I am an experienced primary school teacher and qualified
mindfulness educator. I am interested in promoting positive mental health in young
children, teenagers, and adults. I successfully led personal, social and health education (PSHE) for nearly ten years in school. I have a child psychology and CBT diploma, I am a level 3
Person-Centred Counsellor and I am currently studying a psychology masters course. I am not a psychologist, therapist, or
person-centred counsellor, but I am person-centred in my approach. This means I adhere to three core principles
of empathy, congruence, and unconditional positive regard. I believe all humans have the innate capacity to heal and grow, and I know we can have complete autonomy over our well-being given the right conditions.

enquire about themselves and the world they live in - free from judgment or
All my work is delivered through the lens of mindfulness
although this doesn't always look like a room full of meditating humans. Mindfulness is much more fun when it is a
mindful adventure or a festival of thought.

I contacted Beth for support with my daughter’s anxieties. Beth was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, warm and very approachable. She made the sessions fun and interactive and my very reluctant daughter really engaged. Beth’s advice for us as parents was insightful and incredibly useful. We have used all of the resources and guidance she provided. Thank you so much.
