Events & Webinars

What to expect from my presentations:

I have been researching emotional suffering, its healing and emotional well-being for over 20 years, and in my webinars I share what I have learned.

My webinars 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.

Self-Hosted Webinars

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 Archetypal Death Mother and Toxic Shame: Complimentary approaches to a traumatising inner dynamic

This presentation interweaves Jungian concepts of the archetypal Death Mother with an evolutionary and psychological understanding of toxic shame. The aim is to show that by bringing together these two approaches, we gain a deeper understanding of this traumatising inner dynamic.

When toxic shame is reflected in the images of the archetypal Death Mother, it is personified in a way that hits chords. When the archetypal Death Mother is reflected in evolutionary and emotional research, it gains clarity.

Ultimately, when the language of this archetype is juxtaposed with the language of emotions, we see both ourselves and others with more consciousness.
