Hello and welcome!
I am the Founder of Mindfulness for learning - the wellbeing centre for educators and families.
Following more than a decade of inner London classroom teaching, leading on Mental Health and Wellbeing and training in mindfulness I decided to quit teaching (for a bit anyway); I was becoming fed up of being part of the problem!
Mental Health and Wellbeing have not been high on the education agenda for long enough and although the words 'mental health and wellbeing' are on the tongues of parents, educators and children we are still having to follow a curriculum and systems that do not give educators and families enough time or space to truly embed skills for real life.
I launched Mindfulness for learning during an 18 month break from the classroom to create a space to speak up, support communities and have a proactive response to the problematic systems and policies in place.
I now run Mindfulness for learning alongside being back in the classroom full time and leading on Mental Health and Wellbeing, putting into practice all that I preach.
Whilst the current curriculum and systems continue to exist I will maintain my strong fight for change and use Mindfulness for learning as a platform to support others in this area - now and in the future.
I am available to write education and parenting articles for publication and also to speak at events or on podcasts.
We have the opportunity to be mindful in everything we do.
Mental Health and Wellbeing are the new buzz words, but what can we do at school and at home to ensure it transcends from spoken word to action?
Whether you are a parent, carer, work in a school or a younger person making your way in the world the importance of being mindful when growing or helping to grow somebody is key.
Mindfulness for learning aims to bring all things mental health and wellbeing to one place in a supported and connected environment.
You will find everything from responses to the latest news and interviews with experts to workshops and events for you to get involved in.
There is something for everyone here and all are welcome.
