Jennie Webb

Jenny has been a Quaker for the past 37 years who spent most of her adult life working in the NHS as Clinical Psychologist. At various times Jenny worked with working age people with mental health problems, the elderly, adults with learning disability and people with neurological problems. During these years she followed a spiritual path, mainly involving Quakerism and Buddhism. It was of great interest to her when the practice of mindfulness entered the mainstream, and became accepted as a legitimate and effective way to help promote people’s psychological wellbeing. Jenny learnt to weave as a young adult, and for some time taught an adult education class. Since retiring she has enjoyed taking up weaving again. Jenny has become fascinated by its potential, as one of the most ancient of crafts, a functional tool, a means of creative expression and an aid to mindfulness. Jenny is a member of the British Psychological Society.
