About Me

I am married and a mum to 3 amazing children – Chloe 8, Adam 18 & Katie 20. Both my own children and all the children I have had the pleasure to teach over the years have been my teachers and inspiration! I have been a Parent Governor for 4 years in a primary school and I am in my 3rd year as a Parent Governor in an Infant School, and as a mum and governor I have seen the changes in Education over the last 15 years and have a good understanding of the challenges a school experiences on a day to day basis.

As well as being a qualified children’s yoga teacher, I also have a certificate in Basic Counselling Skills, Child & Adolescent Counselling, Mindfulness MBCT, Reiki 1 & 2, PSYCH-K and currently studing coaching & NLP.

My Journey

As a teenager my mental health was poor, my self esteem & confidence was very low and I struggled through my teen years and as a young adult dealing with my emotions. At home I was often angry, at school I was withdrawn and very shy. I didn’t believe in myself, I focussed on how awful I looked, and felt as if I didn’t fit in. My negative way of thinking, along with a traumatic loss of my uncle when I was 10yrs old and suppressing the grief, eventually led to depression which carried on into adulthood undiscovered until I was in my 30s.

However, through attending yoga classes, I started to discover a place of peace and stillness, and so began my journey to becoming self aware and understanding me. Through my love of yoga, I decided to train as a children’s yoga teacher, in teen yoga and an adult yoga teacher and I have been teaching children yoga for the last 14 years. About 6 years ago I took part in a deeply life transformational self development programme where I gained deeper realisations about myself. I discovered why my self esteem was so low, I began to understand my life patterns and the dramas created, and I began to take responsibility of my emotions and I feel so blessed to have transformed my life into a very positive, happy one!

Here’s What Our Clients Say

"Really wanted you to know that the shy unconfident Holly that came to your genie programme last year, took part in a school debating competition today, the only girl in her team. Just wanted to say thanks she has overcome a lot using the skills she learnt at the sessions. Thanks a lot!"
"The programme has worked well alongside other strategies we use within school and we feel that the programme has contributed to improving self esteem, confidence and concentration to most children within the class. I would certainly recommend this programme and would definitely have the team back in as the outcomes have proved to be very positive."
