I have seen how this effects people of all ages, and it’s very sad when I know I have the powers and knowledge to help but I can’t get schools to participate due to austerity.

 I want to offer classes for free to people in need in the community and to train a whole school. Every year there are child suicides and I believe improving their resilience and wellbeing will tackle this sad fact. 

I know myself the pain of anxiety and depression, I left my teaching career as I knew I could help improve wellbeing in others, as a tutor my greatest passion was supporting the tricky child and watching them flourish. 

My business is new and I’m struggling too, (dead car and washer!) so investment is the only way I can achieve my goals and spread happiness and love through mindfulness and artistic practices. If I get  £2000 I can start up some free sessions and courses to teach both Youthmindfulness and Artfulness in the areas of Poole, Bournemouth, Wimborne, Salisbury and Gillingham.  If I get more than £2000 I can reach further and maybe achieve my goal to train a whole school. I also want to offer a free 6 week course to patients under NHS addiction treatment and others on counselling waiting lists.... we all know they are long: 6 months plus.

I have the passion and drive but I’m a  sole trader, a single mum, with an overdraft! so I have just myself, I’d love to find backers, new contacts and mentors. Together we can action great changes...NAMASTE1536143083_08B9FE7C-382A-4CA3-B8AE-D22E0
