Claudia is a translator, interpreter, tour guide and planner, teacher of foreign languages in Italy and Italian for foreigners elsewhere, with a passion for cinema, travel and Argentine tango. She has lived in several places in Italy and abroad (UK, Belgium, USA, Luxembourg). As she is a trained translator and interpreter, she speaks Italian, English and French fluently.
A few years ago she stumbled upon Mindfulness and she had an immediate insight: in very little time she decided to start the teacher training pathway with the School of Medicine at the University of Massachusetts, where Jon Kabat-Zinn founded the Center for Mindfulness and designed the now renowned MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) Protocol.
She has completed two courses of Mindfulness for Children and Adolescents, with Mindful Schools (2015) and Amy Saltzman (2017) and one on Mindful Eating (2015) with Jan Chozen Bays. She has a particular interest in Self-Compassion as studied by Kristin Neff and in Insight Dialogue, i.e. Mindfulness applied to social relations and communication. In 2017 she met John Niland and immediately joined his Self-Worth Safari, finding a lot of common ground with her interest in self-care and self-compassion, and has become one of the first licensees, integrating it in her Mindfulness-based activities (MBSR Protocol cycles, Education and Corporate workshops and courses, retreats in nature, online sessions, special courses for caregivers, etc.).
