I successfully completed the PG Cert in Compassion Focused Therapy at Derby University in 2016. Prior to this I completed CBT training in 2010. I was introduced to Compassion Focused Therapy in 2010 and began working in this way following attendance to workshops via the Compassionate Mind Foundation. I have kept my Mental Health Nursing registration up to date. I have completed internal NHS trust courses in supervision as well as attending the BABCP Compassion Focused Supervision workshop in 2018. I receive 1:1 CFT supervision with Tobyn Bell. I am a working member of the BABCP Compassion SIG. I have provided group CFT supervision for trainee medics and I currently provide CFT 1:1 supervision within the trust I work in as well as externally.

I began learning about CFT in 2011 and started formal CFT training in 2013. I started with the introduction to CFT, went on to complete the Advanced CFT training, and then took a deep dive into studying CFT by completing the Post-Graduate Certificate in CFT at the University of Derby under the tuition of Professor Paul Gilbert, and supervision of Dr Mary Welford. I have gained much from regular supervision with Dr Chris Irons and Dr Kate Lucre, both of whom I’ve been working with for many years. I have completed so many wonderful CFT specialist workshops since I’ve lost count! Some of the CFT trainings I have completed include CFT for trauma, complex trauma/ personality disorder/ attachment trauma, groups, staff support, eating disorders, psychosis, self-criticism, the therapeutic relationship, and chairwork.

I offer Compassion Focused Supervision, bringing compassion into the supervision process itself for an experiential and relational learning experience. With safeness and courage, we can develop your CFT or integrative practice, cultivate your 'compassionate therapist self', and support/empower you as a human being. Half my week is spent supporting colleagues with supervision and training, including supervision for the CFT Diploma. I'm an experienced CFT therapist, working with adults with Complex Trauma/Anxiety/Depression in private practice (formerly NHS IAPT/CMHT), and I also draw on ACT and EMDR. My training includes the CMF's supervisor training, as well as many CFT workshops and conferences including advanced clinical skills, chairwork, personal practice, PDs and attachment problems, FBRs and trauma. I have regular CFT supervision and supervision-of-supervision. I have a certificate in supervision from the University of Birmingham (2015) and am a BABCP Accredited Supervisor.
