Dr Chris Irons

Hi, i’m Chris. I’m a clinical psychologist specialising in how compassion and self-compassion can have powerful impact on reducing psychological distress and an increase in wellbeing

In my experience, we don’t tend to treat ourselves with the same kindness & care as we do our friends. In fact, sadly we can often treat ourselves with self-criticism and judgement that’s commonly be found to be linked to stress, anxiety and low mood. Unfortunately, this can have a significant negative affect on our ability to be the best version of us at work. 

In this online self-compassion course i’ve taken 15 years of clinical experience as a therapist & developed a short, engaging, evidence-based course to help you become more caring and supportive of yourself
