I am available to offer workshops, presentations, and/or group programs (e.g., compassion focused) that support continuing education and professional development. I am happy to support people working in a range of settings such as in outdoor education, wilderness therapy, health care, counselling and therapy, public service, and business settings.
To date, the majority of presentations I have given have been on the topic of working with people who self-injure. My areas of focus are on the therapeutic applications of mindfulness and compassion, compassionate mind training, compassion-focused therapy, working with emotions, and non-suicidal self-injury. I like to incorporate creative elements and nature into the presentations and workshops I offer whenever possible.
If your organization or group would like me to provide programs and/or training in any of these areas, please feel welcome to contact me about this.
When the presentations or training requires me to travel outside of the Kingston area, typically more advanced planning is required as this enables me to coordinate this training with the therapy services I offer (e.g., to coordinate with group therapy programs/dates).
