I research and write about Zen practice, relationships and psychotherapy, trauma and healing. I’ve written a bit more about Buddhism and relationships in this journal. In 2008 I studied for a year at a Zen monastery. My work has been featured in TEDx, The Guardian, the BBC, and as editor to the Buddhist Society.

Before qualifying as a psychotherapist I worked as a journalist, human rights researcher, documentary filmmaker, and arts educator. Half Swedish and half Filipina I grew up in Zimbabwe, Sweden and South East Asia. Currently I live with my husband in London and have four mostly grown-up stepkids.
