Glenn has been a mindfulness meditation practitioner for over 25 years. Daily personal practice is supported by regular retreat attendance and ongoing study of meditative and contemplative traditions.
As a senior mental health professional within the NHS, the delivery of mindfulness and meditation practice skills form a core part of the therapeutic intervention with clients in recovery from mental illness. Glenn's vocational path over the past 20 years has led him to work with the extremes of human emotion, vulnerability and complexity. Meditation and mindfulness practice have been fundamental in supporting him to carry out this role.
Mindfulness has been found to be effective in managing stress, depression, anxiety and pain. However it is important to note that we do not offer the one day mindfulness course as a 'clinical intervention', but rather as an aid to promote everyday health, well-being and in supporting recovery. The course may not be suitable for people who are currently experiencing an episode of severe depression, psychosis or other clinically diagnosed severe and enduring psychiatric disorder. If you are unsure always consult your G.P. or mental health professional.
