My journey to becoming a Mindfulness coach began back in 2004 when I was working as an actress, business owner of a theatre company and managing a team, I felt constantly under pressure to achieve and I set myself very high standards. However, I started to burn out, my emotions became unpredictable, I had constant insomnia and I battled with my self-esteem. In 2008 I decided to make some changes. I enrolled on a personal development course that was challenging but life changing and started to implement kindness and gratitude into my everyday life. I found my health and mental well-being started to become more stable by practising the art of self-awareness and meditation.
Having my children in 2010 and 2014 was hugely demanding so I worked hard to maintain my new principles. I became more grounded and better equipped to deal with whatever life threw at me. I continued my practise and started to strive. I felt happier than ever before and I gained a greater understanding of who I was and how I was connected to myself and others.
In January 2017, I decided to take the next step and following some formal training and obtaining my SMART Diploma & Reiki Level 2 I set up Leap Mindfulness and began working as a Mindfulness coach. The aim was to give people simple tools which they could use to enhance their body and mind connection and allow them to live a more fulfilled life with reduced stress and increased happiness.
Since then I have worked at over 120 secondary schools with Learning Performance running workshops based around meta-cognition. I run retreats with Yoga teacher Carolyn Thompson and with Denise Richardson of Holistic Happiness and I lead meditation groups and one-2-one workshops as a meditation and mindfulness coach. With the use of several tools I can offer a bespoke service to each client, allowing them to choose the tools that feel right for them. Having a background in performing arts also allows me to coach on public speaking, confidence and stage fright.
I currently draw my inspirations from Shamanic practices, energy work and journeying meditations. Meditation, Mindfulness, Growth Mindset, Reiki, Intuitive Work, the Law of Attraction, Card Guidance and Journeying Meditation are my key areas of expertise. My background in performing arts also means I am passionate about coaching on public speaking, confidence and combating stage fright.
