I’m Amy Polly (AKA The Mindfulness Rebel). Welcome to my world... it’s mostly pink, very caring, and a little bit cheeky. Feel free to come on in and get comfy, everyone is welcome.
Mindfulness is my thing, I absolutely love it, I’ve been practicing for nearly ten years and long story short, it’s been a game changer. I am now a teacher, speaker, author and mental health mentor with mindfulness sitting at the core of everything that I do.
There are still so many misconceptions around mindfulness. It isn’t just meditation. It is a brain training. It’s a tool that can help in so many areas of life. I am here to bust the myths because not only can it help with managing our own mental health, but it can absolutely be a force for change when it comes to organisational culture and mental health too.
I am not a zen robot, I am a human being, just like you. I wanted to rebel against all this empty your mind BS and create my own realistic and down to earth mindfulness-based approach for mental health and well-being, so that’s what I did!
Believe it or not I have a corporate background as a fully qualified accountant, working in practice, as well as in the private and public sector, and I gave all that up in 2021 after almost 20 years!
My most recent role was as a senior leader in the Fire Service managing three departments and strategic lead for mental health and well-being, working on the creation and delivery of our wellbeing strategy.
My training in mental health, my role in fire, my position as a leader and my qualification as a mindfulness teacher led me to my passion; sharing the positive and lasting impact that mindfulness can bring to individuals and the workplace, if delivered in the correct way, and treated as an investment rather than a token gesture.
I also have a deep rooted drive to help mums and created an 8 week mindfulness programme, having had my own challenges pre-birth, during birth and post-birth.
