Hycinth Taylor

I became interested in meditation back in 2000 when I spent time at an ashram in India, where I experienced the benefits of a regular meditation practice. I became interested in the idea of teaching meditation in 2010 as an addition to my Psychotherapy practice. I then began the journey of exploring the pathways to becoming a mindfulness teacher. I have been teaching mindfulness-based cognitive therapy since 2013 within my local community, organisations, and the NHS. I later trained with Misp to deliver mindfulness in schools.

I have been running mindfulness-based workshops, and retreats since 2017. I completed the mindfulness-based inclusion training (MBIT) for people of colour, delivering mindfulness from an African Caribbean perspective that is able to meet the needs of black indigenous people of colour. (BIPOC)

I completed my mindfulness supervision training with Mindfulness Network (MN) 2021. I have supervised IAPT trainees undergoing the Mindfulness teacher training programme.
