I am a mother of two happy and lovely daughters and live in Zürich. I am an ethnologist and have worked for several years as an English and German teacher in China and Switzerland. Having grown up bilingual myself – my mother is Welsh and my father Swiss – we speak both English and Swiss German at home. I love travelling and getting to know very different people. I love the sound of the sea and the wind in the trees. I enjoy swimming in a cool lake, hiking in the mountains, doing yoga and enjoying some peace and quiet in between – just being in the present moment. Humour, creativity and courage in people make me feel optimistic.
I gave birth to both my daughters with the help of HypnoBirthing in a mindful, calm and relaxed way at a birth house. It gave me a wonderful feeling of my own strength and connection with my children and my partner. Sadly a lot of births are not described with these words and it is my wish to change this. Mindfulness and meditation are still part of my daily life, especially after doing a course in mindful parenting.
I am now looking
forward to passing on this knowledge to new parents, so that more families can
have a mindful, self-determined and gentle start to their family life.
In September 2020 I additionally completed a course at "Achtsame Schulen Schweiz" and am now happy to be qualified to do mindfulness trainings in Kindergartens and Primary Schools.
