Pause was set up in 2020 by friends Izzy Judd and Olivia Horne and is a place to escape the internal and external noise, a place to find space and time for you, and a place to reconnect with yourself. Izzy is a classically trained musician, author and mother of two. She met her husband Harry whilst playing violin on McFly’s Wonderland Tour. After going through a difficult path to parenthood, Izzy wrote her first book Dare To Dream. She remains fascinated by the subject of fertility and is passionate about keeping the conversation going. Her second book, Mindfulness for Mums, is full of simple and practical exercises to help the whole family feel calm, connected and content amid the chaos of life. Olivia Horne is a Self Care and Mindfulness Coach, working with mums to bring more calm, confidence and compassion to the everyday chaos of family life.
