“My name is Philip Christie and I am a practising dentist for close to 40 years.  I hold a Master’s degree in Dental Science as well as a Master’s degree in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.  My career has been about bringing about a kind of synthesis between Dental Science and Human Science, the Objective and the Subjective, Science and Art.  I have designed this course to provide a stress reduction/resilience protocol for dentists based on the well documented effects of a method known as Mindfulness and a Psychotherapeutic modality called Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

It aims to enhance mental, emotional and physical wellbeing as well as reducing stress and anxiety which can lead to burnout. It also has benefits in enhancing inter-personal relationships, communication and conflict resolution which are invaluable in reducing the risk of litigation. I look forward to working with you.”
