I have spent 15 years working in the ‘social change’ space – mainly in capacity building including with formal NGOs like Oxfam GB, INTRAC and Freedom from Torture.
I am a co-founding member of the Training Providers Forum, which shares best practices in training provision to the international development and humanitarian sector.
I co-founded in 2014 and co-organise the Mindfulness and Social Change Network with Luke Wreford which is a community of practice exploring the intersection between mindfulness and social change. The network is international, and now has over 200 members.
For the last four years, I’ve worked as a trainer, advisor and fundraiser for Ecodharma/the Ulex Project in Spain which train grassroots activist and change makers from across Europe. I train on Mindfulness and Social Change, Transformative Collaboration, and Thinking Diversity Radically.
I run eight week courses, and mindfulness mornings and monthly sits in Oxford UK. I work at Makespace a co-working/social change space in Oxford.
I have done the Super T training of trainers for activists with Training for Change, and have a post graduate diploma in Mindfulness Based Approaches with Bangor University.
