As well as a freelance Mindfulness Teacher and Mental Health Trainer, I am a father of four and grandfather of two beautiful boys. Professionally I have 20 years’ experience as a Mental Health Practitioner, with group work, counselling & CBT certification. I have also worked as a BME Outreach-worker and Fathers Development worker. And it is those skills I now use as a founder member of ‘Abandofbrothers’ Oxford, a charity dedicated to work with and mentor disadvantaged young men who are in the Criminal Justice System.
My main role at the OMC is as a Teacher on the Public Courses, which for me is a real honour and privilege, to be alongside the participants as they find their way with these extensive teachings.
As an Associate of the OMC I feel passionate abut being able to advocate and represent the wealth of opportunity that the OMC provides. To this end I serve on the ‘Accessibility Group’ working on diverse issues with the aim of improving access to people from all sectors of society on to MBCT courses.
