Fiona has many years of clinical experience in both the mental health and learning disability fields. Fiona’s main orientation for many years has been Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). She was a Board Member/Trustee for the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP) and from 2015 holds a BABCP Fellowship. Amongst many other research projects she has studied dissociation after trauma that led to a new theoretical model and scale, as well as innovative new treatments. The creation of an effective treatment service for self-harming, suicidal, ‘revolving door’ inpatients was quoted as an example of national excellence by the UK government’s National Audit Office in its House of Commons report ‘Safer Patient Services’ 2005. She has presented her research at many national and international conferences and received an award for clinical excellence from BUPA. She is an editor and co-author of ‘Cognitive Behavioural Approaches to the Understanding and Treatment of Dissociation’. With her deep knowledge of the subject and outstanding leadership qualities Dr Fiona Kennedy is a truly inspirational tutor.
Fiona’s life experiences extensively complement and enhance her teaching. For many years she and her husband, Dr Dave Pearson, went to India designing and delivering training to enable Indian volunteers to mentor rescued street and disadvantaged children (pro bono). She practices yoga, mindfulness and meditation herself and never shies away from new challenges – from hiking to diving and roof-top walking in different parts of the world.
