Co-Founder, Co-Director

The Founder and driving force behind Sense of Calm, Jen delivers the Pop-Up Sensory sessions and Little Tummy Tigers workshops, as well as managing the bookings, social media and advertising. She is a creative force and her artwork is the basis for the original characters and concepts on the website and around you during her sessions.

"As a mummy myself to a vivacious 3 year old, I can appreciate how on the go parenting can be, and how valuable social interaction and friendship building with other parents is. We run Pop-Up Sensory in the friendly café at Déda and do our Little Tummy Tigers workshops at the relaxing venue of Mickleover Community Centre."

Jen created Sense of Calm to enable parents and caregivers to bring their child to a calming experience that encourages bonding and connection, incorporating cognitive development and learning through sensory play. While developing Pop-Up Sensory she felt that a quiet and relaxed café setting with a semi-enclosed sensory space that parents could have exclusive access to would facilitate social connections between caregivers and would especially support new parents to feel connected to others as well as building their special bond with their child.

"Especially when I was a new mum, sometimes I just needed a little bit of calm in my day. For that reason I created Sense of Calm to help other parents find a fun daytime activity and (child permitting!) a little tranquillity for you both."
