Lea is a mindfulness teacher, specialising in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy. Currently completing advanced supervision as a psychotherapist, she works in private practice specialising in Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy.

With a Bachelor of Social Sciences in Psychology from Waikato University, Lea has worked as a Lifeline counsellor, and also as a Bereavement Counsellor at Nurse Maude hospice. As a certified Buddhist Chaplain, she also assists the Spiritual Care Team, supporting the terminally ill and co-facilitating the Grief Support Group.

Lea has a long personal meditation practice and regularly attends retreats in NZ, India and Nepal. Aware that meditation and mindfulness is a key to a healthy body and mind, she is passionate for others to experience the benefits of mindfulness practice and cognitive-behavioural skills training.

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.
