I am a compassion-focused therapist and part of the training executive for the Compassionate Mind Foundation. I have co-authored the forthcoming book: Compassion Focused Therapy from the Inside Out (a self-practice/self-reflection workbook for therapists). I am also a CBT trainer, supervisor and programme-lead at the Greater Manchester CBT Training Centre (NHS) which is associated with Manchester University. I have published research on compassion and am completing a PhD in CFT at Derby University. I currently run a regional CFT peer supervision group and offer CFT supervision to individual therapists, as well as offering CFT in a Manchester clinic.
