I came to New Zealand 8 years ago from the UK and have been in social work most of my professional life. Since that time, I have consolidated my passion for mindfulness. As a clinician in mental health, I can see the great potential mindfulness offers, and use it in my work, and observe the benefits it provides for people. Developing awareness and gaining a better understanding of what limits their lives, but also how to live to their full potential and freedom of choice. I use modalities of DBT, ACT, Schema therapy and EMDR.
