Why I developed the “Integrating Mindfulness & Compassion In Professional Practice” Course…

Karen’s journey into Mindfulness began in her early twenties after having completed a nursing degree and working alongside psychologists she specialised in teaching Mindfulness and Compassion to patients suffering with chronic pain, trauma and distress. For several years Karen had witnessed the growing need for Mindfulness and Compassion in our society and in tandem with that the rise in people offering Mindfulness to vulnerable people. Karen sat with her concerns that many people delivering Mindfulness were untrained and did not have the skills or expertise to asses and teach Mindfulness competently, safely and appropriately and then decided she needed to do something to change this. So, she drew on her years of experience and sat down to write and develop a suitable and unique course that addressed this situation and thus “Integrating Mindfulness and Compassion in Professional Practise” was born.
