Course description

Understand how and why the ways your thinking mind works creates a context for suffering and can impede effectual living. Dr Lorraine Maher-Edwards draws upon her years of personal and professional experience to provide you with the building blocks to develop freedom from your thoughts. She takes a down to earth, humorous approach to the thinking common traps we all fall in to. From a position of kindness and compassion, you will learn to treat your thoughts with a healthy dose of scepticism, enabling you to notice and let go of mental routines that don’t work for you. Dr Maher-Edwards provides you with set of simple skills and techniques that you can apply in your daily life, with bitesize audio recordings for ease of practice. The one2one consultation allows for further hands on practice and application to your own experience, all in the service of building a radically different way of relating to your thoughts.

I am a highly experienced practitioner psychologist who has over 16 years’ experience in both NHS and private practice.

I have expertise working with a wide range of the difficulties that come with the human condition; such as performance anxiety, stress, procrastination, depression, and lack of life direction. In addition, I have many years’ experience working with clients with a range of physical health problems such as fatigue, pain and long-term health conditions. I work integratively drawing upon many evidence-based psychological models such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) , mindfulness, compassion-focused therapy (CFT), and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). I feel hugely privileged to do the work I do; I enjoy working collaboratively with clients across a wide spectrum of diversities, facing social, psychological and physical challenges. I bring humour and humility to my work to find creative, workable ways for you to move towards the life you want. My strong academic background in the life sciences, coupled with my personal passion for health and movement/exercise, contributes to a deep understanding of the interaction between human physiology, evolutionary biology and psychological mindset in maintaining physical and emotional health. I believe passionately that our bodies and minds are intimately connected and I have a personal and professional commitment to empowering others to look after their health and fulfill their potential.

 

I am a skilled trainer, mentor, supervisor, and researcher and have published in various peer reviewed journals.
