In 2005, I co-founded Mindfulhealth LLP (www.mindfulhealth.co.uk), which provides courses, consultancy, supervision and teacher training in partnership with the local NHS Trust. Over the last 7 years, I been a lecturer at the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice (CMRP at Bangor University) on their Mindfulness Masters Programme. I have helped develop clinical use of mindfulness with the local CAMHs service and worked extensively with carers in the community. I’ve also worked in a hospital setting within a Child Development Centre using MBCT and MBSR with the parents/carers of children with complex needs. Before that, I was spiritual director of the Brighton Buddhist Centre and before that an acting headmaster in a local Sussex primary school.
