MY BACKGROUND AND TRAINING
Yoga for the Soul
My work background covers over 11 years of working in Mental Health, and 3 years delivering 6-week ‘Headspace’ courses and ‘Peaceful Minds’ support groups for ‘Oblong’ in Leeds. As well as specific mental health training, I have also undertaken counselling training in my spare time, many day courses in Ecotherapy, and also Holistic Therapies. My fascination with human beings, the mind and wellness has covered many years.
My yoga-related training covers years of study and training in yoga, teacher training, mindfulness, meditation, pranayama, chanting, and Sound Therapy. Studying is an ongoing pleasure for me, and I have attended many courses with the Sheffield School of Yoga, Yoga Campus, The Shala, as well as the Mandala Yoga Ashram, and the Tariki Trust. I discovered the Tariki Trust during lock-down and have thoroughly enjoyed their Ecotherapy courses steeped in a love of this Earth, nature and our place within it; a huge passion for me. In 2022 I discovered Rick & Sheila Blackwell, of Spirit of the Sacred Drum, and am enjoying my Shamanic studies with them. In 2023 I started my Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and am enjoying my studies very much.
