About me & My Qualifications
Hello, I’m Jude, I'm super passionate about people and creating a space to nurture your inner peace.
I am a yoga teacher, my home studio classes offer Yin & Restorative Yoga, Iron Yoga & Slow Flow Vinyasa, Breath Work, Yoga Nidra, and Meditation.
I am a hypnotherapist registered with The National Hypnotherapy Society (HYP21-00202). I also have training to work with young people and children.
I have a L4 Chrysalis Diploma in Counselling Skills & Theory and I am continuing my professional training to L5 (Prince's Trust)
I have completed an ILM recognised Wellbeing Coaching Programme (City & Guilds)
My personal journey and other professional roles
I was a dentist for 24 years and worked as the Clinical Lead and a Partner at The Health Centre Dental Practice in Bradford on Avon. I worked within the health centre until 2020 when I relinquished my clinical activity to take a new career path.
I've been a school governor for 11 years between two secondary schools. I was the Chair at St Augustine’s in Trowbridge a few years ago, and now the Co-Vice-Chair at St Gregory’s in Bath
I have a lot of experience in leadership and management of small to medium sized organisations. In 2021 I gained a CMI Certificate in Leadership and Management, I offer a business consultancy to support wellbeing strategies in the workplace - with a special interest in health and education settings, neurodiversity, work related stress and anxiety
I'm a L4 counsellor, working towards a L5 Diploma.
For many years I juggled my life; family, friends, professional roles and responsibilities. They keep us so busy. As wonderful as they all are, you really need to look after yourself and nurture your own health. Even more so if you're having a difficult time*
Come and see what I can do to help you care for your wellbeing. Welcome to Puresoul.
*I have personal experience of work-related stress and I understand how trauma feels. The subsequent vulnerability and mental health challenges these bring can feel overwhelming. I warmly welcome anyone struggling with their mental health and emotions.
