Francesca trained under the direction of Dr. Jackie Gardner-Nix
The Mindfulness-Based Chronic Pain Management (MBCPM™) program was developed and trademarked by Dr. Jackie Gardner-Nix with the goal of teaching people who live with chronic pain how to ease their pain and suffering while improving their quality of life.
"Starting at St Michael’s Hospital’s Pain Clinic as a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course in 2002, as created by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre, the MBCPM™ program evolved into a more customized, “Trauma-Informed” curriculum for chronic pain. The programs now offer progressive levels for the patients/clients, which are designed to build the participant’s skills and knowledge from basic mindfulness to a more sustained mindfulness and meditation practice, embracing a higher level of personal exploration.

Attendees learn the principles of mindfulness, the importance of living in the moment, and the power of “now”, and how these relate to suffering less pain and stress, and improve resilience and healing. Mindfulness assists in remaining calmer, more  productive, and pain-controlled despite the challenges of everyday life, such as when interacting with family, friends, colleagues, employers and insurers. This can change suffering from pain, stress, and health conditions in a very positive way.  Life skills are enhanced in this course.  Participants can also have a positive effect on those with whom they live and work, as they continue their mindfulness practice."
