Approach

“Each person’s distress and struggles are unique, and I use psychological assessment and formulation as the foundation of my therapeutic work. This allows for individual and systemic factors (family, network, society, culture) to be considered together, and for a shared understanding to be developed. People who attend for therapy are encouraged to think and discover, to use humour and compassion, and to consider change. Teamwork is central to the therapy.”

Conor is trained to use a range of therapeutic modalities with a recognised evidence base, from those in the Cognitive Behavioural tradition to less-directive exploratory therapies. His most frequently used models are Compassion Focused Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy and Schema Therapy. This range allows him to work effectively with those who have identified a distinct problem in their lives, and equally with those who are aware of distress and discomfort, but are unsure what the nature or scope of the problem is.

Experience & Areas of Interest

Conor works with a wide variety of clients including those with early attachment difficulties, a history of abuse and trauma, mental illness, physical health issues, persistent relationship and personality difficulties, bereavement, loss, and those with coping and addiction problems.
