This month we will be joined by Dr Sarah Francis, who will be looking into mindfulness and meditation.

Dr Sarah Francis is a registered psychologist offering both online and in-person therapy through the Melbourne Mindfulness Institute. Sarah has had a personal meditation practice for over 25 years, starting when she was managing her breast cancer treatment. Sarah has been delivering MiCBT group programs since 2009 both online and face-to-face and with clients individually in her private practice.

Sarah became interested in applying meditation to her clinical work and trained in Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy with its developer, Dr Bruno Cayoun. Sarah subsequently worked with Dr Cayoun in the dissemination of MiCBT to clinicians and is co-author of the Clinicians Handbook of MiCBT published in 2019. Sarah conducted a randomised controlled trial that demonstrated the effectiveness of MiCBT with a range of different psychological conditions and two peer-reviewed articles describe this work.
