I am Sara Dennis, a qualified Breathworks Mindfulness teacher, and HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist based in Sheffield. I developed an interest in mindfulness in relation to working with people with long-term physical health problems and associated psychological distress. I have been practicing mindfulness in my daily life for over four years. I attended the Mindfulness for Stress Course initially as a participant, as is standard for people wanting to train to teach. I have gone on to train as a teacher of mindfulness with Breathworks. I am delighted to be joining Elaine as a teacher with Mindfulness in Sheffield. I look forward to meeting and working with you as course participants.
I have co-lead and run courses in Mindfulness for Stress and Mindfulness for Health in Sheffield and Chesterfield. It continues to be both a privilege and a pleasure to support people in finding out for themselves the new perspectives, on life, stress and health which mindfulness practice can bring.
All accredited mindfulness teachers have a requirement to undertake regular personal practice of mindfulness; to attend continuing professional development events in order to keep their practice up to date and in line with current research in the field; and to have regular clinical supervision. I adhere to these principles of good practice. In addition I am a member of the British Psychological Society, and adhere to the professional practice guidelines of the Society.
