Our model is an integration of compassion focused therapy (CFT), positive psychology and logotherapy. All of these approaches offer significant psychological benefits to individuals who engage with them.
We love working with our clients!
Here's what they think about working with us, in their own words.
Rory is an absolute expert in this area both on an academic and industry practice level. We invited him to speak to our global employees after they worked from home for a long period of time during the coronavirus breakout. It really helped them improve their understanding of where various emotions come from and maximise their productivity after this dramatic change in working environment and structure.
Rory also helped our senior managers be more aware of their feelings from the perspective of brain science and a human evolutionary perspective...For more effective leadership, I would recommend anyone in a senior management position to use his expertise.

Rory has a gift for presenting and engaging an audience with confidence and compassion and the audience respond positively to his enthusiasm and warmth. The sessions benefit from being technically slick and professionally presented too.
This is a winning approach that gives each individual a bite-sized opportunity to consider and reflect on aspects of their mental health and wellbeing as well as the time at the end of each session to slow down their thinking and relax in a mindful way.
I fully recommend Saldo to any employer or business which is serious about enhancing their employees or customers mental wellbeing.

Having the wellbeing sessions really helped me to understand my emotions and have a technique to combat the tougher moments. I learned how to relax and sooth the brain. I can now use these techniques in everyday life.

Rory is an exceptional lecturer, the feedback from students every time has been outstanding about his lectures. He relates theory to skill and practice so well that the students feel they can apply everything he teaches into practice straight away.
Rory is a vital member of the team in counselling and psychotherapy who has been involved in undergraduate and postgraduate work. I have nothing but complete praise for his hard work and commitment to this field.
