A little about me

Hi, I’m Michelle.

I’m a mindfulness practitioner, founder of My Little Place Of Calm, mother to two gorgeous kids, wife to one amazing husband and I have spent a lifetime’s career in the design industry working with inspiring and creative minds.

I was introduced to mindfulness in 2014 through MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy) after suffering a bout of severe anxiety. I can honestly say it has changed my life. I practice everyday and try to implement mindfulness in everything I do.

My greatest wish is to open up minds — young, old and everything in between — to living mindfully and in the process, try to demystify some of the hype.

I’m not a clinical therapist, I am just someone passionately committed to spreading the benefits of mindfulness practices in the hope that it is as positive an experience for you as it has been for me.

Originally hailing from Scarborough, I am a straight-talking Yorkshire lass. Now living at the other end of the country but still near to my beloved sea, where I feel most at peace.
