I am a UK-based mindfulness teacher and supervisor. I lead public mindfulness courses, workshops and retreats in London, Surrey and Sussex, and have introduced and taught mindfulness in workplaces such as Accenture, UNICEF UK, Imperial College Business School, the Houses of Parliament, Tate and Ardingly College. I have written three books: Into The Heart of Mindfulness, Mindfulness: How To Live Well By Paying Attention and (as co-author) The Mindful Manifesto. I have also written extensively on mindfulness for newspapers and magazines, and wrote the Be Mindful report for the Mental Health Foundation. I co-teach the Foundation's Be Mindful Online training course.
I am an associate of the Oxford Mindfulness Centre and Sussex Mindfulness Centre, and regularly speak on mindfulness-related topics, in the media and at conferences, festivals and other events. I also supervise other mindfulness teachers, and am a listed supervisor at The Mindfulness Network.
As well as teaching mindfulness to groups and individuals, I am passionate about the benefits of mindfulness in wider society. I am a trustee (and former co-director) of The Mindfulness Initiative, which supports the Mindfulness All-Party Parliamentary Group (MAPPG) to develop mindfulness-based policies for the UK, and I co-wrote and co-edited the MAPPG's Mindful Nation UK report. I have also worked on the Parliamentary mindfulness teaching team, leading sessions for MPs and their staff.
