Teaching MethodsOnline, In Person, Hybrid
With an interest and practice in meditation and yoga throughout my adult life, I began teaching Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (alongside working as a CBT Therapist) in NHS Psychological Therapies in 2011. Since 2014 I have taught MBCT-D for recurrent depression in our NHS commissioned research clinic embedded at Exeter University, and in recent years MBCT for Life, to university, police, social care and NHS staff. I have worked as a research therapist on the RESPOND trial looking at MBCT as a treatment for people currently experiencing depression and for whom CBT for Depression has not been effective. I worked as a Tutor, and then Programme Lead, on the Postgraduate Diploma in MBCT and Approaches at Exeter University and also offer mindfulness based supervision via The Mindfulness Network. I have overseen MBI-TAC Assessment and Moderation services at Exeter University and Oxford Mindfulness Foundation. Formerly, the South West Site Lead for the MBCT in IAPT National Training, I continue to train and supervise for Sussex Mindfulness Centre in the South East Region. I work online on Zoom, face to face and we offer hybrid reunion practice sessions in our clinic at the university.
