Training on Mindfulness with Fiona Kennedy – Early Bird Discount Expires in 5 days

I would like to talk to you today about our 2 day course on MINDFULNESS presented in January 2016 by Dr Fiona Kennedy – a tutor of an outstanding quality with vast clinical experience, and my good friend of over 30 years.

Fiona has many years of clinical experience in both the mental health and learning disability fields. Fiona’s main orientation for many years has been Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). She was a Board Member/Trustee for the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP) and from 2015 holds a BABCP Fellowship. Amongst many other research projects she has studied dissociation after trauma that led to a new theoretical model and scale, as well as innovative new treatments. The creation of an effective treatment service for self-harming, suicidal, ‘revolving door’ inpatients was quoted as an example of national excellence by the UK government’s National Audit Office in its House of Commons report ‘Safer Patient Services’ 2005. She has presented her research at many national and international conferences and received an award for clinical excellence from BUPA. She is an editor and co-author of ‘Cognitive Behavioural Approaches to the Understanding and Treatment of Dissociation’. With her deep knowledge of the subject and outstanding leadership qualities Dr Fiona Kennedy is a truly inspirational tutor.

Fiona’s life experiences extensively complement and enhance her teaching. For many years she and her husband, Dr Dave Pearson, went to India designing and delivering training to enable Indian volunteers to mentor rescued street and disadvantaged children (pro bono). She practices yoga, mindfulness and meditation herself and never shies away from new challenges – from hiking to diving and roof-top walking in different parts of the world.

Watch a NEW VIDEO OF MY INTERVIEW WITH FIONA about her take on Mindfulness, her personal experience of it and details of her forthcoming course:

Fiona has been delivering training courses for SDS for over 5 years and her events ALWAYS command the most outstanding feedback:
“Superb – brilliant presentation, fascinating demonstrations, lots of practical stuff to use right away.” – D.R., Therapist
“Very good speaker and lots of interesting case studies. Looking forward to trying the techniques taught.” – E.L. Brain Injury Care Manager/OT

Come and join Dr Kennedy on this 2-day training on Mindfulness.

-        It will not be repeated in 2016.
-        If you cannot attend in person – join it via our interactive webcast.

Hope to see you there.

Kind regards
