One to One Work
I work with people on a one-to-one basis in a number of ways:
Clear Seeing™ is a form of guided inquiry enabling you to look closely at experience and see through and beyond the patterning and beliefs that cause suffering. This guided inquiry fosters clarity and transformation as it releases deep-rooted patterns (read morewww.mindfulnesscourse.co.uk).
I offer supervision for mindfulness teachers and personal practice mentoring.
I hold a doctorate from The University of Liverpool School of Sociology and Social Policy and have lectured in sociology, research methodology and women’s and gender studies. I have also worked as a social researcher commissioned by the National Health Service. I am a qualified person-centred counsellor and have worked with people suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, low self-esteem and depression.
