Description of courses:
I am based in London, UK and I have been teaching mindfulness nationally and internationally in various forms such as public speeches, small and large group facilitation, one-to-one counseling and on line courses. I specialise in mindfulness practices at work and have published articles on mindful use of information technology. My approach to mindfulness teaching is simple and accessible, emphasising mindfulness in daily life and the cultivation of well-being in society.
