"Mistress of merriment and mirth Leela Bunce showed us you don't have to be happy to laugh, you can laugh to be happy..." Chris Evans

Let's face it, laughing is one of the very best things in the world. I love to laugh, so much so I made it my business! In 2005 I trained as a laughter practitioner and created Shinetime ( I love helping people to reconnect with laughter, to get more laughter into their lives, to enjoy all the many, many benefits of laughing regularly and to be more playful and less serious! Laughter is incredibly transformational and it's so amazing to see the changes in the groups I work with after a good laugh!

I have laughed with many amazing companies and organisations large and small, including Disney, The Body Shop, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Mind, NHS, Well London, Parkinsons UK, Viridian Housing, Kent Social Services...amongst many others.

I've also been really lucky to appear regularly on TV and radio spreading the word about laughter! Most recently on BBC Radio 1, ITV's Loose Women, This Morning, BBC 1's groundbreaking series The Science of the Young Ones, BBC 2's Frank Skinner's Opinionated and with Chris Evans on BBC Radio 2.
