Helen Williams is a leader in the fast-growing mindfulness community in Dubai. With 40 years of experience as a counsellor and teaching mindfulness and meditation, Williams’ new business Mindful ME will undoubtedly attract followers from all over the emirate.

The New Zealander became renowned for her work as director of LifeWorks, one of the first such organisations to offer counselling and similar services in Dubai. She set it up with her daughter Carmen Benton in 2009. After leaving last year, she said she hopes Mindful ME will support and nurture the expanding awareness of mindfulness practices to improve personal and professional lives. The organisation offers private sessions, retreats and bespoke group experiences to help people improve their lives.
