Ten years ago when I was looking for a therapist to facilitate change in my life I found Dr Collard. Her tools include communication skills, conventional behavioural therapy through to meditation and mindfulness. With practise and her watchful coaching I feel comfortable using new skills to tackle current day problems.
As I am a diabetic, excess adrenalin can have adverse effects on my blood sugar levels. I found the information on how our minds control the chemicals our bodies produce fascinating. I found the facilitator excellent. She was non-threatening and I felt she was on my side. She was serious but had a sense of fun.

Dr Patricia Collard first introduced me to Mindfulness in April 2009, [and] being Mindful has changed my life for the better in immeasurable ways and I continue to practice with her. I highly recommend Patricia as a trainer in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy.

Dr Collard is someone whom I have worked with for a number of years. She is not only well trained and learned in a variety of approaches, but is someone who is always helpful and a joy to work with. Her intelligence, knowledge and understanding together with her personable approach makes her someone anyone would find useful to work with. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I have known Dr Patrizia Collard as a colleague since September 2004. During the last 6 years, I have acquired a deep knowledge of her clinical and research work. Apart from her ability to deliver the most exciting, interesting and thought-provoking workshops, Patrizia is also an experienced lecturer and prolific researcher. Her lucid and succinct descriptions of her work and the persuasiveness of her arguments can be observed in her papers and book chapters. Finally, as I believe that Patrizia is a highly reflective, ‘mindful’ practitioner and experienced researcher and lecturer, I therefore strongly recommend her to you.

Dr Patrizia Collard is a keen and resourceful figure in the Mindfulness world, using initiative and creativity to enable significant mindfulness seminars to take place and contributing in the arena of discussion and increasing scientific research in this field. Patrizia is also a joy to work with and I value her contributions.
