Barbara Hussong is a Biodynamic Psychotherapist (UKCP reg.) and has been working with individuals presenting with a wide range of difficulties since 2000 in Maidstone and specialises in using one-to-one mindfulness informed approaches in clinical settings.
She trained as a mindfulness-based teacher through Bangor University in 2005/6 and has been teaching 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction / Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBSR/MBCT) courses to the general public in Kent since 2006 in group settings and to individuals face-to-face and as a distance learning course. She also provides introductions to mindfulness for people with long-term mental illness.
In 2017 she completed the training in Mindfulness-Based Compassionate Living (MBCL) with Erik van den Brink and in MBCT-L (for life) and offers both courses in Kent.
She is included as a mindfulness teacher in the listing of British Association for Mindfulness-based Approaches and on the register of the Mental Health Foundation.
Since 2009 she has been engaged in supervising mindfulness teachers and offering mentoring for their mindfulness practice.
She has a special interest in expanding and deepening mindfulness practice beyond the 8-week course and so offers groups, practice days and retreats as on-going support and help in facing and working with life’s difficulties in greater awareness.
