Neuroaffective-CBT is a cognitive-behavioural method developed and refined over the last 12 years by Daniel Mirea, a senior CBT lecturer, writer and consultant psychotherapist. This model evolved alongside the latest generation of CB therapies, in response to a need to better understand and better respond to deeply rooted emotions that feel too complex or too confusing. Often such emotions are difficult to describe and may fall under the low self-esteem umbrella, shame or guilt. Such affects are equally difficult to investigate or diagnose as they cross over into so many psychiatric disorders. Although a new and innovative therapy, NA-CBT is rooted in years of research on cognitive-behavioural techniques like exposure, which have placed CBT in a completely different league when it comes to treatment outcomes.

I am an accredited CBT Psychotherapist, a writer, senior lecturer and clinical supervisor who trained and also trains in different cognitive and behavioural approaches including traditional CBT, Compassion Focused Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Hypnosis, EMDR, Schema Therapy, Mindfulness (MBCT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, ACT or NA-CBT. With a career spanning over almost 30 years in the mental health field, I dotted many 'i's and crossed many 't's in mental health, forensic and substance misuse clinics as a clinical head, clinical supervisor or just psychotherapist. I have always felt drawn towards complex cases of low self-esteem and childhood trauma but also at the other end of the spectrum by the prospect of enhancing performance and abilities through a positive mindset. As such, over the years I developed my own behavioural approaches.. Neuroaffective-CBT mostly for chronic negative emotions, Emotion-Focused CBT for interpersonal/relationship problems and Sports-CBT for enhancing performance in sports. Through this website I will share some of my clinical experience and my research findings with you but also my passion for the human mind which will never cease to surprise me...
