Jane has extensive experience working in the field of organisational and personal development, delivering individual coaching and workshops for global corporations and NHS Trusts.
Her academic background includes an honours degree in music, a post-graduate diploma in education and further studies in psychology, psychotherapy and coaching. In September 2014 Jane completed her dissertation, the final piece of work required for the MSc in Mindfulness-based approaches in the School of Psychology at Bangor University. She undertook her mindfulness teacher training in that context.
Mindfulness is integral to Jane’s life and work and she is passionate about bringing the benefits of it to individuals and into the workplace. She teaches the MBSR program in a group and 1-1 format and has developed a suite of workshops for the workplace which emphasize mindfulness as an agent for change. Her approach to coaching is informed by and based on mindfulness. Jane has a particular interest in interpersonal mindfulness, particularly the innovative and structured meditation practice of Insight Dialogue (ID) developed by Dr. Gregory Kramer. She was a member of the first cohort of mindfulness teachers to complete the Interpersonal Mindfulness (IM) teacher training programme in Virginia, USA in 2013.
Jane has been invited to speak at numerous conferences including the 2013 BACP practitioners’ conference where she was one of the keynote speakers. She has a long-standing daily mindfulness practice, is committed to ongoing silent and ID retreat practice and is deeply appreciative of the benefits of personal and interpersonal meditation in her everyday life.
