What previous participants have said:
“Sandrine has a gentle, kind manner and creates a safe space where you feel supported and looked after. She is like a gardener patiently watering and encouraging the seeds of mindfulness in you and inspiring you by her example. I loved the course, I feel it has given me the tools to maintain a higher level of well-being.”
“An excellent course for starting the process of understanding the causes of stress and of then learning how to cope, and in the process taking care of yourself and all those you come into contact with. Can’t recommend highly enough”.
“I would definitely recommend this course. Life, as we all know, is not always easy. This course will help all to deal with life’s ups and downs and learn to enjoy life again if you are finding it difficult”
My name is Sandrine, I have been practising meditation since 1993 under the guidance of qualified teachers. I was encouraged by my Buddhist teacher to teach mindfulness. I wanted to keep the integrity of mindfulness combined with modern psychology and therefore undertook an in-depth teacher training:
I completed four-year training with the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at Bangor University and a year at Oxford Mindfulness Centre where I received a Certificate of Competency to teach in the workplace. I am listed on the British Association for MBAs (following the Good Practice Guidelines).
I have been teaching mindfulness since 2013 to the general public and since 2018 in schools and in the workplace. I have benefited so much from my daily practice that I love sharing this invaluable approach to life and see my participants benefiting too.
