I set up Mindful Surrey in 2018 to support individuals and businesses through mindfulness meditation training. I run Mindful Surrey with the support of three trustees, Pauline Saxby, Diana Davies and Dr Eleanore Hargreaves.

Mindfulness Charity

Mindful Surrey is a registered charity which aims to provide mindfulness training to all, to help people be happier and find greater peace of mind amidst life's difficulties. We are grateful to the National Lottery and the Community Foundation for Surrey who support our work, enabling us to offer mindfulness training to schools and individuals at a subsidised rate and sometimes for free.

Mindfulness Centre

Although our mindfulness centre is Dorking and Reigate, we deliver mindfulness training in Surrey as well as online, for people throughout the UK and abroad.

Mindfulness for Young People

Our Healthy Minds course includes mindfulness exercises for anxiety and meditations for sleep. I teach mindfulness in education to students and teachers, and work in a range of schools. Additionally I offer one-to-one coaching to 10-18 year olds. Besides mindfulness, I'm an experienced drama teacher. I've developed a project in which children use drama and mindfulness activities together, finding ways to manage difficult thoughts and emotions.

 

My background

I've led a varied career based around helping people of all ages, which began with teaching self-development courses in London. I enjoyed supporting people in achieving their goals and expressing themselves. I took up Yoga and studied Dramatherapy, at the same time as working as a professional theatre director, before going on to teach in schools and have children. Visit my mindfulness meditation blog to find out how I came across 'modern' mindfulness.

I've found mindful meditation techniques profoundly useful over the years. It's helped me experience events such as bereavement with calm and confidence, as well as find greater joy in life. I'm committed to sharing what I've learned so that I can empower and inspire others.
