Lokadhi's qualifications and training
I have extensive theoretical and experiential training and am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP) whose ethical and professional codes I observe.
I hold postgraduate diplomas in mindfulness-based approaches, for which I studied for five years, and in psychosynthesis counselling - an integrative modality that draws on our innate creativity and the imagination. I am registered with the UK Network of Mindfulness Teachers and The Mindfulness Network which uphold the ethical and professional standards in the field. I am also trained in the Breathworks mindfulness approach to managing chronic pain and illness.
In recent years our understanding of the role played by brain and body in relation to emotional problems has increased dramatically. To keep my professional approach fresh, and to support the intuitive development of my work within a clear theoretical framework, I'm committed to lifelong learning - attending frequent continuing professional development (CPD) courses and retreats, in line with, and beyond, the requirements of the professional bodies of which I am a member.
I am in regular supervision with both BACP registered and psychosynthesis-trained practitioners and mindfulness supervisors. I am trained as a mindfulness supervisor through the Centre of Mindfulness Research and Practice (CMRP), world-leading centre of excellence in this field, and am conversant with the NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) and Bangor/Oxford/Exeter good practice guidelines for the teaching of mindfulness-based approaches.
