Toni Knight is a psychotherapist and presenter who specialises in anxiety, compassion fatigue, and burnout. She has over 20 years of experience, beginning with her own compassion fatigue when she was a psychologist in a juvenile detention centre. Since then Toni has taught professional skills to welfare and youth work students, taught counselling skills to hypnotherapists, and taught workers to manage burnout and compassion fatigue.
Her passion is to support and empower professional caregivers, believing that their work is both critical to our collective wellbeing, and generally undervalued. She is writing her first book on the subject of burnout and compassion fatigue, and has a particular interest in the many powerful barriers to implementing familiar self-care strategies.
Toni believes that a clear, simple message paints a thousand words, especially after five clients, three meetings and a dozen memos.
