Who am I?
I have a background in Psychology and over 40 years of experience working internationally with meditation and mindful awareness in non-clinical settings. I have a particular interest in broadening access to MBCT – in different cultural settings and populations – and in the potential of MBCT to promote flourishing and wellbeing.
What do I do?
I am the Curriculum and Trainer Lead for the OMC. I am a senior trainer and focus on training mindfulness teachers nationally and internationally in MBCT, MBCT-L, and the new ‘Mindfulness: Taking it Further’ programme developed by OMC. I have worked with Professor Willem Kuyken to develop the new 3-module ‘Introduction to Mindfulness’ curriculum. I am part of a small team of experts leading the field in competency assessment using the Mindfulness-Based Interventions: Teaching Assessment Criteria (MBI:TAC) and in use of the MBI:TAC in teacher training.
