Mal Huxter

Malcolm Huxter is a clinical psychologist and meditation trainer.

He has been teaching mindfulness and related practices such as loving kindness and compassion on retreats, courses, seminars and workshops to clinical populations, clinicians and the general pubic for over 25 years.

Mal originally learnt these practices as a Buddhist monk in Thailand in the late 1970’s. After being a monk he was a shiatsu therapist for 10 years until he gained psychology qualifications.

He has worked as a clinical psychologist, supervisor, coach and trainer in a variety of settings in rural and remote Australia, as well as in the UK.

Mal has written several mindfulness-based workbooks, published in psychology journals and magazines and had a book called “Healing the heart and mind with mindfulness. Ancient path, present moment” released with Routledge in February 2016.

He is a loving partner, proud dad of three adult sons and a doting granddad. He currently lives and has a private practice in Lismore, NSW.
