About Mimi

I have trained and worked with various forms of artistic, creative, meditation practices and psychotherapy since 2002, focusing my sessions on my interests in neuroscience, breath, biology, and nature, space and place and horticulture. In 2010 I began to incorporate these into my sessions as an ecotherapist and walking guide.  

Achieving peace of mind & a healthy body by taking back control of own body, mind and soul is becoming ever more important as we become increasingly disassociated from our selves, nature and one another in today’s over-stimulating and ever demanding society.

In 2015 I suffered a life changing illness and I found it near impossible to find classes in anything to cater for my accessible needs. In response, I ensure my sessions are adaptive and inclusive as possible and run several classes and workshops for those with chronic illness, pain and disabilities.

Since then, I trained as a Ramblers UK walking guide and in horticulture at Capel Manor and volunteer as a fruit and vegetable gardener in the Royal Parks Regents Park community allotment which is a space for local groups and individuals to learn about fruit and vegetable growing.

 

 

Depending on the session’s focus and your needs, I use quirky and creative techniques to bring us to a level of connecting with ourselves and our environment in ways that we don’t usually have the opportunity to. Working into each walking and ecotherapy session the 5 elements, seasons, animal and plant biology.

I bring an element of playfulness, curiosity and adventure into my sessions. You’ll find poetry, creative and abstract writing, storytelling, movement and more in many of the sessions. Being open and having a childlike wonder helps! 

I am passionate about sharing these simple techniques to help empower people to have more control over their internal life so that they can live well and do well.

I speak on living with invisible disabilities in the press and on radio, writings are published in journals such as the British Medical Journal, present at events and workshops, consult major UK charities on policy, PR and marketing and work with employers and organisations to make their products, services and workplace more inclusive.

 

In my classes you will learn techniques to take into your daily life to help you calm yourself deeply, deal skillfully with challenging situations and develop a strong sense of wellbeing.
