Dr Adele StewartRegistered
Dr Adele Stewart MBBS FRACGP has been a GP for over 25 years in the Illawarra. Adele is registered to provide focussed psychological strategies. She trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy under Dr Russ Harris and offers ACT therapy to a handful of patients per week. She did her first 10 day silent meditation retreat in 1987 and in the last 10 years has done yearly retreats and has been increasingly absorbed in yoga, qigong and mindfulness meditation practices. She offers a down to earth, engaging and compassionate attitude to teaching mindfulness. Adele trained with Openground in 2016 and has been teaching MBSR courses at her practice on Saturday afternoons since 2017. These have been very well received by patients, staff, visitors and other health professionals. She finds the MBSR courses as both a participant and teacher increase the meaning and richness of daily life as well as building a wonderful sense of connection.
Registered teachers have taught at least two rounds of the program and have completed basic requirements of the Level I and Level II MTI training pathway, but are not yet certified.
Certified teachers are given certification when they have taught many rounds of the course, attended several silent retreats and their teaching has been rigorously assessed using video/audio submissions.
