She has used the training she received from a Buddhist teacher in Canberra to lead mindfulness classes for children and meditation sessions for small groups of adults. She has been using mindfulness and meditation in her daily life for more than a decade and accepts that it is a lifelong practice from which we can learn how to cope with the stresses and strains of modern life, but at the same time, grow spiritually. She is a qualified and experienced teacher with a background in science who has been tutoring and mentoring young people for many years. She has used this experience to bring a mutually respectful, supportive, and positive environment to her teaching so that each individual can feel comfortable and relaxed enough to focus on their own practice.

Denise has lived and worked in Australia, England and Germany. She has explored mindfulness through both religious and secular teachings and with many cultures and traditions through her travels to every continent. She strongly believes that mindfulness goes beyond all our differences of faith or custom and helps us to become more connected to our human family, and that of the living planet.

Denise is happy to work with individuals, small groups or classes, in private, and in workshop or class settings. She is particularly interested in working with children and young adults; to teach them how to use mindfulness as a tool to help cope with the challenges facing young people in this modern world.
