From there to here - my story
Following a 20-year career in education, Fiona re-trained to gain a Post Graduate Certificate in Mindfulness, Meditation and Relaxation. She has spent the past 10 years teaching groups and individuals in a variety of settings.
During this time, she has developed her own curriculum and created bespoke workshops for schools, business, and NHS staff. She has delivered talks for charity and radio and continues to develop ‘consistent practice’ to help you integrate mindfulness into everyday living and give you the most helpful and effective experience possible.
She is fully committed to her own personal mindfulness practice and is mentored by teachers working alongside world renowned leaders in this field – Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield.
In addition to her professional qualifications, she is fully insured and a registered member of the CThA. Fiona’s teaching has always reflected the most current research and she demonstrates an appealing fusion of science and soul. To everyone who knows her, she never takes herself too seriously, cares deeply for others and continues to be a source of light, joy, and inspiration.

Certified Meditation, Mindful Movement & Dharma Teacher
I want to help you develop meaningful, long-lasting change in the way you experience and respond to the challenges you face.
Firstly, regular weekly live online group sessions are planned and delivered to provide a themed mindfulness focus for your week.
Secondly, I give you easy to use mindfulness tools/techniques every week linked to the theme so that you're actively applying mindfulness in your everyday life.
Thirdly, during the week I provide ongoing additional support helping you cultivate new positive habits - the key to meaningful change and living a more mindful life.
Here you’ll find a gentle drip-feed approach which regularly revisits mindfulness themes and techniques encouraging you to develop a much needed friendship with yourself. This will empower you to manage your emotional challenges with greater understanding and open you up to a sense of ease and joy right where you are.
The program's ongoing curriculum cycle allows you to dip in/dip out for periods of time or create your own life-practice. A minimum of 12 weeks is recommended for shorter stays.
This supportive program is based on research from neuroscience, education, psychology, biology and philosophy.
Changes that seem small and unimportant at first will compound into remarkable results if you’re willing to stick with them’. James Clear, Atomic Habits.
This program creates the 'helpful conditions' that will enable you to start 'behaving' into a new way of thinking. This creates habit and develops growth and is in contrast to self-help books and short courses which are limited by trying to get us to 'think' into a new way of behaving. Only by behaving differently will we start changing the way we think, and only then will we discover the lasting change we seek.

‘I have hugely reduced anxiety as a result of these sessions. I have tools to cope with challenges and rationalise negative feelings. It has improved my confidence a lot. Fiona as a teacher is honest, generous with advice and support and I can’t think of a better way to help people than through the skills of mindfulness’
