Located on the Island of Guernsey, I specialise in teaching Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Life (MBCT-L) following the curriculums and teaching methods set out by the Oxford Mindfulness Foundation. MBCT-L is a specific strand of mindfulness aimed at those who want to navigate challenges with greater ease, increase positive experiences and move towards realising their potential.
Informed by the modern psychological sciences of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Positive Psychology and the contemplative traditions of Buddhism, mindfulness has evolved from decades of research and development to become a range of evidence-based interventions used to improve mental health and support wellbeing.
The essence of Mindfulness begins with training our attention; if our mind is more often in the present moment, we are able to notice and savour life’s pleasures that might otherwise pass us by. Rather than rushing through life on autopilot, learning to live more mindfully allows us strengthen and reconnect with our inbuilt capacity for peace, joy, fulfilment and wellbeing.
By developing our present-moment awareness, we are also able to see challenges and difficulties with greater clarity and objectivity. We are better able to free ourselves from unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaving; Instead of slipping into habitual reactivity, we learn to respond more wisely, with greater compassion towards ourselves and others.
I currently offer two evidence-based courses and follow-on sessions formulated by the Oxford Mindfulness Foundation, the world-leading authority on mindfulness research and education. Each course is delivered in-person and includes a detailed handbook and an audio file of guided meditations to support your learning during courses, and into the future.
