Compassion Focused Therapy | Compassionately Priced

Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) is an exciting and hopeful therapy that can often be totally life changing.

CFT can be thought of as 'Physio for the Mind' that incorporates the best of the old with the best of the new.

OLD = timeless,  tried and tested practices including mindfulness, breath training, and imagery practices which have helped fellow human beings and our human ancestors for thousands of years.

NEW = applied understanding of the latest neuroscience, evidence based practice and scientifically informed. CFT is founded on an evolutionary understanding of what it means to be human, with a difficult human mind and teaches people how to become aware of the different ways their older brain (reptile, mammal and primate) and newer brain (human) interact. CFT can teach you how to use your newer brain (also referred to as our 'awareness') to manage our older brain as well as some very old instinctual responses of fight / flight or freeze. Self (and other) compassion is a totally teachable skill that when practiced can transform individual lives, organizations, families and our world. 

Compassion Focused Therapy, Compassion Focused Supervision and Compassion Focused Training is offered through Encrypted (256 AEG) Video Conferencing Software. 

Having worked at Imperial College as a Senior Student Counselor and then CBT Therapist for over 3 years, as well as in the NHS in IAPT services, and in private practice, I developed expertise in applying CFT in a time limited manner that consisted of a maximum of 4-8 sessions. I was and am continually astonished by the power of Compassion and how learning to 'be on one's own side' can change one's life in a very short period of time. 

In addition to being a CFT Therapist, Supervisor and Trainer, I am also personally committed to Compassion practices. and aim to apply the principles and practices of CFT in my personal and professional life day by day. I remain ever grateful for having found the road to self (and other) compassion. My life has personally and professionally been changed forever by CFT. 

I am committed to helping you learn to become your most compassionate version of yourself in as timely a manner as possible.
