Who am I?

I teach MBCT/MBSR to the public and in a range of workplaces. I was co-chair of the Workplace strand of the Mindful Nation UK inquiry.  My books include Mindfulness (Icon)  and Mindful London (Virgin). I have a PhD in History from Cambridge University and have practiced mindfulness for 25 years.

What do I do?

I teach regular mindfulness courses in the Houses of Parliament on behalf of the OMC.  I’m part of a small group advising the OMC on issues relating to mindfulness in the workplace, such as developing a series of masterclasses in workplace mindfulness. Having taught MBCT/MBSR to the general public since 2009, I’m especially interested in how mindfulness can realise its full potential beyond beginner courses as a transformative path over the course of a lifetime.
