achieving complete mastery. The programs objective is to
provide you with the understanding and skills to practice
mindfulness both personally and as a therapist. This pro-
gram will allow you to be able to present mindfulness to your clients in a language that makes its relevance and
application of mindfulness immediately obvious. Through
your own practice and the conversations with your peers,
you will realise the dilemmas that your clients will experi-
ence in implementing their mindfulness practice. The
coaching that will follow will provide you with an insight
into the way I work with these dilemmas with my clients. Mindfulness and Clinical Practice Days

tial and theoretical process which will synthesise over 11
years of work with clients. The client cases to be covered
