Your trainer is Glenda Irwin

Glenda Irwin is a senior facilitator, and facilitators' trainer/supervisor for Mindfulness Works.

She began teaching mindfulness to children in 2010 as a response to her own challenges as a parent. She trained with Amy Saltzman (USA ‘Still Quiet Place’) and went on to write many courses and parent/child mindfulness lessons. She is the creator of ‘Mindful Colouring for Kids’.

Glenda and her partner, Chris Irwin, direct Mindfulness Matters — teaching mindfulness to organisations and the general public, focused on creating community for practitioners of mindfulness. Seeing clients for one-to-one sessions using ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and with her trainings as a life coach, Glenda firmly believes the support of a compassionate teacher is key to our finding our unique ‘me-ness’. Glenda’s principle teachers are Joseph Goldstein, Rick Hanson, Dr Paul Gilbert and her own son, Cameron Irwin.

Glenda was a successful Film Art Director during her 18-year OE. She worked on Star Wars, danced with Keith Richards and asked Frank Sinatra to sing her a line from ‘New York, New York’ which he kindly did. To this day, she loves art and movement; some of her hobbies include practicing Qi Gong and sketching (both of which she uses to further her mindfulness practice).

Glenda has a ‘glass half full’ nature and feels as if life just worked out the way she thought it would, but via a different route.
