after many happy years in London, City life started to take it’s toll on us. We watched way too much countryfile and realised that the fact that we were packing our bags to leave London every weekend was a sign we ought to return to rural life! We moved to Norfolk in 2016. Moore & Moore Living has evolved as we continue to push the boundaries of modern wellbeing services to reflect real life challenges in the 21st century. After all, no one is an island and we want to do our bit for community.
Catherine & Jonathan
Catherine Moore - Co-founder, CBT Therapist
I am fully accredited with the British Association for Behavioural &Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) therapist trained since 2012. I completed my initial Bsc in cbt training at king’s college london and have also trained in advanced contextual CBT approaches including Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Functional Analytical Psychotherapy (FAP), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), EMDR and Mindfulness. I am a member of the Association for Contextual & Behavioural Sciences and The Compassionate Mind Foundation. My core professional background is in mental health nursing.
I am an associate tutor on the post graduate CBT training programme at Norwich Medical School based at University of East Anglia. I love to share my clinical expertise with the next generations of newly qualified therapists. My approach is warm, non-judgemental, proactive and goal orientated.
I commit to living a balanced and connected lifestyle and I am dedicated to bringing these core ways of being to the wider public. I am passionate about therapy innovations and developments including providing online video therapy via skype and expanding psychology influences to the wider public including workshops, talks and retreats.
Despite my introvert tendencies, I am also a national and international conference presenter and have formally published on FAP. I have previously worked as a senior therapist and manager in a leading East London NHS psychology service and also the Priory Hospital North London. i have worked with world leaders in the field of cbt clinical practice and research and worked closely with Consultant Psychiatrist Dr. David Veale, expert in OCD, BDD and Emetophobia treatment and research. I continue to train with world experts in the field of cbt and contextual psychology.
In addition to clinical practice, I am really interested in the role of gender parity, human rights, climate change and conscious living. When I am not at work, you can usually find me in the garden, listening to music or visiting an exhibition.
Jonathan Moore - Co-founder, Artist - Curator
I share the management of the practice, curation of events and creative direction developments. I postponed my Phd in Education in London to move home to Norfolk and have been continuing my love of learning, bringing the business model to life. I am dedicated to living a mindful lifestyle and keen to consolidate this with further training and establishing meaningful creative collaborations. I previously worked at the Natural History Museum and Horniman Museum London. I am delighted to expand my curation experiences at Moore & Moore Living.
"As humans we come from a social tribe that was not designed to exist alone. Therefore, living a life that is rich in meaningful interactions and relationships is crucial to sustaining our emotional, psychological and physical wellbeing. Being present creates the space for self-care development and to hold the most important relationship of all which is a compassionate based relationship with the self. Only then can we bring our true version of ourselves into our relationships with others.
The knowledge and skills guide us in being able to hold our suffering with warmth and understanding, express our needs and wishes assertively and embrace our fears and vulnerability in the service of our values. We all want to look back when our time is up and and say "yes!". I want to look back knowing that Moore & Moore Living served others in their precious journey." - Catherine Moore
