as valuable as that of any academic subject. She has over 30 years of
teaching experience; twenty of those years working in schools with young
people from Key Stages 2 – 4 (Ages 6 -19). She cares passionately about the
mental-health and well-being of both pupils and staff. As an accredited
mindfulness teacher, Jennie is a member of the UK College teacher training
team, where she demonstrates how mindfulness can be applied to pupils of all ages.
Jennie also works as a professional therapist, working in schools with staff
and students, but also on a 1:1 basis with clients, running her own
mindfulness evening classes and teaching mindfulness to Health Care
workers and their patients alike.
Jennie is a qualified practitioner in a variety of Complementary Health

They recognise and actively promote ‘social prescribing’, introducing medical
staff to Complementary therapies. This is to help to raise awareness and the
general standard of mental-health and well-being of the general public. Health Care staff are being encouraged to recommend the application of sound alternatives to the use of prescribed drugs.
