ABOUT ME

"Excellent - Ian is always able to interpret and relate personal experiences into the context of MBCT, which helps my learning."

"Quality of teaching very professional"

"Ian is kind and helps people to feel at home without putting pressure to do anything but giving plenty of opportunity."

Having worked in Senior Management and Directorial Positions for over 25 years, I have both experienced my own Stress and wellbeing needs and seen it many times in others.

 

It is this that firstly brought me to learn Mindfulness as a daily practice for myself and then inspired me to train to be a teacher of the practice.

I engaged in a year long Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) Teacher Training Programme, within Nottingham Mindfulness Centre (part of the NHS, based in Nottingham).

I am also a qualified Counsellor, able to draw upon Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Person Centred approaches.

 

I now engage in a regular ongoing mindfulness practice and receive continuous training  supported by organisations such as the Oxford Mindfulness Centre (OMC).​

The MBCT programme is offered out of my Wantage practice to revolving weekly groups. This is a beautiful blend of ancient wisdom, alongside the research rigour of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

 

This is an evidenced based program both practiced within and recommended by the NHS.
