Hi, welcome to this website! I am an internationally certified mindfulness teacher and have been teaching quality mindfulness courses, workshops and retreats on the Sunshine Coast and in Brisbane since 2006.

I am also a QCA/PACFA registered Counsellor (Clin. Mem.)/ psychotherapist, with a special interest in mindfulness and body-based approaches, with 15 years of experience.

Mindfulness is our basic human ability to be fully present in our lives. To be really aware of where we are, what we are experiencing and what we’re doing. And to not be overly reactive or feeling overwhelmed by what’s going on.

Mindfulness is a valuable life skill that anyone can further develop!

Counselling and psychotherapy improve your well-being and mental health, by helping you to explore and transform psychological, emotional and behavioural patterns that get in the

way of fully living your life and being who you really are.
