My Teacher Intro
I’ve been teaching in many settings over the last decade and more. I’ve training counsellors and professionals who work with children, as well as supporting parents and children directly and I love it. However, my own children are clinically vulnerable so that has given me the incentive to go online. I’ve spent years working with children and families in lots of settings, and then had my own and realised I still had a lot to learn! Both at home and in my work I’ve put to practice all I have learnt, and love bringing those bits that have helped me and many others, so you can be sure that what I teach has most assuredly been tried and tested. I teach mindfulness and gentle parenting as well as many things around mental health. I believe we learn best when we are relaxed and enjoying ourselves so my style of teaching is pretty relaxed and informal and I usually bring lots of examples from my work and life to illustrate what I’m teaching. I’m looking forward to meeting you and hearing how my courses may help.
