Who is my Tutor?

Lesley Kidd MSc, a psychotherapist with over 20 years’ experience, I began studying mindfulness and MBSR formally in 2016. Personally, I wanted to improve my own balance, concentration and calm, I had encountered meditation via years of yoga practice, and I wanted to bring the benefits of mindfulness to counselling.

I live and work in France.
