Professional Workshops and Therapists Retreat

Malcolm provides workshops for professionals interested in mindfulness, compassion and Buddhist psychology.

Target groups
The workshops and retreats are provided for therapists (e.g. counselors, nurses, psychologists, psychiatrists, GPs, social workers, occupational therapists or other mental health professionals or psychotherapy practitioners). Workshops can be tailored to beginners or advanced practitioners.

Workshop aims

  • To provide an introduction to mindfulness and related practices such as compassion and their therapeutic uses.
  • To enhance the skills and understanding of therapists who already use these skills as part of their therapeutic repertoire.
  • To provide clarity about the contextual basis of mindfulness and related practices by highlighting Buddhist psychology/philosophy.
  • To provide exercises and guidelines for using mindfulness and related practices with specific clinical presentations in group and individual modalities.

The short retreats provide an opportunity for personal practice under qualified guidance.
