Resilience Consultation description

Understanding your own personal resilience patterns is essential for change. Dr Lorraine Maher-Edwards draws upon her years of personal and professional experience to help you to explore areas where you feel stuck, dissatisfied and in need of growth and change. If you wish, use the provided questionnaires to understand your own current level of resilience and psychological flexibility. Psychological flexibility is an overarching psychological process or set of skills that over a thousand scientific studies have now shown to predict and relate closely to a vast myriad of life outcomes and psychological resilience factors. These include levels of stress, who will develop anxiety and depression and how well someone will adjust to physical illness and trauma (See Steven Hayes, A liberated Mind, 2019, Vermillion for a comprehensive overview). Psychological flexibility levels have  even been shown to impact how well we cope and adapt to the current COVID pandemic (Packenham et al., 2020).  Dr Maher-Edwards will work with you to understand your own resilience needs, and areas for development, whether that be self-guided or professionally sought. The session focus allows for flexibility based on what you want and need out of the consultation. This may include live, experiential guided exercises to facilitate exploration. Going forward, Dr Maher-Edwards can work with you to set practical, bitesize goals to continue your change process and create a sustainable resilient you.

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.
