I teach Mindful Self Compassion (MSC), Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR), the Breathworks courses Mindfulness of Health (MfH) and Mindfulness for Stress (MfH), as well as assisting the MBSR Teacher Training programme of Mind UK.
I have also been involved in the conceptual development and content creation of the pioneering new course "Radical Self-Care", initially aimed towards those may associate in some way with LGBTQIA+.
This is a research project with City University and its approach draws from psychological and neuroscience research on mindfulness and compassion, such as Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) as well as the practices of MSC MBSR and MBCT.
Radical Self-Care’s initial focus was on supporting wellbeing and resilience in people within LGBTQIA+ communities and has also now been trialed for general workforce wellbeing.
