• Meet the Mindful Academy International Team

    I have put together a dedicated team of experienced International Mindfulness MBSR Meditation Teachers to support your Mindfulness teacher training pathways. 

    Together we will help you build confidence quickly and easily with the help of individual coaching, feedback, personal and professional development. Supervision and Mentoring is also included both before you arrive on your course, and ongoing as a graduate.

    If you have any questions, or would like to discuss if our courses meet your vision of teaching Mindfulness, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Kind regards


    Kathy Ward.
