What qualifications or training do you hold?

Yes. Sussex Mindfulness Centre 2015 I completed the foundation training programme in mindfulness based approaches (MBSR/MBCT). The course lasted from January 2015 – January 2016 and included • Nine and a half days of workshops which are scheduled to take place between January 2015 and February 2016. • Two day-long master classes and the one-day SMC conference • Monthly two-hour seminar groups focusing on mindfulness teacher development. • Observing one group and assisting in the teaching of a second group (each of the two groups should have 8 or 9 weekly sessions with each session lasting 2 hours) • During the second group, course participants will receive 8 hours of supervision. • Personal mindfulness practice – approximately 30-40 minutes daily. • Attending a one-day retreat and a five-day residential mindfulness retreat. • Writing reflective accounts throughout the training.

If you teach MBCT, what professional mental health training do you hold?




How do you continually ensure your knowledge and skills are up-to-date?

I attend workshops at Sussex Mindfulness Centre when I can afford them and also read new research as it is published. I recieve CPD email updates from OMC, SMC and Bangor CMRP.

Do you adhere to appropriate professional and ethical boundaries and frameworks in your work as a mindfulness-based teacher?

Yes. I adhere to best practice guidelines and the ethical approaches that were outlined to me during the foundation training. I also agree to abide by specific codes of conduct for employers I engage with – eg full confidentiality except in circumstances where I fear for the health and safety of a person or persons.
