Bella Glover is originally from the UK and is a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and Mindfulness teacher. In the UK she studied an MSc in Psychology and another in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Practising Mindfulness meditation herself for over 15 years, Bella is fascinated by the psychology and science of Mindfulness and how it is being applied in today’s society.
Bella has taught Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy in the UK to people with recurrent depression for the National Health Service and now runs “beingwell” here in Zürich which offers Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, as well as Mindfulness workshops and courses. Bella encourages people to become curious about their own minds, and talks about the relationship between Mindfulness and thoughts. You can learn more about her on her website.
During TEDxYouth@Adliswil, Bella will speak about her experiences with snowboarding for the first time, and compare it to her research in the practice of mindfulness. Bella will encourage the audience to look within themselves when distracted to remain focused, rather than being overcome by stress.
