong and online retreats. 

 

I am committed to following the good practice guidelines of the British Association of Mindfulness-based Approaches.
