Helping adults and young people to create a happier, more meaningful life...
Associate Tutor at the Mindfulness Association
Many of us, particularly in the Western world, appear to have developed a sense of in some way not being good enough. We set impossibly high standards for ourselves, and if on the off-chance we happen to reach these standards at any point then we immediately raise the bar higher. Always striving to be better, to be more…
The practice of cultivating mindfulness and self-compassion shows us that we are always enough.
Join me on a journey of self-acceptance and self-discovery, learning to recognise that self-criticism and all of those unhelpful judgments that we make about ourselves and others are what prevents us from being able to fulfil more of our potential - doing more of what it is that makes life meaningful, and becoming more of who we want to be.

What I Specialize In
“The relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship you have.”
“I attended an evening class for meditation with Heather. As soon as I met her I knew she was a very special person: I looked forward to going to class and Heather made me feel calm, safe and so at ease. I felt comfortable as if she was an old friend that I could turn to and she’d listen and help.”
“Its been a few years since I've done the Mindful Self-Compassion course with Heather and I can honestly say it has been the most amazing course I have done, and that's because it purely was for me. I was a bit unsure at first spending money before Christmas because in true Mum-style the inner voice was saying 'What else can I do with this?' but what I learned with Heather was priceless... and I'm worth it. The silent retreat day was so special and will forever remain with me. Taking the time out on a Monday evening was wonderful with some of the most beautiful people I have met to this day, the way you and Yvette taught the course was second to none - your empathy and compassion for us shone through! Both your voices still pop into my head and my heart today💕...My favourite phrase is 'What would you tell your friend' I use this often on myself 💕.”
"I had the pleasure of working with Heather on an 8-week mindfulness course as part of a staff team. The skills and techniques I gained have helped me to develop a stronger mind-body connection, helping me to show myself compassion on difficult days and gratitude in others. Since this course, several years ago, I have used mindfulness techniques and activities with the children I teach helping them to navigate their emotions and tune into themselves. I’m extremely grateful to have been given the opportunity to work with Heather and benefit from her knowledge and skills."
"I have done several mindfulness courses with Heather and she has also provided a couple of 1:1 sessions for my adolescent son. She is an intuitive, insightful and kind teacher who has the most calming voice of anyone I know. My son and I have learnt so much about mindfulness and self compassion from her and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Working with Heather has been life changing for us."
