Cultivating awareness is at the heart of everything I teach. With this insight, I guide people to work with their body and felt sense to explore new ways to think, feel, move, relate and be. This creates fresh options in areas where we may have previously ‘felt stuck’ or acted out of habit.
This work can lead to profound effects on how we experience our inner and outer worlds. Clients often report a greater sense of clarity, direction, ease and joy, in both movement and life.
I specialise in supporting individuals experiencing stress, burnout, persistent pain and fatigue through coaching, movement and meditation. I draw upon modern pain science and a variety of holistic techniques to help people with regaining movement patterns, improving strength and mobility, nervous system regulation, pacing and energy management, acceptance, working towards change, improving feelings of self worth, determining and expressing boundaries, building supportive relationships and much more.
My aim is to empower clients and make this work practical, sustainable and easy to integrate into our everyday modern lives.
“I feel like I have just had a massage.”Feedback on Mindful Movement & Relaxation classes, from a regular attendee
“I loved the course, it was a great size group and I felt everyone was supportive and sensitive to each other, due to the environment Amy created and the sense of calm in the studio. I really enjoyed discussing and learning the different aspects of meditation and mindfulness. It has given me an excellent grounding to move forward and I would recommend it to absolutely everyone. It was my oasis of calm in a mad week. After every class my mind felt fresh and open and eager to discuss all the topics from class. I don’t think I could rave more about a tutor, studio or course. My only complaint is it was only 8 weeks and I could do it forever. Thanks so much Amy!”8 week Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation course student
“I have been taking Amy’s classes for around a year, and I have noticed a massive shift in my body and my awareness of what my body needs. I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis for over 15 years in various joints in my body and have often taken yoga classes over the years, but they were never good at helping my condition. With Amy I finally feel like I can be at ease and know that Amy understands what I need rather than trying to force postures that just don’t work for me. Amy doesn’t just make adjustments she helps you really be in tune with your body and you will uncover even the smallest movements have a huge impact. I highly recommend Amy’s classes, you won’t regret starting this journey!”Regular Mindful Movement & Relaxation class attendee
“I began coaching sessions with Amy, just over a year ago. Throughout lockdown, I had felt disconnected from others, my work and passions. I alternated between periods of over work and then disinterest. This impacted my sleep and mood. I experienced social anxiety and negative thoughts, around connecting with others. Dating felt like something impossible for me, even though I really wanted to meet someone and enjoy a relationship.
Amy offers a really safe, kind and none judgemental space in coaching sessions. She helped me deepen my self awareness and supported me in challenging some negative beliefs about myself. She encourages you to connect to your body – noticing how things feel. This was a game changer! She has led me through some really useful and practical embodiment exercises to help me develop different aspects of myself – from getting more ‘fired up’ to help with certain work situations, to calming myself before stress inducing events (usually work or dating related) and in slowing down and being more playful in social situations.
Looking back over the past year, I have grown so much. Amy helped me reconnect to my values and use these as a guide for moving towards what I want out of life. She listened and asked thoughtful questions. She offered accountability when I needed it.
I feel I have more balance with my work and am performing well, with less burnout. I developed the confidence to begin dating and am really enjoying a new romantic relationship. Most importantly, I feel like I have developed so much awareness of myself and have some tools that I can use to help me in so many areas of life.’Former Coaching Client
“It was a great course, even after the first session I felt I had learned so much. Amy is a great teacher!”8 week Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation course student
“I’ve always been somewhat of a sceptic when it comes to yoga and relaxation exercises because I’ve never really found them to work for me. I have taken Amy’s Mindful Movement & Relaxation class once a week for a few months now and can wholeheartedly say that no matter what sort of day I have had or what sort of week I have had, the class always relaxes me. I sleep better and my mood has generally improved. Amy’s teaching style allows you to acknowledge your body and mind without ever judging them and let’s you sink slowly into a very relaxed state. I look forward to the class each week and cannot wait for the next one.”Regular Mindful Movement & Relaxation class attendee
