I am a trained Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher with a meditation practise of almost 30 years. I teach the mindfulness courses according to requirements from mini introductions from 2 hours, half, full day, weekend and the full 8 week MBSR training courses. During all I support participants wellbeing by guiding and supporting your learning experience. I train with The Centre for Mindfulness Research & Practice (CMRP) at the University of Bangor. I follow the CMRP’s Good Practice Guidelines and BPS’s Code of Ethics (http://www.bps.org.uk/).
I am an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS), also a Chartered Psychologist and Chartered Scientist. After leaving school at 15, I worked in shops and factories, then in accounts. Eventually I moved over to catering, eventually training in Hotel Management in Switzerland. Returning back to the UK, I initially trained as a nurse; then took adult literacy which lead my doctorate in Psychology. I became a lecturer at the University London then Kent at Canterbury, Kent and returned to Goldsmiths as a Visiting Honorary Research Fellow. My research area is learning and memory in which I continue to publish. I am not a clinical psychologist and do not offer any psychological therapies.
