I am a clinical psychologist, supervisor and trainer specialising in CFT. I have been using CFT in my practice for over ten years, having attended many CFT workshops (including the three day introductory training, advanced clinical skills, CFT approaches to trauma, working with people who hear voices, chair work, compassionate leadership, and compassion focused staff support). I completed a one year postgraduate certificate in CFT at the University of Derby in 2017. I receive monthly specialist CFT supervision, and have done so for the last seven years. I co-founded and co-facilitate a local CFT peer supervision group, which has been running for five years, as well as providing individual CFT supervision for a range of psychologists and therapists. I regularly deliver CFT training to trainee clinical psychologists, and have delivered a range of CFT workshops and training sessions within my NHS trust. I have a particular interest in staff wellbeing and compassion in teams and organisations, having worked in a staff wellbeing service for two years and developing and delivering a range of compassion-focused interventions (at individual, group, and system/organisational level) during this time.
