Dr Julia Forster is a Certified Mindfulness Practitioner with a doctor’s degree in educational psychology. She started her career in mental health nursing during which time she became very interested in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as an empowering tool for those with anxiety, depression and eating disorders. Moving on to teach nurses and then into further education and teacher training, Julia’s interest in CBT extended to consider how such approaches could be adapted to support professionals in managing the emotional complexities of their roles. In 2013 Julia completed a Ph.D. at Southampton University investigating the impact of a CBT toolkit for supporting trainee teachers to more effectively manage challenging student behaviour. Julia has a deep passion for exploring how mindfulness can be used to support people in their efforts to enhance their sense of happiness and wellbeing.

Dorset Mindfulness Centre Sue

I completed the 8-Week MBSR mindfulness course in September 2015 and was left with the benefits of feeling healthier and happier. After only 3 weeks of attending the mindfulness course I achieved a lower blood pressure than I have had in a long time despite the perils that were going on in my personal life at the time. With the new insights I gained on the course I was able to look at things in a new light and gain the strength not to buckle under the pressure. In summary, I feel healthier and happier, have more energy but at the same time feel more connected with the environment and the people I share it with” – Sue Robathan, Registered nurse & exercise specialist.
