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-

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.
