Dr Mark Whittington

Dr Whittington has worked as a Consultant Psychiatrist for more than 30 years. During this period, he has had over 150,000 consultations and has acquired a wealth of experience dealing with mental illness at the clinical coalface. Driven by a desire to help more than one patient at a time he has condensed and crystallised his interventions in a complete system of mental health education called Metaphorical Therapy.

Metaphorical Therapy employs the power of specifically chosen metaphors to explain abstract psychological concepts in concrete digestible small pieces. Each metaphor is linked to create a “frame of understanding” upon which a substantial, simple, yet deceptive comprehensive education occurs that is aimed at prevention of mental illness.

Metaphorical Therapy has the capacity to reach the world in desperate need of practical mental health education and help.
