Prior to studying psychology I was a physiotherapist in private practice. I also hold qualifications as an adult and adolescent mindfulness teacher. My PhD investigated the effectiveness of two adolescent mindfulness programmes in secondary schools as trandiagnostic prevention programmes. We also developed a new measure of mindfulness for early adolescents.
