About me

Working with colleagues to develop and promote so-called "contextual" CBT therapies: - evidence-based, Mindfulness, Compassion & Acceptance approaches which enhance psychological flexibility, enabling clients to live life with increasing meaning and purpose. This 'enabling' is the primary focus of the work; though, as a secondary gain, people with 'chronic' conditions often experience a remarkable reduction in symptoms. Clients learn mindfulness, acceptance and self-compassion skills, they work to identify their true meaning and purpose. Then they set and engage with goals which move them in that direction.

Treatments are offered via individual ACT psychotherapy, coaching, mentoring or supervision. Telephone, email and Skype consultations are offered. Group work courses: MBCT for depression prevention & ACT based groups for anxiety and anger may suit some clients better.
