Anne has a great deal of experience with her own practice and with teaching methods to help people relax, unwind and let go of stress. She became a Reiki practitioner in 1996 and later went on to become a Reiki Master Teacher in 2010, following this up with Karuna Reiki (Compassionate Reiki) in 2012.
In 2005 Anne completed her Certificate in Education to become a Further and Higher Education Teacher and spent a number of years teaching Art subjects before completing her Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in 2009.
In 2012 Anne completed her Meditation Teacher Diploma and started to offer guided meditation classes using visualisation, breathing techniques and methods to focus the mind. She then developed a deep interest in mindfulness and went on to train as a Zen Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher with Zenways, completing her initial training in 2015 and her Advanced Zen Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher Training in 2017. In 2019 Anne continued her training with Zenways and went on to train in Zen Yoga. It wasn’t long before she continued her training, achieving a distinction for her Professional Relaxation Therapy Diploma and Tibetan Buddhist Meditation.
