BSC/Hons UWCM (Cardiff University)

The Wellbeing Atelier was inspired as a space to share my clinical work as an Occupational Therapist, with the ‘Wellbeing Ateliers’ being the collective name for the groups and individual sessions I facilitate. These can take many forms such as exploration of occupational balance, environmental architecture and social prescription. Most people meet me through a mindful compassion based atelier, or perhaps via the Parkinson’s platform Get LOUD! Stay LOUD! where I run weekly sessions.

I worked within the National Health Service (NHS) for over 18 years, specialising in women’s mental health, addictions and mindfulness. I adored my job and have been so grateful to transfer my skills and knowledge to my independent practice here in France. I have been meditating for many years and continue to have passion and intrigue for the way in which mindfulness and mindful self-compassion can positively influence my day to day life, relationships and understanding of herself.

I moved with my family to France at the end of 2016, my husband and children are all French, the children also have Irish and British Nationality thanks to me. So in summary, I’m Josephine, thank you for following my work and if you’re ever in need do reach out. I’m rather good in a crisis.
