The aim of this online training programme is to provide a solid platform for developing your teaching. The course is suitable for those who have completed the prerequisites for the course and are willing to work within the OMC’s Ethical Guidelines for MBCT Teachers.
This training also would enable you to register with the international register – ACCESSMBCT
The training is suitable for both clinicians and for those aiming to teach in a non-clinical setting. Once you have completed this programme you will have completed training to teach two MBCT curricula
Professionals working in a clinical setting will be trained to teach Mindfulness for Life (MBCT-L) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression (MBCT-D)
Those not working in a clinical setting will be trained to teach Mindfulness for Life (MBCT-L) and Finding Peace in a Frantic World.
Where we have, or expect to have, more applications than spaces, applications will be prioritised from those who have access to a population and setting where they are actively involved and will be able to introduce MBCT. Specifically we will prioritise applications where there is the potential to engage with marginalised or underrepresented communities and where we might be able to support the implementation of MBCT into non-English speaking communities through training bi-lingual teachers.
Who is it for:
Please note that the OMC Mindfulness programmes are intended for adults over 18 years of age and are not suitable for younger populations.
The OMC provides Confirmation of Attendance letters to all participants who attend our training events. Certificates are issued only after completion of the teacher training pathway, through a formal application process not linked to this event.
I am a teacher of MBCT and MBSR, having trained at the University of Oxford and Bangor respectively. I have taught mindfulness to adults in a range of settings, including the NHS, Multi-Academy Trusts, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, to clinical and educational psychologists, in universities (University College, Kings, London, University of East Anglia), and on public courses.

I have a background in Psychology and over 40 years of experience working internationally with meditation and mindful awareness in non-clinical settings. I have a particular interest in broadening access to MBCT – in different cultural settings and populations – and in the potential of MBCT to promote flourishing and wellbeing.
