Supervision Experience

I have delivered Mindfulness Supervision to trainee, newly qualified and experienced Mindfulness Teachers since 2018.  I also have extensive experience of offering Clinical Supervision to Psychological Therapists and Mental Health professionals in the NHS, public sector and private practice.  I am trained in using the MBI-TAC to support the supervision process and for the assessment of students in training.  I am particularly experienced in supervising newly qualified teachers and those with wobbly confidence levels.

Personal Practice

My personal mindfulness and meditation practice, both formal and informal, is an integral, non-negotiable and continually resourcing part of my life.  I have practiced meditation and various forms of mindful movement since 1997.  I particularly value opportunities to practice in community and continue to be nourished and inspired by teachings, practice and experiences on retreats which I attend on my own and with my children.
