About Funmilayo Whitaker



My treatment methods

Compassion Focused

I have experience with compassion-focused treatment for people with mental health problems that involves guided visualizations, compassionate imagery, and other techniques to break the routine of self-criticism and improve emotional regulation. This method is used in my practice to help my patients learn the key skills required to develop the key aspects and attributes of compassion, i.e., care for well-being, sensitivity, distress tolerance, empathy, and non-judgment attitudes towards oneself.
