I provide ongoing supervision privately for qualified and practising Mindfulness teachers. I also offer individual mentoring and support for Mindfulness practitioners in order to help develop their practice after completing the Mindfulness training. I am happy to talk through your individual needs with you. Just get in touch by calling me on 01622 670587 or by sending an email to me at [email protected]
As an associate teacher and supervisor at the Mindfulness Network I am also available through their network (Mindfulness Network)
(from the Mindfulness Network website)
Mindfulness supervision is a regular space that is contracted between supervisor and supervisee that enables them to reflect together on the supervisee's mindfulness practice and explore how it impacts and integrates with their work and life. This process is dedicated to developing and deepening the growth, understanding and effectiveness of the supervisee's application of mindfulness, both personally and in their working life.
On-going mindfulness supervision is an important part of the good practice requirements for teachers of mindfulness-based courses. It can provide you with an invaluable opportunity to reflect upon and inquire about your mindfulness teaching and practice. This may include 'live' teaching practice and feedback, inquiry around issues arising in your teaching, and/or discussion based on videoed sessions. It may also focus upon your personal mindfulness practice and how it impacts on your work.
Unlike other experiences of supervision that you may have had, though, what is unique to mindfulness supervision is that the session itself is imbued with mindfulness in terms of practice, embodied presence and compassion.
The sessions are very much a collaborative process. The intention is to create an alliance between you and your supervisor that will foster an open and creative exploration of your personal practice and how it might interweave with your teaching and mindfulness in work.
Because mindfulness supervision is complex, the Mindfulness Network sets high standards for our supervisors.
I adhere to the UK Network's Good Practice Guidelines for Teaching Mindfulness-based Courses. And to the Good Practice Guidelines for Trainers of Mindfulness Based Teachers, which you can read about here.
