Profile Summary

Rachel is a certified mindfulness teacher and has been trained with Bangor University in the UK, and UCD (University College Dublin), on their Masters Programme in Mindfulness Based Interventions. Rachel’s background is in Occupational Therapy. She has worked in various sectors for the past 12 years, including disability, paediatrics, equine assisted therapy, and has specialised in the area of mental health. Rachel works as a Senior Clinician, in a transdisciplinary role for a primary care mental health service. Rachel’s personal journey with mindfulness started in 2009 when she completed her first course in Buddhist meditation, drawn to it out of curiosity. Since this time, and in particular in the past 5 years, her practice and commitment to mindfulness has gradually deepened through participation on various courses, trainings and silent retreats. Rachel takes great joy in teaching mindfulness as it is a way that she can continue to learn and grow-developing more insights into how to live with more awareness, kindness and courage. She believes that a sense of humour and fun has an important place in this intimate and self-revealing practice. She also believes in teaching that being mindful doesn’t mean we need to change who we are, and that we don’t need to be a certain type of person to discover how practicing mindfulness might help us. Rachel is deeply committed to facilitating participants to find their own unique relationship with mindfulness, staying curious and open to what this may be. Rachel teaches mindfulness programmes to health care staff, young people, and to the general public. She organises mindfulness workshops and retreats in Dublin, Poland, and on line. In addition, she offers introductory courses in mindfulness to community groups, businesses and public sector organisations and offers one-to-one mindfulness training on request. She is a member of, and adheres to the standards set down by, the Mindfulness Teachers Association of Ireland, including cultivating a daily personal practice, working with a trained Mindfulness Supervisor and regular attendance at mindfulness trainings and residential retreats
