About Me

I have 12 years experience as an active Interfaith Minister, regularly officiating at ceremonies and services. Before that I was an ordained Buddhist practitioner and teacher within the Western Buddhist Order, leading meditation, Buddhism courses and residential retreats. As a freelance trainer I have designed and delivered courses in Intercultural awareness, stress management, communication skills, public speaking and customer relations; for charities, the NHS and multinational companies including HSBC.

I have a diploma in Psychotherapy from Spectrum Training completed in 1992. I have been attending courses and practice groups led by the Centre for Compassionate Communication since 2007.

I graduated from the University of Kent with an Honours degree in English and Film Studies in 1983. 17 years ago I was ordained with the Western Buddhist Order and as an Interfaith Minister and Spiritual Counsellor in 2004.

My personal and professional development includes ongoing supervision and various activities that support mind, body and spirit. I have a daily meditation practice and spend part of each year on residential retreats and courses. I lived for over two years in India following intensive spiritual programmes and visiting holy sites. I regularly attend the Quaker services in Westminster and occasionally lead services at the Unitarian Church in Notting Hill Gate.

I am a trained teacher of iRest yoga nidra, a deep healing and relaxing experience that helps people to release stress, build resilience, resolved personal issues and actively promotes a deep level of well being. I am also a trained Mindfulness teacher.
