Brief CV


I have some fifty years' experience as a supervisor/manager/worker in various settings. These include the NHS, the voluntary sector, teaching, running my own business and looking after my home and children.

From 2007 to 2013 I helped to found and operate Arkordia, a co-operative dedicated to providing a counselling and psychotherapy service accessible to those with a limited income.

I have practised mindfulness (insight) meditation since the 1970's. Since 2003 I have danced 5 Rhythms movement meditation.
