Andrew Todd Thomas, PsyD
My treatment and training in Self-Connection Psychotherapy have been life changing. I can’t recall finding a better method for enhancing my own and my clients’ well-being.

“Fresh and Novel”
I have found Self-Connection Therapy fresh and novel even after practicing psychiatry and psychotherapy for over 49 years. It has given me new, useable tools to help myself and my patients. I highly recommend the Self-Connection Academy to therapists of any age and degree of experience, who want to understand and feel more compassion for themselves and their patients.”
