Guest speaking/training/media consultancy

I am a trained teacher and I deliver training events on the subject of cults and their impact on mental health.  I can tailor talks to meet the needs of your organisation or group. 

Cult awareness talks may be useful for...​

  • Mental health professionals

  • Those working in a health and social care setting (or training to work in this sector)

  • General safeguarding training

  • Students

  • Concerned family members and friends

  • Ex-cult members

  • Religious or community groups

Past training events have explored issues such as...

  • What is a cult? (Challenges of definitions and identifying a group)

  • Personality types of cult leaders

  • Theories of thought reform/mind control

  • The psychology of persuasion

  • The structure of a cult and recruitment processes

  • Exploring case studies 

  • Escaping a cult and the impact on mental health

  • Recovery
