Train to teach mindfulness with the NHS-based Sussex Mindfulness Centre 

Train to teach Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) with the Sussex Mindfulness Centre. You'll be learning at one of the leading mindfulness centres in the UK and one of the few mindfulness teacher training and research centres embedded in the NHS.

The teacher training is open to everybody whether or not you have a clinical background. And if you work in the NHS there are opportunities to apply for NHS Trust funded places. 

Alternatively we offer training in delivering Adapted Mindfulness-Based Interventions for people who wish to teach adapted mindfulness based approaches safely and effectively, but who don't need to complete the extensive training required to deliver Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. 

These two NHS-based training courses are part-time and run from February to December 2023. Please note, we have extended the deadline for applications to 5 December 2022.
