About Mindfulness Hampshire

Ali Lambie started Mindfulness Hampshire in 2011 when she was part way through taking a master’s degree in Teaching Mindfulness-Based Courses with Bangor University. A long-time counsellor, she was working in the NHS at the time as Manager of Southampton’s Primary Care Counselling Service and first began teaching Mindfulness to people who’d received counselling within the service and wanted to learn mindfulness to support them in the longer term. This swiftly led to offering courses privately to members of the public and so Mindfulness Hampshire came into being.

In time, Ali gradually increased her independent mindfulness work and left the NHS behind in 2014. Since, she has been offering a whole range of mindfulness events to the general public, to GPs, therapists and within workplace settings since that time.

In 2013, Ali came across the work of Dr Chris Germer and Dr Kristin Neff in a training known as Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC). This powerful training has become a key offering of Mindfulness Hampshire. Watch a short video of Ali talking about MSC here or listen to a longer interview of Ali talking about mindfulness and self-compassion here and giving a podcast interview all about Mindful Self-Compassion here.
