Supervision is essential for anyone teaching Mindfulness-Based Approaches and is necessary to fulfil the 'Good Practice Guidelines' laid out by the UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Training Organisations http://mindfulnessteachersuk.org.uk.
What happens in mindfulness supervision?
Supervision is there to guide and support your development and practice as a teacher. In supervision we will be looking at how your teaching practice, personal mindfulness practice and life interact, and work together to improve your teaching practice and deepen your personal mindfulness practice. All my mindfulness supervision is done in a 'mindfulness container' of non-judgemental, respectful exploration.
Mindfulness teacher mentoring for new teachers
If you're a new or training mindfulness teacher, it can be very beneficial to sit in and co-teach on courses with an experienced teacher. You can then receive direct feedback and mentoring on your teaching practice, as well as see what a mindfulness classroom is like. I am trained to offer mentoring for new teachers, please contact me to discuss. The cost is the same as supervision, £40ph in either 30, 45 or 60 minute sessions.
Personal practice mentoring - for anyone who has completed a course and is looking for guidance and support
Personal practice mentoring can be very helpful to take your practice deeper and support you to continue. Unlike supervision, it is purely focused on your practice with no reference to professional context.
