Jan Haworth

Jan is a Certified Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher, and Founder.

Jan first came to mindfulness when undergoing cancer treatment. She was offered mindfulness to help her cope with the physical, emotional and psychological stress and pain that comes with a serious illness. Jan soon found the benefits of mindfulness extended way beyond simply a coping strategy, and found it so life changing that she was inspired to become a teacher and share mindfulness with others.

Since then, Jan has worked with staff in a range of organisations in the public and private sector, including various District Health Boards and corporate organisations.

Alongside this, she runs MBSR courses for the general public, and has a particular interest in working with people coping with illnesses.

Jan is a long time student of Iyengar yoga, holds a psychology degree and has extensive knowledge and qualifications in positive psychology, health coaching and preventive health. She also developed Life 2.0 – a group course that provides knowledge, skills and support to help people move forward after cancer treatment in a positive and productive way.
