I started my meditation and mindfulness practice in 2008 within the Buddhist meditation tradition and continue to receive meditation instruction from world renowned meditation teachers and their senior students.  Under the guidance of my main teacher, I set up a not-for-profit organisation in 2013 where I continue to provide instruction in meditation for my local community.  I maintain and deepen my personal practice by applying the instructions in daily life and within retreat contexts.

Cesare Saguato Counsellor, Psychotherapist, Mindfulness Teacher, Clinical Supervisor, Medway, Kent, UK

Due to having received much personal benefit through the practice of mindfulness, I wanted to share those benefits with others. I began exploring the secular application of mindfulness by completing an eight week course with the Centre for Mindful Living, before going on to complete a Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy Teacher Training Retreat with the Oxford Mindfulness Centre, University of Oxford. Combining my meditation experience with this training and the work I have done in the fields of education, training and therapy, I began delivering mindfulness courses and mental health workshops in the public, private and third sectors. 

I feel passionate about having the opportunity to share the many benefits of mindfulness with others and approach doing so with a sense of responsibility to transmit the authentic methods I have been taught to the best of my ability, while continuing to deepen my own personal practice and application of mindfulness in my own life.

I am listed on the British Association for Mindfulness-based Approaches (BAMBA), a regulated directory of training organisations and teachers who adhere to the BAMBA Good Practice Guidelines.  The good practice guidelines requires teachers to be suitably trained, committed to continuous professional development, hold appropriate insurance and receive supervision for their teaching.

I currently teach private and public courses as well as run training and development courses for organisations including NHS Primary Care staff via the Tenterden Mindfulness Group and am a co-founder of and Mindful Running Coach at RUN:ZEN. I am also a Mindfulness Supervisor, having trained through the Mindfulness Network and a Mindfulness Mentor.

 

In addition to this I work as an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor in private practice and have a background in teenage and adult education (PGCE) as well as in training, team leadership, management and substance misuse counselling as a contractor within HM's Prisons.
