ACCREDITED TEACHER TRAINING

The Devon School Of Mindfulness is a mindfulness teacher training school run by trainers Madeleine Agnew and Nick Cooke. The 5 day accredited teacher training course is held at the beautiful ‘Rosemoor Gardens‘ in Great Torrington, North Devon.

After completing this course graduates will be qualified to teach mindfulness either one to one, in groups and within organisations.

The schools main aims are to:

  • Provide accessible and affordable attendance based mindfulness teacher training
  • Monitor all student’s evaluation of training content and delivery and apply a policy of continuous improvement in order to maintain the highest possible standards
  • Uphold high ethical standards of its tutors, students and graduates
  • Maintain on-going support for students and graduates
  • Make mindfulness available to as many people as possible in order to meet ever increasing needs.

Trainers

Madeleine Agnew and Nick Cooke are qualified and experienced wellbeing professionals who have specialist training in mindfulness meditation, including the ‘Mindfulness Now’ programme which integrates key elements of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). They bring the art and science of mindfulness meditation together with evidence based healing and wellbeing programmes.

The Mindfulness Now Programme

The Mindfulness Now programme offers an integrated / eclectic approach to mindfulness teaching and aims to equip teachers to work with individuals and groups with many requirements including helping with physical and emotional pain, stress and anxiety, as well as building emotional resilience. After completion of the course, successful graduates are offered the opportunity to join the network of Mindfulness Now licensed and accredited teachers.

Nick Cooke developed the Mindfulness Now programme after his own experience of using mindfulness to help him with his recovery and rehabilitation, including management of pain, following two serious illnesses. He already had considerable experience of learning and practicing mindfulness and, as a therapist, it’s something which for many years he has taught clients to practice.

Mindfulness Now offers a psycho-educational fusion of mindfulness-based approaches, including the evidence-based Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). The latter, developed by Professor Mark Williams and colleagues at the University of Oxford, offers a breakthrough in the treatment of depression, anxiety and emotional trauma, and is recommended by NICE as a treatment of choice for depression.

In 1979 Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn and colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre – Stress Reduction Clinic developed a psycho-educational programme called Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) which provides an integration of mindfulness meditation with proven psychotherapeutic approaches into an accessible and evidence-based approach which has been taught worldwide.

Mindfulness Now accredited teachers offer individual 1-to-1, as well as group sessions in mindfulness-based practices.

As well as teaching mindfulness meditation, programmes are offered for stress reduction, anxiety, panic attacks, emotional trauma and pain control, including the 8 weeks Mindfulness Now programme.

The Devon School Of Mindfulness is affiliated with The UK College Of Mindfulness Meditation.
