Carola adheres to the BAMBA (British Association of Mindfulness Based Approaches) good-practice guidelines and was trained at Mindfulness UK under Karen Atkinson. Carola has worked closely with Rosalie Dores (Mindfulness Network) in supervision and has been teaching mindfulness for over ten years, to performers and musicians as part of their vocal or stage training, as well as the general public.

I love working with people and accompanying them on their journey – in any setting.”

What People Say

“This class changed my life. I took this class because I felt like life was passing me by, and I was not enjoying it as much as I could be. This class taught me how to respond to difficult situations and people with kindness and grace. I highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to live a more fulfilling life.”
