Noelle Lim completed the teacher training in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) at Oxford Mindfulness Centre, under the Psychiatry Department of Oxford University, and is under training, supervised by Dr Maret Dymond-Bassett, a clinical psychologist and tutor at the university. The training is rigorous, requiring Noelle to follow the British Association for Mindfulness-based Approaches (BAMBA) Good Practice Guidelines, and Mindfulness-based Teaching Assessment Criteria (MBI-TAC) to ensure clients receive the best care.
In addition, she completed the .b Teacher program and is certified to teach 11-18 year olds under the UK Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP)—the gold standard provider of mindfulness training and materials for classrooms.
Starting earnestly with a daily practice and enrolling into the 8-Week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program by the University of Massachusetts Medical School, she continued with more training: (1) Search Inside Yourself Leadership (SIYLI) (2) Trauma Sensitive Mindfulness (David Treleaven) (3) Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) for depression (Beck Institute).
Attending a class by Professor Ruth Baer at Oxford sparked her interest in research. She would love to collaborate with universities to study the efficacy of mindfulness programs and the effectiveness of online interventions.
Outside teaching mindfulness, Noelle is a presenter at BFM 89.9 the business radio station and a career coach at Asia School of Business (by BNM and MIT Sloan) in Kuala Lumpur. She is a Fellow of the Eisenhower Fellowships, and a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), and worked in the financial services industry, and in Malaysia and Singapore. She holds the HRDF-trainer certificate.
