Alison Purnell As a Breathworks Associate and Senior Trainer, I am involved with the Breathworks Mindfulness Teacher Training programs and offer Practice Course Supervision for trainees and ongoing supervision to our accredited teachers. I'm also a Senior Counsellor for the Dorset Community Pain Service (DHUFT) where I lead Breathworks Mindfulness for Health programs for people living with chronic pain conditions. I enjoy my work, finding great encouragement in the transformative power of Mindfulness and Self-Compassion to reduce suffering, enabling real qualitative changes to take root and flourish. Living with my family in Dorset; my daily personal mindfulness practice is grounded in the rich complexity of everyday life. My commitment to living practice is supported by ongoing supervision, CPD and regular meditation retreats. I adhere to the Good Practice Guidance for Mindfulness Teachers (2011).
