I’m Elaine Weatherley-Jones, a qualified Breathworks Mindfulness teacher and associate based in Sheffield:
I’ve been practising mindfulness and other meditation practices for 14 years. I qualified as a teacher of Mindfulness with Breathworks, a Community Interest Company (CIC) based in Manchester, UK and has completed the Foundation module of the MSc in Mindfulness Based Approaches with Bangor University. I’ve done further training in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy with the Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre and I engage in regular Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and clinical supervision. I have led and assisted in teaching Mindfulness 8-week courses in Sheffield, Manchester and Bangor. I am registered as a Mindfulness Teacher on the “Be Mindful” website – a site owned by the Mental Health Foundation where you can find courses led by approved teachers. I am a Chartered Psychologist and adhere to the British Psychological Society’s code of ethics.
I am currently extending my training so that I can, in the future, offer courses in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) for depression.
I practice according to to guidelines for good practice for teaching Mindfulness-based courses that are set out by the UK Network of Mindfulness-Based Teacher Trainers. Read the guidelines here Good_Practice_Guidelines Nov 2011
