Meditation Leader


You are invited to join Phil . Beginners welcome – even if you’ve never meditated before feel free to come along. ​

I spent a large part of my working life (31 year) as a college lecturer, initially teaching marketing (with psychology as an add on) and latterly as a lecturer in event management and music management. After retiring from college, I ran a Guest House with my wife for 7 years. I have now decided to put my interest in people and the workings of the mind to use.

I have always enjoyed communicating with others and, in my role as course tutor, was often the first point of contact when students’ problems arose. My wife is quoted as saying “he was (and still is) known as ‘Uncle Phil’ to many of his students because of his approachable manner and easy going nature.”

I intend to bring the life skills I have gained and the wealth of information and help provided by Peter at Skillful Mind to the meditation classes I will provide in the Musselburgh and East Edinburgh area.

I am very lucky to live in the countryside and will make use of the peace and tranquility that the area provides to continue to learn and develop as learning is a life long experience. At present as well as the business and teaching qualifications gained in the past I have a Diploma in Analytical Hypnotherapy (GHR reg.), Diploma in Mindfulness, a number of psychology based modules from The University of Edinburgh and a background in NLP.
