I originally did a degree in Ecology as I wanted to learn more about our wonderful planet. I never found a connection as a child with Orthodox religion and found a spiritual connection when I was surrounded by the natural world. After having children I retrained as a psychotherapist and was introduced to mindfulness and compassion by my peers. I am a member of the Mindfulness Association and often include mindfulness and compassion in my work. I am keen to learn more and to connect with others who have a passion to pass the ideas onto others so that it may be beneficial to them and those around them.
