Her academic background includes an honours degree in music, a post-graduate diploma in education and further studies in psychology, psychotherapy and coaching. She is currently in her thesis write-up year for the MA in Mindfulness-based approaches in the School of Psychology at Bangor University and has undertaken 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 the workplace. She teaches the MBSR programme in group and 1-1 formats and has developed a suite of workshops for the workplace that emphasize the development of mindfulness as an agent for change.
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 has completed an Interpersonal Mindfulness Training for MBSR teachers, has attended numerous ID retreats and is one of a core group of facilitators dedicated to bringing this relational practice to the UK.
Jane has a strong mindfulness practice, is committed to ongoing silent and ID retreat practice, and is deeply appreciative of the benefits of meditation in her everyday life.
