It is designed for those with an existing practice and teachers (or trainee teachers) of mindfulness-based programmes. It also forms part of what the British Association of Mindfulness-Based Approaches (BAMBA) outlines as continued professional development.

About the Teacher
I am a qualified Social Worker, graduating from University of Umea, Sweden in 1979, when I moved to the UK. In 2006, I met Professor Mark Williams and began my training as an MBCT Teacher. I was then invited to join Mark’s team and became involved in developing the Oxford Mindfulness Centre (OMC). I worked initially as part of the research team, teaching patients with recurring depression the 8-week MBCT course and in 2011 initiated the delivery of the courses to the general population. I was also responsible for managing the training of clinicians, within the Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust. I have continued to offer supervision in the Health Service in both Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. Read more here
