Fiona Montgomery

Since discovering mindfulness in 2015, I have meditated every day and am grateful for the joy and contentment it has brought me, enhancing daily life and helping me develop greater resilience in dealing with difficulties

I have been practicing yoga and meditation for many years. Keen to share their benefits with others, I completed an 18-month Diploma in Teaching Mindfulness-Based Interventions in 2017 at the Mindfulness Centre for Professional Training, in Dublin.

I follow the good practice guidelines developed by the UK Network of Mindfulness Teachers for teaching mindfulness based courses.

I have three teenage children and previously qualified as an accountant.

I teach an eight-week mindfulness based stress reduction course, based on the teachings of Jon Kabat-Zinn. The course includes:

  • 8 x 2 hour sessions discovering mindfulness meditation – learning and practice
  • Included is a full day retreat 10am to 4pm in a beautiful countryside location
  • Practice CDs and teaching notes
  • Daily home practise (carried out by students)
  • Cost of each 8 week course £250.00 with early bird discount to £220
  • New dates coming soon

I am also offering a monthly Meet to Meditate class for people who would like a supportive group to practice with. Meditation practices will last between 15 and 30 minutes and will include: the body scan, mindful movement, sitting meditation.

This support group runs 4.15-5.15pm on:

  • 28th July
  • 18th August
  • 15th September
  • 13th October
  • 10th November
  • 15th December

My teachers say:

Fiona has engaged fully with all aspects of this training course. She is committed to her own daily mindfulness practice, which is essential in a mindfulness teacher. This commitment to her practice, to learning the theoretical underpinnings of MBSR and to deeply experiencing the MBSR course from the inside out have contributed to her capacity to truly embody the qualities of a good mindfulness teacher.

We are delighted that Fiona chose our course. Her contribution to her group and to our training has been significant. We are very happy that she is now offering MBSR to the public and feel that those who experience her teaching will be taught in the true spirit of mindfulness.

And here's what some of my students have said:

Karen MBSR Apr 2017 “A year ago I was burnt out and probably couldn’t have done a course like this but Fiona gently eased me into the sessions. I have discovered so much about my body and my mind. Thank you Fiona”

David Sept MBSR 2017 “The course has greatly deepened my understanding of mindfulness and MBSR. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in mindfulness, without reservation.

Colette Oct 2017 MBSR “Doing the course with Fiona has really helped me to focus on approaching daily life in a more mindful way that has resulted in me experiencing a new sense of calmness and contentment in all aspects of my life.”

Ciara Feb 2018 MBSR “Thank you for a wonderful experience. Your warmth and approachableness created a nourishing environment in which to learn.”
