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.
