Sue Pheasey, B.SC., P.G.C.E.
I graduated with a psychology degree and then undertook a PGCE with Manchester Metropolitan University where I trained to become a primary teacher. I have worked in both primary and secondary including special educational needs schools working with children with autism and complex needs.
Several years ago I began suffering with anxiety and depression brought on by work related stress. At this time I was introduced to mindfulness, which literally turned my life around. It took me through a journey of self-discovery and I began to study mindfulness and it’s benefits in education and the workplace. I have since qualified as a mindfulness teacher and teach mindfulness in primary, secondary and post 16 education; I teach mindfulness in the workplace and also facilitate courses with the mental health charity Mind in Salford.
