“I sometimes feel quite isolated as a Mindfulness teacher.  Peer Supervision gives me a great opportunity to meet other teachers, practice together, share my celebrations and concerns and learn from a wide community of peers.  Having Karen there to give us clear advise and guidance makes this a really valuable and deeply beneficial experience.” Peer Supervision participant.
Karen Atkinson, Director of MindfulnessUK is a Bangor trained Supervisor and will be facilitating.  The session will cover the following:
  • Opportunity to share your experiences and best practice.
  • Developing knowledge and understanding of the UK Good Practice Guidelines for Mindfulness Teachers, including updates and guidance on retreats.
  • Recent research and articles.
  • Continuous Professional Development Opportunities.
  • The benefits of being part of an Alumni with MindfulnessUK.
Peer supervision is a fantastic opportunity to get together with your peers so you can exchange knowledge and experience and explore any issues and positive findings you have encountered from your teaching so far.
