BA Philosophy
MSc Psychology
PGDip Philosophical Counselling
Certificate ACT Therapy
Founder @ mindowl.org

Hello, I'm Filipe

Through my personal experiences, I have always held a strong interest in human suffering and satisfaction; this greatly influenced my career path. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy before completing a master’s degree in psychology at Regent’s University London.

I then completed a postgraduate diploma in philosophical counselling before being trained in ACT(Acceptance and commitment therapy).

I've spent the last seven years studying the encounter of meditative practices with modern psychology. I've found that besides the known benefits meditation can bring to our lives, such as reduced stress and anxiety, improved quality of sleep, decreased blood pressure; the greatest benefit of meditation is the possibility to feel at peace, despite the external circumstances of our lives.

I'm a member of the British Psychological Society

Hello, I'm Fred

 I graduated from Goldsmiths, University of London with a degree in English, focusing particularly on modern fiction.

Since then, I have worked largely as a freelance writer for publications including NME, Resident Advisor, and The Quietus. In addition to my culture journalism, I have produced digital marketing copy, and more recently honed my knowledge of a range of mindfulness-based subjects, allowing me to channel my interest in mental and physical health and inform others about the benefits of meditation and mindful activity.
