1 Day Workshop
The inquiry process in MBCT is very important to participants’ learning, but many teachers find inquiry skills the most difficult to learn. This workshop is intended to demystify the inquiry process. We will consider the purposes of inquiry, the importance of the teacher’s embodiment of mindfulness, conceptual underpinnings, and practical inquiry skills. We will also consider challenging situations that can arise during inquiry and ways of responding to them. The atmosphere of this workshop is warm and supportive to encourage exploration and skill development.
IMPORTANT: You do not need to complete this workshop if you are currently on the OMC 12-month cohort training route.
This training is part of a mindfulness teacher training programme. Please do not sign up for this training if your only experience with MBCT is as a course participant, as your application will not be approved, and you may be charged an administration fee when we refund your payment

Before joining the OMC I worked as a school teacher, SENCO, CAMHS liaison and part of the Senior Leadership Team in a Pupil Health Referral Unit in Salford where I taught mindfulness to pupils and led its’ implementation. Previously I was an Assistant Head at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital school and before that, a primary school teacher. I have taught mindfulness courses to teachers, heads, parents and educational psychologists. I have an MSc in Mindfulness based approaches from Bangor University, where my particular interest was looking at mindfulness for school teachers.
