I began formal training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction 4 years ago having trained with Helen Byrne (www.mindfulness.ie) Psychologist and Mindfulness Teacher in 2012.

In 2013 I completed in-depth training in Practicum Professional MBSR Teacher Training with Saki Santerolli and Florence Meleo Meyer, Senior Teachers at University of Massachusetts Medical School (www.umassmed.edu/cfm)

I have also trained with Anne Twohig founder of the Centre for Mindfulness Ireland (www.cfmi.ie), Anne has been involved in the growth and expansion of Mindfulness in Ireland over the past 10 years. Anne Twohig and her teaching team are committed to upholding the high standards set and lived by Jon Kabat-Zinn & teachers and staff at CFM UMass Medical School.

In 2015 I completed further training with the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society, University of Massachusetts, Medical School, successfully completing their Teacher Development Intensive Training Programme. This Programme was facilitated by Senior Teachers at University of Mass, Carolyn West, Anne Twohig and Florence Meleo Meyer. (The Oasis Institute, CFM).
