Zoe Shobbrook Fisher

mindfulness and mindful self-compassion teacher, trainer, supervisor and therapist in Richmond, London UK.

About me

My wish is to share mindfulness and compassion approaches for greater wellbeing and joy in a way that is accessible, personal and with integrity. This means how I work is rooted in my own practice and life experience. I started practising yoga 30 years ago and since then I have explored many mainstream and sacred paths which continue to inspire my unique offerings.

Mindfulness & Mindful Self-Compassion beautifully integrate the many strands that inspire me in a wonderful non-exclusive way. I want these heart-wisdom approaches to feel welcoming to everyone. Having been at one point myself a single parent who received support to begin my training I try to offer reduced fees when I can for those experiencing financial hardship – please feel welcome to ask for more details.  I love living near Richmond Park in London, as well as wild outdoor swimming, conscious dance and being an occasional singer-songwriter. Creativity informs everything I am and do.


My expertise and experience is reflected by my senior role supervising and training teachers for the Mindfulness Network and The Centre for Mindful Self-Compassion.

I’ve been running mindfulness and self-compassion courses and retreats since 2009 for : general public, workplace, NHS, MIND, charities and at  The Mindfulness Project.

For 11 years I worked as a university student-staff counsellor and group facilitator so I have a breadth of mental health clinical experience. I have a particular interest in supporting beyond beginners deepening their practice and as well as being Retreat Lead at the Mindfulness Network I am part of Mindfulness Beyond. I am passionate about spreading the word about self-compassion and am one of the coordinating team developing the UK mindful self-compassion teachers community which you can see more about here.
