No More Shoulds provides mindfulness courses and workshops to support you through life’s transitions and undulations, for a unique and transformative experience.


Amy Malloy is on a mission for kinder, healthier minds and to lose ‘should’ for good. She is a trained and accredited meditation teacher and a lifelong advocate of cosiness.

With personal experience of the healing powers of mindfulness, she developed a long-lasting personal meditation practice and trained to teach under internationally-renowned mindfulness expert, Shamash Alidina. She is an accredited member of the Society of Holistic Therapists and Coaches.

Alongside a lifelong interest in wellbeing and mental wellbeing, she read languages at Oxford, before embarking on a decade-long career in educational publishing and academic research. She now brings all three passions together to offer a unique blend of evidence-based research literacy, therapeutic coaching and training underpinned by a deep understanding of the pressures surrounding young people and school teachers in education and exams.

She runs regular 4 and 8-week mindfulness courses for those who would like a calmer, more resilient mind, as well as workshops and training for local schools in Oxfordshire.

She lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with her husband, two young daughters, Molly the cat and Daisy the dog.

    Couldn’t agree more! That’s my plan to try and help people (and me) do that, one step at a time ? x

      Great idea! I’m halfway through writing something about unintentionally being a bitch – and telling myself that sometimes it’s ok to just not have the best day! x

    Thank you Lou – it’s so great to hear that others feel the same and that we all club together a bit more. We do let ourselves go on alone for a while, don’t we? Thanks so much for stopping by x
