Special interest areas

I am a CBT "third wave" specialist.

Personal Statement

I am a CBT practitioner but I work with what is called the “third wave” of CBT.  The 3rd Wave adds many innovative approaches to standard CBT.  The approaches are Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focus and more, and are all based on scientific research and neuroplasticity.

 

In my experience these new forms of therapy help clients attain more sustainable, long lasting results and psychological flexibility.
