Check out my research, published in some of the world's leading journals

Publishing my 2003 honours research made me one of the early pioneers in mindfulness research.

In the decades since, I have published in some of the world’s leading academic journals, including the British Medical Journal (BMJ), Clinical Psychology Review and Mindfulness.
