About your teacher
Jess Bigogno qualified as a psychologist in her home city of London in 1996. She then went on to work in London in the stressful world of marketing and business for several years before returning to psychology and retraining as a psychotherapist. Having practiced Mindfulness herself for some time, she realised how powerful the therapeutic benefits were and began incorporating it into her therapy with fantastic results. Seeing how life changing it could be for so many people, she decided to further her training as a mindfulness teacher, and launched group courses for private individuals and businesses centred around the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) programmes. She now lives in Barcelona where she continues to meditate every day and runs a psychotherapy practice and Mindfulness teaching centre. Jess is also a qualified NLP practitioner.
