I am passionate about helping women of all ages unearth their innate mindful presence.

My spiritual practice began early. Growing up in an extremely violent home in Northern Ireland during the war, I found solas in connection to animals, the natural world and the Divine Feminine. I began a yoga practice and working with animal cards in my late teens, both of which remain part of my daily spiritual practice today.

I trained intensively in the Buddhist tradition for 5 years, experiencing two years practising vipassana meditation for five hours every day, and since then over 20,000 hours on silent retreat.

I trained in Non-Violent Communication at Findhorn in 2010, where I was called to teach mindfulness meditation. After completing the Mindfulness in Schools training I developed my own independent teaching style centred in self-compassion.

Since then I have taught thousands of adults and children to meditate - in schools, adult education, healthcare, families, businesses and individuals from all walks of life. I held weekly classes and silent residential retreats for many years, then in 2018 I decided to follow my passion and focus on coaching women 1-1.

As I began teaching meditation my relationship with the Divine Feminine and indigenous healing practices deepened, which led me to study the beauty of our biological healing processes through Herbalism, Neuroscience, Jungian Archetypes, Energy Medicine and EFT Tapping.

My background is in Fine Art and I continue to draw and write most days. In 2017 I finished my first three books.

I am nourished by living in tune with the natural world and my animal companions. I connect daily with the HayHouse Community and weekly with a 12-step programme.

I came to meditation in my late 20s, after years of chronic pain, panic attacks, insomnia and depression.

When I went on that first silent retreat my life changed completely. I had finally found a way to heal the traumas of the past and express my true voice.

To me, these meditation techniques that heal body, mind and heart are a birth right. This is why I teach. I know from personal experience that we really can heal from anything, no matter how terrible.

It is because of a daily meditation and self-care practice that my life just keeps getting better and better.
