Who am I?
I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and Mindfulness Teacher, and have worked in NHS settings for many years. I did my original core training in Occupational Therapy and also trained Occupational Therapists – it was in these roles that I embraced an integrated approach to working with people with physical health difficulties, which I have carried on in my current role.
What do I do?
I currently teach MBCT courses, tailored for individuals living with ongoing physical health conditions, within the NHS. I am involved, with other OMC colleagues, in ongoing delivery of Mindfulness Courses to University of Oxford students on a termly basis. I also provide input to the OMC sitting group, which meets weekly. I was involved in the MYRIAD project in schools, which involved my teaching teachers Mindfulness as part of their ongoing training to deliver Mindfulness in their own classrooms.
Why I love working at the OMC
I completed my Mindfulness teacher training at the OMC and felt really blessed to be a part of such a supportive and encouraging group, which really increased my confidence and my own wellbeing. I love working with like-minded colleagues and relish the enthusiasm of the team for a compassionate and well-rounded approach to life in general. It is a good place to be, and I feel very privileged to be part of the team!
