‘Trained mindful self compassion programme teacher’
I am privileged to have trained under Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer the founders of the MSC programme and The Centre for Mindful Self-Comassion and became one of the first cohort of european trained teachers in July 2014. I became eligable to teach the programme and completed supervision to achieve ‘trained mindful self-compassion teacher’ status and I am registered on the Healthcare professional directory for the Centre for Mindful Self Compassion.
I offer individual therapy in the High Peak in Derbyshire where I run a busy private practice in Chinley, Nr Buxton; a clinic at Sett Valley Medical Practice; and in Cheshire at Park Lane consulting rooms in Macclesfield, Priorslegh Medical centre,Poynton.
As a trained Mindful Self Compassion teacher, I now regularly teach the Mindful Self Compassion programme. I also run relaxation master classes, well-being workshops and seminars for corporate and community, and, offer a full well-being service to corporate clients wishing to bring therapy ‘in-house’ to support staff well being.
As a UKCP registrered integrative therapist I offer a combination of Clinical Hypnotherapy, Cognitive therapy, Psychotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming, and Counselling. Therapy is brief, dynamic and solution focused, using the principles of transpersonal and positive psychology.
I became registered with the Minnesota Institute of Advanced Communication skills after completing 13 hours of Continous Professional development for the AHH-sponsored OCD and Anxiety Disorders masterclass by Devan Hastings in March 2010.
My specialist interests include: Anxiety, OCD – Obsessive Compulsive disorder- using a combination of Cognitive behavioural counselling and Hypnotherapy, based on the work of Professor Jeffrey Schwartz and the 4 step programme; performance enhancement and achievement; stress management, confidence, self-esteem, Alcohol problems, Insomnia, Motivation.
Other issues covered include: Phobic anxiety; weight management; IBS; Tinnitus; Fibromyalgia; Chronic fatigue; and depression (mild to moderate).
I continued to further my development and skills as a practitioner through completion of an MSc in consciousness and Transpersonal Psychology and Transpersonal Hypnosis. Receiving an MSc with credit I completed a research thesis entitled:
A phenomenological study of experience of participation in an eight-week compassion focused, therapeutic well-being programme. This became a published article in the Spring 2013 edition of the North East branch magazine for the BPS.
I completed a one year training with the mindfulness association in 2013 and am currently completing the compassion module of the five-year training scedule with the mindfulness association.
I can be regularly heard on local radio stations such as Silk FM, Capital Radio, High Peak Radio, and Radio Derby, and more recently I have had 2 one hour programme interviews on Radio Woking on the Sunday morning show “The view from Here”. You can listen to my interview on July 5 2015 where I talked about the benefits of Mindful self compassion and how it is becoming an integral part of therapeutic interventions . NB: If you want to just listen to my piece drag the player cursor at the bottom of the page to 2:04:00 as I am speaking in the last hour of a three hour programme.
My written articles regularly feature in local press.
