Dr Chris Irons

Upper Street, London N1 2UQ, UK

I’m a clinical psychologist, academic, trainer and author specialising in CFT.  I first started working with Paul Gilbert in 1999, and have been involved in some of the research and development of CFT ideas for almost 20 years.

I am one of the directors of Balanced Minds, an organisation based in London and Edinburgh that specifically focuses on providing CFT for individuals, couples, families, the general public and organisations. We are keen to promote the CFT model as far and wide as possible, and supporting other therapists in their CFT practice.

I am the co-author of the ‘Compassionate Mind Workbook’ and ‘Experiencing Compassion Focused Therapy from the Inside Out’, along with the soon to be published ‘Compassionate Mind approach to Emotional Difficulties’

I was one of the founding members of the Compassionate Mind Foundation, and provide CFT training and supervision in the UK and internationally.
