Mandy specialises in helping couples and individuals who are struggling in their relationships where one
or both partners have experienced childhood difficulties or trauma. She has been an active member of
the Schema Therapy for Couples Special Interest Group since 2014.
Schema Therapy helps you to understand the unhealthy patterns that have been destructive in your life
and in your relationships. Mode maps give further understanding to the clashes that have taken place
between unhealthy coping modes and underlying schemas. Slowly, perseveringly and collaboratively
you will be able to set out on a different course, with a new understanding of yourself and the direction
you wish to take.

assisting organisations with their wellbeing strategies and improving mental health in their workforce.
