I have been researching emotional suffering, its healing and emotional well-being for over 25 years, and in my presentations I share what I have learned.
My presentations are informed by academic research and personal experience.
They are open to anybody with an interest in psychological dynamics and how they impact behaviour. I work hard to communicate in ways that are engaging, clear and compassionate.
I’ve delivered keynote presentations at conferences hosted by The Royal College of Psychiatry, The Compassionate Mind Foundation, and Pacifica Graduate Institute. I have also spoken at The Royal Society of Arts, a number of Jungian groups, the Bowlby Center and the Tavistock Clinic.
I have recently started to host my own webinars.
These are delivered live by zoom, and recorded for later viewing.
To get advanced notice of my self-hosted webinars, priority booking and discounted tickets join my mailing list.
As well as hosting the webinars listed below for my own community, I can deliver them to your community.

The live webinar will be recorded. Everybody who buys a ticket will be e-mailed a link to the recording, which will be available to view for the following 4 weeks.

Modern Western cultures have eulogised the ideal that mothers evolved to love and protect all their children instinctively and automatically, and that neglectful, hostile or infanticidal feelings and behaviour in mothers are unnatural and perhaps pathological.
Modern mothers naturally internalise these cultural beliefs, so they tend to experience deep shame whenever they feel hostility towards their children. Tragically and ironically, this maternal shame makes it even more likely that they will act out their hostility.
